About Jade Dixon

I moved to KY to inspire my daughters love of horses and help her seek a career in the horse industry. She and I fell in love with this home the minute we saw it as I had been collecting western décor for years. I had outgrown my former home and needed more land for our horses. We have 4 beautiful horses which is why we named the property 4 STAR HORSE FARM. Stormy is a beautiful buckskin Chincoteague pony. She is very gentle horse, a favorite with children and adults alike. Chocolate Chip is a beautiful Appaloosa with a hand print on his side. 'Chip' has been shown in Lexington horse park, where he has always gotten a lot of attention for his dramatic black on white spots. Marley is a Back quarter horse with a curious personality. Caliente is a roan thoroughbred with an arrow on her blaze. We love our horses. All make the farm unique with a lovely log house with a beautiful horse barn.

Jade Dixon purchased this estate in 2010

Why Jade Dixon chose Kentucky

This house is a destination in itself! No need to go anywhere else! The log house was custom built as a bed & barn by the Amish. We have taken great care to furnish the house with the most comfortable beds, best pillows, fluffiest towels. Extra details to make your stay as comfortable as possible. With tall windows to take advantage of the beautiful views. There is decking around the house for outdoor entertaining. As well as a gas grill for you to use. Also a fire-pit for family fun to enjoy s'mores and roast marshmallows. If you want to enjoy local attractions: The home is 15 minutes to Mammoth Cave in 1 direction, 15 minutes to Bowling Green in the other Beech Bend is 10-12 minutes, Corvette Museum is 10 minutes. Glasgow is 15 minutes east of the house. Nashville is 40 minutes south. The house has 2 grocery stores 5 minutes away. CALL 270.205.7340 FOR DISCOUNTS AND PROMOTIONS.

What makes this estate unique

Both the master bedroom and living area have massive stone fireplaces. The house has an eclectic blend of modern and vintage western decor decorated (in the Ralph Lauren style of his personal Ranch). The master suite has a beautiful big spa tub. On the Deck enjoy a BBQ and dine while watching the horses, deer and wild turkey. Beautiful sunrises and gorgeous sunsets. With amazing views for all seasons! With privacy and luxury!

Guestbook comments from the manager

It was like I had known Jade forever. Such a delight to talk to and get to know. She was so accommodating. She gave us tips as to what to see and do around Bowling Green. The log house was beautiful and accommodated my husband and, our kids, and grandkids. The grandkids loved standing on the porch watching the horses every morning and night. Since it was our 40th wedding anniversary, I booked Carrie G. a photographer from Sur La Lune out of Bowling Green, to take family pictures. What beautiful pictures with the horses and the log house and the beautiful rolling hills in the background! Memories captured forever!

Exploring Kentucky

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at 4 Star Horse Farm! From the moment we stepped into the home, we were refreshed and encouraged! Wonderfully air conditioned, clean and neat, roomy, and decorated with so many interesting artifacts and pictures. Jade was a warm and helpful host, giving us lots of info on local sites and things for children to do. We loved her horses! We enjoyed seeing them out in the pasture every morning and evening, and she even let us help groom them one evening. My husband and I, our daughter and son-in-law, and two grandsons spent a perfect week in Kentucky "horsing around", visiting Churchill Downs in Louisville, Kentucky Horse Park in Lexington, exploring some caves, and relaxing at Jade's home. What a great way to experience Kentucky! Thanks so much, Jade! You made our week so special. I would highly recommend Jade's beautiful log home for a taste of Kentucky hospitality in an area close to so many attractions, especially if you are a horse lover!

Frances Biegar review

After staying in B&B'S over many years our friends recommended Jade's property. It was our 1st time using Homeaway. I highly recommend both Homeaway and this home. The whole experience was a delight! The house was just as advertised. Clean, comfortable and relaxing even with 18 of us in our group. The owner was very hospitable. She was great to make sure we were happy with everything. We were preparing to cook on the grill when finding the gas tank had been emptied. She replaced it in under 15 minutes. With a great stay & perfect customer service we are planning to do this annually. Thank you so much!

We had so much fun!

  • 5 of 5

When we arrived we were surprised & delighted with the house. It was even better than the pictures. The ambiance is perfect! I want a house like this for my own! The layout is perfect as you walk thru the doors you have a great view of the barn and outdoors. The layout is really awesome as it really gives a lot of space. With a group of 12 we didn't feel the least bit crowded. The bedrooms were all very spacious and private. The owner was really a delight. We loved the horses and had the chance to see them shooting a Hallmark Movie UNCOMMON GRACE on the property! It was as if we landed on another planet. We can't wait to see it when it comes out next year!! Thank you for sharing this awesome experience and place with us!!

We were celebrating our anniversary. The owners were great to fit us in at the very last minute but even greater to have fresh flowers and a perfect Chardonnay Harry & David chilling when we arrived!! They were the perfect hosts. As we arrived late but they were there to greet us, show us around and make sure were were more than pleased with everything. The house has an awesome Master Bedroom as well as the all the bedrooms give lots of privacy. The spa tub was a big bonus!! We loved every minute and are planning our next trip back ASAP!!

  • 5 of 5

We needed a place to rest and unwind . This the place! The horses have a very beautiful calming and so sweet. I felt such a connection to them. The house was quiet, peaceful and relaxing. We hiked the back of the property and came up on a Doe and her fawn. So beautiful! The owner was perfect as she showed us the house and made sure we were good with everything! We really appreciate the thoughtfulness and will be coming back! It was worth every penny! Time well spent!! Thank you so much !! Till we meet again!!

We came into town to pick up our new Corvette. The house was available and the owner was quick to respond to everything ASAP. She made sure we had good directions. The house was clean with really awesome decor! We enjoyed the fireplace and grilled on the deck. The house is perfectly situated so to be very quiet but close enough to everything including a quick run into town for Beer! We will be back as we want to try the car at NCM Raceway this Spring! We highly recommend this place to everyone! Thank you so much for everything!!!
