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 house 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 house 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!

Highly recommend.... beautiful great getaway

  • 5 of 5

A small group of us decided on this house for a random weekend away. The house itself is spacious, well furnished, clean, and very comfortable. A really nice kitchen and 60 inch smart TV are bonuses. The property is huge and there's tons of space to run around. We spent most of our time at the fire pit. Everyone loved the horses! For the price, this is one of the most generously furnished and well-maintained rental properties I've ever stayed in. It's an easy drive to Nashville, the NCM Raceway and Mammoth Caves. There's also a nice Kroger and Starbucks less than 10 minutes away.

Jade was very responsive and has a great property. I would highly recommend this for anyone

Great Home Perfect for the Holidays

  • 5 of 5

My family came from several directions and met in the middle. We were given great directions. We had no problems checking in. The house was very nicely decorated. The kitchen was great for cooking and the dining room easily accommodated our large family of 13. The owner was very generous with everything and made sure we were more than comfortable. The whole family enjoyed the horses. The owner was very kind to take the time to give each of the kids a ride. We were able to visit the National Park as it was a very short 15 minutes from the home. We also enjoyed the live Nativity in town. We have great pictures of everyone!! Highly recommend this house! So glad we found this home! We plan on returning!!

Spacious, secluded, and relaxing home

  • 5 of 5

The host described the amenities, location, and house accurately. We found the home not only well-maintained and clean, but also stocked with many classic (and classical) novels and movies for guests to enjoy. Customer service was exceptional, particularly given how the host provided consumables -- such as dishwasher detergent -- immediately upon request, and inquired regularly yet non-intrusively of what we may need. She even made our group of 6 adults and 1 child feel so welcome as to make the stay feel like a second home to the child, who then refused to leave on the day of our departure! We would recommend this residence to our colleagues, friends, and family. We also checked accessibility to karst terrain nearby, particularly Mammoth Cave, in the planetary analog context. The location will work perfectly for research groups of up to 15 members when conducting field exploration in the Mammoth cave system. The drive did not exceed 10 minutes for us.

wonderful property, great hostess

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great time staying on Jade's farm. The house was large and roomy, and waking up to see the horses out each morning was a bonus. It is located in a very quiet area and was very relaxing. Jade was a great hostess. She answered all of our questions and had a lot of ideas for us to do activities with the kids in the area. Highly recommended!
