With all the amenities of home, PondView Cottage is the perfect home base for exploring Lexington and surrounding Bluegrass area attractions. The cottage sits on 5 private acres.

Views of a beautiful, stocked, pond from almost every room and horses grazing in the fields of the adjacent farm set the stage for total relaxation. You can enjoy the privacy of a country setting, yet be in the heart of downtown Lexington or shopping at Hamburg Pavilion in less than 15 minutes.

You'll find this tastefully decorated home inviting, charming, cozy, and comfortable.

Bedroom 2 is furnished with a Queen bed; Bedroom 3 has two Twin beds. Bedrooms 2 and 3 share a hall bath with combination tub/shower.

Enjoy the peaceful sounds of the country while relaxing on the covered back porch, or stroll down to the pond or barn to take some memorable pictures.

PondView Cottage is located on one of Kentucky's designated scenic routes and surrounded by other designated scenic routes...a leisurely drive down beautiful Paris Pike is a must.

Beautiful any time of the year...whether it's horses, sports, history or just the enjoying it's scenic countryside, Kentucky has it all.

Why Phyllis Gregory chose Lexington

We have always enjoyed the peace and privacy of a country setting, but wanted the convenience of urban living. PondView Cottage offers the best of both...guests can enjoy the quite of the country, yet be downtown Lexington in a matter of minutes.

What makes this cottage unique

It's close proximity to Interstates I-75 and I-64, Hamburg Pavilion, downtown Lexington, the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland, Bluegrass Airport, and renowned horse farms make PondView Cottage the ideal vacation base for visitors.

Always perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Pondview Cottage several times while in town for horse shows at the Horse Park. It is always just perfect for us, and feels like a home away from home. Thank you Phyllis for always providing a great experience and a wonderful place to stay!

Owner's Response: Lisa, thanks so very much for taking the time to provide a review. I do my best to ensure that each time you stay, the cottage is still as clean and welcoming as the first. It is such a such a comforting place to much better than the typical subdivision or hotel experience. The rural area is peaceful, yet so close to anything you may want to do. And, of course, it's the perfect area for all my Horse Park visitors. I believe that probably 80% of my guests are those who plan to visit or participate in events at the Horse Park.

FABULOUS Lexington Rental

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 adults stayed at the Pondview Cottage in early July 2017 to attend the Mustang Makeover Event at The Kentucky Horse Park. We could not have picked a better place was spotless comfortable ....beds/linens comfy ....& back porch was great for our long evening discussions of the day's events. The surrounding area near the cottage was picture perfect......gave us "city folks" some Lexington memories we won't ever forget. We are experienced vacation renters & this location is a "must come back". You cannot go wrong in renting this cottage. The owner, Phyllis Gregory, was very pleasant to work with. Hawkins Family from California, South Carolina & Kentucky

Owner's Response: Larry, thanks for the fabulous review. I am glad your experience was a great one. My goal is that everyone enjoy the cottage as much as you. You were great guests. I do hope that your heading was supposed to say Larry, Judy & Doug, not "Dog"...(smile), as I want other potential guests to know that, as a general rule, I do not accept pets.

Fabulous Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

What an awesome cottage in the beautiful outskirts of Lexington! This quaint cottage had everything and more. From comfortable beds to a great back porch, we could not have asked for a better place to spend a few days catching up with our family. Phyllis was more than accommodating - with just a phone call, she gave us terrific recommendations for groceries, shopping, sightseeing and restaurants. It was hard to believe that downtown Lexington was only a 15 minute drive away while enjoying the scenery! If you are looking for an affordable, well-equipped place to stay, PondView Cottage is perfect! Thanks, Phyllis for everything!

Beautiful Property in the Heart of Horse Country

  • 5 of 5

Friends and I were in the area for a bike ride, and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Pondview cottage. The cottage is unique, in that it iss an accessible property situated in the heart of gorgeous horse farms. The owner, Phyllis, was gracious and accommodating and greeted us upon arrival. We really enjoyed relaxing on the back patio, listening to the birds and the quiet life of the area. The house was immaculate, air-conditioned, and had everything we needed for our stay. Recommended wholeheartedly.
