About Marilyn Bryan

My husband is a Louisville native and longtime barber, whose shop is right next door in our home. I've lived in the city for 30-plus years and love our beautiful neighborhood!

Why Marilyn Bryan chose Beechmont

We bought this house from our next-door neighbor and friend Kitty, who lived here until she was almost 98 years old! For several years, we used it as a guest house for out-of-town family and friends and then started offering it to other travelers, too. To us, it will always be known as "Kitty's house."

What makes this house unique

Kitty's house is just a few minutes from I-65 and I-264, and you can take 3rd Street north through Old Louisville and be downtown in 10 minutes. We live right next door and are available if you have any questions or need a recommendation.

Wonderful Quaint Home with a Convenient Location & Fabulous Owner

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at Kitty's House. It was wonderful to say the least. The location was very convenient (for we were attending a trade show at the Kentucky Expo Center) and easy to get around. The house was very comfortable and we felt right at home. The beds and pillows were VERY comfortable, which is not always the case at some places. My husband and I even got to enjoy some ping pong in the basement between events.

Marilyn was especially nice. She gave use ideas for food (even a few obscure suggestions via text after we arrived) and directions when the interstate was shut down. We HIGHLY recommend this place to anyone who is staying in the area.

Cute house and excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Overall loved our stay at Kitty's house! Marilyn is so sweet. House was very comfortable and absolutely loved having the washer and dryer. Marilyn was more than accommodating with us having to leave early. Great location near the Kentucky Expo center where we were attending a show. Will definitely stay here next year.

Great Little Get-A-Way!

  • 5 of 5

I would absolutely book here again. The neighborhood felt safe. The home was spacious, clean and very comfortable. It’s an older house, but has been maintained beautifully over the years. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. While my husband and I enjoyed watching Netflix in front of a cozy fireplace, the kids had a ball playing ping-pong in the basement.

The owner, next door, was very welcoming. She gave us our privacy but was responsive to questions we texted her throughout the weekend (extra bedding for the kids, recommendations to good restaurants, etc). Her response time was impressive.

Overall, it was an extremely positive experience!

A great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

The house is immaculate and was perfect for 2 women who have known each other since 1950. The bedrooms are quite nice with the bathroom in between. The kitchen is well equipped, although we ate out much of the time. It was nice having a dining room for breakfast, etc. The living room was comfy for both of our first binge watching on Netflix. We plan to return next year!!
