Exceeded great expectations!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I, along with two other couples, spent a glorious weened at this historic home in Lexington. We had great expectations for the home based on the description and reviews, but it even EXCEEDED our great expectations for multiple reasons. The spaciousness enabled us to maximize our shared times together in multiple places--living room, kitchen, back porch, and game room/bar (converted garage). Alternatively, the upstairs bedrooms provided ultimate privacy as if no one else was in the house. Additionally the beds were super comfortable and the bathrooms had both modern and antique appointments. Then there was the location. We walked to brunch at Stella's and had one of the most scrumptious meals ever, as well as walking in the other direction to an art fair in the park. Last but not least, Nita welcomed us with Kentucky hospitality, provided excellent suggestions for restaurants, checked in with us throughout the weekend, and truly made us feel as if we were experiencing "home" away from home. Thank you, Greg. Your home is amazing. Thank you, Nita. You are the ultimate concierge. Yes, indeed, our great expectations were exceeded!

Best VRBO Experience to Date

  • 5 of 5

Do you know that feeling when you hit "submit" to confirm your VRBO rental and then you start to wonder if the house is real, if the pictures are accurate, etc? Well, don't stress when confirming this property. Whatever you see and hear fails in comparison to the actual cleanliness, finish-out, and charm of this amazing home located within walking distance of anywhere you would want to go downtown. I know we will be back for sure.

Beautiful, Clean home in the perfect Location! Look no further for a place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Gregory and Nita were fantastic to work with, and we could not have been more pleased with the home! The outdoor garage area is an amazing recreation spot with pool and darts! The kitchen was gorgeous and was more than we needed for all our needs. The home was clean and the location is perfect for anywhere in Lexington, especially Downtown events. I would fully recommend this home to everyone who is interested, and I plan to stay here again in the future. This wonderful historic home, with beautiful modern renovations was the perfect place for our Keeneland weekend.

Great weekend in Lexington

  • 5 of 5

The house was everything that was promised.

We hosted a tailgating party for our group and each of the KU baseball

parents thought it would be a perfect spot for having an extended stay or hosting a grad party.

They were incredibly accommodating with our special requests! We would stay there again in a heartbeat!
