Overview

About the property

Breathtaking Loft | 900 sf | Massive Windows | Spectacular Views

Stay at one of the most breathtaking spaces in downtown Louisville. This loft is located on one of the top two floors of a former industrial building. We boast 7 1/2+ ft windows with gorgeous views of the City, the Ohio River + the lush Floyds Knobs hills beyond. In each loft the furniture + open floor plan is configured to allow guests to have as many queen beds as they need while hosting friends + family in comfort. Our amenities are truly outstanding + we believe you will have an amazing time.

DESCRIPTION — Stay at one of the most unique + breathtaking places in downtown Louisville. Open the door to this 900 square foot penthouse loft, with 12 foot ceilings + in front of you are 20 feet of windows overlooking the heart of the City. The windows are 20 feet in length and 7 1/2+ feet in height. Every day I wake up deliriously happy because the first thing I see in the morning is this view + I stay that way all day for the same reason. I would love for you to experience this + more during your time in Louisville!

A string of adjectives for you that describe my space. . . Sun-drenched, Modern, Urban + Industrial Chic. The open floor plan allows you to enjoy time together with your friends + the distinct spaces created using groupings of furniture allow you to have more intimate gatherings when you choose. The glazed concrete floors highlight the raw, industrial origin of the space while providing a luxurious feel. The carefully chosen decor creates a sumptuous interior for a truly comfortable stay in an edgy space.

This loft is 1 of 8 penthouse, south-facing + cityview lofts in the historic Glassworks Building in downtown Louisville. Glassworks is a multi-use facility dedicated to the art of glass, featuring 2 working glass studios, 2 glass galleries, a walk-in workshop + daily tours. That gives you a lot to do before you even step outside the building.

We do offer some other spaces that you may be interested in...check out our listings VRBO #631207 + #622530 to see what else we offer….

We have the same amenities in all our lofts — the same bathroom, the same kitchen, the same couch, etc. The only difference (aside from decor) is size / square footage + number of bathrooms. Amazingly, there’s even more information we could give you on our whole set-up + if you are interested in the overwhelming amount of details we have for you, just give us a holler y’all ;-D

DETAILS — In short, we customize the lofts to meet our guests’ needs. The lofts are completely flexible furniture-wise, in no small part so that each guest can meet their particular objectives with the space. We find there are three types of guests: one that wants to stay within a particular budget for a large group, one that is a small group or couple seeking a luxurious + spacious vacation home in the heart of downtown Louisville + one that is seeking a Sweet Spot between the number of beds we can put in a loft + the amount of spaciousness we can provide. Whatever you desire, we can achieve!!

Sleeping — Sleeps up to 12 people (that's up to 6 queen-size beds at 2 people per bed)

There are 2 distinct sleeping areas + because of the floor plan you can sleep up to 2 couples with visual privacy + up to 12 with less privacy. All of our beds are memory foam mattresses (topped with more memory foam!) + we have even more memory foam toppers on hand for people who almost want to suffocate in the plushness of all this memory foam. And for our firm-mattress fans, we can remove the memory foam toppers to make the bed less soft. Also, we wash all of our bedding including our quilts, blankets + body pillowcases each + every time. And we use 500 thread count sheets + mattress pads. Our apologies in advance for the trouble you are going to have getting yourself out of bed! But we’re not sorry… we just love you that much!!

Bathroom — 1 Bathroom + for guest numbers above 6, access to a second bathroom (entry from the hallway) will be made available.

One of the first things you’ll notice is stacks of plush, hotel-quality white towels… we’ve got your back on this! There is a shower with a tub, toilet, sink, mirror + several shelves for toiletries. In the shower you will find dispensers full of shampoo, conditioner + bath gel. On + in the vanity you will find hand soap, makeup removing pads, cotton balls, Q-tips + black washcloths for makeup removal.

Eating + Dining areas — Dining area seats 2-12+ people

Good news! We have the technology to set up a table to accommodate the size of your party, whatever that number may be!! Our tables fold down to accommodate parties as small as two + can be combined together to accommodate parties of almost any size. They are easy to move + can be put discreetly to the side when not in use. We also offer a combination of modern, sleek, stackable metal chairs + leather chairs (that are soft like butter).

Speaking of butter… do you want to eat? Good! The Kitchen is stocked with appliances + amenities for your dining pleasure. Each kitchen comes stocked with a Keurig Coffee Maker + coffee pods, bottled water, sugar + sweeteners, creamer + black tea… we even have a teapot! If there is an appliance that you want, chances are I have it in my personal space + can make it available to you. As they say, "Ask + you shall receive" — well, most probably, if I have what you are looking for! One last thing, we have extra tables + chairs and quite a few can be put in your space without getting in your way.

Entertaining + Lounging — Welcome to the Lounge Pit. . .

I have a large modular, gray leather, sectional sofa that can be set up as an L-shaped couch or as, what I believe is technically called, a Lounge Pit with the extra ottoman filling the center. It's a great spot to chill + watch a movie or two or even get some work done on your laptop. Speaking of getting work done, you will have high speed fiber WiFi coursing through your computer. But what will you listen to whilst you are trapped in the Lounge Pit? How about my iPhone/Android/iPad/Tablet/Whatever-System-You-Use-For-Music speakers. Yeah, I think that should about do it. Oh wait, there is an HDTV in said lounging area. Yep, that's to entertain you, the lounge-y one lounging in the Lounge Pit.

LAWYERLY TALK:

No smoking + no pets (I would get kicked out of my place + I know you don't want that ;-D)

Security Deposit + Rental Agreement required

Please read the house rules thoroughly before making a reservation. Thanks! Let's talk!!

This loft is a complete home (condo) that is 900 square feet. You will have access to everything inside your condo.

This is a secure building. Accordingly, access is provided with keycards that will be issued to you when you check in. One keycard for each guest in your party. Therefore, please be certain that you make your reservation for the correct number of people. Thanks!

I live in the building + have a team working with me, so either myself or my team will be nearby if needed.

Great Forecastle Experienxe

  • 5 of 5

The place was beautiful and conveniently located to the downtown area. Walking distance from Forecastle, restaurants, and distilleries. The team at the venue couldn't possibly have been more accommodating - Emily & Sarah are amazing. Highly reccomend for large parties & gatherings.

Great lofts, location, and service

Everything was smooth and easy, the lofts were perfect for our 12-person group. I would highly recommend Sarah's lofts to anyone.

Dungeon like abode.

  • 1 of 5

The location would easily earn two stars.

The property is extremely overated. An up town loft is not what I would have described this property as. The location is not user friendly at all. This portion of town seems to close up and lock its doors at 5pm. Plan on a long hike to find dinner after 5pm. The apartment was gloomy in appearance with the obvious warehouse décor. The ceiling has paint pealing off and uncovered junction boxes with visible electrical wiring. with There were multiple lights switched in each room with one or two that actually worked. The small hallway where the closet was located didn't have a light at all. I had to use the light on my phone to put my clothes away. The kitchen and bathroom area were modern and user friendly but again, dark and gloomy with minimal lighting. The staff were friendly and cooperate at check in and met me at the door and provided building and parking passes, but checking out I was on my own. I had to use my parking pass to exit the garage and then find a place to park at a meter and run in back in to the Security desk.

Overall not an appealing stay. I have asked my company to remove this from our list of business stay locations, but to feel free to recommend it to the inlaws that you hold a grudge against.

Great loft

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a great time! The loft is great with all the advertised amenities. The kitchen had nice equipment with all the basics. (Except wine glasses but we managed !) We were a little intimidated by some of the high tech stuff in the loft but considering no one in our group even owns a smart phone we did pretty good. Sarah was able to answer our tech questions. Sarah was very easy to work with and upgraded our loft and allowed for flexible check in and check out. We enjoyed the building the loft is in. It is in walking distance to museums and reastraunts.

We would recently stay again!

Great view and wonderful accommodations

  • 5 of 5

My two friends and I were looking for a quick stop overnight in Louisville as we were traveling along the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. This was a great location, within walking distance to good restaurants, and the check-in and check-out process was a breeze. We were able to park our car right across the street. The view of the Ohio River was great too! Wonderful and we would stay again.

Staying here, you are on the 2.5 mile “Bourbon Line”, the gateway to Bourbon country. Anchored between the Peerless Distilling Company two blocks to our west and Copper & Kings to our east, we sit on a line of bourbon attractions — Evan Williams, Angel’s Envy + the Jim Beam Urban Stillhouse. Grease Monkey Distillery + Moonshine University are also just a few blocks south of the Line. There’s even more amber in our future… the Old Forester Urban Distillery + Rabbit Hole Distilling are opening in late 2017 + Michter’s Micro-Distillery is projected to open in 2018. Welcome to the heart of bourbon distilling in Louisville!!

Yes, we are swimming in bourbon + yet Louisville contains so much more…

Within just a 2-block radius you can:

— Gaze at glass blowing artisans working on the ground level;

— Walk to the world-renowned 21C museum which houses the restaurant Proof on Main + the 21C contemporary art museum. 21C is open 24/7 (gentlemen, you MUST visit the men’s room while you are there!);

— Meander down Museum Row which includes the Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, Glassworks, the Frazier History Museum, the Kentucky Museum of Art and Craft (the KMAC Museum), 21C 24-hour Museum, the Kentucky Science Center, the Muhammad Ali Center + The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts. We are located directly on Museum Row as part of the historic Glassworks District;

— Imbibe at Bourbon Distilleries: Evan Williams + Peerless;

— Or jog to the Louisville Loop for your morning run in Waterfront Park along the Ohio River

The closest grocery + liquor store is in the CVS at 505 S 4th St, just a 5-8 minute walk from here.

ENTERTAINMENT: Centrally located for walking or driving a very short distance to some of the best dining + bars in Louisville — Downtown/Main Street (you can see it from the window!); SOFO/4th Street Live (0.6 miles); E Market Street/NuLu (1.3 miles); Old Louisville (2 miles); Bardstown Road/The Highlands (3 miles); and Frankfort Avenue/Clifton (3 miles).

I could keep going, but you are only staying for a couple of days, right? If our siren song has enticed you to stay longer or to plan your return, let us know + we can suggest an itinerary just for you!
