Overview

About the property

Welcome to Hutchison Station, our renovated 1890’s train depot. Explore the horse farms, Bourbon trail and central KY while staying on our working thoroughbred horse farm right in the heart of the bluegrass.

Hutchison Station was part of the L&N railroad system between 1890 and 1950 with passenger and freight service between Lexington and Paris. It was the center of the local community and included a post office, 2 blacksmith shops, general store and cattle pens.

Hutchison station is divided into two ground floor apartments. The “Limerick” (named for Lisa’s event horse) has hardwood flooring throughout, 12’ ceilings and is furnished with local handcrafted and antique furniture. The Limerick has two en-suite bedrooms each with a king size bed. The living area includes counter seating for four plus table seating for four.

Hutchison station is approx half way between Lexington and Paris-

• 10 minutes to downtown Paris.

• 15 minutes to the Kentucky Horse Park

• 20 minute to downtown Lexington.

John-George and Sadie our miniature donkeys happily accept treats.

Free wifi.

Couldn’t have asked for more

  • 5 of 5

While this is my first experience with a VRBO, I don’t think I could have been any luckier. Steve was very congenial and helpful. The place was better than the pictures. Don’t hesitate to book this one, you won’t be disappointed.

Amazing Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful property. We arrived at dusk and the fireflies danced in the fields for us. Very quiet and relaxing. The bedrooms were amazing and really appreciated that each had their own bathroom. Next time we will stay for a week!

A little slice of heaven

  • 5 of 5

The train station is immaculately renovated, spacious, and gracious. The view of the horse pasture from the front yard and visits from the mares and their foals was a delight. While private and secluded, the location is not far from all of the major points of interest in Lexington. Don't miss Windy Corner Market for breakfast, lunch, or dinner. It is less than 3 miles from this location and we loved the casual setting and wholesome food by renowned local chef. Our hosts were helpful and welcoming. We'll be back!

Great!

  • 5 of 5

Very, very nice and spacious place to stay. Would highly recommend! Owner Steve was helpful and hospitable. Easy to get to, close to both Paris and Lexington, KY. We took a tour of Clairborne Farms, which was only about 10-15 minutes away and also visited the Kentucky Horse Park, about 10 minutes away. Great place we plan to return to!
