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.

We've stayed at this property 3 times. We love the home, the animals and all of the land. Steve and Lisa were as hospitable as always! We'll definitely be back. Thank you!

Awesome -- Wonderfully Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

Great place to relax, renew and rest,. surrounded by the greatness of Kentucky horse farms. We enjoyed the beautifully decorated condo. While modern it was warm and cozy. The living area was spacious. Plus the on suite bathrooms were great.

Lisa and Steve were great hosts.

We would go back!

The home was very comfortable and beautiful. Everything was available. The beds were comfortable. It was close enough to town but yet felt like you were in the country. Would definitely return if in the area again.

Fabulous

  • 5 of 5

Outstanding location! Fabulous owners. Very generous and gracious. We had the opportunity to discuss the history of the building and land, take a short tour and even found the old railroad. The horses were beautiful. The place was beautifully decorated.... will be back next year!

Beautiful country life close to everything!

  • 5 of 5

This property was exceptional. The location is convenient to Lexington proper and the surrounding area, the Bourbon Trail, and horse racing and activities. The restoration of this property was done extremely well with high end accents. The living space and bedrooms were roomy and comfortable, and we enjoyed sitting outside in the evening enjoying the quiet and beauty of the countryside. The clincher, of course, was the fresh roses on the table and the homemade cookies! What a great touch! We would stay here again if the opportunity arises, hands down.
