About Denise Bessler
As former educators, we love people! We operate a bed & breakfast, antique shop & an events venue + catering facility, but often don't have the space to accommodate larger families or groups so we decided to replace our previous home/vacation rental with a similar house to allow us to have our own family gathering place and a place for others to enjoy as well!
Denise Bessler purchased this Chateau / Country House in 2015
Why Denise Bessler chose Washington County
Beautiful architectural structure & setting, perfect layout and accommodations for groups- up to 18 people drew us to this house. We love the outdoors and privacy and this has plenty of both! The Louisville/Southern Indiana area has many attraction and events to make an adventuresome vacation for anyone.
What makes this Chateau / Country House unique
Water feature, private balconies & patios, wonderful views, pool, hot tub, 10 acres of hiking, pure luxury in a peaceful, private setting. Spacious house with beds for 12 & sleeper sofas for 6. Lots of space to get the entire group together as well as private areas for conversation & family time. Kid & family friendly!

Great home for large groups
We just returned from a 4 night stay at Tom and Denise's home...we had such a great time! The house is immaculate and beyond well cared for. The grounds are so pretty, really the pictures do not do it justice. We met up with four families from around the country for our yearly reunion, and everyone enjoyed the secluded location. Coming from the Chicago area, it was nice to get off the grid for a while. There was plenty of room for the kids to spread out, and they LOVED the pool area. The lower level was perfect for all of them to have sleepovers together, while the adults hung out upstairs. Two kitchens were super helpful, as a second fridge is a must with this group. We had such an amazing visit with everyone, and we truly appreciate the use of your beautiful home! Thanks again Tom & Denise!
Thank you for the kind remarks. Knowing it met your expectation makes it worth all of the hard work we put into providing our home for others to enjoy.
Great place for a big family
We were totally happy with every aspect of this house and property. It is well maintained, very clean, roomy and comfortable. It is tucked away in the country so a drive of 20+ min for groceries is expected, but since someone was always making a day-trip to Louisville that was never an inconvenience. Our Louisville (45 min) and local Indiana outings included bourbon distilleries, wineries, horseback riding, shopping, biking underground in the limestone quarry, horse-races at Churchill Downs and more. Slept 10 adults and two teens easily in the five bedrooms and hide a bed in the finished basement family room. We also had 7 little grandkids there sleeping in port-a-cribs we brought along, plenty of room.
Fantastic Thanksgiving Family Get Together
This was an amazing place for a large family to get together and just be "family". The home is secluded yet not far from areas of interest, shopping, and of course Louisville. The kitchen's were amazing. The hot tub was relaxing. Nicely decorated and lots of space for everyone, especially when one needs "alone"time. Landscaping is lovely, and had it been summer we would have enjoyed the lawns, woods, and pool a great deal.
Do wish the fireplace had been working, since it was Thanksgiving and I have ALWAYS wanted a fireplace located where this was, between rooms! Fantastic placement. There is always a next time. :)
The owners were accomodating, pleasant, helpful, and attentive to our needs. Both Tom and Denise were SUPER! Can not say enough good things about them. This was the first time we did something like this, and it went off wonderfully for us, all our children, and grandchildren were as happy as could be.
This was the second time we have stayed at this rental... just as good as the first time! Owners are kind and helpful! This is a great place for a family gathering... lots to do!
Wonderful place for a family vacation
I emailed the owners with questions. They got back to me right away. House,and pool were spotless. Had a little issue with the hot tub,they came with in the hour. It's a very big home,with plenty of bedrooms,bathrooms two very nice equipped kitchens. Very private. No one close by. We will definitely stay there again
Our group of 9 ladies had a great time at this beautiful home. Everything we needed was there, and it was spotless. The weather was perfect for pool time. We couldn't figure out the TV so Denise and Tom were there within 30 minutes to help us out. They are a lovely couple and their puppy was adorable. This is the 33rd year our group has been doing an annual outing, and this was by far one of our favorite places! Thank you!
Centrally located for the best entertainment & recreation the Louisville, Ky & Southern Indiana area has to offer- canoeing, gambling casinos, boating, fishing, golf, horse racing, museums, shopping, Ky State Fair, college & semi-pro sports, & more.
