Rent our house for the Kentucky Derby

Coming to Louisville for the Kentucky Derby in 2019? We have a house for you.  

Whether you call it cozy, hygge, or koselig we've been looking for ways to make our 1890 House more warm and inviting since we moved in nearly two years ago. It's a bit overwhelming as a project, to say the least. I never liked the living room corner with the little TV that we never watched (not with a super comfy TV room upstairs!) so we finally hit on an aha moment today: just move the chair from the other corner over! A visit with the always lovely folks at @mahoniastudio later we had some greenery, and I brought in our gorgeous print from @katetillmanphotography and some travel treasures for the mantel, plus a vintage wool blanket and suddenly it's a corner I want to curl up in this winter! #justaddbourbon

  1. Hi Dana! I can’t believe it’s been six months since my husband and I rented your lovely house for our once in a lifetime Derby adventure. We loved your hospitality, and had such a wonderful time. I’ll never forget walking through the neighborhood, as the storm approached, with folks coming out onto their porches asking if I was far from home. Derby Day dawned sunny and lovely, and if you recall, you were the big winner of the day with I’ll Have Another!

    If anyone is thinking about a place to stay for the Derby, you can’t find a better place, or a hostess with more grace than Dana!

    I hope to return someday! Many regards to you, and good luck at the races this year!

  2. Hi Dana!! Well we are now over a week past from when I was at the Derby and I am still telling everyone all the wonderful stories about the Kentucky Derby and the people of Louisville. Even though Derby day was filled with rain we made the most of it and enjoyed every moment.

    The walk form your house to the track was VERY manageable and it was great recommendation that we swing by and pick up box lunches at Farm to Fork. Everyone was asking about “where we got our yummy lunches”. I cannot thank you again for all the wonderful information you supplied, had it not been for you I am not sure we would have had such a wonderful experience.
    The restaurants, the tips and the general information of the area was true to the details you supplied.

    So I part with these final words to anyone reading this on your blog, if you were looking for a cute bungalow while going to the Derby, this is the place you should pick. You will not regret it!! One day I will be back……!!!

    Cheers,

  4. Given the area of Louisville with its river accessibility, axial area and balmy climate, it has become a focal point for business and industry expansion.
