About this listing

Less than a mile from the entrance to Churchill downs! Quiet and within easy walking distance of the track - and the chance to stay in a quaint adorable tiny home with full amenities!
Featured in Louisville Magazine! (URL HIDDEN)
*The house is in a residential neighborhood, behind another house which we'll stay in when we have guests.

The space

This house is a tiny house, (yes, like the ones on HGTV but we like to think it's even cooler!). There is a bed in the floor, room for an entire upstairs bedroom area where you can stand completely upright, a full bathroom, a full sized kitchen, and a 6' wide bar window that completely opens onto an outdoor deck for entertaining! We love our cozy little home and love to share it with people!

Guest access

You'll have full access to the house! There is a bed that slides out from under the kitchen floor and we have induction burners that plug in if you want to do stovetop cooking, but other than that everything is pretty much like a full sized house! You are free to use the refrigerator, soaps, towels, tv, fireplace, kitchen cooking & appliances, etc. - make our place your own (within reason :p).

Interaction with guests

We will either be staying with a friend a block away or in the house on the front of the lot, so we'll be around if needed at all! We're also available to let you in if you want and show you the ropes - we love meeting new people but also are totally cool letting you in and leaving you alone - completely up to you!

Other things to note

You will have someone in the house at the front of the lot! The tiny house is completely private but you may see other people walking in and out - don't worry, no one bites :).

The house gets pretty cool with three AC units (especially the upstairs), but if it's a really hot day (90+ degrees or so) it keeps it bearable, but not ice cube. So be aware of the weather if you're an ice cube person!

The same is true in very cold winter - we have four heaters, but if it's below freezing it can get cold inside. If you're cold, make sure you turn on all four heaters and that helps a lot! If you have questions about where they are/how to use them just ask :).

Also note: you will be walking back the driveway of the main house to find the tiny house. Once at the back of the driveway you'll see the path leading back!

We love our little home - please treat it nicely! Drinking is fine, smoking is not, drugs are not (probably goes unsaid but... have to be clear). You can smoke outside on the deck, but make sure the doors and windows are closed (we're both super sensitive to smoke so having the smell in the house would stink both literally and figuratively! :p)

Great spot for derby races. Also a good hub to start your Kentucky bourbon trail. It was a very thought out Tiny House made me realize how little you need if your things have a purpose.

This tiny house is so cute! Extremely clean and we'll taken care of. The only complaint I have is that it was hot when I visited and the a.c. units couldn't keep it very cool during the day. Night time was better, but I still slept on the couch because it was warmer upstairs. I would love to go back when I can go to a race at Churchill Downs since it is so close!

The tiny house was beautiful and comfortable, with lots of space and a separate and private loft to sleep in. The finishes in the home made it feel like a treat-yourself-for-the-weekend kind of getaway, and they even left a basket of "treats" for guests to help themselves to. Check-in/check-out were simple and they were fast to respond to any communication. The only issue we ran into were several leaks in the home during a storm with heavy rain. Overall, this was a wonderful place to stay.

We are relative newlyweds and have two little dogs named Toby & Milo who are the loves of our lives! We love traveling whenever we get a chance - be it a 3 week backpacking trip to Europe or a quick weekend exploring anywhere within driving distance. We are both "transplants" to Louisville and we LOVE it here, we met in college here and decided to stay :). We built our own little tiny house here in Louisville and it's our own perfect little place with everything we need!
