Homey, hidden gem within trotting distance of world-famous Churchill Downs! Centrally located with easy access to interstates, downtown, old Louisville & the Highlands. Just up the street from Kentucky Exposition Center, UofL & Papa John's Cardinal Stadium. Cozy, with plenty of room to move! Open floor plan with kitchen & laundry.
1950's charm in a cozy duplex that's centrally located in Louisville. Completely private apartment with front or side door access. Almost IN the parking lot of Churchill Downs!
One bedroom has a queen size bed with a full size closet. The second bedroom has a full size bed with a small closet.
The kitchen and living room are all one room divided by an island and Danish modern shelf partition. The kitchen is fully equipped with a fridge, range and even a fully working antique RadarRange microwave!
The 50's pink-tiled bathroom is full size (but note that the doorway is a bit narrow.)
In the spacious basement there is a large capacity washer with a regular size dryer.
There is a weight bench and exercise equipment available in the basement as well.
It is a full size, 2 bedroom apartment with a large basement so events with small gatherings would work. I could help you with extra seating if needed, and there is plenty of parking. The kitchen island is nice if you have food set out buffet-style. (Just be mindful that only 4 sleeping guests are allowed to stay overnight.)
I do have cats next door but they have no access to the other side. They are not even allowed in the basement. No need to worry if you have allergies!
The apartment is set-up with free wifi and there is a smart TV in the living room.
You may use the entrance on Bohannon, but you'll find there is much more available parking on the Thornberry Ave side facing the church. Just be sure to leave a little extra room for your passengers next to the hill. Either entrance is accessible with the same key.
The kitchen is fully equipped and stocked with some yummy breakfast foods. Help yourself!
There are extra pillows, blankets and towels in the closets. Extra shampoo, conditioner, soap, lotion, toothpaste and the like are available in the bathroom closet.
Interaction with guests
Owner lives in apartment right next door if you need anything!
I'll be happy to meet you personally to show you in, or if you prefer, just let yourself in and make yourself at home!
Other things to note
It is an older home so it's got plenty of character and creaks in the floors! But it is comfortable and spacious enough to stretch out and take a load off your feet.
Be mindful that there are steps to both entrances if you have difficulty with stairs.
The clearance width into the bathroom is also a bit narrow.
A special note for Kentucky Derby guests! This property is very, very close to Churchill Downs and for the weekend of Derby there is no parking allowed on the street. For those days only with a paid reservation, you may park your car in the yard (with our help if you like, as it is on a slight incline). Also be mindful that traffic is horrendous within a 25 mile radius of the track on Thursday, Friday & of course, Saturday! If you're one of those brave and patient souls that wants to drive, don't forget to fill up the gas tank! If you're just coming to attend the Derby and/or Oaks and stay near home, you'll be set. That's my recommendation! It is only a short walk to Churchill Downs but so worth it!! You'll wonder how you lucked into to such an awesome spot!
Happy trails, everyone!! Be safe, be happy!
The wordy stuff:
It is always preferred that only those actually staying book the reservation. Third party bookings are accepted only if the owner is alerted to this arrangement and agrees.
If you need to stay longer than your reservation, just let us know to make sure it won't conflict with other bookings and will allow adequate time for clean up.
Please, no wild, drunken parties! We do live here!
Be nice to our little house. Spills and mishaps are understandable but wanton destruction of property is unacceptable!
Please only flush toilet paper or tissue in the toilet. Do not flush paper towels, wipes or sanitary products. Please do not pour oils or food waste into the kitchen sink.
Be careful and use common sense when using the exercise equipment. Please do not drop weights on floor.
Smoking is not allowed in the building.
Last but not least, the most important house rule is to have a great stay and enjoy your visit!! This is a must. Chill out and please make yourself at home. : ) Smile.
Thank you so much and have a great day!

Hello, travelers! Welcome to Bohannon at Thornberry in little Lucky Horseshoe neighborhood!
I'm your host, BC. I am an artist and an animal lover, and your quiet neighbor next door! I'm a native of Louisville and a 25 year resident of the Highlands area, although I'm a recent transplant to the Churchill Downs area. I look forward to the crazy adventure that is the Kentucky Derby!
I recently took over this listing from my awesome brother, Justin. I've had the pleasure of meeting so many wonderful people through his hosting and I'm tickled pink to carry on the tradition and host even more of you wonderful people!
If there's anything I can do to make your visit more comfortable, please let me know.
Have a wonderful stay!
