About this listing

Fun mid century modern space with period furniture blocks from Main Street (downtown area) and within minutes by way of walking to Local's restaurant, Mirror Twin Brewery, Cosmic Charlie's (night club and music venue), and Break Out Games!

The space

Offered for your rental retreat is small, yet spacious, mid century modern house originally built as a model home for the once local J.T. Perry Lumber Company during the 1950's. Although only 725 sq. feet, the open floor plan and vaulted ceilings create a roomy atmosphere you will enjoy. As well, the many windows flood the home with plenty of natural light during the day.

The home has two bedrooms with a queen bed in each room. There is one bathroom with most necessary amenities provided: soap, shampoo, linens, toilet paper.

The kitchen has a stove, refrigerator with ice maker, microwave, dishwasher, blender, and coffee maker and is equipped with the basics needed to cook a meal: pots, pans, utensils, plates, glasses, bowls.

There is a washer / Dryer on site. There is off-street parking as well.

The home has been tastefully decorated with period furniture and accents and has one television with local channels and access to Netflix via a Roku TV. The home has wireless internet.

The backyard is private and, although currently under a spring clean up, will feature a fire pit, and four chairs to sit comfortably and enjoy the fire.

The home is conveniently located just blocks from Main Street and is only a block away from Local's restaurant, Cosmic Charlie's (a nighttime music venue and bar), Mirror Twin Brewery, and Break Out Games. As Well Blue Door Smokehouse (the best BBQ in town) is directly across the street from the house so you won't go hungry here.

Super cute, clean, and comfortable little house, with great 50s vintage aesthetics! Close to shopping and restaurants. House is stocked with essentials in kitchen and bath- like coffee, olive oil, shampoo, etc. Love ❤️ this place!!

Aurora House was a wonderful place to stay. My son and I were looking for a place we could stay while I was visiting my daughter, who lives in Lexington. This was walking distance to her place, and is also walking distance to nice restaurants, a brew pub and various other attractions. It's a little bit of a longer walk if you want to go all the way downtown, but it's certainly doable. The neighborhood is charming and has a lot of character. The house and furniture have a nice 1950's vibe to them, which is very cool. Jill keeps the place spotlessly clean and provides all the amenities, including washer/dryer, cooking utensils, ironing board, and anything else you might need. She also provided shampoo, conditioner and soap, which I appreciated. Although we didn't get a chance to use them, she also has a fire pit and tiki torches in the backyard -- maybe I can try those out the next time I'm in Lexington visiting my daughter. The house is much larger on the inside than it appears from the outside, with a big kitchen and dining area, a sitting room with television (which offers Netflix and other channels in addition to local channels). The two bedrooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable and king-sized. Communication with Jill was great and check-in and -out was super easy. In short, Jill was a wonderful hostess and I would highly recommend Aurora House for your next trip to Lexington.

We loved our stay at Jill's aribnb. The house is adorable and well appointed. There were all those little amenities that make a stay so easy and comfortable. The kitchen and bathroom were well equiped. The beds, linens, and towels were all great. We were delighted by the adorable 50s decor. I would definitely recommend and stay here again.

Jill User ProfileJill is a superhost.

My name is Jill. I love chickens, ducks, geese and guineas, traveling with my husband, junking, going to auctions, and reading non-fiction. I enjoy watching several television series, including American Horror Story, The Walking Dead, Orange is the New Black, and old Seinfeld re-runs. Fall is my favorite time of year...especially in Kentucky!

I'm an excellent guest in your home; very respectful of your belongings, tidy, and gracious for your hospitality. I strive to be the same as a hostess! I want your stay to be comfortable, private, and fun!
