The space

The Victorian mansion was built in 1882. Throughout the years it has been owned and modified by several people. We have taken efforts to restore this house to its original beauty by working with the Louisville Preservation Society. While restoring the house, we stripped the walls down to the plaster and found 2 locations that were signed by the paper hangar in September 1905. Those signatures were preserved under a protective glass. This house has so much character with its 12 foot ceilings, ornate trim and large rooms. In the past several years, the Thompson Street Opera group has reserved the house for 2 months at a time because it was a great place for them to live and rehearse.

Guest access

The entire house is over 4500 square feet, but has been divided into 2 distinct dwellings. The side of the house where you will stay is the front side where the original family would have entertained guests. The back side of the house was mostly reserved for the staff.

Interaction with guests

We live about 20 minutes away from the house and can be called upon if needed.

Troy and Michelle's place is quite larger in person than the photos admit, and very cozy given that. While our hosts are still in the process of renovating this beautiful building, the sleeping quarters and bathrooms are all in order and clean and comfy. We found the wifi was a bit temperamental with multiple (~6+) devices but speeds were fast; we had no issues streaming shows to watch. We most of all appreciated how clearly Troy and Michelle explained the security and lock systems so we could properly use them without setting off alarms, and also how they spent the time to walk through the entire house with us. I would definitely recommend this location, we were all very pleased.

Troy is an excellent host and made us welcome from the get-go. He was very communicative and greeted my wife and me with a smile and ready information upon our arrival. His home is impressive and is located in an urban setting only a short drive from downtown, U of L, parks, etc. This convenience allowed us to go back and forth between the house and our activities without much hassle. Troy and his wife have worked hard to restore the old house and it shows, and the home's location and character, combined with our host's easygoing style, made for a great weekend.

My wife and I have restored an old Victorian mansion in downtown Louisville. The house was built in 1882 and we have performed almost all the restoration ourselves. We have traveled extensively in South America, Europe, Scandinavia and the Netherlands so we know what it is like to be in new places. Our goal is to make your stay in the Louisville area great. The house is located at 2133 W Chestnut St Louisville, KY 40211.
