Swanky! Stunning! Spectacular!

You'll be in a top-floor loft overlooking downtown Shelbyville and perfectly situated in the heart of the Bourbon Trail! Incredible place to stay for Derby, Keeneland, PGA or local weddings and events---if you can pry yourself away from here!

We specialize in making your stay an over-the-top experience and are happy to arrange chauffeured transportation, private chef accommodations, and dinner reservations.

The space
Bond Loft


This swanky loft has so many WOW factors your eyes will be dancing! Enter the setting through the vintage revolving door or conveniently on the elevator and arrive on the scene of this character-packed accommodation. The owners have transformed this late 1800s space from what was once a clothing factory into what looks like a scene from a James Bond movie. You’ll enjoy features from its former glory such as original trusses, exposed brick and hardwood floors. And the updated details will blow your mind.
