The space

Located in the hip Highlands neighborhood, this private luxury apartment offers a full kitchen and bath, vaulted ceilings, and master bedroom with queen size bed. Character, charm and convenience in Louisville, KY. Come and stay awhile.

The treetop apartment is filled with skylights and has its own rooftop deck. It has a staircase up to the apartment that is sturdy and quite lovely. It's an easy five-minute walk to dozens (really, we mean dozens) of coffee shops, restaurants, pubs, and art galleries. You're also close to Cherokee Park and on the edge of downtown Louisville. This home was built in the 1880s for a steamboat captain on the Ohio River. Heart of pine floors, exposed brick chimneys, air conditioning, full-size refrigerator, microwave, smoothtop electric range and fully equipped kitchen.

Separate living room features full-size sofa, books and board games, 40-inch flatscreen TV with Blu Ray player, cable TV, Amazon TV, Netflix and other streaming channels for all your favorite movies and shows.

Two traditional beds, one pillow-top queen and one double. Additional guests sleep on foldout futon.

Wake up in the morning, relax on your treetop deck, then walk to breakfast at a local restaurant or coffee shop (see our guide book for details). Return in the evening for drinks and dinner, and shopping at art galleries and boutiques. The Original Highlands neighborhood is a mecca for eclectic and independent local culture. This apartment is just two blocks from the Baxter Avenue and Bardstown Road corridors, which include Molly Malone's, O'Shea's, Wick's Pizza, Jack Fry's, Quill's Coffee, Holy Grale, Heine Bros Coffee, and much more.
We love hosting guests in Louisville, whether it's one day, a week, or longer.

Check out our Guidebook for our suggestions on local (and mostly walkable) drinks and eats.

Our neighborhood is full of charm and character. Expect big Victorian style houses, big trees and many areas to get pleasantly lost. The space is located on the TOP floor of our home. So, there are stairs to climb to get there. We are always happy to help carry luggage if we are home. Additionally, there are some steep angles in the apartment but we think it adds to the charm. And if you don't want charm its probably better to stay in a hotel, right?

Make sure to read the house info that comes after you book. It has all the info you need.

Get around on foot, ride the public bus called TARC with several stops close to the house, take a cab or use Uber. All parking in this area of the city is on the street but free. It is safe and usually easy to find a spot.

Guest access

Check-in and Check-out is 100 percent self-serve, day or night. Jen will provide a code for the lock box on the door to the third-floor deck.

This is a comfortable, funky little apartment in a great location. So many cool things within walking distance, and the neighborhood is cute and very walkable. Jen & Alex are great communicators and wonderful hosts.

We loved Jen & Alex's place. Great location walking distance to bars and restaurants. It was a clean place and we couldn't have asked for a better experience!

I picked this area due to its charm and proximity to some of my favorite restaurants and night life. It was walking distance to many great restaurants and I really love the older homes in this area. The apartment was very clean and had everything to make my stay enjoyable. The bed was very comfortable and the kitchen was quite spacious. I was in town on business for a few nights and would recommend this over the hotels where I normally stay.

Our stay at Jen and Alex's place was great! The apartment is very cute and has everything one (or more) might need. The location is perfect as it's only a few minutes walking distance from the Highlands attractions. We did not have a chance to talk to hosts much as everyone was provided and we were more than happy with the state of things there. However, we ran into Jen once and she was extremely nice. We would definitely recommend this place!

We are happy to have the chance to host folks in our home! We have lived in the Highlands neighborhood of Louisville since 2003. We love sharing the River City with visitors. We are happy to give advice about where to eat, drink, and play (climb, bike, run, camp, yoga) in Kentucky and Southern Indiana.
