Description of the Louisville vacation condo rental
Stay at one of the most unique and breathtaking places in Louisville. Open the door to this 1,400 square foot penthouse loft, with 14 foot ceilings, and in front of you is an entire wall of windows overlooking downtown and the falls of the Ohio River. The windows are over 40 feet in length and 7 1/2+ feet in height. Every day I wake up deliriously happy because the first thing I see in the morning is this view, and I stay that way all day for the same reason. I would love for you to experience this during your time in Louisville!

A string of adjectives for you that describe my space. . . Sun-drenched, Modern, Urban and Industrial Chic. The open floor plan allows you to enjoy time together with your friends, and the distinct spaces created using groupings of furniture allow you to have more intimate gatherings when you choose. The exposed concrete floors give you a raw, industrial feel while the carefully chosen decor warms up the space for a truly comfortable stay in an edgy space.

The space is 1 of 3 penthouse riverview lofts in the historic Glassworks Building in downtown Louisville. Glassworks is a multi-use facility dedicated to the art of glass featuring 2 working glass studios, 2 glass galleries, a walk-in workshop and daily tours. That gives you a lot to do before you even step outside the building.

Plus, enjoy the convenience of secure parking with a key card access elevator. Should you need anything during your stay, there is 24-hour security at the lobby front desk.

Another nearly identical in floorplan and comparably decorated and furnished loft is available one floor below to accommodate up to 14 more people. (Check out 'My Other Listings' in the right-hand side bar of this listing for details on this space or contact me for the link to the other listing.) Have a large group? We've got you covered with 2 stunning spaces in the same building!

Staying here, you are in the Glassworks District, adjacent to Museum Row. Without leaving a 2-block radius you can:

--Take the elevator down to Jazzyblu for a cocktail and a spot of live music or, if it's the weekend, chill in their cozy lounge, Blu, with dance music;

--Watch glass blowing artisans working it on the ground level;

--Walk to the world-renowned 21C Museum Hotel which houses restaurant Proof on Main and the 21C contemporary art museum;

--Stroll just a fraction further to up-and-coming restaurant St Charles Exchange and choose a libation from their lengthy cocktail list that showcases turn of the century mixed drinks in a casually elegant space reminiscent of a 1900's hotel lobby bar;

--Meander down Museum Row which includes Frazier History Museum, Glassworks, Louisville Slugger Museum and Factory, Kentucky Science Center, Kentucky Museum of Art + Craft, 21c Museum Hotel, The Muhammad Ali Center and The Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts;

--or Jog to the Louisville Riverwalk for your morning run in Waterfront Park.

There is more, but I couldn't risk losing your interest by making this section even longer!

Venture a little further east (1.3 miles) on Market on the free downtown TARC trolley and you will find a plethora of amazing and unique restaurants. Louisville is a foodie town and this section, NuLu, is at the heart of the up-and-coming restaurant scene. Also, enjoy antique shops, art galleries and specialty stores.

Still with me? Let's go a little further down the road to The Highlands (about 3 miles to the southeast). Sometimes referred to as 'Restaurant Row,' the Highlands in Louisville is best known for its eclectic local shops, restaurants, bars and nightclubs. In fact, the three mile stretch of Bardstown Road and Baxter Avenue that intersects the Highlands has the highest density of bars and restaurants in Louisville.

I could keep going, but you are only staying for a couple of days, right?
