Owner Supplied Testimonials

We had a wonderful night at the GuestHouse on Story. We felt very at home from the moment we arrived and enjoyed particularly playing records in our room! The details are all perfect. Worth every penny just for the room but Kate and Kim are lovely, welcoming people and the house is very special. Must stay.-Brandon Seckler

This place was amazing! We were in Louisville to celebrate a bachelorette party, and this home could not have been more perfect. Kim and her sister welcomed us with champagne and bourbon balls, were very accommodating in working with us on the booking and the check in/out. They were easy to reach, responded quickly, and absolutely fabulous hosts. The house was absolutely perfect. Everything was impeccably decorated and clean, and each room had character all of its own. There were plenty of large common gathering areas, and great outdoor space as well! We loved the record players in each room as a fun added touch! There was plenty of parking, which was awesome, as we had several cars. You can tell this Butchertown neighborhood is growing, and we loved shopping at the cool shop on the corner - Butchertown Market. The house is walking distance to some places, and a quick car ride to downtown and Bardstown Road. This was awesome, as location was really important to our group. We could not have been happier with this beautiful home, and will absolutely reach out to the Guesthouse on Story for any future trips to Louisville!
-Jessica Siegel

The Guesthouse was unbelievable. We rented the whole house for a bachelor party and we ended up truly loving the place. It was just a great big beautiful house. The best thing for a party of ten - it was incredibly open, yet intimate. Every young man had his own bedroom. Plus the dining room, reading room and great balcony on the second floor were used often. The owners have a wonder sense of music as well; the Guesthouse was loaded with dozens of rock n' roll and jazz records and a vintage turntable to play them on. Many album covers and posters decorated the walls, most with autographs from the artists. As the father of the groom, I had to push the young men out the next morning as they wanted to stay a couple of additional nights. It was truly a great beginning to my son's bachelor party. (Kim - feel free to edit to your liking. Every kid came up to me and said I love this place!) - Kent Kauffman

Kim was very accomodating to us, responding quickly to all of our messages and allowing us to leave our bags at the place early, and check out late! We appreciated her kindness and flexibility, but what we loved most was the property! It was very cozy and more than big enough for our group of 13 people. The pictures don't do it justice!
