The SpaceMiss Mable enjoys sharing her home with those who are interested in antiques and historic houses. The house is a 1906 Colonial Revival in Georgetown, Kentucky. The small town has Southern charm, such as friendly folks, good food and drink, a variety of shops, and many Victorian mansions up on Main Street, a block away. While renting Miss Mable's Bluegrass Home you will have a chance to relax and see the sights of the beautiful Bluegrass region of Kentucky. You can cook a meal in, make arrangements for someone to come in to prepare food and serve, or dine in an assortment of area restaurants. It is very interesting to tour the distilleries making famous Kentucky bourbon. The Kentucky Horse Park is only six miles away and presents numerous aspects of horses, such as history, art, and displays. It is difficult to leave a driving tour of the horse farms. Some people enjoy taking a day tour (two hours away) of the Appalachian mountains and to hike. Miss Mable's Bluegrass home was completely refurnished, 2004-2005. The original wood and new wallpaper are extremely impressive. The majority of the furnishings are family heirlooms. (Thus, a request is that only youth 16 years old and older come as guests.) There are two bedrooms with double beds and one bedroom with a daybed (twin bed). The chimneys are not usable due to age. Rental of the house can be arranged for the complete house or any part of the rooms at a time. The Victorian bathroom is for escaping with pure enjoyment and relaxatio(URL HIDDEN) Guest AccessThere are several highlights for the typical visitor of the Bluegrass region of Central Kentucky. Things concerning horses are consistent around the year; driving around to see horse farms and sometimes able to visit an "active working" farm. Then there are the big, exciting events, such as Horse shows and special horse races - Keeneland Race Track, Rolex Horse Show, KY Debry at Churchill Downs, and the Breeder's Cup (fall 2005). Most bourbon distilleries have tours through out the day - Marker's Mark, Wild Turkey, Buffalo Trace, and Jim Beam. Interaction with GuestsMy basic concept is that my guests are on a special vacation/trip and it is their time. However, I am always willing to visit, make suggestions, and/or drive them around or make arrangement for professional companies. If they want to see an additional area of KY, arrangements can be made for them to visit eastern KY (Appalachia) for a long day (about two hours away). This would be for sightseeing, visiting several popular sights, or to go hiking. The NeighborhoodMiss Mable's Bluegrass Home is in the middle of the historic area of Georgetown, when it was planned in the late 1800s. All of the houses on South Hamilton are historic homes that were probably built soon after the birth of small town. Getting AroundTypical of many small towns, a public transit mode of transportation is not available. Most often visitors that fly into the area utilize car rentals. The usual airports to be used is the Lexington (the closest), Louisville (about one hour drive on I64 East), and Cincinnati (about 45 - 60 minutes.)
Other Things to NoteIf visitors have the time and/or what a variety of activities, there is a wide assortment of things to see and do. There are many historical sites and homes available for touring. In the Spring and Fall many small towns and communities have festivals.
