A comfortable (private entrance) bedroom with queen bed, mini-fridge and full bathroom. Located in a safe, quiet neighborhood in South Lexington. Restaurants, shopping, pharmacies etc. within 1 mile in every direction. A cozy, clean place to stay if you are passing through, or visiting, without paying hotel prices.
Safe..quiet---tv---mini fridge(usually has complimentary drinks and sometimes snacks) --Coffee, tea and hot chocolate packets....and an electric kettle that brings water to a boil in seconds. Two large closets and a few shelves (for clothes). 2 USB ports for charging devices. The house was built in the late 1990's. Great neighborhood for walking or jogging. ----Close to most everything in Lexington. Well,..virtually no area in Lexington is THAT far away from any other part of the city. Nicholasville Rd. has the most traffic lights and is the busiest road. It is the closest way to downtown but around 4:30 to 6:30 pm it may be faster to take Tates Creek Rd., Clays Mill Rd or even Harrodsburg Rd.(all via Man O War). But traffic is never too bad, compared to BIG cities. Though traffic on Nicholasville Rd. can be frustrating, especially on the weekend.----I mean, if you are going some place on the furthest part of the North end, you can usually get there within 25 minutes(depending on the time of day). Primarily because New Circle Rd circles around the whole city and Man O' War Blvd circles around half of Lexington. So, if the primary roads are busy, you can get on New Circle or Man O War and avoid most of the traffic lights and congestion of going straight through busy areas like: downtown, the UK campus, hospitals and busy business centers.---- My place is across the street(walking distance ---3/4 of a mile approx.) from "The Summit". The Summit is a nice, new boutique style, "upscale" shopping center [J.Alexander's, Ted's Montana Grill, Blaze pizza, Shake Shack, Starbucks, World of Beer, Atomic Ramen, Core Eatery, Athenian Greek food, a huge Whole Foods, Pottery Barn, Brooks Bros. dress shops, gift shops, pubs etc. etc.) It is an interesting, new style of shopping and eating. There are townhouses above many of the stores. It has been designed to feel like a little village. I think it's neat(though, honestly, mostly over priced) and worth visiting, if you have the time. If walking there, you do have to cross Man O' War Blvd, which is a 4 lane road, but it is really easy and safe if you cross at the traffic light. ----Downtown, UK campus, the airport are all about 5 to 6 miles away. Keeneland racetrack is just past the airport, so it's about 6.5 miles away. Fayette mall(largest in the State) is 1.5 miles away. The Kentucky Horse Park is an attraction that is probably the furthest away from me. It is 18 miles away (31 minutes).
Private bathroom and bedroom.---You have your own
private entrance to the guest room and bath, for complete privacy (yours and mine). There is a number coded entry(no key needed). You will be given the code when you book. I will respect your privacy and not go into the guest area during your stay without your permission,..or if there is an emergency sort of situation.---Likewise, the rest of the house is not accessible to guests.---Parking on the street. The best place is on Bradford colony Rd. on the left side --as you enter. Bradford Colony is the road that leads to Harwick Circle.

I'm friendly and open to questions and conversation but,generally, I mind my own business and I respect my guest's privacy. However, if you have ANY questions or concerns, feel free to let me know. You can call/text me, or just knock on the side door if I am home. I will do my best to answer any and all questions, and help you out any way I can. ----We may or may not meet each other in person during your stay since you have your own entrance, and because of our different schedules. ----I want you to feel like you have complete privacy during your stay, as well as having the freedom to come and go without explanation or interruption. ---***Some AirBnB hosts offer the traditional bed and breakfast experience. They open up their entire home and they provide, and share, meals with their guests. And this is what some AirBnB travelers are seeking. This is great!!--***But, I am catering to the other kind of Air BnB traveler. The people who are simply looking for a nice, clean, laid back, less expensive alternative to traditional hotels. You want privacy and as much autonomy as possible. You aren't necessarily looking to meet new people via Air BnB. Rather,..you are looking for a somewhat unique and private place to stay "on the cheap" when you travel. This is what I am looking for when I travel.-----So, as a host, this is what I provide.---Please don't mistake my staying out of your way for rudeness. It is, actually, my way of showing respect for your privacy.
The rest of the inside of my house is off limits and not accessible. The guest door (your door) is in the front of my house and has a coded entry. The "front" door (my door) is at the side of the house. ----My schedule varies quite a bit. I may be gone for a few days or I may be home all day for a couple of days straight. Regardless,....if you have any concerns or questions, just text/call me and I will help you out via phone or in person. I can pretty much always be there within an hour or so, or at the very least, have a friend or family member help you out in an emergency type situation. But, hopefully, that will never happen---knock on wood! ----My two dogs are sometimes at this house. They do not have access to the guest area.
No parties. No strangers, or extra guests that I don't know about, in the room. Let me know, in advance, how many people are staying. Obey the law. Do not re-arrange the furniture or take down framed art or instructional signs. You are welcome to a brochure, a magazine and a drink or two from the mini fridge,... but PLEASE don't take "stuff"(specifically towels, sheets, pillows, books, hair dryer, shampoo, toilet paper...everything else). This is my home, not a hotel, and I can't afford to replace these things every week. I didn't think that I would have to put that down as a rule, and it isn't needed for 99% of people, but all of the above things have been taken recently.---Don't leave a mess or cause damage. You are liable for any damage that you cause. Clean up after yourself. Don't be too loud. No smoking inside the house. Don't keep the doors open. Be nice. Treat my house like it is your own. I am not liable for any accidental injury or illness that occurs while staying on my property. Access to the rest of my house is off limits. Contact me if you have any questions, concerns, complaints etc. ....during your stay. I will do all that I can, within reason, to address your queries. ---If you aren't sure about what is and isn't allowed, just ask. Mostly, use common sense. Thanks for staying and thanks for your kindness and consideration!
I'm a laid back guy. Lexington, Ky is home. Just looking to make a little extra dinero from the section of my house that I don't use.
