Cozy Vacation Home
Old Friends Thoroughbred Farm in Georgetown KY

Only a short drive from I-75/I-64 exits 113 or 120, and less than 25 minutes from Keeneland and the Bluegrass Airport, Old Friends’s newly available guest house is nestled in a rustic country setting in the heart of Bluegrass Country. 

This tastefully decorated colonial is the perfect home base for exploring Lexington and surrounding area attractions, from shopping and dining to a day at the races or a visit to the Kentucky Horse Park or other famous Thoroughbred farms.  It’s also a perfect respite for quiet relaxation.

The two-story house sits on five private acres on the perimeter of Old Friends Farm, which is home to over 100 retired Thoroughbreds. While your evenings can be spent in the cozy Silver Charm suite--a room celebrating just one of our retired Kentucky Derby winners--your day can include a tour around the farm to meet our other pensioned racing champions.

 The Old Friends house is very much a farm house. Sitting on the front porch you may hear horses snorting, cows mooing or the caretaker’s dogs playing or barking (our farm caretakers live in the bottom half of the house so there is always someone available to help you.)

But you will also find all of the amenities of home. The house features four bedrooms, each with plenty of closet space. There are three full baths, a fully-equipped kitchen, and a spacious dining and living area. There is a lovely wrap-around porch and back deck offering scenic farm views. Included also is a children’s playground and a laundry room with washer & dryer.
