Big News: The Old Friends Vacation Cottage Opens March 25! 

This tastefully decorated colonial is the perfect home base for exploring Lexington and surrounding area attractions, from shopping and dining to a day at Keeneland or a visit to the Kentucky Horse Park.  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. 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 pensioned racing champions. and your staff will help benefit the horses.

Amenities include four bedrooms, three full baths, a fully equipped kitchen, plus a spacious living room and dining area.  It is suitable for up to eight people.
