The Eighth Pole is a southern colonial estate home tucked into the rolling countryside along the northwest side of the prestigious Keeneland Race Track. The property has been operated for many years as a 6-suite bed and breakfast and is now, for the very first time, being offered as a whole-home luxury vacation rental! The estate went through a total renovation when purchased by the current owners in 2014. It is designer decorated in an equestrian theme with barn-wood beams, plank floors and tufted leather furniture. It has six en-suite bedrooms complete with high-end linens and beautiful bathrooms. The main floor has a large living room, dining room and kitchen. The basement has an additional spacious TV room and a "sports bar" with billiards. At the back of the house is a brick patio with built in grill and outdoor furniture for enjoying the views out to rolling green hills dotted with grazing horses. The barns on property currently house thoroughbreds and if you are lucky during you stay, there’s a chance you will get to see a foal! This property has a caretaker that lives in a cottage on the back of the property - mainly to keep watch on the horses but is also available should you need anything during your stay. There is staff available for meals and daily housekeeping should you desire these add-on services. The Eighth Pole is the perfect Bluegrass setting for family reunions, milestone birthdays, an intimate wedding, a Bourbon trail tour, and of course any events at the Kentucky Horse Park! The location is ideal offering the seclusion of country living just 5 minutes from Bluegrass Airport and 15 minutes to the heart of downtown Lexington. Enjoy the privacy of a single family home combined with the amenities and service of a fine hotel - truly a dream setup for a stay in the Bluegrass area!
