Stunning

Jerry and Christy, thank you for everything, we had such a wonderful stay here. The house is stunning!! We truly had the best "Kentucky" experience possible. and wouldn't have if we had stayed anywhere else. What a wonderful time of year to come with the house being decorated so beautifully for the holidays. We look forward to coming " home" every evening. We would love to come back one day.
