Be it for just a night or a whole summer, these rental accommodations will make your stay memorable. Don’t forget to check out our list of the best Airbnb vacation rentals in Lexington, KY, on a budget.
The studio apartment has a full functioning kitchen, closet, laundry facility, TV with a Netflix subscription, and a bed/sitting room. The best part is that the apartment has a private entrance, so you can come and go as you please without worrying about disturbing the host.
The apartment is located in the heart of Lexington’s historic district. The dining table is an antique game table which you can also use as a work table. The entrance to the apartment is from an antique wooden staircase that was built in the original house in 1900. The guests have access to the whole apartment. You can also wander in the backyard where there is a kitchen garden with chickens! Miki will provide you with fresh eggs or seasonal vegetables if you ask her.
