Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
If you have submitted a review for a holiday rental property, we may also ask that you provide us with proof of your stay to ensure that your review is attached to the correct rental property.
Holiday rental reviews collected via the VRBO website (formerly Homeaway) and syndicated to the Tripadvisor website are not currently subject to Tripadvisor’s standard moderation processes.
Learn more about our review moderation.

The accommodations were over the top, got a visit from the judge, did the Ark Encounter and Museum, enjoyed the small town hospitality and was awesome knowing we had a safe place to lay our heads down every night. Have already recommended to friends and family to stay when in town.

House was renovated and everything is "new", but not necessarily as nice as it looked in the pictures. The floor is like walking across the ocean floor, up/down/up/down. There was no coffee pot when we arrived, we had to go buy our own and request two different times to get a refund on the purchase price.

Clean and fine. However, deck was under construction and not available Friday night. When got back Saturday, still was finished and all the workers were there having an end of day party/bonfire. We wanted to be out there but was unavailable until late. Not a big deal but should get a reduced price. Not what was promised by the pictures. Limited silverware. If holds 12, need more than almost 12 of everything. Good part was that it was clean!

Our extended family really enjoyed our stay. Don't let the outside of the building fool you; there's lots of space inside with 4 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms. The big family room and comfy sectional were great for watching a movie together and the large dining table was just perfect for games. If you are planning to visit the Ark Encounter (or need an idea for an activity), we highly recommend that too; very close. We didn't get to explore the little town, but loved the burgers and fries from Hansie Flip Burgers. The KY Horse Farm down toward Lexington is also worth the drive. Owner/management company were always quick to answer any questions beforehand and during our stay.

We were very pleased with the house - plenty of room for our entire crew. Spent two nights while visiting the Ark Encounter ( 5 minutes away) Kitchen was well stocked. Communication with the manager was great. The only things I’d point out is that on the listing it shows 2 bedrooms as having a twin/single and a queen bed - these are not actual beds - they are cots - only one had a frame to put the mattress on. It worked fine for us though - one was used by a toddler on the floor and the other by a small teenager. The only other thing was that it’s about a 10 minute drive to any restaurants ( which other than fast food - were very limited- and several were closed on Sunday and Monday) We did eat dinner ( ordered online/to go) at Beans cafe and Bakery. Everything we ordered was very good and we also bought a loaf of their sourdough. Coffees and doughnuts looked like they would be yummy too, but we ate our breakfast at the house. All that said - we would stay there again and would definitely recommend it. Thank you for a very enjoyable and relaxing visit.

It worked out perfect for our large group. Ages 4-75. Nice room arrangements for grouping and for privacy. Well functioning kitchen. TV in every room but I don't think we ever had one on. We did the ark and Creation museum, visited, played games. A wonderful time all around.

I had a great stay at this wonderful property. The movie room had incredible surroundsound and large couches for my entire family. It had all of the amenities plus a few extras that made this day really nice. We would definitely stay there again and recommend it highly.

This was an office building that was converted into housing units. The lower level was spacious and great for large groups. The upper unit might be rentable but I'm not sure. The rental sits right on the edge of town within walking distance to restaurants.

Beautiful and spacious home with an inviting layout. Easy access to the highway. . Very close to Ark Encounter. Laid back and friendly Main Street a short stroll down the hill. Very relaxing trip that slowed down time.
