Stay with a Louisville writer

Stay at a food/travel/bourbon writer’s house in Louisville

Make the most of your trip to bourbon country; stay at the home of a local writer and travel show host immersed in Louisville’s food and drinks scene.

Vertigo Louisville is a cool third floor flat in the main house that USA Today called one of America’s Coolest Airbnbs, and Little Carriage House on the Alley is a bohemian studio-style apartment over the old stable (now our garage). They were featured on our House Tour and Before & After on design site Apartment Therapy.

​Whichever you stay in you’ll have a full kitchen in a space that’s comfy and stylish, and full of unique touches inspired by (and brought home from) our world travels.

​Who’s your host? I’ve written about Louisville for national outlets like the LA Times, Food Network and Delta Sky magazines, CNN Travel, NBC News, the London Telegraph,, Food Republic, and lots more. I hosted United Airlines’ travel show Three Perfect Days Louisville, and I’ve covered the Louisville culinary scene with a column in the Courier Journal since 2010. I literally wrote the visitor’s guide (a big chunk of it anyway). I’m a Kentucky Colonel and a certified bourbon steward with the Stave and Thief Society. I’m also one of the longest tenured superhosts in Airbnb (that’s a lot of five star reviews!).

So basically if you want to know where to go, what to eat, and what to drink in Derby City, I’m your person. Stay here and consider me your connection to the coolest places in town.


And hey, if you’re coming to Louisville and miss your dog, you can hang out with mine! Join us on a walking tour of Old Louisville starring Cassius Thunderpaws. (As seen in Style Blueprint Nashville!)
