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 immersed in Louisville’s food and drinks scene. 1890 House is a rambling Victorian that sleeps eight on two floors, and Vertigo is a cool third floor flat that sleeps two. If your group is really big, take the whole shebang!

​Whichever you stay in you’ll have a full kitchen in a space that’s comfy and homey — after all this is our home — 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’ve also covered the Louisville culinary scene with a column in the Courier Journal since 2010. I literally write 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.

​Thinking about launching your own Airbnb? I can help with that!
