Pettit Place

Guest Rating:

Vacation rental house. Sleeps 12, 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms. Dogs allowed.

316 W 2nd St Lexington, KY 40507 United States

Welcome to Pettit Place, a southern contemporary custom home, built right in the center of downtown Lexington. Completed in 2005, this property is a 2-story, one of a kind home spanning nearly 4,500 square feet with an elegant downtown vibe that still exudes classic Lexingtonian style. Beautiful natural light accents the open floor plan that offers space for a large group to spread out and stay comfortably. The home has 10-20 ft ceilings throughout, 3 private porches, an outdoor water feature in the private courtyard, sky line views of downtown to the back and views of the historic Hunt-Morgan house and gardens out the front picture windows! It can sleep up to 12 and has an elevator for accessing the second floor. A private garage and secured outdoor driveway (enclosed inside electric gates) offer parking for 4 cars. The property was home to a former mayor of Lexington and was designed by his son, Van Meter Pettit. The Pettit family recently decided to open it to guests to share a bit of authentic Lexington with visitors to the city!

Bedroom Layout:
There is 1 master bedroom on the ground floor with a King size bed and en suite bathroom that has a soaking tub/shower combination. This bedroom has a TV and views out to the courtyard.
The second floor has an additional master bedroom with a King size bed, 2 en suite baths (one with a tub and one with a shower) and picture windows along the front of the house with a door to access the front porch/balcony. There is a study located outside this bedroom and another door for accessing the porch. There is a guest bedroom with a queen size bed on the second floor as well as the "loft" bedroom, which has 2 sets of twin over full bunk beds and a sleeper sofa (it is a huge room!). These two guest rooms share a bathroom with shower/tub combination that has jack and jill doors offering an en suite experience to the queen bedroom and hallway access for those staying in the loft bedroom. The queen bedroom has a private porch overlooking the courtyard. The loft bedroom has a TV.

    Patrick B from Mattaoiisett, MA recommends this vacation rental

    We visited for Parents Weekend at UK and the UK v South Carolina Football Game ! GoCats! We have two families about 10 people in total. Everything was wonderful ; Lisa was extremely helpful and provided recommendations for eating and things to do. The location is second to none. Easy to walk downtown and a short ride (also walkable) to campus. Highly recommend this location.

    • Manager Responded on 10/5/2018

      Thank you, Patrick! We're so glad that you took advantage of the excellent location and were able to explore Lexington by foot! Keep us in mind next time you visit the area, we would love the opportunity to host you again!

    Cynthia T from St Pete Beach, Fl recommends this vacation rental

    We attended a beautiful New Years Eve wedding and stayed at Pettit Place. This is the perfect place for a large family. My husband and I and our 3 grown children and their children stayed here and loved it! Large kitchen allowed multiple people to prepare food for adults or the children. Lots of room to move around and each family had room for privacy. Extremely clean and well maintained we have family in Lexington and will definitely do this again! It is a wonderful way to bond with your grown children and grandchildren and they get to know each other again!

    Pettit Place was the perfect house for a Christmas getaway for our family. There was plenty of room for our 8 family members and 2 dogs. The house is in a great location downtown, allowing us to walk to great dinner spots and several entertainment options.

    a guest from Louisville, KY recommends this vacation rental

    Our extended family stayed at Pettit Place for a UK Graduation in December 2017. You can really tell the difference between a house and an architect designed home. This home has every detail throughout. We had four families (12 adults total) and there was plenty of space, towels and bathrooms for all to share. I would definitely recommend Pettit Place to anyone visiting Lexington.

    My only concerns were the narrow garage doors, not quite large enough for a full size car or SUV. With no additional parking around the house (without hefty payments on UK game days) it made parking a challenge. But, you can fit four smaller/mid size cars in the available parking, so plan accordingly.

    Another concern is the lack of cooking utensils for a large group. There are plenty of place settings for the 12 of us. However, preparing food food for 12 in two eight- inch pans and no baking dishes was a challenge.

    Again, the home is fabulous and spacious. The setting can't be beat by any downtown venue. I have no regrets and I would definitely book it again.

    a guest from New York, NY recommends this vacation rental

    Pettit place is truly a unique and amazing property right in the heart of Downtown Lexington. The house was perfect for our group of 12 and we were all especially blown away by some of the house's subtle features (exposed brick, original window, vaulted ceilings etc). The property manager was very communicative throughout our stay and gave us great food recommendations as well. All in all, we had a fantastic stay.

    a guest from Jefferson City, MO recommends this vacation rental

    We were only in Lexington two nights (rented three but left early due to Hurricane Irma's wind and rain) but LOVED this property as well as its location. We had toddlers and grandparents and were able to take a short walk to most places we wanted to go. Lexington is a delightful town and this property was PERFECT for our needs. We can't wait to come back for a longer visit! One thing to note: I would call the management company rather than email them if you need anything. We weren't sure if we needed to strip the beds upon departure and didn't get an email response over the weekend. I'm sure calling would have been better though!

    We rented this home and one near to it for our business team, attending a conference just downtown at the Rupp Arena. It was perfect, large and open, great for group interactions. Lovely outdoor area even though in heart of downtown. Walking distance to everything.
