IMPORTANT: THE ARRIVAL TIME YOU PROVIDE US ON THE NEXT PAGE IS VERY IMPORTANT TO US AND WE CONSIDER IT AN APPOINTMENT. Once you have provided us your arrival time, please try to keep it (Louisville is on Eastern Standard Time). If you need to change your arrival time, please notify us at least 24 hours prior to your scheduled check-in. If you get delayed on the road, please notify us as soon as you are able to. Please give us as much notice as possible as it is quite likely that we may have made other commitments that would prevent us from being available to check you in. Because we are a small business run by the owners, we do not have staff available to assist you with check-ins during our absence. We want to make sure we are here to welcome you to our home when you ring the doorbell.
PARKING: Parking in front of the house on Third Street is by residential permit only Monday-Friday from 8 am to 4 pm. We have guest permits available for folks that prefer to park on the street for convenience. We also have private, off-street parking behind the house which is accessible via the alley from either Lee Street (intersection before our house) or Bloom Street (first intersection after you pass the house). You would take a left onto either and enter the alley that runs between Third and Second streets. Of course, no permit is required for our private spaces. While visiting Louisville, we strongly recommend you do not leave any valuables in your car whether you choose to park in our lot or on the street. We will not be held responsible for any items left in vehicles. If you are traveling with bicycles, we have storage space in the inn that you are welcome to use.
Our property is privately owned and as the innkeepers, we must reserve the right to refuse service to anyone and will not be responsible for accidents or injury to guests or for the loss or theft of money, jewelry or valuables of any kind.
