A gorgeous horse farm in Cox’s Creek, Kentucky is this week's Home Of The Week. In Cox's Creek, you get to experience true, spacious, country living that’s close enough to the city to still be convenient. Cox’s Creek is located just 30 minutes from Metro Louisville and about 15 minutes from Bardstown—one of the best small towns in America.
Louisville Road is the main road leading into Bardstown from Cox’s Creek, and on it you will find the local post office and elementary school—Cox’s Creek Elementary—just minutes from the house. Horses can get some new digs at Stage Shop Inc. and Bardstown offers a wonderful variety of boutiques and shops the closer you get to town.
Once Louisville Road turns into North Third Street, hometown eateries spring up all over the place. Check out Bourbon City Bistro, Tom Pig’s Restaurant, Kurtz Restaurant, El Jimador Real Mexican Restaurant, Hadorn’s Bakery, Mammy’s Kitchen, Stephen Foster Restaurant, Hunan Restaurant, and The Chapeze House for some great food! Bardstown embraces its identity as the Bourbon capitol of the world with the annual Bourbon Festival and its catchy invitation to “sample their spirit.” Home to “My Old Kentucky Home,” “The Stephen Foster Story,” vintage trains and museums dedicated to the Civil War, the city is filled with fun things to do. Stay entertained at the Nelson County Public Library, Bardstown City Pool, Whispering Wheels Roller Rink, Keystone Cinemas, or by touring one of the local distilleries like Heaven Hill.
