The Urban Craftsman is your one stop shop to an all things Louisville stay! Centralized location that is a stones throw to the famous Highlands Neighborhood, the arts and festivities of NuLu and the hip eateries and watering holes of Germantown. Countless restaurants at your fingertips. 

 The home itself is a complete work of art full of local touches that will make you never want to leave, and inspire you to remodel your own home. The architectural touches of this home are unmatched and completely unique. What may appear your standard shotgun is actually OH SO MUCH MORE! A few highlights: -Hand crafted built in kitchen table, built from salvaged bowling lanes from Louisville's famous Vernon Lanes! -Salvaged spiral staircase from the Heaven Hill distillery fire. We call it the 'Stairway to Heaven', which leads to a plush and private loft with a king bed, feels like a suite all in it's own! -Hand poured concrete counter tops and terra-cotta bathroom floors designed by a local artist.

The shower has twin shower heads, save water and shower together! OR TREAT YO' SELF and use both heads. We don't mind ;) -GIANT master bedroom with a HUGE walk in closet, for the master of the quarters. EXACTLY what you deserve. -Unique Queen size lofted bed over the kitchen and living space, expertly crafted, no one feels short changed! -Impeccable deck off the back of the house. Say hello to the neighbors free range chickens! (There's no rooster, so no worries about noise). Enjoy the thoughtfully designed outdoor space with friends and family!

Simply stunning and refreshing place to stay! We loved everything about it. Beds were very comfortable. Super clean. Modern design. Hosts were great. Location was perfect to tons of activities while tucked away in a quiet neighborhood. Outdoor space was super neat. Will most definitely book again next trip!


Whoa! This place is crazy nice! The touches and features in this home are untouchable, just truly one of a kind! Craftsman is an understatement, to cram this much detail into a shotgun house is an architectural phenomenon. Do not be fooled, this place is quite large!


If you are lucky enough to find this location available -BOOK IT NOW! This is an incredible house in the perfect Louisville area. My wife and three kids were a bit put out due to the recent ice storm, but thanks to The Urban Craftsman, we had a perfect staycation. The location was incredibly safe and accessible to the best of Louisville (Churchill Downs, downtown, Bardstown Rd). The interior and decor belonged on an HGTV television show. My children loved the loft as we listened to records and watched Netflix. The kitchen was perfect and provided everything we needed. The communication with the owners was beyond hospitable. We had an key issue (our mistake not theirs) in the early morning and the owners were ready to assist in the blink of an eye. Bravo Urban Craftsman.


Wow this place is awesome and the pics don't do any justice. I would highly recommend.


Great location and amazing house with a really awesome features. The host are really great at communicating and very responsive, in a quick manner! Can’t wait till next year to come back! Also beds and pillows are sooo comfy!


Really unique house with neat touches showing a bit of history in Louisville. Everything was right.


Great host, very responsive. The place is very unique with great decor using local artistic touches. Loved playing vinyl records on the record player - great touch. Safe neighborhood / very quiet.


Great place to stay. Good location and Great price. we really loved this house!


Amazing house, couldn’t be happier with my stay here


This is such a cute house with all of the amenities and great personal touches! If you have the opportunity, stay in this house!


Totally adorable space close to great restaurants. I will definitely stay there again.


Super stylish property with a ton of space and great sleeping options. Honestly one of the best nights sleep I've ever had. The four of us had more than enough space to spread out and enjoy. Great location to explore everything Louisville has to offer.


Really cute house! We always felt safe and we were a Lyft drive away from all the distilleries!!


Nice clean home. Great town to see Louisville Slugger Museum, Muhammad Ali museum etc. Follow the tips in the book, The Cafe was a great spot to eat. We always felt safe, however this is a typical inner city neighborhood of older homes close together.


Very cool space in a great location. Stay here if you can.


Amazing space! Loved the historic value in this house. Plenty of sleeping areas! Kitchen was fabulous with lots of space and openness! Kids had an adventurous time in the house! Cute spot close to everywhere we needed to be. Host available at all times and quick to respond. Definitely recommend this place and will definitely stay again if in town!


This place was amazing, thoughtful touches everywhere. They really do know how to be ready for their guests and I appreciated saving all that money on cleaning fees


I must begin by saying saying this a five star Airbnb. Expect an elegant place in a great location. The photos posted online are exactly what you can expect when staying at this very contemporary place. A clean and quiet neighborhood located 5 minutes to Bellarmine college, 7 minutes to Louisville college, 10 minutes from the Kentucky Derby (Churchill Downs) and 5 minutes to downtown. The parking is in the front and back. A very comfortable and clean home. If you like five star places to stay this is your gem. This home also has a backyard living area which I consider chic.


Excellent accommodations in a convenient location.


This house is better than advertised. Great location, great neighborhood, close to nearly everything. Outstanding host with great communication. You won’t be disappointed.


The design of the space is truly unique and we'll thought out. The interior feels so bright and spacious. Our group consisted of two couples and two teenage boys and it worked well for us.


Great space in a great location. Open, light, with fun loft spaces that our kids loved. Great back deck also. Thanks for having us!


My friend and I rented this space for a girls weekend in the city. First of all, the stuff we loved about this space. — The living room is GORGEOUS, and it’s what sold us on the space in the photos. Beautiful decor, great lighting, comfy seating. It’s wonderful! — The back deck is beautiful. It was too cold and rainy for us to use it, but it would be great in nicer weather. — Loved that this was a ~5 minute Uber ride to all of NuLu, Downtown, and Bardstown Road. — Felt very safe on this quiet neighborhood street. — Loved all the historic touches: stairs from an old firehouse, a table made from a bowling alley, etc. — Beds are really comfy! The not-so-good: — It felt like there were a lot of shortcuts taken in the renovation. No handrails on either set of stairs, no HVAC vents in the attic bedroom (it was so cold!), kitchen cabinets without any bottoms, trip hazard thresholds on almost every doorway, mismatched flooring throughout the home, bumpy and stained carpet in bedrooms. — The kitchen was definitely not stocked enough to do any real cooking in. You could microwave something or plate some takeout, but if you want to actually cook, you’ll need to bring bowls and spices and basically everything. We just went to the great restaurants nearby, so it worked out! — Both the bathroom and big bedroom downstairs smelled mildewy. And the shower was old and pretty grimey. The bad: — BUGS! I’m a country girl, so a bug or two doesn’t stress me out, but considering this was a cold weekend in March in a city house, there were wayyyy too many bugs for my liking. There were tiny black ants everywhere in the kitchen. We couldn’t set down even a water bottle for five minutes without it getting covered. There we gnats coming out of all the house plants, and my friend and I have at least 20 bugs bites between us in two days (from what, we’re not sure). Because of the rain, we didn’t spend any time outside, so it was from inside the house! Overall, I’m glad we were only there two nights. I won’t be booking this place again.


This was such a cute house and the pictures do not even do it justice! There was more than enough room for myself and my 3 children. The suggestions in the house manual were great. We felt safe in the neighborhood and even walked to one of the suggested restaurants in the manual the night we arrived. We were awoken by the neighbor's chickens, but we didn't mind. We actually got a chuckle out of it! I cooked dinner 1 of the nights we were there and the kitchen was sufficient. The children had plenty of room to play cards and board games at the kitchen table while I cooked. The only negative we found at this home was the tiny black ants we encountered in the kitchen area - mostly by the coffee station. They were not extreme, but it was unpleasant. That did not ruin our stay. The beds were comfortable and everything was clean. We would stay here again!


The Urban Craftsman was the perfect place to stay during our trip to Louisville and Mammoth Cave! The property had a ton of character. We loved the unique layout and all of the thoughtful local touches. The location was ideal for us too. We really enjoyed being within walking distance of the hip Highlands neighborhood. I highly recommend this spot for anyone looking to visit Louisville.


Great space and easy to communicate with. Thanks!


Amazing place in every way! Highly recommend it!!!


We absolutely loved this property!! Such cool stylish touches throughout the home! Everything was clean & comfortable! The beds were also great! Can’t wait for our next stay!!


Super easy checkin and the house lives up to all expectations.


This was one of the nicest AirBnb’s I’ve ever stayed. Great location in Louisville, stylish space and lots of tips on what to do while in the area. I’d stay here again in a heartbeat!
