They were prepping for a wedding the morning we stopped by, but we did enjoy the walk around the grounds. We will be back the next time we are in Louisville. A very beautiful property in a rolling residential neighborhood.

Visited on a Saturday morning for a tour. The docent meets you in the lobby of the visitor center to take you to the house. The tour itself took about an hour without going to check out the outbuildings. The house is period correct. The...More

I would normally give this place a four star revue, but the tour guide Jeanne, was fantastic. She made the tour and history of the home come alive. I do believe, she could have told us stories for a heck of a lot longer than...More

Locust Grove immerses you in a fascinating story in American history - where two surveyors worked and lived, hired by Thomas Jefferson, to survey the west. The docents who are knowledgeable and interesting bring to life the meticulously renovated Georgian-style home - think Jane Austen...More

taxis outside of spac after concert? wine/snacks prices? (1 Replies)
Hi,going to concert tonight (Chicago and Doobies, can't wait!) Haven't been in years......questions: how expensive are beer/wine and light snacks? We are staying at the Locust Grove on Rt 9 in Malta, it looks close? Can we walk there and take cab back to not deal with parking? Any finally, any good places to eat outside of SPAC but close? Does parking cost? My,, I didn't know I had so many questions! Thanks for any help.

Oh, sorry I did not see this until now! You should not try to walk from Locust Grove, it's too far! The parking is free. I believe that you can leave your car overnight in the lot and cab back to the hotel later. The beer/wine and apps are overpriced (as you would expect), but make sure you try a dough boy from Esperanto! Enjoy the concert! It should be awesome!

Has anyone stayed here recently? Post March 1. We have reservations for 1 night next week. Their old location is now a La Quinta and there website now shows new location is across the street. Not sure to if we should cancel since they haven't updated their website yet. 800 number people knows nothing and I really don't want to call long distance from Canada for just one night stay. If anyone have driven by and have seen the new hotel please comment. Thankyou.
