A 19th-Century Farm with 21st-Century Sensibilities

Built to last, our Main House had been standing for decades before the outbreak of the Civil War. We’ve preserved its elegance and historic charm while renovating it to meet today’s expectations—updating the interior, but not so much that the original owners couldn’t find their way to the kitchen.

Current owners Laura Lee Brown and Steve Wilson collaborated with Bittners, Louisville’s oldest continually operating design firm, to create a relaxing canvas for sharing their contemporary art collection with visitors and overnight guests.

Tour the Main House

When it’s not occupied by events or guests, the Main House is open for tours. Along with its adjacent Smokehouse, the Main House is listed in the National Historic Register. Step inside to take in the wide-ranging collection of contemporary art from living artists, from hand sketches to digital media. The Main House rotates exhibitions, so you can find something new and different at nearly every visit.

Stay at Hermitage Farm

Located only twenty miles outside of Louisville, our Main House offers a break from the everyday world and a chance to reconnect and recharge. Surrounded by stately pin oaks that frame views of lush, green farmland, the house provides all the comforts while retaining its original splendor.
