Experience the exciting and colorful spectacle of thoroughbred racing in a private suite with your party of 10 as the nation's finest horses compete at Churchill Downs.

Horse racing in Kentucky is rich in history, dating back to 1789 when the first race course was laid out in Lexington. Almost 100 years later, in 1875, Churchill Downs officially opened and began its tradition as "Home of the Kentucky Derby."

Private Estate (Louisville)
Enjoy a 3-night stay for up to 10 people at Roseheights, a renovated historic custom designed home situated on one of the most elite streets in the city in the prestigious Highlands/Cherokee Gardens neighborhood, just blocks from restaurants, nightlife and shops. This beautifully appointed three-story home has five bedrooms, four full and two half-bathrooms, workout room, huge game room with pool table, bright sun room and large private pool in a beautifully landscaped backyard. Not available during Derby Week.

Built in 1901, Roseheights was designed by the same architects who built the famed Twin Spires at Churchill Downs. Previously owned by the Mayor of Louisville and Lieutenant Governor of Kentucky, this prestigious home has been host to many notable figures in U.S. history, including Pulitzer Prize winning writer Carl Sandberg, First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt, Presidential Candidate Adlai Stevenson, and Presidents Truman and Johnson.

Roseheights sits on the edge of one of the region's prettiest parks, Frederick Olmstead-designed Cherokee Park. Additionally, the house is a short 15 minute drive from Valhalla Golf Course, 10 minutes from Churchill Downs and just blocks away from some of the best restaurants in the city, including the ever-expanding "urban bourbon" trail.

Based on availability.  If Roseheights is unavailable, you may be offered accommodations at another comparable private estate. 

Southern Style Country Brunch
Enjoy a classic Southern brunch for 10 prepared and served by a local chef in the Roseheights kitchen. Let the chef suggest some regional favorites or help create the menu that will be served one morning during your stay.
