A Stay in the Bluegrass State

Pause a while where the South Elkhorn Creek embraces a bit of history. This house AND this property have unique stories of their own and we love to share. Historic Scottwood sits on five & one half acres and provides early morning views of neighboring horse farms and dazzling sunsets in the evening. Miles of limestone fences and beautiful horse farms await you and your camera as you travel our scenic roadways.

Explore Kentucky, the Bluegrass State

THE KENTUCKY HORSE PARK: The Kentucky Horse Park is not only a working horse farm, international equestrian competition venue, an educational theme park, but is a treasure to our state and a facility unlike any other in the world.
KEENELAND: From its inception, Keeneland was intended to be a special place – one that symbolizes the best in Thoroughbred racing in the heart of horse country. We may be prejudiced but we think Keeneland is the prettiest racetrack in the U. S.

Living Life On The South Elkhorn

Scottwood is 5 minutes outside of Midway, KY on Leestown Rd. (U.S. 62/421), sitting between Margaux Thoroughbred Farm (entrance on Moore's Mill Rd) and The Australian Equine Performance Center. The South Elkhorn Creek, running through Scottwood's historical property, is known for it's small mouth bass fishing, canoeing and it's beauty. Local history invokes stories of Daniel Boone walking the banks of The Elkhorn right here in Woodford County.
