Located just 50 minutes from Lexington, horse lovers will be in heaven at Historic Shelby Manor on the 625 acres of private bluegrass property at Arcadia Farm. The farm is a working cattle and Standardbred horse ranch and the historic residence is one of the oldest homes in the state, built in 1835 by the first governor of Kentucky.
Historic Shelby Manor offers an exceptional welcome to its guests with its imposing brick entrance, crafted iron gates, and winding tree-lined drive. The three-story mansion is graced with an expansive foyer and beautiful salons decorated with classical interiors, polished antiques, and Venetian glass chandeliers. The main floor is the central living space which includes the kitchen, dining room, crafts room, tv salon, and bathroom. Off the main floor is an outdoor patio and a wrap-around porch, perfect for enjoying Kentucky sunsets. Outside, the residence is shaded by large well-manicured trees and surrounded by lush green lawns.
Beginning on the second floor the residence offers four colonial bedrooms, one with a Jacuzzi tub. The third floor hosts a large private suite that can accommodate up to five people and/or serve as a fabulous space for children to gather.

Since Arcadia Farm is a working cattle and horse ranch it is important for guests to respect the grounds and the livestock. Guests are excluded from entering the barns unless accompanied by a staff person. Guest rooms are located on the second and third floors of the Manor. For safety reasons, therefore, we welcome children but only if they are 5 years old or older. Dogs are welcome on the property but ONLY if they remain outside the Manor.

My husband and I are retired university professors who have settled in the beautiful Blue Grass region of Kentucky. Despite vast international travel together we chose to retire here as we believe it is one of the most beautiful places in the world. If you love history, horses, romantic sunsets, and the great outdoors you will love Historic Shelby Manor at Arcadia Farm.
