Stay at one of the most breathtaking spaces in downtown Louisville. We have 17 beautiful lofts on the top two floors of a former industrial building. We boast 7 1/2+ ft windows with gorgeous views of the City, the Ohio River + the lush Floyds Knobs hills beyond. In each loft the furniture + open floor plan is configured to allow guests to have as many queen beds as they need while hosting friends + family in comfort. Our amenities are truly outstanding + we believe you will have an amazing time.
DESCRIPTION — Stay at one of the most unique + breathtaking places in downtown Louisville. Open the door to this 1,400 square foot penthouse loft, with 12 foot ceilings + in front of you are 40 feet of windows overlooking the expanse of the Ohio River + the one charming train bridge to the west + other more utilitarian bridges to the east that connect Louisville + Southern Indiana. This makes our view of Thunder Over Louisville as up close + personal as you can be—hands down one of the best views of the Thunder air show + fireworks in the city. The windows are 40 feet in length and 7 1/2+ feet in height. Every day I wake up deliriously happy because the first thing I see in the morning is this view + I stay that way all day for the same reason. I would love for you to experience this + more during your time in Louisville!
A string of adjectives for you that describe my space. . . Sun-drenched, Modern, Urban + Industrial Chic. The open floor plan allows you to enjoy time together with your friends + the distinct spaces created using groupings of furniture allow you to have more intimate gatherings when you choose. The glazed concrete floors highlight the raw, industrial origin of the space while providing a luxurious feel. The carefully chosen decor creates a sumptuous interior for a truly comfortable stay in an edgy space.
This loft is 1 of 6 penthouse, north-facing + full riverview lofts in the historic Glassworks Building in downtown Louisville. Glassworks is a multi-use facility dedicated to the art of glass, featuring 2 working glass studios, 2 glass galleries, a walk-in workshop + daily tours. That gives you a lot to do before you even step outside the building.
I HAVE 17 LOFTS TOTAL IN THE SAME BUILDING: To view all of my listings at once, click on the round picture of me directly under the heading photo, which is directly to the right of the listing headline. It will take you to a mini-profile. Click on my picture again + it will take you to my full profile. You will know you’re there when you see a large square photo of me to the left with “Hey I’m Sarah!” to the right at the top of the page. From there, you can click on the “Loft Reverie in Downtown Louisville, KY” Wish List to view all my listings on one web page. Also, on my profile page you will get to see all of my reviews (hundreds of them!).
We have the same amenities in all the lofts — the same bathroom, the same kitchen, the same couch, etc. The only difference (aside from decor) is size / square footage + number of bathrooms.
We have 6 tiers of lofts: BIG, BIGGER, BIGGEST, GIANT, GIANT+ and PALATIAL. This loft, 704, is a BIGGEST Tier Loft.
BIG Tier — 900 square feet (sf) — 1 bathroom
BIGGER Tier — 1,200 sf — 1 bathroom
BIGGEST Tier — 1,400 sf — 1 bathroom
GIANT Tier — 1,700 sf — 1 bathroom
GIANT+ Tier — 1,900 sf — 2 bathrooms
PALATIAL Tier — 2,800 sf — 3 bathrooms
In our tiers, you may have noticed that we start with the BIG Tier. That’s because there is no small. These are complete homes (condos) that range from 900 to 2,800 square feet. The BIG Tier is 2 to 4 times larger than an average hotel room + the PALATIAL Tier is 14 times larger. These condos are the size of many freestanding homes.
If needed, we can host up to 175-250+ in our entire suite of lofts. Amazingly, there’s even more information we could give you on our whole set-up + if you are interested in the overwhelming amount of details we have for you, just give us a holler y’all ;-D
DETAILS — In short, we customize the lofts to meet our guests’ needs. The lofts are completely flexible furniture-wise, in no small part so that each guest can meet their particular objectives with the space. We find there are three types of guests: one that wants to stay within a particular budget for a large group, one that is a small group or couple seeking a luxurious + spacious vacation home in the heart of downtown Louisville + one that is seeking a Sweet Spot between the number of beds we can put in a loft + the amount of spaciousness we can provide. Whatever you desire, we can achieve!!
Sleeping — Sleeps up to 26 people (that's up to 12 queen-size beds + 1 super-massive, super-comfy couch at 2 people per bed/couch)
There are 2 distinct sleeping areas + because of the floor plan you can sleep up to 2 couples with visual privacy + up to 26 with less privacy. All of our beds are memory foam mattresses (topped with more memory foam!) + we have even more memory foam toppers on hand for people who almost want to suffocate in the plushness of all this memory foam. And for our firm-mattress fans, we can remove the memory foam toppers to make the bed less soft. Also, we wash all of our bedding including our quilts, blankets + body pillowcases each + every time. And we use 500 thread count sheets + mattress pads. Our apologies in advance for the trouble you are going to have getting yourself out of bed! But we’re not sorry… we just love you that much!!
Bathroom — 1 Bathroom + for guest numbers above 6, access to a second bathroom (entry from the hallway) will be made available.
One of the first things you’ll notice is stacks of plush, hotel-quality white towels… we’ve got your back on this! There is a shower with a tub, toilet, sink, mirror + several shelves for toiletries. In the shower you will find dispensers full of shampoo, conditioner + bath gel. On + in the vanity you will find hand soap, makeup removing pads, cotton balls, Q-tips + black washcloths for makeup removal.
Eating + Dining areas — Dining area seats 2-26+ people
Good news! We have the technology to set up a table to accommodate the size of your party, whatever that number may be!! Our tables fold down to accommodate parties as small as two + can be combined together to accommodate parties of almost any size. They are easy to move + can be put discreetly to the side when not in use. We also offer a combination of modern, sleek, stackable metal chairs + leather chairs (that are soft like butter).
Speaking of butter… do you want to eat? Good! The Kitchen is stocked with appliances + amenities for your dining pleasure. Each kitchen comes stocked with a Keurig Coffee Maker + coffee pods, bottled water, sugar + sweeteners, creamer + black tea… we even have a teapot! If there is an appliance that you want, chances are I have it in my personal space + can make it available to you. As they say, "Ask + you shall receive" — well, most probably, if I have what you are looking for! One last thing, we have extra tables + chairs and quite a few can be put in your space without getting in your way.
Entertaining + Lounging — Welcome to the Lounge Pit. . .
I have a large modular, gray leather, sectional sofa that can be set up as a very large + deep rectangular-shaped couch or as, what I believe is technically called, a Lounge Pit. It's a great spot to chill + watch a movie or two or even get some work done on your laptop. Speaking of getting work done, you will have high speed fiber WiFi coursing through your computer. But what will you listen to whilst you are trapped in the Lounge Pit? How about my iPhone/Android/iPad/Tablet/Whatever-System-You-Use-For-Music speakers. Yeah, I think that should about do it. Oh wait, there is an HDTV in said lounging area. Yep, that's to entertain you, the lounge-y one lounging in the Lounge Pit.
No smoking + no pets (I would get kicked out of my place + I know you don't want that ;-D)

Remember, we want to make your visit to the Derby City a stellar experience — really + truly we do — so please contact us if extra luxuries are needed. We will assess what mountains need to be moved + acquire the equipment to move said mountains.
I live in the building + have a team working with me, so either myself or my team will be nearby if needed.
I grew up in Louisville, KY, and then traveled all over the world. Plus, I have lived in many places throughout the US. Throughout that time Louisville has always remained my favorite city. There is just too much that is great + unique about this city I call home once again!
