Read All About It! Honeywick and the Restoration of the Gaffney House



January 17, 2024

When Honeywick has a hand in the projects we take on, we tend to be pretty proud of the finished product. The Gaffney House, a recent endeavor of ours, is no exception. However, we happen to be especially happy to announce the launch of this historic Louisville property! The Gaffney House was a full-service project, featuring work such as website design and development, custom content, photography, logo design, and brand creation.

“Every creative decision in the Gaffney House’s new brand was made to honor the history of the house.”

Cat Louis, Creative Director

What is the Gaffney House?

The Gaffney House, which was designed and constructed by James J. Gaffney, a Louisville-born architect who is credited with having helped design and construct the Waverly Hills Sanatorium, has been restored and renovated into a short-term rental house and event venue. Presently, rental opportunities include:

The house features four renovated bedrooms with updated bathrooms and amenities but still retains the unique architectural design and original details of the house. Guests can rent out the whole house with all bedrooms or a single floor, each of which includes two bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms, a living area, and a kitchenette. In detail, the first floor hosts the Gaffney Room and the Bourbon Room, and the second floor is home to the Derby Room and the Colonel Sanders Room.

The restoration and renovation efforts attempted to save as much of the original property as was safe to preserve the personality of the house. With the restorations complete, Gaffney Historic River, LLC, and Louisville Luxury Rentals are excited to offer the property as an event venue and rental house for overnight stays.

The house is located at 4515 Upper River Road, Louisville, KY on the Ohio River, and is conveniently close to the major interstates that will take you to Downtown Louisville, Cincinnati, Lexington, Nashville, or Indiana without any noise pollution. The owners state that the Gaffney House would be a great rental for visitors in town heading to the Kentucky Derby or Louisville’s music festivals, such as Bourbon and Beyond, Forecastle Festival, or Louder Than Life.
