You will be enchanted by this unique and very private mountain retreat fronting a championship 18 hole golf course. Wasioto Winds, a Golf Digest nationally ranked course, is out your front door, yet this property is surrounded by undeveloped mountain property, part of a private family estate, and the Pine Mountain State Resort Park, with its miles of hiking trails (including the famous 'Chained Rock'), beautiful lodge, swimming pool and dining room.
Your stay at this home will entitle you to a special rate of only $25.00 (any time, any day, including green fee and cart) at Wasioto Winds. No clubs? $10.00 rental fee and you're good to go! Call the Wasioto Winds clubhouse at 606-337-1066 to book your tee times! Pro Jerry Shofner will be glad to fill you in on this beautiful course.
Don't feel like golf today? Go right out your door on a leisurely nature walk or a rigorous mountain hike offering stunning views, secret rock shelters, pure mountain streams, blooming Mountain Laurel and Rhododendron. Hike the old L&N rail road bed alongside Clear Creek to an 1893 rail road tunnel and tressel, where you can fly fish for trout, small mouth bass, redeye and sunfish.
A pure mountain stream runs right through the front yard offering a cool retreat on hot summer days and endless crawdad-hunting entertainment for youngsters. After an invigorating day of golf or hiking, RELAX on the front porch while you grill up some steaks and enjoy your favorite beverage.
Pine Mountain State Resort Park surrounds this property and offers miles of hiking trails with names like The Living Stairway, Honeymoon Falls, Rock Hotel and the famous Chained Rock. Pine Mountain is Kentucky's oldest state park and hosts the beautiful Kentucky Mountain Laurel Festival at the Laurel Cove Ampitheater each May where the governor crowns the Mountain Laurel Festival Queen from among candidates from every college in the state.
Those who want to enjoy the mountain scenery from an ATV can access the fantastic and scenic Wilderness Trail Offroad Park less than 10 miles distant. Or they can travel 35 miles to nearby Harlan County with its nationally popular 30,000 acre+ ATV recreation area, Black Mountain Recreation Park and Evarts Trail Head, a #1 national off-road destination! We have plenty of room to park your trailer and an area where you can wash down your ride for the trip back.
If you are here during the big game, watch it on either of two Sony flat screens with High Definition programming from Direct TV.
The home has 12 rooms, 5,000 square feet, five bedrooms and four full baths. There are 3 king beds, 1 queen bed and 1 set of twin beds. Plenty of room for two families to share a memorable vacation
Each bath is modern with newer Kohler fixtures and even a whirlpool bath and separate steam shower.
An updated kitchen offers granite countertops, Jennair cooktop and oven, microwave, coffee maker and a fireplace!
If you're here during tournament time, no worries. You can watch the big game on either of two Sony flat screen TVs with HIGH DEFINITION programming from Direct TV. It doesn't get any better than that!
WARNING: Spend a week here and you will never want to leave!!!
This property was our home until spring of 2008 when we purchased another treasured family home in nearby Pineville. We could not bear to sell this wonderful, secluded home and it gives us great pleasure to allow others to enjoy its many charms.
We were very impressed with the house, the area, and the atmosphere of it all! We are hoping to come back in June 2015! We want to make it an annual family trip!!!
We spent a long weekend here with two other couples. The house offers plenty of space for everyone. The kitchen is well-stocked and large - we found all of the kitchenware that we needed for meal preparation. Close to Cumberland Gap National Park, sight-seeing and hiking was a short drive away. We really enjoyed pre-dinner conversation on the spacious front porch, and after-dinner conversation at the fire pit one evening. We would not hesitate to return.
Me and a group of friends rented this house to have a better view on the Perseids meteor shower. The house was really lovely. Very clean, extremely spacious, and the front porch is fantastic! It (the porch) has TWO ceiling fans and was extremely comfortable, even in the 100% humidity 88 degree weather. The owner is a really nice guy that lives nearby, who was most pleasant to rent from. I couldn't have had any trouble getting back the security deposit, because he gave it back to me before our last night! I guess a group of librarians doesn't seem too intimidating. :)
There are great hiking trails that begin on the property, I believe one spills onto a parking lot for the state park. The kitchen was fully stocked, and the place had a couple nice big TVs for retreating inside. The house has several distinct areas for people to lounge that are nicely spread apart. Perfect for groups that want a few different places for kids or what have you.
Well, this was like flipping through pages of a storybook from the moment we arrived!The photos can't describe the beauty of this place.Very unique,and directions were a breeze.I would highly recommend this property to anyone looking.Mr. Golden is a wonderful person, and thank you so much for keeping this property in the family. The dining table is beautiful,wonderful family meals we shared there.The property is clean and well maintained.The stairwell is awesome and a great place to take family photos.Plenty of dishes to go around but I would suggest more serving pieces, as we cooked up a storm every day! I found an antique tea cart in the pantry and placed it in the dining room for a dessert cart,perfect.
Great location for day trip to the National Park,or take a stroll along the old L&N trail,truly like stepping back in time.There was plenty of space for all eight of us.It is really breathtaking!You wont be disappointed! Would love to come back another time.Late in posting my review,sorry about that.
My family spent several days enjoying this beautiful home. The listing and pictures are very accurate. The home is huge- with many sitting rooms to relax and enjoy this peaceful setting. The kitchen is also very spacious with all amenities available to prepare meals. While the property is very private, there are several grocery stores and restaurants just 10 minutes down the highway. The owner, Jim, was quick to answer all my questions. Our 3 kids, ages 2, 5, and 8 played for hours in the front creek. My mother and father-in-law found the place to be wonderful as well. We took day trips and hikes to Pine Mountain State Resort Park and Cumberland Gap National Park- both were beautiful and well worth a visit. I would not hesitate to recommend this home to a family looking for a quiet getaway to the mountains.
This spacious home is a HOME that makes you feel...well, at home. It is spacious and accomodating - everything you need is there, in the kitchen, paper products, etc... they even have a great selection of books to read! My husband and I have 2 children and we made a sort of apartment out of the room and bedroom adjacent to the dining room and were able to feel like we weren't waking the rest of the house... and there were plenty of places to hang out without having to tiptoe around. At one point, the 5 adults who were there, were all reading and napping in different parts of the house while the kids napped!
The swingset and sandbox are placed where the shade makes them perfect for kids and my 2 and 5 year old loved throwing rocks in the creek and wading in with their water shoes on! We never ran out of things to do - hiking the trails, exploring the creek, golfing at Wasioto Winds... it is the type of vacation that actually gives you the opportunity to relax, explore the woods and be with your family. My kids had so much fun.
What a lovely place. We kept talking about coming back some day to see it all in the fall...Thanks for sharing it.
