About The Owner

Owners Bill and Rose Ramsay enjoy the Bridge for Peace over Blue Lick Creek at the retreat center. The tree lined creek has open fields on both sides up to the flood control dam and lake from which the creek flows.

The Owner purchased this house in 2009

Why The Owner chose Herrington Lake

The retreat center is on an 80 acre farm just down the road from our house. Our 6 children and 22 grandchildren have roots in Berea so we purchased it as a way to continue a family legacy of close relationships and hospitality in the context of God's creation.

What makes this house unique

We enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle of today's life, but not so remote that convenience and communication are lost. We enjoy the beauty of the surrounding hills and streams and room for play, hikes, meditation and good fellowship.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Such a peaceful place, a great place for an author/wroter. Lovely sunrise coming up over the hills.

Happiness Hills....perfectly named!

  • 5 of 5
The name rings the feeling any traveler would sing! The friendliness of the owners are an added delight to all who stay and enjoy the serenity of it all. This area of KY is very beautiful. The town of Berea has a wonderful artistic flare to it at every corner! With a bonus of being a college town, there are lots of things to do and places to shop and eat!
