As one guest describes it, 'nothing can compare to the excellent accommodations and peaceful surroundings we truly enjoyed in this cottage by the river...to wake up to an October Fall Morning with the leaves falling and gentle breezes will stay in our memories and the many picture we took for many years to come...thank-you for making our stay truly remarkable.'

My husband and I love to fish and boat on the Kentucky River as well as enjoy the many country side beauties of our scenic state. Entertaining our family and friends with southern style hospitality is very important to us. We also love people and want to provide a place for others to experience the beauty of the outdoors and nature.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2005
We purchased this three acre piece of property to have easy access to the river for boating and fishing. Though the house needed to be completely remodeled and the surrounding area cleaned, the view was overwhelmingly beautiful and made all the hard work worth it. The property is located 10 minutes from Lexington and 1 mile from Exit 99 of I-75 off of Ky 2328, so it is easy for visitors to locate when traveling in the scenic Bluegrass.
We love to stay at this property as the accommodations are private facing the Kentucky River with a spring-fed waterfall and stairs leading the the river's edge for easy access to fishing and boating. It is very relaxing for us to unwind in the gazebo hot-tub which looks out over the river or just sit on the deck and enjoy all of natures wonderful sounds.
I cannot say enough good things about Kentucky River Cottages! Location, accommodations, amenities, scenery, owner, and staff are the absolute best you'll find anywhere! My family and I occupied all three units on Mother's Day weekend, and we're still raving about this gem in the heart of the Bluegrass. We can hardly wait for an opportunity to return, and think autumn would be a great time to more thoroughly enjoy the hot tub, outdoor cooking & dining, and the fire pit. Basically everything you need is provided--just bring your own food and you're all set! There are indoor and outdoor games available on the property, and free wireless internet. I was born and raised in Kentucky, and this has become my favorite place in this great state for a getaway trip. It's even better than the pictures you see here, so do not hesitate to book this property. One note: only the ground floor unit is suitable for anyone with mobility issues, as you must walk up steps to the other units. My 87-year old mom stayed with us in the ground floor unit. She uses a walker, and we did fine.
Truly unique, comfortable, relaxing cottages right on the Kentucky River. Beautiful, tranquil setting in the woods literally feet away from the river. The owners and manager are warm, friendly, accomodating, and diligent in ensuring your comfort and meeting your needs. The cottages themselves are well-stocked and have comfortable beds, and are especially perfect for multi-family/couple gatherings. The porch on the main unit gives a panaramic view of the river, and if you like outdoor activities, these cottages are definitely your place to be. For us, gathering with friends, good conversation, reading, enjoying a glass of wine on the porch, and sharing meals together were our activities of choice, although the location is super convenient for exploring the area as it is just a very short distance off I-75. We shared a five-day vacation here with friends and thoroughly enjoyed our stay.
This has to be THE BEST waterfront view available as a rental in Kentucky! Just a mile off I-75 and minutes from all the glorious attractions in Lexington, this slice of paradise is secluded amid towering sycamores, stately oaks, and majestic maples. The decks open onto the Kentucky River facing magnificent limestone palisades with waterfalls cascading to the river below. The view is so breathtaking you'll never want to leave the deck. And each unit has its own large private deck. You can practically fish from the deck off the ground unit. On our recent visit, we were delighted every day by an Osprey crisscrossing the river and diving for fish. We also had numerous sightings of kingfishers, great blue herons, wood ducks, and mallards. Songbirds and tree frogs serenaded us day and night. These cottages are immaculate and well stocked with everything you need to cook and stay awhile. We loved watching the full moon rise above the trees while basking in front of a bonfire with an endless supply of wood. Mist hovered over the river while the frogs and cicadas sang through the night. We had a reunion of family and friends. There was ample parking and well furnished patios to accommodate all. The flowers and landscaping are amazing, fed by a discreetly hidden irrigation system; they are lush, vibrant, and manicured. The Kentucky River Cottages are not just a place to spend the night. This is a destination, a relaxing, renewing Garden of Eden experience.
The title says it all. These cottages are that and more. My family and I totally enjoyed our relaxing stay for the holiday. The cottages were decorated very tastefully and was stocked with the essentials we needed for a home away from home. Brenda was very accomodating with our schedule and there was no pressure for checking in or checking out. These cottages are immaculently clean and all of the beds are very comfortable. The scenic veiw of the river added to the serene atmosphere and privacy is not an issue because each cottage has it's own entrance. We didn't get a chance to enjoy the sweetheart tub or the hot tub but I will definitely stay here again when the climate is more conducive for those activities. We are going to plan a visit so we can take full advantage of the fishing as well.
Went to canoe on the Ky River and it was too high and rough. Ended up having a great two days anyway. Went to Lexington for a day at the UK gardens and spent time in the Richmond Winchester area. Great place close to the Interstate.Spent alot of time on the deck in the evening and early morning. Felt like we were in another time it was so quiet and scenic in the trees. Wonderful cottage and Brenda was terrific. Will come back again. Deck directly overlooks the Ky River and the grounds are very pretty. Close to restaurants if you want but you would not have to leave with all the amenities availble. The beds are clean and the apts stocked with everything someone would need including a fireplace, tvs, and comfortable beds. Clean and well decorated. Very well kept- -owner obviously cares and lives close by and is available if needed. Made us feel welcome and like a relative, Could not asl for more. Hot tub and outside sweetheart tub on the middle floor under a tree canopy, Would be spectacular in the fall with the leaves turning color. Rip Tides Bar and Restaurant right around the corner. We visited Acftes of Land Winery right up the road in Richmond and ate dinner at a Mexican Restaurant , Also had some drinks on the outside deck at Halls on the River and at the Waterfront not too far away on the other night, Checked out the canoe rentals at Three Rivers and will be back up to try it.Unique area of Ky - the Pallasaides. Beautiful and relaxing!!! . .
Charm and secluded with outstanding view of River, boaters and wild life (especially large birds nesting on cliff). Wonderful place to recharge the battery from stress and work a day world.
Located between Lexington and Richmond Kentucky just one mile off I-75 ext 99.
