Focus: Nature lovers, rock climbers, zip liners, hikers, photographers, fishermen and canoe travelers. Kentucky Wildflowers, LLC, is located at Wildcat Hollow Farm. There are 150 acres here surrounded by hemlock, pine, tulip and many other trees indigenous to Eastern Kentucky. You may hear the eerie sounds of the Baird Owl or the clear, crisp call of the Whippo-will. The Kentucky Natural Bridge State Park and the Red River Gorge is down the road for those who are obsessed with arches and cliff climbing. There is easy access to Natural Stone Arches sculpted by 70 million years of wind and water and towering cliffs encircling steep, forested slopes and narrow stream valley called the 'Clifty Wilderness' by cliff climbers and naturalists. The hiking trails are Easy, Moderate and Strenuous covering hundreds of miles and maintained for hikers of all ages. Yet, if you are looking for the primitive, less traveled trails, you will not be disappointed. Note: The Gorge is a National Natural Landmark and is managed year round by US Forest Service for public use and enjoyment.
We enjoy living in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. Although we are not totally isolated, traffic jams are rare. The air seems fresher and clearer. We enjoy traveling on the 2-lane blacktop road (KY 11) lined with trees and wildflowers; a couple times a wildcat has leaped across our route and scampered up the roadside hillside; too fast to get a picture, but a memory was created. One early morning, Ken rounded a corner about a mile from here and a black bear was running ahead of him in his lane. Ken was braking and the car was almost sitting on the bear's butt when finally, it veered off into the forest. In the winter, we feed the wild turkeys. Turkeys have a hard time surviving bad winters. There are days that we are delighted with things that happen in our environment; this is a good thing for us - to be delighted.
The Owner purchased this cabin in 2003
Sheila's Tale: My mother and I would ride a taxi to Natural Bridge and spend the day. She packed our food in a red plastic carrying cooler with 'Coke' written on the front. Home canned green beans, and fried potatoes, corn bread fritters wrapped in a dish cloth, a mason jar of water and a bunch of green onions were our food for the day. We hiked the trails and swam in a lake with turtles and fishes nibbling on our toes. The taxi would pick us up in the evening and take us home to Irvine, KY, 30 miles away. I learned to appreciate trees and wildflowers and the beauty of nature in the Natural Bridge, Red River Gorge and Danial Boone Forest. My heart has been softened to nature's beauty throughout the world because of my visits to this area. And, I brought my daughters, their friends and my Girl Scout Troop here. We camped out and did all the things that I did in childhood and more. Further, I brought my grandchildren here. Where else could I retire but to the place that heart-felt memories of my mother teaching me about nature and the natural world and, me, in turn, teaching my daughters and grandchildren to cook a meal on an open fire; and further, helping young girls experience the self awareness that almost everyone has bad hair in the morning. My heart is here because what I value is here: all kinds of natural beauty. I am here and I welcome you to visit us at Kentucky Wildflowers, LLC. You're gonna love it.
Ken's Tale: It has been my life-long dream to live in a log cabin on the hill in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. We live on the farm year round.
We have 150 acres to hike. There are trails cleared for convenience and enjoyment; the trees and flowers can be enjoyed during nature walks. Also, you can invent your own trail if you want to get off the beaten path. Best of all, a creek runs through this property; the creek has never been completely dry. Some of the holes are deep enough to get really wet. The property is called Wildcat Hollow and is surrounded by cliffs. A cool breeze blows all summer down the hollow across the creek. At night, birds get tuned up and sing. You can see the stars when the clouds are gone and it is so dark at night.
My husband and I (60-somethings), two of our children and their spouses and two of their friends (all 30-somethings), and our five grandchildren (all age six and under) met up at Lily's Cub Cabin, travelling from Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and North Carolina for a three-night leaf-peeper adventure in early October, 2014. The Wisconsinites and their Pennsylvania friends are hard-core campers, while we North Carolinians were more into "glamping." Lily's was the perfect combination venue for our adventure. Lily's gave us the opportunity for the tent campers and the cabin campers to stay together. The grandparents and children ("city slickers") slept in the cozy cabin with HOT SHOWERS, RUNNING WATER AND HEAT AND ELECTRICITY, while the rock-climbing, backcountry hikers roughed it in their tents a stone's throw away. We had the option of cooking in the clean, fully-equipped kitchen if we didn't want to use camp-stoves. At night, we sat by the campfire enjoying s'mores and talking about the horseback rides enjoyed by the grandkids (they met the gentle "Cracker" at the stables Sheila & Dan recommended), the rock climbing at Red River Gorge (all five children harnessed-up and successfully climbed the rockface recommended by the very kind and generous proprietors), and the hiking at Natural Bridge. The family was fully immersed in nature for a wonderful weekend. Do not hesitate to stay at Lily's Cub Cabin. There isn't anything that Dan & Sheila wouldn't do to make your stay more enjoyable or more comfortable. They are people-people and love where they live and want to share that joy with all who visit. Sheila & Dan have other little cabins on the property as well as tent platforms. The property is secluded and safe. The only caveat for would-be campers is that because of the steep roads on parts of the property, and the steps going into the cabin and the open stairway to the loft, this property is better suited to non-handicapped individuals. Clean, comfortable, cozy - wonderful!
The property was wonderful. Some of our group stayed in Lillie's cabin, some stayed in the Cowboy cabin & some camped in the meadow. The cabin was comfortable & very clean! The meadow was beautiful with all of the changing colors of the leaves. Our entire group had a wonderful time. Ken & Sheila are so very nice & accommodating! They went out of their way to ensure our stay was enjoyable. We are already making plans to go back! We highly recommend staying here. It is close to everything you would want to do while visiting Red River Gorge.
This past weekend was absolutely amazing Lillie's Cub Cabin made our very first trip to the beautiful area everything and more. Ken and Sheila were so kind and sweet to help us with anything we needed and helped set us on our way to see some of the great sites around the wonderful gorge and natural bridge.The cabin was GREAT so cute,clean,relaxing and peaceful. My boyfriend and I had a wonderful trip and can't wait to come back and visit the lovely area and hopefully get to stay longer!
Thank you so very much for the wonderful cabin and making us feel right at home!
Had a wonderful time in Lillie's Cub Cabin. We stayed there for a family reunion and were very impressed with the cabin and surrounding area. The cabin was beautiful and spotlessly clean!!!! Sheila and Kenneth are very sweet, they were always available for anything we needed. I would highly recommend it to anyone visiting the area
We were in the area for a wedding and stayed in this cabin. It was spotless. The owners were very accommodating. We didn't get a chance to use the fire pit or spend much time outside but the cabin is setup for relaxing on the front or back porch. I would definitely recommend and will stay again.
Our family stayed for a couple of days last month and had a wonderful time exploring eastern Kentucky for the first time. The cabin was neat as a pin and had every amenity you could think of...even in its remote spot! We were close enough to all of the neat sights like Natural Bridge and the Daniel Boone forest...but best of all was hearing our 5 kids share a bedroom together (upstairs), exploring the creek and canyon, and visiting with Ken, Sheila, and their dogs. What a lovely host family who truly put a lot of thought into every little personal touch. We'd love to come back sometime!
