About The Owner

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

Why The Owner chose Natural Bridge

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Family and Friends Backcountry Adventure

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: We've always claimed you can hike in all seasons and all weather; we had to move the campers to higher ground because it poured the rain - POURED. The weather turned cold - COLD. Wet and cold, they loved Wildcat Hollow. Individuals from WI and PA are not deterred by something so "everyday" as weather. We are about families making lifetime memories, having fun, participating in adventure, climbing rocks and being entertained by Mother Nature.<(:>) We will keep an eye out for our good friend "Nick." We love you guys and gals. Be safe. Be careful. God bless. Kenneth and Sheila

Boy Scout troop weekend

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Music to our ears as we heard the all those voices coming from the Meadow. And, who does not enjoy the smell of a fresh campfire. Look for a picture of these guests, as they sent some great ones for us to post. A picture in this case says a thousand words. Thank you for choosing Lillie's Cub Cabin, Cowboy's Camp Cabin and the Meadow. We are working to improve this campsite with small tent platforms. Of course, who ever has enough gravel? We stress that SCOUTING is a wonderful experience. Thank you for investing your time for SCOUTING. We look forward to your return visit. Be safe. Be careful. God bless. Kenneth and Sheila Brown

Owner's Response: This season, the fence and gate that borders Wildcat Hollow, the home of Lillie's Cub Cabin, is decorated in RED, WHITE and BLUE; we are feeling patriotic. God bless America. So, thank you for the two "real" Halloween pumpkins (Jack-O-Lanterns) that you carved and left for us and our guests to enjoy. Fall is here; Mother Nature has colored the landscape with reds, yellows, oranges, browns, blacks, greens (yes, those pine and hemlock trees will be green all year). We do hope you come back to Lillie's Cabin. Thank you for choosing Lillie's Cub Cabin. Be safe. Be careful. God bless. Kenneth and Sheila Brown

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing Lillie's Cub Cabin. It is not every day that a wedding happens at Miguel's. Ken and I don't know the whole "romantic story," but we were smiling all day (and we didn't attend the wedding). We try to give our guests the "simple touch, which is nothing much", but we give them our best efforts to ensure their stay with us is as good as it can get. We look forward to seeing you again. Thank you for your review. Be safe. Be careful. God bless. Kenneth and Sheila Brown

Beautiful place, lovely people!

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: Wisconsin to Kentucky was a long way to travel to see the Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge Areas. Thank you for giving us the opportunity to share our "Naturally Gorgeous" rock formations, landscapes and hiking trails. (This family spent some time at Wildcat Hollow exploring our 150 acres.) We say: "Welcome. We look forward to your return visit." Again, thank you for the wonderful comments regarding Lillie's Cub Cabin.
