About Alice Rice

Log home built as Mom's dream. Originally a gathering place for the 8 children, spouses, grandchildren, friends. Mom and Dad moved for a night and stayed for their lifetime. Much advice was provided while rocking on the porch or taking a walk in the woods, or fishing in the pond. Described as serene and peaceful by some. Adventurous and lively by others. Pool and hot tub available in season. View of 400 acre farm and surrounding foothills.

Alice Rice purchased this cabin in 1989

What makes this cabin unique

Many memories have been made sitting and talking on the porch. On bourbon trail, avail for KY Derby

Fantastic Basecamp for the Bourbon Trail!

  • 5 of 5
The charming cabin proved the perfect basecamp for hitting the Jim Beam, Heaven Hill, and Maker's Mark distilleries—all in one day! It slept seven guys comfortably and provided ample room for board games, cooking, video games, and more. We took in the gorgeous view at sunrise, and made use of the pool and fire pit at sunset. Furthermore, Alice and George were very helpful in providing local tips and trip ideas! Thanks to both for an excellent getaway weekend!

Best Way to Do Kentucky

  • 5 of 5
We actually stayed in the family's old Farm house. We had 6 people in our group. It was perfect. The view alone from the rocking chairs sitting on the front the front wrap-around porch overlooking the idyllic green farmlands down below was worth the trip. Having the pool in the backyard and the hot tub on the back porch, was just bonus. It is just far enough out of Bardstown that you feel out in the country but close enough to get into town for groceries or whatever else you need. Very close to the Bourbon Trail, Gesthemani, and beautiful scenic drives.

Owner's Response: It is always a pleasure to serve KY hospitality on silver platter. Glad you enjoyed all the amenities. Hopefully you had time to relax and read on the porch. The breeze is a welcome relief in the summer. Please come back.

Cabin life with Gorgeous Views of Kentucky

  • 5 of 5
The cabin is so cute. It's child-friendly and pet-friendly. We were greeted by two friendly dogs and we were allowed to bring our dog. There are lots of places to sit outside: the front porch (with a gorgeous view of a valley and knobs), a concrete table with chairs (same view) and a deck off of the side of the house. The fog rolled in in the morning and we awoke to the sounds of cows in the distance. Very relaxing!

Owner's Response: Thanks for your remarks. There are distinct views from many spots around the cabin. The fog can be quite beautiful appearing on the rolling hills and in the woods. Many wildlife sounds are heard that make the visit intriguing.

Like coming home! Perfect base camp for touring the Bourbon Trail. Especially enjoyed the two sweet dogs who ran to greet us whenever we returned to the cabin. Beautifully situated. Fabulous front porch. Convenient kitchen.

Excellent weekend get-away

  • 5 of 5
We rented this cabin for a long weekend with my brother and a few
friends. From beginning to end, our overall experience was
excellent.

Beautiful log cabin with full kitchen, living room, downstairs
bedroom, and upstairs loft. The owners live nearby and are welcoming
and easy to deal with.

Easily sleeps five singles, maybe three couples plus two singles.
One thing to note: The whole place is essentially one single room
(plus the bathroom). The downstairs and loft are connected, the
kitchen is attached.

Fantastic living room with seating for 10 around a wonderful
wood-burning fireplace. We especially enjoyed a warm fire after a
long day of bourbon tours and tastings.

Full kitchen was well-stocked and up to the task for 5 guys.

Location well off the beaten path, but convenient to the bourbon
trail with a beautiful view of quiet Kentucky farm country.
