About Mary Gonda-Chandler

My husband and I bought the land for Chandler Ridge in 2003, we began building that fall and by Spring 2005 the lodge was open for guests. We live within 15 miles of the cabin and love spending time there. We love to travel and have been very blessed to see some of the world so far. I have always wanted a log cabin of my own, but never dreamed of building a retreat facility. I have been in the hospitality business in some form since I was 18 so hosting guests from all over the world was not a big step for me. My husband is a great do it all kinda guy and we have built several things together. By far, the cabin is our favorite and we hope you enjoy it too.

Mary Gonda-Chandler purchased this cabin in 2003

Gracious Host = Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

A large group of us stayed here visiting Lexington on one day and Louisville the next. It is a great location.

Unfortunately during our stay the kids damaged the pool table - again I am so sorry.

Barbara was so kind when I talked with her via phone. I was not aware of the damage until she told me.

I would love to return for a stay. It is a lovely property and the location is wonderful.

Thank you for being so accommodating.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay. Fortunately, the pool table was able to be repaired by my caretaker and all is well. Looking forward to having you back in the future. Mary

Family Fun Weekend

  • 5 of 5

My whole family, 25 in total, stayed at the cabin over the weekend and we could not have been happier. Great place, fully loaded with all kinds of supplies and fun activities both indoors and out. The ages in our family range from 9 months to 82 years old and every single person had fun. Cabin has everything you need, is beautiful and the décor is very nice. Cabin is even more beautiful and spacious than the online pictures show. Owners are very nice and helpful too. We can't wait to go back.

Country Chic Wedding

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had our wedding here and loved it!! All our guests raved about the cabin and location! It was absolutely beautiful and we were very pleased with every aspect! We received our wedding photos recently and LOVED the background of nature! I see Chandler Ridge being in many memories in the coming years! I do believe the best part of our stay was my dog and my parents dog jumping in the pond out back! This is a great space for any get together and recommend to everyone!

LWC Friends

  • 5 of 5

Chandler Ridge is fantastic. I was part of a college friend get away. This is my second year with my friends. The Chandler Ridge house is very spacious. It's fully furnished from the living room area to the game room with air hockey, foosball poker table and pool table to the kitchen. Satellite cable, two gas fireplaces and a bar on the bottom floor. I could go on and on. I look forward to many years with my friends at Chandler Ridge. It's perfect!

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

We have had our college reunion here the last 3 years and it's a wonderful place to stay where we can be under one roof.

We love that it's big enough that we can go different directions for small groups, yet the great room is big enough for us to eat together and play games. We love the game room in the basement - brings back memories of college days. We love to be able to sit outside on the porch. We especially enjoy having a campfire at night. This place meets our every need. It's especially great that all we have to bring is food and clothes. All linens, appliances and kitchen items are furnished. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We look forward to many more years together.

Youth Bible Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I am a youth pastor who has taken youth on over 10 annual Bible retreats to cabins all over KY, TN, and Georgia. This is one of my favorite cabins. It is large, well laid out and has tons of sleeping space when you consider the fold out beds. It is in a quiet secluded area and was perfect for our retreat. It is by far the most reasonably priced cabin we have ever stayed in. The caretakers, which live near the cabin were wonderful. I plan on making this an annual event for our youth. Thx for sharing your cabin with us
