Peaceful

  • 5 of 5

I truly enjoyed my stay in the little cabin. It was so peaceful and the owner worked to meet all my needs. It is a very quiet area not to far away from town. I was in Lexington for the three day event and it seemed that anywhere I wanted to go was 20 minute or less drive. I found that very good. The evenings were so peaceful to sit in the log sitting room with a glass of wine. I would consider staying there again on my next visit.

Perfect in every way!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had such a wonderful late fall stay in this olde worlde cabin. We had everything we needed for our long weekend retreat. The fresh flowers and other little touches made it a special place for us. We were blessed with mild weather so enjoyed morning coffee on the patio listening to the birds and appreciating the peace and quiet. Only 20 minutes from downtown Lexington, it was a perfect get away but not too far away! We look forward to visiting again.

Enjoyed our stay very much!

  • 5 of 5

The little cabin is very charming and comfortable. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Kate was a wonderful hostess and we very much appreciated how easy she made it. There were fresh flowers in 3 rooms, which was a special touch of kindness. We loved having a glass of wine sitting on the patio and walking down the country road to enjoy the river and the cliffs behind the cabin. Can't wait to go back again.

Exactly as described.

  • 4 of 5

This property is exactly as described. A secluded rustic cabin type house. Kate was very nice in arranging things and I was surprised to find that it has everything you need. Just be sure to stop and get groceries before you arrive. It's very quiet and the heat works very well.

Relaxing stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cabin for two weeks in late July and early August for an event at the Kentucky Horse Park and it was perfect for us. We brought our two year old golden retriever and needed a place that was pet friendly.

Kate was very accommodating...fresh flowers were placed in the kitchen and bedroom. There was a problem with the wi fi and Kate was very prompt at getting it taken care of.

The patio was great...we had an outdoor cookout with our barn friends...so much fun! The kids loved the fire flies. Thanks, Kate!
