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 much fun! The kids loved the fire flies. Thanks, Kate!

Great working with Kate

  • 5 of 5

Unfortunately our plans changed last minute and we couldn't stay at the cabin, yet I still wanted to write this review because Kate was *very* accommodating. She worked with us for a fair % refund and her check was in my mailbox within a week. You couldn't ask for a more reasonable owner on this site to deal with.

We stayed here for 3 days and was very nice. Kate the owner was excellent, accommodating to all our needs. Even bought a new barbecue for us. Nice area and will come back if in the area.

casual elegance

  • 5 of 5

Loved staying at this romantic cabin. It is even larger than the photos show. It is an excellent location to enjoy the tranquility of the Kentucky river, yet a quick drive to excellent restaurants and sightseeing destinations.

Kate was a pleasure and she made sure everything went smoothly for our stay. Would definitely stay again.

Adorable Little Cabin

  • 5 of 5

I just love this little cabin. It is charming and immaculately clean and the accommodations were just perfect! Nice chocolate! It is just like the pictures show it. There are some stairs up the hill to get in, but not too hard to negotiate.

It is located in the country on a hillside above the KY River in an area where people seem to come to boat and fish. Not being a boater, I didn't explore that possibility. I just relaxed! It is an excellent place to decompress.

I was able to cook some of my own food, but if you explore a bit, there is a great fish place called Halls on down the road. Excellent fried fish and banana peppers! And the beer cheese is great too!

This is so much nicer and less expensive than staying in a generic hotel. And much more relaxing. I would come here again and bring friends! I am thinking it would be a lovely romantic get-away place. Kate is a Brit--love the accent--and she is charming and easy to get along with. Next time I am in need of peaceful down time, I will be back!
