About Kenneth and Sheila Brown

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.

Kenneth and Sheila Brown purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Kenneth and Sheila Brown chose Kentucky

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.

We had a wonderful time at Lillie's Cub Cabin. My family and I greatly appreciated Ken and Sheila's hospitality. Our children loved the roomy loft. We enjoyed the private wooded location as well. Overall, our experience was splendid and we would definitely stay at this property on our next trip to the area.

Lovely April weekend

  • 5 of 5

My husband, 2.5-year-old daughter, and I had a lovely long weekend at Lillie's Cub Cabin. It was our first time to Red River Gorge, and I was a little uncertain since I knew I'd chosen lodging that wasn't necessarily ideal for a toddler. But, we had no problems. The cabin was incredibly clean and well-stocked. My daughter had no problem sleeping in the bunk beds in the loft, and though her early bedtime made watching evening TV in the family room difficult, it just meant my husband and I spent more time out on the porch. When we did have down time during the day, she happily played on the large porch while we enjoyed the swing. Ken and Sheila were incredibly kind and welcoming, checking in to ensure we had everything we needed. I also appreciated how close it is to Natural Bridge State Park, though we had easy drives out to enjoy Rock Bridge Trail and the Sheltowee Trace too. Would love to return.

Absolutley Perfect! Everything we needed was right there

  • 5 of 5

I cant believe we lucked into such a clean and well kept cabin with literally everything we needed, firewood, paper and fresh water. enough dishes and utensils, TV and Wi-Fi for catching up on work late in the evening if needed. We were so secluded.. but also right off the main road. I felt very safe and comfortable with my 3 young children. I am so grateful and I feel blessed that we were so fortunate to get this experience. WE WILL BE BACK! thank you Lillie's Cub Cabin.

Lovely Cabin

  • 5 of 5

My family and I recently stayed in Lillies Cabin over the weekend. It's the most beautiful cabin I have ever seen. It's perfect in size! The owners Shelia and Kenneth are wonderful people, whom will help you with any needs. The cabin was very clean and well taken care of. I really felt at home while staying in the cabin. From the trails to hike, to the fire pit in the front it was amazing. I loved the swing on the front porch, very relaxing. I can't wait to go back, and I will def be staying there again!

The perfect place to stay when visiting Natural Bridge and Red River Gorge

  • 5 of 5

We took the family and a couple friends with us and had an amazing time at the cabin. Kenneth and Sheila are perfect hosts, around when you have questions or needs, but away when it isn't necessary. It is easy to locate and travel from. It is very clean and we loved the labeling done to everything so you know what goes where. Even though we couldn't have a campfire on this trip, due to very dry conditions in the area, we could grill and really appreciated having everything we needed on hand. The layout of the cabin is perfect with a bedroom downstairs and bunk beds upstairs. The knotty pine log cabin is exactly what you want when visiting an area like this. You can't go wrong here and we look forward to coming back again soon.

Owner's Response: The air was crisp and the leaves were falling when these guests arrived. Lillie's Cub Cabin welcomed this family and friends from Louisville, Kentucky, late in the evening with several lights on. They climbed at Torrent Climbing Adventure and explored the Sheltowee Trail; the air and water was a little too cool to swim in the waters of Red River and leap from the "jumping rock," but that adventure awaits until the next visit. Making lifetime memories in the Red River Gorge is less than 10 minutes away from Lillie's Cub Cabin. Welcome back, guests from Louisville. Ken and Sheila 11/14/16
