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.

Weekend get-away with family

  • 5 of 5

We visited Lillie's Cub Cabin the first weekend of July. The cabin was amazingly clean and very well furnished. The beds were nice and firm. Our two families (four adults and four kids) fit perfectly into the cabin. We enjoyed cooking, sitting on the front porch, nightly fires, day trips hiking and to the swimming hole, and restaurants Miguels & The Rockhouse. Sheila and Ken were very accommodating and attentive! We look forward to returning!

If you love Mother Nature, you can be entertained 24/7. We look forward to your visit. Welcome back - any time. Ken and Sheila

Stumbled upon Wildcat Hollow

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I came to the Gorge area without any planning. We stopped by Whitleton, all sites were reserved. Next stop Middle Fork, no attendant at the desk but appeared that all sites were reserved as well. We kept driving to find Ken and Sheila's land. They were extremely hospitable and to our luck no one else was on the property. We set up tent by a cabin under construction, had a fire pit and plenty of privacy. The land is gorgeous and Ken and Sheila could not be more helpful! I can't wait to come back and stay in one of the cabins.

Owner's Response: Welcome campers. This couple arrived a little stressed out. If you have camped with the threat of a storm moving in, you can sympathize with our guests. Yes, it did storm, but our campers were snugged down and happy to be in the Meadow at Wildcat Hollow. Thank you for the wonderful review. We look forward to your next visit. Reminder: You can visit often. Be safe. Be careful. God bless. Kenneth and Sheila Brown

Beautiful Cabin for a Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family (2 adults, 2 tweens) just got back from an amazing week in quite possibly the perfect cabin in the perfect location in the Red River Gorge area of the Daniel Boone National Forest. The hosts, Sheila & Ken, are extremely gracious and keep a well-maintained and impeccably clean cabin (with plenty of privacy). It is located next to the Rock House Cafe (great burgers) and near an incredible Ziplining tour (Red River Gorge Zipline), Miguel's pizza (didn't try it, but heard it was good), the Natural Bridge State Park (beautiful) and Torrent Falls Rock Climbing. It is within 20 minutes from our favorite activity of the trip...kayaking on the Red River (Red River Adventure) as well as hiking on numerous trails within the Daniel Boone Clifty Wilderness area. We cooked and grilled out every night, including a fire for smores (of course!). If you are looking for the above, rent this place with CONFIDENCE! Last note...my wife & I appreciated all of the special touches that make this cabin feel like "home".

Owner's Response: This lovely family spent a week hiking, zip lining, canoeing and enjoying each other's company. They hailed from Chicago and wanted a get-a-way from the city. Parents and teenagers were explorers seeking adventure this week. Ken and I appreciate the wonderful review. We say: Welcome. Welcome. Welcome. We hope to see you again. Be safe. Be careful. God Bless. We hope to see you again.

Beautiful, serene, CLEAN!!

  • 5 of 5

I just had a girl's weekend with 2 other friends. This rental property was even better than we originally thought! Sheila and Ken are just the best. Super friendly, hospitable and willing to do whatever to make sure our stay was top notch. I really can not say enough good things about our experience. The cabin itself was spotless, and absolutely perfect for our getaway. Plenty of loft space where the bunk beds are located to stretch out and hang out. We cooked most of our meals and appreciated the full kitchen VERY much. But even if you don't want to cook the cabin is located almost RIGHT next to the most amazing cafe with delicious food locally sourced. Really. You have to try it!! If you are looking for a cabin that is out of the way, but not remote, and super clean with all the amenities and close to hiking trails, THIS is the place. Thank you, Sheila & Ken, for a fantastic experience! We are already planning a return trip!

Girlfriend's excursion

  • 5 of 5

My daughter and 4 of her best friends spent 3-4 days over their college spring break at the cabin. They had a great time! The cabin was pretty and had everything they needed! The property was gorgeous. They only wish they had more time to see more of the property - it is huge. They got to the Natural Bridge, too. Wow! What a sight! They had fun just sightseeing and having a bonfire each night. With only 3 days and 4 nights, they saw a lot - but would have loved even longer to see more things! Ken and Sheila were wonderful! It was quiet, private, and safe! I have showed pictures to my friends from the girl's trip and they were amazed at how beautiful! Thank you Ken and Sheila for making it a great trip for the girls and safe (for us mom's!)

Owner's Response: Every once in a while Ken and I get the opportunity to re-visit the years when we wore the clothes of parents to college girls becoming independent young women. These girls jumped out of the car to register in and talked liked they knew us from long ago. So polite and mannerly. I know I am supposed to write a critique about Lillie's Cub Cabin, but let's look at our younger generation of women - they are great. We hope to see you again. Good luck with your careers. We urge you to put education first; education is the key to the standard of living you want for yourself and future family. And, remember: ALL IT TAKES IS ALL YOU'VE GOT. Respectfully, Kenneth and Sheila Brown

Happy Anniversary!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I went back to the gorge to celebrate our 25th wedding anniversary. Kenneth and Shelia are the most sweetest and nicest people you can meet. From the beginning they treat you like family. The cabin is very private, clean and comfortable. My husband truly enjoyed spending time with Kenneth looking over the property and gathering , cutting fire wood. We had a very lovely, relaxing time and will definitely plan to return!
