Overview

About the property

Secluded Forest Retreat, 3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath, Sleeps 10,

Rock Haven is a beautiful and modern multilevel cabin built in front of a limestone cliff that towers above it, located in a secluded forest valley adjacent to Natural Bridge State Park and near the Red River Gorge. It easily accommodates 10 persons. Come and feel the excitement of being in the middle of the forest, enjoy the beautifully designed wood interior, and relax in this comfortable vacation home, that is supplied with Wifi and a landline phone. If you are interested in staying at Rock Haven, we prefer you click on "Send a message" instead of clicking on "Request to Book."

The lovely spaces in Rock Haven include four bedrooms including one on the middle level, one on the lower level with two beds, and the two loft bedrooms (both without doors) , 2 ½ baths, a whirlpool room with a view of the rocky cliff, a fully equipped and roomy kitchen, an inviting spacious living room, a fantastic sun-room to relax in, a front deck surrounded by the tall trees, and a back deck almost within arm’s reach of the cliff. All linens, blankets, and towels, and some basic kitchen items such as spices and napkins are provided so all you need to bring is food, drink and personal items to have the perfect stay. The deep woods and the cliff-side location moderate the summer heat and winter cold and ensure that only the sounds of nature are heard. In addition, the location is close to the area's attractions--the many arches, hiking trails, scenic drives, and a surprising variety of restaurants.

Cell phone service is available--best via Verizon, spotty for other providers unless one goes to the top of the hill. There is Wifi, a TV and a DVD player, but no cable service. Feel free to stream or bring your own movies for family entertainment. You can choose not to use the Wifi, and maybe discover, or experience again, how rewarding it is to quietly sit on the deck and to enjoy the sounds of the forest both in early morning and in the evenings. This is a wonderful way to experience nature. You can see more pictures at http://picasaweb.google.com/arvinvos/RockHaven.

About Corrie Vos

My husband, Arvin Vos, and I were living in Bowling Green, KY, where he taught philosophy and I practiced psychology, when together with our daughter we bought Rock Haven. We have had marvelous family times there with our five children and grandchildren. Now that we have retired to Michigan and our children have established themselves in places across the country, we especially enjoy spending time together at Rock Haven.

Corrie Vos purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Corrie Vos chose Natural Bridge

The moment we saw Rock Haven, built almost against a towering cliff, surrounded by forest, built of local lumber inside and out, we knew we wanted to own it. Over the years we have added several rooms, modified the most rustic features to increase comfort and convenience, and built a beautiful oak spiral stairs leading up to the upper level. We are happy to share it with our guests, which defrays some of our costs, and provides some work for our housekeepers.

What makes this cabin unique

We love our beautiful and comfy cabin, the rock climbing opportunities, the cycling in the Gorge, eating at restaurants like Miguel's pizza and Rock House, and the fantastic scenery and hiking, but what we love most is that it is a quiet and peaceful place to enjoy being in nature.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Rock Haven Cabin for 2 nights for a mini-honeymoon and we couldn't have been happier we chose Rock Haven! I think the most impressive part about the cabin, and there are many, was the cleanliness. Every nook and cranny was spic and span, including the bannisters and ceilings...not a single cobweb! - when staying in other cabins we always noticed this to be a particular problem with cabin rentals. As others have mentioned, the cabin is close to Natural Bridge, Red River Gorge and eateries/shops for the essentials, yet very secluded. The cabin is very large and would comfortably sleep 10. The kitchen is well stocked and the beds and pillows are fresh and cozy. We loved all of the windows letting in natural light.

Corrie was a dream to deal with! My new husband and I ran into snag right before our visit that could've made our trip impossible but she was extremely accommodating so that we didn't have to cancel. We just couldn't be pleased with the entire vacation!

Thank you Corrie for sharing your wonderful cabin with us!

Wonderful long weekend with the family!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came here for a long weekend to relax and hike. This place was perfect for us! We had 3 couples, 2 dogs, and plenty of space for more! We were a 5 minute drive to Natural Bridge and around 20-30 minute drive to other trail heads (only 10 miles away, but the back rounds made it longer). The house was quiet and very clean! It was nice to have internet so we could play music while playing games out on the porch (cell phone service not great, but that was the point to get away from the craziness of everyday life). The cabin seemed well maintained and had everything we needed to cook and grill! We will definitely be coming back.

Owner's Response: I was surprised to learn that this renter was dissatisfied. I have let her know that she needs to contact Homeaway to get insurance reimbursement for the day that she could not be at the cabin. I always send all the information needed well ahead of time. Our excellent cleaning service may have missed a cobweb, but that would be unusual. I hope this renter has a better experience next time she comes to the Gorge.

Beautiful setting!

  • 5 of 5

Fantastic all around! I stayed with my family - 4 adults and 1 teenager - and we all felt comfortable. Everything is exactly as advertised! We were attending a wedding 9 miles away and found this location perfect. I was baking the cake and the kitchen with the open pantry was perfect for all my supplies. The kitchen table was great spot to set up for games. It was a quiet location that felt very private.

Tip: Read the directions the owner posts about how to get there - and write them down. Our cell service did not work once we got to Slade so we did not have GPS. The directions are very clear. (It would be great if the Street signs were more prominent because I missed the Glencairen road a couple times). Once you have been there once though, it is to find.

I would come back again and I would recommend this property!

Beautiful and spacious cabin, close to the South crags and Miguel's! Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

It was a very positive experience booking and communicating with our host, Corrie. Directions provided to the cabin and grocery stores were really helpful. The cabin was spotless upon arrival, all amenities were fantastic, plenty of beds, blankets, and towels, and full kitchen that was very useful for everyone to prep meals. Incredibly comfortable and spacious! Perfect location! Within a 15min drive to the crags in the RRG South, 10min to Miguel's, and 5min to Red River Rockhouse... Would book here again! Thank you so much!

Rock Haven is located in Rocky Hollow, a valley on Mill Creek upstream from Mill Lake. It is just off the Glen Cairn-Rogers road, between Highways 11 and 15. Natural Bridge State Park is a five minute drive away. The Mountain Parkway is about five miles away is. Going in the other direction is Muir Valley about 8 miles away. In addition to being close to many of the best known rock climbing sites in the area, there are numerous hiking trails in the Red River Gorge and at Natural Bridge State Park. In the summer on Friday and Saturday evenings there is folk dancing near the Park's visitor center. There is a public swimming area at the park, open in season. Most of all, the valley location of the cabin is a quiet wooded retreat where it is possible to reconnect with nature, experience the rhythms of the day and evening. In summer, the trees around the cabin provide the comfort of shade, especially on the deck, and in late fall and early spring the cliff protects from the wind, and so the deck is a lovely place to sit in the sun. Nearby there is opportunity to enjoy a Zipline at Cliffwood and also a Via Ferrata. For those interested in rock climbing, Muir Valley and the many other sites that the area is famous for, are within a short drive. If you enjoy sight-seeing, then taking the loop drive from Pine Ridge through the Gorge to Slade is a wonderful introduction to the area. Even better is cycling the same route.
