‘Lakewood’ is a deluxe mountain home, custom designed and made of cedar and stone. Situated on a 300-acre private development, this cabin offers a secluded setting overlooking a babbling brook and a catch-and-release pond.

The fisherman theme and decor, antique pool table and the upper deck with a stone wood-burning fireplace make this home an all-time guest favorite.

On the main level, the large, open floor plan combines the living room, kitchen, and dining area. Vaulted ceilings open up the space even more, allowing you to move freely from room to room while chatting with your travel companions.

Two queen beds and a full bathroom featuring a Jacuzzi tub inset in a bay window, plus a separate shower are also on the main level for your convenience.

A stone gas fireplace, comfy couches, a large flat-screen cable TV and DVD player make the living area the perfect spot to lounge around during your downtime. While you’re relaxing, the chef of the group can prepare a delicious meal in the fully equipped kitchen and serve it in one quick swoop at the dining table.

Downstairs, the rec room has another gas fireplace, full-sized antique pool table, wet bar and a huge flat-screen TV for your entertainment. The rec room opens up onto the patio, where there is an outdoor hot tub and shuffleboard table.

A huge laundry room with ironing board and iron is also located downstairs, along with the master suite and full bathroom with shower.

Back upstairs, you’re sure to love the huge, covered deck with patio table and chairs, a gas grill, porch swing and a wood-burning stone fireplace. Here, you can relax next to the fire, be lulled by the soothing sound of the creek below, and sip your favorite beverage while keeping your eyes peeled for woodpeckers, wild turkeys, deer, chipmunks, a resident owl, and a variety of birds among the trees and plants.

After each adventurous day, you’ll look forward to retreating to one of the 3 private bedrooms for a good night’s rest. The master bedroom features a king-sized bed, while the other 2 bedrooms offer queen-sized beds. Additional sleeping is available on the daybed with twin-sized trundle bed in the downstairs rec room.


This beautiful cabin is situated in the lower portion of a mountain area, surrounded by a variety of trees for ultimate privacy. From the cabin, you’ll be able to see a creek flowing down from the higher part of the mountains, past the cabin and into a catch-and-release pond with a dock. Endless hiking and rock climbing opportunities can be found in the surrounding area. With so much tranquility surrounding this home, you’re sure to feel rejuvenated by the end of your vacation.

While you’ll love relaxing at the cozy mountain cabin, you’ll still want to venture out and take advantage of this home’s amazing location.

The famous Nada Tunnel entrance to the Red River Gorge is just 10 minutes away from the property, so be sure to head that way for countless hiking trails, rock climbing, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, sight-seeing, bird-watching and numerous opportunities for photography!

Drive through to see the Red River, countless varieties of trees, flowers, plants, and outcroppings of rocks – or stop to hike or catch site of deer, turkeys and other wildlife. For a memorable experience, hike to the famous swinging bridge over the Red River, located up river from the Jump Rock and Swimming Hole.

Natural Bridge State Resort Park features the Natural Bridge, a million-years-old sandstone arch, which is accessible by hiking up and down the huge mountain or by taking a slow, easy ride on the sky lift. Additionally, at the Hemlock Lodge at Natural Bridge, there is an enormous outdoor pool, kiddie pool and picnic area that everyone is sure to enjoy from Memorial Day to Labor Day. For water activities, like fishing, kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddle boarding, make your way to nearby Mill Creek Lake.

See the mountains from a whole new perspective when you go zip lining over the tree tops for a challenging thrill in Cliffview, or drive through the Gorge to the family-friendly zip line spot in Frenchburg, where everyone from kids to grandpa can have a ball!

If you’re looking for even more thrills, visit Torrett Falls Climbing Adventure or Kentucky Rock & Adventure Guides for world-famous rock climbing and rappelling! Both offer lessons and guided climbs.

Kids will love the Reptile Zoo, while teenagers will jump on the opportunity to visit the Thrillsville obstacle course in nearby Slade. New to Thrillsville in 2017 is kayaking through the 100-year-old limestone cave, and a putt putt golf that kids and even the grandparents will enjoy.

If you love horseback riding, Whispering Valley Riding Trails are just 35 minutes away in Beattysville, where you will see waterfalls, ponds, rock outcroppings as you ride under the canopy of trees. The views are sure to be amazing!

Great restaurants are also nearby! Be sure to check out Miguel’s Pizza, a classic restaurant that has been around for 30 years, Red River Rockhouse, a newer restaurant owned by young rock climbers, and Sky Bridge Station, which features gourmet hot dogs and beer on tap.

Debbie Drake ""

We rented the Lakewood a couple of weeks ago. We were so excited to get there and I had gone on line about a thousand times to look at the pictures,anxiously awaiting our trip and hoping it was as nice in person as it looked on the web! Well our first experience was checking in, Tonya was so welcoming and helpful,I immediately felt a...t ease, the drive to the cabin was beautiful despite the rain. The location was perfect, beautiful trees rushing creek, seclusion, it was paradise, when I opened the cabin door it took my breath away, there is no way pictures could ever do it justice. It was absolutely perfect. 100 times more awesome then I had expected. We had perfect weather the whole week, the local town was friendly and easy to get to. We did the natural bridge and the gorge and loved the skylift ride. We took our 13 year old son and my 91 year old Mom and both had a great time, my Mom said it was the prettiest place she had seen in her whole 91 years.

Thanks to Cabins of Birch Hollow and to the wonderful owner, who we met and was also very kind and eager to make our stay perfect. We will see you again,soon! See More

Beautiful Area. Home in need of a few improvements

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I, along with 4 friends, recently returned from staying at Lakewood Cabin for a long weekend. It was our first time to the Red River Gorge area, and the location was beautiful. The cabins are situated within the neighborhood in such a way that they each have a nice amount of privacy. They are within close proximity to the major Red River Gorge sights. We enjoyed a hike and a trip to the Natural Bridge State Park. It is also within an hour or so from the beginning of the Bourbon Trail, which we also took time to visit one day.

The directions for arriving to the property, and for check-in, were excellent. Clear and concise. Communication with Dale and Katy were also excellent, and responses were fast! The home was stocked with nice pots and pans which we enjoyed using as we cooked our dinners each night. The home was clean and ready for our arrival.

Some of what drew our group to this area, and this home, was the location and also the amenities. The outdoor wood burning fireplace was a draw, and with nicer weather, the upper deck would be a great place for eating outside as the house has a very nice patio set. We wanted a house with a hot tub and with a pool table. The hot tub got a lot of use during our visit, and the pool table was in excellent condition! We really looked forward to playing shuffleboard, however the shuffleboard table had no sand in it, and all the pucks were in very bad shape, rusted and warped from weather, as was the wood table itself.

Though our stay was good overall, we did leave noting a few things. The upstairs had two bedrooms, one of which was very difficult to regulate the temperature of. It was freezing while the rest of the house was very warm. We needed to add 2 blankets over the comforter just to stay warm during the night. The bathroom upstairs is in need of a few repairs, such as the glass shower door hanging poorly on the hinges causing a lot of noise, the trim around the shower being in bad shape from water damage. Downstairs, the lighting over the pool table did not work at all. With a little TLC, this home could be more inviting if we were to come back to the area again. We greatly appreciated Dale's and Katy's prompt response to questions, and doing their best to resolve issues quickly when they did arise.

Awesome Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family stayed at the Lakewood cabin over Memorial weekend and enjoyed every minute. The cabin was everything we anticipated and the outdoor fireplace was a big hit. The babbling brook was a pleasant bonus and the hiking trail was so peaceful. I would highly recommend this cabin and hope to go back one day.
