  • Awesome Host!


    You wont find a better host than Mela! We didn't have much time to explore the area because we were there for Rock The Country Music Festival which was one of the best concerts we've seen. If you're looking for a place to relax in the hills of Kentucky, this is it.

    This property is gorgeous. The owners are so kind and hospitable. They went above and beyond anything I’ve ever seen. I will most definitely come again. Honestly, I can’t wait to. It was a wonderful, romantic getaway. I highly recommend staying here.

    We would first like to say thank you to Mela, the property owner, who has been absolutely amazing throughout our stay!!!

    If you are searching for a quiet get away for any purpose, this is an ideal location. The property is far enough from life that your nights are filled with star littered skies and the wonderful sounds of nature. The property has an available fire pit and a front porch that begs for relaxation. There are accessible trails for adventure on the property and enough open space for people of all ages to enjoy.

    The cabin itself has all of the amenities you could ask for. Mela has done a fantastic job making this property feel like a home away from home. Hot water, solid water pressure, clean, and cozy! AC works well to keep the cabin cool during the hottest months and naturally stays cool at night.

    All and all, I am very much looking forward for any reason to venture back. We had a very extended stay here due to work (nearly 2 and a half months) and will be extremely saddened to have to close the doors for the final time. It has been an absolute pleasure!
