    We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The fall colors and waterfall were beautiful from the amazing screened in porch, two upstairs balconies and the twinkle lights that wrapped the property. It was very clean and had the perfect blend of home and hotel. There was a fire pit, pizza oven and cornhole that we didn't use but we had fun watching movies, grilling, playing card games and enjoying the nearby Red River Gorge. It was easy to find and very easy to check in. There were helpful instructions on everything. The steep stairs and windy roads took some getting used to but it wouldn't deter me from staying here again.

  • Great Kentucky vacation


    Cottage was very well set-up for the perfect relaxing experience. Cottage was also close to great attractions including Natural Bridge State Park and a great day of renting a pontoon boat on a Cave Run Lake. Property owner was accessible via text communication to make sure our stay was a great experience. A hone away from home!

  • Perfect for our family of 4!


    Really enjoyed our stay at Rustic Landing! There were a lot of antiques and thoughtful touches throughout. Just bring your food and drinks and everything else is provided. The wraparound porch, fire pit, and especially the back deck were great! Fully fenced in yard if you are bringing a dog. Highly recommend!

  • Not as advertised beware of cameras


    Clean home BUT per hand written note all cameras are turned off at check in. Well that is sooooo not the case as I was called by property management who stated they saw blank on the cameras day 2. So there it is cameras where NOT turned off. So if you don’t want privacy and want your movements monitored. Then this is the one for you.

    Hi Charlotte, we always appreciate hearing from our guests, but the homeowner would like to take a moment to clarify a few things raised in your review: We have exterior-facing security cameras on property for the safety of our guests. These are disclosed in the listing and are always turned off after check-in as we respect the privacy of our travelers. Our neighbor reported to us that you had exceeded the maximum occupancy of pets during your stay, so you were reached out to in order to pay an additional pet fee. Thanks for taking the time to leave your review!

  • Restful and Refreshing
