-- THE COTTAGE --

Bedroom1 : Queen Bed | Bedroom 2: Full Bed | Bedroom 3: 2 Twin Beds

Enjoy an isolated, wooded, yet completely modern escape with the added comfort of a highly-rated care team available for any concerns that might arise during your stay.

Appreciate the grandeur from the comfort of the A/C or heat, provided centrally.

The kitchen boasts seating for six and a fully equipped kitchen, including silverware, utensils, pots and pans, microwave, and a gas stove. Take your meals outside to one of the several seating spaces or the private fire pit.

This cottage is far away from the chaos, yet close enough to the greatest area attractions in Red River Gorge. You’re guaranteed to find peace, quiet, and a vacation you’ll never forget!


-- THE AREA --

While you’ll love relaxing at Grey Duck, you’ll still want to venture out and take advantage of this cabin’s amazing location. The famous Nada Tunnel entrance to the Red River Gorge is just 20 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! Also close by is the Red River Gorge Scenic Byway - be sure to check it out! 

Drive through to see the Red River, countless varieties of trees, flowers, plants, and outcroppings of rocks – or stop to hike or catch sight of deer, turkeys, and other wildlife. For a memorable experience, hike to the famous swinging bridge over the Red River, located upriver 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 and easy ride on the sky lift.  For water activities, like fishing, kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddleboarding, make your way to nearby Mill Creek Lake.

See the mountains from a whole new perspective when you go ziplining over the treetops for a challenging thrill in Cliffview, or drive through the Gorge to the family-friendly zipline spot in Frenchburg, where everyone from kids to grandpa can have a ball!
If you’re looking for even more thrills, visit Southeast Mountain Guides for world-famous rock climbing and rappelling! They offer guided climbs if you’re new to the activity.

Kids will love the Kentucky Reptile Zoo, which offers in-person venom extractions. Stop by Thrillsville to go kayaking through the 100-year-old limestone cave and putt-putt golf that kids and even the grandparents will enjoy.

If you love horseback riding, Whispering Valley Riding Trails is just down the road, 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 Thatcher BBQ, which offers many delicious BBQ options! Also head over to Hop's for ice cream made in house and monthly brewery and distillery takeovers.
