When you're ready for bed, you'll have your pick of 3 spacious bedrooms to rest your head. Climb under the covers of the queen-sized bed upstairs in the master bedroom with a private balcony. The second bedroom features a queen-sized bed and the third bedroom has 2 twin-sized beds, perfect for kids. The loft offers a comfortable futon for one more person.


-- THE AREA --

The property is located in the higher portion of the mountain offering supreme privacy during your stay and fabulous mountain views. A 4-wheel drive is highly recommended. You can hike right in the private development, where you will stumble upon old stone chimneys from houses a century old!

Ten minutes away, you'll find the Nada Tunnel entrance to the Red River Gorge and plenty of hiking trails, swimming, kayaking, fishing, bird-watching, and sight-seeing opportunities. 
On your way there, be sure to check out the Red River Gorge Scenic Byway!

Natural Bridge State Resort Park features a million-year-old sandstone arch reachable via a hike up the mountain or a leisurely ride on the sky lift. Stop by Mill Creek Lake for canoeing, kayaking, stand up paddleboarding, and fishing. 

A thrilling zip line ride through the trees awaits you when you visit Cliffview or try the family-friendly version in Frenchburg. For the rock climbers of the group, Torrent Falls Climbing Adventure and Kentucky Rock & Adventure Guides offer lessons and guided climbs nearby. 

Kayak through a 100-year-old limestone cave, play a round of miniature golf, and more when you check out Thrillsville in nearby Slade. Take the kids to the Reptile Zoo and see all of the scaly animals on display!

Saddle up at Whispering Valley Riding Trails for a unique horseback ride through the canopy forest with views of rock outcroppings, waterfalls, ponds, and more.
