-- 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. 

Drive along the Red River while passing deer, turkeys, trees, flowers, and outcroppings of rocks. Stop to view the amazing arches or cross the swinging bridge over Red River for a unique experience. 

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. Take a refreshing swim in the giant outdoor pool at Hemlock Lodge which also offers a kiddie pool and a picnic area. 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!

* NOTE: These cabins, while offering deluxe accommodations, are in a heavily wooded area. Occasionally, guests may experience weather conditions or power outages that are out of the host's control. The hosts will do all they can to assist but are not responsible for issues beyond their control.   Our owners make every effort to keep the hot tubs functioning perfectly, as they are the most requested amenity.  However, mechanical problems may occur that cannot be resolved quickly in this remote area and no refunds are made if this occurs, per the terms of our rental agreement.  Enjoy the many other amenities, beautiful surroundings and area adventures during your stay. Please contact us as soon as possible if your plans change and you must cancel or reschedule your stay.  We will work with you to re-schedule your dates if you have an unexpected change of plans. A $50 cancellation fee applies to all cancellations, and no refunds are allowed within 14 days or less of your booked check-in date. No refunds are permitted due to sudden inclement winter weather – but come anyway and get snowed in with us! We will accommodate late checkouts if roads are hazardous on your departure day!
