Stearns cabin description

This cabin is a unique place. It is available seasonally from late April 1-October 30. The setting is so that it backs up to two National Forest properties: The Big South Fork National River and Recreation Area and The Daniel Boone National Forest. The 1200 square foot cabin is the last property before entering Big South Fork Park . The cabin is available for rental SEASONALLY from April to November.

The view from the large,covered back porch is mountains and hills as far as the eye can see. The cabin is nicely equipped for 7 persons to stay in beds very comfortably. There is floor space for 4 more with 2 additional airbeds. The cabin has a covered front porch with a swing and a huge back deck overlooking the gorgeous view with lots of patio furniture and a grill for your enjoyment. Half of the back deck is covered.

There are 2 bedrooms. The one downstairs has a queen bed and the other is a huge lofted room with a memory foam king, a double bed and a twin bed in it, as well as lots of additional floor space in the lofted area for sleeping space (2 air mattresses are available for use). Full bathroom is upstairs off the lofted room. Downstairs in the large vaulted ceiling great room there is a sofa and love seat as well as other comfy seating.

There is a table for eating on the back deck. There are 2 kitchen tables inside - one in the dining area between kitchen and great room and one in the great room. CD player, TV and DVD player, with cable TV hookup, washer and dryer make this cabin very comfortable and accommodating.

Nearby in front of the cabin is a 4 plank oak with gates near the cabin and also directly off the road. There is accessibility off the road and also via a gravel driveway that comes right up to the side of the cabin. This is a wonderful place to come and be right in the face of thousands of acres of some of nature's finest playground.

The South Fork Branch of the Cumberland River is about 1.25 mile hike away boasting white water seasonally. Cabin is about 1/2 mile before Big South Fork Park Entrance on Hwy 742 (aka, Mine 18 Road) Historic Blue Heron Mining Camp Park boundary is 1 mile away and Blue Heron Campground is close by. This cabin is well loved and we enjoy sharing it with people.

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: Jamie and Lisa bought the property originally as a base for horseback riding but health problems have ended that activity. The cabin is a great getaway and we enjoy sharing with others. Nothing fancy but very comfortable and in such a unique setting where you can be a few miles from a grocery but feel like you are hundreds of miles away

                  Why the Owner Chose Stearns:
                  Proximity to the forest and hiking, wildlife, peaceful setting, perfect getaway .

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Quiet, safe, comfortable, beautiful surroundings
