Property description

The cabin is part of a family retreat center which emphasizes family values. The Cabin is a converted tobacco grading shed at the entrance to an 80 acre farm bordering the extensive Berea College Forest. It is in the Pinnacles area of the Appalachian mountains where the mountains meet the Bluegrass.

Berea College maintains hiking trails on Indian Fort Mountain, including West Pinnacle and East Pinnacle. The farm includes a lake which was developed for flood control purposes and fishing is allowed for guests. Deer, geese and wild turkey are seen, as well as other birds and wildlife. The Cabin is easily accessible from Highway US 421, just across from Pilot Knob near Big Hill, KY and close to Berea and Richmond. Berea is the folk arts capital of Kentucky and many craft shops are nearby, as well as several craft fairs each year.

The Cabin is one large room and a bathroom with shower. It is set up for folks who want a simple place to get away for a while or a base for exploring the area crafts and sites. It may be used for larger groups in conjunction with a larger guest house (VRBO 229369) There's no phone in cabin but a landline is available at the larger guest house, or at the owner's house just up the drive. No TV. Most cell phones can get signal but some can't. Owner lives close on the same road for emergency service.

The queen size bed is very comfortable, and the sofa beds (single and 2 doubles) are firm enough for a good night's sleep as well. Gate House is ideal for a couple or family with one to three children. Basic kitchen supplies are provided. A/C and heat are included. A snug pleasant get-away.

The cabin is next to a large remodeled tobacco barn available for covered gatherings and activities. An outdoor campfire and picnic site is also provided. A new large guest house can add sleeping and gathering facilities for larger groups. See VRBO listing 229369.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Founders Bill and Rose Ramsay are pictured here in front of the family garden at Happiness Hills Farm. Bill and Rose are still living nearby, but have transferred ownership to their daughter, Jennifer Rose Escobar. She and her husband, Alfredo, their daughters Lydia and Isabel, and the family dog, Shadow, now live onsite and operate the Farm full time.

Why the Owner Chose Berea:
The retreat center is on an 80 acre farm just down the road from founders Bill and Rose Ramsay's house. Their 6 children and 22 grandchildren have roots in Berea so they purchased it as a way to continue a family legacy of close relationships and hospitality in the context of God's creation.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We enjoy being away from the hustle and bustle of today's life, but not so remote that convenience and communication are lost. We enjoy the beauty of the surrounding hills and streams and room for play, hikes, meditation and good fellowship.
