Property description

Built of cedar and stone, Lakewood is the only cabin among the 10 deluxe mountain homes in Cabins of Birch Hollow with an outside, wood-burning fireplace on the upper covered deck. It has 3 completely private bedrooms, as well as 2 large bathrooms – one with a Jacuzzi tub and a shower. The secluded setting overlooking a babbling brook and catch & release fishing pond, and the fisherman theme make this an all-time guest favorite. This cabin has a large living room w/gas fireplace, a wet bar and pool table downstairs in the rec area w/gas fireplace, a hot tub on the covered lower deck, and a porch swing, gas grill and large outside eating area on the covered upper deck. Upstairs bedrooms have queen-size beds, downstairs bedroom has a king-size bed, and a day bed in the downstairs rec room consists of 2 twin beds, increasing sleeping capacity from 6 to 8. A cedar tree standing atop the staircase, in the center of the cabin, is always a conversation piece. Huge laundry room with washer/dryer. Large screen TV, DVD/VCR. Central HVAC. DirecTV in this cabin provides reliable reception and you can order PPV at your expense. Lakewood has had DSL Internet for years but just switched to U-Verse. Cell phone booster. Land line provides voice-over with U-Verse, so even if cell service is intermittent, you have a reliable phone line. Cabin is secluded, as are all cabins in Birch Hollow. Nothing beats enjoying a glass of wine or some hot cocoa on the outside covered deck, hypnotized by a beautiful fire and listening to the sounds of the brook below - for hours!

Year Purchased: 2010

About: I'm a Florida gal who loves the mountains of Kentucky and North Carolina. I invested in my beautiful Lakewood cabin in 2010 to provide a wonderful getaway for myself and my family from time to time, and to share this gorgeous wilderness near the Red River Gorge with folks who come for a weekend getaway or a longer vacation! What a great hands-off investment for me, and I get to enjoy both the beaches of Florida and the Kentucky mountains during my retirement.

Why Red River Gorge:
I love all 10 cabins in Birch Hollow, as the are all custom-designed and beautifully decorated and located within minutes of Natural Bridge and the Red River Gorge in the Daniel Boone National Forest. I chose Lakewood because it had a strong rental history, had 3 private bedrooms, making it ideal for 3 couples or large families, and the covered deck with the spectacular stone wood-burning fireplace is the centerpiece for amazing gatherings and good times. It was one of the best decisions of my life.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Incredible outside wood-burning fireplace on huge covered deck allows for large gatherings even if it's snowing or raining - and the sound of the brook below, a glowing fire, the deck swing - it's just perfect! The tree in the living room around which the cabin is built is amazing! Guests love the antique pool table and wet bar in the rec room, leading to a great hot tub - and the sound of the brook makes the hot tub experience fabulous! Jacuzzi in the upstairs bath, large screen TV, and genuine "cabin feel" of Lakewood keep it rented every weekend!
