Keywords: Nature lover, the Cabin is surrounded by hemlock, pine, tulip and many other trees indigenous to Eastern Kentucky. You may hear the eerie sounds of the Baird Owl or the clear, crisp call of the Whippo-will. The Kentucky Natural Bridge State Park and the Red River Gorge is down the road for those who are obsessed with arches and cliff climbing. There is easy access to Natural Stone Arches sculpted by 70 million years of wind and water and towering cliffs encircling steep, forested slopes and narrow stream valley called the "Clifty Wilderness" by cliff climbers and naturalists. The hiking trails are Easy, Moderate and Strenuous covering hundreds of miles and maintained for hikers of all ages. Yet, if you are looking for the primitive, less traveled trails, you will not be disappointed. Note: The Gorge is a National Natural Landmark and is managed year round for public use and enjoyment.

We want to thank Kenneth and Sheila for their hospitality during our stay. The cabin is bigger than it looks and next time we plan to bring the kids. It rained a lot during our stay but we had a wonderful time in the cabin watching movies (thanks for the loaning those DVDs) and enjoying the fire pit when it wasn't raining. We ate our breakfast out on the back porch each morning and levitated toward the front porch swing in the evenings. This was just what we needed.

Owner response: Just goes to show that no matter what the weather or the season brings (sun, rain, sleet, snow), Lillie's Cub Cabin is the place to get away for peace and relaxation, or bird watching, hiking, walking, riding the zip line, cliff climbing, building a camp fire, easing into the mornings and drifting off into the evening. Lillie's Cub Cabin is 3 - 10 minutes away from Mother Nature's recreation and adventure. We look forward to your return visit. Kenneth and Sheila
Another Cheerleading Adventure!
Another Cheerleading Adventure!
The middle school cheerleading squad I coach had a sleepover at Lillie's Cub Cabin and each young lady left with memories that will last a life time! Ken and Sheila treated the girls wonderfully and made the trip special. Lillie's Cub Cabin looks amazing, inside and out. The cabin was large enough for all the girls and chaperones and was close enough that we could make a run for anything we needed though we didn't have to. The cabin was well stocked with cooking supplies, towels, sheets and pillows, etc. I appreciate the time Ken and Sheila spent making our trip wonderful (Sheila even watched a video of the cheerleading completion with the girls which they really enjoyed). Overall we had an excellent trip and I would recommend this property to anyone! The girls have even asked to return in the fall!

The cabin was very clean. It was in a very secluded area yet close to hiking trails and other features of the area. We would recommend this cabin to anyone interested in visiting the area.

Owner response: Lillie's Cub Cabin (vrbo.com/361686) is close to Natural Bridge State Park, Red River Gorge, Muir Valley and Daniel Boone Forrest is across the road. We "spring clean" Lillie's Cub Cabin prior to each new guest. We do not allow animals in this cabin because some of our guests and family have allergies. We now have Cowboy's Camp Cabin and Fiddle Fern Camp Cabin available that animals are allowed. These camp cabins have not made it to the advertising page, but ask us about them. Thank you, preferred guests from Indiana, we look forward to your return visit. Happy Anniversary.

Family Easter Retreat
Family Easter Retreat
Our family enjoys getting away over Easter weekend and retreating to nature. We were excited to be near Natural Bridge and Red River Gorge for hiking and relaxing. We were stunned to find the property also had a beautiful creek running through it, ample hiking, and Shelia brought by buckets to do some rock collecting. If we get the chance we are sure to return to the area and stay here again. Don't miss Miguel's Pizza - interesting people and good pizza and my daughter fell in love with the local drink - Ale 8. Shelia and Ken are so sweet and really made our stay nice. The cabin is comfortable, clean, and the pictures don't do it justice. Make sure to shop before you get there - not a lot in town near the cabin and Shelia informed us of that before our arrival. Such a pretty cabin on such a pretty property, you just can't go wrong! If you love Ale 8 too - make sure to stock up - it is a local beverage and we saw some rock climbers heading home on the highway at the same time with their car stocked with the stuff in cases!

Best place to stay to get away and Very well taken care of
Best place to stay to get away and Very well taken care of
It was a great place to stay, very cosey and very very clean. It was one of the most reasonably priced places to stay. Not only well priced but I was offered the cabin Thursday night and Sunday night FOR FREE!!!! They did not have anyone checking in those nights so they offered it to us. That is customer service at its very best. They made sure we had everything and anything we needed during our stay. There is nothing wrong about this place.... On a side note because we are city folk, it would have been perfect if they had a television in the master bedroom and a DVD player. (This is our prefrences and may not be everyones needs) Checking out they did tell us they had a dvd player for us to use if we had asked, we just figured if they had one it would be there already so we didnt know to ask...(no big deal we bought one and returned it to walmart when we got home) lol They asked us if there was any feedback that we could give them, because they wanted to make sure that we were satisfied with our stay when we checked out. Which goes to show they care about there customers and always strive to do as best as they can when accomodating guests. YOU CAN'T BEAT CUSTOMER SERVICE! We will be back in the spring and/or summer to stay again!

Owner response: No. 1: Even though we are in the cabin-rental business, we treat those who stay with us as guests. No 2: We love this Area of Kentucky and hope that our guests see and experience Mother Nature here on our property and at Natural Bridge and Red River Gorge. No. 3: Thank you for the wonderful review. We look forward to seeing you again. And, we have a list of movies on hand that you can use during your stay at Wildcat Hollow, Lillie's Cub Cabin. No. 4: We will have a not-too-fancy camper's cabin available in the April - May timeframe that will allow a more rustic stay. Again, thank you for choosing Lillie's Cub Cabin. Be safe. Be careful. God bless. Kenneth and Sheila Brown
Our Heavenly Vacation
Our Heavenly Vacation
Our stay at the Lillie Cub Cabin in April of 2012 was a wonderful respite for our family of six. The cabin was immaculately clean and private, the loft accommodations were a dream-come-true for the children, the downstairs bedroom for the parents was very much appreciated, and the front porch and circular staircase were idyllic. Interspersed with day trips to Natural Bridge, Carter Caves, Nada Tunnel, and the Buffalo Trace Distillery, our children could be found with their galoshes on wading in the creek and walking with the dogs over this amazing Appalachian wonderland. Our children were welcomed by the proprietors who were immensely kind and helpful, and who went above and beyond the call of duty to make our stay enjoyable and relaxing. (They love families.) On the way out per their suggestion we hit the last horse race of the year at Keeneland, which was the perfect Kentucky horse experience at just the right family price. (A story in itself!) Our four day stay was the Appalachian fix we needed without having to travel any further south with a carful of kids.

My experience here was so good that I can say from now on I will either be in this cottage, or planning my next trip to this cottage. The local scenery is spectacular, and with the Mountain Parkway so close, you have easy access to Winchester, Lexington, etc. First of all, the cottage is SPOTLESS. It is possibly the cleanest place I've ever stayed in. It is in such good shape, it looks brand new--Sheila and Ken keep it up so well that you will think you are the first person who ever stayed here. It's very cozy and totally modern with all the conveniences and has many special little touches. In truth, it's like a fairy tale cottage in a beautiful setting. Second, and most importantly, Sheila and Ken are the best parts of the cabin--nothing is too much trouble. They are professional, extremely friendly and are just really good people. They were both so helpful. I spent probably the best day I've had in ages in Red River Gorge with Sheila--picnic and all. Even their pets are loveable!! They value and respect your privacy, but are quickly on hand if you need anything. I just can't say enough about how great this place is. Ken and Sheila--thank you, thank you, thank you. I'll see you next time.

About the owner: We enjoy living in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. Although we are not totally isolated, traffic jams are rare. The air seems fresher and clearer. We enjoy traveling on the 2-lane blacktop road (KY 11) lined with trees and wildflowers; a couple times a wildcat has leaped across our route and scampered up the roadside hillside; too fast to get a picture, but a memory was created. One early morning, Ken rounded a corner about a mile from here and a black bear was running ahead of him in his lane. Ken was braking and the car was almost sitting on the bear's butt when finally, it veered off into the forest. In the winter, we feed the wild turkeys. Turkeys have a hard time surviving bad winters. There are days that we are delighted with things that happen in our environment; this is a good thing for us; to be delighted.
Why the Owner Chose Natural Bridge:
Sheila's Tale: My mother and I would ride a taxi to Natural Bridge and spend the day. She packed our food in a red plastic carrying cooler with "Coke" written on the front. Home canned green beans, and fried potatoes, corn bread fritters wrapped in a dish cloth, a mason jar of water and a bunch of green onions were our food for the day. We hiked the trails and swam in a lake with turtles and fishes nibbling on our toes. The taxi would pick us up in the evening and take us home to Irvine, KY, 30 miles away. I learned to appreciate trees and wildflowers and the beauty of nature in the Natural Bridge, Red River Gorge and Danial Boone Forest. My heart has been softened to nature's beauty throughout the world because of my visits to this area. And, I brought my daughters, their friends and my Girl Scout Troop here. We camped out and did all the things that I did in childhood and more. Further, I brought my grandchildren here. Where else could I retire but to the place that heart-felt memories of my mother teaching me about nature and the natural world and, me, in turn, teaching my daughters and grandchildren to cook a meal on an open fire; and further, helping young girls experience the self awareness that almost everyone has bad hair in the morning. My heart is here because what I value is here: all kinds of natural beauty. I am here and I welcome you to visit us at Kentucky Wildflowers, LLC. You're gonna love it. Ken's Tale: It has been my life-long dream to live in a log cabin on the hill in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky.
The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
We have 150 acres to hike. There are trails cleared for convenience and enjoyment; the trees and flowers can be enjoyed during nature walks. Also, you can invent your own trail if you want to get off the beaten path. Best of all, a creek runs through this property; the creek has never been completely dry. Some of the holes are deep enough to get really wet. The property is called Wildcat Hollow and is surrounded by cliffs. A cool breeze blows all summer down the hollow across the creek. At night, birds get tuned up and sing. You can see the stars when the clouds are gone and it is so dark at night.
