"My adult daughter and I stayed at the cabin for a long weekend father-daughter trip.
It was a short drive to both Natural Bridge and Red River Gorge for hiking, which we did plenty of.
There is not much for supplies nearby, but hitting the next exit on the interstate got us groceries and supplies.
The cabin seemed a bit small at first, but then it seemed just right. Back deck was nice for reading and listening to the rain and inside it was surprisingly warm and cozy. Sleep came easy.
One thing that took us a while to catch was that the heater in the living room has a switch on the top/back of the right side of it, that turns it on. Once it turns on, it doesn't need to be on for long. It puts out plenty of heat and the cabin holds it well.
We cooked several meals in the kitchen and had no trouble with what looked liked an old stove. We cooked both on the stove and in the oven and the food came out just fine. There is plenty of china and silverware. The small "dorm" sized fridge was the right size.
The bathroomn is well done and interesting. Gave me some ideas for my own bathroom. Shower is plenty big and the is ample hot water and water pressure.
I ended up folding out the couch for sleeping, though if more than one bed is needed, you might conside a blow-up one.
Since there is no TV, which is a good thing, we ended up listening to the iPod, which was hooked in to a small amp, all weekend. There was a really good selection of good music on it. Some 6,000 songs.
Just after we turned on to KY 77, we stopped for a load of firewood. There were 3 men selling dry wood and they were complete gentlemen. Did a nice job of loading wood in to the car and making sure we had ample kindling.
Only issue was all the rain, which did not stop us from hiking, but did keep us from being able to make "Hobos" in the fire. Ended up making them in the oven, but it was not quite as much fun.
Overall it was a great trip and we hated to leave. We got just what he hoped for out of the cabin."

"We really enjoyed the weekend at the Sunset Cottage. I was looking for a relaxing time and found it! Took the canoe out a few times, enjoyed cooking on the gas grill and really enjoyed hanging out on the deck. The second week in May was unusually warm, so we swam in the water too. We watched an eagle, a blue Heron and lots of fish. Skip was very accommodating and the plates, good cookware and sharp knives really felt like I was at home. The movie selection was expansive and a good time was had by all. Thanks Skip!"

"First off, the photos shown do not do jutice to the amount space or view this property offers. Very Clean, Comfortable, and Charming. We really enjoyed the wrap around deck that faces the Ohio River-and the ceiling fans on the deck really kept the air flowing which is a plus. Also, the privacy is noce in that from the street, one cannot see around to where we gathered and enjoyed the deck and River view. The close proximity to what Owensboro has done with its downtown could not be better. Obviously, millions have been spent re-vamping this towns river front downtown area; which we enjoyed a great deal especially being so close to this River-House. The owner was very easy to work with, answering my many questions before we arrived and she refunded our deposit promptly-which is always appreciated. Next we are in Owensboro we look forward to booking again ."
