"Perfect location - walking distance to morning pastry shop, stores and trolly that will take you to most places in Lexington. Charming home and very clean. The only thing my party wished for were larger and less squeaky beds. King and queen beds are preferable over queen and double."

"Owners john and Kim turned our trip into a vacation. We planned out trip in under a week and they were so accommodating and communicative. They met us late to check in and then brought us the pontoon boat we rented from them filled up with gas early the next morning so we could get on the lake right at 9. Yes they have a pontoon and kyakas you can rent from them cheaper than the marina! So convenient!! Kitchen was well equipt and beds comfortable. Although we were only able to stay 2 nights they treated us like we were staying a month. We will most definitely be renting from them again."

"What can I say! We had such a great weekend. It's perfect if you need a place for a big family. There was plenty of room for eleven of us in the hill house! The 3rd room in the hill house has fans because the air doesn't quite make it cool enough, but it was very comfortable for the kids. It's a serene, peaceful it is perfect for family or couples. The college town is only about 10 minutes away. We went one night and had great pizza at a local place. Walmart was about 15 minutes away where we shopped for our groceries for the weekend. There is a General Dollar that is very close for anything you might have forgotten too. We spent a lot of time on the property, using the barn for a cook-out and the kids played with various outdoor toys. The boys walked to the pond and went fishing, ( it was a little farther than what we had expected ) but they said it was a great hike and the pond pictures are beautiful. The family provides, toilet paper, paper towels, dishwashing soap, and lots of misc. items that are already in the home. The Escobar family were more than accommodating, and even gave us FRESH brown eggs from their chickens for breakfast. It was a wonderful weekend for our family and we left with lots of memories and had lots of laughs. We would highly recommend to stay here."

"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."
