My Old Kentucky Home...
Built for each of our parents, that used to live in Alaska, so that they had a place to relax while on extended stays.
Located on our property (far from the house) is one of Boone Counties Historic grave sites for the Smith family.
The Shack is located directly behind our main house, and we live here year around. We have 6 dogs with us on our property that love chasing the birds, deer and rabbits that show up.
We felt like it would be fun to build what looked like the “old Smith shack”, but with all the modern luxury. We think we accomplished our objective. The house uses old barn beams that are from a barn in Indiana that housed Morgans Raiders in the Civil War. http:// war/general-morgan-s-raid-on-indiana. We used tobacco sticks from a local families barns as the isles for the railing of the loft. Even the stove is “old timey”. We combined this with custom built cabinets in the galley kitchen and an old school shower head that ‘lets water flow’.
The shack will take you back to a bygone era as you curl up and read a book in front of the wood burning stove, relax on the porch rocking chairs, or sleep in late after a full day enjoying the activities of Northern Kentucky.
This cabin has a loft where we can fit another double sized blow-up mattress or you can put the blow-up mattress downstairs.
We provide luxury quality linens on the bed for maximum comfort while you stay. 1000 thread count linens in 100% cotton on the beds.
*NEW ADDITION! Just added a double bed to the 2nd downstairs bedroom. Moved the day bed with 2 twin mattresses upstairs to the loft. Loft has queen size blow up mattress that can be set up to be used upstairs or downstairs!
WE ARE 14 MILES FROM THE CREATION MUSEUM AND 31 MILES FROM THE ARK ENCOUNTER!
**Please note: the loft has very steep stairs and if you are considering using this space, make sure you are fit and able to use these steps. Not recommended for families with very young children**
