About the property

Newly finished: Just listed " Boulder Ridge" a luxury cabin rental!

Welcome to Boulder Ridge! A dream getaway guaranteed to take your breath away!

Your stay is surrounded by a panoramic view of three private acres of forest with majestic boulders aligning the ridge. When you see Babu the 9 foot 1000 pound bear, you're there! He centers the gravel/stone island and loves getting his picture taken.

The cabin was purchased from a cabinetmaker who milled each board and cherry wood beam by hand, then meticulously crafted and designed every inch of the cabin. Upon entering you will be awestruck by the 15' stone fireplace with 50 in. tv above mantel, chalet windows, cherry wood beams and luxury kitchen with quartz countertops, propane stove, glass range hood set in a rustic stone wall.

Immediately step into a panoramic four seasons sunroom with a spectacular view of the boulders on the ridge. From the sunroom go through the French doors to a private screened in porch.

The loft has a view overlooking the great room, ridge and forest .Enjoy your own private balcony, pool table, King and full size log beds, flatscreen tv with dvd player in the loft. Our Master Bedroom has a log queen bed and chest of drawers. Both the master and great room have over 100 channels of cable tv. Enjoy unlimited Wi-Fi throughout the cabin.

The covered front porch offers seclusion while enjoying the hot tub. At night three star showers light up the forest in a whimsical display. Out back a rumblestone firepit and large covered patio provide privacy and fun. We are a short walk from a view of the valley where you can see comets and shooting stars in the night sky.

We are centrally located in the heart of Daniel Boone National Forest with the 'Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge Area' being only 20-30 minutes away. These two nationally known locations offer many activities such as: canoeing, underground kayaking, zip-lining, family rock-climbing, scenic hiking trails, and unique trade and gift shops.

Carter Caves being approximately an hour east offers horseback riding and cave tours.

Our cabin is less than a mile away from Cave Run Lake and Long Bow Marina. Cave Run Marina, Longbow's sister marina, offers pontoon, fishing and paddle boat rentals at reasonable rates. We are boaters and have two spacious turnarounds and level parking for your boat saving you time and dock fees.

Upon your reservation we send you a downloadable welcome packet with directions to all the adventure sites in the area from your cabin location. There is no other cabin like the 'Boulder Ridge Luxury cabin rental'. as 'we spared no expense'. Prepare for a Gatlinburg experience with Hometown prices.

We have something for everyone. Our focus is to exceed your expectations!

About Phil and Margie Skyrm

Margie and I purchased our first cabin in 2005. Cabins became our passion. We're probably the only couple who owns every season of Log Cabin Living. We've searched for cabin motif in popular amish communities, log and home shows, unique trade and antique stores, private owners and out of the way vacation destinations. We look for high quality unique furnishings and décor you just can't find in your everyday dwelling. We furnish our cabins with this unique décor'. From cuckoo clocks to burl wrapped walking sticks we thrive on the unique. We are very hands on cabin owners; offering any assistance our renters may need. After 12 years of experience and hundreds of rentals, we take great pleasure in what we do. I've been with the same company for 25 years and am reminded of that old cliché. "Not just a job but an adventure!"

Phil and Margie Skyrm purchased this cabin in 2017

Why Phil and Margie Skyrm chose Frenchburg

We have been looking at this property for some time. We purchased land nearby as our love for the beauty of the forest grew from over twelve years of experiencing its hidden treasures. We came to believe that the beauty of the forest could be as relaxing as a soothing massage. I've seen huge white tailed bucks leap eight feet into the air to evade me on walking trails. I've seen entire families of deer and wild turkeys some fifty in number. I would walk to the ridge overlooking the valley at night viewing shooting stars and comets in the backdrop of hundreds of stars. I was speechless. This was always my wife's favorite place and when the cabin became available we were delighted to get it.

What makes this cabin unique

The benefits of staying at a Luxury cabin rental at least once in your lifetime is to experience a blessing with a memory you will carry for the rest of your life. Statistically people who vacation once a year add' eleven years' to their life. Sometimes the best exercise is rest and relaxation. 'He leadeth me beside the still waters, He restoreth my soul".

What a sweet cabin in the woods!!!

  • 5 of 5

Wow, what a great cabin! Everything, and we mean EVERYTHING was so well-kept, clean, comfortable and accommodating! Pics really don't do this cabin justice! Beautiful, top to bottom! Quiet, private, surrounded by gorgeous trees and birds! Don't mind the kamikaze squirrel throwing walnuts, he's harmless!! LOL!

Plenty of room to park the boat and trailer! Wait til you see the view from the drive headed to the cabin!! And the view from the wall of windows when you wake up in the morning … WOW!

We loved having the pool table to kill time during the rain, and how peaceful to sit on the front porch with coffee and the birds!

The kitchen was awesome, as was the four-seasons room! We actually spent a lot of time on the screen porch as well, listening to rain hit the metal roof with a full view of Mother Nature!

Close to Cave Run Lake, Morehead and some local awesome antique/collectible shops and the best BBQ place we've experienced!

Phil was quite the host, too! From booking til we arrived back home, his only goal was our satisfaction! He was so helpful, genuine and accommodating!

You literally need nothing but your clothes and some food and beverages!

We are already booking our next stay!

Owner's Response: Enjoyed reading about your experience. The previous owner was a Master cabinetmaker who cut down and milled his own trees and built this over ten years. His elderly condition caused him to sell the property and we were honored to attain it. I finished the project and was determined to maintain his high standard of excellence. Thankyou for honoring his legacy with such a wonderful review!

Great weekend getaway!! Beautiful Cabin and beautiful surroundings.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great weekend and really enjoyed the area. Cabin was great and had everything we needed and wanted. Hot tub and pool table took up the time we weren’t enjoying the sites and taking in the scenery. Thanks Phil and Margie for being such gracious host. See y’all soon!

Went for a short weekend. Even though it rained, still enjoyed the cabin. It was one of the nicest rental homes we have stayed in. We will definitely go back.

Rejuvenation Station

Wow! My husband and I stayed at this cabin to celebrate our first year of marriage, and believe me, this was more than we could have asked for. We spent our time playing pool in the loft while peeking over the railing to watch television in the main room. When we tired of pool we went directly for the hot tub! Which I should also say was private and had the most incredible view of the wilderness around us. Once we needed to cool down we headed in and made lunch/dinner in a kitchen that’s even nicer than the one in our own home! They provided every appliance and every utensil/cookware you could possibly need on a getaway. What we appreciated most from this was eating our meal out in the fully furnished “sun room”. There is nothing like sharing a meal and being surrounded by windows with view on views, on views! Whether you’re booking this for you and your significant other, or for you and your kids, it is going to blow you away. My only recommendation would be to book one more night than you’re already planning for, because you are just not going to be ready to leave. Kudos to the guys who list this, thanks for a great stay! We will be back next year! (:
