About Mary Gonda-Chandler

My husband and I bought the land for Chandler Ridge in 2003, we began building that fall and by Spring 2005 the lodge was open for guests. We live within 15 miles of the cabin and love spending time there. We love to travel and have been very blessed to see some of the world so far. I have always wanted a log cabin of my own, but never dreamed of building a retreat facility. I have been in the hospitality business in some form since I was 18 so hosting guests from all over the world was not a big step for me. My husband is a great do it all kinda guy and we have built several things together. By far, the cabin is our favorite and we hope you enjoy it too.

Mary Gonda-Chandler purchased this cabin in 2003

What makes this cabin unique

The cabin is wonderfully located for guests visiting the Bourbon Trail, The Ark and many more inviting Kentucky area activities. As well as families gathering from the North to the South, it is a great central location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Chandler Ridge Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We were extremely happy with our stay at Chandler Ridge. We had a Friday night rehersal picnic for my daughters wedding with about 80 people. There was ample space for parking, tables/chairs, and many areas for our guests to mingle. House and grounds were charming and clean. Would highly recommend to anyone looking for a large property to entertain or just to be in a peaceful environment. The place was lovely. Thanks Mary!

Overall a great get-away!

  • 4 of 5

Cabin was great! The home itself was very clean and comfortable. We had 5 adults with this stay for a corporate team building trip. Couple things to note while not bad held back from 5 stars. The pool table is not level nor the cues straight. The couch is the basement as well as the poker table have some wear stains. Again not the end of the world but worth noting. Very quiet area in the middle of trees. We would definitely stay again.

A lovely (and huge) home to get away from it all

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property, it was the perfect country stopover for our group on a road trip which featured lots of cities. Whilst we were a little worried that our son would find it a bit too quiet he said it was his favourite place of our whole trip.

Beautiful & comfortable cabin!

  • 5 of 5

We had group of 16 stay in this beautiful Cabin. We arrived to see the Ark Encounter and Creation Museum. Absolutely enjoyed the comfort and beauty of this cabin. Wish we had planned to stay longer but only booked three nights. Could've easily spent a week at this sight. Plenty of linens, towels and dishes for all of our party and much more. Extremely clean, organized and well maintained. The owners were available if needed but definitely gave us complete privacy. They definitely know how to run a vacation rental. We will return!!!! Thank you!

Great clean cabin weekend for our family trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay! There were 6 adults and 3 kids (age 15, 6, and 1) staying for our family weekend. We spent a lot of our time out by the fire pit, fishing, hiking the short trails, and hanging out in the kitchen/dining area talking and laughing. There is plenty of wood for the fire pit around the cabin to gather but bring your own saw and a lighter. The owners are so helpful and quick to respond on all questions. We did have trouble with sound when playing games in the basement because the stairs are open to the rest of the house which wasn’t great when the 1 year old was napping upstairs. The only real separate bedroom is the one with the king bed- other 2 rooms with a door are full of bunk beds and the queen bed is in the loft open to the rest of the house. Our family stayed in one bunk room upstairs where there is room for a pack-in-play. The basement bunk room is really tight and small and was unused. The kitchen was fully stocked and a great size for all of us! The cabin was very clean and had a great cabin feel which was exactly what we were looking for!
