About Kenneth and Sheila Brown

We enjoy living in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. Although we are not totally isolated, traffic jams are rare. The air seems fresher and clearer. We enjoy traveling on the 2-lane blacktop road (KY 11) lined with trees and wildflowers; a couple times a wildcat has leaped across our route and scampered up the roadside hillside; too fast to get a picture, but a memory was created. One early morning, Ken rounded a corner about a mile from here and a black bear was running ahead of him in his lane. Ken was braking and the car was almost sitting on the bear's butt when finally, it veered off into the forest. In the winter, we feed the wild turkeys. Turkeys have a hard time surviving bad winters. There are days that we are delighted with things that happen in our environment; this is a good thing for us - to be delighted.

Kenneth and Sheila Brown purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Kenneth and Sheila Brown chose Kentucky

Sheila's Tale: My mother and I would ride a taxi to Natural Bridge and spend the day. She packed our food in a red plastic carrying cooler with 'Coke' written on the front. Home canned green beans, and fried potatoes, corn bread fritters wrapped in a dish cloth, a mason jar of water and a bunch of green onions were our food for the day. We hiked the trails and swam in a lake with turtles and fishes nibbling on our toes. The taxi would pick us up in the evening and take us home to Irvine, KY, 30 miles away. I learned to appreciate trees and wildflowers and the beauty of nature in the Natural Bridge, Red River Gorge and Danial Boone Forest. My heart has been softened to nature's beauty throughout the world because of my visits to this area. And, I brought my daughters, their friends and my Girl Scout Troop here. We camped out and did all the things that I did in childhood and more. Further, I brought my grandchildren here. Where else could I retire but to the place that heart-felt memories of my mother teaching me about nature and the natural world and, me, in turn, teaching my daughters and grandchildren to cook a meal on an open fire; and further, helping young girls experience the self awareness that almost everyone has bad hair in the morning. My heart is here because what I value is here: all kinds of natural beauty. I am here and I welcome you to visit us at Kentucky Wildflowers, LLC. You're gonna love it.

Ken's Tale: It has been my life-long dream to live in a log cabin on the hill in the mountains of Eastern Kentucky. We live on the farm year round.

What makes this cabin unique

We have 150 acres to hike. There are trails cleared for convenience and enjoyment; the trees and flowers can be enjoyed during nature walks. Also, you can invent your own trail if you want to get off the beaten path. Best of all, a creek runs through this property; the creek has never been completely dry. Some of the holes are deep enough to get really wet. The property is called Wildcat Hollow and is surrounded by cliffs. A cool breeze blows all summer down the hollow across the creek. At night, birds get tuned up and sing. You can see the stars when the clouds are gone and it is so dark at night.

Incredible Stay

  • 5 of 5

Ken and Sheila were hands-down the most incredible hosts I have ever had for an Airbnb/VRBO stay.

I proposed to my fiance at the Indian Staircase in Red River Gorge and wanted a place to go to where all her friends and my friends could be for us to celebrate together. While Ken and Sheila usually receive families at their cabin, they were incredibly accommodating in allowing my group of friends get together and celebrate. We pitched tents so everyone had a spot to sleep and Ken and Sheila could not have been nicer about making sure we had everything we needed.

Lillie's cabin was a very modern house (nicer than my apartment back home by far) with TV, a beautiful kitchen, plenty of beds, and a full working bathroom. There was a fire ring out front for S'mores and a charcoal grill in the back where we made kebabs.

The day after we celebrated we got to walk around the gorgeous land that Ken and Sheila own and walk in the creek. Their property is the perfect representation of everything Red River Gorge, with plenty of greenery and space to roam around.

Overall, we had an incredible trip! Anything you need, Ken and Sheila are willing to work with you, and they are just the nicest most genuine people I've ever met. I wouldn't do anything different for my proposal.

Thank you Ken and Sheila!

Owner's Response: We loved this guest, his fiance and friends. To start off our planning conversation and process, we learned that he is in the Navy ROTC Program. Since Kenneth was a sailor, we had to give some flexibility to our "partying" policy for this guest. Let's say that less than 30 people arrived to celebrate this Engagement Party; they were walking everywhere trying to find the shortest routes to Lillie's Cabin from where they parked their cars. Since there were several cars, the guests parked about 100 feet (as a crow flies) from Lillie's Cub Cabin. How wonderful it was to have all these visitors at Wildcat Hollow. When you know, as our guest did, what you want, we can usually accommodate your plans. Congratulations to our guest and his fiance; you are in our prayers as you start the next level of your relationship. We were part of the Engagement Celebration and, hopefully, we will be a part of any future celebrations. Note: We appreciate your commitment, sacrifice, service and support of our Country, the USA. Be safe. Be careful. God bless. Kenneth and Sheila Brown

Perfect little place in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

You are back enough to be secluded but not far enough to feel separated from it all.

Hosts were fantastic and the place was perfect. Hiking trails and a creek all right outside the cabin. Couldn't have asked for better. We will def be back!

Owner's Response: Welcome to Lillie's Cub Cabin. We are very happy to have this family stay at Wildcat Hollow, Lillie's Cub Cabin. The first night, parents and children took a night hike. On the following days, we know for sure that a couple turtles were delayed in making their destination in a timely manner. Ha. This family climbed at Torrent Climbing Adventure. We look forward to their return. Thank you for choosing Lillie's Cub Cabin. Kenneth and Sheila

late summer getaway

  • 4 of 5

property was exceptionally clean inside and set up to support groups of all sizes. Kitchen had everything we needed and more. Although there weren't places to stretch out and relax inside, I found myself out on the front porch parts of the first 1 1/2 days while it rained. Had another couple join us the last night and they slept in bunk beds on the second floor.

Owner's Response: Rain, sleet, snow and sunshine are weather conditions that guests can enjoy in this area. Just ordered a lounging futon to be put in the loft for those who want to stay indoors sometimes. The guests who wrote this review were wonderful and self-reliant. The borrowed a reading lamp and we took the hint. We are looking for a reading lamp that will fit on the log bed. We will treat our guests like we want to be treated when we are traveling. We will pamper when pampering is needed. Thank you for the nice review. We hope to see you again. Be safe. Be careful. God bless. Thank you for choosing Lillie's Cub Cabin. Kenneth and Sheila Brown

Owner's Response: If you can be entertained by Mother Nature, with the scenic beauty of Natural Bridge, Red River Gorge, Muir Valley, Murray - Pendergrass Recreational Preserve, Creation Falls, Sky Bridge, Chimney Rock and a host of other areas created over thousands of years by weather, erosion, earth tremors, tornadoes and other natural occurring events, this is the area for you. If you are an enthusiast for photography, wildflowers, grasses, creeks, rocks, stately cliffs and beauty abounding in all weather and all seasons, this is the area for you. If you are a beginning, intermediate or expert in rock climbing, head to Torrent Climbing Adventure for experienced leadership in rock-climbing. If you are a hiker, hundreds of trails can be walked for 30 minutes or 30 days ranging from easy to strenuous. If you are a camper, Koomer's Ridge, Land of Arches, Linda's Lago, Natural Bridge, Kentucky Wildflowers, LLC, Red River Gorge, and hundreds of other camping areas are available. The Red River Adventure has canoes and kayaks on the Red River and Mill Creek Lake. You can horseback ride at Cable's Riding Stable. Thrillsville is a climbing adventure for all ages; also, these folks will take you on a canoe ride in an underground cavern. This area is known for ADVENTURE. However, not all of our visitors, who are global, want adventure. This area has the gifts of peace and quiet and breath taking beauty that is really awesome. You can experience some personal time to heal your body and mind in a lessened stress-free environment. Not only can you enjoy all the references above, you can challenge yourself to conquer some fears, build confidence and be more self-assured with your individual or your children's walk/journey through life. Your visit here should be a journey for personal or family growth. Who knows that if a child learns to catch a crawdad/crawfish in Lillie's Cub Cabin's (Kentucky Wildflowers, LLC) creek, that child may take an interest in keeping our waters (throughout our community, our state, our nation, our world) cleaner. Your visit to this area could have a small or a big impact on your life. It is our goal, Kenneth and Sheila, to help our guests in anyway we can. This is an area that we love, cherish, protect and promote to family, friends and guests. To those reading this narrative, if you enjoy and can benefit from any of the above, WELCOME to Kentucky Wildflowers, LLC, (Lillie's Cub Cabin). We look forward to your visit.

Perfect spot, close to everything but secluded

  • 5 of 5

Great for kids or large groups, very clean. Up to date, I can't say enough about the cleanliness, much better than some other cabins I've stayed in before down there. Everything is in working order and we'll maintained.

Nice, comfortable cabin.

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our stay here. Very clean and plenty of space. We both needed access to wifi - which worked very well for us. The owners did a nice job of contacting us via email before our stay to provide information about the cabin and the area. Just a couple of things that prevent a 5 star rating: 1) the driveway up to the cabin (where you make the turn around owner's home) is very rough and needs leveled out; seems like a relatively simple thing to do and 2) the water pressure is extremely low and signs are present in the cabin to conserve water -- it was hard to feel "clean" after a hot day of hiking when it would be nice just to take a long nice shower. That said, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend the cabin to friends.

Owner's Response: Wonderful guests; we gave them a free night because it worked out that we could. When we can give our guests a monetary break, we will because we want them to be happy and enjoy their stay at Lillie's Cub Cabin, and, maybe, they will come back for another visit. In response to the reason for a 4-Star Rating: This is the first time we have not received a 5-Star Rating. 1. Seems like it has rained everyday in June and the water runs off the hill at the foot of the driveway. Ninety percent of the driveway is concrete, as the rain falls it washes the dirt and gravel. If this guest noticed, we have a pile of gravel within five feet of the area talked about and we routinely level and spread gravel. We apologize to you, our guests, for this rough area. 2. Wish you would have mentioned to us that the water pressure was low. It takes a minor adjustment for water pressure. Thank you for choosing Lillie's Cub Cabin. We appreciate your honesty about Lillie's Cub Cabin; we want to know if we can IMPROVE our service and business. Thank you for the positive remarks. Be safe. Be careful. God bless. Kenneth and Sheila Brown P.S. To those reading this response and plan to stay with us at Wildcat Hollow, we ask that if anything is not to your liking, please let us know. We will try our best to make a change.
