About Corrie Vos
My husband, Arvin Vos, and I were living in Bowling Green, KY, where he taught philosophy and I practiced psychology, when together with our daughter we bought Rock Haven. We have had marvelous family times there with our five children and grandchildren. Now that we have retired to Michigan and our children have established themselves in places across the country, we especially enjoy spending time together at Rock Haven.
Corrie Vos purchased this Cabin in 2002
Why Corrie Vos chose Pine Ridge
The moment we saw Rock Haven, built almost against a towering cliff, surrounded by forest, built of local lumber inside and out, we knew we wanted to own it. Over the years we have added several rooms, modified the most rustic features to increase comfort and convenience, and built a beautiful oak spiral stairs leading up to the upper level. We are happy to share it with our guests, which defrays some of our costs, and provides some work for our housekeepers.
What makes this Cabin unique
We love our beautiful and comfy cabin, the rock climbing opportunities, the cycling in the Gorge, eating at restaurants like Miguel's pizza and Rock House, and the fantastic scenery and hiking, but what we love most is that it is a quiet and peaceful place to enjoy being in nature.

Roomy yet cozy home with plenty of sleeping space. Our family of four had plenty of room to spread out yet still felt connected throughout the house. Everything was per the description in the listing.
What a great stay we had! So much to do all around the cabin, yet secluded and private! Kentucky is such a beautiful state and so glad we chose this cabin and location!
Long weekend with family
Had a great stay. Booking process was easy and house was what we expected. Plenty of room for 7 of us and our dog.
Wonderful cabin in the woods of the Red River Gorge
Our party of 6 and one dog had an enjoyable stay at this very unique cabin. There are plenty of hiking trails nearby, plus canoeing and kayaking at Mill Lake. We are ready to sign up again for next year.
Our family had a great time. Cabin is located close to a lot of great hiking and resturants.
Great private location
Loved the location of this property and was pleasantly surprised by how close it was to Natural Bridge State Resort and Red River Gorge. Our two families had enough space to be together but not too tight. The rock behind the house was great to look at and it felt like you were really in the trees upstairs. Cabin had everything we needed and I was even able to walk up the road and pick a handful of raspberries.
Rock Haven is located in Rocky Hollow, a valley on Mill Creek upstream from Mill Lake. It is just off the Glen Cairn-Rogers road, between Highways 11 and 15. Natural Bridge State Park is a five minute drive away. The Mountain Parkway is about five miles away is. Going in the other direction is Muir Valley about 8 miles away. In addition to being close to many of the best known rock climbing sites in the area, there are numerous hiking trails in the Red River Gorge and at Natural Bridge State Park. In the summer on Friday and Saturday evenings there is folk dancing near the Park's visitor center. There is a public swimming area at the park, open in season. Most of all, the valley location of the cabin is a quiet wooded retreat where it is possible to reconnect with nature, experience the rhythms of the day and evening. In summer, the trees around the cabin provide the comfort of shade, especially on the deck, and in late fall and early spring the cliff protects from the wind, and so the deck is a lovely place to sit in the sun. Nearby there is opportunity to enjoy a Zipline at Cliffwood and also a Via Ferrata. For those interested in rock climbing, Muir Valley and the many other sites that the area is famous for, are within a short drive. If you enjoy sight-seeing, then taking the loop drive from Pine Ridge through the Gorge to Slade is a wonderful introduction to the area. Even better is cycling the same route.
