Property description

Are you planning on attending the World Famous Chicken Festival in downtown London, KY sometime between September 22 through the 25th? Don't like the idea of staying in a hotel/motel that will most likely be full to it 's occupancy? Here is an alternative: stay at this country cottage. It's only 13 miles away from London, and is easy to get to.; it is only a 7 min. drive off exit 49 on I-75. Plus, it offers many perks and amenities for your enjoyment.
You will want to spend lots of time sitting on the covered back deck that overlooks a peaceful, serene pond.
Build a fire in the fire pit and have a cookout.
The cottage is comfortable, spic and span clean, and offers many extras.
Sit on the floating dock and feed the fish.
Feel free to take a walk around the property and breathe in the fresh, country air. You may even get a glance of deer or turkey while on your walk.
In the evening, go outdoors and see the magnificent galaxy of stars dot the sky.
If you are an avid bird watcher, you will enjoy the various birds who will visit the bird feeder right outside the front window. Cardinals, nut hatches, goldfinches, blue jays, woodpeckers, and chickadees are the most common birds that are seen feeding.
Watch the three resident horses graze in the fields surrounding you. If you wish, you may feed them carrots and apples. Our horses are very gentle and love our guests, especially ones who come bearing treats!
The inside of this cottage is loaded with character and charm; it even has a real tree trunk in it! You will be pleased when you see all the amenities that are included; just bring your clothes, food, and drinks, plus fishing poles and bait if you plan on fishing. See the 'amenities' section to see a complete list of what is supplied.
The massive floor to ceiling genuine field stone chimney containing a gas log gives a warm, cozy glow to the bedroom. (Fireplace is on seasonal, usually between late September through mid April).
The cottage is equipped with high speed unlimited WIFI for your convenience.
A 32 inch flat screen television is is equipped with Dish programming. Local Lexington channels are included, plus four Epix Movie channels for your viewing enjoyment. The cottage also has a DVD player, so you can bring your favorite movies with you in case you cannot find anything you like on the Dish or Epix channels.
A Lazy Boy rocker/recliner to relax on and a couch that converts into a queen sized sleeper bed is also part of the living room decor.
Finished original wood flooring is in the kitchen, living room, and bedroom and adds a rustic touch to the inside of the cottage.
The kitchen is large, and fully stocked so that if you wish, you can cook some great tasting meals.
The cottage has a full size bathroom.
Your well behaved and housebroken pet is welcome to accompany you for an additional charge of $25.00 per visit per pet under three days. Over three days, the fee is $10.00 per day per pet. Limit of two pets per stay. If you have plans to bring your pet, please mention this to us as you are making your reservation.
(At check in, you will be required to sign a rental agreement stating number of pets and overnight guests in your party.)
Feel free to build a fire in the fire pit that is in the backyard. No need to bring firewood as we supply the wood for you. It's a great way to end a perfect day.
The cottage also has ample parking for your truck/trailer if you plan on bringing your ATV.
The cottage is conveniently located 3 miles off I-75. It is a short drive to London and other nearby attractions.
Renfro Valley Music Center is only a 15 min. drive from the cottage.
Other places and events that may be of interest to you include:

Levi Jackson Wilderness Road State Park is 15 miles south, in London.
Camp Wildcat Civil War Battle Historical Site is about 1 1/2 miles from the cottage.

Original Colonel Sander's Cafe and Museum, Corbin, KY. Located approximately 20 miles south, eat where the Kentucky Fried Chicken began.
Speaking of food, there are many different restaurants in nearby London, KY.
Hiking trails are plentiful in our area; feel free to roam wherever you wish on our land. (70 acres). There are also more hiking trails on the land bordering ours that you may hike on.
This is just a short list of things you can do while you are visiting. There are many other special events going on year round in nearby London that may interest you. Just ask when you inquire and I will be happy to answer any questions you may have.

Manager info

Year Purchased: 2001

About: My husband Pete and I are orginally from Northern Illinois. We moved down to Kentucky in 2001, and absolutely love it here. Pete had lived in Kentucky in the past when he attended MSU and fell in love at that time with the beautiful countryside. We currently have a small farm and raise chickens and have three pleasure horses for our personal use, plus Holstein calves.

Why East Bernstadt, KY, USA:
We love horses and living in the country, and when we first set eyes on this piece of property, it was love at first sight! We really do feel like we have a small piece of heaven right here. The rolling hillsides, the deep woods, and the beautiful sunrises and sunsets just confirm the fact that we made the right choice by moving to Kentucky.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
We are very near to the Daniel Boone National Forest which gives us great wooded views all around. There are numerous trails everywhere, great for both horseback riding and hiking, which we both love to participate in. We chose this property over all others because of it's beauty, tranquility, and seclusion. We desire that you would feel 'at home' while you are here, and we are dedicated to give you the best service possible. It is our goal that every guest who visits comes away feeling refreshed and re-newed, and our hope is that you would desire to visit us again in the future.
