Beyond incredible! Expectations Exceeded!

  • 5 of 5

I am completely in awe and was so sad to leave today. My husband and I (and 2 small dogs) had the most amazing time at the Rockridge River Cabin. The cabin is spotless, has all the comforts of home and we had such a great time exploring the huge piece of land. We hiked up the mountain, down the river and loved searching for our firewood each afternoon. The screened in porch was so very comfortable and I contemplated sleeping out there because it was so inviting. Dedicated WIFI was a great surprise and made it easier to check in with work. The gas grill so convenient and we ate like royalty each night by the fire and hot tub.

You won't want to leave so pack all of your food for cooking for the time you are there. We had the option to eat out but I refused to leave my paradise! Each morning I looked forward to having coffee in the hot tub, taking a nature walk, cooking out at the grill, camp fires and stories at night and more hot tubbing in time for happy hour!

We will be back and loved every minute of our stay!

Thank you so very much, Jeff, for everything!

We had an amazing weekend at Rockridge from start to finish. We wanted to stay forever! It is clean and has all the accommodations you could ask for, and then some. The beautiful grill made meals a breeze, and sitting in the hot tub under the stars can't be beat. The location is ideal, too - isolated, but with every comfort you could want. Hike the ridge, wade in the creek, zip around in the ATV. Our kids loved every minute. We can't wait to come back!

Perfect setting to tie the knot!

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough good about the Rock! The views, the scenery, the tons of things to do on this property alone could keep you here for weeks. We are looking forward to a return visit. The cabin was cozy, the fishing was great, nice evening camp fires both by the water and cabin, grilled & soaked in the hot tub every day, took naps and ate our meals in the sleeping porch. Even saw Turkey. A great place to kick back relax and enjoy nature. So much of the 200 acres we didn't get to explore but plan on next time. Atv in the canyon, the shooting range and inner tubing are next on our list. Read all the reviews. Looks like lots of memories made here. We are glad we chose this location for our wedding. And the pictures are sure to turn out amazing! Jeff was quite accommodating especially prepping the grounds knowing we were getting married here. The cabin had everything in it you would need. Even the wild flowers came thru for us and made for a perfect bouquet. This is now a special place for us. One we will visit for years to come!

Great get away

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was off the highway and the perfect little get away. We took the 4 wheeler out to tour the property. We found the Caverns, we saw a Black Bear. We fished in the little creek. The cabin was clean and stocked with all the comforts of home. We grilled out, used the hot tub each night. Just what we needed Thank you for the use of a wonderful little mountain cabin.

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Decided to take a "vacation from it all" with the kids, dogs, and extended family. What a great week-end. Jeff was there to meet us when we arrived, and took complete care of us all week-end (atv tours, shooting range, tubing in the river). Great cabin, even better outdoor kitchen! My daughter loved the goats, and wanted to take one home with her! We are "city folk", and our kids (6 & 8) were a little nervous at first, but ended the week-end having survived "The Rock", and asking to come back every year! Make sure to bring all the food you need for your visit, because you will not be leaving the property, and there really isn't anything better to do nearby. All you could possibly want to do is right there! Thanks Jeff! We will return!!!

Excellent Adventures

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time at the Rockridge River Cabin. My wife, 2 teenage sons and our dog enjoyed exploring this large property, fishing, swimming in the creek and relaxing under starry skies. The screened in porch kept most of the bugs out and ceiling fans made for nice air flow. The cabin's accommodations are rustic as advertised but quite comfortable nonetheless. Internet and a dedicated cellular access point was nice too. The gas grill is excellent for cooking large meals.

Jeff was very accommodating. We stayed the week after a major heat wave and Derecho storm caused widespread damage throughout the region. Jeff cleared up downed trees and and made sure we had good access to the creek and trials. We rented his ATV for the week and everyone just had a blast. This was most worth while and I highly recommend it. I also arranged for an afternoon with Jeff's services as a range master. My boys (age 15 & 12) got their first experience using firearms in a safe and responsible environment. It was pretty amusing to see that thousands of rounds shot at aliens or bad guys on an Xbox didn't automatically translate into marksmanship in the real world. As a parent, I appreciated the learning opportunity this provided.

It was fun to load the ATV with a tackle bag and cooler and motor down to the gazebo in just a couple of minutes. This way, we hit Potts Creek a couple times each day and caught Smallmouth Bass and variety of sunfish. Trout were there too, but somewhat scarce. For fly roders, a 6wt & small popping bugs were just the ticket for getting plenty of action. Trails throughout the property enabled us to access nice pools and riffles on this property.

For dining out, Covington is about 20 miles away east. There are several restaurants there including a fairly good Mexican one. Paint Branch is located 10 miles west. There, you'll find a one stop general store/ family restaurant. Guests should plan to cook most of their meals however.

If you want to get away from it all, this is a nice choice. Urban teenagers might find the rural location boring at first but there's enough internet and cellular accessto keep them from going cold turkey. Cooling off at the creek on a hot sumer day quickly becomes more pleasant than they might have realized and the 4 wheel exploring opportunities are a must activity each day. Bottom line, this was time well spent.
