Beautiful cabin and Property
This is a beautiful cabin on a beautiful piece of property. The lake is very tranquil and relaxing. The lack of cell phone signal makes for the perfect getaway. Fred and his wife are very friendly and nice people. This is definitely worth every bit of 5 stars.
You guys were the perfect visitors. We enjoyed you enjoying this beautiful place. Incidently Verizon has a strong signal here, AT&T not so good.
Enjoyable Family Getaway
Our family decided to spend a few days in the Red River Gorge area and wanted to find a place to stay where we could continue our enjoyment of nature as well as give us some space to unwind. The Sneaky Bear Hideaway was the perfect spot for this. While not the closest property to the Red River Gorge (or anything, really), the drive was pleasant and not too far. Also, being out in the middle of nowhere provided a peaceful relaxing time.
The overall property is several acres and includes the owner's residence and two other cabins. The Sneaky Bear is up on a hillside overlooking the lake, giving it a good deal of privacy, yet the convenience of being right near the lake and its own private dock, and little boat. If you want to be right on the water, the other two cabins would be ideal for you, but we thought the Sneaky Bear was perfectly situated.
The property is beautiful with a lake and some scenic hiking trails that should not be missed, with caves, shelters, and a lot of natural Kentucky beauty. It boarders undeveloped land that adds to the nature and beauty of the area.
The cabin itself its pretty new, and is modern, clean, and comfortable. The kitchen is well-stocked is comfortably upscale. We only cooked one meal during our stay, but could have easily used it for several meals. There are several decks perfect for relaxing, and the living room is spacious, open, and comfortable.
Some notes to consider: 1) If you want to enjoy nature and explore -- this is the perfect place, but if you're looking for something near shops, restaurants, etc . . . its a little drive (but doable -- Beattyville has a couple restaurants and a couple discount stores -- one of the days after exploring/hiking we drove to Hilltop Pizza, ordered, went to Dollar General to grab a couple items, went back to pick up the pizza, and went home to eat and watch a movie -- minimizing the travel). 2) Use Google Maps, NOT iPhone's map app (when I typed the address into the iPhone map app, it changed the road name to a very similar road name, leading us to the wrong location, but the Google Maps app worked great). 3) The drive up to the Sneaky Bear cabin is steep -- we did it fine with just a 2-wheel drive SUV, but I would have not wanted to try it during a time of year when it may be icy. 4) The trails are a must see, but we needed to get directions to them, so be sure you ask.
Great place -- if ever back in the area, we would stay here again!
We had a blast fishing in the huge pond and staying in the awesome cabin. We fished until 3am and caught some HUGE fish! My only complaint was that there was no cell phone service or internet service there. Not a huge deal because that's why we went on vacation. To escape those things for a bit but the boy wanted to fall asleep watching a movie on his tablet but we had no service. I have been told tho that they have switched providers and the internet is now working.. If that is fixed I would have zero complaints about our stay. It was clean, and very fun!
Glad you enjoyed your stay. A storm the day before you arrived knocked out the internet and the carrier tarried about fixing it so we now have a new carrier. As far as the telephone, AT&T has only spotty reception in this area. Verizon and all others of which we are aware have full and reliable coverage.
Awesome in every way!
We had a wonderful time and almost didn’t leave the cabin the whole time! Having the lake and boat to use and just the peaceful setting was marvelous! We all loved the cabin and loved being there! Thank you again!
Great place to relax!!
Absolutely loved the place! Secluded from hectic tourist area, very well stocked kitchen and bathrooms. Beautiful place! Husband loved the access to fishing boat and lake. Will definitely come back.
It’s very nice
