There are many activities within a short driving distance from the property like Woods Lake, Wildcat Mountain, Cumberland Lake, Bald Rock recreational area, Tom Walker's cabin, the crafts and shops at Berea, Rockcastle River canoe trips, four wheeling and horse trails, historical sites like Colonel Sanders' first restaurant in Corbin and many more. It is not the Ritz but it is clean, comfortable and VERY relaxing and you will be glad you stayed.

Nice place to enjoy a quiet and relaxing stay

  • 4 of 5

Had a good time staying at this cabin. Less than an hour to red river gorge and Cumberland falls which was where we planned our trip to. I would stay here if we visit this area again.

Really good inside, and quiet on the outside.

  • 4 of 5

We followed Debbie's directions and drove right to it. Computer directions would probably have gotten us lost. Google directions have got me in trouble more than once. We took a walk on the road for a mile or two and saw two deer and two turkeys. The inside of the home was very clean. I would recommend this to anyone who wants quiet, no planes, trains, or automobiles. Debbie brought us a large umbrella when we arrived because it started raining when we got there. Overall, it's a good place to relax.

Great time!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time staying at this cabin. The surroundings were so peaceful and quiet, a perfect place to retreat. While the cabin was nothing fancy and will benefit from some updates the owner already plans on doing, it was absolutely adequate for meeting our needs. Debbie, the owner, was extremely kind and helpful!

A nice get-a-way

  • 4 of 5

The property is located off the beaten path for a very quiet and relaxing atmosphere. There are horses grazing across the street. We stayed here for nearby access to Daniel Boone National Forest at a good price. It is a spacious 1 bed / 1 bath place with plenty of sitting room in the kitchen / living room. Like the owner's description said, it isn't the Ritz but everything is functional. There is a window a/c unit but we were there in November when it wasn't needed. All the basics are provided. Pictures are accurate.
