1st Floor Suite of the Kentucky River Cottages. *Featured on the Live Well Network's Sweet Retreats!* The cottage is situated on a large wooded lot overlooking the Palisades of the Kentucky River. The surrounding woods and river provide spectacular scenery all year round. Family recreation is readily available at the Horseshoe pit and Corn Hole boards. With direct river access, canoeing and kayaking are popular activities on the river. In the evening relax in the Hot Tub and star gaze around an open fire in the large fire pit off the stone patio. If you want more adventure, the cottage is a short drive to fun dining experiences at Jean Farris Winery and Bistro, or Proud Mary's riverside restaurant and bar. Although the cottage is in a secluded setting, it's only a half mile from Interstate 75, within easy driving distance to Boone's Trace championship golf course, Boone Creek Canopy Tour (zipline), Boonesborough State Park, Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge State Park. The Kentucky Horse Park is a popular attraction and pairs up well with tours of surrounding Horse Farms and a visit to retired race horses at Old Friends Farm. Whatever activities you enjoy, you'll find it all at Kentucky River Cottages.

The 1st Floor Suite of the Cottage has a complete kitchen and dining area. Doors open onto the stone patio overlooking the river. This suite is also wheelchair accessible through the sliding doors in the front of the cottage. The bathroom has a large open shower and sturdy holding bars are provided around the commode and bidet.

The private bedroom has 2 cozy twin beds. If additional sleeping arrangements are needed, the 1st Floor Suite has a comfortable sofa bed and/or we can provide a twin mattress and bedding.

When you arrive, you'll find a binder on the table listing area attractions and our staff stands by to ensure you have a great experience. Our goal is to provide you with a retreat, an opportunity for restoration and rejuvenation.

About Ellen Bowman

Ralph, my husband, and I love to fish and boat on the Kentucky River as well as enjoy the countryside beauty of our scenic state. Entertaining family and friends with southern style hospitality is very important to us. We love people and want to provide a place for others to experience the beauty of the outdoors and nature.

Ellen Bowman purchased this Cottage in 2005

Why Ellen Bowman chose Fayette County

We originally looked at this property because we wanted to have access to the river for boating and fishing. Though the house needed to be completely remodeled and the lot was severely over grown with weeds and brush, the view was overwhelmingly beautiful and made all the hard work worth it. We could see so many possibilities for this property.
