Kentucky River Cottages - 2nd Floor Suite

Bedrooms 1
Property type cottage
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

2nd 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.

If you need space for a family group or entertaining friends, the 2nd Floor Suite of the Cottage has a complete kitchen and dining area and the patio doors open onto a large deck that overlooks the Kentucky River. The sitting area features several cushiony couches centered around a large TV and an electric fireplace for cool evenings. The private bedroom has a comfortable queen bed and, if additional sleeping arrangements are needed, this suite also has a 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 Brenda Oldfield

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.

Brenda Oldfield purchased this cottage in 2005

Why Brenda Oldfield chose Lexington

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.

Best hospitality ever!

  • 5 of 5

This place is secluded but convenient. Great restaurant/ bar with live music close by. Has a small water fall right across the river. Lots of wild life on river. Super clean! Beautiful setting. Everything you need to cook. However, the absolute best thing is the super hospitality from Melissa and Ellen! We were brought fresh cut flowers and there had been thunderstorms the day before so Melissa called to tell us about the storms and about places to seek shelter in case of additional storms. We ended up having to depart at 10:30 on Tuesday because we were called that my father in law was being air lifted due to a heart attack. We sent Melissa a message and told her what happened and told her we would pay for additional cleaning because we did not take out trash, clean out refrigerator etc. Not only did they not charge us additional cleaning Ellen called us and is mailing us a gift card to come back at a later date. They also ask about my father in law.. We have rented a lot of vacation homes over the years and have never had such wonderful service. I would rent again and recccoment them to anyone!!

We so enjoyed our stay in the middle unit. Great deck overlooking the river. The house was immaculate and offered a full kitchen which was most helpful. Staff was great too
