If you are planning on visiting Wildcat Adventures Off Road Park and are searching for a place to stay that will not hurt the wallet, here is your place!
Unlimited WIFI, gas log fireplace, queen size bed with foam mattress, backyard pond to gaze at, fire pit, fully stocked kitchen, and much more. We have just renovated the upstairs with a loft bedroom that contains a full size bed. Note: to access the second floor bedroom, there is a ladder/stairs combination. (please, no young or small children in the upstairs bedroom).
We are conveniently located 5 min. away from Wildcat Adventures Park. (Plenty of parking for your ATV/Trailer at the cabin). Come and ride the trails all day, and come back to the cabin and enjoy a camp fire in the fire pit by night. We even provide the fire wood for you. Sit on the covered back deck, weather permitting, and enjoy the view of the private backyard pond just steps away, or the beauty of the surrounding woods. Or, sitting on the floating dock at the pond may interest you. And yes, you can fish the pond. (Catch and release of the two huge bass in there, however)!
Feel free to walk around our property and breathe in the fresh, country air. You may even get a glance of deer or turkey.
If you are an avid bird watcher, you will enjoy the various birds who will visit the bird feeder right outside the front window. Cardinals, nut hatches, goldfinches, blue jays, woodpeckers, and chickadees are the most common birds that are seen.
Watch the three resident horses graze in the fields surrounding you. You may feed them carrots and apples. Our horses are very gentle and love all of our guests, especially ones who come bearing treats!
The inside of the cabin is loaded with character and charm of days gone by; it even has a real tree trunk in it! Original hardwood floors throughout. Almost everything that you would need is provided for you; just bring your clothes, food, and drinks, plus fishing poles and bait if you enjoy fishing. See the 'amenities' section to see a complete list of what is supplied for our guests.
The massive floor to ceiling genuine field stone chimney containing a gas log gives a warm, cozy glow to the bedroom.
As mentioned, the cabin is equipped with high speed unlimited WIFI for your convenience.
A 32 inch flat screen television in the living room area with Dish programming, including local Lexington channels. It also has a DVD player, so bring your favorite movies along with you.
A Lazy Boy rocker/recliner to relax on and a couch that converts into a queen sized sleeper bed is also part of the living room decor.
The kitchen is large, and fully stocked with all sorts of amenities.
It has a full size bathroom with a shower/tub plus a wall heater of it's own so that you will keep yourself warm after bathing or showering.

My husband Pete and I are orginally from Northern Illinois. We moved down to Kentucky in 2001, and absolutely love it here. Pete had lived in Kentucky in the past when he attended MSU and fell in love at that time with the beautiful countryside. We currently have a small farm and raise chickens and have three pleasure horses for our personal use, plus Holstein calves.
Julee Skarka purchased this cabin in 2001
We love horses and living in the country, and when we first set eyes on this piece of property, it was love at first sight! We really do feel like we have a small piece of heaven right here. The rolling hillsides, the deep woods, and the beautiful sunrises and sunsets just confirm the fact that we made the right choice by moving to Kentucky.
We are very near to the Daniel Boone National Forest which gives us great wooded views all around. There are numerous trails everywhere, great for both horseback riding and hiking, which we both love to participate in. We chose this property over all others because of it's beauty, tranquility, and seclusion.
We desire that you would feel 'at home' while you are here, and we are dedicated to give you the best service possible. It is our goal that every guest who visits comes away feeling refreshed and re-newed, and our hope is that you would desire to visit us again in the future.
Easy and comfortable. Low stress and very successfully got us away. Quiet and peaceful.
Just got done spending another week in the Bluegill Cottage. Thanks again to Pete and Julee for making a week without responsibilities go by entirely too fast. We couldn't have asked for better weather. Hope you see you guys again next year!
We loved this place!! Everything was perfect!!
Great view, private and quiet. We loved feeding the fish and visiting with the horses, Ginger, Sierra and Promise. What a great spot to get away from it all.
The furnishings are nicely appointed and the home comes fully equipped.
The owners Julee and Pete were wonderful. We were 100% pleased with our getaway! We will definitely be back again.
Thank you for sharing your slice of heaven with us!!

Me, my husband and Coco recently visited this cottage and loved it. Julee and Pete are wonderful hosts. They met us at the cottage the night we arrived. What a gorgeous place to stay. The bed was very comfortable and the cottage was very clean and maintained well. It was very quiet and peaceful. Breathtaking view of the rolling hills. We spent our days exploring around this place, swam at Laurel River Lake, took a trip to Cumberland Falls, paddled Wood Creek Lake and also walked trail to the Camp Wildcat Civil War Battlefield. We are really happy about finding this paradise and we miss our getaway . Thank you Julee and Pete for sharing your cottage with us. You make people happy. We hope to return soon :)
5 months later and I still can't get over how amazing my boyfriend and my getaway was here. This was the perfect little cottage.
Every morning/night we would go out and feed the horses and fishes and take a walk on the beautiful property. At night, we would snuggle up by the fireplace. I would recommend going to Lake Cumberland while visiting, it was gorgeous! It was all so peaceful and nice to get away from the crazy work life. I can't wait until we are fortunate enough to come back.
Thank you Julee and Pete for the wonderful experience!!!
My grandson and I had the honor to stay at the Blue gill cabin for a week and we loved it. The view from the deck is so beautiful. The humming birds were amazing, we did a video of them. No one would of believed there were so many. The cabin was spotless inside and outside. The pond was my grandsons favorite part. He spent a lot of time fishing and swimming in it. Pete went out of his way to help my grandson dig up worms. Julee made sure we had all the humming bird feeders filled and goof for the other birds and fish. If you want a peaceful place to stay and two amazing people to look over your needs this is the place for you. Julee and Pete the owners are like angels watching over you.
God Bless both of them.
The cabin was exactly like like it was described, I have already told family members that they need to go and stay there. We went to Cumberland falls and on a train ride in Sterns, Kentucky. The battle field down the street was very interesting. The dollar game going on in the cabin is a lot of fun also.
