Overview

About the property

One room cabin for two hidden in woods, intimate setting and atmosphere.

This cabin is totally private and secluded; different from most as it is built into a hill, giving you the impression that you are in a tree house.

As you arrive and park your vehicle, you will notice that the cabin is all by itself tucked away neatly in the woods. It is surrounded on all sides by pine trees.

This one of a kind cabin is ideal for couples who are searching for an intimate get away destination. It is perfect for celebrating anniversaries or any occasion that is special to the both of you.

The totally private, oversized hot tub is sure to be a wow factor. The hot tub is great year round, but Fall, Winter and Spring months are the best times of the year to enjoy it. Bask in the warmth and heat of the water on a cool, crisp evening as you observe the beautiful galaxy of the stars above. Perhaps the tops of the pine trees next to the deck will be swaying gently in the breeze which adds to the atmosphere of serenity. It's a sure way to relax and unwind from the stress of everyday life! Or, enjoy the hot tub by day and watch as the hummingbirds feed from their feeder just a few feet away!

When you arrive, you will walk down some steps to the cabin's front porch.

Inside, a peaceful and inviting setting awaits you. The walls and the ceiling are constructed of knotty pine and the floor of a beautiful hardwood.

The kitchen area is well equipped; coffee maker, toaster, blender, microwave and many other amenities to cook your meals.

The bedroom area has a queen sized bed with a memory foam mattress.

On the wall opposite of the bed, there is a 42' flat screen television. The television tilts in all directions so you can watch it from the bed or the very comfortable glider chairs in the living area. The television is equipped with Dish Net programming, including the local Lexington, KY channels.

The cabin also has unlimited WIFI.

The bathroom has a large shower stall, with vanity and mirror.

This cabin is owner maintained and cleaned; it is immaculate!

Take a short stroll down the hill next to the cabin and check out the Bass Pond. It is stocked with bass, blue gill and catfish for your fishing enjoyment. If you are not into fishing, you can build a fire in the fire ring and watch the glowing embers.

We are conveniently located a short 7 min. drive from Exit 49 off I-75. Only 10 miles north of London, 10 miles south of Mt. Vernon.

So don't delay another day.......book your special get a way today!

About Julee Skarka

My husband and I have lived in Kentucky since 2001, and we love it here. Formerly, we lived in northern IL.

We have another rental, a cottage, on the same property as this one, but it has a completely different 'flavor' than this one does. We built this cabin in response to what we believe travelers who have stayed in our cottage are looking for in a rental.......privacy, woods, water view, and a hot tub. So on that premise, we built this cabin.

We have a total of 70 acres more or less, and have some livestock. Three horses, two calves, and numerous chickens.

However, from the cabin, you will not be able to see anything but the woods that surround it.

Julee Skarka purchased this cabin in 2001

Why Julee Skarka chose Kentucky

My husband and I love rural living, and this is a great piece of property.

What makes this cabin unique

You have fishing, hiking, bird watching, and wildlife viewing all on the same property.

2 Days in the County

  • 5 of 5

When we go on vacation, we usually go to cities and stay in hotels. We wanted to something different this time and it worked out great. We spent two relaxing nights in Julee's perfect cabin in the Kentucky woods. Julee gave us a warm welcome, and it was clear when we entered our cabin that she had thought of everything. The cabin was spotless, well-appointed and "user friendly". We especially enjoyed soaking in the Jacuzzi and watching the swaying trees behind the cabin deck.

We also enjoyed touring southern Kentucky. We spent an afternoon at Cumberland Gap National Park and then had a tasty dinner at the Backporch Smokehouse in Mt. Vernon on Julee's recommendation.

We hope to visit again some day.

Serene, beautiful and clean!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin exceeded our expectations. The pictures did not do it justice. It was BEAUTIFUL. Pristine condition. We really enjoyed the hot tub on the deck and watching the pine trees sway in the breeze. The pond and fire pit were very nice...a much needed break away from every day stress!

Lovely cabin hidden in the woods!

  • 5 of 5

My husband surprised me with a two-night getaway in March at this lovely little cabin tucked in a pine forest. We loved the one room cabin with deck and hot tub. The pond and fire pit provided hours of fun even if we did not catch fish:) While it did not bother us, some people may need to be aware that there are steps to get in and out of the cabin the walk to the pond involves going up a down a hill. Hosts were friendly and cabin was extra clean.
