Property type cabin

Photos and Description of this East Bernstadt holiday cabin

One room cabin for two; Totally secluded and private with a hot tub under stars!

This one of a kind cabin is ideal for a couple who are searching for an intimate get away destination. Its an amazing location to celebrate a birthday, anniversary, honeymoon, or a much needed get away from the stress of everyday life.

One feature that makes this cabin unique from others is that it is built into a hill, giving you the impression of being in a tree house. You can actually reach out and touch some of the trees as you stand on the back deck!

Autumn is upon us, and the completely private, oversized hot tub is sure to be a wow factor with our guests. Fall is one of the best times of year to enjoy a hot tub! Bask in the warmth and heat of the clear water on a cool, crisp evening as you observe the beautiful galaxy of the stars above you. 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.

The leaves on the trees in the nearby woods will soon turn vivid colors of reds, yellows, browns and orange so you catch a great color show from the hot tub, or just sitting in your chairs on the back deck.

After you arrive and park your vehicle, you will walk down some steps to the cabin's front porch. You will notice the cabin is located by itself within pine trees, and it is totally secluded on all sides. While you are at the cabin, you will not see any buildings or people at all.

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.

You will enjoy watching the warm glow of the fireplace (electric), which sets a mood for romance.

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 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.

Bass Cabin East Bernstadt Ky.

  • 5 of 5

Very well kept property. Quite and scenic. Cabin was decorated in fall colors and was beautiful. Cabin was very clean and was everything we needed with the back deck, hot tub, comfortable bed and everything one needs in the kitchen and bath. Pete and Julee were really nice and welcoming to us. This little 2 day get away was just what we needed to recharge. We hope to be back!

Nice and relaxing

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in Bass cabin. The hot tub is definitely the best part at night. It's very private and quiet. We enjoyed fishing in the pond behind the cabin. I thought the bed was comfy but my hubby disagreed :-) Overall I would highly recommend for a romantic weekend!

Cozy and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The property is perfect for any couple to get away together. The cabin is beautiful and placed in a cool way being tucked into the trees. The hot tub is great. The area doesn't have a whole lot to do but there is enough to get you out of the cabin if you want. I highly recommend bringing an ATV if possible because there are plenty of trails around the area that would be perfect. Overall it was a great 2 night stay for my girlfriend and I.

Owner's Response: Thank you for this fine review. ATVs are popular in this part of KY. There is an ATV park within a couple miles of this rental with hundreds of trails from easy to very challenging. We also allow people to use their ATVs on the farm property. Other attractions in the area include Cumberland Falls (Niagra of the South), Renfro Valley musical entertainment, Levi Jackson Zip line park as well as others.

Wonderful, beautiful, clean cabin in a very private setting! Great location for hiking!

  • 5 of 5

This cabin was perfect for celebrating our anniversary. The renters were great to work with and very prompt with every response. We loved the fresh wood scent inside the cabin, and enjoyed the natural setting of the cabin while also enjoying how clean it was indoors.

Very good location for visiting Cumberland Falls for hiking, horseback riding and general site seeing.

Also, the beautiful sights of Natural Bridge are not too far from this location! Only about an hour and a half.

We would love to visit again someday and would also recommend the Bass Cabin to other couples who want to enjoy a ice getaway!
