Photos and Description of this East Bernstadt holiday cabin

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



During the month of January, we close down and winterize the hot tub at this cabin so it will not available for use during this time. However, you can still stay at this very private, romantic, totally secluded cabin tucked away in the woods! You will still enjoy unlimited WIFI, flat screen television with Dish, a queen size bed, furnished kitchen, linens, towels, etc. See the Rates section to find out the discount you can receive for this cabin during the off season. (The cabin and the hot tub are available this month (Dec., 2016), at the standard rate).

This one of a kind cabin is ideal for couples who are searching for an intimate get away destination. It is decorated in the Christmas theme to help you get into the holiday spirit.

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

Winter is almost upon us, and the totally private, oversized hot tub is sure to be a wow factor. Fall and winter months are the best times of the year to enjoy the hot tub. 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!

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

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 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.

I miss it!

  • 5 of 5

The property is exactly as advertised and expected. It was a wonderful little spot to just hang out with my husband for a few days, and the hot tub is awesome. It's only been a few days since our stay, and I already miss it!

We plan to stay here again.

Really Enjoyed Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

A weekend at this secluded cabin in the woods was just what we needed to recharge the batteries. The cabin was decorated for fall and very nicely maintained. Close enough to the highway to easily visit the surrounding attractions. Loved it!

  • 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!
