I may be able to give a better price for bookings during the week over the summer.

I decorated my cabin with a personal touch which I hope you find inviting. I want to give potential renters that same personal touch. I will answer all your questions and let you know what you'll need to bring to the cabin along with what is there to make your visit a wonderful time. For more info please call or text Sue 513-833-1413. I will get back with you as soon as my job allows and take care of the booking process for you. First come first serve I promise.

About Sue. Best way to reach is by text. Will get back to u soon as my job allows!

My name is Sue. I've always wanted a cabin. Two things it had to have - all feet on the ground (not hanging off a cliff) I'm afraid of heights! I wanted to be able to walk out the door and just start walking. Plenty of area for that. I love our cabin and hope you will too. The cabin was named after the street that our family's home of 36 years was on. We thought it had a good ring to it for a cabin. We purchased the cabin in 2011 and did a lot of work on it. A great get away for us and ours and you and yours. I've put my heart into this cabin and I think you'll see that as soon as you pull up to it . It' a great spot to call home base after a great day of exploring the Gorge or to stay put, relax and just enjoy. Please do not hesitate to call me with any questions. If you don't catch me, leave a message and I will call you back as soon as possible.

I came to the Red River Gorge for the first time, about a year and a half ago. Even with my fear of heights I fell in love. With that and the lifetime desire to have a cabin getaway - everything just fell into place. It was meant to be!

What makes this cabin unique

I love the location of The Retswood. It's secluded - but not too secluded. I love the lake and listening to the bullfrogs at night. I had the porch screened-in, top to bottom, to be able to sit outside without all those pesky bugs. I'm sure some will find their way in but that should be minimal. We have put several upgrades inside such as leather couches, flat screen TV, New refrigerator and gas stove. Oh! not to mention and awesome 6 person hot tub overlooking the lake.

It was fine. I would have preferred to have it cleaner, especially the bathroom. The one disappointment was that we had searched " lakefront" and the cabin was on a small pond. The cabin was lovely however and we enjoyed the screened in porch. We have since had friends who rented a condo in California through VRBO and when they got there it didn't exist. It was a fraud through VRBO. That makes us skeptical to rent through VRBO again.

Peaceful and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This little cabin is so much more than it appears. The interior is spacious and accommodating to a close family. We loved the house and the wildlife outside was worth every penny. Everyday we saw turkeys, deer and of course the fish in the lake. The location was great as well. It's close to everything, bout 30 minutes at the most, and there are some great things to do. We highly recommend the Whisper Valley Trails horseback riding. The ladies are so personable and the horses are extremely sweet and their individual personalities shine bright. I would also highly recommend Red River Adventures for canoeing along the Red River. It is located right in Red River Gorge State Park. The staff is awesome and it is a really cool, and fun adventure. We'll worth the cost. I would suggest going through the Nadal Tunnel as well, it's a very unique experience and it is the faster way to get to the river canoeing. The natural beauty of both parks is hard to beat. Walking the trails is a great form of exercise and adventure for the whole family!!

The Retswood cabin was clean cozy and had everything we needed for a wonderful weekend. We enjoyed sitting on the screened porch snd hearing the birds and looking at the beautiful pond and trees around it. Furniture was nice decor was cozy cabin. Enjoyed the tv and cooking meals in the kitchen. We hiked in the Red River Gorge and took home awesome arch photos.

Retswood could have been called "Restwood"

  • 5 of 5

Loved this cabin! Had all the sights, sounds and amenities one would hope for in a "cabin vacation". Loved the screened in porch with a swing and loved the hot tub! We were able to watch deer from the porch while we ate dinner, we enjoyed the sounds of birds and frogs as we sat around the campfire. Our boys had fun fishing in the adjacent pond. The cabin was very clean, well supplies and the beds were comfortable. Easy drive to the nearby attractions and hiking trails of Red River Gorge (the gorge was breathtaking as well). The owner Sue was FANTASTIC to work with...definitely a 5 STAR experience for our family. We will be back!

Cozy cabin with hot tub

  • 4 of 5

This cabin is in a great very out-of-the-way location in the woods on a pond. It has two downstairs bedrooms, and a great loft with four beds in it. The hot tub easily fits four people, and relaxing in it is perfect for the body after a long difficult hike in the Red River Gorge. The kitchen is fully equipped with a table for six, and the living area is cozy with a huge TV screen.
