“Peaceful and relaxing” I wasn't sure about this cabin until I got there, saw ot and spoke to the owner. It was an amazing weekend stay. Greg met me at the main road to ensure I got where I was going. He even walked the grounds and cabin with me so I knew how everything operated before I signed the final paperwork. He told some pretty amazing stories and was very attentive to any needs or questions. The river ran behind the property and there is opportunity to rent canoes, kayaks, a house boat or a pontoon! The driveway absolutely requires a 4 wheel drive to this property! I went to relax, get back to nature and enjoy some time in Hollerwood Park. This property was absolutely perfect and I had a blast! If you are looking for rustic and a little primitive this is the place to go! I absolutely will be back, possibly every month! Again Greg and Peggy are the best rental property owners I have ever run across. Greg makes you feel welcome, safe and right at home!

“An amazing cabin in the beautiful Kentucky woods” Even tho our arrival was later than expected, the owner,Larry, met us and guided us to the cabin. Very friendly and helpful, as it was our first time in Kentucky; The cabin was beautiful, very clean,cleaner than some 3 and 4 star hotels I have stayed in, and had every amenity you could think of. They even provided a two page list of restaurants, take out,grocery stores,etc as well as sights to see and things to do. We were driving an all wheel vehicle and had no problem with the road. Loved it, would defininitly return if we get the chance to visit Kentucky again.

“Great experience in a great location” I was in town with another couple and this property was a great experience - it was located in a historic location with great access to food and nightlife, as well as close to downtown for the event we were attending. Very comfortable and well appointed with everything we needed. Was also nice to have gated parking available. The owner was great to work with. All around was a great experience and a much better value than hotel rooms would have been for us.

“Great splurge for family get together” My wife and I rented this home for 10 days over Christmas 2008 as splurge for our family. We chose Louisville as it was a central gathering point for my two sons (along with wives and 5 grandchildren) and us. It was a truly beautiful home--great details like massive crown moldings and high ceilings, wood floors, many fireplaces. The owners had decked the home for the holidays- with a large cut tree & wreaths. They also left us basics like coffee, milk, eggs and fruit. The home was perfect for us- each couple had a large king bedroom with private bath, the kids shared the three remaining bedrooms. I wanted the luxury suite on the third floor, but my wife has a knee issue, so we ended up in the first floor master and my son and his wife took the suite. The kids were crazy about all the tv gaming equipment and the dvds. It was great to have the big family room on the second floor for the kids while the adults spent time together in the first floor living room areas with the tree lit and the fireplace on. The dining room was perfect for Christmas dinner (although we did have to bring in extra chairs from the kitchen and squeeze a bit). The kitchen is amazing-- huge, with a big table, every appliance you can think of and plenty of dishes, glassware, pots/pans. The one suggestion I would make for the kitchen is to write out directions for how to use the appliances--We had no idea how to operate the built in pasta sink and it took us quite awhile to figure out the Advantium. The neighborhood is full of big Victorian houses and trees. It was too cold to spend much time in the park, but we did walk the younger kids there several times to burn off energy. We loved Jack Fry's and went three times (restaurant 2 minute walk from house). My daughter in law lived at the Starbucks- a block away. Downtown is about a mile away with many other things to do (we particularly enjoyed making "blow your own" glass ornaments at the GlassWorks and seeing "A Christmas Carol"

Kentucky holidays

Kentucky is known as “The Bluegrass State” because the grass—thanks to its limestone soil—actually does look blue-purple in early spring. It’s a state blessed with an abundance of natural reserves, from lush forest parks to flowing streams and the longest cave system in the world—it's an adventurer's delight.

Find your base-camp holiday rental on Holiday Lettings and let the adventure begin!

About Kentucky

A state in the south east of America with the Appalachian Mountain range on its eastern side and the huge Ohio River in the north, Kentucky is pretty much horse country. Lexington, one of its biggest cities, is known as “The Horse Capital of the World” and home to the 1200 acre long working farm, Kentucky Horse Park. There are also several horse museums.

Kentucky has another global claim to fame with Owensboro being called “The Barbeque Capital of the World”, thanks to its annual International Bar-B-Q Festival every May. We'd definightly suggest going to sample some of the tasty local fare.

Thankfully, there are plenty of parks in which to burn off the BBQ calories. These include The Daniel Boone National Forest (named after the pioneer). Here outdoor enthusiasts can hike, boat, fish and camp to their hearts’ content.

What to do in Kentucky

One thing you can’t miss when in Kentucky is Mammoth Cave. At 340 miles long, it's the world's longest cave system and fascinating to explore, whatever age you happen to be. Guided tours are available but have to be booked in advance because they're so popular.

If you're near Louisville on the first Saturday in May then go to the famous Kentucky Derby. There's a whole museum devoted to this world-famous horse race and a fortnight's carnival to enjoy beforehand.

Try out a traditional Kentucky dish such as the Hot Brown (invented at the Brown Hotel in Louisville). More of a sandwich than a meal, it consists of a slice of toast layered with turkey, bacon and tomatoes then a drop of Mornay sauce.

You can also take a road trip along the bluegrass byways in pursuit of the eight distilleries on the Bourbon Trail. One of the first distilleries was in Knob Creek—where a young Abraham Lincoln just happened to grow up.

Top travel tips for Kentucky

Just in case you're tempted to crack a joke, there really was a colonel who came up with the idea for Kentucky Fried Chicken. His name was Harland Sanders and he sold it at his garage in North Corbin. But all over the state, there are amazing outlets for delicious fried chicken.

If you’re planning to visit the distilleries on the Bourbon Trail, it’s worth knowing that most close at 3pm. So set off early and pick a designated driver before you leave.

Spring and fall are the best times to visit Kentucky, especially if you're planning outdoor pursuits since the summers are hot (over 100F at times) and very humid.

Roads can be bad for driving in January and February when there's often lots of ice. So, make sure to time your trip right.

A large state with plenty to occupy your time, Kentucky is an ideal holiday destination whether you're after the outdoors, cowboy history, the food and drink or the general bonhomie of the residents there. It's proud of its Wild West past and, especially, those stunningly beautiful thoroughbred horses it breeds.

Start planning your trip today by finding a holiday rental on Holiday Lettings to suit all your needs. Just browse, book, and go!

Great place to stay!

We had a great time visiting the Gorge made even better by a comfy place to stay. The directions to get there were very detailed so we had no trouble finding the cabin. The driveway/road to get up to the cabins is a little steep so I’m glad we took the car and not the motorcycle. The cabin was clean and had everything it said it would. The bed was comfy too. We did reach out to the owners about there being some wasps in the mailbox. It was no issue to us as my husband is a beekeeper, we just wanted to let them know. I got a quick response and when we got back to the cabin, they were gone. I highly recommend staying at this cabin. It’s close to the Nada tunnel and the Natural Bridge. *We have Verizon cell service and we had service at the cabin.see more
Hill Top Hideaway #1
Perfect!

My husband and I were looking for a no-frills cabin in the natural bridge area that didn't require a 2 night minimum and this was perfect! The cabin was clean and they had most of the basics there for us (towels, plates, silverware, coffee, etc.). It was in a very remote area, and we didn't see or hear anyone else while we were there. The grill was another perk! We really enjoyed our stay and will be back in the future!see more
