The space

A peaceful retreat to call your own, nestled in the lush hardwood forest of Eastern Kentucky. This handcrafted open concept cottage sits on 250 acres overlooking a creek, surrounded by miles of hiking and nature trails available for your enjoyment.

As you drive up the private lane to Creekside Cottage your cares just melt away. It is the perfect place to relax and unwind, away from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The sights and sounds of nature surround you and you can choose what to do… sit on the deck and take it all in, write your next novel, cook a gourmet meal, bird watch, hike, mountain bike, or star gaze. While you are here, you may also want to visit some of the unique natural areas and parks, museums, and antique shops nearby. Please refer to the Guidebook for area attractions.

From the cottage you have complete privacy and cannot see our home, which is an easy quarter mile walk down the lane if you need us. Cell service in the “holler” is spotty to nonexistent, for this reason we provide a landline and wifi for your use.

The cottage was hand-built and has many custom details that make it feel like home. The space is handicap accessible, with an open concept kitchen, dining and living area and a roll-in shower, with wide doors to the bathroom and bedrooms. Please note, at this time there is not a ramp onto the deck.

The wrap around deck is spectacular, with 600 square feet of outdoor living space, including Adirondack chairs, grill, and cozy screened-in porch which is perfect for reading a book and listening to the night sounds.

You are welcome to enjoy the nature trails and old logging roads on the property.

When enjoying the cottage we will assist you in any way we can, otherwise we will honor your privacy. If we are available, we would be happy to give you a tour of the wood working shop and other projects on the farm, such as our organic garden and on-going hardwood timber stand improvements. You can even help us if you'd like! We are happy to show you our residence as well as the workshop and surrounding buildings, however, we ask that you work out a time to do this with us. This is for your safety.

Our property is in a rural setting in the Appalachian foothills of Eastern Kentucky. We are located 3 miles from the quaint town of Vanceburg where you can find a grocery, pharmacy, gas station, cafe and carry-out. Note, we would suggest BYOB if you are looking for craft beer or good wine.

You will need a car as there is no public transportation available. There are many wonderful places to visit in the area, please refer to the Guidebook for additional information.

Our family enjoyed every part of the beautifully handcrafted creekside cabin! Our hosts were friendly, down to earth, helpful and knowledgeable. We took a day trip to Carter Caves and hiked to the Natural bridge and Raven bridge.
