This residence within a horse barn is a secluded property near Stanton, Kentucky. It is less than twenty miles to major attractions such as Natural Bridge, the Red River Gorge and the Daniel Boone National Forest; Cave Run Lake and Broke Leg Falls are within an hour's drive. It is the ideal spot to get away from the city and enjoy some of the most beautiful scenery in Kentucky. Pets considered upon request.

The space

This is a unique opportunity to bring your own horses. I have three paddocks with excellent grass in the summer months, two with a constant supply of fresh water, and three available stalls.

Guest access

You will have the entire barn, with the apartment upstairs and finished office space/spare bedroom/laundry room/half bath downstairs. There's plenty of space outside for parking a trailer, boat, or other large vehicles. There may be horses in one of the paddocks and, if so, someone will be on the property to care for the horses once or twice a day, who may access the downstairs barn area.

Interaction with guests

I will meet you personally at check-in and be available by phone during your stay.

Other things to note

The internet comes through a Verizon "mifi" device. This means that you have unlimited wireless internet, but it is not as fast as a broadband connection. The signal can be weaker due to cloudy weather or other conditions. Please note that there is no television. Your own cell phone might not have good reception inside the residence, depending on your phone carrier. There is a house phone for your use with free, unlimited calls to anywhere in the world.

This property is listed as unsuitable for children because the loft is only a safe sleeping space for teenagers or adults—it has no guard rail—but children who would sleep on the couch or babies who would sleep upstairs near you are welcome. There is a bassinet for babies under one year old, and the ladder to the loft can be removed when not in use so younger children can't climb up.
Please message me concerning extra charges for bringing horses. It is your responsibility to make sure the fences meet safe requirements for your horses when you arrive—they are a mix of three-board fence and three-strand Electrobraid through the creek line at the back of the property.

This was more than just a place to stay, it was an experience. Relaxing, beautiful, and welcoming... My daughter fell in love with the horses. A great library for the avid read to enjoy. It was very family friendly. A very short trip to East Fork Indian Creek for the fly fisherman and 20 minutes to Slade, Ky (Red River Gorge). Marsha has put a lot of thought into the tiny details. We can't wait to visit again.

This house was beautiful and in a peaceful and private location on a farm. The place is perfect for anyone looking for outdoor adventures and is just about 30 minutes away from the red river gorge.

If you want to check out from the world , this is your place. Lovely interior and the outdoors are great. Marsha has a gem in the "wilderness"!

This is a beautiful, scenic place to get away from it all. The loft is beautifully appointed, quiet and charming. The red river gorge was easily accessible as well from her location.

Marsha’s place is the perfect spot for a relaxing weekend. We explored the Gorge a little bit, but mostly enjoyed Marsha’s charming apartment and the peacefulness of the farm. Everything went well from check-in to check-out and we felt most welcome in Marsha’s space. Great experience overall!

Beautiful peaceful getaway where DIY meets high design. We loved our stay so much and being so close to the Gorge was another bonus. Highly recommend this lovely space.

This place was truly like out of a French County home magazine and has the most amazing feel. As someone who has traveled the world and stayed from 5 star to 1 star world wide this was by far the best place I have stayed. Once settled in you just never want to go back to your old life. The home is expertly equipped with everything a European cook would want, there is a garden for fresh herbs the works! The home has everything you would need to just rest and relax. Marsha is an expert host she came to visit me at the property to change a light bulb on a moments notice and was super kind. She made sure there was fresh water bottled and every small detail a traveler would need and of course forgot. Her energy is as authentic as the abode she has created and built herself. I think we all wish to live like this full time but only a few get this treasure daily. Marsha is now sharing this with the world. I might head home and build myself a small version her vision. I will be back for sure.
