Our cozy cabin on the river is a place of peace, 15 minutes from downtown Bowling Green. Our retreat is nestled in a canopy of trees along the beautiful Barren River. This is a wonderful location for a romantic get-away, or for serenity seekers. We don't have WiFi or cell service, so prepare for an unplugged experience, with nature flourishing all around you. We insist our guests enjoy a 5 star experience, so if there's any accommodation you'd like provided, ask, and we'll do everything we can!
Our 750+ square foot cabin, with a studio layout, has large glass windows in the bedroom and bathroom that allow natural light to shine in. Our space is equipped with a full kitchen (except microwave), flat screen TV, 9 local channels, & a DVD player for watching movies. Enjoy amenities such as a full bathroom with a claw foot tub and 32" shower stall, king-sized memory foam bed, water-view dining (inside & out), campsite, bonfire pit (must purchase your own firewood), deck with a large table & four chairs, and a charcoal grill (must provide your own lighter fluid and charcoal). There are also 2 tiki torches that set an amazing ambience on the patio area (bring tiki torch fuel).
Relax in a hammock (bring your own), jump in a kayak (bring your own), on-site camping available, fish from several accessible locations (you'll need a KY fishing license), enjoy the river view with provided binoculars through the floor to ceiling windows, or relax in the claw foot tub. There's something for everyone at this magical place!
Entering the River:
If you choose to enter the water, by signing this agreement and renting our place, you are indicating that you understand the inherent danger of the River, and you agree to enter the water at your own risk. There is never a life guard on duty, and enjoying the river by entering the water can be dangerous. The River's water level can rise rapidly, so be careful. There are posted signs that indicate the danger of the River (Swim at Your Own Risk), and we ask that you be mindful, and do not leave trash, nor throw debris into the water. There is a life vest located near the Swim at Your Own Risk signs, to use only in the event of an emergency. We suggest that you bring your own personally fitted life vests if you plan to enter the water. Again, if you enter the water, you do so at your own risk.
The Indoor Fire Place:
We ask that you use the central heat and air for setting your desired comfort level in the home. We DO NOT allow anyone to start a fire inside the home - this is for insurance reasons. Do not start a fire inside the home, in the fireplace, wood-burning stove, or anywhere else inside the home. If you do so, you are in violation of the rental agreement. You may enjoy a fire in the fire pit that is located outside, just make sure the fire is out when you stop tending it.
Interaction with guests
We want you to enjoy your personal space, and will only meet if needed. Property address and key location will be provided on the day of check-in.
Other things to note
There is a FIRE EXTINGUISHER under the sink. Use it only if there is a fire emergency.
We have an outdoor fire pit, but please bring wood purchased from a local retailer. This is in effort to preserve the forest on the property, and avoid the emerald ash borer from finding its way to our forest from wood brought in from different places. Please do not chop wood on the stone patio, wooden deck, stairs, or concrete areas. If you do so, and damage the property, you will be held financially accountable. Thank you for treating our place just as you would your own. =)
We have a Keurig, so bring your K-Cups. We do not have a traditional coffee maker, or microwave. So..., bring your K-Cups. =)
We welcome your pets as our guests, just let us know upon booking. We charge $10/day per pet.
To fish on our land you must purchase a KY fishing license (Walmart, $20, 11 miles away).
ABSOLUTELY NO SMOKING INSIDE THE HOUSE!
You must bring your own firewood and tiki torch fuel.
That about covers it, you're gonna love it here.
