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!

The space

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).

Guest access

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 absolutely loved our long weekend at Shelby and Jeryn's cabin. It sits about 30 feet above the river, and the view and experience from the bedroom and bath are one of being in a treehouse. It is the perfect size for a romantic getaway, and we appreciated that they allow pets -- we brought our two small dogs, who enjoyed scampering around the steep hillside to the river. We cooked all our meals there, and the kitchen was well-equipped for that. It is a short drive to Bowling Green, and about 50 minutes to Mammoth Cave National Park, where we hiked every day. Thanks for the great accommodations!

My wife and I stayed here for a quick weekend getaway. We loved the private scenic location with the beautiful view of the river from the bedroom. The huge windows made it feel almost like sleeping outside. Shelby and Jeryn were great hosts and communicated very quickly. The whole house was nicely furnished and the kitchen had all the ammneties needed for making a meal. Truly enjoyed our stay and would love to come back.

This is a hidden gem! It’s great to unplug and get away but it’s was awesome to have WKU and city of Bowling Green so close! So much to do with caves, hiking, shopping, and anything else you could think of!!! We loved it and almost feel like we know and are friends with Shelby and Jeryn. They were so easy to talk with and ready to help and pass on hot spots to visit! My kiddos all left them personalized notes and had a blast! The river is amazing and so close that my kiddos kept referring to us being “on” the river! If you love Kentucky, check this place out! Cute as could be and we felt right at home. We are so appreciative to the host and hostess for sharing their spectacular vacation home! Thanks again Shelby and Jeryn for giving us an opportunity to make memories that will last a lifetime! So cutely decorated too, we did not want to leave!
