Many, many guests have spent the night at our log cabin since 1992. Honeymooners, schools, churches, & families have all enjoyed the tranquil, quaint setting. Nestled between the rolling hills in Southeastern Grant County Kentucky, I'm sure you'll agree, this is one of the most peaceful, relaxing places you will ever visit. With the birds chirping, the butterflies fluttering, & the whitetail deer grazing in the fields. This is a country experience you won't soon forget.

By being in the right place at the right time in 1991, I saved our cabin from the torch. I overheard a neighbor telling the local country storekeeper, if someone didn't come and get that old log cabin, he was going to burn it. I spoke up and told him I would love to have it. It took all summer to get it dismantled, and moved to the current location. Reconstruction began in November of 1991, and the first guests spent the night in July 1992.
My first intentions were to use the cabin as a workshop for my basket & chair weaving. Then someone suggested it might be a nice place for city folks to getaway to the country. As the saying goes, and the rest is history.
Our cabin originally sat on property along the Cynthiana Turnpike, known now as Kentucky Hwy. 36.
During the Civil War three battles were fought in the Cynthiana area.
Soldiers traveling through the area often stopped for food and fresh horses.
In the 1920s, my mother taught school in a one room school house around two miles from the cabin . She roomed with an elderly lady in the community, who could remember the Civil War, and often spoke of soldiers stopping by her parents' home, and other homes in the area, to get food and fresh horses. Our cabin from the 1850s era, was without a doubt, one of the homes visited by the soldiers.
