    The fisherman theme and decor, antique pool table and the upper deck with a stone wood-burning fireplace make this home an all-time guest favorite.

    On the main level, the large, open floor plan combines the living room, kitchen, and dining area. Vaulted ceilings open up the space even more, allowing you to move freely from room to room while chatting with your travel companions.

    Two queen beds and a full bathroom featuring a Jacuzzi tub inset in a bay window, plus a separate shower are also on the main level for your convenience.

    A huge laundry room with ironing board and iron is also located downstairs, along with the master suite and full bathroom with shower.

    Back upstairs, you’re sure to love the huge, covered deck with patio table and chairs, a gas grill, porch swing and a wood-burning stone fireplace. Here, you can relax next to the fire, be lulled by the soothing sound of the creek below, and sip your favorite beverage while keeping your eyes peeled for woodpeckers, wild turkeys, deer, chipmunks, a resident owl, and a variety of birds among the trees and plants.

    After each adventurous day, you’ll look forward to retreating to one of the 3 private bedrooms for a good night’s rest. The master bedroom features a king-sized bed, while the other 2 bedrooms offer queen-sized beds. Additional sleeping is available on the daybed with twin-sized trundle bed in the downstairs rec room.

    -- THE LOCATION --

    This beautiful cabin is situated in the lower portion of a mountain area, surrounded by a variety of trees for ultimate privacy. From the cabin, you’ll be able to see a creek flowing down from the higher part of the mountains, past the cabin and into a catch-and-release pond with a dock. Endless hiking and rock climbing opportunities can be found in the surrounding area. With so much tranquility surrounding this home, you’re sure to feel rejuvenated by the end of your vacation.

    While you’ll love relaxing at the cozy mountain cabin, you’ll still want to venture out and take advantage of this home’s amazing location.

    The famous Nada Tunnel entrance to the Red River Gorge is just 10 minutes away from the property, so be sure to head that way for countless hiking trails, rock climbing, fishing, canoeing, kayaking, swimming, sight-seeing, bird-watching and numerous opportunities for photography!

    Drive through to see the Red River, countless varieties of trees, flowers, plants, and outcroppings of rocks – or stop to hike or catch site of deer, turkeys and other wildlife. For a memorable experience, hike to the famous swinging bridge over the Red River, located up river from the Jump Rock and Swimming Hole.

    Natural Bridge State Resort Park features the Natural Bridge, a million-years-old sandstone arch, which is accessible by hiking up and down the huge mountain or by taking a slow, easy ride on the sky lift. Additionally, at the Hemlock Lodge at Natural Bridge, there is an enormous outdoor pool, kiddie pool and picnic area that everyone is sure to enjoy from Memorial Day to Labor Day. For water activities, like fishing, kayaking, canoeing and stand up paddle boarding, make your way to nearby Mill Creek Lake.

    See the mountains from a whole new perspective when you go zip lining over the tree tops for a challenging thrill in Cliffview, or drive through the Gorge to the family-friendly zip line spot in Frenchburg, where everyone from kids to grandpa can have a ball!

    If you’re looking for even more thrills, visit Torrett Falls Climbing Adventure or Kentucky Rock & Adventure Guides for world-famous rock climbing and rappelling! Both offer lessons and guided climbs.

    Kids will love the Reptile Zoo, while teenagers will jump on the opportunity to visit the Thrillsville obstacle course in nearby Slade. New to Thrillsville in 2017 is kayaking through the 100-year-old limestone cave, and a putt putt golf that kids and even the grandparents will enjoy.

    If you love horseback riding, Whispering Valley Riding Trails are just 35 minutes away in Beattysville, where you will see waterfalls, ponds, rock outcroppings as you ride under the canopy of trees. The views are sure to be amazing!

    Great restaurants are also nearby! Be sure to check out Miguel’s Pizza, a classic restaurant that has been around for 30 years, Red River Rockhouse, a newer restaurant owned by young rock climbers, and Sky Bridge Station, which features gourmet hot dogs and beer on tap.

    The property was better then the pictures. The house was clean and I loved the deck. My only complaint is that there isn’t any seating downstairs patio, to listen to the creek. Would definitely stay here again.

    We had a great weekend at this cabin! Everything was sparkling clean :) Would agree with other reviews that the cleaning fee is a little steep considering they have you do much of the cleaning prior to checkout.

    Amazing and beautiful cabin, my family and I couldn’t get enough if the beautiful creek sounds along with the view. Very accommodating, anything we needed the host was there every step of the way. The fireplace and deck was a hit for the adults and and the space and pool table for the kids. Great hiking and a lot of stuff to do, i will definitely be back.

    We loved our weekend stay.Loved the back porch with the outdoor fireplace. We hang out there a lot. The rental company was very attentive.We never could get the downstairs gas fireplace to work. Someone did come out to look at it, but he was not able to fix it either. Overall, we were very pleased with our stay and would definitely come back.*This review was originally posted on HomeAway for a stay in February 2019

    Our cabin was beautiful. The area was so serene. The hot tub was just what we needed after our hikes and so many activities. My only complaint was there was an abundance of ants in the kitchen. We even found them on ourselves and we didn't have any open food out. Other than that, which we just kept cleaning up and killing them as we found them, the space and the location was so central to everything we did! It was really spectacular. A must, experience.

    We loved our weekend stay at the Lakewood. Great hiking in Red River Gorge followed by a wonderful dip in the Hottub. The view yoo the ravine while inside the Hottub is outstanding.The outdoor fireplace is a nice touch, but it took three of us ex-boy Scouts to get the green, wet wood lit.

    We've stayed in a lot of rental vacation homes, but this was one of the best. The cabin was in great shape, wonderfully furnished (even good cookware!) and in an outstanding location. The surroundings were beautiful and access to the various Red River Gorge activities was super convenient. HIGHLY recommended.

    Reviewed by: Stephen B. on


    booked this trip for my wife, two adult children and their significant others. From the moment we booked months ago to the moment we locked the door to leave the Cabin (it's much more than a cabin), the experience was wonderful. The setting the home, amenities, the fireplace on the deck, shuffle board, babbling brook, and the sounds of nature were a perfect place for us to get family time. We took the quick trip to the Natural Bridge State Park and that was amazing to hike or take the chairlift if you prefer. We also took a 80 minute drive for a couple bourbon distillery visits. Even if you are not a bourbon fan its amazing. We also took a drive to Churchill Downs for a tour and also saw a races which was a good take (it is a 2+ hour drive) but it was family time. But the trips paled in comparison to the time together on the deck of the cabin. Great setting, great fun. Thank you.

    Beautiful Area. Home in need of a few improvements

    Reviewed by: Anonymous on


    My husband and I, along with 4 friends, recently returned from staying at Lakewood Cabin for a long weekend. It was our first time to the Red River Gorge area, and the location was beautiful. The cabins are situated within the neighborhood in such a way that they each have a nice amount of privacy. They are within close proximity to the major Red River Gorge sights. We enjoyed a hike and a trip to the Natural Bridge State Park. It is also within an hour or so from the beginning of the Bourbon Trail, which we also took time to visit one day. The directions for arriving to the property, and for check-in, were excellent. Clear and concise. Communication with Dale and Katy were also excellent, and responses were fast! The home was stocked with nice pots and pans which we enjoyed using as we cooked our dinners each night. The home was clean and ready for our arrival. Some of what drew our group to this area, and this home, was the location and also the amenities. The outdoor wood burning fireplace was a draw, and with nicer weather, the upper deck would be a great place for eating outside as the house has a very nice patio set. We wanted a house with a hot tub and with a pool table. The hot tub got a lot of use during our visit, and the pool table was in excellent condition! We really looked forward to playing shuffleboard, however the shuffleboard table had no sand in it, and all the pucks were in very bad shape, rusted and warped from weather, as was the wood table itself. Though our stay was good overall, we did leave noting a few things. The upstairs had two bedrooms, one of which was very difficult to regulate the temperature of. It was freezing while the rest of the house was very warm. We needed to add 2 blankets over the comforter just to stay warm during the night. The bathroom upstairs is in need of a few repairs, such as the glass shower door hanging poorly on the hinges causing a lot of noise, the trim around the shower being in bad shape from water damage. Downstairs, the lighting over the pool table did not work at all. With a little TLC, this home could be more inviting if we were to come back to the area again. We greatly appreciated Dale's and Katy's prompt response to questions, and doing their best to resolve issues quickly when they did arise.

    We rented the cabin for a group get away. Unfortunately, it rained the entire time, but the accommodations and cabin comforts made the entire trip enjoyable. The outdoor fireplace on the top deck over looking the stream in the back made for a relaxing and memorable experience.

    Overall a pretty nice place to stay. I thought the cleaning fees were high since we had to do most of the cleanup. I also didn't think that we should have to pay for wood for the fireplace. Already paid over $800 just for 2 days.

    Manager's Response: Thank you for this feedback, we are glad you overall enjoyed your stay. The cleaning fee the homeowner charges is standard for this kind of vacation rental, as it covers the cost of getting the home cleaned and ready for each booking. As for the firewood, the homeowner personally gets a large load of fatwood and delivers it directly to the home, so the fee for that is to cover the cost of the wood that the homeowner is providing. We do apologize that you were disappointed by the cleaning fee and hope you enjoyed this home nonetheless.

    Wonderful Cabin!

    My family and I just recently stayed over Labor Day weekend at Lakewood Cabin. Katy was excellent to work with. She spoke personally with my husband on multiple occasions to make sure we had all the information we needed for our upcoming trip, as well as and to answer any questions that we may have had. Great customer service! Upon arriving the cabin was pristine and well stocked with all the amenities we needed. We had a great time playing pool and shuffle board, the hot tub sat right outside the bottom level, right outside the rec room door and was covered which was very nice. The location was very convenient to all the attractions we wanted to visit. We will definitely we staying at Lakewood again
