About Alice Rice

Log home built as Mom's dream. Originally a gathering place for the 8 children, spouses, grandchildren, friends. Mom and Dad moved for a night and stayed for their lifetime. Much advice was provided while rocking on the porch or taking a walk in the woods, or fishing in the pond. Described as serene and peaceful by some. Adventurous and lively by others. Pool and hot tub available in season. View of 400 acre farm and surrounding foothills.

Alice Rice purchased this cabin in 1989

Why Alice Rice chose Taylorsville

We've had every kind of event you can imagine here. Marriage encounters, weddings, funerals. Everytime, incredible memories are made and life-long friendships formed.

What makes this cabin unique

Many memories have been made sitting and talking on the porch. On bourbon trail, avail for KY Derby

Wonderful property. Had a great time with my two young children. Close to bourbon distilleries and convenient location to get to either Downtown Bardstown or Louisville. We will be back.

Excellent weekend get away

  • 5 out of 5
Went down for a bachelor weekend and thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Upon entering the cabin we were amazed at the beauty of the hand hune beams that make up the cabins structure. Very neat design. With the intentions of touring the Bourbon Trail this made for a key location to begin the trip. Later in the evening we enjoyed the fire pit south of the cabin over looking a cattle pasture. We also took advantage of the fireplace indoors, that really set off the evening. In the morning there was a beautiful sunrise no one would want to miss. Overall it was a magnificent find and a trip I would love to make again.

Relaxing getaway in Boubon Country!

  • 4 out of 5
Thank you so much to Alice and George for a lovely 2-night stay at your country cabin. The 6 of us (me and my fiancé, his parents, his sister, and our 8-month-old baby) were very comfortable there and had plenty of room. The cabin is open concept, but for groups of family and friends, not a problem! We used the cabin as our central location for visiting a couple of distilleries (Makers Mark, Willett, and Jim Beam), exploring Bardstown, and taking a train ride. The cabin has a nicely stocked kitchen, the bathroom has plenty of space and toiletries/towels for the guests, and everything was very clean! We enjoyed visiting with the two friendly dogs that roamed the property, and they loved to sit with us out on the deck overlooking the hills -- a great view. The dogs barked quite a bit at night when we were there...assuming there was some exciting wildlife they were noticing in the surrounding woods. We are dog people so didn't mind much, but those that aren't used to canine companions might ask George to keep them corralled. :) We would recommend the cabin to others looking for a similar quiet getaway!! Thank you!

Owner's Response: thanks for your comments. the dogs can definitely bark at night but we can put them in the garage to avoid that.

Will definitely want to go back!

  • 5 out of 5
The entire experience was amazing, the cabin, the view, the bourbon trail... Wow! Waking up early, watching the fog roll in with a cup of coffee, seemed straight out of a movie. The cabin had everything we needed, literally just bring food and you're set! Campfires at night with the occasional visit from the very friendly farm dogs. I wish we could of kept him! But anyways, this is truly a great place!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. We want all of our guests to "take it easy" as we did on the porch with Mom and Dad. Seems like they were with you! Please come again. I think it seems too good to be true that all you need bring is food! We want it to be easy so you do t have to pack and unpack your car.

Fantastic Basecamp for the Bourbon Trail!

  • 5 out of 5
The charming cabin proved the perfect basecamp for hitting the Jim Beam, Heaven Hill, and Maker's Mark distilleries—all in one day! It slept seven guys comfortably and provided ample room for board games, cooking, video games, and more. We took in the gorgeous view at sunrise, and made use of the pool and fire pit at sunset. Furthermore, Alice and George were very helpful in providing local tips and trip ideas! Thanks to both for an excellent getaway weekend!
