Overview

About the property

Secluded Forest Retreat, 3 Bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath, Sleeps 10,

Rock Haven is a beautiful and modern multilevel cabin built in front of a limestone cliff that towers above it, located in a secluded forest valley adjacent to Natural Bridge State Park and near the Red River Gorge. It easily accommodates 10 persons. Come and feel the excitement of being in the middle of the forest, enjoy the beautifully designed wood interior, and relax in this comfortable vacation home, that is supplied with Wifi and a landline phone. If you are interested in staying at Rock Haven, click on "Send a message" or click on "Request to Book." We accept payment by check, by which you can avoid the website service fee.

The lovely spaces in Rock Haven include four bedrooms including one on the middle level, one on the lower level with two beds, and the two loft bedrooms (both without doors) , 2 ½ baths, a whirlpool room with a view of the rocky cliff, a fully equipped and roomy kitchen, an inviting spacious living room, a fantastic sun-room to relax in, a front deck surrounded by the tall trees, and a back deck almost within arm’s reach of the cliff. All linens, blankets, and towels, and some basic kitchen items such as spices and napkins are provided so all you need to bring is food, drink and personal items to have the perfect stay. The deep woods and the cliff-side location moderate the summer heat and winter cold and ensure that only the sounds of nature are heard. In addition, the location is close to the area's attractions--the many arches, hiking trails, scenic drives, and a surprising variety of restaurants.

Cell phone service is available--best via Verizon, spotty for other providers unless one goes to the top of the hill. There is Wifi, a TV and a DVD player, but no cable service. Feel free to stream or bring your own movies for family entertainment. You can choose not to use the Wifi, and maybe discover, or experience again, how rewarding it is to quietly sit on the deck and to enjoy the sounds of the forest both in early morning and in the evenings. This is a wonderful way to experience nature. You can see more pictures at http://picasaweb.google.com/arvinvos/RockHaven.

About Corrie Vos

My husband, Arvin Vos, and I were living in Bowling Green, KY, where he taught philosophy and I practiced psychology, when together with our daughter we bought Rock Haven. We have had marvelous family times there with our five children and grandchildren. Now that we have retired to Michigan and our children have established themselves in places across the country, we especially enjoy spending time together at Rock Haven.

Corrie Vos purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Corrie Vos chose Kentucky

The moment we saw Rock Haven, built almost against a towering cliff, surrounded by forest, built of local lumber inside and out, we knew we wanted to own it. Over the years we have added several rooms, modified the most rustic features to increase comfort and convenience, and built a beautiful oak spiral stairs leading up to the upper level. We are happy to share it with our guests, which defrays some of our costs, and provides some work for our housekeepers.

What makes this cabin unique

We love our beautiful and comfy cabin, the rock climbing opportunities, the cycling in the Gorge, eating at restaurants like Miguel's pizza and Rock House, and the fantastic scenery and hiking, but what we love most is that it is a quiet and peaceful place to enjoy being in nature.

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at Rock Haven Cabin for 2 nights for a mini-honeymoon and we couldn't have been happier we chose Rock Haven! I think the most impressive part about the cabin, and there are many, was the cleanliness. Every nook and cranny was spic and span, including the bannisters and ceilings...not a single cobweb! - when staying in other cabins we always noticed this to be a particular problem with cabin rentals. As others have mentioned, the cabin is close to Natural Bridge, Red River Gorge and eateries/shops for the essentials, yet very secluded. The cabin is very large and would comfortably sleep 10. The kitchen is well stocked and the beds and pillows are fresh and cozy. We loved all of the windows letting in natural light.

Corrie was a dream to deal with! My new husband and I ran into snag right before our visit that could've made our trip impossible but she was extremely accommodating so that we didn't have to cancel. We just couldn't be pleased with the entire vacation!

Thank you Corrie for sharing your wonderful cabin with us!

Hidden Gem

  • 5 of 5

Chosen because it was a central location for a family reunion. What we discovered was a fantastic place. The hiking left us astonished at every turn. Check out the rock formation right behind the house. We will be returning here again, soon.

The cabin was very clean and comfortable. The owners were very nice

  • 5 of 5

There was so much to see and do around the cabin yet it was secluded enough where you had privacy and relaxation. My family and I had a wonderful time and I would definitely recommend staying here.

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We had 10 people stay here and everything we needed was there, even a booster seat for a baby. The cabin is in a beautiful location and was secluded, we didn't see one person the whole weekend. The only reason i didn't give it five stars was because of all the stairs inside the home, if you have someone that can't get up and down stairs then this isn't the place for them. Also, the bathroom rugs need to be replaced. But with that said, we had a nice weekend with the family here.

Away from it all

  • 5 of 5

This place was not disappointing. The accommodations were great and there was plenty of room for the family. If you want to be away from everything yet have all you need this is the place to go. The owner was very easy to communicate with and replied back promptly when I had questions.

Rock Haven is located in Rocky Hollow, a valley on Mill Creek upstream from Mill Lake. It is just off the Glen Cairn-Rogers road, between Highways 11 and 15. Natural Bridge State Park is a five minute drive away. The Mountain Parkway is about five miles away is. Going in the other direction is Muir Valley about 8 miles away. In addition to being close to many of the best known rock climbing sites in the area, there are numerous hiking trails in the Red River Gorge and at Natural Bridge State Park. In the summer on Friday and Saturday evenings there is folk dancing near the Park's visitor center. There is a public swimming area at the park, open in season. Most of all, the valley location of the cabin is a quiet wooded retreat where it is possible to reconnect with nature, experience the rhythms of the day and evening. In summer, the trees around the cabin provide the comfort of shade, especially on the deck, and in late fall and early spring the cliff protects from the wind, and so the deck is a lovely place to sit in the sun. Nearby there is opportunity to enjoy a Zipline at Cliffwood and also a Via Ferrata. For those interested in rock climbing, Muir Valley and the many other sites that the area is famous for, are within a short drive. If you enjoy sight-seeing, then taking the loop drive from Pine Ridge through the Gorge to Slade is a wonderful introduction to the area. Even better is cycling the same route.
