About Albert & Colleen Moore

When you visit we will likely be around the farm doing chores or a project, and would love to say hello, or offer suggestions for getting around the area, if needed. Although the cottage is not the only residence on the farm, many guests have commented that it still feels very private and secluded.

Albert & Colleen Moore purchased this cottage in 2016

Why Albert & Colleen Moore chose Harrodsburg

Glenriver Cottage is centrally located on a beautiful and historic farm. If you are looking to become immersed in history and quiet rolling hills and streams, this is a great place to do so. Many people enjoy the privacy of a rural location, and yet only minutes from the big city. For those visiting Central Kentucky for a wedding, graduation, reunion, or other occasions, we are a great alternative to the hotel, with room to spread out, eat at home if desired, and enjoy the outdoors.

What makes this cottage unique

Central Kentucky's rural surroundings, beauty and history makes it a great place to get away from the hustle and bustle. If you enjoy bourbon, horses, history, or the outdoors, this is a special place you will enjoy. If you desire to relax while you're here and "stay home", you can fish in the river, enjoy our game room or have a fire in the outdoor area. There's a charcoal grill and we don't mind a bit if you want to invite your relatives over!

Harrodsburg is a charming small town, with a few good places to eat, a great historical archive and an actual log fort. Downtown there is some antique shops and a very nice arts shop, and it's a short drive to many other unique and fun towns and attractions. If you have not been to a distillery, you want to be sure to venture out to Four Roses or Makers Mark or any other that welcomes visitors. The smell of the yeast cooking the brew that goes into the giant copper stills is something not to be missed. Several world class horse farms are about 30 minutes away , where you can see up close the breeding and sale operation of Thoroughbreds. If you are a history lover, there are Civil War battlefields and sites, old mansions, and more.

Beautiful Peaceful Cottage

  • 5 of 5

The Cottage is beautiful on the inside and out and very well maintained. Th eChildren loved fishing in the River behind the house and playing pool and air hokey in the game room. The Owners are very nice and helpful. This cottage is about 40 min from lexington, 90 min from louisville, and 90 min from the Ark experience. We went to all three and had a fantastic time. There is a walmart just minutes from the house and many great places to eat. Also Beautiful countryside.

Cozy and comfy cottage.

Our family of five and our dog enjoyed our stay at the cottage. It was clean and very comfortable and the grounds were beautiful. Our hosts were very pleasant. We recommend this property and will look into staying there on our next visit to KY. The Robinson's from PA.

Perfect Retreat for Young Family

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cottage to serve as a gathering place for several family members traveling to Harrodsburg for a funeral. My daughter and son-in-law, along with their four young children, stayed in the cottage while the rest of us stayed in other places around town. It was a great spot for the kids with plenty of room for them to run around and play outside. Albert & Colleen were very accommodating hosts.

Charm in Abundance and Wonderful Hosts!

  • 5 of 5

We spent a wonderful week in this lovely cottage. Our hosts were just the nicest folks, they provided us with extra linens, they gave us fishing equipment to try our hand fishing in the stream and even brought over some tomatoes from their garden!

The cottage was very comfortable.

We look forward to a return trip!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I were thrilled with Glenriver Cottage! We enjoyed the relaxing country feel while knowing that town was conveniently close. The cottage had everything we needed with extras included. We were in town for a family celebration and Albert and Colleen made us feel welcomed and right at home. There are really so many nice things to say. Obviously, staying here exceeded our expectations! We do hope to stay again when we have more time to slow down and just enjoy.

Thank you so very much Albert and Colleen!
