Great for the whole family!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our Christmas getaway. I was concerned having only 1 room for all 4 of our boys to sleep in, but it worked out perfect. They loved the ark room. This home is perfectly located, the Ark Encounter is just a few minutes down the road, and creation museum is only 40 minutes on the highway.

The home is nicely furnished with all the linens and dishes you need. They have plenty of movies on hand, a few board games, books to read for the littles, and toys in the ark room. Thank you for such a great home away from home!

A great little getaway. A hidden gem in Kentucky

  • 4 of 5

The location of the house was absolutely awesome. A nice view of the Kentucky landscape in both the front and back of the property. Roomy kitchen and dinning area. The upstairs was also a perfect play area for our little girl.

Cozy cottage. 8 minutes from Ark Encounter.

  • 5 of 5

Close to market. Close to great Mexican restaurant. Great heat, everything worked. Quiet. FUN upstairs loft for kids, decorated like Noah's Ark. Our grand kids and grandma had a super special time sleeping, in the 'Ark.'

Granddad, me, slept comfortablely on the futon. Our son and daughter-in-law had the master bedroom, with a port-a-crib for the baby. High chair in kitchen a life saver. Washer and dryer very useful. We would definitely come again on our next trip. For the Ark Encounter, the 8 y.o. got the most and stayed all day. The two younger siblings 5 & 2, were close enough, to slip home for a nap after lunch. Next time we will arrive two hours after opening, to let things settle out. The later in the day, the lines at exhibits were definitely shorter. I shared the framed sayings with FB. Everyone like them. Thank you for sharing your lively guest cottage. We enjoyed meeting the neighbor who originally grew up in this home.

Our stay at Family Friendly Cottage

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Everything was just what we needed for our stay. There were nine adults from three different states. It was close to the Ark and the Science Museum. A very good time by all.
