“Our relaxing return”

I have traveled to several countries and seen some gorgeous sites, but I'd have to say that staying at the General's Cabin are some of my most cherished memories. My boyfriend and I are hard workers that don't get a lot of time together, and when we stay here we get a chance to put down the technology and just enjoy each other's company. We alway come with lots of Red River Gorge trails on our list, but end up enjoying the land around the cabin so much that we never want to leave! We recently went on a return visit and were thrilled to see where we had signed the guest book over five years ago.

Joy was so kind to us and was easily available by phone if we ever had any questions. I am so grateful to her for her kindness and for sharing such a wonderful place with others.

This land is secluded and away from light pollution (as you can see from this night time shot I got). I can't wait to visit my favorite place again some day!

The cabin was very nice. Very peaceful. Loved going to the pond and in the mornings hearing elk "bugle".

“Remote, Peaceful and Inspirational”
Reviewed 16 May 2017 for a stay in March 2017

I spent a week at The General's Cabin drafting my first-ever novel. This was the first time--but not the last--that I have spent a week by myself in a remote setting. Any anxiety I might have had quickly dissipated upon talking to Joy when I made my reservation and I was further comforted when she called to check on me and assure me that I could contact her quickly and easily if I had concerns or questions. Excellent cell phone coverage allowed me to tether my laptop for internet coverage. The king bed was comfy and warm (I especially appreciated the electric blanket during a couple unexpected icy nights). And the amenities--scented bath gel and shampoo, quality coffee beans with grinder and choice of drip or french press, a fabulous library, everything I could have needed and more! This is the perfect get-away. The cabin is unique in its architecture and history. Walking around the grounds is a delight. And, the surrounding countryside is beautiful.

“Experience a "life well-lived" by taking a few steps in General Little's shoes.”

If you've ever wondered what it would be like to live in relative seclusion, without traffic lights, noise...people, for that matter, you owe it to yourself to book the General's Cabin. It's an inspired structure on a beautiful piece of land. While you're there you'll immediately appreciate that a country boy came home to live out his days with his beautiful bride; he built a home, not a vacation cottage. History buffs will, and should, read the short biography stationed at the desk in the main room. As one of my buddies said about half way through, "Wow, this guy was the real deal." You might book The General's Cabin with the idea that you'll have a great place to stay while you're exploring the nearby Red River Gorge; on the other hand, you might conclude that you can hike any time and you'd rather stay at the cabin to fully absorb its charm. I enthusiastically recommend it as a perennial destination.

“A slice of heaven”
Reviewed 10 January 2017 for a stay in December 2016

We fell in love with The Generals Cabin the moment we opened the handmade walnut doors and walked inside. It's everything you dream of when you think about a rustic, cozy cabin but with all the comforts of home. Soft sheets, fully stocked kitchen, toiletries, endless amounts of literature and a fireplace.

We stayed for a extra long weekend over Christmas, spending our days in the Daniel Boone National Forest exploring and our evenings hanging around the fireplace enjoying each other's company. The big kitchen table was perfect for great meals with our family and the view in the kitchen area reminds you how lovely it is to be surrounded by nature!

We explored down by the pond and around the land on the paths, our Yellow Lab was in heaven as well! He was a fan of taking long naps under the table and by the fireplace after long walks!

The Generals Cabin was everything we expected and more! To find such a lovely spot to spend our holiday that also allowed dogs (with no additional fee) is hard to find these days.

As a bonus, Joy and Michael were so easy to work with as we made the booking and so flexible through our whole experience.

One of our favorite parts of The Generals Cabin is the history and the life of General Little. Such a great story; it reminds us all how important our roots, family and stories are. We enjoyed learning more about the history of the Red River Gorge and surrounding areas throughout our stay as well.

The Generals Cabin is a slice of heaven that we were ever so humbled to be able to enjoy!

We will be back!

Thank you for sharing such a special place!

Lauren, Duke and our four legged son!
