Cabin Holiday Rental
Nestled under the sandstone bluffs that nature carved out of Rocky Hollow, things are quiet and easy going. Here lies Big Rock Log Cabin tucked away in the Kentucky mountains yet only minutes from Natural Bridge State Park, Red River Gorge and the Daniel Boone National Forest. After a day of fishing, hiking, or rock climbing, Big Rock is a wonderful place to come home to. Relax on a large covered porch or by the fireplace in the Great Room. Big Rock Log Cabin beckons you to slow down, relax, and enjoy the sights and sounds of the forest, all in the comfort of a cozy and well furnished log cabin. You can even lean back in your lounge chair in front of a campfire inside Big Rock’s own rock shelter. Big Rock sleeps 8, queen in the master bedroom, 2 queens in a large loft, and a queen sleepe...Nestled under the sandstone bluffs that nature carved out of Rocky Hollow, things are quiet and easy going.

Big Rock sleeps 8, queen in the master bedroom, 2 queens in a large loft, and a queen sleeper sofa. Big Rock Cabin is fully furnished with new furniture and antiques, creating a cozy, comfortable feeling. All linens, blankets and towels are furnished so all you need to bring are food, drink, and personal items. Central air and heat will keep you comfortable any time of the year. Big Rock Cabin has a bath and a half plus a Jacuzzi. Do you like to cook? We just finished the new galley style kitchen that is fully furnished with refrigerator, electric stove, dish washer, microwave, toaster oven, coffee pot, and all the utensils you need for cooking, eating, and drinking. Don’t want to cook? Big Rock is only 5 minutes away from Kentucky’s best pizza or full buffet dinner. Subs are an easy 10 minute drive to Sub Way. That’s the nice thing about Big Rock, it’s close to everything, but when you top the ridge and drive down into Rocky Hollow you are suddenly away from it all. Natural Bridge State Resort Park is only a five minute drive for you to walk the trails, fish the lake, or swim in the Pool. Five minutes more and you enter the Red River Gorge Geological Area and the Daniel Boone National Forest with it’s forest and mountain trails leading to natural stone arches and fantastic views of cliff lined valleys. You can even take your dog on the trails in the national forest. Come to a wonderful part of the Kentucky Mountains and stay with us at Big Rock Log Cabin. Cabin has digital TV/DVD and high speed Wi-Fi Internet.More

This cabin felt like home. It is perfect for a peaceful retreat while exploring all of the activities available around Slade. After hiking all day and eating pizza at Miguels, the chairs by the bluff were just the spot for a beverage. I just wish...More

About the neighbourhood
Big Rock Log Cabin is less than 5 minutes from Natural Bridge State Park and Red River Gorge Kentucky yet tucked away in a secluded valley with deep forest, cliff, and rock outcroppings. In the heart of clifty wilderness.
How to get there
Big Rock is beside Natural Bridge State Park. We share a back property line. We are 5 minutes from the Lodge at Natural Bridge and 10 minutes from going through Nada Tunnel into Red River Gorge. You are close to it all yet down in a hollow away from it all.
