What a relaxing weekend. Very quiet, very peaceful. We rested well in the bed and made good use of the hot tub! Waking up late, taking naps, enjoying the scenery and some quality time to ourselves. A very relaxing getaway. Our first Cabin retreat.. One of many...

cozy cottage

  • 5 of 5

The fall foliage was spectacular , just what we had hoped. We achieved a much needed rest and relaxation during our 4 day stay . The cottage and the surrounding area was very peaceful at this time of the year. The best was waking up as if you were in the trees, as the house was snuggled in between large white oaks. My husband and I enjoyed the small room off the living area, as it was cozy as the warm light streamed in the windows. The surrounding area has several wineries. We enjoyed 3 of them and purchased the local wines to take home. We did call ahead to make sure they were open. Southeastern Kentucky was the right choice for a fall get away..

I liked the cabin, as far as the set up. Had a very cabin deal to it.

  • 3 of 5

I don't like leaving bad comments, but the cabin was extremely dusty. The blinds have years of dust on them. There were cob webs all over the place. Needs a good spring cleaning. Could not get the hide a bed pulled out. The circuit breaker for most of the lights in the kitchen and the fridge was turned off, took me a minute to figure that out. Had to get gas for the grill, it ran out while I was cooking burgers, kind of pissed me off. Probably would choose a different cabin next time.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that we did not live up to your expectations. I sent in the cleaning crew again and have inspected the cottage myself and found it is clean. I don’t know why the breaker was turned off but am glad you figured it out. We keep an extra gas tank at the cottage for the grill. We leave our numbers readily available for any questions or concerns our guests may have. I wish you had called so that we could have made your stay more pleasant. We strive to give our guests the best experience possible.

Very nice cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was just the right size for our family of three. The owner provided very good directions right up to the cabin so nothing was confusing upon arriving. We loved the gated community and took a few walks around, which was very peaceful. The cabin had everything we needed, but we didn't get a chance to use the hot tub (it was a little too exposed for my taste). We very much enjoyed our stay.

Warm and Cozy

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was very clean. We enjoyed our stay. It was very quiet and cozy. It was our first time to Kentucky and our stay was very enjoyable. When you sent a message to the owners they were very quick to respond. We will be staying there again. I would recommend this cabin.

Perfect

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cabin, has everything you need and then some- the hot tub was much appreciated after a long day of exploring. Centrally located with so many things to do and see. If you are looking for peace and quiet, surrounded by nature and a very comfortable place to stay, I recommend you make your plans and stay at Whispering Woods Cottage. You won't be disappointed.
