“Quiet, Peaceful, Isolated, On the Water”
Reviewed June 6, 2018 for a stay in June 2018

Loved how far is was from anything else.. owner is not kidding when he says you need 4X4 for this cabin. New Outback made it up and down, no questions asked.

The only sound you will hear while staying here is a jet every once in a while 36k feet above you. We were here for four days, and had a single mod-vee bass boat drive by on the river. There are other cabins, but we were the only occupied cabin during our stay.

Cabin is timber construction, smells of heaven when you walk in. Metallic screen doors lock for safe ventilation at night, and you have a fan + multiple lights running on a solar system. City water, two sinks, a shower, and a toilet - all the necessities! Full bed downstairs, plus couch. There is an upstairs (didn't go) with multiple beds for additional sleepers! Generator system (didn't use) for a larger fan, exterior light, and coffee maker.

Exterior is serene... front and rear porches... metal roof to enjoy the sound of rain... charcoal grill (think State Park!) and a fire ring (with a cooking grate attached to it) ensure all of the cooking space you could ever need. Wood comes with the rental. The river is close by.. but there's a steep bank, so if you're thinking shore fishing - you'll need to go up to the dock (100 yards upstream) that multiple H&P Cabins share.

The owner was great... met us and guided us in... didn't see him otherwise! He was a phone call away if we had any issues - and we had none. Cabin had toilet paper, feminine products, towels, hand towels, paper towels, and left over charcoal!

There's a grocer in downtown Beattyville - multiple pizza joints nearby - so all of your shipping needs are accounted for!

We will be back again the fall!

“Great cabin in a nice forested area.”
Reviewed October 25, 2017 for a stay in October 2017

The cabin is in a great location, we did not have a 4 wheel drive vehicle so the owners helped us a bunch by driving us and our bags down to the cabin and back up to our vehicles in the morning.

The River Retreat Cabin is a very beautiful place. Just what we were looking for. Larry was very nice, helpful and informative.Greg was very nice to work with us on our arrival time.The steep hill was not as bad as anticipated. Loved hearing the birds and night sounds. There was only one draw back - it was not as private as we had wanted. Had foot traffic on several occasions. and during one of those occasions just out of site of the cabin the man decided to do quite a bit of hollering.Would we come back? yes, but not for a private getaway

“Pleasant Weekend Getaway”
Reviewed November 11, 2016 for a stay in October 2016

My friends and I had a wonderful time staying in this cabin during a break we had from school. It was clean, fairly spacious, and had adequate commodities, such as running water and a grill upon which we could cook our food. There was no refrigerator, so we kept our food in a cooler with ice. For the sake of security, we were very happy with the isolated nature of our cabin and the fact that there wide open spaces nearby the cabin so that we could see if anyone unknown to us approached the cabin. There is a very steep hill which you have to go down to get to the cabin, so that was pretty scary, but if you have a vehicle with 4-wheel drive or that is trail-rated you should be good to go.

Thank you for your kind words. We welcome any suggestions as to how to improve your experience with us. There is work being done on that road into the cabin as we speak. It should be easier to get in to it, although it will still need a four wheel drive. Come visit with us again soon.

“Awsome Cabin”
Reviewed August 17, 2016 for a stay in August 2016

Rented this cabin as a surprise for my husband’s birthday. The location was perfect, we loved how peaceful and secluded the cabin was. Enjoyed hiking in Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge during our stay.
The drive to the cabin is steep, 4 wheel drive necessary, a little scary but passable, nice and slow. I would say that is the only downfall. The owner Greg, is very friendly, and accommodating to your needs. Looking forward to spending my birthday weekend there.
