“Cozy and luxurious--Can't wait to go back!”
Reviewed September 25, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

I took my husband here for a surprise anniversary trip, and our first trip to the gorge. I am VERY picky about where we stay, and I was thrilled that the pictures match reality. This cabin is immaculate and perfect as a jumping off point for all the local activities. The materials used to build this cabin are beautiful. I couldn't stop admiring the kitchen cabinets, shower, and wood ceiling. The hot tub was also extremely well-maintained and we took advantage of it after long hikes and rock climbing. Being in this cabin made me want to build our own!

The cabin had only a few MINOR shortcomings in our opinion. We heard some critters under the house one night that kept us awake; although that doesn't surprise me being that we were in the woods. The mattress was a bit too soft for us--another completely personal preference. Finally, we bottomed-out our car transitioning between the paved and gravel parts of the driveway. I would suggest driving a car that has a bit more clearance under it.

Overall, we both loved this place and I'd book it every weekend if I could!

“NO INTERNET, ANTENNA TV ONLY, DIFFICULT ACCESS”
Reviewed September 23, 2015 for a stay in September 2015

The Fireside Cabin is gorgeous! We loved the heated floors in the kitchen and downstairs bathroom and really appreciated the hot tub after hiking during the day. However, we were thoroughly dismayed that there was no internet and that the cable TV had been downgraded to antenna only. Also, the access road was very steep and poorly maintained. The turn into the drive was sharp, and although concrete, was also very steep. Parking at the top was ample, but not level closest to the cabin which made unpacking and packing the vehicle difficult.

I don't know of any downgrade from satellite to antenna, we have to many trees to get the satellites, so wee have never had it, nor have we ever advertised it, we have local channels and dvd player and an assortment of dvd's, I apologize for any misunderstanding. Thank you for bringing it up about the steep road and driveway coming to the mountain side chalet, we have a blacktop road and the driveway is concrete.

Fireside cabin is perfection! My husband and I rented the cabin for an anniversary/birthday get away. We couldn't have been happier! The cabin was spotless and the owners really have an attention to detail. The hot tub, view and seclusion made it difficult to leave the cabin and get out and explore the gorge. They had recently poured a new concrete driveway, which was very nice. Can't wait to return! Thanks again to Paul!

My boyfriend took me to Fireside Chalet for a surprise birthday weekend getaway. This cabin is amazing! Owners have truly thought of everything to make their guests feel welcomed and at home. Fireside is a gem...secluded, modern, peaceful retreat in Red River Gorge. The cabin is beautiful. It is clean and well maintained. Furniture/bed was super comfy. We enjoyed cooking in the awesome kitchen. The bathrooms had a spa resort feel...so luxurious. Deck was perfect for outdoor dining, board games, and yoga. Hot tub was perfect...so relaxing. We love Fireside and will return again in the future! :)

Very peaceful place tucked back in the woods of the Gorge. Hot tub was incredible in the chill of the fall as the leaves fell. The cabin is incredibly well maintained and we had a much needed time of rest and relaxing.
