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, or fish the lake. 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.

Wonderful week at an amazing cabin
Just spent a full week at the cabin. Such a beautiful place. So much to see and do all within 30 minutes. So quiet inside the cabin as well. So glad it is a pet friendly place, our dog loved it there!

Serene, beautiful mountain getaway!
Big Rock Cabin is the perfect vacation spot for peaceful, natural beauty. Evenings around the campfire were amazing and hummingbirds were a morning attraction. Charming, exceptionally clean cabin filled with interesting artwork and family games. So close to many natural attractions -- hiking, fishing, kayaking. Rated best time ever by our 16 year old son and 19 year old daughter and their friends! We LOVED it.

Great place to get away from it all!
Big Rock Log Cabin was definitely what the doctor ordered after several days of sightseeing and crowds! It was so quiet and well kept! My wife & I both loved the unusual pieces of artwork that decorated the interior! Even though it rained the full day we were there we were still able to enjoy our meals on the covered porch and watch the hummingbirds at the feeder. We also enjoyed a pizza from Miguel’s, a must when in the area! Also the cabin would easily accommodate a family of eight with the two beds in the upstairs loft and a separate powder room. There’s even an indoor jet tub! Don’t pass up this hidden gem if you get the chance to be in the area!

THE cabin to mentally refresh and unwind.
Big Rock Cabin is even better than the pictures on-line. It is a comfy, cozy retreat with all the conveniences of home. The owner, John, has skillfully arranged eclectic art throughout the cabin and tastefully decorated this get-away. The surrounding landscape, right outside the cabin, is awesome! Slade, KY is also a laid-back area with something for everyone. I can't wait to come back with my husband, kids and dog! Thanks for making this cabin pet- friendly, as well. I, personally, loved the Daniel Boone Coffee Shop for my daily cappuccino.

Fantastic cabin
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 I could have stayed longer.

Great view
We loved sitting near the cliff enjoying an evening fire which was dry in spite of the rain. The folk art through out the interior was great. It was interesting moving around the cabin exploring it all. Overall it was a relaxing, rainy weekend with our dogs.

Sorry about the rain, we have had a lot of that this year. Glad you were able to still enjoy Big Rock and the fire pit in the rock shelter. Hope your next visit to Red River Gorge is bright and sunny. John

Epic, another one for the Book!
One of those I had a close call exsperiance that changes you. So I decided to find a place to celebrate my birthday this year, but really just to Celebrate LIFE itself. I truly stumbled accross this Cabin and Location on the internet . Took a shot and hit the jack pot! This cabin is so much fun and filled with great Karma. You can feel it from the owner and all those who have stayed their befor you. In fact there are a number of books filled with short notes written by people of all ages who have shared something about their stay. I was fortunate to have some very fun and loving family join me. I give the cabin itself 5 stars just for the art work. LOL it's truly awsome. However ther is so much good Karma and positive energy coming from the the property that you feel it as soon as you drive up. And for me to then walk down that great long coverd porch and open the front door and see where we would be staying ! It was Amazing, personality, comfort, feel of home, lots of room, clean, warm. Now not in my exsperiance ( LOL ) but it could be a very romantic getaway. It sleeps 8, and that's a good number to vision the Cabin would be FULL with 8 guest. The walk up to the Stone Bridge and ridge top views are worth every step. Happy Trails Link INDY

I call Big Rock my sanity retreat. It took 7 years to get it right and now all I or my guest have to do is walk through the door and leave everything behind. I am so glad you experienced the magic of Big Rock and hope you will visit us again. John

It was the perfect place to enjoy your surroundings--peace, quiet, nature!!
It was secluded enough that you could enjoy the peace and quiet, but close enough to local sites--Natural Bridge and Red River Gorge to get there easily. The four of us absolutely loved it. We sat out at the fire circle the two nights we were there. It rained the second night but the rock ledge protected us from the rain so we just sat there and talked and enjoyed the fire. I would love to come back. We cooked out both nights. You had everything there that we needed. My sister said she would use this cabin as a standard to measure other places by--she called it a "little bit of heaven". Thank you so much for letting us stay there! Yes I would recommend it to a friend. If I stayed there all week I might need a washer and dryer though. The only thing we had trouble with was seeing the sign at the end of the lane saying something about Rocky Hollow Resort--mostly covered by tree limbs which made it hard to see.

Sorry about not responding sooner, somehow your kind comments escaped me. I am so glad you enjoyed your visit and hope you and your sister will find the time to visit again, hopefully without the rain. We do have a washer/dryer in the utility room, all a guest needs to do is ask that the door be unlocked. And thanks for the heads up on the sign, I didn't realize it had gotten grown up. Next time out I'll do some weeding. Hope you'll visit again, John

the most perfect pet friendly place to stay
This place was amazing, all the little extras was such a special touch. The location was so close to the state park to go hiking. And the peace and quiet at the cabin was the best. Will definitely be returning.
