This unique cabin has been offered for a vacation rental for the last 15 years and we now offer it to a wider audience. Private yet close to Natural Bridge and Red River Gorge. An open floor plan with 2 bedrooms (1 King, 2 built-in twins), 2 large bathrooms ( Tub/shower combo w/a washer/dryer in main bathroom off King, and step in shower off twin bedroom), and a sleeping loft with 2 futons, suitable for youngsters or agile adults accessible by a ladder. There is a fully furnished kitchen, two gas fireplaces, central HVAC, outside dining on front porch w/outdoor fan, rockers, dining table, ceiling fans indoors, charcoal grill w/charcoal provided. There is a large fenced outdoor dog park under the trees near the fire pit [wood provided] a hammock under the trees. Little to no light pollution so our magical cabin is a great place for star gazing. Many guests enjoy celebrating birthdays, anniversaries, & honeymoons at our beautiful cabin. With that in mind, we will provide roses and champagne on the house for such special occasions.

I am the general's daughter and have offered The General's Cabin as a vacation rental for the last 15 years, but am now offering this unique cabin to a wider audience. I am hands-on with all aspects of this unique cabin as it was built by my father, the general and means so much to me. I offer flexible check in and check out when able and also champagne and roses on the house for special occasions. I go above and beyond to make sure guests are happy with their stay at our magical cabin in the woods.
