This is a semi-primitive cabin that can sleep up to 8 comfortably with bedding provided. There is limited electricity, a large picnic table & a fire pit to make s’mores! The cabin sits on the banks of the north fork of the Kentucky river and has river access for small boats & canoes. Lots of room for the kids (and adults!) to play!
This cabin is steeped in local history! River Retreat was built with the old L&E railroad bed as it’s front yard. The railroad was built by the Kentucky Union RR in 1889 going originally into Jackson, KY and was sold in 1915 to the L&N RR. The rails and tracks were taken up from Fincastle KY to Beattyville in 1942 and used for steel in WWII.
