The space
WINTER SPECIAL (November- March):
Rent Sunday - Tuesday, get Wednesday for FREE!
Rent Friday and Saturday, get Thursday for FREE!

Reserve ALL the days you plan to stay and we'll adjust the rate after you book. Please note, once the temperature drops below freezing, we have to close the bath house so the pipes don't freeze. An outhouse will be available, but no shower facilities.

HomeGrown HideAways is a hundred acre holler in the beautiful Red Lick Valley near Berea, Ky. We have all the good (beautiful views, babbling brook, hiking trails) and the bad (insects, noisy roosters, poison ivy) that nature has to offer so come prepared. We recommend hiking boots, bug spray, and jackets for cool nights.

Kids 15 and under are no additional charge.

Guest access
Feel free to wander around the farm and check out the scenery. There is a 1.5 mile hiking trail that encompasses the property along with a variety of side-trails (be sure to watch out for poison ivy!). We have a small playground with swings for the kids (and kids at heart). We also have two disc golf baskets and discs plus a croquet set you are welcome to set up. If you're feeling adventurous, our canoe is available for rent.

For your convenience, there is an outbuilding equipped with a phone and kitchen appliances that you are welcome to use as long as you clean up after yourself. We also have 4 fire-pits on the farm (a large, communal one near the pavilion, one near the Yome, an above-ground metal fire-pit in the RV/Treehouse/Glampsite area, and one up on the mountain. We ask that you make use of these instead of making your own, otherwise our farm looks like it has chicken pox from all the ground-fires. You are also welcome to bring your own above-ground fire container such as a grill or patio fire-pit. We have firewood for sale or wood can be gathered for free from our 80 acres of forest.

We have a shared-use bath house for all of our guests that is available from April through October (or whenever temperatures are predicted to fall below freezing). It features 4 flushing toilets and 2 solar-heated showers. We do provide toilet paper, but not towels or toiletries. For our winter guests, we built two outhouses (one near the yome and one in the RV area), but showers will not be available.

At the end of our road (about a half mile past our driveway), there is a small pond with a dock that folks have been known to swim in. In the other direction is a large reservoir that you pass on your way to our farm. The reservoir falls in the jurisdiction of Fish & Wildlife and has No Trespassing signs posted, but no one will report you as long as you aren't being disrespectful and leaving trash everywhere. Locals are often seen boating, fishing, and occasionally swimming, but be aware that there are usually cows upstream and snapping turtles enjoy the locale. We recommend closed-toe shoes or sandals when swimming in ponds.

All of our neighbors are friendly and accustomed to us having frequent guests so feel free to say hello if you see them out and about. Many of them will talk your ear right off with all the stories about our holler.

Other things to note
Please leave your pets at home. In addition to the native wildlife, we have dogs, cats, chickens, and roosters to keep you company.

Prepare to UNPLUG. There is no cell phone or internet reception at our place. Occasionally, some folks are able to catch a brief signal, but don't plan to digital access. The closest place to get a decent signal is at the cemetery near the reservoir. There is a telephone you can use in our concession stand.

Tater Knob pottery is less than 2.5 miles from the farm. If you don't want to drive, it's a nice walk or, if our bikes are functioning properly, you can go for a ride. Tater Knob open Monday - Saturday 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Closed New Year's Day, Easter, Thanksgiving and Christmas.

Speaking of bikes, HomeGrown HideAways is just a short jaunt away from the TransAmerican Bicycle Trail. During the summer, you are quite likely to see folks riding through the hills and enjoying the scenery. Sometimes they even come stay with us!

Prepare to UNPLUG. No cell service, no wifi, just nature (but you can easily find us on the world wide web)! HomeGrown HideAways is a hundred-acre holler near Berea, Ky. It is owned and operated by Nathan & Jessa Turner, Jessa's mom, and a variety of pets and wildlife. All guests have access to our Courtesy Kitchen which has a telephone, COFFEE, and all major appliances (oven, stove, fridge, microwave, coffee maker, sink, and a few dishes). It's nothing glamorous, but it can beat trying to cook on a fire in the rain! We'd definitely encourage you to go into Berea for some of the great food options there. We have a hiking trail, several fire pits, and are just 6 miles from Get Outside Ky where you can rent kayaks. We do not have tv, internet, or cell reception. There are as many stars as there are bugs so come prepared for both! The farm's bath house is open from April through October (or whenever temps remain above freezing for an extended period of time) and features 4 flush toilets and 2 solar-heated showers. Winter guests can use one of our three, luxurious outhouses, but won't have access to showers. We ask that you leave your pets at home, but you are welcome to snuggle ours. If you don't like dogs, our place may not be a good fit for you since our critters get pretty excited to meet new guests and may jump on you (we promise we're working on training). For those with service animals (ESAs are not allowed), please be aware that there are coyotes, hawks, and other wildlife that might be a danger and we cannot guarantee how our dogs might react to your assistant. Please chat with us ahead of time to make sure we're the right option for you. We love sharing our beautiful farm and hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

During your stay
The residents of HomeGrown HideAways recognize that you're probably visiting our farm to escape the daily hustle and bustle of regular life and might be looking for some peace and quiet away from other humans. No worries! While you are likely to see residents puttering around the farm doing chores, you're under no obligation to make chit-chat with us (unless, of course, you need something). On the flip-side, we'll never turn away anyone that wants to keep us company while we weed the garden!

We are a working farm so sometimes you can expect to hear things like tractors, chainsaws, roosters, barking dogs, coyotes, etc. We can't do anything about the roosters or coyotes, but if you want a relaxing afternoon nap in the hammock, just let us know and we'll work on quieter chores.
