The property sits adjacent to the "Thrash Rock" a geological feature of historical interest. Local legend tells us this is where the ancient natives and local town folk threshed their grain. The area was settled early 19th century & locals say in late 19th century this area was a bustling small village on the road to Sinking Creek and the Rockcastle River. Old home foundations dot the landscape. The cabin sits in the front of our yard adjoining the Daniel Boone National Forest on the NW side. Please consider a visit, you will experience nature at its finest!

About us: We love the peace & serenity of the Daniel Boone National Forest. We relocated to Laurel County in 2001 and have traveled throughout the US, the scenic beauty in the DBNF is our escape to the woods!

Why this property: We purchased this hand-crafted cabin built in 2012 in 2015 which squares off a corner to our yard, completely remodeled it and now offer this cozy vacation home for your perfect escape! Daniel Boone National Forest access is along the northwest boundary of our yard and is about 1 mile to Sinking Creek, 5 miles to Woods Creek Lake to the north, Laurel Lake to the south, City of London to the east and the Wild and Scenic Rockcastle River to the west. Conveniently located off 80W about 10 miles from exit 41 on I-75 on a rural road through the forest, midway between Wood Creek Lake & Laurel Lake.

Unique benefits: Our cozy cabin in the Daniel Boone National Forest is in a rural, forested area. Close enough to the modern world yet far enough away to escape daily life and traffic. Its always 10 degrees cooler here! The Daniel Boone National Forest in the Appalachian foothills is a temperate, mixed mesophytic rain forest with amazing and unique flora and fauna. Its like camping with all your stuff! We love our little piece of the forest and hope you will too!

We love our little cabin in the woods and hope you will too!
