Take it easy at this unique and tranquil getaway. Newly remodeled home on a 125 acre farm that is home to Kentucky’s newest wildlife park & Daniel Boone’s last home in Kentucky. Expansive views, and a visit to Wendt’s Wildlife Adventure (open seasonally), which is owned & operated by your hosts, are sure to give you just the right amount of rest & adventure that you are seeking.

The space
The Hilltop Retreat is set on the back of our family’s 125 acre working farm. Although, the animals you will find here are different than the average farm. You will see camels, zebras, elk & bison as you come up the drive to your home away from home. This spacious home will sleep up to 7. The master room has a king bed, the second bedroom has 2 twin beds, the living room has a sofa sleeper & the front living room has a futon.

After breakfast in the fully stocked kitchen take a walk down to Daniel Boone’s last home in Kentucky, built by Boone in 1795. Then head down the driveway a bit further to our family’s wildlife park to see sloths, kangaroos, African tortoises, the Parakeet Encounter & much more. Please note that there is an admission fee to the wildlife park, and that it is open seasonally.

The wildlife park will close for the season on September 5, 2021.

At the end of the day, cozy up by the fire pit and roast some marshmallows or snuggle up on the sofa with the gas fireplace going.

Where you’ll be

Carlisle, Kentucky, United States

Nicholas County is full of friendly people. I suggest going into Carlisle for breakfast or lunch, visit the several shops in town, the Neal Welcome Center & the Kentucky Doll & Toy Museum, take a swim at Lake Carnico, visit the historic sites nearby such as the Abner Mill Chapel, Tanner’s Station & covered bridges. Go up the road a bit and stop in at Allyson’s Concrete, then a few more minutes will take you to Blue Licks Battlefield State Resort Park where you can visit the museum, see where the last battle of the Revolutionary War was fought, and enjoy a meal in the lodge. Then a bit further down the road you’ll find Pleasant View Amish store. Then continue into historic Maysville stopping first in Old Washington.

Then on another day go the other direction to explore Paris or Cynthiana. History, Shops, murals, coffee shops and coffee roasters. And just a bit further, a breathtaking drive through horse farm country will take you to the Kentucky Horse Park, Keeneland, the Kentucky Castle, historic Midway. There is so much to discover!

There is so much history and small town charm in every direction from our centrally located retreat on the hill. We invite you to come & explore!

During your stay

We live on the farm not far from the guest house. We are always just a phone call or text away if you should need anything. We do enjoy meeting & talking with people, but will not be intrusive if you prefer a quiet stay. You are welcome to stop by if you wish and have a chat.
