Welcome to the Gathering Place !!

Do you have a large group coming to Birch Hollow for a family reunion – and need a place to get together for shared meals and activities? Looking for a truly unique facility near the spectacular Red River Gorge / Natural Bridge area to host your event – whether a class, business meeting, retreat, adventure club, mastermind group, or birthday party? If you are looking for a place to, well, gather…then check out the Gathering Place here at Cabins of Birch Hollow.

Located right across the road from the Birch Hollow Welcome Center and the Fanny Morton House at 15 South Fork Road in Stanton, Kentucky, where our cabin guests check in when they arrive, the Gathering Place is a completely refurbished and remodeled barn that can accommodate up to 30 people. There is plenty of room for parking in front and behind the facility.

The enclosed area can be set up with buffets and dining tables for meals, with tables and a presentation area for classes and meetings, or in a custom format to meet the needs of your particular group. We have the tables, chairs, and table cloths, and there are two large bathrooms and a small kitchen area with sink and refrigerator.

GP-Room Inside for Events

The outside covered porch has a rustic built-in table and bench, two swings, and additional chairs and tables can be set up. Several grills are available for your use, but no cooking can be done inside (due to license requirements). No worries – have your guests cook ahead of time and bring covered dishes, or have your event catered.

Several restaurants in the area will cater for you, or we’ll be happy to share the contact information of our friends who love to do catering.

Beyond the porch is a huge fire pit area for creating a fabulous crackling fire after dark – one of our favorite things to do when we get together with our family and friends. We even captured a full Kentucky moon in one of our photos.

Finally, the enclosed area can be set up as a bunk house for up to 15 people.  Contact Natalie at 606-663-0005 for information about renting the Gathering Place for use as a bunk house for large groups.

The Gathering Place is offered as an amenity, with only a set up and cleaning fee, to our cabin guests who book at least three of our cabins in Birch Hollow for their event. It can also be rented out to groups who are not staying at our cabins for a daily fee + set up/cleaning fee.

Contact Dale or Natalie at 606-663-0005 for more information about how the Gathering Place can be customized to meet the needs of your group.
