Step One - Fall 2019 - New Pond Excavation at
Cabins of Birch Hollow
Our developer's vision is to GROW in 2020, adding more deluxe mountain homes in our 300-acre private development! The rains finally stopped long enough for the excavation of a brand new road, creation of a huge pond and not one, but TWO, dams - one you will be able to drive across! 15 building lots will be cleared all around the new pond, and the pond will be stocked with bluegill, crappie and bass you can catch and eat! It's time for our guests to pick out their favorite lot and finally build their own dream cabin!
Step Two - April 2020 – View of First Pond and Cleared Road.
After numerous setbacks due to heavy rains, the first pond was excavated and filled in with water before Spring, the surrounding road compacted, and several building lots cleared. Progress was halted with the unexpected arrival of the Coronavirus, and resulting cancellations just as the Season began in March.
With the Red River Gorge closed due to COVID-19, photographer and friend John Snell was itching to get some Spring flower shots and asked if he could spend some time in Birch Hollow exploring for wildflowers. He stayed at Snuggle Inn in mid-April and had several days to walk the hiking trails – capturing these gorgeous images of the first pond filled with water and the road surrounding it. He also discovered these beautiful wildflowers throughout Birch Hollow!
