Have you ever thought about what it would be like to own your very own deluxe cabin, enjoy it yourself several times each year, share it with family and friends, cover all the expenses with rental income, and have no management hassles?
Meet Dale Smith, the developer and manager of Birch Hollow, and President of Creative Real Estate Solutions, Inc. (CRES), a company that specializes in putting together creative and workable investment opportunities for both first-time/conservative and experienced/aggressive real estate investors. As a licensed real estate broker for more than 40 years and an expert on 1031 tax-deferred exchanges, he has counseled hundreds of people, helping them realize their dreams of ownership, even when they didn’t believe it was possible for them!
Dale can show you how to deal with challenges in today’s real estate market, as well as challenges holding you back from becoming an owner/investor. Since he provides full-time professional management of Birch Hollow, he can offer a truly unique opportunity to combine a deluxe mountain getaway for you and your loved ones with a fantastic investment you don’t have to manage yourself!
If you love what you see when you peruse the cabin pictures, and videos right here on our website, or if you have stayed in one or more of our beautiful mountain homes yourself and love coming here, let us share with you what these cabins are all about and how you might be able to fulfill a dream of owning one of them yourself – even if you have never owned an investment property before!
Each cabin has a unique design and theme, with meticulous attention to detail – both in workmanship of construction and in furnishings and décor. This is how we have attracted good customers like you who keep coming back again and again ever since we built the first cabin in 2007.
The 10 deluxe mountain homes in Birch Hollow in Stanton, Kentucky, are owned by private individual investors who take great pride in the quality of their property. Our premiere cabins offer a fantastic getaway for guests from near and far who love the natural beauty, adventure, and remoteness of the Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge area, but who want to enjoy the seclusion of a private development.
Some of our cabin owners/investors come to the Hollow several times a year to enjoy their cabins, while other owners live too far away to visit. Either way, these owners enjoy complete hands-off cabin ownership. This means they can rely on Dale’s experienced management team to handle every aspect of renting and maintaining their cabins, while the owners just sit back and relax, receive a check each month, and reduce their taxable income or business taxes each year!
As full-time manager, Dale cares about every guest, every cabin, and every investor/owner, and he and his dedicated team are committed to providing a wonderful and memorable experience to all of our Birch Hollow guests, year after year.
Dale invites each incoming guest to call him personally a couple of days prior to their arrival, making sure they have the correct directions and have all their questions answered ahead of time. Who takes the time to do that? Dale does! It’s a personal touch cabin guests appreciate so much, and because he knows and loves the area so much, he can help each guest plan for the type of getaway desired - whether quiet relaxation or filled with outdoor adventure. He spends most of his time in Birch Hollow and loves greeting our incoming guests and getting to know them better. Many return year after year and have become part of our Birch Hollow family – because they feel Dale and the staff make them feel welcome and appreciated.
CRES has joint-ventured with one of the largest and most successful development companies in Kentucky to fully develop all 300 acres in Birch Hollow to include 45 exclusive building lots for investors and new owners to build the mountain home of their dreams. These new lots may be offered to qualified investors with owner financing, joint ventures, build to suit, or as great investments using self-directed IRAs or other retirement funds. The Hollow will expand to include another large pond and dam, plus additional hiking trails, with opportunities for our adventurous guests to find hidden treasures in the area as it is cleared and developed.
For investors, this means ownership of an investment in a private development that is continuing to grow and will offer even more to future guests, in addition to the opportunity to occasionally enjoy their cabin and the awesome beauty of this area with family and friends. Alternately, you may choose to purchase a deluxe cabin here as a first or second home. Either way, you will be the proud owner of one of the area’s premier, custom-built cabins.
Every cabin's pictures enable you to feel like you are walking in the front door and seeing every room and feature, top to bottom, as well as views from the porches and decks. You will also see reviews from our guests who visited that cabin over the last couple of years.
If you are on a computer, we hope you enjoy the aerial photography of our cabins on our home page that was recently created by one of our talented guests! It’s like you were flying over them in your own helicopter! If you are on a tablet or smartphone click here.
