Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge

Kentucky’s spectacular Red River Gorge is one of the 10 “Hidden Gems” among state and national parks identified by Country Magazine in its June 2014 issue. These gems are virtually unknown, remote, uncrowded national treasures waiting to be discovered, so amazing that they are well worth a trip off the beaten path. You deserve to discover this Hidden Gem for yourself!
The sandstone arch called Natural Bridge is believed to be at least a million years old!  It is one of the great natural wonders of Kentucky, and you can walk right across it when you visit the Natural Bridge State Resort Park.
Come restore your spirit in a place of incredible natural beauty in the Daniel Boone National Forest in Southeastern Kentucky, at the western base of the Appalachian Mountains…

Ultimate Adventures

Adventure & Fun, Lots of Things To Do

 A world-renowned destination for outstanding rock climbing and hiking, the Kentucky Rockies offer a variety of adventures for everyone from beginners to experts, and from youngsters to grandpa.  From zip lines to canoeing and kayaking, to swimming and fishing, there’s plenty of exciting activities to choose from. 

Have something more relaxing in mind? Ride the sky lift to the Natural Bridge sandstone arch for amazing views and great pictures. Don’t miss the gift shop for homemade fudge!

Take the kids swimming at the outdoor pool at Hemlock Lodge or leap from the huge rocks into the Red River, which flows throughout the Red River Gorge. Have a picnic, go fishing at Mill Creek, or stop for lunch at several unique area restaurants.

If your idea of fun and adventure involves doing nothing at all, then just relax in a hot tub, play a game of cards with friends and family, shoot a game of pool, or build a fire in the fire pit at on of our deluxe mountain homes and listen to the sounds of nature all around you.

Welcome to Cabins of Birch Hollow

At Cabins of Birch Hollow, our 10 custom-built premier mountain homes are owned by individual investors who take great pride in the quality of their homes, get to enjoy them from time to time, and share them with discriminating guests like you the rest of the year.

Located on 20 acres of a private 200-acre development, the cabins are far enough apart to assure complete privacy for our guests. Each cabin has its own unique theme and special décor, along with complete furnishing, appliances, linens, and kitchen supplies to make for a comfortable home away from home.

Cabin Overview

Our guests love the hot tubs, fireplaces, fire pits, and TVs/DVDs, and several cabins have pool tables or other game tables. Each cabin has developed its own following of guests over the years who return year after year, and four of our cabins are pet-friendly, in response to requests from our repeat guests.

Cabin Features

To assure the peace and quiet our guests love, our cabins sleep from 4-8 people comfortably. However, if your group is larger, you can rent several cabins and get to experience the special features each one offers to your family and friends.

Check out all 10 of our beautiful mountain homes to find the cabin that is perfect for your couples getaway, family reunion, or anything in between! Or learn more about our new private luxury suite!

Miguels PizzaDon’t miss a fabulous pizza from our good friends at Miguel’s, near Natural Bridge State Resort Park!  Miguel’s boasts over 30 years making homemade pizza crust, sauce, and bread for rock climbers and everyone else coming to the Red River Gorge year after year. From breakfast pizza to create-your-own salad and pasta dishes, this quaint hot spot offers 45 topping choices – and even has gluten-free pizza crust.  Eat in the dining area on seats removed from old school buses, on picnic tables outside, or use the order form on their website, call ahead, and pick up a pizza to take back to your cabin to enjoy. Grab some Ale-8 and make it a party! Great place to eat after a swim at the pool at Natural Bridge or in the Red River Gorge.  

P1020491A welcome newcomer is the Red River Rockhouse, serving eclectic and yummy fare from buttermilk pancakes to hummus wraps to hamburgers to kale and spinach salad!  We even tried an organic beer (Wolfe County is not a dry county, like Powell County) and sweet potato fries for the first time. Located at 4000 KY Route 11, Campton, KY 41301, the Rock House is a nice 4-mile drive past Natural Bridge State Resort Park.  You’ll see huge outcroppings of rocks for those who, like the owners, love climbing and hiking in the Red River Gorge area.  Look for the huge bear by the road!  He won’t bother you!  

C1 Kitchen and Bar

Your deluxe cabin at Cabins of Birch Hollow has a fully equipped kitchen, like this one at our Mane Stay cabin, and outdoor grills and fire pits, so you don’t need a restaurant at all during your stay in the Kentucky Rockies. Before you arrive, stock up on your favorite foods at Kroger’s in Winchester or Stanton if you are driving East on I-64, or stop at Kroger’s in Mt. Sterling if you are driving West on I-64.  Grill steaks or hamburgers, roast hot dogs and marshmallow on the fire pit, and enjoy preparing and sharing a wonderful meal on your outside deck or dining room.  Make some popcorn and watch an old movie!

Stop at the Daniel Boone Coffee Shop just down from Exit 33 in Slade for more than great coffee and tea!  Enjoy a delicious custom-made breakfast sandwich and latte, or an awesome milk shake, and have a seat in the dining area inside or outside on the back deck.  Browse the huge shopping area for unique items, and pick up some yummy desserts to take back to your cabin – like moist homemade banana nut bread and muffins, baked right there at the shop!  Forgot a few basic groceries?  They have eggs, milk, even steaks, and locally made homemade jams and jellies.  We love the new look of the place!  This is an ideal place to stop for a bite before or after a trip to Natural Bridge!

The Sandstone Arches Restaurant is a large family-style restaurant located inside the Hemlock Lodge, overlooking the huge pool complex at Natural Bridge State Resort Park.  They feature a seafood buffet most Friday nights in season, and the menu includes local favorites like pinto beans and corn bread, fried chicken, and cobbler for dessert.  This makes for a nice finish to a day riding the sky lift to Natural Bridge and hiking out to Lookout Pointe and Lover’s Leap!

sky-bridge-stationsky-bridge-station-signIf you are hankering for gourmet hot dogs, quesadillas, nachos, hummus, or chips and salsa – some items in “kid” sizes – plus some draft beer, head over to Sky Bridge Station in nearby Campton.  Play a game of darts or listen to some live music from local folks on weekends. It’s well worth the short drive after a fun day of hiking, sight-seeing, rock climbing, fishing, zip lining, or just hanging out with family and friends.
