Description

Big Leaf Cabin is a wonderfully sunny place to use as your basecamp for all kinds of adventures in the gorge!  The screened in porch, fantastic firepit, wonderfully forested view and quiet end-of-the-road location all invite both relaxation and rejuvination.  There are board games, a fully stocked kitchen, swinging hammock chairs and kayaks all for your use...and Big Leaf is 1 mile from The Gorge Underground and Miguel's Pizza!  Our Big Leaf offers a great combination of modern amenities without forgetting the classic experience of a mountainside cabin tucked away in the forest.  

Big Leaf is SEMI-OFF GRID, meaning it has full electricty, heat, and A/C, but it DOES NOT have regular running water.  The kitchen sink is human-powered via a foot pump, and the flush toilet in the bathroom inside the cabin is muscle powered as well...you pour in water from a rain barrel to flush.  Additionally, while there is NOT a shower here at the cabin, we have a hot guest shower available at our main office ("Red River Gorgeous"), about fifteen mintutes away.  Another great option is showering at Miguel's Pizza--which is a destination in and of itself with super-toppings, a climber hangout area and public showers!  

Amenities

Big Leaf is a SEMI-OFF GRID backcountry cabin that does not have regular running water, but does have full electric service, rainwater catchment and filtered potable water provided for your use as well.  We hope you’ll enjoy the peace and quiet of slowing down and focusing on what is really important in life during your stay!  

Kitchen: Big Leaf’s kitchen has an electric stove and oven, 3/4 size refrigerator, foot-pump sink, drip coffee pot, cookware, dishware, soap and kitchen linens .  Next to the fridge you’ll find a 5-gallon water dispenser for your cooking and cleaning needs. We supply two 5-gallon jugs of potable water during your stay...just let us know if you need more!  

Living/Dining:  Nestled between the windows and sunshine is a kitchen table for four.  There are additional tables and chairs outside on the screened in porch as well as down by the fire pit.  

Bathroom: Inside of Big Leaf there is a tiny bathroom that has a flush toilet that you flush by pouring rainwater in.  There is NOT a shower, but there is a small sink for handwashing and brushing teeth.  You are welcome to use the guest shower and bathroom at our headquarters at any time during your stay, located at 3546 Nada Tunnel Road, Stanton KY 40380.  

Bedroom:  Big Leaf can sleep up to 6, with limited privacy.  There are two twin beds upstairs in the loft, where there are great views and ample floor space for kids' sleeping bags, a quiet reading spot or a board game.  (We have a few sleeping pads available for your use.)  The full sized bed is located downstairs where there is a privacy curtain and also a futon that folds down into a full sized mattress, which can sleep two.  

Additional Amenities:  Small charcoal grill, back up propane Mr. Buddy heater, private screened in porch with table and several seating choices, as well as a table just right for the kids!  There is also a fantastic private fire pit in the backyard, featuring white Christmas lights to set the perfect "chill" mood year round.  In the backyard, near the fire pit, there is also a level and cleared area where an additional tent can be set up for a couple of extra guests or an "adventurous kids" campout.  Please note that if the total guest occupancy goes over 6 (including tent-sleepers), we do ask an additional $20 per person, per night and you need to phone us at the office to make these special arrangements.  (606) 663-9824.  But it is a perfect camping spot!  

Firewood is also available upon request.  For $25 we will deliver firewood to your fire pit.  Please be sure to mark on your reservation if you would like firewood delivery.  Please be sure to put out all fires COMPLETELY when you are finished and do not harvest from our woods.
