Small cozy area. Had a great time around the fire pit next to the pond.

We had a great time as a family. My son had so much fun he cried when we had to leave! That was a first.

First off, Dustin is about the nicest guy. He was so accommodating and just very welcoming. The site is beautiful and so peaceful. Watching a sunset, looking at the stars or watching the sunrise is just magical here. Will definitely be back as often as we can get away. Can't recommend the nook enough

Fantastic property. Great views. Clean and quiet! Just what we needed for our quick little "unplug" for a couple of days! Newton's Nook was very easy to get to but also far enough away from the hustle and bustle that the only sounds we heard were the crickets, neighboring roosters & cows and the occasional LSG dog doing their duty. It was perfect and we fully intend to return.

Beautiful view!Plenty of space to stretch out.Moon reflection on the pond.Pretty great spot to enjoy some breakfast!

Dustin is a friendly and communicative host! The land is beautiful and easily accessible. Loved access to the pond and the choice of tent sites. Close to the KY Bourbon Trail and the magical Bernheim Arboretum.
