Excellent experience at Kentucky Foothills Retreat. Plenty of hospitality from Joanna and Chris who were perfectly welcoming. Campsite was shady, cool and private. We enjoyed rambling the trails and biking on the rolling rural road around the farm. Highly recommended!

This place is absolutely amazing. If you're looking to stay somewhere with a lot of land and trails explorable by foot, this is your place.

Chris and Joanna were extremely kind -> Chris helped us start our fire and Joanna gave us a bag of delicious fresh eggs upon arrival :)
