Unplug and reset your rhythm to a gentle groove in our twinkly, off-grid, hilltop cabin for two where blue skies and rolling bluegrass hills will enchant you and carry your stress away. 

Spectacular sunsets are a perfect backdrop for al fresco dining on the porch and the stargazing can be magnificent. You'll discover the Chaplin River at the bottom of the hill where you can rent a kayak or canoe for the day or just cool down with your toes in the water. Walking trails invite you to explore the woods for some healing nature immersion with contemplative artistic touches along the way.  Solar twinkle lights come on after dark and a fire circle with stump seating offers a good way to wrap up a long day.  Picnic tables are available under a shaded pavilion, as well as a BBQ grill,  cold water garden hose shower (during summer months) and a porta-potty. You're pretty much guaranteed relax and unwind if you spend a night or two in the Little Star House. 

Please note: 

1) This cozy cabin is offered for reservations of two guests only.  (Kids 10 and under are an exception to this rule).  If your party includes more than two people over age 10,  you're welcome to book tent camping spots from our Frisbee Field listing and set up adjacent to the cabin. We realize this scenario will not work for everyone and we're truly sorry. We're working to add more sleeping options by next summer to accommodate you. 

2) This listing is totally off-grid. The lights you see in photos are AA battery powered or solar.  We consider this a good thing! When's the last time you truly unplugged?  Unfortunately, you will probably still have a phone signal. (You'll just have to turn it off.)  

Last but not least, we close the gates at dark to give you an additional sense of privacy. Sleep soundly in your secluded hideaway away from the hustle and bustle  and embrace the feeling of space and sounds of wilderness. 

We enjoy share the magic we've discovered in the hills, hollow, river and sky of Little Wing Hollow. If you're a nature lover in need of a weekend getaway with gentle healing vibes we are certain you'll enjoy being here. 

No hate in our holler. Black lives matter. LGBTQ friendly.

Little Wing Hollow is a piece of heaven! I highly recommend an overnight stay in Casita Estrella. We arrived to find the most charming, cozy, and well-equipped little nest to unwind and restore our weary spirits. We slept soundly and safely in the adorable loft, and kept warm with the wonderful wood stove. We had all the fresh cut wood we needed and enjoyed the beautiful fire pit in the evening, as we welcomed the Full Moon. The hiking trials and the special Art Trail is an absolute delight. We kayaked both days we were there, and found even more peace and paradise on their lovely river. Aneesa is an absolute joy! She was so warm and welcoming, and put us right at ease. Her husband came by in the evening to check if we needed anything, and to welcome us even further. Don’t hesitate to book a stay here! You will not be disappointed! I cannot wait to go back!

Hi Jodi! Thank you so much for the nice review. I enjoyed meeting you and your family and am glad my pal Lori Lyn led you to me. Hopefully one day in the future we'll get her out here for a Prayer Painting session. If so, I will be sure you are invited! Glad to hear you had a fun visit and appreciate you cleaning up so well, too. :) Until next time.... many thanks for your business! Happy Fall, Anessa

A very magical place my partner and I had an amazing visit at little wing hollow, which is strangely set on a ridge with an incredible view.huge starry sky on a calm warm night.The cabin was cozy and inviting with everything you would need,it was great to look out of the windows over such beautiful scenery.we walked the art trail which ,as stated in other reviews,is both meandering and inspiring,we also walked to the river then settled into a night of total bliss,so quiet, broken only by the soft drones of planes far overhead.
The next morning we had a very pleasant chat with Annesa and Beau both delightful and very interesting people .unfortunatly we had to head out quite early for our hike at mammoth caves.
I can not recommend both the camp and the hosts highly enough, an all around perfect visit.........we shall be back.

What a neat place you have created. We hope to come see Serpent Mound and book a stay with you in the future. Glad you had a good time while you were here and lovely weather to boot! Much love to you both, Anessa
