Property Details

Property Description

Relax “Along The Ridge” (previously known as Amongst The Whispering Pines) where you’ll be surrounded by beautiful trees, large boulders and beautiful ridgeline - enjoy the view from the porch or the hot tub or at the base of the ridge!

Property Details

Along The Ridge has exclusive trails – that’s right, EXCLUSIVE trails for you and your group only – that lead up to and around the property.

There is also a private fire pit area at the end of the driveway.

When you’re ready to explore beyond the property, you can visit many of the most popular attractions, restaurants and trails in a matter of minutes.

The Natural Bridge, Red River Gorge Zipline, The Gorge Underground (kayaking UNDER the ground!), Kentucky Reptile Zoo, Thrillsville Adventure Park, Mill Creek Lake (fishing, swimming, kayaking), Nada Tunnel, La Cabana Mexican Restaurant, Miguel’s Pizza, Red River Rockhouse, Sky Bridge Station, and more are approximately 15 minutes (or LESS) from the property.

It is recommended to use an AWD or 4x4 vehicle when you visit Along The Ridge. Not only is the road leading up the mountain steep, but so is the driveway.

There are plenty of ways to enjoy your time Along The Ridge.

Hot tub- This is a great place to start your day. Relax and get your muscles ready for a day of adventure! Of course, the hot tub is also a great place to finish your day and if it’s wintertime, it’s a great place to be ANY time of the day! So, whether you’re preparing for a hike or relaxing/recharging your muscles after a long day’s hike, make sure you find your way to the hot tub.

Your group should spend at least half of a day touring the property. There are multiple trails that provide an experience like few others in the Gorge… you’ll see what I mean when you get along the ridge! You’ll also encounter huge boulders, a variety of trees and, remember, you could also encounter some wildlife – be aware of your surroundings at all times.

Bedrooms- with 2 queen beds, 1 full-size bed and a space in the finished basement to sleep, Along The Ridge is big enough to hold two smaller families or one larger family.

Kitchen- fully equipped with practically everything you need to make breakfast, lunch and dinner.

Living/dining space is an open layout that features a one-of-a-kind spiral staircase that leads to two bedrooms and full bathroom. There is a 40” smart TV in the living room and a dining table that could fit up to 8 people.

The finished basement is a perfect place for the kids to play board games (plenty to choose from!), read, nap/sleep and more.

The basement also has a bathroom and full-size laundry machines.

Second time we’ve stayed here. The kitchen has everything you might need. It’s a perfect getaway. The quiet. The rain on the tin roof. The rock cliffs behind the house. Plenty of room in this 3-story cabin for everyone to find their peace.
Airbnb Review #750039736592972423 #178058 by Review from Airbnb Guest #178058 11/02/2022
The location is very beautiful, backed up against the cliffs & caves. However, you can still hear the traffic from the highway, as it’s not very far off the main area. Everything was beautiful about this cabin, only a few things that could be improved: the floors are extremely creeky… which won’t really matter unless you’re a group of more than 6 and have some sleeping in the basement, like we were. Also, my Dad who is 81 had a hard time getting up & down the stairs to the main door, as they are very narrow and not always spaced out the same. Other than these few things, a very pleasant stay with beautiful surroundings!

I definitely recommend 4wd to get up the drive, but it's totally worth it! We had a fantastic stay!

Location, location, location. If you’re looking for a cool spot that is secluded yet close to everything Red River Gorge has to offer, this place is for you. It was easy to find and within minutes of great food, hiking, climbing, kayaking, etc. Communication with the owner was easy and the cabin was tidy and well stocked. The wifi was fine for our 5 cell phones to run on, we didn’t attempt to watch TV. We will definitely be back!

Absolutely AMAZING!!!
The check in process is very simple, the cabin is minutes from convenience stores and any of the big tourist attractions.
it's clean and very secluded so you get your privacy.
My kids were extremely disappointed when we left because theythought we had moved in
Airbnb Review #680386731396111391 #165253 by Review from Airbnb Guest #165253 07/27/2022
Well maintained cabin in and quiet spot in the woods. It feels very secluded, but is only minutes away from many things to do in RRG. WiFi was spotty, but that’s expected, the hot tub was in working order but could use an upgrade. There was plenty of room for kids to do activities by themselves in the basement level, and adults could have some kid free time without worry. The fire pit was really nice too! We enjoyed a fire and some s’mores and there was enough room to sit around it for our group of 7.

We had an amazing time on our trip to the gorge! The cabin was beautiful, clean and close to everything but still private. Check-in is at the bottom of the hill less than 5 minutes from the cabin. Everyone was so nice and accommodating that it made the check-in/out process easy!

Had a great stay at a beautifully located cabin that was very clean and welcoming!!!
Airbnb Review #614465485209514641 #151920 by Review from Airbnb Guest #151920 04/28/2022
We loved our time at Whispering Pines. The property is beautiful, with plenty of space inside the cabin. We had 3 queen beds in separate bedrooms and one twin/full bunk on the bottom level. Our group loved coming back to the hot tub after a full day of climbing. The kitchen has all the basics for cooking dinner and breakfast during our stay, and there's a campground-style grill near the hot tub outside.

The only issue we had was the AC was not working well when we arrived. It was the first week of warm weather, and it turned out the unit needed to be charged. The maintenance team did a great job of getting it fixed and cooling again! Everyone at 5-Star was super friendly and helpful.

The cabin was great. The kitchen was fully stocked. All the beds and bathrooms were clean. No complaints about it.
Everything was top notch and the location is perfect. by Aaron 01/24/2022
We stayed at Whispering Pines for a weekend getaway at Red River Gorge. Everything was top notch and the location is perfect. It is very close to natural bridge and trail heads that take you into the gorge.

Book this cabin with confidence.

Cabin was well situated-- Very close to Natural Bridge and RRG!! The driveway and road to the cabin is steep and rough so recommend SUV and/or all wheel drive!!

The driveway is steep.. but once at the top you have plenty of room.

A nice cabin for exploring Red River Gorge.
Airbnb Review #411523337104706624 #119529 by Review from Airbnb Guest #119529 08/01/2021
My family enjoyed our stay here. It's at the very end of a steep road and because of this it's very private. No one driving by, no extra noise because it's at the end of the road. The cabin is clean and beautiful. May want to bring extra paper towels and garbage bags. The kitchen is nicely stocked and we also loved the hot tub. We would definitely stay here again.
Airbnb Review #407950954407473973 #118779 by Review from Airbnb Guest #118779 07/18/2021
Beautiful setting. The cabin has been updated since the photos were taken. There are three private bedrooms with queen/full beds and the basement has a bunk bed, one full mattress, one a twin.
Everything was provided. Thank you!

Great place to stay that was extremely clean and had everything I could need in the kitchen. Close to the gorge, but super private and quiet. The entire family wanted to stay longer. We'll definitely be back!
Airbnb Review #761469590 #110096 by Review from Airbnb Guest #110096 05/25/2021
It was a lovely stay, and would definitely recommend. There is a bathroom on all three floors, which was very convenient. The deck was so wonderful, probably my favorite part. The location is gorgeous and the hot tub was working and very lovely. A couple downfalls were, the tv had a line down the screen, dvd player didn't work, a few leaks, and the drive up the hills were not good for smaller cars(potholes). also, the bathtub is not the same than in the photographs, and the foosball table is not there like pictured.

This cabin was everything I hoped it to be. We came to RRG for a relaxing long weekend with some hiking and exploring thrown and we had a great time. Would definitely recommend and plan on coming back!
This cabin was everything that we were hoping for... by Cody 03/15/2020
This cabin was everything that we were hoping for and had everything that we needed. Very short drives to the trails and for necessities. The cabin was on a very private lot and easy to find. We will be back!
It was perfect. by Haley 03/14/2019
It was perfect. Beautiful cabin that was secluded but also only a 10 minute drive to the natural bridge.
