Airbnb Review #485450786797742952 #132537 by Review from Airbnb Guest #132537 11/01/2021
Overall, we had a good experience mostly due to other factors during our trip, however we probably will not stay there again due to a variety of reasons. Here are some pros & cons that we wish we would have known ahead of time:
Pros - setting is beautiful & quiet, lots of privacy due to the location of the cabin & sitting up high on the cliff, hot tub location was unique, bed was comfortable & large, nice to have a kitchen to cook from.
Cons - very limited amenities. We traveled by plane to RRG for a climbing trip, so the limited amenities made it difficult & added extra costs to our stay. We had to purchase toilet paper, paper towels, a sponge, salt, and laundry detergent as these things were not included with the rental & we were staying 6 nights. Also, the water smelled very strongly of sulphur. We reported this to our host & he gave us a tip to run the water for 1-2 minutes before using it. The smell didn't dissipate & we ended up having to buy drinking water because the smell was so foul. This made for unpleasant bathing. The hot tub was nice in location & the jets worked, but it smelled of mildew & sulphur. Also, the office staff warned us about the lady bugs, but the amount of dead bugs in the house was pretty unpleasant. They said they had sprayed the house earlier to get rid of the lady bugs, and we ended up having to sweep once per day to clean up the large amounts of dead bugs. There was an electrical issue with the stove that ended up shocking my husband while cooking. We reported this to the host & they sent someone from management over the next day. The inability to cook added extra costs to our trip, but they did comp us a little less than 1 night's stay. Also, read the fine print on the paperwork they make you sign at the office upon check in. They have weird rules about their wifi.
This place has great potential to be an amazing spot, if the hosts & rental agency would just invest a little more time & energy on the upkeep & amenities (include sponges, detergent, salt/pepper for cooking, extra towels & pillows + toilet paper & paper towels). If you are driving here, be sure to bring these extra things so your stay feels more enjoyable.

If you are looking for a place with great views, great hot tub, private- then this is the place for you!! Great location. Literally minutes from everything. Only cons are the steps-64 to be exact, jacuzzi tub does not have powerful jets (that could just be us because we mainly used the hot tub), there were some lady bugs but you will have that in any location down there and it is that time of year. Luckily they keep to themselves! We were pleasantly surprised by the king sized bed! That was a recent upgrade and it was really comfortable! Also beware of the hills. My car- Chevy equilnox struggled going up 1 hill. It made it, it just gets hairy towards the top!

Great visit and beautiful cabin. Other reviews were accurate on the stairs...pack light with backpacks unless you are fully fit. The view and the hot tub are worth the stairs!
Airbnb Review #465896427521745755 #129562 by Review from Airbnb Guest #129562 10/08/2021
Our experience would have been subpar but acceptable if the skylight in our cabin had not leaked a puddle so big into the loft that it leaked through to the first floor while we slept. For that we asked for a refund for the next night because we did not want to sleep in a leaking cabin. The manager was in church when we went to turn our keys in and request the refund, and no one else is able to make the decision in his absence. With the number of checkouts on Sunday and check out time being during church hours, this seems like a bad business decision to have no one else with this authority. We did eventually get a refund for the second night, but not for any of the associated fees.

Other issues with the cabin:
-the company nickel and dimes you on everything they expect you to do when you leave. Don’t do your own dishes? $20 charge, similar for not putting dirty towels in the tub. That seems steep for a company that charged you $60+ in cleaning and maintenance fees. Extra charge if you use more than one roll of toilet paper!

- bare minimum accommodations. We got one towel each for a multiple night stay, even though our cabin has a hot tub. So we were expected to use the same towel to bathe and hot tub. Similar issues with the items provided in the kitchen and even furniture.

-obvious maintenance neglect. First on the hot tub (the jets did not turn on and the cover did not latch) and the skylight (since it was filthy dirty and leaked). Multiple lights would not turn on because bulbs were burned out.

For $260 a night, including fees, we could have stayed in a boutique hotel in the city. The offering for this price range was subpar at best. I gave it two stars because it was clean and we did enjoy the setting and layout of the cabin.

You will never find another place like this! The cabin is literally built into the side of a rock with roughly 80 steps leading up to it. Definitely a place for leg day. The inside was clean and quiet, and the privacy up on the rock behind the trees made everything so peaceful. The hot tub on the back deck sits underneath a rock overhang and is shielded by trees, so we were able to enjoy a relaxing soak after a long day of hiking and kayaking. The bed was very comfortable, which I don't say often while on vacation, and eating breakfast on the front patio and watching the trees sway was beautiful. Make sure to bring a car that can handle going up and down steep hills, although our little hatchback did a fine job.

This was a great cabin in the woods! The hot tub in the rock was really cool and we enjoyed our stay. Be prepared for lots of stairs!
Airbnb Review #429587285045408215 #123311 by Review from Airbnb Guest #123311 08/15/2021
Perfect for a weekend getaway! lots of fun outdoor things to do in the area. I would not recommend for winter months as roads to the cabin are not the best!
Airbnb Review #412204958539497038 #119690 by Review from Airbnb Guest #119690 07/22/2021
The views were beautiful and you can’t beat the price!!!
The cabin was clean when we got there and the stairs are NO JOKE! But overall the hot tub area was amazing! It was private and clean as well! Highly recommend for anyone!
Robert and his staff are sooo friendly and helped answer any of our questions! Far enough away no one bothers you but close enough to all the activities of Red River Gorge!

You will NOT regret booking this property.
10/10, would do again and again!

The road to get there is a little sketchy, but it adds to the uniqueness.

Everything was well maintained and positively gorgeous.

If you are looking for seclusion and a memorable experience, Romance on the Rocks will not disappoint!

Airbnb Review #767232222 #112636 by Review from Airbnb Guest #112636 06/06/2021
This cabin was the perfect anniversary weekend getaway in the Gorge! it was close to every spot we could have wanted to hike or experience, and it created a unique place to crash at the end of the day. Clean, comfortable, and the hot tub was so amazing. If you love uniqueness, comfort, and the outdoors, this cabin will be just the place you're looking for.

Robert's place was a pretty cool place to go to down in the mountains. Love the hot tub built into the sandstone that was awesome. When they called it Romance on the rocks that's exactly what it is.
Airbnb Review #741191624 #102962 by Review from Airbnb Guest #102962 03/30/2021
This place was really remote and up there on the rocks! The hot tub placement is unbelievable. There is a great front porch to sit on and drink your coffee. The place was clean and relaxing . We really enjoyed our stay and would absolutely recommend it. The only issue we ran into was the indoor jacuzzi. I guess the jacuzzi hadn’t been used In a while and had some dirt buildup on the jets. When we turned them on , dirt blasted into the tub. It was unpleasant. When we alerted them of the issue, they sent someone over to fix it promptly.
This location is awesome.. by Amin 12/26/2019
This location is awesome, all the little touches are artistic and if you look for a calm and private place, don’t look anywhere else. The rocks and the hot tub were also fun. You have three porches to sit in there and inhale some fresh air.
This was an awesome cabin! by Chris 08/11/2019
This was an awesome cabin! I don't think you can get much more secluded than this place! You can hardly see it from the road because it's so far up. The road to get there is gravel and hilly/windy but my wife's Mazda handled it ok. Yes the wifi is spotty but you're in a secluded area so that's to be expected. Put the phones down and enjoy the view from the porch or go soak in the hot tub! Location was relatively convenient as well, as it was only a 30 minute or less drive to everything we wanted to do. I'd definitely stay here again!
A must rent!!! by Tia 05/19/2019
A must rent!!!!! The place is super clean & located in the middle of most attractions at the gorge!

We stayed in the "Romance on the Rocks" cabin. It was very nice, clean, secluded, and romantic. The staff was friendly and helpful. My only issue is that there is a no cancellation policy so be very sure of your plans before booking your stay and you should have a memorable experience.
