Snug Hollow Farm Bed & Breakfast

Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed October 21, 2012

This was the second time I've stayed at Snug Hollow. This time it was to celebrate my 50th b-day with my Mom and 2 sisters. Everything about our stay was so perfect, my family couldn't stop raving about how wonderful it was. The "Pearl" bedroom has a queen (king?) bed in the center and then 2 vintage twin beds on each side of the large room. Perfect for 4 people, and lounging around and talking all night. There is a balcony porch that looks over the beautiful land. We arranged to have Barbara make dinner for us, which was amazing! I advise doing this, as you won't want to leave the place, and the food is A+. It was a picture perfect fall day and we took a walk around the grounds, the woods and up to the pond. I believe my sisters took 500 photos! Breakfast was delicious too! I recommend this for a girl's get-away, as well as a couple's romantic weekend. We also went to Tater Knob pottery close by and enjoyed the demonstrations and conversations with the owner- as well as cookies and coffee. I travel a lot and stay at cabins and B&B's and have to say this one is my favorite!

Oh My Gosh, what a fun place to visit and take photos. Barbara is the greatest hostess ever and her food is to die for. You gotta eat dinner in the relaxing dining room and breakfast on the screened porch with all the delightful delicious foods. The home is so inviting and the bedrooms are so beautifully decorated and so homey. Each area of the home is so inviting to just sit and relax and read the many magazines she has to offer. The porches with the swings are wonderful to look out over the beautiful countryside. The lake is so inviting and I took so many photos of the lake and and used the hammock to rest. Barbara immediately upon arrival seems like and old friend awaiting your arrival and showing you around. The old log cabin which several so many people is so inviting and was Barbara's home for many years. The second cabin is beautiful and homey. Barbara loves to tell her story of Snug Hollow. Her staff is so friendly and are old friends when you leave. This little Snug Hollow is a peaceful, getting back to nature and knowing that God had a hand in this little bit of heaven. As the others reviewed always close the gate so the cows don't get out and go down the road into the holler and come to the most wonderful experience you will have. Barbara we are coming back, thanks for such an inviting place to views God's country and relax. Be sure to bring your camera. Oh Yes! the dinner bell rings 10 minutes before your meals. Loved watching Barbara ring the bell.

The Snug Hollow Inn is a delightful enigma. One part charming bed and breakfast and one part epicurean vegetarian hospitality from homegrown and locally grown farms. It's in a beautiful hollow that branches off from a spectacularly gorgeous valley road inside the lovely and graciously ancient Appalachian foothills.

This inviting, quaint and cozy country inn isn't tucked away exactly. No, you passed tucked away long before you arrive. It's more like the secret room inside the secret room inside the secret room, like a Russian nesting doll. Just keep going and don't be fazed by the trailer or the hay bales or the mannequin in the shed window. No, keep going, over cattle grates and when you come to a cattle fence, well, yes, one of you is going to have to get out and open that cattle go so you can proceed to the Snug Hollow Inn. Oh, and please close the gate after you come through!

After another quarter mile or so down the one lane gravel road brings you to a lovely set of cabins - you're here. Barbara will probably greet you and give you a tour. Her friendly staff will make sure you are comfortable.

The rooms and cabins are very clean and comfortable and full of artsy, informal country charm.

Barbara is a focused organic vegetarian farmer and chef, so you will want to indulge breakfast and dinner if you are able. We could never have expected what we experienced, but we were very happily surprised by the beautiful hollow, the comfortable inn, the delicious meals, the friendly staff, the artistic vibe, and the unique flavor of this one of a kind burgoo.

Room Tip: There are two delightful cabins, you can't go wrong. In the main cabin, there are also two room...

A little slice of nirvana in KY. An extremely beautiful setting. Very quiet and peaceful. Lovely owls calling out to each other at night. Spectacular stars in the night sky.
Excellent vegetarian breakfast. Simple, delicious, and filling. Just right. The biscuits and gravy were so delicious, even carnivores will not miss the meat in this dish.
Warm, charming host. Added "And world peace" to our morning blessing, and tries to source all things local. She's got her principles in the right place.
A privilege to be able to share in this lovely spot for a weekend.

Barbara and her staff are wonderful and made us feel welcome immediately. The Cozy Cottage was sweet and private. Everything you need is there, including an amazing porch overlooking the country. Exploring the 300 acres is fun and we saw deer every night on our evening walk. If you cycle, bring your bike! The winding country roads are perfect for a day out on the bike. We had originally planned on eating only one night with the group, but everyone was so friendly and the food was so wonderful, we ended up eating every night at the house. We will definitely be back!

This is our second visit and we could not wait to get back. We've traveled quite a bit and stayed in a range of bed and breakfasts, but this is definitely the standard. First, we love Kentucky and Snug Hollow is in a part that makes you feel like you are seeing real Kentucky beauty (not simply tourist beauty). Second, it's the ultimate in peace and quiet. It's in the middle of hundreds of beautiful hilly, pond and stream filled, garden filled, animal/bird/butterfly filled acres...and that's after driving miles from the nearest small town (I say this in the best way possible). Finally, it's not simply a nice place to stay, but one where you can feel and see the history of the farm, hear amazing, local stories from the hostess and eat the only food that I've ever had which has the taste of the best restaurant, but with the quality of a home cooked meal (as it is). If you are considering a vacation where you want a real taste of Kentucky, or you want a true, restful B&B getaway (or both)...it would be a mistake not to visit Snug Hollow.

Room Tip: Each house is different. One is a several hundred year old cabin (which I loved...a true old Kentuc...

We stayed in the cabin by the creek which is very nice, open, airy. Though temps were over 100 degrees during the days, we opened all the doors, windows and used the fans for our first night so we could enjoy the sounds of nature. The a.c. window unit in the cabin provided plenty of cool air when we needed it. The view from our porch was spectacular, the food was fabulous! All for such a good price. Barbara, Olivia, et al really "get it" and I can't wait to return!
