Pet fees are $60 for the first and an extra $30 for the second. And sorry... Due to severe allergies in the family NO CATS allowed.

Q- Are we allowed to hike and fish during our stay?
A- Yes! There are acres of trails and a 5 acre stocked lake to enjoy. We do request NO swimming or boating of any kind due to liability and insurance issues. If you don't have room in your car for the fishing poles, just rent some of ours. We've got you covered.
Q- What do I do with my trash?
A- The main trash for the farm is located at the Charis Cabin.
For Charis guests this means simply walk the trash down the drive to the cans along the road. For Gopher Wood Guests you can either walk/drive your trash down or place it bagged and well sealed in the can located near the Gopher Wood. Detailed instructions are in the cabin for you when you arrive.
We also request that if you pack it in, you pack it out as you enjoy exploring the farm. We do not provide trash receptacles anywhere except in the cabins. So if you take a hike, please bring your trash back to the cabin with you.
Q- Can we have local family visit us during our stay?
A- Yes. Or course. Make yourself at home. We would request no overnight guests unless they are on the reservation and all guests need to follow the rules listed above and below.
Q- Are there grocery stores or restaurants nearby?
A- For last minute forgotten items or a quick grocery run, there is a Dollar General right off the Corinth/Owenton Exit #144 from I-75. It's about 5 miles from the cabins. The closest big box stores are Ruler Foods in Williamstown near the Ark, Walmart in Dry Ridge at Exit #159 or Kroger or Walmart in Georgetown Exit #126. Dry Ridge and Georgetown are 25-30 minutes from the cabin.
Restaurants can be found in Williamstown near the Ark, Dry Ridge 25 minutes north or Georgetown 25 minutes south from the cabins. Each of our cabins have guide books with this information included.

Q- Do your cabins have wi-fi??
A- NO! We are designed to be a get-a-way location for families. We do not provide wi-fi for guests. We do provide lots of toys, games and activities to keep guests busy. And there is lots to explore on the farm. We also provide a lot of extras for a fee like fishing pole rental, stroller rental, telescope rental and MORE! Visit our Store for details on EXTRAS. But you will not find yourself missing wi-fi, TV or streaming channels.
Q- Do your cabins have TVs??
A- Nope! No TV's either. We are truly a getaway location. There is plenty of fun to be had outside! So get out and enjoy God's creation during your stay.
Q- Are reservations refundable??
A- Reservations and add-ons are fully refundable minus a small 4% convenience fee as long as they are cancelled at least 24 hours before your arrival. Last minute cancellations within 24 hours of check in local time, will pay the first night, then any nights after can be cancelled with full refund (no convenience fee when one cancelled night is payed) as long as it is at least 24 hours from check in on that day. We do ask our guests to honor the cost of maintaining a farm and try not to cancel unless absolutely necessary. However, we understand life happens. And don't mind to refund when you have to cancel due to sickness or situations out of your control.
Q- What about church groups??
A- Right now we have the two cabins available and can accommodate groups up to 16 people. We gladly welcome church groups to come fellowship on our farm! It's a great way to getaway and retreat together. We do ask that this be families. We frown upon youth groups without appropriate adult supervision. Keep in mind that we do request anyone under 18 be with a trusted adult when exploring the farm. So if you want to bring a small youth group, we ask there are enough adult chaperones included in the 16 number.
Q- Are the cabins right next to each other??
A-No. They are about .4 miles apart on the same side of the road. Groups wanting to stay together are welcome to drive or walk to the neighboring cabin for fire pit/grill out. But families coming solo need not worry about being bothered by guests in the other cabin. They are far enough apart and the farm is large enough that guests can roam and explore unhindered. And yet close enough together than groups can enjoy time together when needed.
Q- Will my cell phone work at the cabin??
A- Most major cellular carriers work fine on the farm. You can check service on your carrier by using teh following address: 1145 Pleasant Grove Rd ~ Corinth, KY.
Gopher Wood Getaway guests will have the best cell service. There is nothing hindering cell service in this area of the farm. Charis guests should expect their cell service inside the cabin to be limited. The cabin sits down in a valley on the farm, but a quick walk up the hill or drive up the road and phones will work fine. When our family stays there, we usually download things on tablets before we leave. That way they don't have to stream and can run off the device itself.
