We have a total of 6 cabins, providing lodging and activity for domestic and international travelers during the local tourist season.
The 80 acre property is also home to Wendy's businesses, Red River Gorge Natural Health Center, Natural Bridge Acupuncture and Red River Weddings.

Welcome to the Red River Gorge, The Adventure Capital of Kentucky. An area internationally known for its sport climbing, it is also home to Kentucky's only federally designated National Scenic River. Along with surrounding rivers and lakes, it has ample water sport activities. The true highlights of the area are the hiking trails and scenery in the federally designated wilderness areas and at Natural Bridge State Park. Natural Bridge State Park is home to the largest sandstone arch east of the Mississippi River. Red River Gorge and Natural Bridge State Park are very popular tourist areas. That being said, it is a rural location in East Central Kentucky. There are a number of tourism related restaurants and stores in the area. The nearest small towns and grocery stores are 10 miles in any direction. The closest metro area is one hour away in Lexington, Kentucky, a very diverse City with anything one would expect of such.
