What to Expect During Your Stay:

We love that you chose us for your unique place to stay during your trip to Central Kentucky. Our hope is to make your stay truly fabulous. Here’s what you can expect from Siloam Valley while being a guest at our Gopher Wood Getaway.

The Cabin:

The entire cabin will be yours. Please make yourself at home and enjoy the serenity. The property owners do live on site in a separate dwelling. If you need anything during your stay, don’t hesitate to ask! You can also reach the property manager for help.

There is one bunk room with 2 twin bunks that sleep 4. We do provide sheets and bedding for your stay. We do not offer daily cleaning service. If you should need extra bedding, just let us know. There is also a Euro sleeper. The bedding for this is kept in the closet in the bedroom.

Our bathroom has one standing shower, a sink, mirror and toilet. We will provide enough towels for every person listed on the reservation. This includes a bath towel, hand towel and wash cloth. Again, we do not offer daily cleaning services. If you should need any new towels during your stay, please let us know.

There is no TV or wi-fi available at our Gopher Wood Getaway. In fact, due to the rural location there is no wi-fi on the entire campus. It just isn’t available in that area. Most cellular providers work fine from the cabin. So your cell phones should be sufficient should you need to access the world. We also do not have a land line in the cabin. It truly is a “getaway” location.

We do keep some games, cards, activities, books and etc in a small cabinet in the bedroom. Feel free to make yourself at home.

We have an AC/Heat unit in the main living room. There are ceiling fans in each main room. We also leave a space heater in the closet during the winter months in case you need more heat in the bedroom.

The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, kitchen utensils, plates, bowls, oven, range, sink, etc. Everything you need to make meals should be found in the kitchen cabinets. If you find yourself needing something you can’t find, just let us know. Due to space the refrigerator is small. If you need more space, you are welcome to keep a cooler on the porch. Just be mindful to put fresh foods in the inside refrigerator to avoid any critters helping themselves.


Our cabin is located in Owen County which is the deer mecca of the state. If you sit quietly on the porch in the mornings and evenings, don’t be surprised if you find deer very close to the front porch.

There are variety of birds that visit the cabin. See how many you can spot!
