What is there to do in a remote cabin in the woods of Laurel County, Kentucky?

Read, kayak, canoe, make friends, renew friendships, celebrate, laugh all night, love, be loved, take a nap, sleep in, slow down, leave your cell phone in the car, listen to the birds, swim, soak, reflect, unwind, cook a special recipe, take a walk, and explore an area of Kentucky that — for many — is undiscovered.

For lovers of lake life, Wood Creek is known its beauty, clear water, and gentle atmosphere. (Water-skiing and jet skis aren’t permitted.) Trail heads abound for hikers in and around the Daniel Boone National Forest. This region is one of two areas in the world known for having the most diversity of trees and plant life, the other being in China.

Some of my favorite nearby places to visit include…
