The cabin was as described, very cute and quaint. King bed was very comfy and line s were clean.
Bring your own condiments, paper towels as prior guests may have grabbed them.
Very close to all attractions. Took a nice drive on a rainy day up 715 to 77, relaxing and very scenic.
Definitely worth the stay!

Great cabin that's tucked away in the woods. It's quiet and peaceful and makes for an excellent retreat.

Love love loved this cabin. Perfect for 1 adult, 2 teens, and 2 lil ones. Creek runs behind the cabin that allowed for a lot of exploring and rock collecting. Maintenance issue addressed immediately and fixed within 2 hrs of call. We would definitely stay here again. Plus it was super easy to get to and park at.

Expect an amazing place with an amazing hot tub. The bed is so comfy except I wish I brought my own pillows because I’m a bit picky about them. Their coffee machine is amazing! You can either use a pot or keurig pods for on the go. The tv is a roku tv with access to Netflix and such which was so nice. It’s in a great location and a great spot for sure worth the price. I will definitely be returning!

Relaxing cabin and perfect location! Bring some extra towels if you plan on using the hot tub often or are traveling with kiddos. We genuinely enjoyed our time there and plan on revisiting soon!

Star gap is a wonderful stay. If anything, the property is undersold with its current description. A small creek keeps you company while on the porch or by the camp grill/fire - what a treat. The cherry on top was the electric fireplace not mentioned in the listing, so relaxing.

While more than accessible with a compact with front wheel drive, be careful pulling out of the drive. Locals take the road quickly and a hill leaves the drive slightly less visible.

Wifi worked great for streaming NCAA games and working from home with video conferencing.

Would definitely stay again and have already recommended to friends.

This is the perfect little cabin! It is in a great location for exploring the gorge. We would love to come back and stay next time we are in the area!

Airbnb Review #567433507678638558 #144019 by Review from Airbnb Guest #144019 02/27/2022
Nice place in a good location. The cabin is pretty and would be ideal for a family of 4, a couple, or 2 couples. The parking space is huge, but be careful if you have a low-clearance vehicle since there's a drop (or a motorcycle because the gravel is pretty loose). It was pretty clean, but there were a bunch of linens in the dryer when we arrived and we had to re-wash a bunch of dishes that were in the cabinet with stuff stuck on them. Overall, a good place to stay if you're at rrg and want a cabin with a hot tub. I wish they had left us more than 1 dishwasher pod, but it wasn't a huge deal.

Important advice: check-in is not at the location that pops up in google-maps when you click the link (in fact, that will also take you 3 .iles past the cabin), they've got an office at a separate location with the key and directions to the cabin.
Airbnb Review #528926800976491381 #138433 by Review from Airbnb Guest #138433 01/10/2022
Excellent destination; the cabin and surroundings were excellent (big fan of the creek which ran under the deck; photos understated how pleasant it is). Cleanliness left something to be desired: arrived to find dirty dishes (last guest made egg casserole?) still in the dishwasher, and some dirty dishes in the drawers and cabinets. Very barebones supplies too - needed to purchase TP and trash bags during our stay (not readily available at the store the office is located in), and recommend bringing your own kitchenware if you're picky about your setup and plan to cook. Overall, very worth it if you come fully prepared.

Great cabin! It was perfect for a small getaway for my husband and I. Check in and out was very easy. We enjoyed the hot tub and the cleanliness of the entire cabin. It’s easily accessible and close to main attractions, yet you still get that cabin in the woods feel.

Great experience and place to stay at. We had a great time!!! The scenery was the best and the serenity in the air.
Airbnb Review #433290797598208282 #124093 by Review from Airbnb Guest #124093 08/21/2021
A very clean and well maintained cabin. It is close to a well traveled road but our host gave us lots of communication of emergency road work happening just up the hill. Great location close to Slade. We loved the hot tub, the satellite t.v. and the comfy king size bed - just 2 of us so did not use the loft. Kitchen is nice with dishes, utensils and cups and mugs. Dishwasher and washer dryer are a nice bonus! 2 dressers in downstairs bedroom but beware extra pillows and linens take half of them. Closet but bring some hangers. Nice bathroom with good water pressure. Enjoyed our stay in a very friendly place!! We would recommend this cabin!

A great location and nice place to get away and enjoy Red River Gorge. Easy to find and get to the cabin and attractions. The host communicated well and even though the hot tub was not available they worked with us to make sure we were still satisfied. Overall, enjoyed the stay and would be nice for a small family or group.
Airbnb Review #408680610234347875 #118887 by Review from Airbnb Guest #118887 07/26/2021
The cabin was as pictured inside. The cabin sits much closer to the road than the pictures make it seem. Pick up trucks FLY up and down the winding road at all hours of the day and night. Having dogs with us made this fairly stressful.
The women at the cabin rental office were far from friendly when picking up or dropping off keys. Communication was horrible. No phone calls or voicemails were answered or returned.
Overall the stay was fine but we found a new cabin for our second night and had a much more pleasant and beautiful stay!
Airbnb Review #407232446547788341 #118576 by Review from Airbnb Guest #118576 07/16/2021
A great place for a small family or couple to relax in solitude. Beautiful wooded location with a creek behind the cabin. The cabin itself was very clean aside from some mold along the washer door seal, likely from people closing the washer door in between uses. Do plan on bringing oven-safe cookware if you plan to use the oven, paper towels, foil if needed, and any seasonings/oil you'll need for cooking. Beds are comfy, good water pressure, and AC and hot tub both work well. A very tranquil place to stay.

We really enjoyed our stay at Star Gap this past weekend! The cabin is situated on a quiet road, surrounded by nature and an adorable little creek that goes right past it. It's close to Natural Bridge and Red River Gorge, and the restaurants in the area. Was a great place to relax after long days of hiking.
