Snug Hollow Farm is nestled in the beautiful Red Lick Valley of Estill County in Central Kentucky. It is an organic farm that boasts 300 acres of babbling creeks, glorious wildflowers, abundant wildlife, wooded mountainsides and the simplicity of country life both past and present. The area is Appalachia at its best and a stay is an authentic experience in “holler hospitality.”

Roomy porches are a favorite place to catch a cool breeze as you watch the wildlife by day or stars by night.  Perhaps you may enjoy the cozy chestnut log cabin with fantastic views, handmade quilts and all the comforts of a genuine home in the mountains. 

A secluded Bed & Breakfast, Snug Hollow is described by many of its guests as a safe environment in which to rest, relax and grow. It is a perfect place to experience the unforgettable magic of things still wild and roaming. Whether it is bird watching, lending a hand in the garden, stargazing, silent retreats or a weekend vacation sitting in the sun by the pond, this snug little hollow has a restful charm that may add a new dimension to your life.
