Shade Rock Cabin

3 BR | 1.5 BA | Sleeps 8 | Elizabethtown

  /  Shade Rock Cabin
  • Loading...


Perched proudly overlooking the Ohio River stands a time-honored treasure - an original 1906 log cabin. Stepping inside reveals hardwood floors worn smooth by generations of footsteps, while antique windows frame timeless views of the river. This living relic bears quirks and eccentricities - slightly askew walls and floors that breath as the rock foundation moves underfoot, and doors with character. Outside, a new all-seasons porch and new deck add luxury relaxation to the century old cabin.
