Kentucky, a mix of different cultures and ideologies, is subdivided into six regions based on rock structure. It’s also called the Bluegrass State, named after bluegrass, a certain type of grass that is abundant in the six regions. This state is from where bourbon originated, and you can visit its distilleries by following the Kentucky Bourbon Trail, which starts at Frazier Museum, where you can learn all about the state. Catch the annual Kentucky Derby, the pinnacle of thoroughbred horse racing in the USA. For a nature-filled trip, visit Daniel Boone National Forest, featuring various natural landscapes that are sure to give you a thrilling experience. Kentucky is also where Abraham Lincoln was born, and you can study his story in Abraham Lincoln Birthplace National Historical Park.

Get up close with the wild outdoors in Woodlands Hills, a 1,200-sq. ft. (111-sqm) countryside log cabin. The whole property spans 70 ac (28.3 ha), including a small trail for you to explore. The best part is that they provide farm-fresh eggs and honey, depending on the season, for making fresh food, snacks, and beverages.
For relaxation, there’s a bathtub and a hot tub outside on the deck. Also, there’s a pool that’s spacious enough for big groups of people. After swimming, have a nice barbecue and gather by the fire pit for an evening well spent.

If you’re looking for a well-maintained farm offering tons of activities, then Sweet Hollow Farm is for you. Its saltwater pool is all that you can ask for: large, furnished with seating, and equipped with pool toys. Just outside of the pool area is a pergola-covered seating area, so you can stay cool while taking in views of the farm. Vist in June and July to get fresh berries.
The yard is manicured and dotted with trees but still offers clear skies that are great for stargazing. To make the most of the natural setting, cook up something nice on the grill and relax beside the fire pit.

Set 2 mi (3.2 km) away from Kentucky Lake, one of the largest man-made lakes in the USA, this comfy two-bedroom home is situated in a wooded area full of chirping birds. The seasonal pool is private, and you’re free to use it at any time of the day. It’s great for those with a reaction to chlorine, as it uses non-chlorine chemicals. Leading to the pool is a large, elevated wooden deck with seating amenities, a perfect spot for alfresco meals. Also, if you have kids, they’ll love running around the playground.
If you plan to fish in the lake, there’s a parking area for your boat and three cars and it has plug-ins for batteries as well.
