World Travelers

Friends since the ‘70s reunite at “little gem”

“We very much enjoyed our stay at Snug Hollow, where we stayed in The Cabin by the Creek. This was our first visit to Kentucky, and we made the trip to catch up with a friend whom we had not seen since the mid 1970s. We stayed for several days and had a very pleasant and relaxing time there. Highlights of the trip were Barb’s excellent hospitality and food, as well as visiting the attractive surrounding woods, lakes and towns. We have traveled extensively worldwide and we consider Snug Hollow to be a little gem.”

Canadians drive all the way to the holler

“We arrived at 8:00 pm after a day’s drive from Toronto, Ontario, Canada, to a welcome by Barbara as if we were coming home for the weekend! She invited us to her table for dessert, where there were friends, neighbors and guests assembled. That became the theme for the weekend—meeting lots of Kentuckians, guests from the UK and elsewhere—around a table for dinner and breakfasts. Barbara’s famous food was tied in first place with the amazing setting in these hills and the ‘holler’! And the highlight was when Barbara arranged the tickets to a sold out concert by J.D. Crowe and his band at Meadowgreen Bluegrass Music Park. A real bluegrass concert—a real Appalachian day, with an amazing and gracious host.”

Seasoned travelers love B&B near home

“We wanted a place to escape not far from home, and had tried a few other places when we discovered Snug Hollow. The rugged beauty, the quiet punctuated only by natural sounds, the peaceful hikes, the vegetarian meals, the wonderful company of Barbara Napier, only barely more than an hour from home: this was the place. We have experienced fall colors and the quiet beauty of new-fallen snow; we have joined interesting company from all over for delicious meals, and have eaten there all alone, with only Barbara’s lovely company. We have rocked on the porch, watched deer, and simply stood on a trail, soaking in the atmosphere. We have vacationed all over, in the USA, Canada, and Europe, but think on none of these with more affection than that with which we view the relaxed setting of Snug Hollow.”
