One bedroom with private bath, eat-in kitchen, foyer, dining room. Historic home. Claw-footed bathtub in bath. Shower head with hose in tub, though no shower. Screened-in back porch, new brick patio and grill. Peace and quiet, yet close to town and nearby Lexington and Red River Gorge. You will find few places like this. Rustic, sumptuous, elegant, well-loved.

The space
Victorian Cottage artists' retreat nestled on 56- acre farm in rural Kentucky. Suitable for two people. Beautiful architectural detail. Screened-in back porch, new brick patio and grill, front porch with swing. Pond with deck. Peace and quiet, yet close to town and nearby Lexington and the Red River Gorge.
It is possible to rent the adjacent bedrooms depending on availability. These are prices separate. The Savannah is a wonderful retreat for writers, artists and those seeking peace and quiet. I have spent the last fifteen years restoring my home and surrounding farm. I am creating a wildlife sanctuary and restoring the land to native grasses and flowers. It is luxurious and rustic. It's a farmhouse, and you could see a critter or two.

Birds in the trees, frogs in the pond.
Relax, take walks, sleep, sing, paint a painting, write a book, drive to nearby attractions and enjoy the gorgeous natural surroundings.

I am CD Collins, owner of The Savannah Retreat. I am writer who divides my time between Kentucky and Massachusetts. I have spent the last ten years restoring my beautiful Victorian farmhouse so I and guests may enjoy a quiet, beautiful retreat. I have devoted my life to my writing and to pursuing social justice. Although I may not be in town during your visit, your host and Innkeeper, Gordon will look after you. You may also call my cell phone at any time. My house reflects my values, a love of nature, books, and the knowledge that respecting each other and the natural world is the key to a good life. I want you to rest, relax, create and truly enjoy the rustic elegance of this farmhouse.
