Over The Gorge We Go September 3, 2022

Posted by nrhatch in Life Balance, Mindfulness, Nature, Travel & Leisure.

Are you a sleepwalker?

This is NOT the Airbnb for you.

Do you like to cook on vacation . . . bringing bags and bags of groceries with you?


Afraid of heights?

Do NOT, under any circumstance, rent this place for your next weekend get-away.

On the other hand, this place is PERFECT for those who are physically fit, in good health, and light packers.

Light as in backpacks NOT steamer trunks.

Some experience with flying, base jumping, and skydiving would be helpful.


Over the Gorge we go . . .

This Kentucky Airbnb, a one-bedroom, one-bath property suspended high above the Red River Gorge, is an acrophobe’s nightmare.

Reaching your rental requires climbing suspended stairs hundreds of steps long, with more climbing to retire for the evening

Personally, I’d love to spend the night . . . as long as I’ve got a sherpa to schlep my gear!

If you click on any of the links, you be able to see more amazing, cringe-worthy photos.

Aah . . . a September to Remember!

It does look pretty cool, but not for me! LOL! My son would probably love it though.

I would love to visit for the day . . . and leave before dark. Oh, yes, on a calm day with no heavy winds!

joyroses13 - September 3, 2022

Yes, definitely no heavy winds. Can you imagine being in there when a sudden storm comes up!

nrhatch - September 4, 2022

YOWSA! That would make for a nail-biting experience!

Nope, nope, nope

nrhatch - September 3, 2022

Can you imagine what it would be like for you in the morning?

Going to get your Mocha Latte would be some trek! Especially on a snowy, windy, or rainy day.

Kate Crimmins - September 3, 2022

Again nope, nope, nope

nrhatch - September 4, 2022

That seems to be the general consensus. My brother says he’d like to see the blueprints and inspection report before heading over.

3. Ally Bean - September 3, 2022

Not for me, thanks. Oh my!

nrhatch - September 3, 2022

I’d love to visit, but I wouldn’t want to live there. Just carrying in the groceries would be such an ordeal.

I also wonder about whether the plumbing and electric connections are reliable. 😀

Ally Bean - September 3, 2022

Red River Gorge is a popular destination for people on vacation who live around here. I’ve never been but have been led to believe it’s all rustic– and the rapids are dangerous, even if you know what you’re doing.

nrhatch - September 4, 2022

Nature can be quite enticing even amid dangerous conditions.

We went white water rafting in Colorado once. Loved it, but it was a rip roaring ride!

4. Rivergirl - September 3, 2022

Love it! Though my bad knee would never let me enjoy it.

nrhatch - September 3, 2022

I could do it once or twice, but a week living here would do me in ~ knees, especially.

It’s good to know our limitations. 😀

5. Debra - September 4, 2022

There is so much about this place that appeals to me, but I’m sure if given the opportunity I likely wouldn’t have the nerve. It’s certainly unique. 🙂

nrhatch - September 4, 2022

We can head over on a calm day, just to satisfy our curiosity. After a quick peek, we can head back across to safety. Are you in? 😀

6. L. Marie - September 6, 2022

While it seems lovely, there’s no way, I would step out over that gorge. No way.

nrhatch - September 6, 2022

Staying on terra firma seems reasonable to me, LM!
