Lodging Recommendations?  (North_America: United_States: Kentucky: East: Red_River_Gorge__Climbing_)

My wife and I are headed to RRG in early May for a few days of climbing, and she's not exactly down with camping at Miguel's for three nights, so I need to find us some place to stay. I'd hoped we could stay at Torrent Falls, but they aren't accepting reservations for that period. Does anyone have recommendations on specific cabins to stay at that offer:

1) convenient access to the major crags,
2) a good/nearby breakfast option, and
3) a hot tub or jacuzzi (i know, i know...i don't wanna hear it!)

This could be a specific cabin through one of the main lodging providers (e.g. RR Outdoors), or another private party that would rent it out over the weekend (Thu - Sun, 5/3-5/6).

Much thanks for the help!
Mike

The wife seems set on a cabin. But if you just want a campground that is a bit more private and secluded than Miguels, then there are nice State Park campgrounds. Natural Bridge State Park is pretty close to the crags, and a pleasant place to stay.

thanks wes, yeah, i created that post yesterday ;-)

The wife is set on something with a warm shower...so I think camping is out this time.

Anyone stayed in the Hemlock trail cabins? (A-Frames)

Ah, I didn't even look at the OP. Well, hope you find a nice cabin. I know I am a bit biased, but Red River Outdoors is pretty cool...



and for breakfast...

Yep, a tasty place to get your pre-climbing food needs taken care of!

And, it is one of red river outdoors A-frames, but taken with a 15 mm fisheye (on FF), so there is some distortion.
