"The Moonshine Inn" is an authentic log cabin overlooking beautiful Wood Creek Lake in East Bernstadt , KY (near London), in the foothills of the Appalachian Mountains. Constructed of logs dating to the early 1800s, the cabin was completely restored in 2018-2019. It is furnished with historic and modern elements, artwork from local artists and all the amenities a visitor could ask for.
We offer a quiet and peaceful escape to "a world away" -- clean air, pure water and almost no people!

O espaço
When Michael McKinney, the proprietor, welcomed his first guests in 2019, they thought it to be "the most beautiful log cabin in the state of Kentucky."
Michael calls it "Moonshine Magic" -- where beauty, history, hospitality and local arts come together. Dr. Kim, one of our first guests, said "It's like living in art."

There are four bedrooms -- two queens and two kings, and a day bed on the upper deck and a comfortable sofa in the den. All bedding is from Tuft & Needle, a great company in Phoenix, Arizona.

Two downstairs bedrooms form the heart of the inn with their log-cabin construction (the logs date to the early 1800s). One has a wood-burning fire place and, in addition to the bed, there are two chairs and a sofa that lend the air of a sitting room. The other features a king-size bed and a wall-hanging created by a local quilter.
Upstairs are two more bedrooms -- these intimate yet airy, with an "attic" feeling and a "cloud" effect on the ceilings hand-painted by a local artist.

Two modern bathrooms, each beautifully tiled by a local artisan, have step-in showers. A half bath is conveniently located upstairs between two bedrooms.
The modern kitchen is equipped with Jenn-Air and Kitchen Aid appliances, dishwasher, disposal, toaster, Breville cabinet-top oven, refrigerator with ice maker, electric oven with gas burners, mixers, food processor, dishes from Pottery Barn, quality knives and utensils, Calphalon triple-core stainless steel cookware, a custom-made dining table of wormed chestnut and three choices for brewing coffee -- a Keurig, a standard pot with filters and a Bodum Chambord French Press.
Exit the kitchen door and walk onto an upper, open air covered deck (12x34) with a splendid view of the woods and lake (no mosquitos). There are two tables for dining. One seats 10-12 and is hand-crafted of native poplar; the other, a more intimate round table for four. There's a three-burner Weber grill, a day bed, overhead fans and special lighting.

Another deck of equal size is below and screened in. We've given it a spa-like atmosphere with colorful seating and towels, night-time lighting and a hot tub for six.
A family room/den is made cozy with comfortable seating and a sectional sofa, flat-screen streaming television (HULU, Netflix, Amazon prime), an authentic copper moonshine still, games in the console and very dependable Wi-Fi.

A pathway, with handrails, leads down to a private floating dock. The lake's natural beauty makes it perfect for kayaks, canoes, water boards, fishing and swimming. The lovely, tranquil 700-acre Wood Creek Lake has a gentle, quiet atmosphere and is known for its pure, clear water. Water skiing and jet skis are not allowed, making is perfect for kayaking and canoeing. Four kayaks with life jackets are available for guests-- complimentary. It's an excellent fishing lake with bass, crappie, trout, bluegill and other varieties.

The region is a popular destination for hikers. This area is part of the Appalachian mixed mesophytic ecoregion, one of two containing the most diverse plant life in the world -- the other being in China. Time spent here with nature can be amazing therapeutic -- the Japanese call it forest bathing.

Guests take advantage of nearby sights such as Cumberland Falls State Park, the Wildcat Civil War battlefield, Rockcastle River Trading Company (you'll be greeted by Buzz Carloftis), Tree Top Adventure at Levi Jackson Park, Michael Angel's Red Dog Chair Company and the gallery and workshop of famed folk artists Lonnie and Twyla Money. Laurel Lake (Holly Bay Marina) is located only l5 miles west of London, making it an easy drive.

Hiking trails abound: check out Van Hook Falls, Dog Slaughter, Pine Island double falls and Sheltowee trace trail.

The nearest Kroger store is six miles south on Highway 25 and, of recent, there are several places in London to purchase wine, beer and spirits.

The Moonshine is a perfect destination for family reunions, honeymooners, special interest groups (such as art, book, writers) and for all travelers who relish the unexpected joys of exploring "off the main roads" of America.

The Moonshine Inn is designed for eight guests.
If you have a party of more than eight (including children), please notify Michael McKinney before you arrive. If approved, there will be an additional lodging fee of $75 per person per day.

Because of our location, parking is limited to passenger cars and pickups. ATVs and four-wheelers are not permitted. If you are coming with a boat, you can launch nearby but please give Michael a little notice so he can help.

IN TODAY'S WORLD

We understand the outbreak of the COVID-19 virus brings uncertainty to you as a traveler, and we'd like for you to know your safety and peace of mind is of upmost importance. At the Moonshine Inn, we adhere to (and in some cases exceed) the very highest standards of cleaning and disinfecting as outlined by the Centers for Disease Control. In fact, we were practicing these cleaning protocols prior to the pandemic.
In this environment, it is important that we take care of each other -- we want to protect your health, and ours too. When we greet you we will be wearing a mask.

PET FRIENDLY

The Moonshine is pet friendly. The pet fee is $45 per dog (limit of two) and is due on arrival. If you prefer, you may remit the fee in advance by check payable to "Michael McKinney," 558 Lake Road, East Bernstadt, KY 40729. Sorry, we do not accept cats.

PARKING, RECEPTIONS, ADDITIONAL GUESTS

The Moonshine Inn is located on a quiet country road, and we are respectful of our neighbors (which are only a few). Parking is limited to five passenger cars. No four-wheelers are permitted.
Any events planned by guests, such as a reception, must be limited to twelve persons, and must be approved in advance by Michael McKinney.

The Moonshine Inn will very comfortably accommodate 8 persons and occupancy is normally limited to that number. If you wish to request an additional guest or two (including infants), please inform us in advance. The fee for additional guests is $75 per person per day.

OUR COLORFOUL COMPANION PROPERTY

The colorful "Bijou de Lune" guest house is located nearby. With one queen bed, it's best suited for two adults (or two with a small child). The Bijou ("jewel of the moon") is located at the end of a long gravel driveway in a stunning location with the lake on one side and a steep outcropping of rocks on the other.

East Bernstadt, Kentucky, Estados Unidos

There is something magical here, and most everyone agrees that the magic begins almost immediately as you turn onto our little road, then slowly descend into the woods, past the "big rock," then through a series of twists and turns. The sensation is akin to leaving what was for something unexpected. Don't mind the DEAD END sign. Keep going. We're just a little farther up the hill on the right. Look for the flags out front.

The Moonshine is a place to reflect, celebrate, read, kayak, canoe, make friends, renew friendships, laugh all night, love, be loved, take a nap, sleep in, slow down, be silent, jump in, soak, prepare a special recipe, take a walk and explore an area of Kentucky that--for many--is undiscovered.

We offer a quiet and peaceful bit of heaven. I hope you will consider a visit and experience the Moonshine Magic for yourself.

Grew up in Texas...graduate, Baylor University...Peace Corps volunteer in Honduras...relocated to Kentucky in 1969...writer, The Courier-Journal/Louisville...owner, McKinney Associates, a booking agency for professional speakers and entertainers. Now active as owner of the Moonshine Inn. I love people! I love hosting. We are committed to providing the very best service and maintaining our Inn on par with a very fine hotel. My assistant is Arlene Sizemore, Innkeeper. I appreciate our local artists, and their creations are displayed throughout the cabin. For the asking, I will take you on a tour to meet some of the artists and see their work first hand. My passions are fishing and cooking! My partner Roger and I live just a short walk from the Moonshine Inn. He is writer for the cable channel, Turner Classic Movies. Best dogs: Livingston (mostly Beagle) and Nick, a Shetland Sheepdog. I am a happy man. The Moonshine Inn is perfectly suited for vacationers, family reunions, honeymooners, anniversary celebrations, weddings, small receptions, baby showers, class reunions, special interest groups such as book and art clubs, romantic get-a-ways, guests visiting London (who want more than a hotel), and for all who appreciate peace and nature. The creative setting makes it ideal for business meetings and retreats. The magic begins when you turn onto our little blacktop, descend into the woods, past the "big rock" then through a series of twists and turns, then up the hill and on the right, you have arrived. For whatever reason brings you to us, we say... "Welcome to the Moonshine Inn. No drudgery, worry or anxiety is allowed here--only creativity, reflection and joy." Come for a stay and experience the magic yourself. Let the moon shine in.
