Location

Owenton, Kentucky

Description

Soak up the vintage and rustic charm of Kentucky! We're nestled on top of a ridge with 200 acres of land you can explore while visiting. We have a pond and a large creek that runs right through our property. We have beautiful rolling hills that make for a great landscape to enjoy the sunrise or sunset. We're looking forward to hosting you.

Cleanliness

100% of guests said this spot was as clean as expected during their visit.

Hazards

There is a sportsman club about 10 miles from the farm. During fall time, you may hear gunshots in the distance which may seem more amplified with the way our rolling hills are through this area. Don't be alarmed if you hear anything as there is nothing to worry about while hiking our farm. Being in a rural area, other farmers may target practice from time to time but the closest anyone would be in at least a mile or more.

    Beautiful property to explore! Clear communication from Josh regarding access. Our dogs had a great time! It’s special to have this much open space to yourself. Highly recommend this spot!

  • Judee A., Feb 5, 2024

    This place is truly exceptional! The trails are well-groomed and signposted. Our Labrador Retrievers quickly found the creek and had a wonderful time exploring it. Given the abundance of things to discover, I'll be booking two hours in the future. The host was extremely accommodating, and we plan to return as often as possible.

  • Amanda D., Feb 4, 2024

    A beautiful place to hike with my dogs off leash. Josh was extremely welcoming and my pups had an amazing time and wore themselves out! We’ll definitely be back!

  • Hannah W., Jan 4, 2024

    An amazing property with so much land for us and our pups you roam!

  • Erika C., Dec 16, 2023

    A great spot with a lot of space to explore. Josh was very communicative and the directions were clear. His place has a lot to offer! Thank you!

  • Julia D., Dec 15, 2023

    This Sniffspot is great! My dog absolutely loves coming here. We live about an hour away and it’s worth the drive every time. The host is also very nice and accommodating! I would recommend this spot to anyone looking for a quiet area with endless space for their pup!

    This SniffSpot is THE spot of NKY. It is simply perfect. We have absolutely nothing but spectacular things to say about, and we have recommended to all of our canine friends missing out on this app. The property begins with an open field (maintained mixture of grasses) with a clear even path guiding you down into the woods. There are two different paths to choose from as you descend through the trees towards the creek. The hill is steep; however, it is easy to navigate without worry of keeping your footing. Once we made it to the creek access, there was a large, flat grassy area to romp with sporadic younger trees closer to the creek bed. The creek itself is full of water while still having multiple places for "rock hopping" and exploring. Our pupper had an absolute blast getting wet and muddy doing zoomies through the creek, into the aforementioned forest, and back down into the water. We chose the second route option to climb back up to the homestead, and it honestly was not too difficult. On the way up, there's an additional open field with three massive pine trees offering a scenic route to the pond and deck overhang before making it back home. We have already booked our second visit, and it will certainly not be our last. We highly recommend this property and experience!

    Awesome place and Josh is super nice. Great hike and the dogs absolutely love it. We do rent for two hours so we can spend time at the creek.

  • Theresa S., Nov 27, 2023

    This is one of the few places my very reactive dog could let loose and play. She had a blast!

  • Alan L., Nov 27, 2023

    Always a great place to bring the pups
