Pine Croft Cottage is a hidden gem in Berea KY and is the perfect destination to stay if you want a little privacy for a friend gathering or special occasion. It is located at the base of the Pinnacles and is only 2 miles from town.
This past weekend I hosted a surprise 50th birthday gathering in Berea, KY for my husband. I invited our college friends to come into town to visit and planned a weekend together that none of us will ever forget.
Pine Croft Cottage hidden gem Berea KY:
I wanted a location for my husband and his two best buddies to be able to stay together. Pine Croft Cottage was the perfect spot! It is the perfect place to stay if you would like some peace and quiet while still enjoying everything Berea has to offer. My other friends who came into town stayed at The Historic Boone Tavern Hotel.
Pine Croft is a piece of Berea and Appalachian History. It was built for Ms. Anna Ernburg, a native of Sweden who was brought to Berea College to oversee the Fireside Industries and the weaving program at Berea College. The cottage sits next to the Berea College Forest and the pinnacles hiking trails. The trails are actually connected to the property which makes it super convenient for hikers.
This hidden gem of a property honestly feels out of storybook when you drive back to the cottage. It is secluded and hard to believe that is only 2 miles away from town.
This 2000 square foot cottage provided them each with their own room. It features three bedrooms, two bathrooms, a large living room, big kitchen (with natural gas stove) and an eat in dining table and a small sitting area where you can also play the legendary game, skittles.
In addition, it had a nice back patio with gas grill and plenty of seating and a delightful screened in porch where the guys sat each morning enjoying their coffee and chatting.
It is owned by Berea College and managed by The Historic Boone Tavern. Pine Croft Cottage is two stories, it has ramp access for the main building, and 1 bedroom downstairs for any ADA needs. The downstairs bathroom contains a walk-in shower along with a washer and dryer.
Upstairs there are two bedrooms with a bathroom and both of the rooms were huge! One had two chairs and the other had one. It was really amazing how much closet space each room offered too. We loved all the Berea College furniture too!
The “cabin” as my husband and his buddies called it was so enjoyable. It was much larger than we anticipated and allowed for everyone to find their own space as well as enjoy each other’s company.
