About us

   Thankyou for considering the new Red River Gorge Wedding Barn at Appalachian Rose Farm for your Wedding Destination! Lloyd and I feel confident that you will feel the magic once you enter our venue property. Our Wedding & Event Venue has much to offer....forest, water, 2 barns including our Wedding Barn & our Reception Barn w/seating for up to 200, ample parking, his & her bathrooms, Caterer Kitchen Prep room, Bridal Suite/Homeymoon Cottage, Man Cave for the Groom, outddoor wedding arena w/permanent seating "Vintage Pond" & romantic Gazebo & fountain at our Dragonfly Pond. We are located at the #1 Kentucky vacation and resort area, Natural Bridge & Red River Gorge!

    Lloyd and I started in the wedding business around the year 1999 with our "Wedding Gazebo" adjacent to our Natural Bridge Trading Post at exit 33 right off of the Mountain Parkway. A few years later we moved our cabin rental company next door and renamed it "5 Star Cabin Rental". At that time....the state park and our company were the only ones in the resort area with a wedding facility. We were small at the time but we sure had a lot of weddings!

    Lloyd retired from Armco Steel in Middletown, Ohio but was born in Campton, Ky. Lloyd is now a builder/developer and has developed many cabin develpements in the resort area and built many cabins. I have been in the hospitality business for most of my married life....42 years! I started with a Lingerie multi-level business that I created in 1990.  Later on I developed "Get Away Gang Tours",  a Luxury Motorcoach Travel Service dedicated to group travel organizing and escorting groups to various vacation spots.

    I am now serving as a broker for 5 Star Cabin Rental and working with my sons/owners, Rob & Lee and my daughter-inlaws, Dana and Carly. Lloyd and I have 4 beautiful grandchildren, Bailey, Khloe, Baine and Kashlyn.

    I am proud to say that my family is a Christian Family and it is important for us to conduct business in a Christian manner  with Christian values and to  always let our light shine no matter how dark the storm may get!

    Thank you for following us and telling your friends and neighbors about our Red River Gorge Wedding Barn & Event Venue!
