The Farm House at Good Spring Farm was home to several families before its latest incarnation as an Inn. Built in the early 1920’s by Grant Taylor, the original log house sheltered tenant farmers and the Taylor family for many years. The core of the house was a traditional Kentucky cabin made of logs, with a stone fireplace in the downstairs room and a loft above heated by wood stove. Today the lean-to kitchen has been expanded and a dining area with large windows looks out over the farm. The stone fireplace is still used for heat.Good Spring Farm, a Kentucky Centennial Farm owned and farmed by the Taylor family for over 100 years, is a typical hill farm producing cattle, timber and hay. Many years ago the land provided all the family needed to survive; gardening, hunting, fishing, supplemented row crops. With prohibition and a ready supply of corn, moonshine whiskey was perhaps the most profitable crop. This story and others are part of the Taylor legacy in an area of Kentucky steeped in mountain culture.The Farm House Inn is your hideaway for walks along magnificent cliff lines, through a diverse forest to water falls, rock houses and wildlife areas. Two farm ponds provide good fishing, and for those who just want to enjoy a great view with peace and quiet accented by bird songs, there’s a great place to sit on the porch.
