“beautiful cabin with a personal touch”

Reviewed 7 Sep 2013

The cabin was incredible as it was hand built by Bud. Everything was clean and in working order. The heron's nest offered an amazing view across the river. Bud offers true southern hospitality while allowing you to do your own thing. We will be returning .

Response from the owner If it was not for such Wonderful guests as you all, we could not offer these Log Homes for your comfort & Enjoyment. Thank You for your appreciation and support, from the bottom of our hearts. Bud & Michelle.

We stayed in the Heron's Nest for a family reunion. It was a wonderful! Both the reunion and the cabin and the stay. Being on the river was a different experience for me as I'm used to lakes and beaches. But it was superlative! The morning mists cloaked the river in a blanket of fog from which trees, water, and the occassional barge emerged slowly over the early morning. The chimes played a quiet background vibrant hum that was quite appropriate. I sat out on the deck and watched the mists rise and dissipate then watched the sunlight play as sparkling diamonds over the water. It was wonderful and I did some writing in this wonderful environment. I plan to come back just for myself in the future. I wouldn't have left but I had to come back to the big city for my job. The cabin is multi-storied and big. Each of us, singly or as a mini-group, had our own level and plenty of room. Bug and Michelle and the rest of the staff are very warm and wonderful people and made us feel like family. The area abounds in so many things to do! Some days we just stayed in and grilled and enjoyed being there. Others we went out hiking, caving, and exploring. We definately all want to come back again next year! We had a wonderful time and now have wonderful memories! I would highly recommend these cabins and the Heron's Nest in particular. It's nicely situated on the river to watch the river and the small amount of river traffic (which are actually very nice to watch). And has a nice hot tub, campfire area, dock, etc. It's in nicely quietly remote yet not too far from a lot of fun things to do. Five stars! - Grant

Response from the owner Yes, our River Log Homes always await your return with wide open views of Sun & Moon Rises, & the return of your gentle smiles & bear hugs for the Family. We look forward to your visit of Relaxation, Enjoyment, & the opportunity to reconnect with Family & Friends! It just doesn't get any better than Laughing with Loved ones. Thank You so much. Sincerely, Bud & Michelle.

We truely enjoyed our stay here in the Herons Nest. It is right on the water and also offers a dock that you can tie your boat up too. The cabin is clean and very well kept. Everything is provided and all you do is add food and anything else that might make you comfortable. We will use them again. Bud is and excellent host.

Response from the owner YAAYY! We were confident that our Gorgeous "Heron's Nest" would be satisfactory for your boating needs, & creature comforts!

“Colucci Castle Christmas in October”

Reviewed 6 Nov 2011

We have been back from Colucci Cabins less than a week and I would go back at the drop of a hat. With family spread out in Ohio, Tennessee, Utah and Illinois, we decided to try having an early Christmas to avoid the worry of winter travel and alleviate the scheduling problems that come with wanting to spend time with both sides of married children's families. We wanted a place we could spend time together not sitting in motel rooms and eating in restaurants. We found exactly that. We stayed in the Castle which was just perfect for a group. There were plenty of beds, bathrooms and a large kitchen area. The cabin was supplied with plenty of fresh linens, cooking utensils and a huge gas grill. There were no hidden costs. The cabin was extremely clean and we felt so at home. There was enough to do within driving distance for horseback riders, wine tasters, historical sight seers and hikers. Although we had cool weather, we were still able to enjoy a weiner roast and time spent around the fire. With two flat screen televisions and a pool table, we never ran out of things to do around "home" whether we wanted to stay in our large group or split up. We enjoyed seeing Betty Ray's landing and driving through the winding hills. If what you are looking for is a get away from the hustle and bustle and meeting a fantastic owner I recommend you call Bud and reserve a cabin. It was unanimously voted we do early Christmas annually. Our thanks to Bud and his cabin for making this a wonderful memorable experience.

Response from the owner Ho Ho Ho, Christmas in November! When Family get together, EVERY DAY is your Celebration! It was Great seeing all the Families come together for Laughter, Cooking & Playing together, from infants to Great Grandparents. It just could NOT get any better than that! We truly appreciate your kind words, & we promise that your next stay will be just as much FUN! Christmas in July, water skiing with a Santa Hat?! Our Love, Bud & Michelle.

“My wife, four children, and our dog all had a blast!!!”

Reviewed 31 Oct 2011

We stayed at the Heron's nest in October (2011) and had a great experience. Check-in with Bud was a breeze, the four story cabin was amazing and the kids (and our dog) enjoyed every single level. Nightly campfires followed by a visit to the hot tub right out our back door were real treats. Kitchen was fully equiped with pots, pans, dishwasher, and even some cooking ingredients. The scene of the Ohio River was incredible. We were there three days and two nights and none of our kids wanted to leave. Very appreciative of Bud shipping our son's DSI that he left there back to us so promptly. We would highly recommend this to anyone who is looking for a couple's getaway or for a large family looking for a place to stay where you won't feel cramped or crowded. You will not be disappointed with your visit!!!

Response from the owner It was SO Great meeting you & your Wonderful Family! You all are truly Blessed with your Love of life, and the Happiness that you all exude with your playful interactions. You are Lucky people, & we are just counting down the days for your next River Celebration. Thanks Sincerely, Bud & Michelle.

“The Flagship of the Cabin Fleet!”

Reviewed 19 Sep 2011

We do a "girls getaway" once a year. Since finding Colucci Log Cabins, we have gone no where else. We have sampled all but the 2 smaller cabins, that's only because of our large group. We've been coming since 2004 to see our friend Bud a most wonderful host. His cabins are simply beautiful as well as comfortable. We need only bring our food and clothing, the cabins are well stocked from top to bottom. We so enjoy the breath taking view of the river and surrounding area. The hot tub fresh & clean ready to go. A washer and dryer! Easy access to the boat ramp for fishing or boating pleasure. Bud's craftsmanship is awesome, each cabin has it's own special signature detail. When I go to"The Nest" and look out the window I feel like the Captain of a mighty ship. The Bonnie Pearl has a hand made copper cupola. Le Chalet has a wonderful turret with large windows around the winding staircase. The Buzzards Roost has a commanding view of the River and surrounding area from on high atop the area. This year 2011 we stayed in the new Castle Colucci. A great big kitchen area with a huge table we could all gather around for food, fun and fellowship. We spent a good deal of our time on the twin decks either rocking and talking or soaking in the hot tub.Saturday night was a big bonfire right on the edge of the bank of the mighty Ohio. We can't wait to get there every year and we never want to leave when our time is done. We find that coming to stay in these wonderful cabins that Bud has built helps us to re-bond, laugh, heal, destress,relax, re-energize our hearts, minds bodies and souls, walk in nature and beauty. We call it Our Healing Get-A-Way. We can highly recommend: The Heron's Nest 2004-2005-2006 Le Chalet 2007 The Bonnie Pearl 2008 The Lodge at Buzzard's Roost 2009 Castle Colucci 2011 We look forward to 2012 we are already planning!!! Thank You Bud, Sally & Michelle for making our visits feel like a Home Coming!

Response from the owner Your Fantastic Review brought tears to our eyes. We LOVE hosting your Girls Weekend, and we have the Sincere Pleasure of having you all as our Friends & Family! Your outlook on life, Love of Family & Friends is a lesson the WORLD could take from you all. Your yearly visits make us Younger & Happier, AND BETTER PEOPLE FOR HAVING MET YOU! We really cannot express the Joy you have brought to our lives, please know from the bottom of our hearts that you hold a dear Karma here, & the strength we all receive from it grows & Grows. Love, Kisses & Hugs, Bud & Michelle.

“A wonderful family experience”

Reviewed 1 Sep 2011

Been wanting to have a "family" vacation for some time and thought after picking up a brochure for Colucci river cabins that we would give it a try. Couldn't have turned out better. The Kids,the Grandkids,Paul and I were all thrilled with the Heron's Nest with its remarkable view of the Ohio river and the Colucci hospitality. The grandkids wanted to stay there 'forever"! So did Grandpa and Grandma! We are planning on making this an annual family trip at the Heron's Nest!!

“Colucci Cabins and The Smiths”

Reviewed 31 Jul 2011

We stayed at Heron's Nest in april 2010. It was our second stay at Colucci Cabins, after first visiting in april 2009. I don't think that you could ask for more in a vacation home than what Bud has sitting down there on the Ohio River. The scenery and views are spectacular... the barges that travel the river are very interesting and not a loud offense by any means... waking up in the morning to the Kentucky cows, mooing over there across the river, is totally cool! Bud is friendly and helpful as are the others who work there. The wildlife surrounding the cabins locale is fascinating. I saw my first ever Bald Eagle on our first trip to Colucci's! The Heron's Nest offers plenty of room for everyone to kick back and relax - and what a treat to have a hot tub just out the door dowstairs! Everything that you would have at home is there - kitchen wares, pillows, washer & dryer (and no, it isn't coin operated)... you can grill outside on the expansive deck, or sit and soak up the sun, or rock yourself into a heck of an afternoon nap! and there's a fire pit for evening bonfires that makes for great memories. Heron's Nest is a mid-size cabin at Colucci's, and I think we had 15 folks including the little ons very comfortably accomodated - and we are planning to rent it again in the fall for our third trip down to the river. I recommend Colucci Cabin's to folks all the time and just hope that there's going to be a date open for me and my gang at leaat one weekend a year. Love the cabins- love the folks, even love the long drive down from Michigan. I highly recommend Heron's Nest or any of the cabins at Colucci's. Sincerely, Tehry Smith
