It's understood that the Arc Encounter in Williamstown, Kentucky is “full-sized.” And if you should make it a destination, there’re several similarly full-sized hotels nearby—Hampton Inn and the like.
But for this smallest of getaways—Williamstown is just over an hour south—let’s think smaller. In fact, let’s think tiny because that’s exactly how the folks behind Galloping Goose Cottages describe them.
For some context, Galloping Goose Cottages sit on a serene patch of land between Williamstown and its northern counterpart, Dry Ridge. There are 10 of them, and they dot gravel paths extending from the road.
At 190 square feet, they aren’t exactly tiny. In fact, they’re just a bit smaller than your average hotel room. They’re also new, clean, trendy, and they offer a variety of amenities:
- Heat and air conditioning
- Cozy queen bed with luxe linens
- Flat screen ROKU-equipped TVs
- Mini refrigerator
- Coffee maker
- Keyless entry
As to how the interior feels, it’s more spacious than you’d think. The ceilings are high, the layouts are economical, and there’s even room for charming country decor that's more Nashville-chic than IKEA.
Speaking of charming, take a gander (heh) at some of the cottage names: Monkey Motion, Caboose, Flying Duck, Whistle Stop, Snoozer, Shanty… and the list goes on. It’s all part of the quaint and rustic allure of these quarters, whether tiny or not.
Because—let’s be honest—if you’re going to the Arc Encounter or thereabouts, are you really going to want to stay in a Hampton Inn?
