Welcome to Martin Houses Vacation Rentals, with short-term rental homes just outside of beautiful Berea, Kentucky!  If you are looking for a fun house or rental cabin, with beautiful views, close to hiking and outdoor activities, and within a short drive to lots of central Kentucky destinations, this is it!

We are the daughters and son-in-law of Richard Martin, a green designer/builder in the Berea area for more than 30 years, who had a reputation for building high-quality energy efficient homes.

We are fortunate to own two of Richard's houses, the Big Hill House - our family home and the first house that he ever designed and built - and the Little House.

Both homes sit on top of hills, a few miles apart from each other, in the beautiful Red Lick Valley. They also feature passive-solar design with windows spanning the entire south side of the home with loads of natural light and offer very open, unique, rustic spaces, with soaring ceilings, lofts that overlook living areas, wood stoves, and cool nooks, crannies, or other unique features, with views of the surrounding pasture land and mountains beyond.
