Haskiells to sell Kozy Haven



2021-06-03 - Columbia, KY - Photo courtesy Chris Wilson.
Kozy Haven Log Cabin Rentals was started in 2013 shortly after John and Peggy Haskiell purchased the property from the late Hazel Parson's estate. The Haskiells originally built four "Smokey Mountain"-style log cabins, and demand has been so high that they've added more cabins, a 2-bedroom log home, a playground, and a picnic area. They have lodged guests from all 50 states and 48 countries, hosting countless family reunions and even weddings.

Peggy Haskiell has been in charge of the day-to-day operations, but she plans to retire in order to assist her elderly father, who is facing several health-related issues.

Haskiells selling Kozy Haven after eight years

Kozy Haven Log Cabin Rentals is located just off Exit 49 in Columbia, KY, near the south end of the Veterans Memorial Bypass. It is a unique property that offers log cabin rentals to tourists visiting Green River Lake and Lake Cumberland, plus many folks visiting Lindsey Wilson College.

Peggy Haskiell has been in charge of the day-to-day operations, but she plans to retire in order to assist her elderly father, who is facing several health-related issues.

The business was started in 2013 shortly after John and Peggy Haskiell purchased the property from the late Hazel Parson's estate. At that time, the property contained only Hazel's original two bedroom cottage, which is still on the property today, and a white storage barn. The Haskiells originally built four "Smokey Mountain"-style log cabins, and demand has been so high that they've added more cabins, a 2-bedroom log home, a playground, and a picnic area.

Letter: Researching Judd Family of early Green County

Colleen Taylor writes:
Good afternoon! I came across your site while researching the Judd & Greer families of early Green County. I was looking to see if anything about the families are included in "History Among Us: Green County in Photographs, Interviews, & Stories."

The Carrington Simpson story got me here as his daughter married John Greer Judd. I need to tie the Greer and Judd families together for a lineage society application. Thank you!
If any readers can offer assistance to Colleen, please use our Contact form and we'll pass it on to her email address.
