What info or stories does anyone have about the old hotel located up on the moutain? It's in ruins now, but it looks like it may have been a nice place at one time.

It was a very nice place in the 70,s and then it , I believe was destroyed in a fire and reopened as the Cliff Hanger in the mid 80,s . A social club so to speak.

It was a honky tonk for about 5 yrs. There was a shooting up there and I think it closed down.

You are correct about that, there was a shooting and that was the end of the Cliff Hanger.

I remember back when it was a hotel and restaurant, I used to eat there with my parents on Sundays after church sometimes. They had good food.

I wish I could have seen it. It kinda reminds me of the La citadelle in Hazard.

I was once told by an old man from harlan county that there used to be a roadside bar under a cliff. Is this true? It would be interesting to hear about it if so.

My grandpa told me stories about it. It's on the old road right before you get into Cumberland. You can't miss it.

Yeah, that' right, that's where he said it was. I would love to find that cliff and do some metal detecting.

Rumor has it that my great grandfather was a patron but I have no proof of that. Would love to know if its existence is true:)

My grandfather owned the " cliff house". According to my mother, it was more than just a bar, it was a "house of ill repute" also. She was about 10 yrs old so that would have been about 65 years ago. She has a picture of it. Her father, the owner was a Shepherd.

If it's the place I think it is, it was owned by James T Shepherd.
