Let me suggest looking up Shelby Lee Adams, he lives in eastern Kentucky.
I have a very nice, big cabin near Frenchburg and would be willing to host a bunch of photographers there. But I live near DC so I don't get over to the cabin very often -it'd have to be planned well in advance. I don't have a darkroom in the cabin but, now that I think of it, it wouldn't be hard to set up some basics.
Like Scott (above) I am always happy to round up some of the DC folks and take them out west.
