Lake Cumberland's Best Kept Secret
average rating of 3.5 based on 4 reviews

First time on this side of the lake. Would definitely come back. Has many advantages.

  • 4 of 5

We were a little concerned about staying on the south fork of the river vs the main lake. We realize now that it has the advantage of putting in on the river or towing to main lake which we did twice. The access was quick and easy to the river right next door with a lot less traffic and less debris which made for really good water sports. The high banks also cut down on the wind. We were able to boat from the Lake C Resort ramp to Burnside 3 or 4 times and enjoy the lake and the river without having to tow to the main lake. The house was very nice with everything you need and plenty of space. Give the hot tub a day to warm up if you plan on using it. Our 4 teenage kids had a great time. The country store down the road sells gas but don't plan on them having much more. Not even milk or bread. They do have good pizza. Overall, we would definitely stay here again. You can be in Somerset in 30 minutes and they have a wide variety of stores and eateries. Sonny's barbeque was fantastic.

Not as advertised

  • 1 of 5

The check in procedure was rediculous. Our confirmation email gave two phone numbers to contact the “check in coordinator”. One line rang without an answer or voice mail and the other went to a voice mail box that was full. I called the “owner” of the property only to leave her two voice mails with no return calls back, incredibly unprofessional. I would recommend going through the rental office and picking a property through them. The rental office ultimately was the one that was able to reach the “check in coordinator” despite our email saying DO NOT GO TO THE RENTAL OFFICE. We rented this property so our teenagers could have fun playing pool and use the hot tub. The pool sticks were all broken (we made a trip to the store to buy two of our own) and the hot tub never got to a desired temperature. The fireplace didn’t work and the heat pump froze up on us. Not an ideal situation when the temperature outside was 10 deegrees! Unfortunately, I thought this property was going to make for a perfect New Years weekend getaway. The thing we were left wanting to get away from, was this property. Highly disappointed in the lack of initial communication and the upkeep of the “amenities” that were advertised with the property. (Hot tub, pool table and fireplace). Highly disappointed and embarrassed for choosing this rental property to share with our friends!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for your review. As discussed when you requested early check-in, it is very difficult for us to accommodate your request during winter months with potential changes in the weather that can impede our staff in this remote area. Your calls to the owner during your early arrival did not come through since cell phone service can be especially difficult during poor weather. Concerning the pool sticks, fireplace & hot tub, we have changed our on-site coordinate to make sure the issues you raised are addressed. Thanks. Shelly, A Better Rental

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this rental. We were there for a family reunion, and the cabin was clean and well kept. The beds were comfortable. I talked to Marilyn about the fact that a window cover on one of the doors would be a nice addition. She said that that was in the works. The only complaint we had was that the jets of the hot tub were not very strong. The hot tub itself was very clean/sanitized. Debbie, the onsite person, said that they completely empty the tub, vacuum out any residue, sanitize, and refill the hot tub each time. That's a plus in my book. We will be booking this cabin for next year.

nice house

  • 4 of 5

The house was nice, very clean, comfortable furniture. Nice beds and linens. The down falls were the hot tub was too cold to use until the second day and it was clearly visible from the neighbor's front porch area. The house is right next to the pool which was nice. I had a difficult time getting info from the rental agent and then found out we were shorted a day for the price we paid and she didn't want to talk about it.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review, Sorry for the hot tub it takes several hours to warm after each cleaning. Extra day has been taken care of. Weekly rentals consist of 6 nights and check out is on the morning of the 7th day.The agent that checked you in has no knowledge of the prices or days. If I can help you with any questions or concerns please contact me. Hope to see you back. Marilyn
