About The Owner

A strong believer in the free enterprise system, K. Wayne Foster currently owns or is a partner in seven companies. Specifically, he has been involved in the information processing industry for nearly 35 years. Wayne's record is one of excellence and dedication to customer satisfaction - elements he believes are the foundation of any successful business. Wayne began his career in the computer industry while serving in the United States Air Force in 1966. Upon his discharge he worked in the data processing department of Western Kentucky Gas Co. in Owensboro, KY. He also taught computer processing at the Owensboro College of Business. Wayne later worked for Data Services, Inc. and Systems Resources, also located in Owensboro. A management position with Amca Resources, Inc. moved Wayne and his family to Madisonville, KY, where they lived for six years. When Amca relocated to Louisville, KY, Wayne felt the time was right to strike out on his own. With the idea of writing some canned programs for the mining companies, Wayne began The Systems Specialist (TSS). What started as a dream in 1977 has become a multi-million dollar company. The Systems Specialist was named IBM Business Partner of the Year in 1994. TSS has also achieved the status of an 'IBM Premier Business Partner' and is consistently ranked among the top firms in the country in customer satisfaction. Wayne is 56 years old and he and his wife, Cathy, have six children and 9 grandchildren. They enjoy traveling, hiking, water skiing and spending time with their family. Wayne and Cathy are active in their church as well as various civic organizations. Wayne attributes his achievements to his strong Christian values and his belief that doing what's right for the customer will ultimately make you successful. He embraces change as an opportunity to excel and believes the information processing industry will play an ever-increasing role in our everyday lives, as well as the business world.

Great property for the price, view and dock are worth it. House needs some updating.

  • 3 of 5

Amazing view, Great covered double boat dock, worth it just for the view and great fishing. Beds were adequate for a group of 3-4 people tops.

Outside of house is very well maintained. We enjoyed our trip.

Garbage outside was horrendous and full, smelled as though it hadn't been picked up in weeks and we had to move the cans away from the house to control the stench. Outside of house is beautifully landscaped but needs some lighting, no lighting down the 70 plus steps to the dock, and very little lighting outside the house that is rocky and easy to lose your footing on. Beds were comfy. Restroom adequate, but the tub drain seemed clogged and you stood in inches of water to shower for just a few minutes. Town was close enough to make a quick trip for bait and supplies. Air conditioning worked great once it was turned on, looks like a nice new unit and worked well on the hot days. Inside of house is dated but comfy, wallpaper is falling off in kitchen and bathroom though. Overall it was worth the visit, but not a perfect trip with some issues that could be avoided.

This place is perfect

  • 5 of 5

The deck, the size of the actual property, the beautiful view of the lake, the private dock, the bunk beds, the comfort and the cleanliness, and the proximity to all the best stuff around lake Barkley, all make this place the perfect getaway for us.

We will undoubtedly return.

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

What a great lake house. The house had everything we needed and perfect for a weekend fishing trip. As others have noted, the stairs down to the dock are an adventure but not a deterrent. I would gladly stay here again.

Quaint little A-Frame

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for two days and were very pleased with the house. I did leave some shampoo and conditioner since we noticed that there was no soap until after we went to shower. I do realize it is normally the responsibility of tenants to bring their own things I guess I was thinking that did not include soap. Sorry I did not have soap to leave. Our bed was so soft and comfortable therefore, sleeping was no issue other than when we turned up the heat a bit too high! The back area of this home is wonderful! It is so nice to take the walk down the stairs to the floating dock. Such serenity! Also nice to be greeted by the neighbors dog as we departed- not sure what kind of dog but beautiful and so friendly!

One thing i was not too fond of was the inability to speak directly with the property owner. We called for our house code and had to talk to a service which did not have our information as staying at the house until 2 other transfers. We did get things worked out after a few minor issues. However, I had to call back a second time and still was told they did not have our information thus why our preference would be to speak with the owner or just text.

Other than that main issue, a nice time in a simple little home with beautiful views.
