About The Owner

This is a home where two families vacation and include their grown families and grandchildren. Everybody has some entertainment they enjoy from the nearby golf to quick access to the lake for swimming, waterskiing, or fishing. Everything to accommodate family cooking/grilling. It is easy to get there (even trailering a boat) as the area interstates connect to a recently built 4 lane corridor at Hopkinsville that goes all the way to Cadiz.

The Owner purchased this house in 1995

Summer fun on the lake

  • 5 of 5

I loved it! The house was great. Large front room with plenty of seating space for extended family. We had up to 7 on one day. Huge front window to look out onto gorgeous Kentucy in the summer; rich green trees, huge blue sky's and that beautiful lake. Bed are comfy, house has Everything you could need. Boat access was very convenient, both launching and the dock at the house made it super easy to enjoy the lake 2 or 3 times a day. Great spot and I hope my family will visit again!

Great Lake Home For Family Vacation

  • 4 of 5

My family and I stayed for a bass tournament on Lake Barkley. We were able to accomodate everyone comfortably. The home is close to Barkley State Park and has a fishing dock the family loved. Great home for a family vacation to enjoy the lake.

There is a full time renter underneath the home which makes your stay a little awkward at times.

Owner's Response: There was an unfortunate misunderstanding about parking, although the parking is very generous. Never before had multiple boats brought to the main parking pad at the house for overnight parking....regret the inconvenience.

Trip July 2017

  • 4 of 5

The value of the rental is superb and the house is beautiful and tastefully decorated. The space . The boat dock is an added bonus to rent a pontoon boat from Prizer Point at Lake Barkley State Park. Ample parking and beautiful view from the large deck. Enough beds for 10 people and 3 nice bathrooms with large kitchen and enough utinsels, pots, pans, plates and glasses for a large crowd. I would recommend this place if you want a peaceful setting with a lake view.
