Change in Ownership/management

I want to let all of our past guests and future guests to be aware of a change in ownership of the cabin.

The new owners want to continue renting the cabin but you will need to visit their new webpage on the Homeaway site. Please use property number 4609138 to see their calendar with available dates. If you have already booked a stay here, nothing will change for you. The new owners want the transition to be seamless and I am sure they will only improve on the cabin going forward.

I want to sincerely thank all of the guests that have stayed with us over the past 4 years and the amazing reviews that were given.

It was a pleasure to have you stay with us.

The new owners welcome all of our past guests back and will continue the exceptional service everyone expects.

So as of August 1st 2017, you can no longer book a stay from this particular page since I have blocked off the calendar going forward but you can book this cabin on the new page. Again just use property ID# 4609138

Thank you!

This property is located with an adjoining 60 acres of land that you will have total access to during your stay. The back part of the 60 acres overlooks Lake Cumberland which is one of the largest lakes in the country. There is a service road that you can use to walk down to the lake. Within the gated area you may ride ATV's and bicycles or just take a nice walk. We frequently see deer and wild turkey on the property. The property is also located along the Sandhill Crane migration path. This past November we saw hundreds of them fly overhead and several even landed in the lake. There is a dairy farm across the street and we like to watch the dairy cows come in and out of the field during the day. Year-round you will see baby cows in the fields around the cabin.

We have added a very nice pontoon to our amenities and this boat is available for our guests to rent. Our property manager can even be hired to drive the boat for you if you just want a scenic cruise!

A geocache trail has also been set up on our property and will give the kids a fun challenge to find all 16 markers and solve the jumble at the end.

This home is a spacious 3 bedroom and 3 full bath home on a full finished basement. The basement houses a game area and a full high definition home theater. The basement has a queen sized bed, full bath and a laundry room with a full size washer and two dryers.

The upstairs master suite has a king size bed and a 32 inch LCD television. It has a full bathroom with a double vanity sink, separate shower and a Jacuzzi tub.

The main floor includes two bedrooms each with a queen size bed. One of these rooms also has a single bed in the room.

The main floor also has a nice size kitchen with all stainless Steele appliances including a dishwasher and microwave, utensils and cookware provided. The main floor has a beautiful fireplace and a large flat-screen television. Outside the main room are two porches. The front porch runs the length of the house and has a porch swing and wood bench.

Above the main room is a loft area that has an exercise area set up including a nice commercial stepper. It has weights and resistance bands as well.

If you want to use the property to ride ATV's this can also be arranged by renting an ATV for the day or weekend or you may bring your own. A separate rental agreement for the ATV’s must be signed prior to your arrival.

If you enjoy the quiet and the beauty of nature this is the perfect private get away.

Alligator II Marina is only about a half mile away by water but to drive there it takes about 15 minutes.

We have just added our own pontoon boat and it will be available to our guests to rent. The pontoon is kept in a slip at Alligator 2 marina.

About Owner / Property Manager

My name is Kelly and I am one of the developer/owners of this property. I have been visiting Lake Cumberland since I was a small boy and had always wanted a place near the lake. Someday I hope I can make this property my full time residence.

I bought this land with the intent to develop it into a sub division but when the corps of Engineers lowered the water levels I decided to wait. Therefore you are getting a rare opportunity to have exclusive use of an entire sub division as your adult playground.

I have to say after spending time there with family and friends I am having second thoughts about ever developing it because we have so much fun just enjoying the property in its natural state.

Owner / Property Manager purchased this cabin in 2006

Why Owner / Property Manager chose Russell Springs

This is a very unique property with very unique circumstances. The logs used to build the home are native to the site. This is truly a custom home. It is located on a quiet road and we have spent weekends there and only seen 1 or 2 cars pass the house. It is situated between two large developments that are also waiting until the lake returns to normal before they are fully developed. The only buildings you see from the Cabin are the Dairy Barn and Silo more than half a mile away. This property makes a great place to visit if you want some peace and quiet and really get a connection to nature or it can be a place to be very active. If you are a sportsman and like to fish this property makes a perfect place to stay and get to the marinas for a day on the lake fishing with your own boat or charter a guide service. Several striper guides use Alligator 2 marina as there home marina. We have just added a pontoon rental for our guests that you can use to fish from or pull a tube or skier. If you don't have a lot of experience driving a boat our property manager will be happy to drive the boat for you and let you relax.

A geocache trail was added in the spring with 16 GPS points to find. Each location has a letter you find and if you find all 16 and solve the jumble then you win a prize.

What makes this cabin unique

If you are like us and feeling rushed and frantic most of the time, this log home property will provide for instant relaxation. Instead of traffic noise and light pollution you will look into clear star filled skies with the sounds of birds, frogs, peaceful content dairy cows and rustle of leaves blowing in the wind. You can enjoy long peaceful walks or just sit on the comfy porch swing letting yours cares slip away. This is the perfect property for everyone. There is plenty to do for both adults and children or it is perfect for a quiet romantic getaway.

Great place to have fun!

  • 5 of 5

Between boating and ATV'ing we had a great time! Cabin has lots of room and everything you could need in the kitchen. It was nice to come out and jump on an ATV whenever we wanted, at anytime of day. While riding we saw a wild turkey, deer's, two baby fawns, and lot of toads at night. It was very relaxing / peaceful to sit out on the front deck in the morning drinking coffee or in the evening with a cold drink! No easy access to the lake, closest dock is Alligator I (20 - 30 minutes away), easy to launch a boat at and swim from the shore line.

Lovely place

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this house. We enjoyed walks on the grounds surrounding the house, playing cards and watching the wildlife. A little hard to get used to the different time zones - central time to eastern time - depending on which side of the road you were on 🤔

Great place to make memories with family!

  • 5 of 5

I will be coming back to this place. We had a great time riding the trails. Very beautiful property with some awesome scenery. We spent everyday riding the trails then spent the evenings around the fire pit. Very relaxing atmosphere. Maybe next time we will have to go check out the lake. Beautiful cabin with plenty of room. My family and I really needed a vacation and we all had a great time. They already told me to skip Disney World they want to come back here on our next vacation. Very pleased and can't wait to visit this place again.
