Why Beth Walker chose Eddyville

The view had us sold!!! It is one of the best you will ever see on the Lake. I guess that is why Matthew Lyon who founded Eddyville and Lyon County had once owned this lot ! It is truly a beauty! Our house has all the modern ammenities but yet so much history. Come stay and see for yourself. We would loved to have you!

What makes this house unique

This property is close to Grocery Store, Liquor Store, Gas Stations, Restaurants, Marinas plus Golf course and Waterpark. You won't have to go far if you forgot something or if you are wanting to get to some great recreation in!!! Our location is not only convenient it has good paved roads that makes it easy to get you back to the highway.

Wonderful week at Lake Barkley!

  • 5 of 5

This was the nicest rental property we have enjoyed! Highlights for me: the big porch and it's pretty view, good and reliable air conditioning (it was 90-100 degrees that week), the Jacuzzi tub, the new gas grill, the big dining room table where we could all comfortably fit, and just plenty of room to spread around and move about! (Besides my husband and I, there were 4 young adult children). We enjoyed being on the water in a rented pontoon boat 3 days (Hu-B's), and relaxing around the lake the rest of the time. During the evenings, we enjoyed the nice fire pit, sunsets, the water lapping at the shore, and watching movies on TV. Having internet was nice, too; it allowed us to stay connected when needed, but it was very nice to take a break, slow down, and enjoy family! Thanks for providing this opportunity!

Beautiful Views

  • 5 of 5

This house was absolutely beautiful! The views from the wrap around deck make this house a perfect lake vacation. Our vacation was so peaceful! We loved enjoying the true nature that surrounded us. We saw lots of wildlife and loved the sounds that came with the nature and water. The sun sets over the water truly looked like a picture. It was a perfect view. The house was clean and had such charm and character that you don't see in many houses today. The decor was perfect lake decor and added to the ambiance of our lake vacation. The backyard was huge and we had lots of room to run around the yard. The lake is just steps from the front porch, which made it convenient for us to go down and fish or jump in the water. We loved how it was rocky and not sand. We didn't have to worry about the mess of the sand. Just make sure you wear shoes. I would highly recommend this place to anyone.

Very nice view over the water

  • 3 of 5

This home is situated on the lake with a beautiful view of the water. The home itself is older and needs some updating. The internet is non-existent, but at a lake home, the internet is not why you choose a home such as this. The home was not pre-cleaned properly as there was garbage left in the trash compactor which caused the house to smell. Once that was taken care of, the home was relaxing and served our purpose.

Owner's Response: Wow Jeff! I thought per our conversation on the phone you would have been KIND enough to understand how that was missed. Yes, people are human and do make mistakes. Our wonderful cleaning lady felt so terribly bad she forgot to take out the trash. This has never happened in the 8 years she worked for us. We are sorry this happened and it left a temporary smell till you took it out. As far as updates our home looks just like the pictures you saw on line. The internet was working fine for the group before you. My daughter was there this week it works. So not sure. You didn’t mention it on the phone call.

Enjoyed our stay very much.

  • 5 of 5

The house and property were quite nice. There were two couples and each had a very nice bedroom with bathroom. It was within easy driving distance of the lakes/recreation and good restaurants. We say more deer that ever before. Great for outdoor enthusiasts.
