About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7, High Speed Internet (WiFi)

This 2,300 square foot private lakefront cabin has three levels, year round lake view and access to a community boat launch. Located in the South Fork area (Garland Bend) of beautiful Lake Cumberland, you can see the lake year round from most rooms in the house. Its location is quiet and peaceful with lots of blooming trees, shrubs and plants.

This property is in Burnside, KY with fantastic water access from the rear of the cabin. What do you get when you rent from us? You get private use of the cabin, boat parking and access to the lake - complete with steps to get you down to the water. From the rear of our cabin, there is a short meandering trail down to the lake which is perfect for swimming in the cool clear water. Plenty of decking to sit outside the cabin and watch the boats go by. We're that close to the lake! You'll be challenged to find a more inclusive rental - located just outside Burnside, about 3.5 miles off highway 27.

Lakefront Cabin Has Family Vacationers In Mind: This cabin comes fully equipped with just about everything you need for a perfect vacation. All you need to bring are clothes (don't forget your swim suit), groceries (if you want to eat in), and yourself (of course). Our cabin has just about everything else. Your memorable experience will begin as you walk in the front door into our tastefully furnished and decorated vacation home.

Our family rented many Lake Cumberland cabins and we know what vacationers want - a place that is memorable; a place to want to come back to! We now have our own property and we'll share it with you - knowing that you want the same amenities as us! Sorry, no smoking or pets allowed - no exceptions.

2300 Sq. Ft. (3 Levels) - Ground and Upper Level: Ground level: Entry foyer, kitchen/dining area, family room, laundry room and 1/2 bathroom. Family room has two couches - one is a sleeper sofa. This level has all wooden natural hickory flooring, a cooking island for the chef and game table for a round of cards, backgammon or chess. A professional size billiards table is set up and the cue ball is ready for that ''break'' shot! For the movie watchers, we have a 42'' flat screen television and lots of DVDs.

Upper level: This level has two peaceful bedrooms, each with its own television.

Bedroom #1 has queen bed; Bedroom #2 has bunk beds - twin top & full bottom. These bedrooms share a full bathroom.

Lower Level: Master bedroom has king bed; large two person jacuzzi tub in bedroom overlooking the lake; master bathroom with shower. A television is in the armoire - to catch up on the news as you settle in for the night. Also attached to the master bedroom is an enclosed cedar sun room to sit and read, listen to music or gaze out at the lake.

Don't hesitate to call or email us. We'll be glad to answer any questions you may have.

About Jonathan Briggs

Our family fell in love with Lake Cumberland the very first time we visited Kentucky...

Why Jonathan Briggs chose Lake Cumberland

So, we purchased this cabin in Burnside, KY. It's located on the lake, complete with access steps to the water, community boat launch and boat parking. We love our cabin so much, we'll share it with you! Be our guest for a few days or a week. Take a look around this web page and call us to answer your questions.

What makes this cabin unique

What's amazing about our cabin? It's the access to the water off our back yard. We have private access to the lake - complete with steps to get you down to the water. From the rear of our cabin, there is a short meandering trail down to the lake which is perfect for swimming in the cool clear water. You'll be challenged to find a comparable listing for rent.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thanks Jonathan,

The family and I had a wonderful time. We loved the lake and the house – and of course the Lake Cumberland area.

Awesome place for our family reunion!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 parts of our family from OH, PA and TX with a total of 12 in our group and we had an amazing time! We played pool, grilled out, made s'mores on the open fire around the fire pit, and so much more. Cabin was spacious and well stocked. We got to swim and fish off the dock. It was also awesome to dock up our boat on the large dock and come and go as we pleased with the boat. We can't wait to go back.

Owner's Response: Hi Missy - glad to hear you had a great time. I hope you come back next summer! As a heads up we are staying here after your stay and we did some dock enhancements to alleviate the gangplank steepness you had to deal with during your stay. Much easier to get from the stairs to/from the stairs or dock now.

Beautiful spacious home with water access

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful home. Everything you needed to start your stay was there, town was not far in distance, but takes a little longer with the hills and jogs but scenery is beautiful. One thing we loved is the private dock for swimming and for our boats. The channel was a little choppier then I was thinking (it was 4th of July weekend) the week was very calm and not a boat in sight. What I'm getting at is being plenty of bouies or padding to protect your boat. We had a great stay and plan on making it a yearly trip, Jon was very nice and responded to all my questions. Great homeowner

Lake Cumberland Family vacation

  • 4 of 5

This was our first trip to this cabin. We picked this location so that we could have a private dock so that we could bring our boat. We brought a family of 6. We had plenty of room and the cabin is well stocked with things to do if you do not wish to be on the lake all the time. Beds were very comfortable, lot of room to move around in the cabin, and having cable TV for late night entertainment is a real plus. The owner was very helpful is responding to our request for locating the WI-FI code which probably saved us a lot of data and money. On a separate note, the 800 number staff were terrible and rude. Thank goodness we could reach the owner. Because of him, we are planning on returning next year. If we could make a suggestion for future guests, please remember that their is limited parking. 2 cars easily fit. If 3rd or 4th car make the trip, you will need to park in side yard. The only negatives we experienced on this trip - we were forced to deal with prior tenants trash for the entire trip because all trash cans were filled up. Also, my wife would suggest bringing some paper towels because we were left with only a half a roll. On a boat note, if you are bringing a boat, I suggest launching from Burnside Marina as it is about 5-10 minutes away from the cabin.

Owner's Response: Hey Rod - I'm glad to hear you had a great time and we look foreward to having you back next year! Thank you for the feedback to me on things to address and for providing future guests with some tips for their stay. I apologize that you only had half a roll of paper towels. We stick 6 months of supplies at the house in a locked closet, so we have plenty of supplies but either the cleaning lady forgot to put some out during the changeover rush or for some reason was throttling the supplies too much. I have addressed with the cleaning folks to make sure that doesn't happen again. On the trash I didn't realize it was a problem and didn't realize how much trash gets generated over the week. We used to have a building out front for holding trash/trash cans, but it was destroyed in a traffic accident not too long ago so when I bought the 2 big totes I thought we were good. I had my cleaning lady buy another trash can so we will have 3 96 gallon totes. Trash only comes weekly on Thursdays. So hopefully the extra can will solve things. If there is anything else, feel free to send me an offline message and we'll get those resolved.

Very relaxing!

  • 4 of 5

Great location and easy to access property but also gives you a a great place to feel that you have escaped! Very clean house with plenty of amenities to make you feel like you didn't forget anything at home. We loved the access to the lake and large dock- petfect for floating and swimming off. It was a main Channel though so not ideal for going far from the dock and might have an issue with kids, a boat passed about every 15 min. We stayed here with 3 other couples and it gave us enough space not to feel crowded. The owner was able to let us check in early and was able to answer any questions I had upon arrival.Overall I really enjoyed staying here but felt that price per night with all of the fees was a little outrageous. but it is hard to find a house in this area with private dock access so I guess that's what we paid for.

Owner's Response: I'm glad to hear you had a great stay and got to enjoy the dock! We gladly share our cabin with those wanting to live the lake life and unfortunately there are a lot of costs with making a great vacation and maintaining the property and dock. We do charge and have fees that are both in and out of our control like (homeaway fees, County/State Taxes). All fees are fully disclosed to guests prior to booking and there are no hidden fees or charges that would come after you book. We are one of the few places if not the only place in the area that provides a private dock. We hear and feel that it makes it all worth the little extra that may come with that amenity for the fun and convenience it provides for your stay. We hope you stay and that others come stay with us for years to come have fun and make lasting memories with families and friends.
