About The Owner

We have always enjoyed the lake area....swimming, fishing, hiking, boating.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Gilbertsville

We live just minutes away from the area and have always dreamed of owning a home on the lake. This area is a great place to relax, recharge and spend a peaceful evening watching the sunset. But you are just minutes away from entertainment, great restaurants and a drive-in movie theater with the best hamburgers around!

Private Boat Dock 'U' shape, 118' wide and 20' long on inside. Water at dock is usually deep enough for boats between mid April and last week of August. TVA has lake levels lowered remainder of the year. Google Kentucky lake levels for scheduled lake elevations. Due to damages to our 4 person cart recently and not being notified, we will now be renting it for $50.00 per visit. Sorry for having to do this.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Over the past 3 years we have stayed at 3 to 4 properties each year. This one is probably the nicest place we have stayed. Mark was waiting on me for check in. He walked me through the house and showed me everything. The house was as well stocked as I have seen and the check out list was short and painless. This 4 day stay was in a perfect place to entertain my son and daughter in-law from St. Louis and my youngest son and soon to be daughter in-law. They became engaged a month ago and with she being from Michigan, we introduced her to the South with fried deer, grilled squash and fried catfish that she caught (her first). Thank you Mark for allowing us to make some great memories at your property.

The home is even better than the pictures, and it was immaculate when we arrived.

  • 5 of 5

We are time share owners and had not done VRBO until this stay. I am not easy to please! This home was perfect for our group of 4 adults and 4 kids. There are 2 master bedrooms/baths, another full bedroom and full bathroom, and ample space on the landing upstairs for an air mattress, plus the pull out. The two boys camped out up there, the 2 girls shared the full bedroom and both adult couples had the masters. Plenty of room and privacy! The home is fully stocked with kitchen utensils, dishes and cookware, towels, bedding, extra blankets, even shampoo and toothpaste if you forget anything. The deck is huge with a nice view of the lake as shown. The boat slip was fine for our boat and gave immediate access to the lake. Use the golf cart! It makes hauling coolers and bags so much easier. Moors Resort and Marina is about .25 away, so you can also buzz down there for misc.items, souvenirs, and even hand-dipped ice cream. Ralph's is a pretty good restaurant there also. Location on the lake was great. The lake area was wide, so even with several boats, it's not too rough. Most days it was so calm, best skiing we've ever had. Location is close to the quarry for the rope swing and cliff jumping and the marina is always close for gas. Mark answers questions immediately and is very helpful. Renee was at the house when we arrived and she couldn't have been more welcoming or hospitable. They gave us complete privacy all week, but are only 25 minutes away if you need anything. We will be back!

Lovely home on the lake with friendly owners

  • 5 of 5

This was our sixth year here and we can’t say enough good things about this home or the owners. It has everything you need in the kitchen, there is plenty to do if it rains (puzzles, games and movies). It’s a short golf cart ride to Moore’s Resort where they rent boats and jet skis. There is a dock if you bring your own boat. New this year is a great swing which is so nice early in the morning. I love the awning on the deck and the view! As hot as it is in Kentucky, you will be happy to know the air conditioning works great and keeps it nice and cool! And they have a generator. This year it stormed and it was wonderful. We were able to have family movie night and stayed nice and cool! Usually we travel with more people and the second refrigerator is so handy! The washer and dryer make it so nice—no laundry to do when we come home. Again, we can’t say enough great things about our home away from home!

Great home on KY Lake

  • 5 of 5

This place is really nice. I've stayed in a number of places at KY Lake and this one is by far the nicest interior of any house I've been to at the lake. It is clean and new and spacious and the beds are very very comfortable. The owners are extremely responsive and as nice as can be. I would definitely recommend renting the golf cart if it is available for use going back and forth from the dock and to the Moors marine and/or Ralph's restaurant. Highly recommend this place.
