About Joe & Marilyn Thornton

We are retired, Joe worked several years as auto body repairman & maintenance man on farm, I retired after 22 years working for local cable company. We live in Murray but enjoy the lake area, look forward to meeting our guest, and helping provide them with a great vacation experience. We also have Vacation Rentals, The Cabin & The Man Cave that are available, both are located within walking distance to Beautiful Kentucky Lake.

Joe & Marilyn Thornton purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Joe & Marilyn Thornton chose New Concord

We owned The Cabin, which we rent, next to The Cottage, we were given the opportunity to buy this as Vacation Rental, we purchased it, furnished it & decorated it, we also have The Man Cave that sleeps 2, great for fishermen, hunters or just couple that wants to get away, which we had a great time changing it from a boat storage unit to The Man Cave, it is Vacation Rental also. This is great for family reunion, can rent all 3 properties, can be together but have privacy.

What makes this cottage unique

It is such a cozy area, you can watch the squirrels, birds, just enjoy the trees, or go for walk, such a relaxing area. When you are ready you can go to the Cypress Springs Restaurant, which is known for their Catfish dinners & Famous Broasted Chicken to eat or grill at the Cottage.The Marina has the best Boat Dock located on the Southern portion of Beautiful Kentucky Lake. You can go fishing or for boat ride. Murray is located only 15 miles away, it is the home of Murray State University, is the Friendliest Town in America, has lots of Restaurants, Movies, golf courses, tennis courts Play House in the Park & City Park which has swimming pool & great place for children to play.

Felt just like home, cottage was best rental!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at many rentals and this was far above the rest. Marilyn and Joe were just a delight to deal with. We were not arriving till late at night and they even left a light on for us. We had a couple of people over for dinner one night from a fishing tournament and everyone commented on how wonderful the place was and wished they were staying there. The price was above reasonable and we felt like we were at home. Every thing was so clean and couldn't ask for anything more. We can't wait to come fish Kentucky lake again to stay at the cottage!

Very homey, very clean and close to marina

  • 5 of 5

Marilyn and Joe were great hosts - communication before we got there was excellent. Marilyn even let us know the cabin could be ready a day early and/or we could get in early on DOA. She referred my husband to a fishing guide and he caught his biggest bass ever 9.5 lbs. Great place to stay near lots of water activity. The only downside was no wi-fi service. Thanks for a great stay.

awsome place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to stay in the cottage and we loved it. This time they had a golf cart for each of their three rentals. Marina is so close we chose to put boat in each day for 3.00 (paid to marina). Restaurant at marina has killer broasted chicken. Marilyn as always was pleasant and attentive. We had welcome roses in a vase from her rose bush. What’s even better is all the condiments, aluminum foil, coffee filters etc. we’re already there! We just love this place! There are 3 style rentals so make sure to see which one fits you best! Can’t wait to go back again!

Great place for R&R!

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd time to stay at The Cottage & it won't be our last. The Cottage is a great place to come "home" to after hours on the water. It's so clean & very well stocked. We loved having the mud room and the patio to enjoy our meals & the outdoors. Having the golf cart to get to the restaurant is sure convenient, too. Marilyn & Joe are wonderful to deal with.
