Cabin was perfect for us. Rick was so attentive to all our needs. Our grandchildren had a wonderful time boating, fishing and swimming.

Peaceful, extra clean with everything you need to spend a vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week away from our normal busy life at Ricks cabin. I used the covered boat dock that comes with the cabin and left my boat in the water all week. No loading and launching everyday. There is a marina in sight of the boat dock to fuel , with reasonably priced gas. Fishing was tuff at times but, that’s fishing. Cabin was better than we expected and super clean. My wife and daughter swam and sun bathed most of the time on the dock. They both said it was one of the better trips we have taken and we have been to several lakes and beaches. Rick is a great host and will help you anyway he can. When I decide to take another trip to this part of KY lake , I hope this cabin is available or possibly change my week for a time that it is. No complaints from us. Thanks.

Awesome place to stay!!!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we were looking for. It sits in a quiet cove with Big Bear boat ramp very close by. The covered boat dock came in handy since it rained one morning. The fishing was really good, we could see the house from where we were catching several catfish. And I have to mention all of the resident deer that kept us entertained while sitting on the deck. We will definitely be back. Thanks for the hospitality Rick!

Great spot and lovely hosts

  • 4 of 5

Very quiet and comfortable. Hosts are very nice and accommodating. Cottage is in a neighborhood so it's not completely private, but we didn't see anyone else for two whole days. Lots of room to spread out.
