We try to stay up on emails and seldom update the calendar.

The lake house is nestled deep in the woods on a hillside overlooking a secluded bay and our large boat dock on Kentucky Lake. The house has two bedrooms, a living room, full kitchen, full bath, washer and dryer, a queen size bed and three large sturdy bunk beds with blankets, sheets and pillows, television with cable, wifi, couches, tables, kitchen cookware, cooking and eating utensils, plates, bowls, cups, croc pot, mixers, and of coarse the coffee maker - you only need your clothes, your food, and whatever shampoo you prefer.

There is a private screened in porch with music to listen to, fans to keep the heat down and bugs away, lights and a table with chairs for time with the family. A large back porch overlooking the lake and dock with table and chairs, a fire pit outside to relax around, and all the peace you desire.

A private short paved road leads down to our large, private, and covered dock. There is electricity and fresh water on the dock. You can tie your boat to the dock, or grab a few canoes from the rack and explore the bay. Relax with your favorite frosty beverage at one of the tables. There is music and lights on the dock, plug in your Bluetooth and enjoy your favorite tunes while watching the day go by. The dock is very peaceful.

Some people are not used to nature or the natural activity that occurs in the woods, it is amazing. Raccoons, squirrels, many deer, fox, hawks, bald eagles, hummingbirds as well as many other beautiful and amazing birds live all around out here. If you are on the dock you may see turtles, otters, multiple fish, even some beavers. You may see a bald eagle snatch a fish right out of the water in front of you.....it is spectacular to see. Squirrels definitely enjoy eating acorns on the porch. You may see a hawk right outside on the porch railing or in the tree munching out on the food he just caught. Sometimes we see a bald eagle bring its dinner to the tree just outside the lake house. Deer graze across the yard and through the bay area every night. Fox run across the road every night as well. If you are not used to seeing so many amazing animals, please do not be alarmed, these amazing creatures do not eat people.

The sunset on the water is amazing. The fresh smell of nature is purifying. There are no city lights around so the stars are a spectacular sight on a clear night. Full moons, quarter moons, even little sliver moons are unexplainably beautiful out here. The sunrise from the porch is breathtaking. This is truly an amazing piece of nature to enjoy.

There are approximately 140 acres on this property with marked hiking trails, horse trails, atv trails, and jeep trails all over. There are large pastures with goats and horses. Feel free to explore and enjoy yourself.

Land Between the Lakes State Park is 15 minutes away, it has 170,000 acres with trails leading to major beautiful historical and fun sites to visit.

Turkey Bay's 2000 acre off road park is also about 15 to 20 minutes from the lake house.

If your goal is to relax and have fun......you just found the place.

Fishing trip

  • 2 of 5

The cabin was nice, but it would have been helpful to know to bring a 4wheel drive vehicle, we brought our boat and almost couldn't get out on the road in dry conditions. The wet conditions made it almost impossible. They say lake view but you only get to see a small part of the lake and even less when the water is low. They cater more to people wanting to do off roading with the ATVs. Would have been nice to know its not the place for a fishing getaway even though it is "lakeside"

Owner's Response: Wow... The very first picture shows a paved driveway leading to a huge private dock to accommodate the best of fishermen and place his awesome boat under a covered slip with fresh water and electric at his/her disposal. The picture is the exact view you get and the exact 4 slip 2 covered dock with tables and exceptional views you tie your cool boat to. I am sorry you were not satisfied with a private vacation cove with bald eagles flying around. Maybe you just didn't catch anything that day. Don't give up, caste again. No one has ever said that about the manicured beautiful driveway leading to the private getaway lake house overlooking a private road leading to the private dock you get to use as your own. It is difficult to please everyone. We truly want everyone to enjoy themselves. If you do have a cool side by side and wanted to explore the property with your family, we certainly encourage that as well. Perhaps the next place you stay will be more beneficial to your specific needs....

Very Secluded and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I spent the biggest part of last week here and enjoyed every minute of it!! We needed to get away from the hustle bustle of everyday life back in Missouri. The owners are very gracious. The location was convenient to everything we needed and far enough away to provide us with the quiet seclusion we were seeking. We definately would like to return sometime.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently spent a week here. Cannot recommend it enough. The house had everything you need - just bring food and clothes. From watching the deer playing in the yard every evening, to sipping coffee on the deck watching the day come alive on the lake, everything was perfect. Very secluded, but still a reasonable drive to restock necessities. It's also close to the beautiful land between the lakes and all it's attractions. The owners were kind and helpful and made us feel welcome. We had a wonderful, relaxing stay and still managed a nice amount of filets even though the heat in mid July makes for less than desirable fishing. We will definitely be back!!

Perfect getaway from it all!!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was for a week and we could not of asked for anything or found anywhere better. The owners were very nice and made sure we had everything we neede. They even called and checked on us during our travel the day up there. The cabin is very clean and has everything you need to enjoy a relaxing and restful time. The back porch deck is perfect to catch the morning sun and even breathtaking at night. The boat dock is very spacious with ample room to fish and great spots to jig and drown a minnow. The dogwood trees are by far my favorite and were in full bloom all over the property. We really didn't want to leave but we had to get back o our jobs and bait shop here in texas. If you are looking for a great place to be away or stay that is close to town but seems in its own element then you mus stay here. You will not be disappointed and we surely will be back as often as we can. Thank you for making our stay one we will remember forever and look forward to our next visit to your lovely cabin.

HAD A WONDERFUL TIME !!!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My oldest daughter and her new husband recently moved to Murray, KY to attend college, which was a big adjustment for my family, so we decided to go visit. My family and I stayed at this beautiful place for 4 nights and absolutely loved it. Kentucky lake is beautiful and peaceful. The owners are great,family oriented people who understand what it means to "Get away and relax". They make you feel very welcome and comfortable and are available if you need anything (within reason). If you are looking for a 5 star resort, then go stay at one !!! If you are looking for a place to relax, build fires,fish,hike,canoe, grill out,explore and spend time with friends and family without all of the hustle and bustle of everyday life, then you have found the right place. We will definitely be going back in the near future. Thank you for letting us stay...hope to see you soon !!!!!!!!!!!!!!
