Have questions? Please read the most common questions asked by our guests and responses by us in the text at the bottom of this description.

Whether you are returning to our lake house yet again or coming for the first time, we promise that this cabin will be a dream come true! It offers a romantic setting for just the 2 of you or a chance to spend some quality time together as a family.

When we were looking for a cabin on Lake Cumberland we had 3 requirements. 1) Great lake views during all 4 seasons. 2) A location that seemed secluded but was close to all that Somerset has to offer. 3) An environment that allowed us to disconnect from the hustle and bustle of daily life in order to focus on what is truly important- our marriage and our family of 5.

This cabin is a home run if you are looking for the same things as we were. Imagine waking up in the morning to the birds chirping in the woods surrounding the cabin, fixing a cup of coffee, and relaxing on the deck that provides one of the best views you will ever experience on Lake Cumberland. Imagine opening up the windows in the sunroom and feeling the breeze coming off the lake while you relax on the couch and read a great book or take an afternoon nap. Imagine heading to a nearby restaurant in Somerset as a family and ending the day with family game night. These are memories that you will never forget and they could be your reality!

Looking for some lake activities as a family? One of the things that makes our cabin unique is not only the great 4 seasons view, but also the fact that we're located in Somerset and only 1 mile from Lee's Ford Marina, where you can fish, boat, eat, swim, and just enjoy the simple lake lifestyle.

Simply put, this cabin offers memories that you will cherish for a lifetime and will talk about for years to come!

Common FAQ's

1) Does the property have direct lake access? Since the corps of engineers took over ownership of the shorelines of Lake Cumberland decades ago in order to ensure preservation of its natural beauty, very few properties on the lake have direct lake access. Our property is no exception. Our family typically goes to nearby Lee's Ford Marina (1.5 miles away) and rents a pontoon boat to enjoy the many coves that dot the shoreline of Lake Cumberland.

2) Are particular dates available? Since we don't accept personal checks and guests pay via credit card directly through the site, the calendar is always up to date. So, if the dates are open on the calendar, they're all yours!

3) What are the closest marinas? Lee's Ford Marina is just down the road (1.5 miles) and Burnside Marina is 9 miles away. Both marinas have a boat ramp, boat rentals, restaurants, and beautiful settings.

4) Is there air conditioning in the cabin? Yes, the cabin stays cozy and comfortable with central heat and air (new unit installed in 2014)

5) How many parking spots are available? There are 2 official parking spots, and one is large enough for a boat to be parked if needed. There is also a long driveway that could be used for additional parking if needed.

6) Are your rates negotiable? Unfortunately, no. You can't put a price on great memories!

About Megan Dungan

We are a family of 5 who use our cabin to detach from the busyness of life. Once we enter through the doors, it seems like all the cares of life fall away. We have created some of the most special family memories within the walls of our cozy cabin.

Megan Dungan purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Megan Dungan chose Somerset

We looked at countless cabins on Lake Cumberland before buying this one. It offered 2 main things that stood out among all the rest.

1) Amazing lake views- Not just great lake views during the fall and winter, but just as good of views during the seasons we would use it most, Spring and Summer.

2) Location- Some of the other cabins were great, but they were in the middle of nowhere and did not offer a close place to get something to eat or watch a movie as a family. This cabin feels like it's in the middle of nowhere but in actuality is close to anything you could want.

What makes this cabin unique

Year round lake views, serene environment, and location, location, location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you very much for letting us enjoy your wonderful home here at Cumberland. It's a perfect place for us to catch up with our friends whom we have not seen for over 10 years. We enjoyed the scenery and lazy days on the lake.

It is very nice and quiet, cozy and affordable

  • 4 of 5

This vacation was very nice, quiet, cozy and peaceful. I wished there was more to do at the cottage. No access to the water from the cottage so no place to swim, fish or get to the water. It is not trailer friendly. We took motorcycles to ride around while on vacation in Kentucky and had to park our trailer on a pretty good incline. The photos do not show the steep driveway that is there.

Gorgeous view! The perfect lake house!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this wonderful home for four nights on our first visit to Lake Cumberland. The location was so convenient to Lee’s Ford Marina where we docked our boat for the weekend. The house felt like we were in the middle of nowhere, yet close to everything. The house was very clean and welcoming. We grilled and ate on the deck overlooking the lake twice. The home is simply perfect and we plan to return this year!

Very nice place!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for a three day weekend. When you first arrive, you can see the lake house along with its beautiful view of the lake and forest. When walking inside you have excellent natural light with the big windows in the open sun room. The house was very clean and had a homey feeling. We really enjoyed the seclusion and the deck with its great view. We would definitely stay here again. Communication with the hosts was easy as they were very friendly and quick to respond.

Fantastic views from a wooded perch almost 200 feet above Lake Cumberland! The Lakehouse has a fun, "shabby-chic" decor, a nicely equipped kitchen and very comfortable living room furniture. The sun room and deck are perfect for relaxing, enjoying a meal and watching the boats go by. FYI - the master bedroom is small and tight, and the queen bed is rather firm and high off the floor (however, a step-stool is thoughtfully provided). Highly recommended!

Perfect lake-side getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed for four nights in March and it was perfect. The cabin is bigger than the photos make it look, yet every bit as cozy as we’d hoped. It’s tucked away, not too far from stores/etc., but very quiet. We never heard a peep while we here here. Everything is clean and all of the creature comforts of home are here (including Netflix). Close to all the recreational activities Somerset has to offer, and also close to Cumberland Falls and other beautiful local attractions.

We’ll definitely stay here again the next time we need to recharge our batteries.

One of the unique qualities of our cabin is its location. You will feel like you are in the middle of nowhere when in fact you have access to anything you or your family would desire to do. We're just down the street from Lee's Ford Marina and Restaurant and very close to shopping, movie theaters, and other restaurants.
