About Joe & Marilyn Thornton

Joe ran a Auto Body Shop for several years, then worked on farm equipment & machinery for several years, is retired and keep our rentals looking good on outside. Marilyn worked for several years for KY Farm Bureau & then local Cable company for 22 years, now retired and enjoys keeping the rentals looking good and looking for something new to put in them or hang on wall.

We have 2 daughters and 3 grandsons, you will see their pictures if you visit either of the rentals. We are proud of our family.

Joe & Marilyn Thornton purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Joe & Marilyn Thornton chose New Concord

We were looking for a camper to be able to stay at the lake, our Grandson saw the cabin for sale on TV, he came over and couldn't wait until we went out to see it, we loved it and knew it was for us at first sight. This was our lake house, we never thought of renting it until we purchased the Cottage next door, when we started renting The Cottage we had an overflow so we decided to rent The Cabin. We have never been sorry, we have met the nicest folks and it brings in extra income since we are retired.

What makes this cabin unique

Very quiet, peaceful and so relaxing.

The Cabin was just what the Dr. ordered!

  • 5 of 5

From the moment we pulled up in the driveway, we felt "at home". Marilyn and Joe were there to greet us and show us around. The Cabin has such a warm and cozy feeling. My husband and I both needed time to "de stress" and The Cabin did just that. The Cabin is a fully stocked rental. Anything you could want/need was there. We have decided to make this at least an annual rental if not more The golf cart was a nice touch and convenient to take down to the lake. We also received a "thank you" gift upon arrival, which was very special. You can certainly tell that Marilyn and Joe take care of their rentals and their rentees. We will be back. I would give 10 stars if I could!!!

Fishermen, if your looking for a place to stay on Kentucky Lake, THIS IS IT!! My Grandson and I stayed 3 nights during a Bass Tournament and could not have asked for a better place to stay. Marilyn was very helpful and made every effort to make our stay enjoyable. Forget the hotels and stay here. We will be back.

Just what we were looking

  • 4 of 5

We wanted to get away for a few days where it was nice, quiet and safe and this was the place to go. The cabin was very quiet and clean. It was close to a very nice lake and if you enjoy fishing this was it. The neighbors were very friendly too. Thanks so much for letting us stay at The Cabin.

Little Heaven in New Concord

  • 5 of 5

So many wonderful things at this cabin, I don’t know where to start. First time Dan, my husband, and I saw this ad online we could not believe how adorable the place looked with such reasonable pricing. We were taking our spring break and wanted some place close by but not too close with a price within our budget. Well...seems like our wish was granted...and more. Everything one would need in a mini-vacation is provided for in the cabin. All we had to do was bring ourselves and food; we were set. Very homey with country apples decor and photos of M & J’s family. The owners of the cabin, Marilyn and Joe, are the most hospitable and hard-working people we have met in this hospitality business. They are very considerate and pay attention to detail. My husband and I are very private people and Marilyn and Joe respected that. But they were at the cabin when we needed them. Thank you so much, Joe and Marilyn! There are also many things and places to enjoy around the cabin. We really had a great time at the cabin!

Everything you wanted and needed in a Kentucky Lake vacation home

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is comfortable, cozy and fun. (There are many family pictures and decorations that put a smile on your face.) Marilyn & Joe, the owners have a well maintained, amazingly stocked cabin that says WECOME! inside and out. We wanted to explore the KY Lake/ Land Between the Lakes area and this was the perfect place to start our daily adventures and end with an evening on the deck or inside with a good book. We said we felt we had spent a couple of days at the home of good friends. We can recommend this cabin and we are sure that their other rentals also in New Concord (The Cottage and The Man Cave) would be just as great if this one is unavailable.
