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!!!

Great value for the money

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful experience. The cabin was clean and inviting and the owners were very accommodating and receptive to your needs in supplying the little things you may have forgotten and much more. A joy to have met and gracious hosts. Many nearby fishing spots and a peaceful retreat. Thank you so much!

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.
