About Mike and Jo Bailey

We live in Wisconsin on the south shore of Lake Superior. We owned and rented a cottage on Madeline Island in Bayfield, WI for 17 years, so we know what visitors to an area like. We have 7 of 14 grandchildren in KY so wish to visit, but are more than willing to share the cottage with you when we are not there.

Mike and Jo Bailey purchased this cottage in 2014

Why Mike and Jo Bailey chose Dunmor

We looked for a wilderness lake near our children and found a perfect kayak spot with wildlife and awesome views. This home is fully equipped with all the necessities available in city life, plus the seclusion, quiet, and privacy found only in a wilderness setting. Each of the 3 decks looks out on the finger cove. Sunrises and sunsets are spectacular.

What makes this cottage unique

Our cabin provides solitude and luxury in a natural setting. The lake contains a wilderness reserve, with a scattering of private residences. Fishing, boating, sailing, and kayaking are primary visitor preoccupations. Eagles, deer, turkeys, squirrels, and birds of all kinds share the beauty of the area. Lake Malone is within a half hour of larger communities and city activities. Parks, Bike trails, museums, and historical sites are all within easy travel distance. A restaurant/resort is ten minutes away for local dining at a reasonable price. Residents are welcoming and friendly.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Loved the house and the views, especially waking up to the sunrise and seeing the sunset. The house was equipped with everything we needed.

The owners were very friendly and answered all our questions.

Relaxing getaway

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves. The place had everything we needed from kitchen essentials, laundry, towels, bedding....very clean and cozy home right on lake Malone. We relaxed on the decks soaking up sun or sipping on coffee looking at the peaceful view, fished right off the dock or floated in the lake to cool off. We really needed a break from daily life and that's exactly what we did here. We will be back again next month to share the experience with our daughter and friends!!!

This is small-town quiet created/preserved for Nature lovers and fisher-people. We are in a no-wake zone with many kayaks and canoes. Sunrise and sunset are awesome! We maintain a booklet listing local and regional activities onsite at the cottage. WiFi is available for those who enjoy looking at and listening to the outdoors will sitting on either one of two open air porches or an enclosed deck off the main floor.

Visitors enjoy escaping city heat by coming to the lake. On days of excess humidity, the cottage air conditioning system keeps all three floors comfortable. Many renters find that they like to plan excursion side trips to larger cities such as Bollingreen, Nashville, or Clarksville. After a day in the those communities, the subtle sounds of nature and a golden sunset are a welcome way to shed tensions and kick back.

History buffs, nature buffs, golf enthusiasts, bargain hunting shoppers and environmental experience officienatoes all will find opportunities in the large and small communities, as well as the undeveloped areas in this region of the state.
