About Phyllis Johnson

We loved sharing our home (Edgewater Retreat) . Our guest said that they loved our home and enjoyed working with us. They were not happy because it stayed booked all the time. They kept wanting time that we didn't have open. This home Driftwood came open and was near our other one. So we took it on in order to try to help our guest that wanted to come back for a visit.

We are so excited with Driftwood.

We just love meeting and sharing our homes with our guest.

Its nice to help make family memories .

Phyllis Johnson purchased this house in 2014

Why Phyllis Johnson chose Cadiz

Driftwood is a nice size home and near our home Edgewater Retreat. It sits on the water so you have easy access to the water. Its secluded and makes for a great get away.

Most of our guest come and meet up with other family members to have

a reunion . So with the size of Driftwood it works very well.

Great place to vacation with a large group!

  • 5 of 5

We had plenty of room for our group of 22. It’s a well maintained house with a well stocked kitchen. WiFi was pretty slow but otherwise we thoroughly enjoyed our stay.

You Can't Beat This Fantastic Value for a Large Family!

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy overall with our Driftwood experience on Lake Barkley. We had a group of 5 adults and 10 kids for our vacation in KY. The home was clean and there was enough space for everyone to sleep in a very comfortable bed. We really appreciated the extra bedding and extra towels provided. Phyllis was kind enough to give us a call as we were arriving on Saturday afternoon to see if we had any last second questions. The main kitchen area was very large and stocked with extra things like paper plates, baggies, and trash bags. We appreciated the board games and pool table to keep everyone busy when we weren't on the lake. The fire pit was nice with plenty of wood provided. The BBQ grill was nice as well. We enjoyed the two kayaks on the water too. Our family has rented multiple large homes in multiple states and overall we feel Driftwood was one of the best values we have ever had. The house sits on nice cove/secluded part of the lake.

This is nothing to do with the house but I just wanted to warn the boaters that there were many logs and sticks in the water. Please be careful at high speeds.

Our very minor improvements/suggestions include some needed repairs to the community dock entry and kitchen appliances.

We had a great time overall at Driftwood! Thanks for the great hospitality!

Owner's Response: Glad you guys enjoyed the house and found everything you needed. Sorry that the dock ladder broke on you. Wanted to let you know got it put back on. With all the mass rain that we had before you arrived caused the logs in the lakes . Sorry Look forward to having you back again

Perfect for our group of 18

  • 4 of 5

The property is really nice and quite convenient to the lake. We had 2 boats with us that could be docked right there, which was great. The hill to get down to the lake is a killer when you’re coming back with coolers, etc. would be too much for someone elderly. It would be nice to have a wagon with big wheels on it to use for carrying stuff to and from the boat. The Midges are terrible, so we had to be diligent about keeping doors closed, especially at night. Lots of dead ones stuck to the sliding doors, which is kind of gross, but not a huge deal. We are a cooking family, so I was unhappy with the pots and pans... Very lightweight and Teflon pealing off... bring your own pans, cutting board and knives if you like to cook. Also the towels are nearly threadbare. Bring your own. All of the games they have in the closet are missing pieces. Bring your own. All that said, we had a great time and the property is lovely for large groups. Everyone had a comfortable spot to sleep and there are plenty of bathrooms. The main living area is roomy and we had no problem with 18 people in there. All in all I would highly recommend Driftwood Retreat.

Owner's Response: Glad you guys enjoyed your stay. Look forward to having you stay with me again if you get the chance. So sorry about the games . Thank you for letting me know I didn’t realize pc were missing. I will go tomorrow and buy new ones to put in there and throw the other ones away. I will check the pots pan and towels replace any that needs it I go by my guest and everyone has been happy with them so I didn’t realize that there was a problem But now that I know I need to replace some I will get right on it. I try and make sure my guest have everything they need. Never really thought about a wagon because I have the road that goes to the dock that trucks use. But I will look into that thanks for the ideal. Thanks Phyllis

Perfect for Large Groups

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of 18 adults, and this house was perfect. The kitchen is well stocked with utensils, appliances, etc. The beds were all comfortable. We had enough space to spread out. We really enjoyed our weekend!
