About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Sleeps 12-24, Lake View & Access! Sister property next door!

New improvements for 2018! We have covered the back deck! Now there is plenty of room to eat, hang out, and relax in the shade and out of the rain when it comes! Last year we added a fire pit and remodeled the downstairs bath to include a shower. We have also added a sister property next door allowing us to accommodate an additional 10 guests. Please contact us if you have a large group and need the extra space! We can now accommodate groups up to 24 people! Our house is situated near the end of a private drive shared by 3 families. We like to call it "The Lake House". This 5 bedroom house (one of the bedrooms is a loft) will comfortably sleep up to 14 people although the rates are based on 12 occupants. Additional guests may stay at a rate of $25/guest per night. You will enjoy an amazing family room with comfy couches, a stone gas fireplace (used seasonally), and a high ceiling with large windows looking out over the lake. There is a well equipped kitchen and dining area with a table that will seat 10. From the kitchen you can walk out onto the upper deck and relax or operate the available gas grill. The master bedroom is on the main floor and has a king bed and a door that leads out onto the back deck. There is also a full bath on this main level. Upstairs is the loft with a queen size bed, a small bedroom with a twin size trundle bed, and another full bath. The lowest level in the home has two bedrooms, each with a twin over full bunk bed. There is a bathroom on this level with a shower. The laundry is located just off of one of the bedrooms. There is a family room on this level that has a game table, a sleeper sofa, a gas fireplace (used seasonally), and a 55" TV with BlueRay, and DVD.

There is WIFI available throughout the house and on the deck. There is a large upper deck overlooking the lake with plenty of space for everyone! There is a lower deck with a porch swing perfect for enjoying the beautiful view of the lake. The family room and one of the bedrooms open onto this lower deck.

The house is just a short walk from the lake down a set of easy stairs. There is dock access and the swimming and fishing is great from the dock too!

While staying at our house, you are just minutes from Bailey's Point Recreation area and public boat ramp, minutes from Barren River Lake State Park, and about 45 minutes from Bowling Green, KY. It would be easy to visit the National Corvette Museum, or Mammoth Caves.

This is a great place for families to enjoy some quiet, relaxing, fun times together. You will be staying in a fairly private area and although there are houses close by, this is a quiet neighborhood. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is the place!

This lake is managed by the Army Corp. of Engineers. The water level is regulated to be at summer levels from May through the middle of October. From the middle of October until the first part of May, the lake is at its winter level and all private docks on the lake are unusable. During this time, the lake cannot be seen from the house. The lakebed is still a fun place to walk and there is a small creek that flows year round. During the summer, the lake level stays fairly constant unless there are heavy rains or extreme drought. Because of this, we cannot guarantee what the water level will be. Please ask questions if you have any.

About Tom Nazarenus

I, Tom, and my wife Lisa own this house with her parents John and Rita. We live not far away in Tennessee. Lisa and her parents have lived in the area for nearly 30 years, and I have lived in the area for about 8 years. Lisa and I have two children, a 5 year old, and a 3 year old so life is very exciting. Our entire family enjoys being near the lake, and so we are excited to share that experience with you through the use of our house!

Tom Nazarenus purchased this house in 2015

Why Tom Nazarenus chose Scottsville

We chose this property for several reasons. The quiet private drive, the quiet cove on the lake, and the direct lake access and lake views. We love to boat and ski so finding a place right on the water was very important to us. With small children, we wanted a place where we could enjoy the water with them without having to be far from home. This house was perfect for us!

What makes this house unique

We knew this was the house for us when we walked in and saw the amazing stone fireplace and high ceiling. The views of the lake from the living room and back deck are incredible. Enjoying a place like this by yourself is wonderful, but so is sharing it with your friends. This place is certainly large enough to share! There are two nice family rooms to enjoy. The main level has comfortable leather sofas, a fireplace (seasonally used), and large windows with great views of the lake. The second family room is set up for games and movies with a table, comfortable seating, a 55" TV with BlueRay/DVD, and a gas fireplace (used seasonally). The upper level deck provides room for your entire group and a place to cook out. The lower deck, although smaller, still provides lots of space and a porch swing to enjoy the great views of the lake. The house right next door is also available to rent allowing us to accommodate groups of up to 24 people! It has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a nice deck, and a great view of the lake as well! Come make some great memories with your family!

Beautiful homes, great lake, peaceful cove!

  • 5 of 5

We rented both homes - both are beautiful and are the best equipped rentals (utensils, seating, linens, cleaning products, etc.) that we've experienced. The covered porch (with ceiling fans!) is great for eating outdoors. The state park marina is close by to rent boats and it's so nice to have the docks to use. The homes are situated on a quiet cove for swimming (and there's a ladder on the dock). We thoroughly enjoyed our time and will be back!

Wonderful experience, great house, location and host!

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 families with children staying in this house - it was absolutely wonderful! Everything was very clean, well organized, plenty of kitchen supplies, etc. New roof with fans over the deck was great - made the large deck usable even when it rained. Our kids had a lot of fun at the lake! Yes, there are steps down to the lake but it was doable even for our 4 year old kids. Hosts were next door and very welcoming and helpful! Tom even took kids (and some lucky adults) for a boat ride/tubing! Thank you for making our getaway so lovely!

Awesome place

  • 5 of 5

We had 18 grown men at the house for a fishing weekend. We were all comfortable and had room to spare. House was very clean and all beds were very comfortable. Great fire pit and decks for relaxing. Tom was easy to work with and very responsive. We looked at a lot of different properties on different lakes and this is by far one of the best. We plan on returning.

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for staying with us Mark! You were the first group to experience the completed deck project. The weather was so nice you probably didn’t need the covering. Sorry the fish weren’t interested! They haven’t been for us either! Guess you’ll have to come back and try again! We would be happy to have you. Tom

Beautiful, with everything you needed!

  • 5 of 5

This house had everything we needed for a weekend away! It’s so worrisome wondering if the place you will be at will be clean, and welcoming- this is! By far one of the cleanest rentals I’ve been in! All the bedrooms had clean linens and quilts. Their bed had washcloths and towels associated with them for bathing. Plenty of trash cans and bags around the house. A fully equipped kitchen with TONS of utensils and dinnerware! This house would be amazing with gorgeous weather so you can utilize the lakefront property and fire pit outside. We would be back in a heartbeat! Thank you for your hospitality!!

Owner's Response: Glad you had a great stay Sydney. I am happy to say that the back deck is now covered! Even if it rains, you’ll have a dry place to enjoy with your friends! Thanks again for choosing to stay with us.

Wonderful retreat at the lake

  • 5 of 5

My family had a fantastic visit to the Lake House! The accommodations were exactly as described, very comfortable and well appointed. The house provided space for our party of eight to relax together as well as a separate space for the teens to hang out in the lower level. The kitchen was thoughtfully outfitted with everything we needed to prepare meals for our group. The Lake House was the perfect retreat for our families to spend time together. We would definitely return.

great family place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at your beautiful place. The parking lot was so NICE for us as we had four cars. House was well stocked with paper products, clean and warm (on this very cold weekend we were grateful for that)! Thanks for your great rental.
