KENTUCKY LAKE'S BEST VIEW! 4 BR/3 BA PRIVATE SWIMMING POOL

Kentucky Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 4 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 9)

This 2800 square-foot house is situated with a fantastic view on enormous Kentucky Lake (which has more shoreline than Lake Superior). An absolute fisherman's paradise, Kentucky Lake is known as some of the best crappie fishing in the world, and just last summer several big largemouth bass and a 10-pound catfish were caught straight off the owner's dock. AS OF NOV 1,2013 we are 50 miles from a 100 million dollar park that houses a world class museum, botanical gardens, aquarium etc... Discoveryparkofamerica.com Great for all ages.

The house has four bedrooms, each with a lake view - two upstairs and two downstairs. UPSTAIRS RENOVATED 2009 and finished in 2011. New beautiful wood floors and beautiful countertops. Both bathrooms upstairs are completely renovated and beautiful. The upper bedrooms each have a bathroom and each have a king size bed. The newly renovated Washington suite is awesome. Downstairs there is one bathroom next to the bedroom with a queen size bed. The other room has bunk beds and another single -- perfect for the kids. Pets are NOT allowed. No exceptions! No Smoking.

The large living room upstairs has a gas-log fireplace, a large surrounding balcony and a stunning view. The upstairs and downstairs both have a large living area (fantastic lake view) with leather furniture. Downstairs totally renovated in 2010 .There is a wood-burning fireplace (not used) and a sauna along with a full-size desk for the workaholic. Other amenities include a private heated large (30by20) swimming pool, foosball table, Bose music system, fax machine and copier. A seven-person jacuzzi (old 3 person one replaced in May 2013) is an extra $150 per rental. A recent guest said out of 40 rental places they have been to mine was the best and was most equipped. They did not need any of the extra cooking supplies they had brought. THERE ARE MANY REASONS WHY MY SUMMERS ARE BOOKED THE YEAR BEFORE!!! 2010 gutted bedrooms and completely redone. New furniture. Check out photos. 2011 saw the completion of the inside being completely remodeled. All new flooring, wiring, lighting, walls. new house!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! New Hot-Tub 2013 and now a fire pit

PEACEFUL and QUIET!!

This property is situated only three miles from Miller Memorial Golf Course, which has been ranked among the top designed public courses in the nation by Golf Digest. The best thing is that green fees are only $15!

About The Owner

I am a Campus Minister at Murray State University and have been for 35 plus years. The Ministry is called Christ Ambassadors. Google Murray Chi Alpha I have traveled around the world on missions trips but my favorite place is here in Murray, Ky. which was named the friendliest city in the nation by U.S.A. Today.

The Owner purchased this house in 1998

Why The Owner chose Kentucky Lake

I love the water and the location (peaceful and stunning views) as well as the home.

What makes this house unique

I do not get to stay in the house very much as I update every winter and it is totally rented out during the summer. Very unique benefits are swimming pool, stunning lake view, lake front, sauna, fax machine, Bose music system located right outside the city limits of the friendliest city in America according to U.S.A. Today. I challenge you to find another house like it anywhere!!!

Wonderful view and Beautiful Upgrades

  • 5 of 5
I was very impressed as soon as I walked through the door. I had stayed at the house in years past and remembered some of its dated features. But the most recent renovations are spectacular. The upstairs living room has beautiful hardwood floors and great leather furniture. The kitchen looks very sharp now too with brand new appliances and new granite counter tops. All rental homes say the the kitchen is fully stocked, but this one really is. My wife and I stayed in the new Washington Suite which was definitely first class. Every detail in both the bedroom and bathroom was excellent. Most of our time was spent in the upstairs and every bit of the furnishings have a high quality feel, something I greatly care about in a rental property. The view and lake access was as good as ever. We appreciated the effort Mark (the owner) put into giving us a very clean and well done house. You will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: It is always great to have people return, and it is a delight to have you and your wife as guests. My favorite room is the Washington Suite also. I continue to spend thousands of dollars every year to make this the best property available. My goal is to make this a 6 star vacation experience for everyone!!!!!!!!!!

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time. The house is quite nice, roomy and perfect for a family. The pool was another big +. Kentucky Lake is spectacular. We also appreciated the owner's ability to help us rent a pontoon boat. The only thing to keep in mind... there are no laundry facilities. We've rented the house again in 2015.

Everything we hoped for, and more

  • 5 of 5
Even in the off season, the getaway was perfect. Enjoyed the hot tub during the crisp cold. Got a round of golf in at a close course while the wives went antique shopping in town. The other reviews were right, the view of the lake from where ever you are in the house are amazing. The house had all the top notch accommodations, from the tv to the mattresses to the kitchen appliances and even the silverware. Catching up with old friends and making new ones needs a comfortable, relaxing place and this one does not disappoint! Looking forward to making this a regular visit!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the gracious review. It was great having your family and friends at the house. My house has always been booked a year in advance for the summer months but more and more people like you are enjoying it in the off-season. I look forward to seeing you again. May the Lord Jesus Christ bless you and yours.

Lake Weekend

  • 5 of 5
We met some friends at this property for the weekend. It was the perfect size for 2 families with children. We loved the view, the fire pit and all the outdoor space. The kitchen was well stocked and we had everything we needed to cook 2 breakfasts and 2 dinners. The owner even came by to make sure we had everything we needed and that we were enjoying ourselves. Looking forward to coming back someday.

Relaxation At Its Finest

  • 5 of 5
What a great week of memories that were made at this beautiful lakefront retreat! When you first drive up, there is little indication of what awaits you when you walk through the front door. The view through the wall of windows, the deck, or anywhere on the property for that matter, offers quite the "Wow!" factor. And when the views have sunk in, there is more-than-ample opportunity to fulfill the desire of your visit - whether you are looking to just relax and soak it all in, or sprinkle in a buffet of family fun.

We were visiting with extended family - six adults and four children in all - and there was a great time to be had by all. The house is very spacious and well designed for both shared living space and for time needed to oneself. It is very well equipped with everything you might need for your stay as well. Even if you have a hard time "unplugging" yourself, you will be happy to know that there is cable TV with flat panel TV's and WiFi for your internet needs. The owner made sure we felt very welcome, with candles lit and fresh food and snacks waiting. He was also very helpful in answering whatever questions we had about the property, the lake and things to do/places to eat in the surrounding area. The swimming pool was a great attraction, especially for the kids, and is plenty big to be enjoyed by a large group. Due to some storms that moved through at the beginning of our stay, we even requested for the pool to be vacuumed and it was done right away.

We had also rented a pontoon for the week and introduced the kids to tubing. That was a big hit as well. The location of the property on this particular branch off Kentucky Lake is ideal for boating and water sports - and it was not crowded at all.

The other primary activity for the week was fishing. All of our fishing was done from the home's private dock and kept the whole group hooked for the entire week. We caught bluegill, sunfish, catfish, large-mouth bass, striped bass, crappie and even a couple that we weren't quite sure what they were. Some were of good size too, with a few lines being snapped and several that we could see were, "the big one that got away."

We wrapped up our visit on the final night by enjoying S'mores around a beautiful campfire at the lakefront fire pit. What a beautiful setting. We highly recommend this rental - along with stocking up on bug spray and worms for fishing!

The perfect retreat place

  • 5 of 5
Our staff of 10 wanted a place for a retreat that was private but had enough space to accommodate all of us. This lake house was perfect! The furnishings were beautiful, comfortable, and clean; the kitchen had all the appliances we needed to cook our meals; and the upstairs fireplace added a warm, welcoming touch. The view of the lake, from either upstairs or downstairs, was breath taking even in "off-season" when we were there (early March), and the area was quiet and peaceful. It also had Wi-Fi and plasma TV’s with cable in every bedroom and living room with other electronic helps. Its detail to excellence is quickly noticed. It was spacious and warm with three complete baths. The owner was also very nice and helpful - he gave us some good recommendations for local restaurants. We couldn't have asked for a better retreat place. We highly recommend this property and hope to return again ourselves.

Owner's Response: I am glad you enjoyed your visit. One of the purposes of me buying the house was so people could have personal, family and church retreats. It is a perfect place to reflect on the Greatness and Glory of God!!!!! May the Lord Jesus bless your group as you continue to further the Kingdom of God. Thanks for coming and the nice review.
