About Melinda

I grew up in Mayfield KY about 20 miles from the lake. I now liv n St Louis MO and I am a lawyer. We built this house so that we could visit our aging parents without the hassle of packing and unpacking all of the time. The house was built for us, not as an income property so it has many touches that other rental houses do not have - huge fireplace, oversized windows overlooking the lake, high end appliances, high ceilings, tall doors,maple and cherry floors in the bedrooms, cherry handrails, large yard (3+ acres) etc. After 3 of our parents died we no longer came to the lake as often but could not bear to sell the house where we had spent so much quality time and where our grandchildren had made so many memories. We decided to rent our house through Homeaway so that others could have great memories there as well.

Melinda purchased this house in 1998

Why Melinda chose Kentucky Lake

Since we live in a large city, we wanted a place that was away from the hustle and bustle. We found that here. The house sits on 3 acres plus TVA land. We have deer and other wildlife everywhere. At night the stars are very bright and unobstructed by light pollution. You hear the sounds of nature instead of the rumble of cars.

What makes this house unique

We love that you can see the lake from every room of the house. Even the bathrooms have views of the woods. Sitting on the deck at night with a fire or watching the moon rise over the lake is a priceless treat. Kids can play in the woods or yard and you do not have to worry about them. It is just a good place to be..

great place

  • 5 of 5
the house was in perfect shape and well taken care of. the veiws are stunning with the entire back of the house being all windows the veiw of the lake is great. the boat dock is a great place to hang out and have a fire at dusk. very peaceful and private. The back deck is a nice place to have a cook out for dinner or lunch. And the sat light tv came in handy when them uninspecting storms come.

Owner's Response: Thank you. We love the lake house and are glad that others appreciate it as well. The only problem - we are renting it so much that we hardly get to use it ourselves anymore!

To say that we had a wonderful time on our families weekend get away would be an understatement. The house was absolutely perfect with plenty of space. During the time of the year that we visited it turned cold and the water was down to much for us to swim, but our grand dogs, Jax and Jess swam enough for all of us. At one time I on the dock swing by myself and there was no other sound than the wind blowing thru the trees. No car horns, loud music nothing but the sound of nature. My family is already looking for dates that we can return in the summer.

Incredibly beautiful home and view!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family celebrated our 6th year on the 4th of July weekend and have already booked for next year! A beautiful clean home with an amazing view of the lake. Our children and grandchildren look forward to coming here every year and always ask that we come back. Everything you need is here and ready to use. We bring our boat to their dock and use their paddle boats or just sit on the dock to relax. This is such a peaceful place and we are so glad Melinda shares her home with us.

Fantastic place to get away and relax!

  • 5 of 5
My family and i stayed for a long weekend. The home was in perfect condition. Everything was clean and cozy. The lake was beautiful and made the perfect backdrop. We enjoyed catching some rays on the dock and on the paddle boat. My nieces enjoyed fishing. I was able to bring my two dogs. They had the best time investigating the premises and swimming in the lake.

I would definitely consider coming back to this diamond in the rough! Great place to get away from the hustle and bustle of life and hit the pause button for a few days!!! We loved it! Thank you for providing the opportunity!

Beautiful views

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful, relaxing spot! The views of the water are stunning and many hours were spent fishing off the covered dock. The house was well kept and had a well stocked kitchen. Both the gas and weber grill had lots of use! We rented a pontoon boat from Ken Lake Marina and had a blast out on the water. We had a wonderful time at this lake house and Melinda was wonderful to work with.

Everything you need in a home away from home...

You get what you see here only a little better! Very inviting, cozy atmosphere and the decorating is nice as well. Close to several state parks for a variety of activities. Quiet, remote area is fantastic. The dock and outside areas are great! The dock has a swing, hammock, fire pit, paddle boat, chairs, etc. Part of the dock is covered for those not wanting the sun but a section is uncovered for those who want it. There was even a ceiling fan above the hammock! Everyone's happy on the dock!

The kitchen seemed to have everything, including a bottle opener for my wine. I initially started to grumble because I meant to bring one but it turns out Melinda has thought of everything. Satellite TV was a nice plus for late evenings and even though I didn't put my iPod on the dock it was nice to know that I could. Plenty of outlets for charging cell phones and laptops. There was a small storm go through and the satellite went out briefly but there were some movies on the DVR so we still had something to watch.

We golfed several courses in a 45 minute radius and the variety was enjoyable. A couple of the courses (Calvert City comes to mind) were extremely well maintained. If you plan to eat out and you're visiting outside of the summer season, be prepared to drive 20-35 minutes. Locally, The Dinner Bell provides some great home-style cooking served smorgasbord style and Kentucky Dam State Park has a nice menu.

All in all...everything was great and I would certainly recommend this home to anyone. We enjoyed celebrating our 25th anniversary in this home away from home.

Very private area. Great for getting away from it all. Sleep in the

hammock on the dock. Float in the lake and sun or, if you bring your boat, enjoy boating and tubing/skiing on Jonathan Creek. Fall color is gorgeous. This house is surrounded by woods and is not in a subdivision. Paddle boat available for tenant use.

Other Activities: Boating/fishing (guides available nearby)/ hiking TVA lands around the house and Land Between the Lakes.

Golf: Many golf curses available nearby. Ky Dam golf course is a well maintained 18 hole course. Kenlake has a very nice 9 hole course. Miller Golf Course is operated by Murray State University and is excellent. There are many others available in the area.
