This four bedroom log home is located on 26 wooded acres in Lyon County, Kentucky, a half mile from beautiful Barkley/Kentucky Lakes, one of the largest man-made lakes in the U.S.; with a launch for your boat, 1/2 to 3 miles from the cabin.
Rental boats are available including house boats. Boat, fish, ski, wake board, picnic, or enjoy lunch at waterside restaurants.
You can enjoy your own 5 acre lake on the property, stocked with bass, bluegill, and catfish, or just relax at the boat house or on the screened in porch. Available for your use is a canoe, small fishing boat with trolling motor, water bike, and swimming; all kid friendly.
'Paradise', whether '5' or '85'. Open field for other activities such as volley ball, baseball, or football. Use your imagination.
I retired in 1995 and built this property a few years later. I am a fly fisherman and enjoy KY and Barkely Lakes and take my ranger boat out often. One thing I love to do here is have my annual fish fry and music jam sometime in May. We catch our own fish and pot luck the rest. I've been a hunter and the mounts in the lodge reflect some of my treasures.
I wanted some place the family could use with or without me. I owned boats and when I gave that up I needed a new hobby. My grandchildren all are in to sports but I could always pull them back to nature when we stayed over at the lake lodge whether it was catching a frog or a lizard, even harmless snakes. We had scavenger hunts, buried treasure finds, caught their first fish, played 'king of the mountain', had campfires, hikes, water bike rides and so much more.
It is a 16 acre playground. A 5 acre lake with 2 canoes, a fishing boat, a water bike, a fire pit and tree house that my grandson and I built. I don't know of anything to compare it to. It is close to restaurants and an abundant of attractions. The lakes are just a half mile away for launching a boat and that opens a whole new world.
For the nature lover, hike the trails around the lake or to the frog pond. Climb a tree before a game of horse shoes on the levee or a scavenger hunt in the woods. Pets are welcome outdoors only and that is where they want to be. A 6x8 kennel is convenient for their safety when you leave the property and for sleeping in the dog house.
Other Activities: Boating, mini golf, shopping, kayaking, wildlife viewing, horseshoes
