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.

William Parker purchased this lodge in 1998

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.

Great Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at the Parker Lodge and found the property to be perfect for our needs. The little swimming area was just right for our 2.5yr old and the big guys had fun swimming and fishing. The house was beautiful and had everything we needed. Working with the Parker family was easy and pleasant. I highly recommend this for a family getaway.

Amazing place

  • 5 of 5
This place had everything you need to never have to leave. We had other families with us and it was great bc you all could be doing different things and not on top of each other the whole time. So many areas of entertainment from living areas on different levels of the house to the sunroom and awesome loft for the kids. The private lake was great to play on and swim. Loved the tree house and little beach for the kids. We took a 4 wheeler and rode on the trails and clearings on the property. It's was great all around. We will be back! Felt like summer camp for all ages!

Owner's Response: What a lovely review. We are so happy that you and your entire party enjoyed themselves. We built and used the"Ultimate Getaway" when our grandchildren were young but they do grow up... now in college... so we decided to share. "Camp for all Ages" is a wonderful description and they now bring their young adult friends and girl friends and always have a great time showing them our nature show. Learning about wildlife such as frogs, fish, deer, crickets and even owls is a highlight for them and fun to share. So happy you used our trails. We are always excited when our guests want to return and look forward to seeing you in the future.

Thank you for taking time to write this review.

Sincerely,

The Parkers

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
We just had a weekend girls getaway and played a murder mystery game. This place was more than what we expected! When you step on the front porch, there are two nice porch swings. On entering the cabin, the decor is just outstanding! It takes you quite a while to take it all in! There are so many details that it is just entertaining to just soak it all in! There are animals, pelts, artifacts, beautiful rugs and top quality furnishings. The owners have brought their personalities to life to share with us renters! Quite impressive. You feel as you are at home on vacation with the Parkers. You will meet their cute little grandsons in the pictures scattered throughout the cabin. You see the love of fishing and hunting of the Parker men. It's obvious the homeyness and love Mrs. Parker has of her place. The beds are very comfortable with nice linens. Everything is so clean. We all marveled on how difficult it must be to keep the place so clean! There is more than enough room for everyone to spread out. Plenty of chairs to lounge on. The kitchen is small, but fully stocked. I didn't want or need for anything. The air conditioning was very comfortable and the showers were plenty hot with good water pressure. Two refrigerators help with storage of groceries. We never turned on a TV, but the stereo was nice. Even the little bait shop was clean and stocked with bait in a little fridge! The dock is very nice with a ladder to get into the lake and out easily. It was fun to ride the "bicycle boat" and kayaks. Our group had such an awesome weekend. Everyone wants to come back again next year. The pictures on this site are pretty accurate, if I had to say anything that was different from the descriptions...."it's just better!" I had several questions that I emailed prior to our stay and Mrs. Parker was quick to reply. No complains....you will absolutely love this place! Only suggestion I might have, it would be nice to have a hot tub, especially if you wanted to stay in the fall.

FUN FUN FUN!!

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a wonderful week at the lodge with our four grandchildren!! They range in age from 2-8. THEY LOVED IT!! Our grand daughter from Texas caught her first fish! We rode the water bike , kayak, and the canoe. They loved their own little "beach" and they loved the tree house. We made S'mores each night. The property is very well maintained and decorated beautifully. Lots of nice touches with special attention to detail. The property had life jackets, water toys, etc. The only thing we needed was our bathing suits and food. The loft area is adorable!!!!!! We had no trouble getting the kids to bed because they couldn't wait to sleep in their "tents" as they called them. We made alot of wonderful family memories!! One grand daughter has already asked if we can go again next year and another suggested we buy it and "all" live there together because it was so much fun! We are all ready to go back! The owners were also very nice to work with and you can tell they take alot of pride in their property and are very hospitable! Thank you for sharing with our family and for helping to make some unforgettable memories with our babies!!

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.

'Mr. Moose' hangs on the stone fireplace upstairs in the gathering room and bear rugs hug the floors. 'Mr. Deer' settled over the downstairs fireplace. Wrap around deck with lake view, also seen from screened in porch, dining room, and lower patio with picnic tables. Bring a book, listen for the sounds of nature and catch a few rays. Seasonal enjoyment; the wood-burning fireplaces have ample wood supplied for the winter months, spring delights with mild weather and blossoming dogwoods, summer provides outdoor activities around the lake and fall changes to breath-taking foliage and cool evening camp fires. Unique In Every Way.
