Lake Malone Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath, sleeps 7

This spacious lake front cabin has a beautiful, scenic view of the lake from two decks. Relax in the rockers on front porch from which deer, wild turkey, and raccoons are often spotted. You'll want to spend at least one evening roasting hot dogs and marshmallows around the campfire.

From the private boat dock fish for channel catfish, large mouth bass, crappie, and red ear sunfish. Bring your own boat and park it at the private dock. Or take the rowboat for a leisurely paddle up the cove. We also furnish two kayaks and a pedalboat for your enjoyment. Lake Malone State Park in Western Kentucky is known for its unusual sandstone cliffs.

The interior of the house is trimmed with antique barn wood on all three floors. It has been creatively decorated with antiques, vintage linens, and hand made crafts. A game room is located in the loft with a pool table and 1950's pin ball machine.

During your visit you will want to check out the 'museum' and Santa room located next door to the Stewart House.

The three bedrooms are located on the main floor and two have a breathtaking view from the treetops. Sleep in the Kentucky Room with the authentic Kentucky moonshine still which was raided by the revenuers, Mama's Bedroom, or the Butterfly Room.

Cook your breakfast on the 100-year-old wood cook stove, converted to electric. The lower floor also opens onto a very large tin roof covered deck - you'll be thrilled to see it rain! The den has a large fireplace to warm yourself by if your visit occurs during the cooler season.

All you will need for your visit is your clothes and food. The cabin is well-equipped with supplies. This peaceful, rustic, country cabin is the perfect escape for you and your loved ones.

About Geraldine Ewing

I retired in 2008 after serving for 20 years as the local Baptist associational secretary. Prior to that I was a real estate salesperson and appraiser for 10 years. My hobbies are going to auctions, antique shops, flea markets and yard sales in hopes of finding a treasure for the Stewart House or our other vacation rental on Lake Malone, Little Cliff Cabin. My husband and I have two rather spoiled 3/4 poodle dogs, Quito and Domingo, from a former exchange student we had from Ecuador. We have 3 sons and 8 grandchildren.

Geraldine Ewing purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Geraldine Ewing chose Lake Malone

We are both from Muhlenberg County and when our children left for college our large Victorian home was more than we wanted. We decided to move to Lake Malone State Park because we have always spent so much time relaxing and playing on it. We bought our present home so our children would be on 'vacation' when they came to visit. For about 10 years we got to know Mr. Stewart when he came to work on his vacation home located next door to our home. When he passed away we decided to buy his house and make it a vacation home for others because it would be something to keep us busy during retirement. It works out perfectly because we are available if a problem arises. It is perfect for our large family's Thanksgiving feast with the all night campfire and pig roast. Both houses are full with as many beds as our family and friends need.

What makes this cabin unique

Our guests tell me that they love staying at The Stewart House because it is different than their homes. The items filling and decorating the cabin are either old or unusual. It is for the family looking for a place they can get away from it all and enjoy each other's company with the knowledge that sightseeing is only an hour or two away. A great benefit of owning The Stewart House is meeting people from all over the US. We have had visitors from almost every state. People find it is a good meeting place since it is located roughly in the middle of the country. I also get to spend a lot of time searching for that perfect unique item for decorating. I have been told by visitors that they have spent a week and found some unusual item that they had missed. I love the special touches that Mr. Stewart put in it such as the staircase that crosses the windows because he forgot that he had to have a way to get to the top floor and the fact that so many of the construction materials were very old such as windows and the barn wood. It definitely has a personality all its own.

Where do you live?

Had a great time!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a nice time at The Stewart House. There are interesting things EVERYWHERE throughout the house, so it was fun just looking around and discovering new things. The amazing thing was that in spite of all this unusual decor, it was so incredibly clean and dust-free. I don't know how they do it. The kitchen was great - loved the slow cooker! We made all our meals there and it was as easy as being at home.

The area is beautiful. There are amazing hills and bluffs and water. Geraldine and Bill are so nice and live right next door, so they are there if you need them. We are still laughing about Bill telling Geraldine, "I think your renters are here...they are very cautious drivers!" I was indeed a little intimidated by the very steep hills and one lane roads meant for two cars, but it was an adventure and only the last couple of miles were like that.

My favorite part was going out on the deck at night and seeing the stars. I had forgotten that there are so many stars and that they are THAT bright. It was really awe inspiring.

We hiked at Lake Malone State Park, which was beautiful. I think in the summer it would be even more fun, because then you could get out on the water, too. As it was, there was plenty to do just in the house and we were very happy with our stay.

Grear Family Thanksgiving

  • 5 of 5

For something different, we brought the family here for a few days around Thanksgiving and everyone had a great time. Even did a Thanksgiving dinner, did take a little creativity but it can be done. The house decorating is really interesting, found myself just going through taking it all in. Be sure to read about the history of the house, found it very interesting. Would like to come back in the summer to take full advantage of the lake.

Owner's Response: So glad you had a great holiday at The Stewart House complete with a Thanksgiving dinner. Everyone loves the early 1900's cook stove my electrical engineer son transformed into a usable kitchen stove. He fitted it with electric burners but felt that it wouldn't be safe to use the oven so we filled it with a toaster oven. We have a microwave/convection oven and a roaster oven that hopefully will fit the bill when there are baking needs. It's good news to hear that you took time to read the history of the cabin because we feel it's more fun if you know the story behind what you are seeing. Hope you are able to make a return visit, there are some great places to check out within driving distance but if you prefer to just relax we think we have several nice spots around the cabin for that too. I've had guests tell me that they don't even mind rainy days!

Too good to be true and so much more! Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

We brought a group of teenagers to celebrate a 16th birthday. When I found Geraldine and Bill's cabin (The Stewart House) I was skeptical. It sounded too good to be true but it had great reviews. Renting this cabin was the best thing we could have possibly decided on. They really looked forward to the boats and headed straight out. The remainder of the trip was rain which cut out the bonfire too. You would think that would be a disappointment but they never ran out of stuff to do. The entire cabin is full of oohs, ahhs, wows, cools, and all those explicatives. We took pictures of everything. I would love to tell you all about it but this is one of those things you have to see it for yourself to really understand. I keep coming back to one thing. It was fun... every inch of it was fun and that was just what we wanted for them. Some of the best memories for birthdays so far. I don't care who you are or what you like, if it includes a mostly secluded and all encompassing lake cabin, this is worth the trip.

Many thanks to Geraldine and Bill. You made so many memories possible in such a short time. Your cabin was incredible.

Most wonderful family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the Stewart house for two weeks at the end of August and first week of September 2012. My father and step mother flew into Nashville from the UK and my husband, myself, my daughter (4 yrs) and son (18 months) drove from Maryland.

We thoroughly enjoy every moment spent at the house. It was in a beautiful location and far exceeded our expectations in many ways. The house was wonderfully decorated and very welcoming. We really enjoyed family time up in the loft playing games, puzzles, toys for the little ones, pool table and the ever popular pinball machine.

The bedrooms were very comfortable and pleasant. I Personally enjoyed sitting out on the deck outside of my bedroom. Very relaxing and peaceful. The bathrooms, as with the rest of the house, were very clean.

Our favorite place to relax and unwind as a family was down stairs in the living room, dining area and kitchen. It was such a perfect place to just simply be a family and get away from the day to day busyness to sometimes prevents those preciouse moments from being enjoyed?

The main deck with swinging chair and picnic table was a lovely spot to bring the family fun outdoors. The men of the family enjoyed using the grill and smoker. We also spent a great deal of time out on the lake. Either in the row boat or on one of the days that we rented to John Deer pontoon boat - which is highly recommended. We explore every inche of the marovlouse lake and spent time fishing and swimming at the beach which is a short drive away.

Other places that we visited were; Sandy Cliff restaurant, Bowling Green, Mammoth Cave, the Bowling green flea market, lake Malone state park, Nashville and on the way home Kentucky horse park in Lexington. I think our favorite place was to stay at the house and surrounding area and enjoy all that the Stewart house has to offer.

Geraldine and Bill were wonderful to meet. They live next door and were extremely kind, knowledgable and welcoming. They have provided such a wonderful place for the whole family to enjoy. I felt incredibly safe and right at home. Even with two small children I was still able to relax and unwind.

Thank you so much

Lake Malone State Park is a 788-acre lake enclosed by dramatic 50-foot sandstone bluffs rising above the water's edge and surrounded by hardwood forests. The 'easy rated' 1.5 mile Laurel Trail provides views of many rock walls, once used as shelters by Native Americans. The cabin is on the water with great fishing off the dock. The beach is nearby by boat, 1 mile around the lake by car but too rugged to walk the shoreline.

Within a short drive are Jefferson Davis Monument and East Union Quaker settlement. Bowing Green is one hour away with Beech Bend Amusement Park and Raceway, the National Corvette Museum and Lost River. Mamouth Cave is one hour and fifteen minutes away. Nashville, TN is one hour and fifteen minutes away.
