Overview

Kentucky Lake House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6) with on property Boat Rental.

THE MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY OF THIS HOME IS 6 GUESTS.

Rental Boats:

New this season - In addition to our Fishing / Ski Boat and Zodiac, we have upgraded our rental fleet with an 18.5 ft, War Eagle Tournament Bass Boat - equipped with the latest in side- scan sonar technology. Featuring Dual Lowrance GPS/ fish finders, dual live wells, bait well and 24V trolling motor. It has ample storage for tackle and fishing rods, Deep V design and whisper quiet 115HP Yamaha 4- stroke engine whisks you to the hot spots in comfort and style. Guests may have these boats delivered to their private dock with special rates established just for them.

With a total renovation to this 2450 square foot home complete it becomes the model for the optimum vacation experience in the area.

Having the closest proximity and most gentle slope to the water of any rental home in the vicinity are not the only reasons it delivers such an unrivaled experience on the Lake. Outstanding features and an extraordinary location are factors contributing to its distinctive standing. Unlike the resorts and rental homes in crowded coves with heavy boat traffic to which so many visitors to Kentucky Lake have grown accustom, here is a vast, wide open, peaceful vista across the main lake of the Land Between the Lakes.

The main deck is one of the outdoor spots to relax. From the branch of a surrounding tree a Bald Eagle may preside over a meal or casual break, he’s the perfect compliment to the awing view.

The options for stretching out in the sun or shade are right here - the deck is outfitted with comfortable chaises and dining tables. If the guests feel like relaxing even closer to the water, this home’s covered dock has a large swim platform perfect for taking in the view while soaking in some sun - It has an area for sitting in the shade, too.

The façade of this ideally positioned, traditional lake home is a perfect melding of Craftsman Style with Cedar Shake. Before even stepping inside one first senses its richness. The unparalleled view of the lake and warmth of the natural red cedar says welcome. The exterior accents of stained glass windows and lighting with complementing colors confirm the quality that signals the start of a very special time away for family and friends is about to begin.

Once inside it takes just a glance out of any of the numerous windows and doors for guests to know they have the ultimate vantage point. From the main deck, hand laid stone patio, and rooms on both levels, visitors find their attention drawn to the pristine blue water. It is so close that when rising in the morning, dining throughout the day, or just relaxing, one is struck by the familiarity of taking in the view from the balcony of a cruise ship. In reality this view is from a homey three bedroom, two and a half bath escape.

Upstairs is one of the home's two kitchens. Spacious, well equipped with a walk-in pantry, stainless appliances, granite countertops, and an Italian tile floor. The kitchen joins the dining room with hardwood floors and a unique raised stone fireplace. The combination makes for a large friendly space where many great meals are enjoyed surrounded by walls of windows facing the lake.

Upstairs are two bedrooms with lake views. One with two full beds and another has a queen bed, private half bath and its own large sliding glass door with direct access to the deck and the soothing lake view. The primary bathroom on this level is striking with an eight-foot, modern, custom designed shower stall, entirely clad in marine blue tile. It has a built in bench, shower heads at both ends, body jets, and a large stained glass window created by a local artisan.

The downstairs is reached by a spiral staircase. Numerous windows ensure the lake continues to be the focus. The bedroom here features sliding glass doors with a direct prospect of the lake. Its occupants may choose to step out onto the patio sitting area or remain in the comfort of their bed to find themselves inspired by the captivating morning sunrise, promising the perfect start to the day. One wall with interior arts & crafts style stained glass windows adds a dramatic architectural detail. This accommodation has access to a walk-in closet with a front-loading washer and dryer, as well as a full bath.

The main living space looks out on the water – the smallest of needs have been considered and met here. An eight-foot granite bar and an additional full kitchen outfitted with cherry-wood cabinets and stainless appliances provide all of the tools needed to entertain on the lower level with ease - it is the backdrop to the living room. Furnished with a great arrangement of comfortable seating – here is an area ideal for a special reunion that will remain etched in the minds of all who attend.

Carefree waterfront living was the objective when the home's deluxe, covered dock was selected:

The Fishing Possibilities at the dock are exceptional with a great population of bluegill, bass, crappie, and catfish.

As for the Access - Here there is no steep slope or long trek to your boat. Being only seventy feet away, step out the door and be on the dock in a minute or less - In two minutes be at a concrete boat launch.

Coverage and Quality are Redefined – Equipped with an attractive and highly functional hip roof, superior protection from the elements is ensured. It has one 24 foot covered slip. Not only is the aluminum decking non-slip, but it is splinter free. There is electricity for charging trolling motors.

Then, there is the Relaxation & Recreation – If after a day out you return with the sense that exploring and playing on the lake can be both fun and hard work, here is the place to reflect on the day you have had and contemplate tomorrow’s plans. Having a 12x28 swim platform complete with a retractable ladder makes this the spot to share a fun and rejuvenating break lounging, sunbathing or swimming.

A Boat Rental on the Property: Is one more convenience, and can add hours to vacation time on Kentucky Lake. There is no drive to and from a marina to collect and return a boat. For a rental over multiple days how great it is to have the driving completely eliminated. Imagine instead the pleasure of a sunrise breakfast ending seamlessly with a stroll across the lawn to board the boat that awaits you at your private dock. Effortlessly, straight from the comfort of your home, a day on the lake begins.

Why Pam & Paul chose Kentucky Lake

Having been raised on Kentucky Lake I can’t imagine life anywhere else. I don’t take for granted how fortunate I am. Now sharing all the lake offers with others is extremely rewarding for us. Hearing from first time visitors that Kentucky Lake is so much more than they imagined it would be makes having developed our properties all worth while.

After completing several projects, both commercial and residential, my interest in architecture is combined with that of assuring a great vacation.

What makes this house unique

From the ground up there’s an emphasis that comes naturally on making sure our accommodations be of a quality not found in rental homes in the area, and that the features compliment this exceptional property and location. Whether it’s a unique attribute incorporated in the structural design or a special element that creates an unexpected convenience, making it unforgettable is the priority.

With my wife Pam having had a 20 year career in the luxury hotel & resort industry she lends a professional touch. As a Director for North America & Europe she lead a talented team overseeing Sales, Marketing and PR for many of the finest accommodations in the world. Her knowledge is on a global scale from a wide array of 5-star themes. She visited renowned properties and met with clients on frequent around the world trips working in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean & Bahamas, Mexico, and numerous countries in Europe, the U.K., Asia, South East Asia, Australia, French Polynesia, and South America. She ensures a consistent commitment to the principles that keep our customers returning. Pam approaches each guest’s visit with the dedication she did as she helped cultivate standards that would exceed the expectations of dignitaries and celebrities alike.

Always the best stay! And lots of Eagles.

  • 5 of 5

Once again I spent a few days on Kentucky Lake watching the eagles fly above the lake from this amazing vacation home. I was there with my daughter and her fiancé (his first visit) and we had a wonderful stay. We toured the Land Between The Lakes and saw the most elk and bison ever. Another fabulous memory for us. We also spent a day visiting the local wineries, bought some great wines to enjoy with our dinners. The kitchen is so well equipped it lacked for nothing. Pam made sure we felt right at home and even provided us with suggestions for things to do, will return again.

A True Gem Close To Nashville

  • 5 of 5

My girlfriend and I were looking for a romantic getaway weekend and needed to stay close to Nashville. We read the great reviews of the property, and the photos seemed to show the ambiance we were looking for: a cozy spot on the lake with charm, modern amenities, and a lodge or resort cabin atmosphere. We were asking for a lot, in other words.

I called and talked to the owners, Pam and Paul. They could not have been more patient and helpful with all my questions. This was my first booking on HomeAway, and I did not know what to expect. I was a bit anxious to make and pay for the booking through the mail, including a sizable deposit, but there was absolutely no cause for it: everything went exactly as promised, and my deposit check was returned very promptly after our stay. These are very trustworthy and professional owners, and they have set the bar very high.

Anyway, we lucked out that the property was available on the fall weekend we chose as the fall colors were at their peak, and the setting of the home on the lake looking across to the unspoiled shoreline of LBL was breathtaking. The view and the setting exceeded our expectations in every way.

The home was much better even than was anticipated through the reviews and photos. The owners have a background in the hospitality industry (as do I, so I'm pretty picky), and there were very nice touches throughout-- plenty of cooking utensils, a bar area on the lower floor, plenty of towels, and a really fantastic shower.

Everything was very clean, well-kept, and worked as promised. This is a true gem of a property, just a short distance from Nashville. We are already thinking about trying to come back in the summer months. It was a wonderful stay for just the two of us, but there was plenty of room and I think even two families would have plenty of space, especially in nice weather. Don't miss the opportunity to stay here if you are looking for someplace on Kentucky Lake or if you are wanting a nice weekend getaway close to Nashville.

We loved our time at Cedar Shake!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four and were meeting another family of four with young children and found the house to be the perfect size and set-up for all of us to be comfortable and relax. We went in mid September and it was beautiful. The views are great and the house is so nice with every amenity you could ask for! One of our favorites was the main level spa-like shower! Paul and Pam were very helpful and extremely hospitable before, during and after our stay! We will definitely recommend the house to our friends and family!

Everything as written about this home is true

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed this home for a Monday thru Friday. It was so pretty with absolutely everything you could want in a lake home. We wanted for nothing except warm temps and sunshine and that can't be rented :) The owners were gracious and accommodating and answered every question prior to our visit promptly. The home was comfortable and so beautifully decorated. A spectacular view of the lake. A simply wonderful week which went by far to quickly.

Dog Lovers

  • 5 of 5

One of our dogs was diagnosed w/brain cancer 3 months ago and given 3-4 months to live. We wanted to take him and his sister on a weekend getaway, but with his condition, we couldn't plan anything far in advance. Pam was sympathetic to our situation and eager to help us in any way she could. She responded quickly to our initial inquiry, made special accommodations for us to arrive in 5 days, and sent us links to all the nearest vets in case of an emergency. Thank you Pam!

Just because we're dog lovers doesn't mean we want to stay in a place that looks or smells like an animal shelter! This home was immaculate. There was no dust, no hairs, no stains, and no lingering dog aromas.

The expansive lake views are even better than pictured on the website. Whether you're upstairs or down, the views are unparalleled!

The weather did not cooperate during our stay. The good news is the home is stocked with tons of books and more games than you could play. The bad news is the weather ruined the dogs' plans of exploring, sniffing, meeting wildlife, going on walks, and being lulled to sleep on the deck by the soothing sounds of water and the warmth of the afternoon sun. (Come to think of it, except for sniffing, we had hoped to do all of those things too.) At least we weren't at home, where my husband and I often busy ourselves w/chores instead of spending quality time together as a family.

Wonderful place

I would like to thank Pam and Paul for being very friendly. We spent the winter holiday at their house and it is a wonderful place. It is a gift to be able to wake up every morning with that incredible view.

The house is very elegant, well equipped and clean

FISHING: The fish are surely not hard to find, but for visitors with the goal of maximizing their fishing experience the owners are happy to help with finding a knowledgeable guide. We are delighted for customers to enhance their fishing time by getting out with one of the area specialists who has made it his life's passion to master and uncover this lake’s greatest features: impressive fishing opportunities, as well as a wide array of wildlife. They are at the disposal of the expert or the novice and promise anyone wishing to learn and have the mysteries of Kentucky Lake revealed a day that will long be remembered.

GOLF: In addition to the satisfaction a day on the water offers, just a 15 minute drive away is Miller Memorial Golf Course - considered to be one of the finest golf courses in west Kentucky's lakes region, it presents many challenges for even the most seasoned golfer.
