Overview

Monticello House Rental Photos and Description

4 Bedrooms, 2 Baths (Sleeps 8) with Seasonal views of Lake Cumberland.

USA TODAY published an article noting the "Top 10 Lakeside Cottages You Can Rent" [July 2013]. Serenity Ridge Cottage was one of them!

Serene, tranquil, relaxing, and cozy is how our guests describe the feeling they get the minute they walk through the door! Our charming cottage guarantees that you will come away refreshed following your stay and wishing you didn’t have to leave!

This spacious, 3-level cottage boasts a seasonal lake view from its secluded, wooded lot. Native cedar/beaded board walls and hardwood flooring create a feeling of coziness and warmth. The screened porch is just the spot for relaxing your cares away! Wonderfully comfortable beds assure you will wake up refreshed. And, the cook in your group will absolutely love the adorable, chef-friendly kitchen equipped with every imaginable gadget and all the basic spices. Get out on the lake with your boat (put-in at Conley Bottom Marina or Point Road - both a 5 min drive) or rent a pontoon from Conley Bottom. The water is invitingly crystal clear! Good fishing too!

After your day on Lake Cumberland, gather around a fire you've built in the outdoor fire pit or snuggle in for a movie selected from our DVD library on the flat screen TV, a game of cards or a good book from our collection. Or, you can enjoy the recreational facilities of Golden Pond Resort which include: swimming pool, tennis / basketball court, a sand volleyball pit, corn hole pit, horseshoes, a gazebo with grills for picnics and a play area for the little ones.

This home is FULLY EQUIPPED, including linens, and is ready for your enjoyment! You need only bring your food and paper products. Alcoholic beverages can be purchased in Somerset [20 mins away] since Serenity Ridge sits in a dry county.

A few things to know...BEDROOM LAYOUT is a king on first level; full and x-long twin bunk bedrooms on second level; queen on lower level. The SCREENED PORCH offers cushioned, wicker furniture for relaxing with table/chairs for outdoor dining. The DECK on the front of the house is furnished and is a nice, open-air gathering spot. The LAKE VIEW is seasonal and overlooks Conley Bottom Marina through a wooded area. CELL PHONE signal easily attained for major providers and there is broadband WIRELESS INTERNET on the property. Our goal is to keep our home SMOKE-FREE; the screened porch and deck offer a relaxing place to smoke. Unfortunately, WE DO NOT ALLOW PETS in order to keep our hardwood flooring scratch-free and to ensure an ALLERGY-FREE environment for all guests. Serenity Ridge is KID-FRIENDLY. We provide 2 child gates for you to block off stairways for the safety of your little ones and a toddler chair to pull up to the dining table.

About Kari & Vince Wardell, Owners

Kari & Vince live in WV, have been married for over 25 years and have 2 grown boys. Vince is a Sales Manager in the television industry. Kari is...well...a sales person / merchandiser / renovator. She spent 7 months in Kentucky during the renovation of Serenity Ridge and made our vision come to life! We enjoy getting to our lake cottage whenever we can. In September of 2014, we hosted our oldest sons wedding at Serenity Ridge and finally got to share it with all our friends and family. What a beautiful time that was! And through the years, we've had the pleasure of sharing Serenity Ridge with many wonderful families that come together there! Enjoy!

Why Kari & Vince Wardell, Owners chose Monticello

Vince has always wanted a "little getaway place". So he began his online search at Lake Cumberland, where we spent many wonderful vacations with our best friends. And, voila! He found it! We couldn't be happier to consider ourselves residents of Monticello and Lake Cumberland!

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with the setting! Serenity Ridge is so close to the lake and while summer is great, it is absolutely spectacular in the Fall with all the trees, trees and more trees! We also loved the idea that it was within a small community and that there is a recreational area for our guests use. The house itself needed a total over-haul and a lot of love! But all of our blood, sweat and tears has made it totally worth it! It will be our family's special place for years to come. All it needs now is the pitter-pat of tiny, grand-baby feet!

Guestbook comments from the manager

Dear Wardell Family -- We enjoyed our stay at your cottage. It was very relaxing. The cottagey touches bring back memories of times when life was simpler. We look forward to returning.

Took the family here for Thanksgiving and we all had a great time . The property was clean and well furnished from the kitchen to the video files on hand .
