WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
We enjoyed this house with our children and 4 small grandchildren. The house was clean and spacious and just what we were hoping for. We enjoyed the shady back yard, the beautiful lake, the great back porch, and the awesome quiet master bedroom for grandma and grandpa. The owners were truly a pleasure to deal with.

VERY NICE HOME

  • 5 of 5
Our family of 2 adults, two 20 yo's, a 15 yo, 13 yo, 11 yo, 5 month old, & our dog thoroughly enjoyed our week stay at Bay House. The house was very nice, spacious, comfortable, & clean. The master suite is wonderful! The kitchen has everything you need to prepare meals. The ice maker in the frig was a bonus!

We had fun fishing on the dock & sitting out on the deck. We had bonfires & made S'mores for dessert. The kids enjoyed the beach at the state park nearby. Cadiz is a cute little town with plenty of antique stores. The kids had lunch at the House of Spice for their 1st ever Indian food.

We were in the area for a family reunion, so for a few days we weren't at the house much. We had plans to tour the area a little more, but everyone was more than happy to enjoy the house & grounds for the last few days of our stay.

Thank you to the Townsend's for your hospitality & commitment to making our stay an enjoyable one. The kids all want to know when we're going back!

OUTSIDE NOT GOOD

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am so sorry your boat was damaged but you did not notify me. I showed you how to use the boat lift. Twice, I offered to help you launch your boat and put it on the lift and you declined my help. Prior to your visit, two groups of fishermen used the boat lift with out any difficulty. I called you during your stay and you indicated everything was satisfactory.

The yard is rustic. With so many trees, there will be twigs, acorns and gum balls. You rented in 1st week of May. It was so early the grass did not need to be mowed. It has since been completed. We do have occasional wood boring bees because the home has wood siding. These bees do not sting or cause any problems except make holes in the siding.

AN AWESOME SPRING BREAK!

  • 5 of 5
Our group of 8 plus Tyson the Boxer had a wonderful time. The home is beautiful, and the property is even better. Meeting Gary in person was the topper. He is, without a doubt, the nicest and most accommodating owner I have ever met.

Don't miss the beautiful stars and a fire at night. Take a long drive through the Land Between the Lakes. Enjoy the fishing and then come back to the house to cook a wonderful meal and enjoy it all together at the huge dining table. Although there are TVs all over the house, we forgot to watch because we were so busy enjoying the waterfront and each others company. I will admit we used the WiFi, and it worked wonderfully.

Wait until you see the beautiful master bedroom and bathroom with the Jacuzzi tub! Absolutely wonderful.

Thank you Gary for a wonderful vacation. Take care and God Bless you and your family.

EARLY FALL STAY

  • 4 of 5
2 couples stayed here in early October; Gary (the owner) couldn't be any nicer. We used the king and queen bedrooms; both beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well-stocked; we made pancakes for breakfast one morning and cooked 2 different evening meals too. The photos of the house are very accurate and the place was very clean. We ate one meal at the state park lodge restaurant; the view of Lake Barkley is stunning. We also ate at Timbers Steakhouse; the food and service were great as were the desserts-I had the pecan cobbler and it was delicious . We walked around the neighborhood one evening after supper; the area was very quiet during our stay. Gary was very responsive to a few minor issues that came up and we were very appreciative. One thing we did not like was not having a door between the bedroom and bath in the king suite; same with the queen, but that is the way the house was built. Plenty of room for parking multiple vehicles; we kept one in the garage during our stay and used the other for sightseeing. We drove up The Trace one day to Grand Rivers and had lunch at Patti's 1880's restaurant; they are known for the 2 inch pork chop as well as having fabulous desserts. Another day we hit Cadiz and browsed the various antique shops and had lunch at Reva's on Main Street. We also drove to Princeton and toured the Adsmore House and Gardens; the place is a real treasure trove with the antique furniture and clothing that belonged to the family that lived there. We shopped at Newsome's Old Mill store and had a picnic lunch at the Big Spring park which is behind Newsome's. We enjoyed our stay at Bay House and would come back here again; Gary is a caring and responsive owner.
