Herrington Lake House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 2 1/2 Bath, Sleeps 9-13, Close to Hiking, Crafts, and Berea College

The home features passive solar design with windows spanning the entire south side of the home with loads of natural light. The open floor plan includes two loft bedrooms that overlook the living and family rooms and is just loaded with nooks and crannies. If you are looking for a unique place to stay, with beautiful views, close to hiking and outdoor activities, and within a short drive to lots of central Kentucky destinations, this is it!

We are the daughters of Richard Martin, a green designer/builder in the Berea area for more than 30 years who had a reputation for building high quality energy efficient homes.

The 'Big Hill' house was the first house that Daddy ever built and our childhood home. Given the unique features of the house and the obvious sentimental value of the home, we have decided to hold on to the house as a vacation home for our extended family and and have recently completed a series of renovations to the house so we are excited to share it with you!

Charming weekend getaway with women friends.

I just stayed here for a weekend getaway with friends. It was such a quaint, charming, clean and comfortable place to stay. It had many windows that allowed us to see the beautiful mountain view from many places in the home. I definitely plan to return in the spring, summer or fall and enjoy all the hiking and outdoor adventures in the area.

The house is located just outside of Berea. Known as the 'Arts and Crafts' capital of Kentucky, Berea is home to a thriving population of weavers, instrument makers, furniture artisans, jewelry designers, glass workers, potters, painters, sculptors, and musicians. The story of Berea’s artisan community is interwoven with the historic Berea College, the first interracial and coeducational college in the South. Berea has a long-standing tradition of diversity, social justice, environmental responsibility, and community service. Both college and town are committed to the practice of sustainability and conservation.

Berea College owns and maintains over 8,000 acres of forest, including numerous hiking trails within a few miles of the house.

Berea is located in central Kentucky, 40 miles south of Lexington, on the border of the Cumberland Plateau in the foothills of Kentucky's Appalachian mountains. Berea is located in the southern end of Madison County, which is one of the fastest growing areas in Kentucky. It is rich in heritage and history. The County is unique in that it has two townships, Berea, and the larger, Richmond, just 12 miles to the north. The County sits next to Fayette County with the Kentucky River as its border. The northern end of the county just is minutes away from Lexington.
