Feel the hill country of Kentucky while you are really on beautiful Lake Williamstown in this rustic, yet functional cabin that sits among the tree tops. The cottage is on a quiet gravel road providing a great setting for morning or evening walks while often catching glimpses of deer, turkey, fox and even coyote.
Williamstown lake will surprise with its size and offers 350 surface acres of water with 32 miles of shoreline and has been named 'KY's Cleanest lake.' Truly this is not a tiny lake, plenty of room to boat and swim.
You will love the comfort of the cabin. Provided is a fully equipped kitchen, with everything you need, from a coffee maker, blender, to gas grill.
The deck, with a large picnic table, and sitting chairs, stays shaded well into the evening but the dock provides plenty of sun for those working on their tan. There is a view of the water from all points on the deck.
The water is less than 60 feet from the deck, with very manageable steps. We provide your own Dock to enjoy - it is private. There is swimming right off the dock with ladder for easy access to and from the water. The public boat ramp is conveniently less than 2 minutes from the cabin.
We have a row boat, canoe, life vests and cushions for those of us that enjoy a quieter and moderate pace ~ you are welcome to use those.
Also, there is a fire ring with benches outside (with some fire wood available). For those cool off-season evenings (autumn / winter),we have a gas burning fireplace in the cabin.
Just 10 minutes from town, are restaurants, shopping, hiking trails, Fri and Sat night concerts, skateboard park, and many other attractions. For more to do in the area look at our sites on Location Map and visit the Grant County tourism website.
Or, just relax in the cabin, and enjoy the quiet and serene setting of lake and woods. This Cottage has been restored and practically updated to enjoy the sense, feel and serene nature of the lake area while not sacrificing basic amenities that makes our stay both refreshing and rejuvenating.
This is a four room cottage with 2 Bedrooms, Bathroom and a Kitchen, Dining and Living room area that makes the place cozy and rustic. Between the woodwork and the sitting areas, there is plenty of down time, if needed, that can be provided within the cottage.
People have nicknamed the place, 'Sunset Cabin,' for the perfectly situated cottage that views the beautiful Kentucky sunsets. Several of our guests have kindly forwarded pictures that they have taken (on this website) and shared their experiences in our guest book. From touring, to fishing to just relaxing this place really provides a great leisure and respite.

The cottage transferred ownership recently from another family that has been going to the lake for well over 40 years. She, along with her siblings always would visit her grandparents on the lake.
Now all these people and their respective families continue to come and stay at Williamstown Lake. They love the seasons there, the general tranquility, the water and the natural scenery that accompanies the Lake environment.
Skipper purchased this cottage in 2005
We looked high and low, East and West for a nice lake. A place where you could enjoy the surroundings, the water and a really nice cozy place to rest at the cottage.
And location was a huge bonus after researching the lakes within an hour of Lexington, Louisville and Cincinnati, it made sense to choose Williamstown.
Still close to all the big-city activities, yet quiet, wooded and still having the charm and enjoyment associated with a lake vacation.
The Lake is Very clean (it is used as a reservoir), plenty of fish - with the famous tournament, plenty of wildlife in the area, that really rejuvenates the 'batteries' and provides the much needed rest and fun that we just never make the time to enjoy in our otherwise busy lives.
The Cottage is very accessible and has all the amenities. In addition, the Oka's took the time to restore the cabin to an updated, comfortable and charming place to rest while continuing the rustic feel that a lakeside cottage should have.
This particular cove on the lake has a unique vantage point for sunsets. Also, the dock area is easily accessible and fine place to swim.
And it is in a quiet location on this lake with plenty of tree tops overhead to shade and is great.
Cottage great to hole up in ... or ...
Easy access to the dock and water!

We really enjoyed the weekend at the Sunset Cottage. I was looking for a relaxing time and found it! Took the canoe out a few times, enjoyed cooking on the gas grill and really enjoyed hanging out on the deck. The second week in May was unusually warm, so we swam in the water too. We watched an eagle, a blue Heron and lots of fish. Skip was very accommodating and the plates, good cookware and sharp knives really felt like I was at home. The movie selection was expansive and a good time was had by all. Thanks Skip!
A wonderful place to relax but so many great things to do..Everything we needed to cook...
Fishing is great..everything clean and geared for our comfort...Owner was just a call or text away if we had needed anything..We didn't...We will be back for sure..Just hope we can get in..Oh by the way...we slept with doors and windows open....It was great !!!!
My girlfriends and I have stayed at the cottage 4 out of the last 5 Labor Day weekends, and it has become our home away from home! The cottage is perfect, the bedrooms cozy and well appointed. The kitchen is fully stocked, we do all our cooking at the cottage, we never leave actually! It's great that there is a grill on the expansive deck, and there is also plenty of deck seating to enjoy the gorgeous lake view. Speaking of the lake, the dock is a great spot to soak up some rays, and the rowboat and kayak are fun to take out to explore the lake. The water is very deep off the dock, with no place to touch bottom, so life jackets for swimmers are a good idea. There are many floaty toys under the cottage to enjoy as well. The only suggestion I would make is wifi, but I have to admit it's kind of nice to unplug for the weekend. Skip is so easy to work with and very accommodating, this is truly a wonderful property, and we can't wait to return every year!
It was a great, quiet cottage to stay in. Had everything we needed. Fished everyday and enjoyed traveling to the sites around the area.
The cottage was very thoughtfully stocked with a nice view and quiet surroundings. We quite enjoyed swimming, taking the row boat out for a spin, and eating breakfast out on the deck. Thanks for a great stay!
Quiet road for morning walks. Canoe and row boat available.
Plenty of night festivities on the weekends too at the local theater and listen / watch Country or Blue Grass music.
There are wineries, museums, scenic drives, pro-ball games, horse racing, car racing and all sorts of things to do in the area.
Or go to local dock for sandwich or pizza at marina dock.
OR, simply relax and spend nice quiet evenings at your lake vacation cottage.
