Why Hugh McQuillan chose Kentucky

In 2005, we planned a multi-family vacation at Haddix Point Hideaway through then owners, George & Sharon Haddix. Had so much fun, we came back the following two summers. When George and Sharon decided to sell, they offered it to us because they knew how much we loved the property. We hated to think that, if someone else bought it, they may not rent it out and we'd lose out on our favorite vacation spot! Well, with a lot of luck and some help along the way we were able to swing the purchase. We are happy to be able to share this house with so many families that return each year.

Has the Feel of a Treasured Family Cabin

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was lovely and we really enjoyed our stay! It made for the

perfect birthday memory for our daughter. One of our favorite things about it was the view from the point where we watched wildlife, fishermen and pleasure boaters enjoying the lake. When we didn't feel like grilling out, we had a fabulous lunch at Shaker Village's Trustees Table just down the road.

Relaxing Peaceful Home on Majestic Lake Herrington

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic time at Haddix Point Hideaway June 24-29th. We comfortably slept 9 adults and 3 children. Lake Herrington is very large and we were so impressed with the serenity of it as well as the enjoyment of watching all the people having a great time boating on it. The view is amazing and the yard is large enough to have a sense of privacy from the neighbors. We were able to play corn hole, roast marshmallows at the fire pit, and grill all of our meals on the gas grill that was on site. We loved having use of the private dock to swim, fish, paddle board, SUP and dock the pontoon we rented from Herrington Marina for the best rate we have ever seen for water sports rentals. A private boat launch also came in handy to enter jet skis. The house was immaculately clean and had everything you could possibly need. We loved that we did not have to lug linens, pillows, blankets and towels for such a large group! We set up the added extra table and chairs in the sunroom for extra seating and games. If we had been prepared we would have used the washer and dryer that were provided! Thanks Megan and Hugh for a wonderful place to spend with our 4 generations of family.

Great base for our Bourbon/Chocolate Tour

  • 5 of 5

The perfect woodsy get-away!! We had plenty of room for 6 adults on the 1st floor with the large kitchen, bedrooms, bathroom, family room, and covered deck overlooking a beautiful piece of property. Two more bedrooms upstairs could easily accommodate 4 more. The travel time between the distilleries and home base was easier than anticipated giving us time to enjoy nightly camp fires. Eating dinner by headlamp on the bluff was so much fun. Between 8:30 am and 4:30 pm we drove 100 + miles to visit about 5 places per day. Our total travel time per day was about 2+ hours. Over the five day period we visited 14 distilleries, toured the Oskar-Getz museum in Bardstown, the barrel factory in Lebanon, the KY Chocolate factory in Lexington, the convent/artist studio in Nerinx, and the Shaker Village. We also threw in some great restaurants and home cooked meals.

Thanks for providing us such a great place to stay.

A very cute and clean place. Amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

The owner is very helpful and there are many other people around to help you with anything you may need. The place was very clean and spacious. It had the most amazing views. Waking up and seeing the lake was wonderful. I recommend this for any event.

Hidden Gem... Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

This was a great place; the property might be the best on the entire lake. This has a boat launch, a dock and the best rock point for fire's I have ever seen.

Will be coming back.
