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.

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.

Swell cottage on the lake

  • 5 of 5

I decided I wanted to do a weekend at the lake for my birthday, and sure picked a great house! This is a rather nice sized lake close to Cincinnati, and without the constant speed nuts racing around making waves for the small boats. We rented a pontoon from the marina (I will say, the rental boat was somewhat disappointing, but I suppose they don't want people to have too much fun), and it was very nice to have it dropped off right at the dock. The house was a great size for our group of 9 adults. Even with only a single bathroom we didn't have any long lines. It rained the first night, and we enjoyed sitting on the porch watching the storms. Kitchen was well stocked. Only thing that I would suggest is a larger fridge, as we had to leave some stuff in our coolers. Wasn't bad for a weekend, but a longer stay would have gotten annoying. Fire pit was in a great location, awesome views of the lake and stars at night. I would stay here again for sure!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review John, and I am glad you mentioned the fridge. During our families week long stay earlier this summer we thought the exact same thing. Upgrading the refrigerator before next season is, for sure one of the items we will address. Glad you enjoyed your stay.

Wonderful Wedding

  • 5 of 5

We rented this property for our outdoor wedding overlooking the lake. Our guests stayed in the house. They absolutely fell in love with it. The back yard over looks the lake, perfect back drop for a small outdoor wedding. The house has a warm and welcoming feeling. It has everything you need to relax on the lake. This is a wonderful get away!
