Why Jim chose Monticello
We found this little piece of paradise in 2014 and have made many precious memories with our family and friends. We thought it would make sense to allow others to spend time in our home in order to make their own memories as well.
What makes this House unique
This home was built in 1981 and offers a cozy and safe retreat from the hectic pace of everyday life. Inside the Great Room the ceiling is 25 feet high. Standing in the loft looking down is a real delight. There is a covered deck that allows you to sit outside even in the rain. The property is surrounded by many trees, however you can still see Lake Cumberland and the passing boats below the cliff line.

Great Rental (clean, comfortable, accomodating) on Lake Cumberland
We have rented vacation homes multiple times before and this was a fantastic experience. The home is extraordinarily clean, very comfortable and is supplied with everything you would want to enjoy a stay at Lake Cumberland. There were only 5 of us but 8 could have stayed very comfortably. We were concerned that the loft bedroom would be too warm (temps reached mid-90s that weekend) but there was supplemental AC (in addition to the central AC) to keep that room cool. Wireless was perfect, home had DirectTV, kitchen was fully supplied and the back deck (with lake view) and yard were outstanding. The home is located about 15 minute drive from Conley Bottom Marina and 15-20 minutes from the center of Somerset. There is also a convenient boat ramp right down the street if you are towing your own boat. The owner was very helpful before our trip and at check-in. He made sure we knew exactly where everything was and had recommendations for restaurants, etc. We plan to return next summer.
Thanks so much for the kind words Kevin. And just to be clear the Kelley family is the type of family every home owner would love to have stay in their home. Our home was left immaculate and we welcome Kevin and his family back anytime!!
July 2017 Monticello Home
We really enjoyed our stay. The view from the deck although blocked by some trees was great. We enjoyed trying to catch a glimpse of the boats as they roared by. Enjoyed the fire pit as we cooked over the open fire the first night. Spent quite a bit of time on the water and used the private boat ramp for Mystic Lane residents only. It was a little difficult to maneuver my boat around in the driveway but after a few attempts finally figured out what works. The owner met us upon arrival and was very informative and very accommodating in letting us into the home. Two things led me to rent this property number one was lakefront location and two was pet friendly. Very private place with a great view of the night sky, I recommend this if you need time away from the city or daily grind. We had poor cell phone reception (Verizon) at the home but I counted this as a plus. It has a land line if you really need it. Also the wifi worked just fine when we were looking for a restaurant.
Thanks Mike - we truly enjoyed hosting you and your family and hope you will return in the future for more R&R. We also appreciate how well you kept the home during your stay and welcome people like you anytime.
We all had a wonderful vacation!
Our family of 10 had a wonderful stay at your home. Very spacious for us all. We enjoyed a day out on the lake with a pontoon from Conley's bottom which was only about 6 miles away! IMPORTANT: During our swim in Cumberland Lake, we noticed a strong current that was pulling our kids away from the boat...please always wear the life jackets provided. Our lake scare was enough to turn our boat in early!
On another note, We bought a volleyball/badminton set & was happy the yard was spacious enough to play. We enjoyed some s'mores over the fire pit as well. We all enjoyed the ping pong table.
The pictures do not represent the true space and beauty of this home...much better in person. Very clean as well.
Thank you for opening your home to all of us!

Thanks so much for your kind words Bobbie Jo - we are thrilled that you and your family had such a wonderful time in our home and on Lake Cumberland.
We would truly appreciate hosting you and your family again in the future.
Great location and nice home
We really enjoyed our stay at your home. The location is great and our family had a wonderful time. The boat ramp is very close and easy to access. Plenty of parking. The house was the perfect size for our group of 6 adults and 4 kids. Thanks for letting us stay!!
Very friendly owner, and very nice home. The location is great and right on the lake. Had fun on the golf cart. Thank you for letting us stay.
Thanks so much Bobby - you were terrific guests and we would love to have you back again in the future. We appreciate how clean you left our home. Also we feel badly that the propane tank ran out and so we bought a spare one so that doesn't happen again in the future. If you text me your address I will send you a gift card for the inconvenience. Take care
Lake Cumberland Winery has entertainment on the weekend and a neat place to visit
