Overview

About the property

Great place to get away from it all.

This unit is located near the Wood Creek Boat dock. (Wood Creek Lake is a small lake in Laurel County, KY; there is no high speed boating, skiing, tubing or jet skiing)

It is at the end of Boulder Drive so there is almost no traffic.

The driveway is right behind the unit and is level with the road. Cliff walls and boulders surround much of the property for unsurpassed natural beauty.

You have lake views from the front of the unit with steps going down to the lake to the private boat dock.

Relax on the porch that faces the lake and watch the fishermen go by. There is a table and chairs out there as well where one can enjoy a cup of coffee or a nice lunch or dinner.

There are plenty of pots and pans in the kitchen so that you can prepare your meals but if you want to travel to London it is only a short drive away. There are also kayaks available for your use.

Come spend a weekend, a week or a month in this secluded lake front paradise.

About Philip Gilkison

I sell real estate in Laurel County Kentucky and live only about 15 minutes from this lake home. I worked as a nursing home administrator for 27 years. I loved working with the elderly and miss it but it was time for a change. Part of my real estate business is renting this unit and two condos in Cocoa Beach, Florida. They can also be found on VRBO. VRBO.com/396215 and VRBO.com/479209

Philip Gilkison purchased this mobile home in 2017

Why Philip Gilkison chose London

The great little home overlooks beautiful Wood Creek Lake. It is at the end of the street so there is very little traffic. It is near our home so that we can enjoy it any time that our guests are not.

Nice little property, steep stairs to dock

  • 4 of 5

I recently reserved this property for a girls weekend away. It was a little worn, some of the stairs/deck were wobbly, but it was clean which is a big deal for me. Check in & check out were easy and it was nice to have the deck area to sit out in. The stairs down to the dock are very steep and more than a little wobbly so if you have mobility issues this might not be a good choice. But once you get down the dock it is a beautiful place to sit and we really enjoyed the kayaks. The little lake is very pleasant and mostly quiet. The drive getting to the property is steep and turning, but I found it to be an invigorating walk-you just have to watch for cars. We saw a lot of wildlife and there was good star viewing at night. The owner was very easy to work with-Thanks!

Very clean, gorgeous views

  • 5 of 5

It was a long walk up and down the stairs, but it's worth it. We brought our kayaks and quickly realized we needed a marina. Luckily there was one 2 minutes away. Could not have been more perfect! Thanks for a great stay!

Continently remote

  • 4 of 5

Clean and well maintained. Some small items need attention or replacement. Toaster and hair dryer come to mind. Although the owners have made every effort to provide Internet and tv service they were honest about the challenges. If a recommendation my be made, it would be that the entry code be sent with a requested conformation on the part of the renter, otherwise although sent but not received present challenges.

Owner's Response: We live close by and go down there to clean or to check things out and find it so peaceful and inviting that we stay for hours just sitting around enjoying the solitude. I love the place.

Secluded getaway

  • 4 of 5

The weather was strangely cold and drizzly for early September, but the good news about that was that our little group was forced to do pretty much nothing – and I can't imagine a better place to do that!

The birds singing and big fish jumping in the lake made for great sound effects, and the covered porch and cozy interior of the home helped create wonderful hours or relaxation and peaceful moments.

The proximity to amenities in London was nice, and the drive on the narrow, curvy lane to the house was captivating.

Be advised the wi-fi is fair at best, and the satellite TV service might not work at all (it didn't for us, but that might have been due to the cloud cover), but there is a DVD player and we enjoyed using it at night. And the long and steep stairway to the lake isn't manageable for physically challenged people (we had two who decided to pass on it), but for those who can handle it, it's AWESOME at the dock on the bottom. If you wet a fishing line, you'll surely catch sunfish if nothing else.

Overall, though, if you just want to hang out in the forest in eastern Kentucky – and maybe fish and rent a boat if the weather's right – you won't be disappointed. And make sure to see Cumberland Falls!
