Overview

About the property

"EASE ON THE LAKE" IS NO LONGER AVAILABLE FOR RENT.

This property is owned by Murray Chi Alpha, a campus ministry at nearby Murray State University. Time at the property is enjoyed by its students, staff and financial donors.

This 2800 square-foot house is situated with a fantastic view on enormous Kentucky Lake (which has more shoreline than Lake Superior). An absolute fisherman's paradise, Kentucky Lake is known as some of the best crappie fishing in the world, Just last summer several big largemouth bass and a 10-pound catfish were caught straight off the dock.

The house has four bedrooms, each with a lake view - two upstairs and two downstairs. New beautiful wood floors upstairs and both bathrooms upstairs are completely renovated and beautiful. The upper bedrooms each have a bathroom and each have a king size bed. The newly renovated Washington suite is awesome. Downstairs there is one bathroom next to the bedroom with a queen size bed. The other room has bunk beds and another single - perfect for the kids. Pets and/or smoking are NOT allowed. NO exceptions!

The large living room upstairs has a gas-log fireplace, a large surrounding balcony and a stunning view. The upstairs and downstairs both have a large living area (fantastic lake view) with leather furniture. Downstairs includes a sauna along with a full-size desk for the workaholic. Other amenities include a large private swimming pool (30x20), foosball table, Bose music system.

PEACEFUL & QUIET! This property is situated only three miles from Miller Memorial Golf Course, which has been ranked among the top designed public courses in the nation by Golf Digest. Green fees are only $15!

Wonderful view and Beautiful Upgrades

  • 5 of 5

I was very impressed as soon as I walked through the door. I had stayed at the house in years past and remembered some of its dated features. But the most recent renovations are spectacular. The upstairs living room has beautiful hardwood floors and great leather furniture. The kitchen looks very sharp now too with brand new appliances and new granite counter tops. All rental homes say the the kitchen is fully stocked, but this one really is. My wife and I stayed in the new Washington Suite which was definitely first class. Every detail in both the bedroom and bathroom was excellent. Most of our time was spent in the upstairs and every bit of the furnishings have a high quality feel, something I greatly care about in a rental property. The view and lake access was as good as ever. We appreciated the effort Mark (the owner) put into giving us a very clean and well done house. You will not be disappointed.

Owner's Response: It is always great to have people return, and it is a delight to have you and your wife as guests. My favorite room is the Washington Suite also. I continue to spend thousands of dollars every year to make this the best property available. My goal is to make this a 6 star vacation experience for everyone!!!!!!!!!!

house was excelent pool was terrible and no power to the dock

  • 3 of 5

to all fishermen red flag this one no power to dock, when i called about it i received a text telling me that power was a hit or mis and did we have extension cords we each only had

100' of cord, not even close to enough had to go back to town and buy another 200' to make it work. To guys going out there to fish don't stay at this one house is nice but for a rental that has a manager in the college near by no effort was really made to help the situation won't be going back

Excellant!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful stay. They spent the days kayaking and fishing. The house is right on the lake. It has easy access for launching boats. The house is very comfortable and clean. With four bedrooms, there is plenty of room for everyone. We had 7 adults and 1 child. We couldn't have had a better time. Thank you from the Zimmerman family.

A peaceful and cozy home

  • 4 of 5

Almost everything was perfect! There were a few perishables left in the fridge which made me question the cleanliness, but the rest of the home was beautiful! We stayed a little off season, but the outside wasn't maintained as well as I'd expected. It felt a little forgotten. The biggest downfall was the hot tub. That was one of the major attractions for us, but it was filthy. We thought we could tough it out, but got out after about 5 minutes and everyone immediately showered. Instructions for the fire place and the WiFi password would have been lovely, but we figured it out. All in all I'd go back immediately, but I wish we could have enjoyed the hot tub. For the price of the cabin, I would have expected it to be usable. The location is perfection, even in the rain it was absolutely beautiful.

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

Stayed for a few days with my family. Had a great time at this house. Beautiful and scenic. House is spacious and clean. We love like to stay again when it's warm outside so that we can take advantage of water sports and the pool.
