About Scott & Judy Bryson

We have owned and operated this property since 2002. We have had many quests over the years and look forward to more in the future. We are pleased to offer this property and hope you will enjoy it also as much as we have over the years.

Scott & Judy Bryson purchased this cabin in 2002

Why Scott & Judy Bryson chose Barren River Lake

This property offers not only a quiet setting and beautiful views of the lake and surrounding areas, but is within easy access of water, hiking trails, boat ramp, and local amenities.

What makes this cabin unique

Many fishermen have enjoyed fishing tournaments and even fishing from the bank. They state that the location and lake access is primary. We as owners personally like it because of location, location, location.

exactly what we ask for

  • 5 of 5

i just came home from a 3 night stay in windy cove. it was myself and 3 more wanna be fishermen. The fishing wasnt great but the cabin was .It was everything that scott said it was.It was so quit and peaceful. the real big screened porch was a extra bonus.If you sit out there and over look the lake with a cup of coffee in your hand, you will understand. I fish Barren 3 times a year, and i will use this place everytime.

Nice cabin

  • 5 of 5

We stayed stayed in this cabin (family of 5) for a couple of days to enjoy an early spring south of us. We went fishing, enjoyed the scenery, and Mammoth cave. The view from the cabin of the lake is beautiful. The cabin was clean and the owners were very friendly and helpful.

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for peace & quiet and a beautiful cabin on the lake, look no further. Windy Cove is the best! My husband (age66) and myself (age58) take 4 or 5 "mini vacations" every summer. We rent from private owners and this place by far beats every place we have ever been. We spent our days on our pontoon and are evenings grilling out and then retired to the screened in deck and took in the beautiful view of the lake along with enjoying all the "night critters" chirping!

There is no dock for your boat, but plenty of trees to tie up to like we did

I just can't put into words how nice Windy Cove is, but trust me you fall in love with this cabin & surroundings. The owner met us there and he was so nice and helpful showing us around. Only two suggestions- a new set of steak knives and perhaps if possible to weed eat the path to make it a little wider.

Thank you Scott & Judy for giving us the best trip ever! We look forward to seeing you next year (if we can wait that long!)

Solitude on the Lake

  • 5 of 5

We checked in for Memorial Day Weekend, my husband and I. This was my 2nd stay at the cabin, for my daughter and her friend and I stayed there for a weekend last July. Everything you need you will find at Windy Cove. It is clean, and decorated very cute. We used the grill nightly, and loved the screened in deck overlooking the lake. The only suggestion I would have would be to make the steps off the back porch wider. They are SO narrow and it makes you feel as if you are going to fall carrying things in and out. Other than that. we loved it and will stay again and again.

Owner's Response: Hello Bobbie We are going to change the back step the reason it was like that was to keep boat trailers from running over it that is also way we have the ramp at the end this works well for all . We will try to improve the entrance asap Thank You or you input we always enjoy all comments and Hope to see you again soon Thank You Scott & Judy

Great Get-a-way

  • 5 of 5

My business partner and I wanted to escape the office for 2 days to focus on one particular case. I found this cabin and booked it. The owners were extremely nice and easy to work with. The place was clean upon arrival. The space is much larger than it looks from the outside and the amenities are great for a lake house. We used the grill both days, baked in the oven, and kept a fire burning throughout our stay. Wood was provided by the owners.

The screened-in portion of the deck faces the water and was very enjoyable. If you are looking for a nice place to stay at the lake, look no further. This would be appropriate from everything from a family trip to just a couples trip. Very reasonable rates and great location!

P.S. In case the owner is reading this, the coffee pot has a crack in the bottom and was cracked when we arrived. :)
