Some the the unique benefits that I enjoy while staying at my property are: onsite washer & dryer, ample parking for RV or boat trailer, waterfront access with covered dock with 2 boat slips.
We rode our Harleys to the little A frame on Barkley Lake for Labor Day Weekend. Although it was in a neighborhood, and at the end of a cul de sac, it felt very private. The house sits on top a rocky cliff and has 2 deck landings and over 100 steps down to reach the lake for fishing! We loved it, but it wouldn't be feasible for some. The cabin needs some maintenance, but all in all it was comfortable and clean. The description says it sleeps 6, but 2 of those are obviously children, because the second bedroom has tiny bunk beds. We slept in the queen bed in the loft that was very comfortable, and the second couple slept on the queen sofa sleeper, which was pretty wirey. The air conditioner does not cool the whole cabin well, but there are 2 fans that help. There's even a washer/dryer unit for doing your laundry. Everything you need is there! And we would stay again!
We had 4 adults at the A frame over a long weekend and had a great time. We fished, went to the flea market, read a book, ate Mexican in Cadiz and lunch at Barkley Lodge on Sunday, just had a relaxing time. We had a few "issues" with the cabin itself and the location. The A frame sits on a hill, so the long trek down to the boat dock and back up the hill was a bit much for 65+ aged adults. For young people, it would be a work out but perfectly doable. The description advertises two slips in the boat dock but there was a pontoon in one side so we actually had access to only one. That was fine since we only brought one boat, but we had discussed bringing TWO boats. The sleeping arrangements left some to be desired. It does have a comfortable full size bed in the loft but the second bedroom has bunk beds that could use a good mattress and the sleep sofa left some to be desired. Had we known, an inflatable mattress would have been great on the living room floor. There is a deck that wraps around the house plus another seating area down the hill a bit, where the fire pit is. We sat on the deck and drank coffee while enjoying the wildlife. The "yard" is made of large stones but no grass. Kids would love climbing on the rocks!! The cabin is surrounded by tall trees and we sat one the deck and watched the squirrels scamper around from limb to limb, eating the nuts. There were plenty of squirrels to keep us entertained and they put on quite a show for us! The kitchen has about everything you'll need but it is VERY small.( Not to give anyone the impression that we COOKED! ) There was a grill on the deck and even 1/2 a bag of charcoal and some starter fluid. We were able to use the tap water to make our coffee, which was a real plus. We are a bit picky about our coffee water, but it was fine both to drink and to make coffee. The weather was really hot all weekend and the air conditioner is a too small to cool the entire building, so we were comfortable in the living room but the bedrooms were a bit warm. But it was so nice to have a place to come in, relax and refuel before going back out to fish in the evening! The entire building could use a good cleaning and a little work to bring it up to date would be a big boost. It does have a few "aging issues". Everything considered, for "young" people or a family with young kids, it is almost perfect and a real bargain. But it's not made for "older" people like us.
The cabin had maintenance issues such as rotting boards on the deck which could become a safety problem. . Also the cabin was not clean. There was a great view of the lake that we enjoyed. I would not recommend this cabin.
We had an incredible time at the A-Frame! We fished the whole weekend and caught plenty of catfish and crappie😉 Even though it rained all weekend the view was still amazing!! We got engaged while we were there. For that, we will never forget the A-Frame on the lake:) the only con was the 5 flights of stairs up and down to get to the dock. If I lived there I would have killer legs...what a workout!
Great cozy, quiet place all at a bargain price. Perfect for family with one, two or maaaaybe three pre-teen/adolescent kids. Maybe not ideal for people with toddlers. Here's why: Good workout going up and down stairs to the dock. The climb up and down the stairs was worth it. Fishing was a blast. Only minor complaint: 11 days to get deposit back. Even so, a comfortable, peaceful bargain of a getaway.
