About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 10)

This is a spectacular upscale 3 bedroom, 2 bath waterfront home located directly on Little River off of Lake Barkley in Cadiz, Kentucky. New upgrades and professionally decorated for guests. It offers all the amenities and spectacular views to provide your family with a great vacation! PLEASE SEE OUR CALENDAR BELOW FOR AVAILABLE DATES. During Peak Season (summer) we typically rent by the week, however, there are exceptions depending on other bookings.

This Luxury LakeHouse waterfront vacation home includes a large wrap around deck off the main level with Trex decking and outdoor speakers. The large lower level Trex deck leads to your own private covered boat dock with an 18’x12’ sun deck with an amazingly beautiful sunset view.

Fully furnished kitchen with granite counter tops, and stainless steel appliances. Two downstairs private guest suites- each with king beds, and an upstairs bedroom off of the loft with 2 queen beds (there are 2 twin beds in the loft area for additional sleeping). Two full baths with showers (one upstairs and one downstairs).

Wood floors throughout the home is another upgrade that has been included in this luxury lake house. One of our favorite features is the original 22-foot A-frame pine ceiling and brick fireplace within the center of the family room. A 37-inch LCD flat screen with cable television, dvd player, ipod port and wifi highspeed internet is provided.

The Luxury Lakehouse is located at the end of a private cul-de-sac with an unobstructed view of the lake. With over 2,000 square feet of living space, everything is in place to provide you with a wonderful vacation. The home has been recently updated, and you are welcome to enjoy the new outdoor gas grill and high efficiency washer/dryer. Please be sure to pack your toiletries, laundry detergent (HE), and outdoor towels (we provide towels for showering) along with your luggage to save yourself a trip to the store!

This Luxury Lakehouse is located in the heart of Cadiz, close to antique shopping, restaurants, grocery stores, and endless recreational activities including golf, boating, fishing and state parks. The home is waterfront, just a few steps away from your private 25ft covered boat slip and 18ft x 12ft sundeck. We have a steep lot which allows for year round water; gentle sloping lots often do not have water except in June-August.

LOCATION: Google map Cherry Bay Road, Cadiz, KY 42211 for location. Public boat ramp ~ 1/4 mile from house and literally right across the water from our dock. Also, see map below, if link is working. If you reserve with us, once I receive the rental check, I send detailed directions to our place which will bring you past the grocery, gas stations, and the town of Cadiz. Your GPS might have a ''shorter' route, but I have found that it rarely is faster or easier than the directions I will send to you.

LOGISTICS: If interested, please look at the calendar link, located on this page. It is up to date with reservations. If your desired dates are available, please send me an email. I will get back to you as soon as I can. We require the deposit plus the full rental amount, cleaning fee and taxes with the signed agreement (which I will send to you via email). We will deposit that check. Once received, we will send you the access PIN code and directions. After your stay, if the house is left in good condition as expected, we will send back the deposit to you. Typically, this is sent back to you about 2 weeks after your stay.

Reservations are placed upon receipt of your check and signed rental agreement. They are marked tentative until that time and are not visible on the website calendar. It is first come first serve- so, if someone has a tentative reservation and has not sent us the signed agreement and check, those dates are still available to someone who does send us a singed agreement and deposit.

CHECK-IN/CHECK-OUT: Check in is at 4pm on the day of arrival. This allows our cleaning person to have the house ready for you. Check out is at 10am, allowing enough time for cleaning, washing and changing linens, etc to prepare for the next guest.


***Sorry, we do not allow any pets. We have been burned on this in the past and are firm on this.

***The other thing I always tell people is that we are on a steep grade and if people have any issues with mobility and getting around, getting down to the dock could be difficult and there are ~8 stairs to get into the house form the driveway.

***Boat trailer parking is allowed in the cul-de-sac as long as you give plenty of room for the neighbor go get to their place. The other option is to leave it in the lot at the public boat ramp- right across from our dock. If you have multiple trailers/boats, they will need to be in the public lot.

Fun stay but needs a little work on the outside, especially $ put into path to the dock

  • 4 of 5

overall, my family and i had a nice week fishing, swimming and doing the lake thing and unwinding. i do a fair amount of travel so my experience on something i'm paying for being 'clean' is just expected. the inside was clean which is important but the outside of the property is needing attention. mold growing on the outside of the house, leaves, sticks, grass built up in corners, and the deck outside is bowing up in places on the floor. most importantly, the path from the house down to the dock is very treacherous, especially for older folks. I'd recommend some investment into a permanent deck/path with a hand rail and low level led lights to see where you're stepping and have something a person that needs it can hang on to going up/down the path. something similar to the house next door. currently the path has roots washed up all up and down the path which create another trip hazard all in itself. it rained hard one day which made it pretty dicey to get up it for my mom and dad so my brother and i walked behind them to help them up each time they went up. the fire pit area is also mess with bricks and rocks strung out and thrown around with a make shift bench of rock pillars and a 2x6 board bowed in the middle as it has no middle support. it reminds me of my days of camping out in the middle of nowhere along the river bottoms, not something i paid $2k to stay at.

As for the inside, it was clean and had everything needed/expected from a VRBO. I would say that the king size beds in the two bedrooms are pretty firm with little padding and there's a plastic cover over the mattress or something which 'crinkles' with every move. I feel like i'm sleeping on a toddlers mattress. The frame system has no headboard and the feet are rollers; with the bed on a laminate floor, it moves around constantly so every time you sit down on it, the bed moves. in short, those beds are low end. i'd suggest removing the rollers and installing feet, add a headboard to make it more homey and get rid of the plastic filmed mattress.

Again, we had a nice visit on the lake but these comments are meant to inform other clients on what can be expected at the house as of the time of our stay 7/25-17-7/30/17. Dave was fairly responsive (i wouldn't say he was fast to respond) but he did reach out to let us know the AC was not working before we came and he did a great job getting it up and running before we arrived which, although is expected, i still appreciated.

Awesome week!

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great week! This house was perfect for our multigenerational family of 7. Beautiful sunsets every night. Great water access. We brought kayaks and rented a pontoon boat one day.

It truly had everything we needed--just had to bring food! Kitchen and linens were well-stocked. There was also a lot to do in the area at the Land Between the Lakes. We visited the elk & bison prairie, saw the animals close up at the nature center, and saw a laser show at the planetarium! We did a visit to Patti's 1880's Settlement for some wonderful food --the famous pork chops, flowerpot bread, and pie with mile-high merengue. We had lunch one day at The Fishing Hole and finished it off with their delicious ice cream. There's still a lot we didn't get to, so I guess that will be for our next visit!

Great lakehouse experience

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lakehouse for a late August trip in 2016 and were very happy with our stay. We brought a family gathering of five adults and two teenagers and had plenty of room and entertainment for all. The closest town has everything you could need, from multiple grocery stores to several eateries and a number of fast food options.

The lakehouse is decorated tastefully and furnished comfortably, with a great view of the water and a pleasant skyline. The beds are reasonably comfortable and quite large, considering there are six of them. Kitchen is well-equipped, with plenty of room for two or three cooks at a time. TV works flawlessly and content provided is cable based. Wifi works well downstairs, decent in upstairs loft, but doesn't reach well into upstairs bedroom (non-existent if door was closed). Air conditioning is excellent and fans/lighting have upscale controls and function perfectly.

The boathouse/swim platform was the star of our stay. It is well kept and in very good condition. We spent seven days at the property and most of it was on the dock. We swam, sunbathed, fished (successfully) and took many excursions in our boat, from this structure. Water was about six feet deep, quite clean, almost no "lake odor" with an almost imperceptible current.

The owner is very pleasant, easy to work with and communications were handled well. The lakehouse was immaculate when we arrived and the owner obviously takes cleanliness, very seriously. We are looking forward to our next stay and would highly recommend this property to anyone considering a stay in this area.

Best Bet on Lake Barkley

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at this property 5 times now and I have nothing but positive things to say! We regularly visit Kentucky Lake and have stayed many places both on Lake Barkley and in TLBTL and this is our repeat favorite. The home itself is well kept and clean with new sheets, and that makes a big difference. It's definitely a hotel-like experience in a house. The dock is perfect for swimming in a clean cove. We also suggest you try the Indian Restaurant in downtown Cadiz, a hidden gem.
