About James Carter

My wife Carrie is a physician's assistant in Winchester & Mt. Sterling Ky. I am a pastor of a local church in lexington. Carrie graduated from the University of Kentucky in 2001 and I graduated from UK's Physical Therapy Program in 2002. We have one amazing daughter, Christy Ann. Our family lives in Lake Cumberland Resort so you can often find us down at the Lake. We hope our home is a sanctuary for you and your loved ones.


James Carter purchased this chalet in 2007

Why James Carter chose Lake Cumberland

We chose to purchase this home because my (jimmy) family retired from Atlanta to live full time in the Resort. We knew that we would be spending a lot of time at the lake and also wanted to provide a place for our friends and church members to stay when they needed a break from the stress of the world. Lake Cumberland Resort provided that sanctuary needed. It has been a joy to provide a place for friends and family to come and stay!

What makes this chalet unique

The best part of coming back to our lake house is the rest and peace. Unless it's peak season and the boat ramp is in operation, it's extremely quiet in our gated community. Of course, it's always great to spend time with our family, but we also love the time alone. We especially enjoy the late nights in the hot tub and the late mornings on the deck with coffee in hand. Having a TV and DVD player allows our daughter to watch all her favorite movies while we relax. Above all, we enjoy the walks through the woods. Some of the views here are incredible.

Guestbook comments from the owner

The family that owns this home allowed us to use this chalet for our student ministry volunteers who were leading a youth retreat for the weekend. We had never been to Lake Cumberland Resort before and most of our youth workers are use to "roughing it." We had no idea how nice this place was going to be. There were two bedrooms downstairs and then two more beds upstairs in the loft across from the pool table. Most of our leaders could be found in the hot tub till 1 or 2 in the morning relaxing and sharing stories from the day. The changing colors of the trees and peaceful environment provided some amazing quiet time for reflection. We brought a trailer with our sound equipment and props for the retreat which we were able to store in the large storage facility that comes with the rental of this home. We are hoping to come back in the summer with one of our volunteers ski boats. This place is beautiful!

Great home for a getaway

  • 5 of 5

Thoroughly enjoyed our quick getaway stay at this beautiful, well-maintained home. Easy access to the boat ramp was a big plus for us, as we brought a boat down. Wonderful touch having Bonnie meet us as we pulled in, and we really loved the fruit basket! Would definitely stay again.

This cottage was perfect

  • 5 of 5

The owner and his family made our stay feel like we were in our own home. This cottage has everything you need for a relaxing vacation. The kitchen has everything and the outdoor gas grill is excellent. There is plenty of room for everyone. If you are looking for a place to rent in this area of Kentucky do yourself a favor and rent this cottage you won't be disappointed.

Owner's Response: Dear Rick, Thank you for the kind words. We are so glad that your family could come and stay in our home. Having our family so close to the Lake House is a blessing and allows us to accommodate the needs of our guests as if they were our own family. Have a wonderful new year and come see us again soon. -The Carters

Relaxing atmosphere

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay! We met your parents when we first arrived and they were so friendly and nice. They gave us wonderful recommendations of places to go and where to get a wonderful steak dinner! Our family really needed a relaxing, stress free vacation and that is exactly what we got. Our son's pool game improved, sad to say mine and my husband's didn't, but we sure did enjoy trying! And the hot tub every evening became our favorite spot in the house! Thank you all so much!

Beautiful Home! Debbie M.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Christy Ann's Cottage! It is very clean and well maintained. It was great to have the pool only two houses from the pool. The owner's parent were great---we ask for an iron and ironing board and they got it for us that day---so nice of them. The house is well equipped with kitchen and bathroom supplies. The screened in porch and hot tub are great. No bugs and the hot tub was very clean. I would recommend the house to anyone.

Lovely home

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time while staying at Christy Ann's Cottage! Our family brought our boat so we could enjoy Lake Cumberland. The ramp was conveniently located near the house as well as the pool. The house was clean and well kept. It included everything we needed for a comfortable week and the owner's family was on hand to answer our questions.

We will keep the lights on and the cottage clean for the next time you get to come see us. Blessings! Jimmy, Carrie & Christy Ann

Our visit at Christy Ann's cottage was great! The cottage is very clean, fresh, and well maintained. It is well equipped with everything needed from nice bath and kitchen towels to basic spices and plenty of DVDs. The hot tub is awesome! The gated community is a perfect place for morning and evening walks to see deer and lots of rabbits. The boat ramp and dock are just outside the community gate with adequate parking. We were greeted and visited by caretaker to insure all was well. Ice maker was quickly repaired without us requesting it. Before our stay, I called the owner for some clarifications about our visit and billing. Calls were promptly returned and good advice about Cumberland River and Lake were given--much appreciated!!! We will stay at Christy Ann's again! Thank you for sharing your home!

Owner's Response: Donna, We are so glad you had a great stay with us. We encouraged our parents to retire in this community several years ago for all the reasons you mentioned. Thank you for taking the time to write such a detailed review. I am confident this will help our future guests. Of course, we are looking forward to having you and your family back down at the cottage with us in real soon. Blessings! Jimmy, Carrie & Christy Ann

What sets our house apart from the rest is the location and the way in which we care for our home. Not only are we located in a gated community across from a boat ramp on a secluded section of Lake Cumberland, but because our home is maintained by our family after every visit, it doesn't feel like an abused rental property. It feels like home!
