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 Burnside

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!

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!

Perfect in every which way

  • 5 of 5

The home was beautiful, spacious, and overall perfect! We had maximum capacity with our larger group of 8 adults. In most cases we would have been wrestling just to get a seat. Not here. We had plenty of room to cook, sit down for dinner, and enjoy each other's company. There were 4 Queen Beds which normally would have been perfect, but a couple of the dudes wouldn't double up (typical manly man) so we brought an extra air mattress. It was so nice having the privacy of two bedrooms as well as the open concept upstairs where the other two Queens are located. Do you know how hard it is to find a rental that provides all QUEENS instead of those ridiculous bunk beds?! Slim to impossible down here! 😛

James and his wife have the place so tastefully decorated. It's modern with lovely furnishings and cathedral ceilings. We appreciated how fully stocked it was too. I was so devastated when I realized I forgot the oil for my roasted potatoes, but what do ya know... they had 3 different bottles conveniently in the cabinet! And yes, as everyone else has mentioned, the fruit basket was adorable. Gives the place that extra special warm touch. Thanks again guys! Hope to stay with you again in the near future.

Nice house.......

  • 4 of 5

The house was really nice. Clean and everything we needed was available. The internet was a problem but my husband finally got it to working the 2nd day. The kids loved the roominess. Open and spacious. It was a drive to town with all the curves but that's to be expected from the location. All in all it was a nice getaway for a few days. Absoulutley loved the hot tub !! We would stay again. Thanks for allowing us to use your house for those days. We had a great time.

Absolute Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

The family left us a beautiful fruit basket and the sweetest note. There were a few questions and trouble getting into the gate, and they were there in seconds in the middle of the night to assist. I could not have asked for a better vacation! The home is the cleanest I've EVER seen, and meticulously cared for. It would be a shame to not allow yourself such a perfect relaxing experience with such an amazing family caring for you. God bless and enjoy every little detail they put in to make your stay absolutely flawless. Down to the perfectly placed sticky notes that were right where you would put them yourself , to answer something you were wondering about. We cannot wait to return!

Perfect Getaway with a Personal Touch

  • 5 of 5

Thank you to the entire family who made our stay incredible. First, the home is beautiful, just as it appears in the photos. Second, it's well stocked with everything you could possibly need for a 'home away from home'. And finally, the hand-written note and fruit basket which greeted us upon arrival was a nice personal touch. It's in a gorgeous area of Kentucky. We'd definitely stay in this home again, and encourage others to do the same.
