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.

Blessings!

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!

Notes:
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 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.

  • 5 of 5

We just want to thank Jimmy and his family, there were so kind with us. We had a really enjoyable stay at their house. Everything was perfect.

We had everything we needed in the house, to cook and to relax. The location is great, quiet and beautiful. I would definitely recommand this house to a friend. Nothing else to say !

Thank you so much again.

Awesome weekend get-away place

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful couples weekend at this house in late October. Our only regret is that we didn't plan ahead far enough and bring more grocery items so that we could spend more time at the house and not eat out as often. The kitchen was fully equipped and the atmosphere of the place was so homey we didn't want to leave. We enjoyed hiking around the Cumberland Falls area and found some very nice places to dine. Would highly recommend this home for your next get-away!!!

Owner's Response: Hilda, It was wonderful to have you in our home. Thank you for taking such good care of it during your visit. We agree that once you get settled, it's hard to leave. We usually try to pack enough groceries ourselves so that when we get to the house we can stay put for the duration. I'm glad you got to see Cumberland Falls. It is truly amazing. Come back and see us when you can. Blessings!

Great place for families

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything you need. It was super clean. The screened in porch with the hot tub was fantastic . We stayed with 8 people and had plenty of room. We rented a boat at Burnside Marina and had a great time.

Thanks so much for a great weekend!

This place was better than described - and very CLEAN! Fantastic stay.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the house during August 2016. To begin with, every time we had a question about the property or area, the owner, James, was VERY quick to respond to emails and phone calls and was accomodating to say the least.

When we arrived (earlier than the stated check in time), we found the house easily thanks to the great directions. The house had a clean and neat appearance from the outside and when we walked in, we found the house to be warm and inviting. They had even turned the air down for us (it was one of the hottest days of the year). The pictures and description of the house did not do this place justice. It was fantastic. Really enjoyed the new large screen TV in the living room and the well stocked kitchen. It was not your typical vaction rental. We really felt at home. Satellite TV's in every bedroom. SUPER CLEAN. We would definitely rent from this family again-had a great time after getting off the lake. They had even put together a binder with information about the house as well as the area-we were able to get the wifi password as well as info on things to do in the area.

This was the third time we have rented in Lake Cumberland Resort and this was the nicest place we have stayed-dealing with the owners made the entire experience a positive one. They even left us a fruit basket with a personal note for our arrival.

Thanks again,

The Cavenders and the Harveys

Owner's Response: Dear Patty, Thank you so much for the kind words. Since our family has made this resort our home we strive to create an experience that our guests will truly appreciate. It means a lot to us when our new friends take a few extra minutes to let us know that we are meeting/exceeding expectations. We use VRBO for our summer vacations and know how frustrating it is when the expectations created online do not match the experience when you arrive. Therefore, we do our best to make sure that what we communicate to our guests is what they experience when they arrive. Please come see us again when you can. Again, thank you for the kind words. Blessings! -The Carters

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved this home. Our family enjoyed the house as well as being so close to the boat ramp. Plenty of parking and a very short walk to the pool. The house was clean and HS everything we needed. Very nice place and would recommend anyone to stay here! Thank you for allowing us to enjoy this home.
