Overview

Kentucky Cabin Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 1 1/2 bath, sleeps 7

This spacious lake front cabin has a beautiful, scenic view of the lake from two decks. Relax in the rockers on front porch from which deer, wild turkey, and raccoons are often spotted. You'll want to spend at least one evening roasting hot dogs and marshmallows around the campfire at the fire pit.

From the private boat dock fish for channel catfish, large mouth bass, crappie, and red ear sunfish. Bring your own boat and park it at the private dock. Or take the rowboat for a leisurely paddle up the cove. We also furnish two kayaks and a pedalboat for your enjoyment. Lake Malone State Park in Western Kentucky is known for its unusual sandstone cliffs.

The interior of the house is trimmed with antique barn wood on all three floors. It has been creatively decorated with antiques, vintage linens, and hand made crafts. A game room is located in the loft with a pool table and 1950's pin ball machine.

During your visit you will want to check out the 'museum' and Santa room located next door to the Stewart House.

The three bedrooms are located on the main floor and two have a breathtaking view from the treetops. Sleep in the Kentucky Room with the authentic Kentucky moonshine still which was raided by the revenuers, Mama's Bedroom, or the Butterfly Room.

Cook your breakfast on the 100-year-old wood cook stove, converted to electric. The lower floor also opens onto a very large tin roof covered deck - you'll be thrilled to sit in the swing and listen to it rain! The den has a large fireplace to warm yourself by if your visit occurs during the cooler season.

All you will need for your visit is your clothes and food. The cabin is well-equipped with supplies. This peaceful, rustic, country cabin is the perfect escape for you and your loved ones.

About Geraldine Ewing

I retired in 2008 after serving for 20 years as the local Baptist associational secretary. Prior to that I was a real estate salesperson and appraiser for 10 years. My hobbies are going to auctions, antique shops, flea markets and yard sales in hopes of finding a treasure for the Stewart House or our other vacation rental on Lake Malone, Little Cliff Cabin. My husband and I have two rather spoiled 3/4 poodle dogs, Quito and Domingo, from a former exchange student we had from Ecuador. We have 3 sons and 8 grandchildren.

Geraldine Ewing purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Geraldine Ewing chose Kentucky

We are both from Muhlenberg County and when our children left for college our large Victorian home was more than we wanted. We decided to move to Lake Malone State Park because we have always spent so much time relaxing and playing on it. We bought our present home so our children would be on 'vacation' when they came to visit. For about 10 years we got to know Mr. Stewart when he came to work on his vacation home located next door to our home. When he passed away we decided to buy his house and make it a vacation home for others because it would be something to keep us busy during retirement. It works out perfectly because we are available if a problem arises. It is perfect for our large family's Thanksgiving feast with the all night campfire and pig roast. Both houses are full with as many beds as our family and friends need.

What makes this cabin unique

Our guests tell me that they love staying at The Stewart House because it is different than their homes. The items filling and decorating the cabin are either old or unusual. It is for the family looking for a place they can get away from it all and enjoy each other's company with the knowledge that sightseeing is only an hour or two away. The house has three floors, two decks and a front porch. Many people tell me they enjoy the way it is laid out because they are able to enjoy each other's company but it is easy to find a private spot for relaxing or reading. A great benefit of owning The Stewart House is meeting people from all over the US. We have had visitors from almost every state. People find it is a good meeting place since it is located roughly in the middle of the country. I also get to spend a lot of time searching for that perfect unique item for decorating. I have been told by visitors that they have spent a week and found some unusual item that they had missed. I love the special touches that Mr. Stewart put in it such as the staircase that crosses the windows because he forgot that he had to have a way to get to the top floor and the fact that so many of the construction materials were very old such as windows and the barn wood. It definitely has a personality all its own.

comfortable, old school relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The Ewings provide a very nice, old style, comfortable place to relax, fish, paddleboat and sleep. If you're looking for high tech, glitzy accommodations, this isn't it. But if you're looking for a place to be quiet, de-stress, spend time outdoors and enjoy a throw-back to the 50's style of vacation get-away, this is it. Yes, you either wash your dishes and utinsels by hand or you use paper & plastic - there is no dishwasher but you. We enjoyed reading about the history of the Stewart House and appreciate how the Ewings have maintained that heritage for renters to appreciate, too. The house was clean and comfortable and accurately described what a renter can expect. You don't come to this rental to go out and do a bunch of things like you'd normally do in a larger city; you come to this rental to get away from all that. Keep that in mind and bring what you need so as to avoid trips to the store.

Our most fun activity each morning and evening with our small grandson was putting out nuts or other edibles for the squirrells that come up to the deck and even to the sliding glass door. If you sit still after putting out food for them, they will get as close as 4 feet.

Kentucky is flat out beautiful and the house is located in a wonderful place to see and enjoy some of that beauty, literally at the end of the road.

If there was any negative it would have to be the lack of a good oven to cook things in. A small, electric oven-like unit is in the old converted-to-electric wood stove which we made do with on some things but was unable to bake or cook some things we'd brought - muffins mixes, cassaroles and such. This inconvenience is small in consideration of everything else...and it was cool getting to cook off of a genuine 100 year old wood / electric cook stove ! Cooking by fire at the fire pit is really cool. The ingenious cooking grill is fun and inspiring to use - I think I will try to make my own version of it at home ! As for local eateries, there isn't much in the way of restaurants or grocery stores in Dunmor, but since we did not try to eat at the restaurants I can't give a review on them. There is a WalMart Super Store is in Russellville ( 30 min away ) as well as some good restaurants, and an IGA in the next closest town to Dunmor.

Thank you, Ewings for a wonderful place to get away to !

Nice Stay

  • 4 of 5

This cottage is very comfortable. Nicely decorated in antiques and country/rustic charm. We had 3 teenage boys with and they really enjoyed the game room. The lake is beautiful. Lots of wildlife. It's a little bit of incline, so if you are looking for a level area to get to lake, this might not work for you. We didn't mind it, however for those who have a handicap, it could be challenging. We caught over 100 fish which we enjoyed eating as well. Geraldine and Bill were very inviting and wonderful to speak to.If there was a problem, they immediately took care of it.

Wonderful Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This property was one of the best equipped all inclusive places we have beer stayed. We literally did not need to leave the cabin. The game room was wonderful for when it was to hot to venture outside. The fishing was great, the swimming was wonderful, the fire pit was fun and everything was clean available. We would recommend Christian Way Farm and Putt Putt or Tie Breaker Water Park for day trips. All this and you can't possibly miss Boat Church!! The owners were great hosts!! We will be back!!!

  • 5 of 5

The unique style of this cabin was refreshing. It's so peaceful. Not to far from things to see and do. Will be back over and over again. The owner are wonderful and friendly.watching the squirrels and seeing the humming birds was nice. Thanks for a wonderful place.

Lake Malone State Park is a 788-acre lake enclosed by dramatic 50-foot sandstone bluffs rising above the water's edge and surrounded by hardwood forests. The 'easy rated' 1.5 mile Laurel Trail provides views of many rock walls, once used as shelters by Native Americans. The cabin is on the water with swimming and great fishing off the dock. The beach is nearby by boat, 1 mile around the lake by car but too rugged to walk the shoreline.

Within a short drive are Jefferson Davis Monument and East Union Quaker settlement. Bowing Green is one hour away with Beech Bend Amusement Park and Raceway, the National Corvette Museum and Lost River. Mamouth Cave is one hour and fifteen minutes away. Nashville, TN is one hour and fifteen minutes away.
