Guestbook comments from the owner

The Nichol lodge is a wonderful place for some fun in the sun. Nice pool and hot tub. The house is big with lots of room for everyone. the bar and pool table is wonderful. The best kitchen with everything you need and more. We had a couple issues but Penny the Mgr. was so awesome the issues were taken care of right away. She is very sweet and kind and we thank her for making our stay memorable.

Perfect Reunion

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family of 20+ counting babies tries to find an annual 4th gathering spot. All claimed I probably will never top this one. While all are used to going their own direction and gathering for meals & evenings only, more often than not we found our group lounging in & around the pool most of the day or fishing off the dock (great for the kids). We will have to reschedule sometime in the future to actually see the local attractions. The owner couldn't have been more perceptive in knowing when to appear for assistance & when to allow our group privacy. Several did work in boating, 4-wheeling & a trip to see the buffalo & elk in Land Between The Lakes.

Not having a boat created a hardship on us since we bought fishing licenses but thanks to Penny's husband , he helped and the last night and day were hooked up with a boat and enjoyed 2 sunset cruises 🍀Wifi needs improvement . Everything else was good

New dining room was GREAT . Back next year .

Second time is even better

  • 5 of 5

This was the second time we stayed in Nichol Lodge, the first time was 4 years ago. The best thing about Nichol Lodge this time was the caretaker Penny. This lady did every thing she could to make our stay better. The house was clean and spotless. She cleaned the pool every day but you never knew she was around except if we called her for something. Their were 16 of us and this was year 27 for our family vacation. We have rented many places all over the southern Midwest but I must say this was the best. If I could only change one thing I would ask for a better wifi system. This one works but sometimes it was hard to log on but that is a very minor problem. We are taking a vote of the family and it looks like we will go back again next year.

Pool was great. The Lodge needs some updating.

  • 3 of 5

The house had some great features including a well maintained pool. Unfortunately the house itself could use some updating. It rained heavily one day and the roof leaked. Several of the bathrooms held water in the tub while we showered and the faucet was broke in one bathroom. One of the burners in the kitchen did not work along with the garbage disposal. The house was clean but cluttered. We loved the on-site manager. She was up early every morning cleaning the pool and assisted us whenever we had questions or concerns.

I would recommend the property to friends but let them know that it could use some updating.

We did enjoy boating, jet skiing and days by the pool during our visit. We visited Patti's 1880's Settlement on Land Between the Lakes and enjoyed an early dinner. They were able to seat our large party easily and we loved the flower pot bread.

We have enjoyed several trips to Lake Barkley as a family and will return again in the future. We will definitely consider Nichol Lodge as an option for our large party but recommend a little maintenance on the property.

Fabulous vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for a better place to have our family reunion. The house was absolutely perfect with each bedroom having it's own bathroom, multiple living areas, a huge kitchen, decks, the pool and the lake! The house was so spacious that even with 20+ people, we never felt crowded. The kids could be playing and making noise in one area while a few adults relaxed in another for some quiet conversation. And each bedroom was so roomy that if you wanted total solitude, you could go to your room and not feel like you were locked away in a closet. There were many 'bonuses' too, like the commercial ice maker, the air compressor for blowing up the many pool floats and toys, the THREE full size refrigerators and the plentiful parking that made things so much easier for our large group. We were there during a heat wave so the pool was much appreciated and used extensively. Penny, the property manager, cleaned it every morning and kept it in tip top shape for us. And speaking of Penny, she was a gem - ready to assist us with anything we needed but never in the way or intrusive in the least. Everyone in our group was extremely happy with the house - we couldn't have asked for a better place.

Penny is the gem that makes Nichol's Lodge work for us. She makes us feel at home.

No place is perfect but we gave her our concerns and she did everything in her power to make it better.

Mr. Rogers : better wifi is a definite. We signed up for next yr #4
