Why Beth Walker chose Kentucky

The view had us sold!!! It is one of the best you will ever see on the Lake. I guess that is why Matthew Lyon who founded Eddyville and Lyon County had once owned this lot ! It is truly a beauty! Our house has all the modern ammenities but yet so much history. Come stay and see for yourself. We would loved to have you!

What makes this house unique

This property is close to Grocery Store, Gas Stations, Restaurants, Marinas plus Golf course and Waterpark. You won't have to go far if you forgot something or if you are wanting to get to some great recreation in!!! Our location is not only convenient it has good paved roads that makes it easy to get you back to the highway.

Quiet, spacious retreat

  • 5 of 5

We stayed recently with our two teenage sons and this house worked out just as we hoped. There was plenty of space and everyone had their own retreat space since the layout of the bedrooms is very spread out. It's very quiet and peaceful so there were occasional wildlife encounters we found interesting (beavers, deer and lots of large birds). We explored the beach, built a fire in the fire pit and just watched the boats go by from the rocking chairs on the back porch. Beth and Jamie put a binder together with recommendations for what to do in the surrounding area and had local guide booklets on hand which was very helpful in planning our day trips. We liked the fact that the area isn't overdeveloped, but there were plenty of unique activities that helped us connect and have fun together. Having such a comfortable waterfront house surrounded by nature to come back to each evening made for a wonderful get away.

The home was charming. We loved the view of the lake from the porch.

  • 4 of 5

We had a family get together with parents, children and grandchildren. The home accommodated all of us very well. We had access to the lake to swim. We enjoyed the bird and boat watching. The home was completely furnished so we only needed to bring food. We loved sitting on the porch to visit and play with the grandkids. It was spacious and we never felt "on top of each other." We like the location to town and other parks.

Great Place!

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of 8 adults, 1 teen, 1 kid and 2 babies. We brought a blow up mattress and a pack n play to make sleeping arrangements work for our family. This place has a great view, wonderful front porch and all the basic necessities. There is a great yard and fire pit just mind the sloping hill with small children and there are a lot of steep stairs on the porch and towards the water. There wasn't a gate to block off from fast toddlers. But you have to be up high to get the view. The owners were helpful and answered my email questions promptly. The house was very clean and great working air conditioner.

A wonderful place for making memories.

  • 5 of 5

Our group included 8 boys, ages 10 through 18. Truth be told, we had a rough few days of weather. Normally, that would dampen a family vacation. However, this property helped make it a fantastic trip. The house is the most well-stocked property we've ever rented. We tend to overpack based on other experiences, but could have left much of what we brought at home. From the kitchen (pots, pans, utensils), to the living room (board games, Netflix, Karaoke machine, Wi-Fi), to the restrooms and laundry...we wanted for nothing. The outside was even more impressive. We love sitting around a big fire...and this was a fire pit on steroids. Huge, with 4 large stone benches. We also love to fish. There is a lot of very easy access to the lake from the property's shore. Though the weather limited our fishing time, one of the boys still managed to land a HUGE largemouth bass. The back porch is amazing. A great place to sit in a couple of rocking chairs, have your morning coffee while gazing out on the beautiful scenery. The property is a short drive to some great hiking trails. We thoroughly enjoyed a 7-mile hike on the Canal Loop trail. The house was clean and the property was well maintained. I really could go on and on. We loved our stay, loved the property, made tons of great memories and hope to stay there again some day. Beth was easy to work with and communicated well. If only she could control the weather. :)

Spring Break - Family style

  • 5 of 5


We had a great week at your beautiful home. My family of six, along with my parents,really enjoyed ourselves and made many lasting memories. We enjoyed playing basketball, fishing, making s'mores and going on "adventures" along the shoreline collecting interesting items.

I highly recommend your home for the location and gorgeous sunsets every night. The kitchen had everything you would need to cook big meals. The living area is very nice and the beds are so comfortable. I slept great !

I hope to be back soon.
