Great summer escape!

  • 4 of 5

The home was better than the pictures and the description. Our family of five adults and three young children rented this beautiful house mid July, 2016. We all loved it. Our grandchildren had plenty of room to play, we used and liked the kayak, and there was a nice boat dock for our boat/swimming in the lake. The kitchen was very well stocked, with more conveniences than we could use in our week! The view from every window was panoramic. One minor inconvenience was encountered; the water pressure in the showers main spray nozzles was not sufficient. We used the hand held features and got by. Pete, the caretaker stopped by to check on them, and he improved it some. He was very helpful, and said he'd check into replacing the shower heads. (The grandkids loved the outdoor shower, which worked fine.) We used the community pool/hot tub at least three times during our vacation, another plus for families with young children. Penny was easy to work with on the business side of our vacation. We rented a pontoon boat from Kenlake State Park marina and even ate lunch there, made for another great day.

Panoramic Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited the vacation home in May/2016. When we pulled up the drive we both said "Wow". I was a little worried because I read it was hard to find. But using MapQuest we had no problems at all finding the home. If you are looking for privacy and relaxation go no farther. Penny was very pleasant to work with, the caretaker Pete even gave us a call when severe weather (Tornado) was near.--Thanks Pete! I was also concerned by how steep the dock looked in pictures-No worries the walk-way is cut out so that it is a gradual incline-no problems. When we return to KY Lake we will absolutely revisit this home.

Thanks for a wonderful vacation,

Everything was WONDERFUL!

  • 5 of 5

Our time at the property could not have been better. The house is very spacious and well kept. Everything was very clean and updated. The only thing that could have been better is if we had longer to stay! I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a wonderful, quiet place to enjoy the lake and their family and friends! We plan on returning.

Annual Fishing Trip

  • 5 of 5

A fantastic place to meet my buds for our annual fishing trip. We have stayed here for the last 5 years. We plan to return in October, '16. There is plenty of parking for cars and trailers. A nice covered dock with easy access. Views of the lake from every room in the house. Excellent laundry facilities and all the amenities you need. Plenty of room to stretch out and relax after a hard day of fishing! Outdoor furniture on the patio overlooking the lake is extremely comfortable. Penny is very accommodating and easy to work with. The caretakers - Pete and Sandy - are only a phone call away. Major grocery stores and shopping are close by in Murray. You will enjoy your stay. That is why we keep coming back.

The property was well maintained, clean, and was so easy to move in just like it was your own home.

  • 5 of 5

The location and property is beyond fantastic. From awesome sunrises to beautiful sunsets and with the water all around you makes you feel like you are on an exotic island. The house is big enough for 3-4 families to enjoy without being crowded. We all sat and enjoyed the many outside decks soaking up the sun. We all enjoyed the our discovery walks/ trips around the surrounding shores. Our kids enjoyed the paddle boats & the kayaks everyday and explored a little farther everyday. It would be an awesome place to bring a boat as the lake is large and inviting of further exploration. We enjoyed the grill & fire pit & playing bags every day and stayed outside almost every minute of each day. We had great weather for an early spring trip and hope to come back for a full week in the summer time. You are not that far from local town to load up on groceries and needed little odds & ends. Beyond the food pickup you feel like you never need the to leave the property. The property owners were great to deal with and made the trip easy. Everything was awesome there and we look forward to a return trip.

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

We were very happy with the house, boat dock, and the beautiful location. The house is somewhat sparsely furnished and lacks personality. We had a lot of fun with the kayaks and pool table. Boat launch is close by.
