Very nice and roomy. Third year at this property

  • 5 of 5

This is the third year that we have rented this property and as always we had a great time. The property was roomy and had what we needed for a great vacation. The weather was a bit rainy but we had plenty to do at the cabin. Property was as described and I would recommend to others. We had no need to go out. We had everything we needed. Boat dock was just over the hill and we cooked all our meals in.

Nice cabin, Dock FYI

  • 4 of 5

What we loved:

1. Our family enjoyed the spaciousness and configuration of 2 main bedrooms with baths on the main floor and kids area upstairs. The screened in deck was nice on days that it didn't rain.

2. The cabin was well stocked with plenty of cutlery, plates, bowls, and cups.

3. Clean and well-maintained. Although, the screened in deck could use a deep clean and grill had to be cleaned before using during our stay.

4. The owner provided great customer service and quick follow up.

5. Some trips near the cabin that we enjoyed during our stay: shops in Scottsville (antique shop was a hit, even with our young daughter), Chaney's Dairy Barn in Bowling Green, Ralphie's Fun Center in Glasgow, and Ky Down Under.

Heads up on a couple of items:

1. We did see in other reviews about the steps to dock being quite steep. Although we were hopeful, grandparents (in 80's) were unable to easily walk up and down. Being close to main part of the lake, the dock is quite open to elements and quite a distance from the cabin (concerned about security). Although a wide, mowed path to the dock, almost the entire path to the dock has poison ivy along the edges. Our family is highly allergic to poison ivy and our young son got poison ivy on his legs the first night (even though we all washed well when we came in). These issues caused us to resort to launching the boat from a ramp.

2. There is an active dairy farm directly across the road. The milking parlor is just around the bend in the road near the cabin. Kids enjoyed seeing the evening milking. They may have been spreading manure in the field across the house just prior to us arriving. It was quite a strong smell. Storms later in the week helped keep the smell down a bit.
