What a blessing!

  • 5 of 5

Just left Blessing by the Lake and it certainly was a blessing. The house was super clean, quiet and had everything we needed. We tried to leave the house in good shape so we can be welcome to come back some day.

While there We went to Scottsville and did some antique shopping. We played Euchre, ate and ate and had a small fire outside the last evening. Thanks to the Lankford's for sharing this awesome home!

Loved Blessing by the Lake

  • 5 of 5

Two older couples stayed here for a week and really enjoyed it. The large circle drive out front made it easy to park by the porch to unload all our things into the house; there are only a few steps on the porch. The inside was wonderful; there is a half bath just inside the front entryway, along with a closet on the opposite side. Both bedroom suites were delightful; the beds were very comfortable and the baths were nice. The queen suite has a jetted tub with separate shower and the king suite has a large shower only. The kitchen was well stocked with just about anything you might need; just bring your own food/beverages. We spent a lot of time on the screened in area of the deck; it was so enjoyable and no worry about bugs. Watched beautiful sunsets over the lake almost every evening. Did not go to the private dock since we did not have a boat. Ate at the state park lodge twice; once they had a buffet and the other time the soup/salad bar was available. We went to Glasgow several times; went to the cultural center and were impressed by the exhibits there. Ate at the Gondolier Italian restaurant; the portions were large and the desserts are to die for. Also dined at Colton's Steakhouse and enjoyed it as well. Glasgow has several grocery stores, pharmacies and a Walmart if you need to do any shopping; there are also locally owned businesses too. We went to Habegger's Amish Market near Scottsville; the place was packed. We ate lunch there and then did some shopping; they have fresh baked breads, all kinds of candies, canned goods, jams/jellies, flours, noodles/pasta, seasonings and more. They are open Monday-Saturday. There are signs on the roads that direct you to the place. We had planned on going on the tour of Lost River Cave near Bowling Green but it was closed due to high water. This cave has the only underground boat tour in Kentucky. Blessings has plenty of tourist info in a basket in the kitchen.

We enjoyed our stay so much we plan on returning next year. Blessings is probably the best vacation rental we have ever stayed at; we have stayed at other properties in Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky and Tennessee over the years.

Just what we wanted, a quiet secluded stay on waterfront property

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful cabin. A quiet road. Close to boat ramp and park. Away from the hustle and bustle of town but close enough to run in and eat or pick up odds and ends. Cabin very well stocked with all the essentials. Close to some very cool attractions. We had an awesome time and can't wait to come back next year.
