Cadiz House Rental Photos and Description

5 Bedrooms/4.5 Bathrooms - Sleeps 15

Enjoy the stunning beauty of Kentucky's Land Between the Lake year around from the Edgewater Retreat. Our exquisite vacation home is located on 1.9 acres in a quiet woods setting on the waters edge.

As you drive down the private driveway, one of the first comfort amenities you'll notice is the privacy, followed by the two car attached garage and the abundance of parking accommodations for guests, and boats.

The main level has been set up with entertainment in mind. Its open floor concept (combining the kitchen, dining room and living room), allows for more family/guest interaction. From the new kitchen appliances to the stand kitchen-aid mixer, this fully equipped kitchen allows you to cook as much, or as little as you desire. The dining room seats 8, but because of the floor-design, guests can easily converse with the guests seated at the kitchen table and island bar.

When you aren't taking in the impressive view of lake Barkley through the living rooms large French doors, you might wish to view the 60 inch flat screen TV. It is located in the spacious living room, directly over the gas log fireplace.

The laundry room is on the main level. It features a high efficiency washer and dryer along with an iron and ironing board.

Also, located on the main level are:

King suite (bedroom #1 with his and her bathrooms), king size bed and flat screen TV.

Bedroom #2, queen size bed.

Bedroom #3, queen size bed.

Full and a half-bath.

The entertainment continues on the lower level with a fully-furnished game room. For your enjoyment, there is a TV/DVD viewing area, pool table, ping-pong table, electronic dart board, board games, popcorn machine and wet bar. Everything you'll need to make fun-family memories.

Completing the lower level inside:

Bedroom #4 queen size bed, sofa bed and TV.

Bedroom #5 full-size bunk beds.

Full bathroom.

With several boat ramps close to Edgewater retreat, launching your boat and starting your vacation on the water has never been easier. We have a private boat slip available for you at our community dock. For your hauling convenience, we've even provided a golf cart.

We invite you and your family to experience our spectacular vacation home and nature at it's finest, available all four seasons! Beautiful sunsets, fabulous lake views, tranquility...Edgewater Retreat.

Why Phyllis Johnson chose Kentucky

We chose this vacation property because it offered quiet solitude as well as faster paced outdoor activities. The views are picturesque! We look forward to sharing the beauty of the Kentucky seasons, with you.

What makes this house unique

This open floor plan makes it great for large family gatherings.

You can get up in the mornings and enjoy sitting on the swing out back with a great view. Watch the wild life its every where .

Beautiful home!

  • 5 of 5

For 11 years, the women in my family have been gathering for a 3-day "Reisz Girl's Weekend". During that time, we have rented properties in Indiana, Kentucky, Tennessee and Alabama. Our stay at Edgewater this year tops all of the other rentals. This place was incredibly well-stocked and the size and layout was perfect for our group of 14 that ranged in age from my 89-year-old grandmother to my 3-year-old cousin. We have all decided to forgo looking for a new place next year--Edgewater will become our "permanent" reunion home. Thanks to Phyllis for making this a lovely stay.

WOW...What An Amazing Lake Front Home!

  • 5 of 5

This is the 3rd year our family of ten has stayed at 'Edgewater' during the Labor Day weekend. We have visited the Kentucky Lake area yearly for the past 35+ years and have stayed at various homes near the Cadiz Kentucky/Lake Barkley area. This house far surpasses any of the others we have chosen to rent. I cannot say enough good things about this property. From beginning to end we have always had a great experience. Phyllis has always been so kind and caring...just a great person to work with. You can tell that she takes pride in her rentals and is always on top of any problem you might have. Believe will fall in love with "Edgewater'. It doesn't matter if you are sitting inside...or out on the spacious deck or on the comfortable screened in back porch,....the view of the lake is wonderful. Inside the house you will find plenty of room to spread out and 'claim your spot'. The downstairs is a great retreat, especially if you have grand kids, like us. Phyllis has provided a never ending supply of games to keep them busy, while the adults make great use of the hot tub, to relax, which is just outside the back door. Upstairs the kitchen area is WONDERFUL. I can't think of a thing that you would need to bring if you are planning a meal. Phyllis has thought of everything and then..MORE! (plenty of skillets, pots, pans, utensils, crock pot, blender, 2 coffee pots, name it, she's got it). There is even an outside refrigerator to hold the extras you might bring. All of the bedrooms are so nice,...comfy and cozy! I might add that Phyllis takes extra time to see that the home is clean, so that when you walk do feel as if you have just arrived home! Really during stays here, we just cherish our family time ...making great wonderful new memories, that we have never felt the need to explore much of the area, as there is so much to do without ever leaving the place. For those that want to venture out....Cadiz is a wonderful small town to visit, as well as the Homeplace located in the 'Land Between The Lakes'. Also you can rent paddle boards, pontoons, canoes, etc. nearby, if you prefer spending part of you day on the lake. As for us...we just enjoy our family...and I have found no other place that equals 'Edgewater' to do that. Thank you again Phyllis, for allowing us all of us to stay again in your awesome house! A huge added plus is that you have now become a friend, that we look forward to seeing each year.

Wonderful Place! HIGHLY Recommend!

  • 5 of 5

There were 8 friends that stayed here, 4 couples. everything from the view, off lower porch or upper deck, screened in porch to down to the water for some fishing or sitting by the firepit! We also rented a pontoon from Lake Barkley Marina and that was a blast!

ALL of us had a GREAT time! The property is taken care of & The owner Phyllis is one of the easiest people to work with ,,,,, ever!:)

We also met the person who takes care of things if shes away , which she was for a few of the days we were there and he was awesome to work with too! All you need to bring is yourselves and a willingness to have a lot of fun and or relax!

Steve/Deby West

The house was FABULOUS and has so much room!

  • 4 of 5

We had a total of 8 adults, 3 children, 1 baby, and 1 little dog who was exhausted by the end of the day trying to keep up with everybody. This was the first time we have had all the kids and grand-kids together and under one roof in 9 years. What a treat!

Although the weather wasn't the best during our stay, the ability to use the fitness center & wellness pool was a nice option. The golf cart was a hit and was used daily. Getting to the boat dock was a little scary, so we chose to park the cart and vehicles at the top of the hill and walked down. The property at the house was also steep and getting down to the water could be difficult for some. We did not let the kids swim at the property because it's just not set up for that, and was not advertised as such. I was just being wishful. I had hoped to use the fire pit and had everything to make smores with the grand-kids, but they were too busy playing in the basement game room so we made popcorn instead. The kitchen has everything you need and then some. The high chair was a pleasant surprise and the extra refrigerator a plus too. The dining room table was large enough to have the entire family sitting together for dinner which was so special. There is no way I could say enough about the home decor....loved it. The "dock picture" downstairs and the "wall art" in the dining room were my personal favorites. And the beds.....SO comfortable! Definitely investing in one of those feather bed covers for my own bed at home. Thank you SO much Phyllis for sharing your beautiful home with others. A great time was had by all!

Beautiful location!

  • 4 of 5

This was a perfect location for our family reunion - we had family members from 89 yrs old to 16 months. Everyone had a wonderful time. The local food store had everything we needed and then some. The little kids enjoyed the playground in town when they couldn't follow after the bigger kids.

The house was everything we could have dreamed of. We even got to enjoy the opening night of the Olympics sitting around the spacious living room.

Phyllis was very helpful whenever we had a problem - like getting the golf cart running! Thanks so much for everything!
