Kentucky 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 .

Property is very nice and the house is fabulous! We had our family of 17 and all was very comfortable with enough bedrooms for a newborn to 8 years old and young adults that need there own bathroom space! the only thing is the back yard is a little steep and the boat dock being a distance away. The golf cart was very dependable and the front yard worked great for our grandkids slip and slide! We enjoyed the fishing, kayaking, wake boarding and tubing! The pool at the Barkley state park was a nice change for the kids to swim in. They were very friendly. Loved the cove we were on our son said it was the best wake boarding lake he has ever been on! Phyllis was very helpful in every way and would recommend renting from her anytime!

Exceptional lodging and personal attention-

  • 5 of 5

Pack lightly because Phyllis has every item you might need in this lovely home! Our family (ages 11 months-65 years) enjoyed all of the amenities, and still had enough privacy when needed/wanted. Our extended family rented another of Phyllis's homes and we were able to have enough room for large family gatherings. We highly recommend this property.

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

House was very secluded. House was clean . the week we were there was 95+ every day but house was always comfortable. Kitchen was well appointed. Had small appliances we have seen in previous properties. For 13, 9 adults 5 children it worked. Cadiz was fairly close for shopping. Definitely would visit again.

perfect place for anniversary celebration

  • 5 of 5

Edgewater was the perfect place for our 50th wedding anniversary celebration. There were 17 of us ages 3 to 77. The heat & humidity was awful so a lot of time was spent in the game room. The house has excellent air conditioning.

Property was nice, perfect for out needs with ten kids.

  • 4 of 5

There was everything one need for a great week away from the city...access to the water, fishing dock, game room, tons of space, and everything I needed in the kitchen! The one complaint I have is the wifi is not free as indicated in the description. We were informed (at check in) that after a certain amount of data was used there would be charges for each additional amount used. Well, 12 people, ten being kids, used up the initial "free" data the first night! They did NOT download movies or videos, simply played games and searched etc. It ended up costing me an additional $45 for wifi. Bummer. Otherwise the kids had a great time.

Owner's Response: Jennifer I really enjoyed meeting you and your family and your fur baby! Glad you enjoyed your stay at Edgewater I just want to say sorry for the Internet . There is no internet service in the area. Att is caped off. I have been on waiting list for 3 years. I had posted on my site limited internet for that reason. I wanted to give my guest access to wifi because I know a lot of my guest need for work So that's why I choose to use hot spot box. That way you have Internet. But I am limited To the amount of data with hot spot boxes As soon as it is available I will have unlimited wifi . Look forward to your return. Thank you Phyllis

Edgewater was the perfect choice

  • 5 of 5

This property was the perfect choice for our college reunion. Phyllis was a wonderful host and was more than helpful in terms of organizing everything before, during, and after our stay. Everything was as described. We even saw a few deer throughout our stay on the property! I don't know who was more surprised, me or the city puppy we brought who had never seen one before. The location was perfect as well. Close enough to Eddy Grove Winery (a must if you stay), and ice cream at The Fishin Hole was a perfect end on our last night in Cadiz. Would definitely stay again if we are ever looking to return!
