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 .

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!

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!

Great Family Vacation - Will be returning!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this house this spring for a long weekend. The house was perfect! The back yard is a little steep but we didn't have any little ones so it wasn't a problem! The place was clean and had everything we needed and more. The boat dock isn't far, and there is a golf cart provided. Upon arrival the key was not where it was supposed to be. After a short texting conversation with the owner she was able to tell us where the spare was and we were in! Halfway through the trip we popped the tire off of the rim of the golf cart going up the hill by the boat docks and again, after a brief text message the owner (who was also out of town traveling) was able to have someone there to fix it within an hour! We will definitely be returning!

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.
