Overview

Kentucky Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Authentic Log Cabin on the lake! One turn off main highway.

Come visit this beautiful log home on Lake Barkley with extensive decking overlooking the lake and the Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreational Area. The cabin has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, laundry, sun room/reading room, and central heat and air.

The cabin sleeps 8 comfortably. Boating, fishing, swimming, and sunbathing are just out the back door. Nearby you can find horseback riding, go for a bike ride, or get wild and crazy on your ATV at Turkey Creek in LBL. Traveling west to Aurora, you will find Kentucky Lake State Park, host of the Hot August Blues Festival. Head east to Cadiz, home of the Trigg County Ham Festival, and you will find several antique shops, 2 nearby golf courses, tennis courts, walking trails, and much much more.

This log cabin is situated on the main lake with fabulous views year round and is conveniently located less than a mile from the main highway (US 68/80). Although no dock permits are granted on the main channel; the public boat ramp is just a mile down the road with very easy access. I also have dock access at the end of the street. A canoe is located on site for your use.

Wi-Fi and Dish Network are included. Verizon and ATT work well inside and out. To the best of my knowledge, all cell carriers work outside the cabin.

If you need anything at all, I live at the end of the street and will do my best to make your stay at the lake an enjoyable one! Included with your stay is a 5 person pass to the fitness center at nearby Lake Barkley State Park. This is a great place to unwind after a long day of sight seeing or a great place to take the kids on a rainy day. They offer racquetball, indoor pool, sauna, steam room, free weights, treadmills, nautilus machines, and workout classes. You will find the pass laying on the table with the house key.

FAQS:

 No more than 2 pets are allowed. There is a $50 fee for each pet.

 There is room for 4-5 cars in the driveway. There is plenty of room for over flow parking, just let

me know and I’ll show you where it is.

 Free wifi is provided

 ALL your linens are provided. I always recommend bringing your pillow for your comfort.

 The kitchen has basic pots and pans and utensils for your general cooking needs.

 There is a full size fridge and freezer in the kitchen.

 The neighborhood is located on a dead end street and is usually very quiet.

 Our neighbors’ kids play in the street so please drive with caution.

 The grill is propane and the propane is provided. Bring a lighter as ours tend to walk off.

 The outdoor grill is not cleaned by the cleaning staff, please clean up after yourself. Also, please

excuse the last guest for not listening to the first part of this statement.

 The steps on the deck will lead you all the way to the shoreline.

 The water is gently sloping and you can swim from the shore.

 The bottom of the lake is rocky and semi-muddy. I recommend wearing lake shoes.

 Yes, you can fish from the shoreline. KY fish and game laws apply.

 Yes, you can use my covered dock at the end of the street.

Everyone is welcome to come to the end of the street and use my lot on the point. I do ask that you respect our privacy and not walk by the door looking inside.

 The pontoon we have available for rent is an older model 23’ pontoon with an Evenrude 115 motor. It is shared between all of our rental houses and I do recommend you reserve in advance. It rents for $165 daily plus fuel. I have fuel onsite and will fill the boat each evening. Our fuel is usually about $.25 per gallon higher than the gas at the BP gas station at the end of our street. The pontoon is always docked at our COVERED dock. Once I have given you safety instructions you are allowed to use the boat from sunrise to sunset. NO night use. If you are out after dark I will assume you are missing and emergence personnel will be notified.

 I always recommend you bring your food with you. Our grocery stores are no comparison to the stores most are used to in the city. I am (almost) always available by phone or email. Our cell service isn’t always the best so please leave a voicemail if I do not answer.

About Lucas Hale

I own a sawmill just down the road and we do some property management along with many other endeavors. We purchased The Log Cabin in early May 2013 and have been rapidly doing some much needed maintenance. Please bear with us as we continue making improvements.

Lucas Hale purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Lucas Hale chose Kentucky

I have lived in this neighborhood my entire life. In 2007, I purchased this residence from my grandparents who had been here for 35 years and they actually watched as The Log Cabin was originally constructed. As a kid, I grew up at the house at the end of this same street and recently had the opportunity to purchase that very house. My wife and I are super excited to be moving to the point!

What makes this cabin unique

This is a quiet neighborhood on the water. The multiple decks leading down to the lake give you the opportunity to experience several views of the water and the Barkley Bridge. On quiet mornings or early twilight, I have seen otters, beavers, deer, geese, ducks, and plenty of fish floppings! From time to time, an adult eagle can be seen hunting in the bay area.

Excellent accommodations

  • 5 of 5

The log cabin house was very nice and lived up to it's billing in the description. Lucas the owner was very accommodating and nice to work with. The close proximity to the public boat launch was very nice, as was the covered dock Lucas provided for us to moor our boat for the week. We had bad luck with the weather our week there, but still very much enjoyed staying there. Highly recommended!

Family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The log cabin was so spacious and clean! The deck and view was spectacular! We were so grateful to Licas for allowing us to rent his pontoon that we all enjoyed! Lucas was there for anything we had questions about or needed. The fire pit was awesome! One of the best family vacations we ever had!!

Best decision of the trip

  • 5 of 5

Incredible stay. Great location. Great owner to work with. What more can I say?

Lucas made us feel right at home on his street. We got to the area a little earlier than expected and he was able to let us check in a little early. We set up hammocks, cooked on the grill, and ate dinner, all on the back porch which staircases down to the water.

We rented his pontoon boat which was a great experience and a better price than any marina around. He has kayaks too, which are free to use. But with only staying 2 nights we didn't find time to go down and use them. I guess we have to come back another time!

WiFi wasn't too fast, so using our 4G was the best way for internet access, but cell service was good, so no need to worry about that.

Location is great if you're interested in visiting LBL during your stay in the area. Bridge is less than a mile away, but far enough that there's minimal road noise.

All in all, a great visit and we're already talking about how to do it next year.

We loved that our houses were side by side

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay over Memorial weekend. First the view was great from the deck. By renting both houses we had plenty of room. I know you didn't

provide the weather but God sure did give us beautiful weather which we enjoyed. Couple of grandsons brought boats for fishing so they enjoyed that.

We found lots to do. Everything was great! One grandson said Grandma this was my favorite place we have been, course he also meant "it was on a lake"

But really we all enjoyed it! Everything was clean & nice. Only one problem all week end & that was tv, however Lucas was right on it as soon as I called.

I would recommend to anyone. And we would use it again.
