This is the home I grew up in. My parents built this house in 1954-55. While it is an older home it has been well maintained. As a kid we raised beef cattle and grew tobacco and corn. As a kid I would hunt squirrels on this property and camp. It is a very special place to me and my brothers. I now live in Richmond, Kentucky and my brother and sister-in-law live close to this house.
Owner/Manager purchased this Farmhouse in 1955

More than than just a sterile vacation home
I had high expectations for this home based on all the favorable reviews. But those expectations were far exceeded once we arrived there in person. Unlike most vacation homes which have a sterile feel, this property felt like a real home. I was almost as comfortable here as in my own home - and that is saying a lot. One pleasant surprise is unlike how this property is advertised on VRBO, it is NOT 1000 square feet but more like 1700 to 1800 square feet. It was very roomy. We particularly enjoyed the outside covered deck/patio off the den in the back.
Thanks for the kind words about our property. We love when our guests feel like they are at home when they stay at our house. That is the greatest compliment.
Thanks and I hope you will come back soon.
We came for relaxation and golf , we really enjoyed the area and restaurants , plan to book again next spring
We had a nice mini vacation
Well maintained ranch, neat great room, terrific lazy boy chairs!!!
Truly home away from home
We had the best time here. Very clean, quiet, wonderful view and convenient location.
Country home that sleeps 3 couples
Very nice country home. Looks like grandmas old homestead. Certainly not modern but has amenities.
The house and property are beautiful with amazing views! I will definitely recommend to friends and family and hopefully come back in the future.
