About Timothy Lewis

I was a US Navy pilot, and retired in San Diego in 1991. Jane and I started a business in our garage printing t-shirts, and now, over twenty-five year later, our son is running it. We looked for a place to buy for a vacation home, and having grown up in Southern Indiana, I had spent some time at Kentucky Lake as a teenager, and remember loving it. We still have family in the area, so we bought a lot and with the help of my parents, we built Lake 'n Logs.

Timothy Lewis purchased this house in 1998

Kentucky Lake

Kentucky Dam creates the largest man made lake in the eastern United States. It backs up the Tennessee River for 184 miles and creates a lake that stretches south across the western tip of Kentucky and nearly the entire width of Tennessee. At maximum normal operating level, Kentucky Lake covers 160,300 acres.

More important than the project's size are the jobs it performs. Kentucky Dam is the spigot that TVA (Tennessee Valley Authority) uses to help control floods on the lower Ohio and Mississippi rivers; it is the gateway to the Tennessee River waterway and is a major generating plant in the TVA power system.

Recreation

Kentucky Lake is a magnet for vacationers and fishermen from a wide area of mid- America, with recreation use amounting to some 17 million visits each year. Along its nearly 2400 miles of cove-studded shoreline are many boat docks and resorts, 4 state parks, the Tennessee National Wildlife refuge, 48 public access areas, 2 county parks, 5 municipal parks, 2 state wildlife management areas, 10 group camps and clubs, 92 commercial recreation areas, and 3 small wildlife areas.

Great House in a Great Lake Location

  • 5 of 5

Great location that is very close to Moors Resort for boat rentals and other activities. Recommend bringing your own food options, as there isn't too many options nearby. House was very clean upon arrival, and the owner was extremely accommodating.

Perfect house for a vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

On August 18 my family, ages 1 to 65, arrived at Cabin on the Cove for an extended weekend. When we pulled up we were shocked at how nice and big the driveway is. We were able to easily park 2 trucks with boats and trailers plus two additional cars. There was even room for more.

Once we entered the house we noticed it was clean with a well stocked kitchen and a second refrigerator in the lower level. It has 3 different gathering areas, living room on the main level, family game/TV room on the lower level and the wonderful screened in porch overlooking the lake so we were able to have quiet areas if the babies were sleeping and areas for fun family games. Tim and Jane seem to have thought of everything needed for a fun weekend, including the air hockey table, pool table, the fire pit that we used to enjoy s'mores and a guitar led sing-a-long and a grill we used one night for brats and the next night for grilled salmon. Having a boat dock almost right outside the back door was also a plus making it easy to get even the little ones to our boat and back into the house.

Of course the wonderful weather and viewing the total solar eclipse just made the weekend almost perfect.

We are hoping to return soon:-)

Peaceful comfort

  • 4 of 5

This is a very charming and quite place on the cove, but maybe challenging for the elderly. It is lovely, and a wonderful place for family get togethers. It's fully equipped with a very nice kitchen and three stories with a game room on the lowest level. It has a bathroom on each level which is a blessing for older people. We had a lovely time while we where there. We all enjoyed the screened in porch for afternoon visits, and the grandkids loved the hammock chairs. I highly recommend this place with the understanding there are a lot of stairs and it is a very steep incline up the driveway. So much so that two of our party members opted to park at the top of the incline. It can be a very arduous climb back up from the lake if you have a health problem or are elderly, but with this understanding I highly recommend it.
