One of three rentals on our peaceful, partially wooded, private 8 acre property
About Pam Oakes
We are Steve and Pam Oakes from West Chester, Ohio. Steve is a retired police sergeant from our local police department and Pam currently works in sales and buying for Welling & Co. Jewelers. We have been enjoying the lake for close to 40 years and absolutely love every aspect of it. Dale Hollow is our "happy place". Our children have grown up enjoying all of the beauty and nature that the lake and surrounding areas have to offer. We couldn't ask for better family and friends time.
Pam Oakes purchased this Cabin in 2004
Why Pam Oakes chose Byrdstown
The property was purchased by Steve's dad and passed down. We have a significant amount of sentimental attachment as well as wonderful memories here. The Bear's Den is one of three rentals available on our Oakes Lane property. There's plenty of room to spread out and enjoy the property with additional friends or family with room for at least 8 more. I'm sure you will agree that the drive down Oak Hill Road and the Oakes Lane property has a peaceful feel. It's absolutely beautiful! We hope your family enjoys it as much as ours has.

Get together at Sunset Marina
October picnic at Sunset Marina. Location of Bears Den about 5-6miles from cabin. Met 13 folks from Delta Eagle Watchers for an afternoon cook out.
Cabin is close, clean and convenient for our weekend.
This cabin was exactly what we were looking for, which is why we returned!
Place was great. Everything very clean. Bathroom a little small but that is a minor complaint. Back porch gave you a feeling that you were in the middle of the woods.
Great weekend getaway!!!
Terrific little cabin with all you need. Beds were comfortable and the place was clean. Back deck was private and great for relaxing. We can’t wait to return! Thanks Pam and Steve!!!!!
Spacious property. Great location and parking availability. The other cabin was more updated with a larger kitchen, but as a lake homebase this served us well! We loved the patio! AC units smelled a bit once they had been running.
Cozy, adequate, had everything we needed.
Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts. We appreciate you choosing one of our properties and hope to have you back again in the future.
Oak Hill Road is a beautiful, scenic and peaceful street with lake views. Walk to the dead end and take a hike down to the lake. Star Point Resort and Eagle Cove Marina are within a 4 mile/10 minute drive of the cabin. Both resorts have ramps available for boat launching and boats or jet skis are available to rent. Sunset Marina is approximately a 15 minute drive. On the way in, Cordell Hull Road, you will pass the Cordell Hull birthplace museum on your right and Bunkham Cave on your left. The cave is a beautiful, wooded approximately 1-1/2 mile hike back. Definitely worth the trip. The nearest grocery is the B & K BiRite on 111. There are also several restaurants right in Byrdstown. Our favorites are the River Grill and the Country Kitchen. Believe it or not, the Shell actually has a great breakfast and pizza. If you like antiques, take a 30 minute drive to Livingston and go through some of the shops. The J & B Stuff store on 111 also has a few antiques as well as a good selection of novelty gifts.
