Nancy House Rental Photos and Description

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-18)

Our home is situated on Faubush Creek - Lake Cumberland, which is a 3-4 mile finger off of the main lake at Cumberland Point Recreation Area. Our home is surrounded by seven acres of frontage property and wooded hillside. It is the perfect location for your Lake Cumberland vacation rental to enjoy with your family and friends. This split level home, with five bedrooms and over 4,400 square feet of living space, offers some of the finest vacation lodging you will find around Lake Cumberland. The view is incredible whether you are taking it in while relaxing on the deck that spans the back of the house or sitting in the hot tub on the walkout porch below.

Main Floor: Foyer, Half-Bath, Living Area, Dining Area, Kitchen, Fireplace, Master Bedroom, Master Bath, Laundry

Lower Level: Living Area (Two Futons), Pool Table, Wet Bar, Full-Sized Refrigerator, Bedroom (King), Full Bath (Shower)

Upper Level: Living Area, Two Bedrooms (Each with Two Full-Sized Beds), Full Bath, Twin Bed, Catwalk to Bedroom (Day bed with Pop-Up).

Occupancy - 12 Adults/Children + Up to 6 Additional Children. 18 Maximum including children. No more than 12 Adults unless approved by owner. Ideal for 8 Adults plus children.

Private, path access, down to the lake. Just beyond the firepit, you will find the 12-by-12 look-out deck. From the deck, you then make your way down approximately 125 steps (with several landings, of course). When you reach the bottom of the steps you will be 1/2 way down the hill. The steps will meet the path. The remaining descent is natural terrain that begins very steep and then a gradually tapers off. The trek down to the lake can be challenging for some and is not recommended for the elderly or those with physical impairments. Once you reach to bottom of the hill there is a picnic/camping area and a cove to swim in or anchor/tie-off your boat.

The lake levels are back up so we once again have a nice cove to swim and anchor/tie-up boat. Shoreline is now larger graduated shale rock.

Our home is located in Nancy, Kentucky, approximately 25 minutes from the city of Somerset. This Lake Cumberland vacation rental home offers the perfect get-away for up to four to six couples or three to four families.

Enjoy beautiful Lake Cumberland in the day and relax and enjoy our home in the evening. Bring your own boat or rent one at Lee's Ford Marina or Conley Bottom Marina. A public boat ramp is located just 15 minutes away at Cumberland Point State Park. You can anchor/tie up your boat along the shoreline while you are at our home.

About The Owner

We had been houseboaters and campers for many years at Lake Cumberland...Once the kids came along we wanted to share Lake Cumberland with them...but kids needed more space than a houseboat had to offer. They like to explore and run around. Camping gave the kids more freedom, but we also liked having running water, a hot shower, amenities of your home kitchen and of course, a good mattress. Although we are no longer camping...we are very close to the woods and we still build a morning fire or a evening camp fire.

We make several trips a year to Lake Cumberland but when we are not using our home we like to share it with others.

The Owner purchased this house in 2002

Why The Owner chose Lake Cumberland

We absolutely love Lake Cumberland. It is the best lake for boating, water-skiing, tubing, fishing...and of course doing the FLOATILLA. The water is deep and clean and goes on for miles. For the most part...very little boat traffic. Lake Cumberland is a man-made lake that his not heavily commercialized...therefore it is surrounded by the natural heavily wooded hillside. There are homes that overlook the lake but they are generally high up on the hillside.

We appreciate the home year round though. It is a great place to get away from reality. The fall is especially pretty when all the leaves are changing color. The spring is beautiful when all the trees begin to bloom. The cool evenings again are great for having a campfire. The winter time it is quiet and peaceful. Its a good place for family and/or friend time.

What makes this house unique

The best thing about staying at our home is you will get away from the hustle and bustle of life. It takes you to a place to forget about life for a while.

You may also get a little more exercise than normal depending on how many trips you make up and down to the lake. It can be a challenge to climb up/down the staircase and hill to the lake. This of course will make up for all the eating and drinking you will be doing while you are there.

There is a great view for those who don't want to go down to the lake. For those who do not have a boat, but want to explore the lake, there are 2 marina's near by in which you can rent watercraft.

While we don't have telephone service, we still have satellite tv and a stereo system. But don't forget about the hot tub and pool table that will also keep you entertained.

There were a group of ten of us that went on a long weekend getaway! The house was perfect for us! Plenty of room and great weather! The lake was low this summer so we went across to a sand bar and had a little beach party! I will say the steps are no joke and you'll get winded but well worth the trip down!

Even better than last year!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second year renting this house for a long weekend and it was another fantastic stay!

The place is huge, clean, relatively secluded, and has an amazing view. As long as you bring food, you'll have everything you need for your getaway. Since last year, LeAnn and Scott have upgraded the televisions and added wireless internet access, which was a much-appreciated improvement.

For large groups (we have about 12 every year), I can't recommend this place enough. We tried a few places near Lake Cumberland before finding this property, and none of them came close in regards to amenities and value. On top of all that, the owners are a pleasure to deal with and incredibly helpful.

If possible, I'd give this place 6 stars!

50th Anniversary Celebration with our family

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place for a get-away family vacation! We had 16 and had plenty of room and everything necessary furnished in the home for our stay. The kids enjoyed the front yard and also everyone made the trip down to the lake for lots of swimming (except grandma and grandpa) :) It is rare that we all get together as our sons live in different states and one in Europe. It was a precious time together.

Long Weekend at Cumberland

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at this lake house! The house is huge, offering plenty of space for a group to share and have both personal space and room to spend time together.

The view and fire pit are fantastic!

The path to the lake was pretty rough, but the other reviews already cover that. We planned to leave our boat anchored in the cove below the house, but several in our group could not handle the walk, so we abandoned this plan. After the first day, we just took the boat back to Lee's Ford Marina and left it there, driving back and forth by road.

The whole group enjoyed our stay and I would come back again if traveling with others who were more up to the walk down to the lake.

Just what we needed - All around

  • 5 of 5

We rented this home for Mothers' Day weekend. My wife and I have 10 kids and the kids and I wanted to do something great for Mom this year. After talking with my 2 oldest daughters, we decided a weekend getaway to the lake was the answer. Of course we needed something large enough for everybody, but we also didn't want to "break the bank." I feel like we were very fortunate to locate such a wonderful home. Our youngest is 6 and basically they are 2-ish years apart up to 22. Also, my mother came along, so we had a huge gang of a huge age span, but the house was perfect for everyone. My only regret about it is that we couldn't stay an entire week (which we hope to do in the future). But for the 2 days and nights there, we had all we could ask for. In fact, I didn't even "explore" the full extent of the house until the second day and then my comment was, "there's a whole other house over here!" when I went upstairs to check out the kids' accommodations. My mother is 77 and has bad knees, so the bedroom with private bath on the main level was perfect for her (Translated: Old folks, Come on!). My wife and I took the basement bedroom - King Size bed, private bath, private everything. And the kids (again, ages 6-22) had ALL KINDS of room to stretch out here and there mainly upstairs and there was no crowding, no cramping, and no complaining - a first by any standard! The view of the lake is wonderful! And although the house sits high up above the lake, I'm amazed at the modern and sturdy stairway all the way down to the little "beach" area. The drive to Lee's Ford Marina (with everything you need to make your lake vacation complete) is relatively short (although going TO the house you may think you are going a million miles from civilization!) and the little town of Nancy is even closer, so don't think you are cut-off from the world - unless you WANT to! Now, for the "technical" matters: Great communication from the owners; Great and smooth transaction of renting; Great and easy directions for how to leave the home to be ready for the cleaning crew - All-in-all GREAT - not a single complaint!
