tranquility on the shore

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at the Herrington Lake property. The view of the lake from the house is awesome! It was pretty cold when we were there so we didn't get a chance to sit outside and take advantage of the outdoor tables and chairs, but the opportunity is there to do that. We would definitely stay there again. Pam was GREAT to work with.

A nice place to escape to

  • 3 of 5

As a FFA advisor it is always a relief when I can find a decent place to keep all the students housed and entertained. They loved the dock, the fire pit in the back yard, and especially having a bed to themselves. Since renovation some of the window seals and ceilings in the bathroom have been effected by the moisture, but it was nothing harmful to my students. They enjoyed their time while in Kentucky, and we all laughed until we just about cried. Thanks for a nice place to stay.

Our stay at Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Me and 7 of my girlfriends stayed at Paradise a weekend in October. This home gave us everything we need and more. It was a little too cold to swim but we did go down and set on the dock and being close to the water was absolutely beautiful. We never left the property the whole weekend. I have told all my friends about this place and it's very affordable I would recommend it to anyone wanting to just get away for a weekend or a week. Can't wait to come back. My new best getaway. Thank you Libby

Wonderful Rental, Awesome customer care

  • 5 of 5

We are a large family (two adults with seven children). This cabin was perfect for our family. We rented it for two weeks and will be renting it again. I emailed Pam and received quick responses each time, and she was quick to remediate any issue. Appreciate the customer care. This cabin is located in a beautiful spot between Danville, Nicholasville, and Harrodsburg. You can find something to dò in any of these beautiful Kentucky cities. The lake is wonderful, and my kids loved the opportunity to swim in it. Thank you for a great experience.

Wonderful Porch and Lakeview

  • 3 of 5

The house is acceptable and is in a great location on the river. The screened in porch was wonderful and we enjoyed spending the mornings listening to the cows and looking out over the lake. We spent almost all our time out on the porch and had a nice time. It was very quiet and peaceful with a nice view of the lake especially from the screened in porch.

Sadly, this place gets a generous three stars because the house was very dirty when we arrived, the grill is next to useless, and the dock/path to the dock is in rough shape (I assume that's why there are no pictures of it).

When we arrived the kitchen counters were sticky, we had to wash all the dishes before we used them, hair in the bath tub, spoiled milk in the fridge, etc. To add salt to the wound there was a envelop on the coffee table asking to tip the maid. Overall, we had read previous reviews and brought our own grill and cleaned the house up quickly.

Finally, I did not like that the rental pricing just says "email for holiday rates." This makes me feel like they change on a whim depending on how desperate the person is. I was desperate and ended up paying 625 for those of you who are wondering what the "holiday rate" is; however, I would not pay that price again. The normal price is fair but be ready to ask for your cleaning fee back.

Hope this helps,
