Kentucky Cottage Rental Photos and Description

Cottage, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 7-8)

Great two-story lakefront home on Jonathan Creek – Whether it’s fishing, boating, partying, relaxing, or just enjoying time with family or old friends, you’ll find what you’re looking for here. It is situated on 1.5 acres with over 300 feet of shoreline. You’ll have the shared use of the owners’ dock.

This home is fully furnished with two bedrooms (one king bed & two twin beds), a full-bath, kitchen, dining area, and living room on the main floor. Downstairs there is one bedroom with bunk beds and a full-bath; a daybed, “coffee bar”, ping pong table, and laundry facilities. The downstairs opens onto a large outdoor patio/deck with a charcoal grill and picnic table. The view from the house is spectacular.

It is just minutes to one of nature’s best wildlife preserves and national recreation areas – U. S. Forest Service’s Land between the Lakes. Kentucky Lake is known for its crappie and bass fishing. It is home of the National Guard College Fishing finals and the National Finals for the FLW Bass tour. Boat rentals are available nearby. Kenlake State Park, located just a few miles away in Aurora, is home to the Hot August Blues Festival each year as well as other festivals and musical events. There are a number of restaurants within easy driving distance – everything from BBQ, delicious hamburgers, seafood, and fine dining.

The property is located on Jonathan Creek. Jonathan Creek is between Benton and Aurora off U.S. Hwy 68 and Oasis Road - 12 miles southeast of Draffenville, KY, 110 miles from Nashville, TN, and 210 miles from St. Louis, MO.

While bath towels are provided, please bring your own beach towels for personal use on the dock or in your boat.

It also should be noted that Marshall County is a 'dry' county. Adult beverages cannot be purchased locally - BYO.

About Judy Bowman

Our families own several cabins next to this property for personal use. We love family gatherings and lake activities. It's a place to kickback, relax, and leave the cares of city life behind.

We look forward to sharing our lake home with you.

Great Trip

  • 4 of 5

This was our 1st time staying at Ky Lake. We thoroughly enjoyed our time at “Lakeview.” The accommodations were perfect for our family of 4. The view was gorgeous from the dining room and patio. We were able to drop-in at the public boat launch (5 min Jet Ski trip) on the other side of the Jonathan Creek Bridge and tie up our PWCs to the house dock for the week. Jonathan’s creek was the perfect spot to pull a tube, knee board and wake board. Very calm water compared to trips to Osage beach. We spent several hours floating next to the dock every night. The kids caught several fish right off of the dock.

Great view & great choice!

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at KY Lake for several years in various houses, and this house was perfect for five guys with three trucks and bass boats. The view and location were great, parking was adequate for all of us, and the house was perfect for our stay. I would highly recommend this house and will consider it again for future stays!

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

After staying in motel type lodging for over 30 years, our fishing group decided to rent a house. We are very happy that we found this one. Great views of the lake and nature. We had wild turkey and deer standing in the back yard. Home was very clean and that at-home feeling. The kitchen was great. Our group likes to eat. Plenty of work space and all the tools to cook with. I would definitely recommend this house if you want a great stay in the Jonathan Creek area. By the way, we caught over 500 crappie while we were there. Can't wait for next year!!!!!

Perfect Lake Destination!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented this lake house for 2 weeks and it is a great destination for families with children, couples or small groups. My family enjoyed swimming off the boat dock, the ping pong table, the porch swing and simply reading a book on the porch in the peaceful setting. The house was very clean and well stocked. The greatest part of our trip was the neighbors - part of the owners family! Our children became fast friends, they invited us on daily tubing trips in their boat, swam with our children off the dock and we shared children on trips to the planetarium and Bilyeu's Dairy Dip. My children are hoping to return the same time next year!

Great Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy we booked this home. Great view, clean home, and enough room for kids to play. Judy made sure the home was kid safe ( she ensured there was a gate for the steps) and left a list of kid channels for the tv. The hill was steep but we all was able to make it up and down multiple times without issues ( even my two year old). Very easy to book and Judy was easy to work with. We will be renting again.

Awesome lake view!

  • 5 of 5

House is a waterfront view of KY lake. Absolutely beautiful. Judy was great to work with. She even warned us about some construction on the road to the house the night that we were arriving.

We had a few issues while at the house but Judy was right on top of it all.

We were able to have our boat docked at the house, which was very nice.

We visited Belews restaurant, which is an outside/carhop type establishment. They have great burgers and shakes. I highly recommend visiting once or twice during your stay.

Our stay was also during Hot August Blues festival and we went by water which is only 5-10 minute boat ride to Kenlake.

We will definetly stay in this house again.
