                      Very private area. Great for getting away from it all. Sleep in the

                      hammock on the dock. Float in the lake and sun or, if you bring your boat, enjoy boating and tubing/skiing on Jonathan Creek. Fall color is gorgeous. This house is surrounded by woods and is not in a subdivision. Paddle boat available for tenant use.

                      Other Activities: Boating/fishing (guides available nearby)/ hiking TVA lands around the house and Land Between the Lakes.

                      Golf: Many golf curses available nearby. Ky Dam golf course is a well maintained 18 hole course. Kenlake has a very nice 9 hole course. Miller Golf Course is operated by Murray State University and is excellent. There are many others available in the area.

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1998

                      About the owner: I grew up in Mayfield KY about 20 miles from the lake. I now liv n St Louis MO and I am a lawyer. We built this house so that we could visit our aging parents without the hassle of packing and unpacking all of the time. The house was built for us, not as an income property so it has many touches that other rental houses do not have - huge fireplace, oversized windows overlooking the lake, high end appliances, high ceilings, tall doors,maple and cherry floors in the bedrooms, cherry handrails, large yard (3+ acres) etc. After 3 of our parents died we no longer came to the lake as often but could not bear to sell the house where we had spent so much quality time and where our grandchildren had made so many memories. We decided to rent our house through Homeaway so that others could have great memories there as well.

                      Why the Owner Chose Benton:
                      Since we live in a large city, we wanted a place that was away from the hustle and bustle. We found that here. The house sits on 3 acres plus TVA land. We have deer and other wildlife everywhere. At night the stars are very bright and unobstructed by light pollution. You hear the sounds of nature instead of the rumble of cars.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      We love that you can see the lake from every room of the house. Even the bathrooms have views of the woods. Sitting on the deck at night with a fire or watching the moon rise over the lake is a priceless treat. Kids can play in the woods or yard and you do not have to worry about them. It is just a good place to be..
