Benton cottage description

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.

              Year Purchased: 2010

              About the owner: 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.

              Why the Owner Chose Benton:
              Our families have been coming to Kentucky Lake for three generations. We wanted to invest in this property for the benefit of future generations. Kentucky Lake is a jewel for water sports, fishing, and cruising.

              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
              The beauty of nature on Jonathan Creek, and the time with family that is shared, offers peace and tranquility which will be remembered for many years. Kentucky Lake activities allow all ages from grandparents to babies to be a part of a family outing and participate in all the fun.
