Murray house description

MAXIMUM OCCUPANCY OF THIS HOME IS 6 GUESTS.

New this season:
In addition to our Fishing / Ski Boat, We've launched our latest rental option, a 17' 2-Man, Smooth-Riding, Fuel-Efficient, Zodiac Rigid Inflatable Boat with 70HP engine. Guests may have these delivered to their dock with special rates established just for them.

With a total renovation complete, at 2450 square feet the home becomes the model for the optimum vacation experience in the area.

The façade of this ideally positioned, traditional lake home is a perfect melding of Craftsman Style with Cedar Shake. Before even stepping inside one first senses its richness. The unparalleled view of the lake and warmth of the natural red cedar says welcome. The exterior accents of stained glass windows and lighting with complementing colors, confirm the kind of quality that signals the start of a very special time away for family and friends is about to begin.

Its very close proximity and gentle slope to the water are not the only reasons it delivers such an unrivaled experience on the Lake. Outstanding features and an extraordinary location are factors contributing to its distinctive standing. Unlike the resorts and rental homes in crowded coves with heavy boat traffic to which so many visitors to Kentucky Lake have grown accustom, here is a vast, wide open, peaceful vista across the main lake of the Land Between the Lakes.

Once inside it takes just a glance out of any of the numerous windows and doors for guests to know they have the ultimate vantage point. From the main deck, hand laid stone patio, and rooms on both levels, visitors find their attention drawn to the pristine blue water. It is so close that when rising in the morning, dining throughout the day, or just relaxing, one is struck by the familiarity of taking in the view from the balcony of a cruise ship. In reality this view is from a homey three bedroom, two and a half bath escape.

Upstairs is one of the home's two kitchens. Spacious, well equipped with a walk-in pantry, stainless appliances, granite countertops, and an Italian tile floor. The kitchen joins the dining room with hardwood floors and a unique raised stone fireplace. The combination makes for a large friendly space where many great meals are enjoyed surrounded by walls of windows facing the lake.
It is hard to resist dining on the deck, however. From the branch of a surrounding tree a Bald Eagle may preside over a meal or casual break, but he is just part of the attraction. There is also the advantage of being even closer to the water and nature. A wonderfully calm place to relax.
Upstairs are found two bedrooms with lake views. One comfortably accommodates four with two full beds. Another has a queen bed, private half bath and its own large sliding glass door with direct access to the deck and the soothing lake view. The primary bathroom on this level is striking with an eight-foot, modern, custom designed shower stall, entirely clad in marine blue tile. It has a built in bench, shower heads at either end, body jets, and a large stained glass window created by a local artisan.

The downstairs is reached by a spiral staircase. Numerous windows ensure the lake continues to be the focus. Here, the master bedroom features sliding glass doors with a direct prospect of the lake. Its occupants may choose to step out onto the patio sitting area or remain in the comfort of their queen bed to find themselves inspired by the captivating morning sunrise, promising the perfect start to the day. One wall with interior arts & crafts style stained glass windows adds a dramatic architectural detail. This accommodation has access to a walk-in closet with a front-loading washer and dryer, as well as a full bath.
The main living space looks out on the water – the smallest of needs have been considered and met here. An eight-foot granite bar and an additional full kitchen outfitted with cherry-wood cabinets and stainless appliances provide all of the tools needed to entertain on the lower level with ease - it is the backdrop to the living room. Furnished with a great arrangement of comfortable seating – here is an area ideal for a special reunion that will remain etched in the minds of all who attend.

Carefree waterfront living was the objective when the home's deluxe, covered dock was selected:
The Fishing Possibilities at the dock are exceptional with a great population of bluegill, bass, crappie, and catfish.
As for the Access - Here there is no steep slope or long trek to your boat. Being only seventy feet away, step out the door and be on the dock in a minute or less. In two minutes you can be at the concrete boat launch.
Coverage and Quality are Redefined – Equipped with an attractive and highly functional hip roof, superior protection from the elements is ensured. It has one 24 foot covered slip and enough additional parking for Two Cruisers. Not only is the aluminum decking non-slip, but it is splinter free. There is electricity for charging trolling motors.
Then, there is the Relaxation & Recreation – If after a day out you return full of the sense that exploring and playing on the lake can be both fun and hard work, here is the place to reflect on the day you have had and contemplate tomorrow’s plans. This is not just a location to store your boat and gain direct access to the lake. If you are not planning to bring a boat this visit, having a 12x28 swim platform complete with a retractable ladder makes this the spot to share a fun and rejuvenating break lounging, sunbathing or swimming.

A Boat Rental on the Property: A 115 horsepower, ski/ fishing boat is available to guests at special rates. It is one more convenience, and can add hours to vacation time on Kentucky Lake. There is no drive to and from a marina to collect and return a boat. For a rental over multiple days how great it is to have the driving completely eliminated. Imagine instead the pleasure of a sunrise breakfast ending seamlessly with a stroll across the lawn to board the boat that awaits you at your private dock. Effortlessy, straight from the comfort of your home, a day on the lake begins.

                  Owner info

                  Why the Owner Chose Murray:
                  Having been raised on Kentucky Lake I can’t imagine life anywhere else. I don’t take for granted how fortunate I am. Now sharing all the lake offers with others is extremely rewarding for us. Hearing from first time visitors that Kentucky Lake is so much more than they imagined it would be makes having developed our properties all worth while. After completing several projects, both commercial and residential, my interest in architecture is combined with that of assuring a great vacation.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  From the ground up there’s an emphasis that comes naturally on making sure our accommodations be of a quality not found in rental homes in the area, and that the features compliment this exceptional property and location. Whether it’s a unique attribute incorporated in the structural design or a special element that creates an unexpected convenience, making it unforgettable is the priority. With my wife Pam having had a 20 year career in the luxury hotel & resort industry she lends a professional touch. As a Director for North America & Europe she lead a talented team overseeing Sales, Marketing and PR for many of the finest accommodations in the world. Her knowledge is on a global scale from a wide array of 5-star themes. She visited renowned properties and met with clients on frequent around the world trips working in the U.S., Canada, the Caribbean & Bahamas, Mexico, and numerous countries in Europe, the U.K., Asia, South East Asia, Australia, French Polynesia, and South America. She ensures a consistent commitment to the principles that keep our customers returning. Pam approaches each guest’s visit with the dedication she did as she helped cultivate standards that would exceed the expectations of dignitaries and celebrities alike.
