An office is located off the great room that is equipped with a computer, monitor, and printer and offers a view of the rear deck and the lake. Relax in the spacious front sunroom and watch the birds in the English garden.

Lake watchers will enjoy the view from either the back sunroom, the living room, dining room, or the rear deck. The house sits on 1.25 acres on a dead end street and has a circular driveway with ample parking. This house is located .2 mile from the Jonathan Creek boat ramp and has a covered dock with two bays and a fish cleaning station. The bays are large enough to accommodate fishing, pleasure, or pontoon boats, swimming, fishing, and non-covered tie up areas for one or two boats.

This home features a beautiful, well furnished kitchen with a dining table that seats up to six with additional seating for four at the hi-top bar in the rear sunroom. The family room area has a leather sofa, 55 inch big screen TV, surround sound, X-Box 360 with Kinect, MP3 dock, and a wood burning fireplace. Wi-Fi is throughout the house.

The formal dining room, with seating for 6, provides a beautiful view of the lightly wooded back yard and the lake. The formal living room provides seating for eight and is a wonderful place to settle in with a good book or have a conversation away from the noise of a full house or quiet place to observe the lake.

The three bedrooms on the main level include the master bedroom which has a king size bed, 32 inch TV and a separate tiled bath, Jacuzzi tub, and separate shower with three shower heads. Located off the master bedroom is the washer/dryer. The second bedroom includes a queen bed with 32 inch TV.

Two ottoman/ twin hide a beds provide sleeping space for two additional guests. Each bedroom has a double closet or walk-in closet.
The basement area also contains the pool room and a game table. Assorted electronic games and board games are provided for those times that you want a break from the lake.

The rear deck, new in 2012, provides an excellent view of sunsets, an observation point for the lake and the wildlife in the community. During your stay you will have use of a four burner gas grill for your cookouts, ample deck seating for dining and a small firepit on the lower deck for those evening outdoor moments. A larger fire pit is located along the path to the lake.

                15 of us spent a week at Mr. Ray's home to celebrate our parents' 50th Wedding Anniversary. What a fabulous week! The home was very spacious, the kitchen well stocked with everything we needed, and we all enjoyed the beautiful deck and large dock. We had a few minor issues during the week and they were quickly rectified by Mr. Ray and his contracted maintenance person. We spent the week fishing, swimming, boating, playing games and just relaxing. 15 of us (ranging in age from 4-74) had a fantastic time and are looking forward to doing it again next summer.

                This is a great house to rent! Lots of room, plenty of beds and in a great location on the lake! There is also a new big deck on the back which was great for sitting outdoors and there was enough room to play bags / corn hole on the deck! Two families stayed for a week and we had a great time! Also - very nice boat dock....great place to bring your boat! Everything you need was provided! Owner is a great host!

                Our yearly summer fishing trip to Kentucky Lake worked out very well at this home. There is plenty of room for ourselves and three adult children and spouses and grandchild. Grilling and cooking worked out well as well as going to the handy restaurants. The dock for boats is wonderful for fishing and swimming. We did catch plenty of fish and some big ones that were thrilling to get in. It was a wonderful week and as usual we hated to leave Kentucky Lake.

                My family takes an annual trip to Kentucky Lake for fishing and a little r&r. The house was by far the nicest place we have stayed . The location was perfect and the attached dock was fantastic. Fishing was not great, but everything else was perfect. John has done an awesome job of setting the house up and is a very honest person to deal with. The property was gorgeuos and the location is ideal for lake use. We trully loved our stay and will definitel try to use in the future. Thank you John for sharing your beautiful home with us!!

                My family has been gathering in a central spot to celebrate Christmas to accomodate those in Georgia and those in Illinois. We have stayed at 4 different homes over the years and this was by far the most well appointed space we stayed in. Every detail was covered from paper products to spices! The extra living area was great for the kids to spread out and for us to play games. We cooked a nice meal and all ate comfortably at the dining room table. Thank you!

                I can't think of a better place to stay or of something that we needed and didn't have during our stay. Fully stocked kitchen, great space to spread out, it was all there. We would all highly recommend this home for your next vacation

                This wonderful vacation home had everything you could think of. My family was very comfortable and we had a wonderful relaxing lake side vacation. We brought our boat and it was awesome to walk down the hill to a private boat dock. The home was comfortable and you can tell the owners used a lot of tender loving care to maintain it.

                Just returned from a wonderful week at the awesome property. The house was everything we hoped for and a wonderful vacation spot for our family. We gathered for my husband's 60th birthday with 2 adult children, spouses, and 3 grandchildren. Plenty of room for everyone with the 4 bedrooms and two twin ottomans that could be used as well. The owner's generosity was evident with the little extras like soaps, shampoos, and mosquito repellent. Some areas of the house were somewhat secluded and perfect for the quiet time needed for naps or toddler time outs. The whole family enjoyed the movie selection and xbox dance party or sports games. We had two boats and the dock was wonderful with Jonathan Creek being a great location off the main lake. Our son-in-law fished every morning under the nearby bridge and we had fresh caught bass for dinner including an 18", 5 pounder. One consideration to keep in mind however is that the area does not sell or serve alcohol so if you like a glass of wine with dinner or something cold after a day in the sun, you will need to BYOB. The beautiful, relaxing setting is most conducive to eat in evenings as we didn't have much success with our restaurant search except one evening. Don't let that discourage you from this awesome opportunity, just plan accordingly!
