As the owners of Look Out Lodge we take personal pride in making sure each guest has a memorable and relaxing stay. And the reviews from past guests hopefully show that we are sincere about the quality of our property being offered. Other comments that potential guests have inquired about was the accuracy of the posted pictures. Yes, they are very accurate, but point well taken and received. So we are now updating our photos every six months so folks know exactly what to expect before arriving. The current photos were taken in May 2015 during the owners Spring stay. Unfortunately, VRBO only allows 24 pictures, which we could have easily exceeded to show you more of what this property has to offer. But this gives you a good idea of what's in store when you and your guests arrive. The summer of 2015 is pretty much booked up, so be sure you book early for the dates you desire. We are always available by phone or e-mail with any questions you may have, so don't hesitate to contact us. We will respond to your inquiry within 12-hours or less and we love to interact with our future guests to be sure that Look-Out Lodge will accommodate your groups needs. For returning house guests you will see some noticeable additions that we have made in 2014 and 2015 to make LOL a more relaxing and entertaining stay for you and your guests.
Lake Cumberland is now at the peak water elevation and is expected to stay there according to the Corp of Army Engineers. So the unobstructed views of the lake from Look-Out Lodge are absolutely stupendous.
Look-Out Lodge has a total of 5 bedrooms; 4 1/2 bathrooms; 2 kitchens; great room and dining room on the main floor (3rd floor); a second living room & dining room on the 2nd floor as well as the recreation and game room on the 1st floor. For reservations for 8 persons or less we have the ability to rent down to 3 or 4 bedrooms without the additional living space or recreation room. Be sure to call or e-mail us about these reduced rates, as they are not published.
The game and recreation room and has been up-dated with new 18 inch floor tile and accent area rugs; new leather pit group and much more. The circular drive way has also been tiled to give it a great formal curb appeal. Most of our returning guests have really enjoyed the upgrades and the additions. But if you don't need all 5,000 + square feet of indoor space, we have the ability to rent down to 3 or 4 bedrooms at a reduced rate. However, this does not include the game and recreation room at those rates. Just e-mail or calls for these rates. Please note that we have a limit of 12-guests in total. This includes ALL children.
This is a four story log and stone home which has a total of 5,275 sq. ft. of indoor living space and over 2,800 sq. ft. of wrap around porches on both the 2nd and 3rd floor. There is an additional court yard on the bottom level facing the lake with another private tiled patio with outdoor dining table and four dining swivel chairs with accessed through the recreation room or by the outdoor stairs case. The lake views from this patio are also breath taking. We would also include pictures of the vast balconies but we are limited on number of pictures we can post.
The lodge is fully equipped with more than the average rental property because it is also the owners vacation home. The owners have decorated each of the many rooms individually with fine detail to give a unique perspective to this log home. Each of the bedrooms have engraved suite names above the entrances to give it that "personal touch." Each year there are new features added to the lodge that repeat house guests will notice. The views of the lake and the surrounding vistas from the lodge will keep you outside more than inside. And don't worry if it rains. All of the balconies are covered so you can sit back, relax and enjoy. Not seen at any other rental cabins, this property has outdoor dining tables, bar seating table and chairs on each of the wrap around porches. There is additional casual seating all around the two decks consisting of rocking chairs and two double seated gliders, all crafted locally by the Amish community. There is also a double person hammock on a Viking stand on the main deck that has been a real hit with our guests. Whether your dining out, having drinks or just chilling out, the outdoor balconies are perfect any time of the day. Especially for bird and boat watching.
The recreation and game room is very well appointed for family fun. This is a 750 square foot room with 12 foot tall ceiling which is accented with 12 inch crown molding throughout along with two large picture windows which face Lake Cumberland. The game room is equipped with a standard 4X8 pool table; professional ping pong table; 7 foot air hockey table; professional darts; foosball and lounge area with a leather pit group; coffee table with a 42 inch wall mounted LED flat screen 'Smart' TV (WIFI included) and sound bar. This recreation room leads to the out-door patio area which has a 4 person outdoor dining table and swivel chairs which also faces the lake. Note: The recreation room is only available to a full house rental.
Look Out Lodge was constructed in January of 2007 by the current owners which is a full log home with stone accents on the exterior and a 27 foot tall stone wood burning fireplace in the Great Room. This property is located in a private gated community with paved streets and underground utilities surrounded by woods on one side and Lake Cumberland on the other. Look Out Lodge sits high on a bluff in the back end of a cul-de-sac which overlooks Lake Cumberland on the Wolf Creek section adjacent to where the original Alligator I Marina was located and across from Jabez Beach. This is the only home on this cul-de-sac which gives you complete privacy and seclusion, not to mention unlimited parking. The lodge also has a drive down and circular tiled drive-way and paver designed entrance, giving you a truly beautiful curb side appeal as you or your guests arrive. This property is fully landscaped with five retaining walls to the west, each with it's own landscaping character. I promise, you will not be disappointed as you and your guests arrive.
We invite you to see the lodge now by logging on to Look Out Lodge on Lake Cumberland website and see this for yourself at www.LakeCumberlandloghome.com for more information and pictures. It truly is a piece of heaven. We are also featured in the Russell County Tourism Board in the 2015 edition. Remember that we can taylor your budget needs depending on the number of guests in your party, with a LIMIT OF 12 GUESTS IN TOTAL, including all children.

This property is located within a gated community with paved roads and underground utilities. It's the perfect place for the kids to ride their bikes without the parents having to constantly supervise them. Since there is little, if no traffic within the community and the speed limit is 15 MPH there is little to worry about as they discover nature and the beauty of this community. And it's just perfect for that walk with the family before or after a meal.
Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: We actually live in South Florida, but fell in love with Lake Cumberland, which is why we decided to build this lodge. We just love the changing of the seasons and we come up any time we get a chance. In the mornings, we just love to sit on the deck enjoying our coffee and watch the morning fog roll in. Although we do love our winters in south Florida, we still have not gotten use to the winters in Kentucky.
Why the Owner Chose Russell Springs:
We built this custom lodge because of the spectacular unobstructed views of the lake and the security and seclusion in this private gated community. Plus this has one, if not the best, lake views of all the homes lots in this community. No need to crane your head to see the lake through the forest. It's right there in front of you. Pictures do not do it justice.
The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
Relaxing, walking, biking and just taking it all in. You have a tendency to forget to check your office e-mails as you just take it all in. Check out more photos on our personal website at www.LakeCumberlandLogHome.com.
