Williamstown cottage description

Click 'Calendar' above to see availability.

Feel the hill country of Kentucky while you are really on beautiful Lake Williamstown in this rustic, yet functional cabin that sits among the tree tops. The cottage is on a quiet gravel road providing a great setting for morning or evening walks while often catching glimpses of deer, turkey, fox and even coyote.

Williamstown lake will surprise with its size and offers 350 surface acres of water with 32 miles of shoreline and has been named 'KY's Cleanest lake.' Truly this is not a tiny lake, plenty of room to boat and swim.

You will love the comfort of the cabin. Provided is a fully equipped kitchen, with everything you need, from a coffee maker, blender, to gas grill.

The deck, with a large picnic table, and sitting chairs, stays shaded well into the evening but the dock provides plenty of sun for those working on their tan. There is a view of the water from all points on the deck.

The water is less than 60 feet from the deck, with very manageable steps. We provide your own Dock to enjoy - it is private. There is swimming right off the dock with ladder for easy access to and from the water. The public boat ramp is conveniently less than 2 minutes from the cabin.

We have a row boat, canoe, life vests and cushions for those of us that enjoy a quieter and moderate pace ~ you are welcome to use those.

Also, there is a fire ring with benches outside (with some fire wood available). For those cool off-season evenings (autumn / winter),we have a gas burning fireplace in the cabin.

Just 10 minutes from town, are restaurants, shopping, hiking trails, Fri and Sat night concerts, skateboard park, and many other attractions. For more to do in the area look at our sites on Location Map and visit the Grant County tourism website.

Or, just relax in the cabin, and enjoy the quiet and serene setting of lake and woods. This Cottage has been restored and practically updated to enjoy the sense, feel and serene nature of the lake area while not sacrificing basic amenities that makes our stay both refreshing and rejuvenating.

This is a four room cottage with 2 Bedrooms, Bathroom and a Kitchen, Dining and Living room area that makes the place cozy and rustic. Between the woodwork and the sitting areas, there is plenty of down time, if needed, that can be provided within the cottage.

People have nicknamed the place, 'Sunset Cabin,' for the perfectly situated cottage that views the beautiful Kentucky sunsets. Several of our guests have kindly forwarded pictures that they have taken (on this website) and shared their experiences in our guest book. From touring, to fishing to just relaxing this place really provides a great leisure and respite.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2005

                  About the owner: The cottage transferred ownership recently from another family that has been going to the lake for well over 40 years. She, along with her siblings always would visit her grandparents on the lake. Now all these people and their respective families continue to come and stay at Williamstown Lake. They love the seasons there, the general tranquility, the water and the natural scenery that accompanies the Lake environment.

                  Why the Owner Chose Williamstown:
                  We looked high and low, East and West for a nice lake. A place where you could enjoy the surroundings, the water and a really nice cozy place to rest at the cottage. And location was a huge bonus after researching the lakes within an hour of Lexington, Louisville and Cincinnati, it made sense to choose Williamstown. Still close to all the big-city activities, yet quiet, wooded and still having the charm and enjoyment associated with a lake vacation. The Lake is Very clean (it is used as a reservoir), plenty of fish - with the famous tournament, plenty of wildlife in the area, that really rejuvenates the 'batteries' and provides the much needed rest and fun that we just never make the time to enjoy in our otherwise busy lives. The Cottage is very accessible and has all the amenities. In addition, the Oka's took the time to restore the cabin to an updated, comfortable and charming place to rest while continuing the rustic feel that a lakeside cottage should have. This particular cove on the lake has a unique vantage point for sunsets. Also, the dock area is easily accessible and fine place to swim. And it is in a quiet location on this lake with plenty of tree tops overhead to shade and is great. Cottage great to hole up in ... or ... Easy access to the dock and water! Also: Seasons to Visit Williamstown Lake Lodging - Fall, Winter, Spring ... Williamstown Lake attracts many visitors during the warmer summer months which run from April to October. The days are temperate and mild which makes outdoor exploring pleasurable. You can enjoy some time out on the lake boating or fishing or explore the River Valley Trail by bicycle or on horseback. The region enjoys a fair amount of sunshine although seasonal rainstorms do occur. In the winter time the Lake area is transformed the occasional snowfalls and below freezing temperatures - great to huddle up in front of the fireplace. Great and Fun to visit for all the Seasons !!!

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                  The people here and those that visit love the fun and relaxation that is enjoyed at the lake. Overview of Williamstown Lake area: Williamstown Lake is a place to enjoy the outdoors. People that love exploring wide open spaces and nature trails will feel right at home with all the activities available. The region has a strong cowboy tradition and rodeos are often held in season. It is a place where you can explore at your own pace and enjoy a wide variety of outdoor activities. It is an ideal destination for families if you want to introduce your kids to the outdoors and get them to develop an interest and love for nature. There is a fair amount of wildlife that roams freely through the area. Bird watchers can see wide variety of species by simply following some of the nature trails through the region. The river and lake host many species of waterfowl. It is also a place where photographers can get some fantastic shoots and artists have come to put it all to canvas.
