Recent Kentucky Lake property reviews

  • Large Family Reunion

    "Nice place. Great location. On lake. Best private boat dock I've ever seen. The property is older and could use some tender loving care. But it is huge with lots of places to sleep and even more spots to put air mattresses and floors beds."

  • Great Location and Comfortable Home

    "Let me first say I could not have found a better choice in such short timing. There were no major problems and we had a great time. With that said, I do have a few comments: What I liked- Great view! Just the right amount of seclusion. Easy access for unloading and loading vehicles. Plenty of parking. Awesome dock. Beautiful Bay. I loved the Cedar Beams and Large Windows. Only 17 mins. away from Wal-mart and 6 mins. away from convenient store. Nice bathrooms - Very clean and lots of ceramic tile. Great vacation atmosphere. Very nice people. Possible Improvements: 1) Beds are very soft. This can be good thing or bad. For me, not so good. 2) Guys... Fix the remotes. I am an engineer and it took several days to understand the TV setup in the living room. Instructions are unclear and inaccurate. IR sensors issues. 3) Beautiful view from the deck but it's about time to make some repairs. Weak boards, lots of wood bee holes, and need for weatherproofing or painting. 4) Pontoon was very fun but it seems to have a problem going over 40% throttle Surges. 5) Need to make removing spider webs around the dock part of the cleaning. Lots of trapped May flies. 6) Very limited cable TV. 7) No access to resort facilities. - Not a big issue for us. They actually let me use the ramp when one of our SeaDoos died on us. 8) The stated grill location policy seems to be a fire hazard. I would recommend getting it away from the siding and possibly off of the deck. 9) Bedrooms are small but this is offset by the huge greatroom. Overall: We had a great time with our week long vacation. The greatroom made it possible to entertain several additional friends and relatives. My comments are only to help the owners with potential improvements. I will definitely keep this place in mind next year. Thanks again for your hospitality. The Baldwin family."

  • Yet another time....

    "I'm sad to report I just returned from my 4th visit to the stone cottage on KY Lake....sad? Yes! I could have stayed another 8 days. Lovely as always...rained a bit, but that didn't keep us from enjoying bass fishing every day! Rain! I got my Toyota and my 2014 Skeeter FX20 stuck while parking my rig. Had to call a tow truck to get both out. My husband went to tell Pam and Paul that their pretty grass had a truck and boat stuck and had created a little mud...They immediately came to offer help. They were gracious and more concerned about my rig than the grass. Frank, Nashi (our little Shiba Inu) and I hope to go again. No need to write about the beautiful, well kept cabin. It is as described, but words really don't do justice to the quaint, comfortable home away from home! Boo! I miss it already."

    "Our little family of four stayed here Aug 5-15 2013. The house was everything that we expected it to be. I'm so glad that we didn't let the one bad review here persuade us to rent elsewhere. It almost did. Our vacation started out with a 6 hour drive turning into a 10 hour drive due to TWO flat tires! The 2nd flat happened after the hour when a service station was available to help us. The VRBO owners helped us by loaning us a tire and a rim overnight so that we wouldn't have to leave our boat on the side of the road. That alone gets them 5 stars! They awaited our arrival patiently and had us follow to the house so that we wouldn't get lost. Our Verizon 3g was spotty close to the house, but the VRBO owner has lamnated printed maps to Murray/New Conchord... once we went to town 1 time, we didn't need them. House had wi-fi, our devices accessed the net, got a Verizon signal at the south end of the porch, for calls and texts. Our 3G/4G devices worked once out of the dock about 100-150ft. My "NAVTRONICS" App was perfect for navigating the lake, & google to find places to go/eat, on the lake. The house DID NOT SMELL LIKE MOLD. We liked the "loft style" of the bedrooms being upstairs, it felt, "cabin-ish" while being a house! The steps are a bit steep, but we ran up and down them with no problem. Even our 3 year old. Covered dock was one of the best aspects of this property, for us in particular, as it rained everyday that we were there. Boat was dry every time we got in it, no matter how hard it poured. Our towels weren't even damp! The private inlet was PERFECT! You just don't get something like that with a VRBO usually. It is in great shape and has electric, which saved us, we had to charge our boat battery during our stay! After launching about 1/2m away (there's one closer, we chose the other), parked our trailer up by the road at what we thought looked like the back of the house (could park one vehicle). We used an access road to park our truck at what we thought looked like the front (facing the lake). We have a 4x4 so we had no problem pulling up the hill and parking right next to the front porch (even with all the rain). The front porch (facing the lake) was great for sitting outside, enjoying coffee, cocktails, and watching the kids. The kitchen is WELL stocked with cooking stuff. Didn't need a thing! This house was well worth what we paid and we didn't expect it to be something more than it was. My sleeping count was 9. 3 couples 3 individuals/kids."

Gilbertsville Travel Tips

Discover Kentucky Lake With Gilbertsville Vacation Rentals

Gilbertsville vacation rentals allow you the opportunity to stay at one of the towns located along the shore of Kentucky Lake, a man-made lake created with the completion of the Kentucky Dam. Encompassing over 160,000 acres of water, the lake offers plenty of fun activities for individuals, groups, and families. Whether you prefer to dash across the water on a Seadoo or laze the day away on a pontoon, you'll find the opportunity when you stay at vacation rentals in Gilbertsville.

Visit the Land Between Lakes When You Stay at Gilbertsville Lodging

Nestled between Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley, you'll find the Land Between Lakes. With its close proximity to Gilbertsville lodging, you can pack a picnic and head out for a day of hiking, biking, or hunting. If you like to fish, set your line for giant bass or crappie. Take advantage of your fully equipped kitchen to cook the catch of the day the way you like it. If you need supplies, stop in at Moors Marina or Kentucky Dam Marina.

Plan for Fun When You Book Kentucky Lake Houses

When you visit Gilbertsville, take advantage of Kentucky Lake houses, some of which offer beautiful views of the water. Aside from the lake, you can make memories in the surrounding area, which includes attractions like miniature golf, a rock quarry, go-karts, and a planetarium featuring Kentucky constellations. If you prefer a more challenging golf course, you're in luck—the area has two. Head into town to enjoy local musicians playing Bluegrass music or to browse the local shops for souvenirs. The area also host several historical attractions like museums. At the end of the day, return to your vacation rental in Gilbertsville and enjoy the sunset from your deck or the comfort of the backyard.
