"My girlfriends and I, all in our 50s, absolutely adored this historic and charming house. It's roomy and comfortable, with plenty of space to spread out. We particularly enjoyed the spacious dining room, the relaxing living room, and the incredible porch! We had fun exploring the area, too (check out the dam at Kentucky Lake and the quilt museum in Paducah). Thanks again to the friendly, hospitable owners of this lovely home!"

"The pictures of this property just do NOT do it justice! Our family rented this house for a week over the 4th of July and it was perfect for what we were looking for. We had 6 adults and 2 children and it was MORE than enough room! The views were absolutely stunning and the house was fully furnished with everything we could need. The boat launch was super close to get to as well. The property can be a touch tricky to find since its back in the woods, but the locals are very friendly if you do end up lost! There is also a BEAUTIFUL pool area about 5 minutes from the house with an infinity pool overlooking the lake -- we ended up spending a lot of time there because it was so nice! The owners were super friendly and quick to respond to all of my questions as well. I would HIGHLY recommend this house and we are excited to rent it again for next year!"

"Our favorite pastimes are visiting new spots and revisiting our favorites. Our visit to this home has spoiled us for any place we’ll stay in the future.
We read the description and were sold. This place is even more enchanting than anticipated – the photos don’t convey just how wonderful it is. The genuine lake house feeling we were hoping for is exactly what we found here – down to earth, a very cozy and warm home, yet pristine and rich with fine points. The hosts clearly take what they do seriously and to the great benefit of their guests. The awareness of even the most subtle particulars delivers something rare.
Being closer to the water is impossible. We didn’t expect sun and mild temps for a January visit, but we had them. Looking out the windows we saw Bald Eagles soaring over that blue water right in front of the house throughout the day. My favorite happening – I was on one of the deck’s comfy chaises, soaking in the sun and being hypnotized by the ultimate view when a huge Bald Eagle landed in the branch of a tree about 35 feet from me - Amazing!! I got a couple of mind-blowing photos.
I could rave on about this wonderful place, but there are a few practical details to share – The trip into Murray is straightforward and not far. The Kroger is very nice. We were going to eat out one night, but once we got settled in we just couldn’t leave our private bliss.
So, on the day we departed we were sad to go. Our consolation was immediately reserving a stay for the coming summer. We are looking forward to making good use of that extra kitchen and spending the days on the dock’s sunny, swim platform with my sisters and their husbands!
It’s a challenge to put into words the long list of attributes and perks here that make this 6 Stars! A spell has been cast on us by this MAGICAL lake home!!
The summer cannot arrive too soon!!"

"This home is definitely five star and just as depicted. Becky and Paul take great care to ensure all the comforts and safety of home. The kids had a great time catching sunfish and other small fish. While we were all able to relax and enjoy a fabulous week at Lake Barkley. There was plenty to do in the area, too. We couldn't have asked for anything more in a vacation home. And, we definitely recommend it."
