"The cabin was very nicely appointed and clean. Everything about the cabin itself was exactly as described, if not nicer. Darra was friendly and helpful via email.
The reason for not calling this 5 stars was because of the description of the location and lake. The cabin is not secluded -- it is remote. We did not plan on a 10-15 minute drive to the main rode, then another 15 minutes to the nearest provisions (in this case, a Super Walmart). The main activity for our stay was to visit Mammoth Cave. As long as you understand that it is a bit more than an hour's drive away, you will be okay. We underestimated the time.
Also, we are definitely city folk. The lakefront is about 300 yards from the house. The path is pretty flat, but also needs to be cleared a bit of overgrowth. There is just a small spit of cleared space at the water's edge. I have small children and they did not feel comfortable swimming there.
This is a very nice cabin that is better for adults than kids, and better to stay hunkered down at rather than venturing off (unless you enjoy long drives -- then you're all set.)"

"The house and location (half way between my mom's house in Lexington and the stable where my daughter was riding for the month of June was excellent). We stayed for three weeks. The Rader's were very responsive to any issues or questions as they came up. We are staying here again for 3 weeks next June."

"Wow!! Thats all I could say after I walked into the house!! It's fabulous!! First, let me say this, Pat, who met us there to let us in is a dear!!! She even left us a little welcome gift of all the things we needed to make smores!! Very helpful!! My husband has a band," Dog House Kitchen", and they were invited to play at the Hot August Blues festival over at Kenlake State Park. It's a 3 hour ride for us from Louisville, so we decided to make a weekend of it and rent a home to stay in. Did we ever pick the right house!! There are bedrooms everywhere, even an amazing "kids" bunk room, complete with secret door!! Plenty of bathrooms. The screened in decks on the back of the house overlooking the lake are wonderful! There's more than enough tables and chairs ,porch swings, and rockers outside to seat everyone!! We spent most of our time there. There were 14 of there and not once did we feel crowded!! The house was exceptionally clean, very tidy, and very tastefully decorated. The kitchen!!! Oh my, it is a cooks dream!! We are a bunch of good cooks, and there was not one time we ever had to say "I wish they had this here!!" It's a very well stocked kitchen!! The newest addition to the house, The Hillbilly Shower!! was an instant hit!! Nothing like showering off outside in a very well made outside shower, complete with rain shower head. The driveway was awesome, plenty of parking spaces for all of us, and room to turn around!! This house is in the most serene setting, we all remarked at how quiet and peaceful it was . The fire pit was perfect...park benches all around, no one was left standing.. This by far is the best house we have ever rented..Thank you... And if the band gets down that way again, we will definitely be staying here again!!"

"Our family met here for baseball games...our family member pitches for the Lakewood BlueClaws and they were playing the Lexington Legends. Our party of 8 were able to spread out comfortably and then get together in several nicely appointed gathering places...the dining room....outdoors by the pool...a nice room with games provided. Our hosts were there to make sure we were taken care of."
