About Darlene Neeley
The Lighthouse is family owned and operated. We treat every customer like they were a part of our family. We live here in Byrdstown, so if you have any problems we can correct them immediately. We want your stay away from home to be GREAT! Enjoy your vacation on Beautiful Dale Hollow Lake. We moved here from the Cincinnati OH area to pursue retirement on Dale Hollow Lake! We bought our first house the Cowboy Inn in 2001. It was on a rental program until we retired here in 2005. We then bought another house and moved out of the Cowboy Inn so it could be put back on the rental program. We recently purchased the Lighthouse to add to our rentals. We love this area and all it has to offer and we love sharing this little piece of heaven with our guests. All of our children are grown with children of their own, but they enjoy spending time here on the lake. We are local residents. We retired here 12 years ago. This area is a little bit of heaven.
Darlene Neeley purchased this House in 2017
Why Darlene Neeley chose Pickett County
This cabin is in quiet, rural setting with very few full time residents. Located on the road that leads to Eagle's Cove Marina with little traffic. There is plenty of parking for cars, boats, and trailers. Easy access to two Marinas (Eagle's Cove and Starpoint). Sunset is within 15 miles.
What makes this House unique
There is a complete walk around covered deck for enjoying the quiet evenings. so even if it is raining you can enjoy being outside. There is one ceiling fan on the porch to help keep you cool in the summer.

Lighthouse Caps a Great Christmas Week
Excellent vacation home, super floor plan, three levels, all bedrooms on basement and upstairs level. In 12 degree Dec 26 weather, it did take a while for the heat pump to warm the basement up, however all worked out very well and the stay for us, four daughters, and husbands was very, very enjoyable. When in the area do not forget to dine at the Wildcat Den up the road toward Byrdstown proper.
Labor Day weekend family trip 2017
The cabin met our needs and was nice overall especially upstairs. Downstairs not quite so nice and huge spiders crawling around. Some improvements need made and the first one is WiFi is needed especially since service was so bad for nearly every cellphone carrier. Hot tub was never hot for more than ten minutes and then never heated up to anything over bathtub temperature. My granddaughter has Cf and could have really used the heated tub and jets to help her. Others were looking forward to the tub as well but sadly disappointed simply by the lack of it being "hot". Lastly - there is a definite odor going to the basement and this should or could be alleviated with something to at least make the air smell better.
Im rating it three out of 5 and probably it could be a 5 with a few extra touches!
We are very sorry you were not pleased. We do want to thank you for choosing our home for you family trip. We just had the Lighthouse Inn sprayed the week before your arrival, so we are really surprised there were spiders inside. We will have sprayed again. We are not able to obtain just internet in rentals and the cost for the service would raise the rental cost (It cost $79 a month for phone and internet, year round, even when no one is there. We are a vacation rental, therefore there is not always someone staying with us). Cell signal is not perfect there or anywhere in our general location, other than Verizon. We are local, if you would have contacted us we could have tried to resolve the hot tub issue. It is probably a blown circuit, which would be an easy fix and will be fixed today.
When we purchased the home, this year, the downstairs was just a basement, we added the living area. We will do our best to eliminate the "basement" smell.
We have removed the old cabinets that were at the bottom of the stairs, we believe they were holding dampness and causing the "basement" smell to be worse.
Again we are very sorry your stay was not what you anticipated.
The Perfect Family Getaway
Our journey to find a safe, quiet haven during the solar eclipse led us to Lighthouse Inn. This gem housed our three families: one family of four with a 7th grader and 4th grader, one family of four with a 15 & 14 year old and, my family of seven with 5 children ages 8, 6, 3, 3 and 7 months. There was more than enough space to accommodate us and allow for privacy. The huge wrap around porch provided endless entertainment, from deer watching to card playing at night, to bug collecting to hammock swinging. The older children hardly emerged from the basement where they mastered their pool game on the tiny pool table. We only had a couple of questions/needs during our stay which Jeff and Darlene promptly replied to and helped resolve. They were so kind and friendly!!! They even pointed us in the direction of two waterfall hikes (Cummins and Burgess Falls) that are a bucket list must! I would highly recommend a stay at the Lighthouse Inn.
We are happy you enjoyed the Lighthouse Inn and the area. We love this area, that is why we retired here!
We hope to see you again in the near future!
Jeff & Darlene
Excellent Propery! Definitely would recommend
This is our groups third timing vacation at Dale Hollow and the first time staying in this cabin. This cabin is a absolute wonderful place to stay! There is plenty of room to spread out and really relax from a busy work life! I'm hoping to be back next year for 2018 Dale Hollow vacation
Vey nice for large groups!
The pull around driveway was the best part. So nice for boaters. The renters provided everything needed, very comfortable.
So glad you had a wonderful vacation and yes the circle driveway is a definite plus!
Hope you get the opportunity to stay with us again. Fall is a beautiful time of the year, here on Dale Hollow Lake.
Thanks again for choosing us,
Darlene & Jeff
This house was absolutely perfect! So so close to the marina!! The pictures do not do this place justice! Way bigger than it looks! Rooms are very spacious, and kitchen is fully equipped!!! Perfect privacy for having fun outside while people inside were no lt bothered! Will come back again!
There are several wonderful waterfalls about an hour south of here you can can visit. Cordell Hull State Park is only about 4 miles from cabin, with a hiking trail and cave to explore.
