This rustic lakefront home offers soaring ceilings and is perfect for families of any size. With enough sleep space to accommodate up to 12 guests, no one needs to be left out! If extra space is needed, a 1 bedroom 1 bath cabin, The Hunni Hut, sits a few steps away and can comfortably sleep 5 people and is available for an additional fee. You could host your family reunion here, or enjoy a quiet weekend for two or any group size in between with privacy, proximity to the lake, and a myriad of wildlife. Since we are pet lovers and owners, we understand that some of you may want to bring your fur babies along. We have a fenced back yard to allow them to run and they are welcome for an additional pet deposit. Down a quiet gravel road, you will enjoy peace and quiet, or time to catch up on some readings, or take a walk in the woods to discover the nearby caves and streams and waterfalls. Located 10 minutes from major boat docks in either direction, and 15 minutes in either direction from the towns of Somerset and Monticello, you have convenience while maintaining the feeling of being remote- perfect for a relaxing vacation. We are flexible to work with your schedule as well, so whether you have a night, a weekend, a week or longer to stay, as long as we're available, you are welcome!

About Karen M Hunnicutt
We are a family that loves our LAKE TIME! We purchased this house in anticipation of building our dream home on a lot on the next point. As we made plans to build, we stumbled on a house that we fell in LOVE with, and ended up leaving this charming lake home sooner than we expected. We love the Hunni House and want to keep it in the family for many years to come. Because of this goal, we decided to "share" it with others while we don't need it ourselves so that other families can enjoy the charming, rustic, private retreat that our family loves about the Hunni House. We converted a storage shed into a cozy 1 bd cabin for extra space, so if your group is larger than 12-14, ask about renting out The Hunni Hut to accommodate extra guests (sleeps 4-6).
Karen M Hunnicutt purchased this House in 2014
Why Karen M Hunnicutt chose Monticello
Not only can it accommodate large groups/families, the privacy and location make it a wonderful choice! Located at the end of a gravel road, the point location is breathtaking in the Spring and Fall, and you get "peek a boo" views of the water in the summer. Nearby caves and waterfalls adds an element of "adventure" to this location as well. We've furnished this House with all the comforts of home and we are accommodating to family members of all ages and species (we know fur babies count)! Located equal distance between Somerset and Monticello (15 minutes either direction), and 10 minutes from major boat docks, it's convenient as well as private.
What makes this House unique
I fell in love with the soaring pine ceilings and wood beams that were cut from the very property upon which the house sits! Surrounded by beautiful maple trees, red buds and fruit trees, you have the beauty of nature, wildlife (squirrels, eagles, owls, foxes and the occasional bobcat) which provides a perfect setting for relaxation.

Plenty of privacy
We had a great time staying at this house. Loved the layout with plenty of room for everyone! The deck was very nice and the kids enjoyed making Smores with the fire pit every night.
Beautiful and comfortable lake home
My friends and I had a great weekend stay at Karen's lake home. Any questions or issues we had come up, she was quick to solve/answer.
Would definitely stay again!
Great house on Lake Cumberland!
Very spacious for our 10 person family! The deck is awesome. The house had every cooking appliance you could need (crock pot, microwave, blender, toaster, coffee pot, etc.)
It was a nice experience staying in this house.
Overall it was a pleasant experience
This is a great cabin for a family
This cabin has a great layout for a couple of families to share. The loft area and bunk room are perfect for kids and there are 3 rooms with doors good for adults (king, double, 2 twins). There are 3 1/2 baths which was ample. Our group of 10 fit very comfortably-6 kids, 4 adults. It is located out of the way, in the middle of the woods. There a some state parks in the area. You can see the river water through the trees, but not a full view. The yard area is fairly steep, no flat areas. The back porch area is very nice. It is an older cabin with updates, so it has an older feel. The lighting in most of the rooms is not very good. The owner was very responsive with any questions we had. It worked great for us.
House was fantastic. Amenities abound
We had a great experience. The place was large and close to the lake. Everyone had their own space. Great attention to detail. I would not hesitate to rent again... Only a little longer next time.
