Accommodating groups small or large, this lakefront getaway is a perfect retreat
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).

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.

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.
Beautiful and spacious home
Great place for a weekend getaway with family and friends!
So happy you enjoyed your stay! Thank you for leaving the house clean and in good condition. You are welcome to book again in the future with a 10% discount for your positive review.
Will book again!
Great accommodations, location and amenities. We will definitely book again!
We had a large group for my best friends bachelorette party. When we found out we were going to have a couple extra girls, Karen was amazing to help make sure we had sleeping arrangements. With a group of 15, we didn't feel cramped at all. There is also a little cabin right next door for additional pricing if needed. The house feels more like a cabin inside and clean! The drive had us worried we were in the wrong place because it's at the end of a gravel road, but the location was perfect! We didn't feel like we would be a bother to any neighbors and a relaxing back porch setting. We had a few issues come up which Karen took care of while we were on the lake like replacing the refrigerator and switching our food over for us! She was quick to respond to any questions I had before, during, and even after our stay.
We rented boats from Conley bottom which was only a 20 minute drive tops. Everything worked out perfect for our weekend.
Simply could not have asked for a better experience! This was my first time using VRBO and definitely didn't let me down.
Thank you, Krystal! It was truly a pleasure to provide lodging for your group, who left the house very clean after your stay, and you were very patient and understanding when the issues came up. We just follow a policy of "treat others as you want to be treated" and everything works out well for everyone in the end! I hope you all will book with us in the future!
