About Chris & Angie

My wife & I have searched high & low for a lake front cottage for years & recently found this wonderful cottage & we are excited to share this with others who love to relax & enjoy the outdoors. We also enjoy kayaking, backpacking, bicycling & traveling.

Chris & Angie purchased this cottage in 2017

Why Chris & Angie chose Crittenden

When arriving here, it's like a switch being flipped & stepping out of the often too busy, everyday society & into a 100% relaxed, stress free world. The drive here is beautiful countryside with traditional large working farms, historical markers as well as local vineyards.

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet Hidden Gem

We had a lovely week and enjoyed your cabin on the lake! We Loved drinking coffee every morning on the porch, enjoying Gods beauty! The Kids Loved kayaking across the lake. This lovely house is peaceful and serene and still close enough to enjoy the wonderful attractions such as the Creation Museum , Ark Encounter, Kentucky Horse Farms & Big Bone Lick S.P. Thanks for all the special touches!! We will be recommending this to family & friends.

Great property. Very relaxing watching fish jump & turtles in lake

  • 5 of 5

Stocked with the basics. Great view. Nice rockers on porch. Located between Creation Museum & Ark Encounter. Nice stopping point for us heading to Lake Michigan. Verona Angilio Pizza is nice, reasonable prices & large menu selection. Would definitely stay again for a longer visit. Bring your fishing poles!! Thank you for the lovely spot.

Exactly What I Wanted

  • 5 of 5

The cottage was exactly as advertised, the surroundings were perfect and the relaxation I got was just what I needed.

My two brothers and I planned a trip to the Ark Encounter and wanted a place to relax for a long weekend. Lamders Lake House fit the bill. Chris, one of the owners, was very accommodating and the detailed driving instructions complete with landmarks allowed us to arrive without a hitch. Great place to sit by the lake and have a fire every evening.

Awesome place to get away from it all. Quiet, peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

Our family enjoyed the kayaks! First time the 4 of us have kayaked together. Loved waking up early, watching sun rise, sipping coffee, hearing the crickets and roosters. Great to be able to be able to have food delivered!

Would note that there are 2 Alexander Roads off of 491. The owner was quick to respond when were confused on directions. The roads was tricky, but doable with our minivan.

Would definitely come back!!! Thank you!

This place delivered more than promised. The house has every amenity we needed, including the butter that we forgot to pick up. The beds are comfortable, the kitchen is fully furnished, and the time spent on the porch was awesome. Kayaking was enjoyable and relaxing. We would recommend this house to anyone wanting to get away from the hustle and still have all the comforts.

cozy and charming, perfect for a quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

We will definitely book here again! The kayaks are fun to paddle the calm water, the kitchen is well-equipped, and the porch is a perfect spot for coffee and a book or for visiting. What a sweet view!

Yes, you need to drive carefully on the gravel road. But I found the place easily using the directions provided by the property owners and I drove a car (not a truck) without incident.

We emailed a question during our stay and the Landers family responded promptly.

Landers Lakehouse feels remote enough and is a 15-minute drive from major groceries.

Really, this is a great place!
