Enjoy 1,200 sq ft of awesome home on the trout filled Cumberland River. We are about 5 miles down river from Burkesville and 38 miles downstream from Cumberland Lake. Twenty minutes from Sulphur Springs-Dale Hollow, thrity minutes from Wolf Creek Dam and Hatchery Creek. The house is Victorian on the outside and cabin on the inside. The upstairs has a loft with a futon and Fly tying desk, upstairs bedroom has a queen bed and a pullout couch, shower and laundry. Downstairs Bedroom is a double bed, pullout couch and Full bath. The living room has a pullout couch and two oversized chairs surrounding the fireplace. My wife decorated this and I will tell you if you like fishing you will love this place. There is a front porch and back deck overlooking the river and a small herb and vegetable garden to use. There is also a fully stocked fly tying bench if you would like to create the next great Cumberland striper fly. This is our future retirement home and has everything you will possibly need. Its not a party place so if you and friends are looking for place to let it rip this is not a good choice. There is a fire pit down by the river and another below the deck you can use for cookouts over a fire or a charcoal grill on the deck, horseshoe pit and Picnic table down by the river. Cards, cribbage, corn hole, crokinole and a dartboard if you like games. AC, Heat, Galley Kitchen, indoor fireplace, washer/dryer, sheets, pillows and towels. There is also wifi, Internet TV ROKU and plenty of DVD movies. You can use the boat ramp that adjoins the property it is a community ramp that we maintain. There may be some locals fishing down there and thats ok, most of them have become freinds. You won't see the boat activity down here that you see in the first 15 miles down from Wolf Creek Dam, six boats a day is a lot. This a great base camp for large trout, striper and walleye. We love to fish and occasionally we keep one for the pan. Our freezer is not filled with fish and we prefer like minded people. The river is coming back from the construction project and the fishing is getting better and better. You are also most likely to meet Bruno & Tigger, local dogs that spend more time at our house than at their own home up on the hill. They are great dogs, love treats, being talked to and petted. Tigger is a little shy. As you may have figured out we are pet lovers. If you want to bring your animals its ok with us. There is cat box in the upstairs bathroom closet and a dog crate downstairs. Just bring food. If the dogs are going to be left behind and may ruin something please crate them. There is no smoking or vaping in the house. If you need to smoke do it outside and please don't leave butts in the grass or fire pit. If you have questions call me.

About Gregg Markowski
We are Gregg & Gaylene. Currently living in Indianapolis with a dog named Packer and a sister and brother combo of kittens we rescued from a fire ( Ember and Lucky ). We love to fly fish and enjoy going to "Fish Camp". We hope you enjoy it as much as we do.
Gregg Markowski purchased this Cabin in 2016
Why Gregg Markowski chose Burkesville
We looked for a long time for a property on a trophy trout water. Initially we bought the 3.5 acres up on the hill then 8.5 acres with a dream to build a house. Then through happenstance discovered this house was possibly for sale and bought it. The three pieces now comprise Riverbrook Farm our slice of Heaven.
What makes this Cabin unique
We love sitting on the back porch and watching the river go by or waving to the fisherman. There is a bounty of wildlife here. We see river otters, mink, beaver, muskrat, deer and bald eagles...ALL THE TIME!

This house is beautiful and stocked with all the staples. Plus, the view from it's many large windows is amazing!
Even though it was secluded, we had no trouble finding it nor did we have any interruption in internet or roku service.
Two of our fur babies accompanied us and being able to bring them along was refreshing. They loved being able to run and play in the big yard and down by the river.
Also, while we were there we saw several wild turkeys, deer footprints by the river and heard the sounds of cattle and coyote in the distance. We also enjoyed watching the hummingbirds right off of the large deck. Wish we could’ve stayed longer.
We loved this home and working with the owners. Gregg was quick with a reply to any questions we had.
We were looking for a place to get away from it all and this beautiful home was the perfect answer. It was so tranquil.
After our five day stay, we left feeling refreshed and plan to go back again as soon as we get the chance.
Thank you, Gregg and Gaylene for making your home available!
