3 Bedrooms, 2 Full Bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, Sleeps 6
I grew up in Mayfield KY about 20 miles from the lake. I now live in St Louis MO. My husband and I built this house so that we could visit our aging parents without the hassle of packing and unpacking all of the time and with a view toward retiring there someday. The house was built for us, not as an income property so it has many touches that other available houses do not have - huge fireplace, oversized windows overlooking the lake, high end appliances, high ceilings, tall doors,maple and cherry floors in the bedrooms, cherry handrails, large yard (3+ acres) etc. After 3 of our parents died, we no longer came to the lake as often but could not bear to sell the house where we had spent so much quality time and where our grandchildren had made so many memories. We decided to rent our house through Homeaway to defray the cost of keeping our part time home and so that others could create great memories there as well.
Melinda purchased this House in 1998
Why Melinda chose Benton
Since we live in a large city, we wanted a place that was away from the hustle and bustle. We found that here. The house sits on 3 acres plus TVA land. We have deer and other wildlife everywhere. At night the stars are very bright and unobstructed by light pollution. You hear the sounds of nature instead of the rumble of cars.
What makes this House unique
We love that you can see the lake from every room of the house. It just embraces the lake. Additionally the bathrooms have views of the woods. Sitting on the deck at night with a fire or watching the moon rise over the lake is a priceless treat. Kids can play in the woods or yard and you do not have to worry about them. It is just a good place to be..

Beautiful property that my family truly enjoyed. We had everything we needed to cook and clean up. Dock was well equipped to sit and enjoy the water.
We are glad you enjoyed your stay. The dock is a wonderful place to relax, fish, visit and enjoy nature, especially the waterfowl and eagles.
We really enjoyed our stay. Caught a few fish! What a view. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
Melinda’s home was beautiful. The view is stunning and the House was better than expected.
This was the perfect home for a weekend away. Thank you!
Beautiful relaxing home on Kentucky lake. Our family of 4 adults 2 children and dog felt at home.
Melinda had Christmas lights on the fire hearth which was such a nice touch during the holidays. We really enjoyed our stay and hope to stay again soon.
Beautiful and Peaceful
The home and rural setting is absolutely stunning! I would highly recommend this home to couples or families to enjoy. The home has many of the very things that we enjoy in our very own homes. We saw a family of deer nearly every morning. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us and many other families. May God bless you and your family.
We enjoy the deer too. As fall and winter approach we are also seeing white pelicans and the eagles are hunting in the bay. There is beauty in every season here.
Beautiful, comfortable home with an incredible view of the lake. Loved the private dock!
This is our 2nd stay here and we love this house. It’s clean and beautiful. We didn’t want to leave! Well furnished and the kitchen is very nice, supplied with everything we needed to cook all our meals.
Very private area. Great for getting away from it all. Sleep in the
hammock on the dock. Float in the lake and sun or, if you bring your boat, enjoy boating and tubing/skiing on Jonathan Creek. Fall color is gorgeous. This house is surrounded by woods and is not in a subdivision. Two kayaks available for tenant use. The house is on Jonathan Creek which is one of the large bays of Kentucky Lake, one of the largest manmade lakes in the world.
Other Activities: Boating/fishing (guides available nearby)/ hiking TVA lands around the house and Land Between the Lakes.
Golf: Many golf curses available nearby. Ky Dam golf course is a well maintained 18 hole course. Kenlake has a very nice 9 hole course. Miller Golf Course is operated by Murray State University and is excellent. There are many others available in the area.
