Picturesque Grand Rivers: Grand Rivers is located between 218,000-acre Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley, the nation's largest man-made body of water. In 2009, Grand Rivers was named the 8th best small town in the South by Southern Living Magazine.
The cottage overlooks the Grand Rivers Walking Trail which runs under a large canopy of old growth hardwood beside the back part of Green Turtle Bay on Lake Barkley, which the locals refer to as Little Lake. Adjacent Little Lake Park offers a newly constructed children’s playground, free Saturday night concerts in the summer with live bands, and periodic outdoor festivals.
The cottage is a short walk to everything in Grand Rivers including Green Turtle Bay Marina & Lighthouse Landing Sailboat Marina (where motor boat, jet ski and sailboat rentals are available), Patti’s 1880s Settlement, the Branson-style Badget Village Playhouse Theater, Village Market & Café grocery store, antique and other retail stores and much more.

About Todd Thomason
I am the owner and developer of Little Lake Village subdivision in Grand Rivers, Kentucky. I also developed nearby Marina Village Condos. While I live in St. Louis with my wife and 2 daughters, I am a native of Western Kentucky and grew up bass fishing on Kentucky-Barkley Lake and duck hunting nearby. Many of my relatives are originally from and still live in the immediate area in and around Grand Rivers, so the location has special meaning to me and the whole Thomason family.
Todd Thomason purchased this Cottage in 2008
Why Todd Thomason chose Grand Rivers
I strongly prefer Grand Rivers as the small-town atmosphere and location on both lakes makes me feel like I am on vacation with most amenities that I need within walking distance of the lakehouse (several restaurants including 300 seat Patti's, antique shops, Branson style theater, grocery, bank, ice cream shop, boat rental, $1 million walking trail connecting both lakes, golf cart rental, golf carts are legal to be driven on public streets in Grand Rivers, park, summer concerts, etc.). My idea of relaxation and vacation is being at the lake with many activities to choose from both on the lake and off of the lake. Grand Rivers truly offers more to do and options than anywhere else on either Kentucky Lake or Lake Barkley in my opinion.
What makes this Cottage unique
This lakehouse is one of my personal vacation properties and has many developer upgraded features including two large suite style bedrooms, 12.5 foot vaulted ceiling, lots of windows, lots of trees and a beautiful covered porch.

Perfect for the "chicks of 66"
We had our 52nd class reunion in this cabin and found it to be perfect. The house was clean and stocked with everything we could possibly need. The check in and check out instructions were simple and easy to manage. The convenience of shopping, groceries and FOOD made it even more enjoyable.
We loved our stay. Everything was there that we needed. We were a group of 10 ladies there for a scrapbooking/quilting retreat. Wonderful stay. Looking at owners other house for next year's stay.
Perfect for a retreat atmosphere
Great property, and the owner was nice to work with. Perfect for a group or family gathering.
nice size nice location
The property is located close to town which we enjoyed very much. Could have used more toilet paper and paper towels. Also, there was no way to mash potatoes or mix them. Could have used a mixer. It was nice to have the entertainment package. The downstairs bedroom had a lot of ladybugs in it. Having the garage was great because it rained and it made it nice to unload and load the cars. It was easy to access so that also made it nice. Overall, we enjoyed our stay and felt that the house was just right for the 10 of us.
Excellent place to stay!!
We spent the weekend with our youth group planning for an upcoming camp. The house was perfect!! Very clean, everyone had their own space. Three nice bathrooms made showers easier. Kitchen was well stocked and great to use. Beds were VERY comfortable. Super easy to find and only a short distance from Patti’s (which we hope reopens soon.) our only recommendation would be to bring extra blankets for downstairs because the girls got a little chilly at night. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!
Great house, great location!
We absolutely loved our stay in Grand Rivers! The house was perfect for our crew. The kids loved the downstairs play room and my two year old daughter had a quiet place to nap upstairs. The kitchen had everything we needed and since it was so cold outside, having Netflix and other entertainment available was a huge plus! Our visit was over new years so most everything was closed, but we did visit the national park and drive through the Elk and Bison Prairie. Very beautiful!!
