Wonderful experience and owner!

  • 5 of 5

My review is more of the owner than the property itself, as we were offered a different property closer to our destination, which we accepted. Tanya was absolutely outstanding to work with! She provided us with all the information we needed, was immediately responsive and available to give us dinner recommendations or the location of the nearest grocery. Her home was immaculate and welcoming and was beyond our expectations. The entire experience was a wonderful one, and that's because this owner really cares about her renters. She has my very highest recommendation!! Thanks Tanya for a wonderful stay in your beautiful home!! We would rent from this owner again in a heartbeat!!

A fun few days at Kentucky Lake

  • 5 of 5

This was such an awesome place. We had everything we needed. Very spacious and close to golf courses, shopping and restaurants. Nice dock just not right behind the house, but easy to get to. I highly recommend it.

The walk to the lake was longer than "lake view" indicated.

  • 4 of 5

The house itself was very nice. We had a couple of problems, but the owner took care of them.

Awesome extended family vacation

  • 4 of 5

These pictures don't do accurately show how open, spacious and roomy this place is!

A huge kitchen with plenty of cabinet space, large island that connext the living area to the kitchen and huge table that sat 6 adults and 3 children for all of our meals.

Tanya is readily available and lives down the road, should you desire anything. Short walk to the dock provided us with plenty of memories. Fishing with Pap, having coffee while the kids did creative writing and drawing, watching turtles, tieing the boat off and an awesome cove closeby for calmer waters to tow a tube, wake board or just enjoy our inflatables.

Nice balcony to enjoy the morning view of the lake and plenty of kitchenware, coffee pots, pans, towels.

Rooms are open and spacious, with an entire 2 bedroom lower level that could essentially be it's own apartment with kitchen, dining, living room

Be sure to bring your own :

-Toilet paper

-Paper towels

-Handsoap- none there

-Charcoal / fire starter

-Dishwasher detergent

-Laundry detergent

We would love to return to this lake again. Bring plenty of bug spray and sunscreen because you will love being outdoor's here.

Nice house. Open flow between kitchen, living & dining rooms made it great for our large group.

  • 5 of 5

Nicely appointed. Very spacious. Well maintained. Had an issue with non-functioning dishwasher& some burned out light bulbs, which owner took care of promptly. Would definitely rent again.

Good property for a large group!

  • 4 of 5

Our family gathered in Kentucky with eight adults and two small children. The house's space worked out well for us, it was nicely furnished and decently supplied. Tanya was easy to work with and always answered questions in a timely manner. The view of the water was pretty to look at and we had no problem walking to the water's edge.

We were somewhat disappointed that the outside areas were not cleaned up in anyway. We had to take a broom to the doors and handles just to get through them. We also changed meal plans because cleaning the grill would have been more work than we wanted to take on. I understand it's hard keeping outside areas clean from dirt and bugs, but knowing of our arrival, we expected them to be usable.

A few suggestions: list on your site that the house has a high chair and pack-n-play available. Although we didn't ask if these were would have been nice to leave them at home. Also, a couple suggestions for the kitchen...a griddle and a pizza cutter.

Overall, we had a good time together in this house and it was a good experience.
