About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths. Check out our new listing, VRBO 1002480.

Our private home (not a part of Shawnee Bay Resort) is located on Kentucky Lake and is overlooking the water. It is a 3 bedroom, 2 bath home with floor to ceiling windows overlooking the water. There is over 1,000 ft of deck space for entertaining and just a short (approximately 125 ft) walk to the water. All bedrooms have televisions and DVD players. The master bedroom is equipped with it's own bathroom with tub, king size bed and has a 42 inch plasma TV with surround sound and DVD player. The second bedroom has a queen bed and a 42 inch plasma TV with DVD player. The third bedroom has a queen bed with a 32 inch TV and a DVD player.

Kentucky Lake is about being outside, we are a MOSQUITO FREE lake house, our home is treated throughout the year by MOSQUITO AUTHORITY and they guarantee a mosquito free environment. If you see a mosquito while you are on our property call us and Mosquito Authority will come a treat the area again.

We only rent weekly from Saturday to Saturday from Memorial Day week to Labor Day week. The cost is $1,800.00 a week plus taxes and fees; however, we charge $2,100.00 during holiday weeks. During the off season we have a 3 night minimum at $250.00 per night plus taxes and $100.00 cleaning fee.

The living room, dining room and kitchen are all open to one another and is a great place for the whole family. The dining room table is massive enough to accommodate everyone staying at the house and a couple more that may be stopping by for dinner (at least ten).

We understand that at night you might be ready for a movie, so the living room is equipped with a 50 inch 1080p Samsung TV and Samsung Blue Ray surround system. There are over 100 movies in the DVD library. If you like, the system will allow you to log onto your Netflix account and rent a movie that way. If you want to listen to music just connect your Ipod to the surround sound or turn on one of the digital music channels.

House is equipped with wireless cable internet, so for those who need the internet, we have it at no additional charge.

The kitchen is equipped with everything you need for cooking for the whole gang. Pots, pans, griddle, plates, coffee maker, toaster, etc...

The deck (over 1000 sq ft) is outfitted with two patio sets and seating runs the entire length of the deck. A charcoal grill is supplied. This overlooks the water and is the best seat in the house.

We have a 20ft Bentley tritoon boat that is also available to rent. We can only rent the boat for your full stay, please ask about it if you are interested. You are not going to find a nicer boat for rent on KY Lake. HOWEVER, we have two rental houses, so it may be rented by the other property.

Cleanliness is our number one priority. This house is professionally cleaned after every stay, no matter how short.

We only do weekly rentals in the summer and holiday weeks (Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day)

About Carla Bridges

My husband and I purchased the home along with our daughter and son-in-law. All of us live and work only minutes away.

Carla Bridges purchased this house in 2010

Why Carla Bridges chose Benton

All of us grew up in the area and have always dreamed of owning a home on the water. While my husband enjoys fishing and our son-in-law, wakeboarding, my daughter and I simply enjoy the atmosphere here. The view is beautiful and there are always fun activities in the area. Although it is somewhat remote, there is plenty of shopping and restaurants only minutes away. My personal favorite is a pontoon ride just before dark. All of us enjoy traveling, but haven't seen anything prettier than the view from our lake home.

What makes this house unique

The main thing I enjoy about the house is the one-level open floor plan and the large deck which gives access to the lakefront view from every angle. When we have guests, everyone is able to be in the same room or on the deck comfortably. However, there is privacy in the bedrooms where everyone can watch their own TV or even turn in early because it is extremely quiet here. Not only outside, but inside noises such as heat/air, appliances, and plumbing are quiet as well.

Guestbook comments from the manager

The Bayside at Shawnee Bay on Kentucky Lake

Beautiful home - really liked the sky lights throughout -with great lake view off large deck covered by big shade trees. Most relaxing vacation we've had in years - enjoyed the lake, beautiful sunny weather, grilling, sipping coffee on the deck in the mornings and watching the world wake up. Thank you Carla and Randy - a big thumbs up! We'll be back with more family and friends!

Perfect home for our needs

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. My young boys (3 & 9) and husband and I brought our boat down to stay a little over a week. My husband loved the covered dock with power for our boat. We loved the floor to ceiling picture windows with a gorgeous view of the lake. The house had everything we needed to be comfortable. We loved it so much here that we already booked it for our trip next year!

Our second time here

  • 5 of 5

We love staying at the Bayside for Spring break. This was our second time staying here. The owners are very accommodating. The renovations are very nice. Our family of 6 (kids ages 5 months-age 11) fit very comfortably. The location is perfect. It's not a far drive to anything you need yet still feels very secluded. We saw deer roaming through the yard every day.The kids love fishing off the pier. If the weather is yucky it's still nice and cozy in the house.

Since we had a small baby with us this year, mom and baby spent a lot of time at the house doing some baking while the older kids went fishing with dad. Having use of the washer and dryer makes things very convenient when fishing weather is wet. We love it here, and cannot wait to come back again. Thanks for a wonderful stay.

we really enjoyed our stay. It was like we had the woods and Lake all to ourselves,

  • 4 of 5

It was a great and spacious place . Warm and inviting. Plenty of space and the lake was awesome. I wish we could have got the fireplace to work . A booklet on how to lite and operate along with TV .The master bedroom needs the mattress replaced as it was soiled and worn and not very cozy like the rest of the place . I would visit again if the linens are upgraded along with the mattress. It was a great place over all. I feel when you pay that much a night some things are just expected. The check in and out was a breeze . Thanks for sharing your lovely home .

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you could not get the gas fireplace to work, if you would have contacted us about it, we would have helped you. The master bedroom mattress is not even two years old and it should have had an encasement like all of our mattresses. HOWEVER, the entire home is being remodeled currently. We will have all new floors, cabinets, paint, counter tops new bedding, and we are updating a the plasma tvs to LEDs.

What a Great Kentucky Lake Stay Place

  • 5 of 5

Two couples just spent six days at this Kentucky Lake Home and loved it!. The home was just perfect for us. Everything was clean. The kitchen was well equipped with all we needed. The walk to the lake was concreted and very nice. We were able to fish off the dock as much as we wanted. It was just a good quiet place to relax and enjoy the week and watch the squirrels and deer play.

Nice Getaway

  • 5 of 5

I found the house to be clean, well stocked, comfortable, and did not have the feel of a rental house. Everything worked as it should, including the WiFi. Can't comment on the television service/reception since it was barely used. The dock was easily accessible. The lake water level was down and it was unseasonably warm, so the fishing was limited to Bluegill. The Bluegill were microscopic in size and proved themselves to be accomplished bait thieves, but were fun to catch anyway. Deer were plentiful at dusk and birds made their presence known at an indecent hour each morning.

One caveat: The house is private, but it is part of a lake community. You will hear the sounds of human activity, i.e., boats, kids playing in the water, etc. This is part of life on the lake and is perfectly normal, but if you seek total solitude, there may be better options.

One major plus is that the house is convenient to the outside world. There is a combination restaurant/grocery/fishing shop known as "Fast Eddy's" that is within 3-4 miles of the house on Highway 68. The town of Benton is within 10 miles or so and offers restaurants and shopping. Paducah is considerably bigger and is approximately 30 miles away. Lots and lots of recreational areas within easy driving distance of the house. There are several self-serve firewood stands in proximity to the house that provide good quality seasoned firewood. $20 will buy enough firewood to keep the fire pit going at a robust clip for three or four nights. The fire pit is terrific for roasting hot dogs and marshmallows or serving as a backdrop to relaxing conversations.

All in all, I was favorably impressed and will rent again in the future. My compliments to the owners for providing an excellent property at a fair price.

Car: recommended

Kentucky Lake is one of the largest lakes in North America and also one of the best for water sports and fishing. Kentucky Lake is also just 30 minutes from Paducah KY.
