About the property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

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 bedroom with a 32 inch TV and a DVD player, Playstation 2 and multiple games.

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. After your stay, we are sure that you will want to call Mosquito Authority and have your own home treated. You can reach Mosquito Authority at 800-709-1190 or on their website at

We only rent weekly from Saturday to Saturday from Memorial Day week to Labor Day week.

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.

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

If you would like info about the area you should check out the Marshall County Tourism website, download the Iphone App called Kentucky Lake or check out our Facebook Page. Please note that we only do weekly rentals in the summer and holiday weeks (Memorial Day, Fourth of July, and Labor Day)

About The Owner

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

The Owner purchased this house in 2010

Why The Owner chose Kentucky Lake

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!

Very nice vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

My wife, sister, brother-in-law, and I really enjoyed this beautiful house for a fall "fishing" trip. Everything we needed from the house, deck, boat dock, to the fire pit provided a wonderful experience. The views are terrific from the family kitchen and the deck. The house is well cared for. The dock is easy to access from the house on the concrete walkway. The owners have a mosquito service that makes the outdoors very pleasant; we spent every evening at the fire pit before retiring for the day. It is definitely a place we would like to return to sometime.

Wonderful family vacation spot!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to have our first family vacation with our adult children and new granddaughter and this was the perfect home to pick! We had never been to the area and were so happy with how beautiful the lake, land, and scenery were, and to top it off with such a beautiful home to use as our base was wonderful.

We would recommend renting their boat, so easy to use, and so convenient. Easy to get to the dock since there is a concrete sidewalk. One day had sunrise, brunch, afternoon and sunset cruises! Marina was close to get gas and other supplies for boating. Groceries just a short 15 minute drive to town.

Sister in law and her family came later in the week staying at the resort next door. Couldn't have been more convenient for us to hang together.

We are already talking about next year! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home!😎

Lovely home - great location!

  • 5 of 5

I would most definitely recommend renting this home - very, very nice and the kitchen was well stocked. We spent several evenings on the beautiful deck - gorgeous view of the lake! We also rented the pontoon boat and having the boat dock was most convenient. Owners were a pleasure to work with - we will definitely be coming back!

Great home

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a great weekend at this home. Beautiful location on the lake, with great views. Lots of birds in the woods around the house, in a quiet area. Saw deer in the evening. Fished and boated -- saw some BIG fish near the dock, but was not able to catch them (pike?).

This place has a great kitchen, well-stocked, and we did a lot of cooking. The large dining table is good for family meals, with a view of the lake. The rooms are quiet and the beds were fine. We would definitely go back there.

Great get away for spring break!

  • 5 of 5

Our family really enjoyed the creature comforts and coziness of this cabin. The gas fireplace was great for taking the chill out of the air in the mornings, as we were there in March. The concrete walkway to the dock was very convenient. We enjoyed the fire pit, and we were pleasantly surprised to see a pile of fire wood, ready to use. Joe was a pleasure to work with.

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.
