About the property

Words or pictures will not do justice to what has to be one of the best lake houses on lake Cumberland. Breathtaking lake views from upper and lower decks, water views from almost every room in the house including master bedroom. This will make your lake Cumberland vacation one to remember. This lake house has had every inch of every room meticulously redone with new paint, new floors, and new bathrooms.

The lake house consists of four large bedrooms, one king and four queen beds with three full baths. The master bedroom with it’s king size poster bed, and large tiled shower is only outdone by the spectacular lake view from your large bedroom window. Also on this main level are two more bedrooms with queen sized sleigh beds, with all new high end furnishings to make your lake Cumberland vacation perfect. The main floor living space is open concept which includes a breakfast nook, kitchen, dining room, and great room which will make the gathering of family and friends even more special with the best lake views on lake Cumberland. Living room has two leather sofas surrounding the large 55 inch flat screen.

For more adult time, retire to the lower level bar lounge area, again with several comfortable sofas and a panoramic view of lake Cumberland from the four large windows. Or walk out to your deck and enjoy the wonderful sunsets, or watch the boats as they pass by just a few hundred feet away.

This is luxury lake living at it’s best. The lake house is one of the very few on lake Cumberland that has a paved path to the lake in it’s back yard. Yes it is an easy walk down to lake Cumberland, or put your boat in with easy access to the ramp. This lake house also known as the humming bird hideaway, will sleep 12 maximum.

Since the lake house is managed by golden pond resort, just 1.5 miles away, you will also have access to all of the facilities there. Amenities including the pool and tennis courts, as well as the horseshoes or corn hole, as well as the sandy volley ball court. And since it is managed by golden pond Resort, you can rest assured that it will be maintained to the highest standards.

Also to make your lake Cumberland vacation special, we are just minutes from the full service marina, where you can rent pontoons, jet skies. Or ski boats. As always, all of our property’s include all linens, towels and a fully stocked kitchen with all of the modern conveniences. Including full size stove, fridge, dishwasher, washer dryer, coffee pot, toaster, microwave and much more.

About Contact: Steve Allen

We live and work in the Dayton, Ohio area.

Why Contact: Steve Allen chose Monticello

We fell in love with this property while out on a bike ride. We were fortunate enough to view the home at the same time another buyer had come to view the property. We were able to purchase the home which had great bones, but needed a great deal of TLC. We are excited to have the renovations completed and be ready to have guests at Hummingbird Hideway aptly named as there are many hummingbirds that frequent the feeders.

A year prior to purchasing Hummingbird Hideaway we were fortunate enough to purchase our dream getaway. It is an 1800's cabin a couple of ridges away from the lake house. We fell in love with the cabin, our neighbors, and the area instantly. We find it difficult to leave our cabin and go back to the hustle bustle of our daily lives. We decided to buy this property because we wanted our friends and family to have a place to stay and relax as we do at our cabin. The people of the Monticello area are loving, kind, and always have time to help another. We purchased this property because of the breathtaking views of the rock walls and of the lake...from Hummingbird Hideaway there is a panaramic view that is awe inspiring.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had four couples and 2 babies. We were all so excited to find such a spacious, clean, updated home. the layout was perfect for us. The deck and view were amazing!

Plus we had a ramp right here to launch our boat. We have been coming to Lake Cumberland for 19 years and my husband came as a child. Our 3 girls think this is the best place ever to vacation. We would definitely stay here again! Thank You so much.

Sibling Weekend

  • 5 of 5

The house was just what we needed to accommodate the couples. Great space to spend time together in one area and if needed we could also use the lower level area to watch tv. It was great to have the boat ramp around the corner to the house. We all had a great time and look forward to coming back in the future.

Nearly 100%

  • 4 of 5

We spent a long Thanksgiving week end with our 3 kids & their kids. We traveled from Indiana, Georgia, & North Carolina. The house accommodated all 10 of us very comfortably. With little ones in the group it was wonderful having a door at the top of the lower level stairway. Steve was Johnny on the spot, responding to my calls very quickly & courteously. I rated the house a 4 because there are a few issues that need some TLC. There is a broken board on the main level deck, we had a problem with some of the windows & the tub drained slowly. I mentioned these things to Steve on our last day. I'll bet he gets them fixed up. Thankful for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Susan Glad you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the couple of issues, the windows had been cleaned prior to your stay and the cleaning gal just did not snap them back in at the top, a very easy fix. Had you let me know at the time I could have taken care of that while you were there. And yes I will correct the other issues and thank you for letting me know. Steve Allen Golden Pond Resort manager

A wonderful lake view home.

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful lake view home.

The home was very clean and in excellent condition. The owners were very easy to deal with. The check in process took about five minutes, and we simply left the the key in the drop box. Normally, we don't rent a house until we can locate it on Google maps. I was unable to do that this time, but was presently surprised by the excellent location.

I enjoy stargazing. None of the neighbors are light polluters. You can easily see the Milky Way on a moonless night.

Many fun things to do in the area. Tennis court and swimming pool is available for your use nearby. Don't miss the marina. You can have lunch on the lake and / or rent a boat.

Coiple Great Retreat!!!!

  • 5 of 5

If you are looking for a spacious home with beautiful views and only steps away from the lake this is the place for you. First, let me say the photos for this home does not really depict how beautiful this home actually is. This home is situated right on Lake Cumberland, decorated beautifully, has high end finishings and furnishings and equipped with everything you need.

The master bedroom is very spacious and the bathroom is to die for. The second bedroom has a direct view of the lake from the bed; all you have to do is open the curtains. The third and fourth bedrooms are just as nice.

The kitchen has eveything you need and it accomodated all 8 of us comfortably. We did not leave the home for anything. The outside was very nice too we ate under the covered deck while enjoying the beautiful views.

We had an opportunity to meet the owners which then made sense about the love that is evident in every room in this home. They are very nice and very personable.

The men retreated to the lower level which was also very spacious. They really enjoyed their privacy away from the chatty women. Lol

Looking forward to booking a weekend in the summer.

exceeded expectations

  • 5 of 5

Rated five stars because: the accommodations space, amenities, and service exceeding our expectations. Manager & staff were great, responsive, attentive, friendly, without being intrusive. We highly recommend it all. We stayed in the largest unit for eight days with our three kids' families and really enjoyed the area. Fished the on-site pond (which needs restocking!), rented a pontoon boat for a day on big lake out of the nearby marina, visited the local winery (very nearby), shot off some fireworks, roasted marshmallows at the fire ring in the back yard, ..... on and on. We had a great time. Thank you, for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Thank You for your kind words, we do work hard at giving our guests the best possible accommodations possible. As for the pond, I did put 300 lbs. of catfish in there last year, guess that is why they call it fishing and not catching. try again next year. Thanks again. Steve Allen Golden Pond resort
