About John Ray

I am a retired Army aviator who was looking for a retirement home.

John Ray purchased this house in 2011

Why John Ray chose Kentucky Lake

This property was selected after searching six lake locations in Tennessee, South Carolina, and Kentucky because of the friendliness of the people in the Kentucky Lake community and the peaceful location of the property while having the ease of access to major highways.

What makes this house unique

The back deck of this home and it's relaxing interior made this the home of our choice for a place to get away.

Home was in a nice location.

  • 2 of 5

The home sets on a beautiful location and is in a nice quite nook. The home itself needs some work. We arrived Thanksgiving evening and just really settled in and went to bed. The next day we found out that there was a major leak under the sink, the dishwasher didn't work. there where no lights in the kitchen that worked, the vent for the stove wasn't hooded up, there were several light bulbs throughout the house that didn't work and the master bath where the Jacuzzi tub was, we had to put a towel around the faucets to keep the water from running all over the floor. The outside of the home had empty bottles and other things around the back deck. The home needs to be keep up if it is going to be rented. I called the owner and he said that he just had the remodeled the kitchen and wasnt sure why nothing was working. I found the fuse box and the breakers was thrown and when the dishwasher started working the drain was not hooked up and it flooded the floor. I fixed the drain and cleaned up the mess.

Wasnt real happy about having to do all this on my down time and having 3 women in our group that wasnt happy didnt make me happy.

The home need some attention.

The master bathroom is extremely nice.

Great house for a family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this house. Four large bedrooms (two king beds, two queen beds) made plenty of room for all 7 of us. The two sunrooms were inviting and very useable. My son needed to do some business-related work while we were on vacation, and the home office made that very easy, too. Kentucky Lake in general, and the Jonathan Creek area in which this house is located, is very laid-back and slow-paced. Don't expect the big supermarket or mega-Walmart nearby; the restaurants are pretty much all mom-and-pop type. Everything was very much as described in the listing; we did have a water supply line on the toilet rupture during our stay, and the owner had it fixed the following morning - very responsive. All in all, we were very pleased with this house and would recommend it.
