About the Property

Lake House w/ Private Dock, Fully Furnished, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, Sleeps 12

'Elbow Room' is the best description for the Kentucky Lake Hideaway!
We have done a number of updates including some furniture, paint, all new carpet except the basement and a new deck. We have more new pictures coming soon.
We have a favorite saying - If you are lucky enough to be at the lake, you are lucky enough!
This is our home. We feel very fortunate to have it and enjoy sharing all the relaxation, joy and memories that it brings to all that visit. We simply ask that you treat it as yours and respect and care for it as you would your own.
The property is on three acres of its own and is surrounded around the side and back with approximately another 40+ acres of undeveloped land allowing for plenty of elbow room for people and animals. There is much wildlife that calls the area home.
There are only three homes on our road and the other two homes are seldom used. We do have a wonderful neighbor across the draw who keeps an eye on things when we are not around.
Unlike a majority of the lake where there is a cliff or tons of stairs to climb, there is a gradual trail to our private boat dock with electricity, a fish cleaning station and a swim platform with chairs. For your enjoyment, we also have a scanoe which is a slightly wider, more stable style of canoe with two paddles that is kept down by the dock for our guests.
Our property is most of the way back in the bay so you have very little lake traffic with the exception of some skiing and tubing during the summer. We have year-round water at the dock. I have a deep-V fishing boat and even at winter pool we have enough water to use the dock. If you have always wished that you could enjoy the great fishing that happens through the fall, winter and early spring, drop your boat in the water when you arrive and take it out when you leave. Your getaway is much more enjoyable when you are not wrestling with putting the boat in and taking it out each day or paying extra to leave it at a marina.
If you enjoy fishing, you will enjoy your time here. Little Bear Creek is a very popular and productive fishing bay. It rates above most of the area scores in the TVA Sport Fishing Index Ratings for black bass, largemouth bass and white crappie. There is also great fishing for catfish in the entire bay. In the late spring and summer months the area is full of bluegill and sunfish. The yellow bass is a lesser known and sought after fish but one of my favorites for a fish dinner. While they may not be large, they are plentiful.
From the dock you can easily fish the immediate area, find a favorite spot on the main lake, take a quick trip down to Moors Marina or up to Kentucky Dam Marina, run across the lake to the canal, where the sauger and saugeye like to hang out, and into Lake Barkley or zip across the lake to the quarry or the rope swing. If you are in the mood for a longer sight seeing trip, you can enjoy the scenery all the way south into Tennessee. Land Between the Lakes offers many options for the outdoor enthusiast.
Come to the lake and enjoy the wildlife. There are always a lot of beautiful birds and waterfowl on the water. If its not too busy about the house the deer will be around and from spring through fall the humming birds will perform their impressive manuevers. Let the birds sing to you during the day and the frogs serenade you each evening.
We don't accept credit cards due to the expense. We simply have you mail a check(s). Please contact us for details and to make a reservation.
Have a great day.

Location

Located in Little Bear Creek Bay on Kentucky Lake. Little Bear is known as one of the best fishing areas on the lake.

While you are here you will have a deck with a gas grill, a covered boat dock with electricity and a swim platform.

You are close to all that Land Between the Lakes (LBL) has to offer. The activities in the area are almost limitless.

You are approximately 30 minutes from both Paducah and Murray. Murray is home to Murray State College and Paducah is famous for the quilt festival.

There are too many things to do and see to list. Come to explore or come to enjoy the peace and quiet.

If you are lucky enough to be at the lake, you are lucky enough!

 

Owner info

About the owner: This section is to be about the owner but really you are interested in my home and not me. What you need to know about me is that I searched for several years before purchasing this home. I love the home and the area. It is a very calming and relaxing place to enjoy life for whatever length of time you are here. It is peaceful and is not a party house or location. I enjoy sharing my home with friends and family but I do expect that you will respect and care for it during your stay.

Why the Owner Chose Gilbertsville, KY, USA:
This is one of the best locations on the lake. We searched for years before purchasing this property. We wanted a home that did not have that subdivision feel but rather the feel of freedom and space. While there are a couple of neighbors, there are not dozens of houses nor tons of docks and boat traffic. It was imperative that the property include a boat dock that you didn't have to go down dozens of stairs or a cliff to access and that it had year-round water. We feel very fortunate and hope that you enjoy the property as much as we enjoy it.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The house, the property and the entire region have a relaxing, magical potion that just makes you feel good. Take a moment to smell the roses as they say and listen to the birds and the frogs. Watch all the wildlife, the herons fishing along the banks, the eagles and hawks circling above and the honking of the geese. While you feel like you have certainly 'gotten away' from it all, you are still only minutes from most anything you might want or need. When you turn off Hwy 68 onto Moors Road to come to the house, be sure to stop at the produce stand and get fresh picked fruits, vegetables and great melons. Even when they are not there to man the stand, there is still produce from which to choose and a box where you can leave your payment. Yes, there are still places like this in the world. Come and enjoy.
