'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. The address for the home is Gilbertsville, KY and it is located on Little Bear Bay just north of Big Bear Bay.
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.
