About the Property

Great Lakefront Cabin with Spectacular Views, Firepits, a Private Dock, & Boats

Located at mile marker 87 on the main channel of the Tennessee River/Kentucky Lake, this charming lakefront cottage has 2 bedrooms, one bathroom, a large deck, screened porch, large private dock and a boatslip. Although it seems larger due to its design, the cottage is 800 sf, not counting the 10' X 20' screened porch, or over 600 sf of deck space, or the nearly 1000 sf of private dock. It also has a patio with comfortable seating, a charcoal grill and a firepit. There's another firepit at the shoreline in front of the cottage. Included in the price is your daylight use (weatherpermitting) of the 17' aluminum canoe, two kayaks, and a 11' aluminum pontoon pedal boat. We also provide lifejackets and the paddles. The master bedroom has a comfortable queen-size bed, fullsize futon, dresser, wardrobe, 32" hdtv, dvd player, nightstands, lamps, and an electric fireplace with heat and realistic looking flames. The 2nd bedroom features 2 twinsize beds and a 20' flatscreen tv with dvd player. One loveseat in the livingroom has a pull out twinsize bed in it. The livingroom also has a leather loveseat, an oversized super-comfortable leather easychair with ottoman, a glider rocker with glider ottoman, and an electric fireplace with heat and realistic looking flames. The 32" livingroom HDTV has a direct TV satellite receiver with several premium movie channels such as the Disney channel, HBO, Cinemax, The Movie Channel, Showtime, etc. The bathroom has a tub/shower combo, hairdryer and has plenty of plush towels and plush wash cloths. The kitchen has an island cooktop, oven, microwave, refrigerator/freezer, and is fully equiped with dishes, glasses, cups, pots, pans, skillets, a toaster, blender, deep-fryer, serving bowls, and more. With the exception of the bathroom, every room in the cottage has a great view of the lake and a door going out onto the deck. Please note: the cottage doesn't have an automatic dishwasher or washer/dryer. This is a seasonal rental available to guests from May through October of each year. The maximum occupancy is 6 people allowed on the premises at any time. No pets are allowed on the premises. No smoking and no vaping is allowed in the cottage.

This lakefront cottage is located in the countryside approximately a fifteen minute drive from Waverly (and 15 minutes from the nearest Walmart, gas stations, restaurants, hospital, etc.) and about a 90 minute drive from Nashville. Richland Harbor is generally a nice quiet lakefront community. The area is noted for it's great fishing and boating. The cottage faces west for the perfect sunset viewing. While other lakefront houses are located nearby, the lake lots here are large and provide each home a significant amount of privacy. The owners of the cottage live in the adjacent lakehouse . There is a public forest at the end of the lane, just half a mile from the cottage, providing a great place for hiking or 4-wheeling. Examples of wildlife we often see here: eagles, hawks, owls, herons, white pelicans, seagulls, loons, canadian geese, ducks, foxes, river otters, squirrels, chipmonks, deer, turtles, lots of colorful song birds and more. It's amazing to sit on the deck and watch these birds and animals. The large herons have wingspans which are over six feet, and the bald eagle's wingspans are over seven feet, and even larger are the white pelicans passing through in the fall and spring which have wingspans up to ten feet.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: We've lived here at the lake for several years in the house next door to The Lake Cottage and think it's the best place on the planet. We love the peace and quiet and enjoy watching the herons fishing along the shore and listening to the song birds and lake loons, seeing the eagles soaring above, and the squirrels and foxes scurrying pass. Plenty of migrating birds also stop in for a while such as seagulls, pelicans, several kinds of ducks, geese, and others. We also love watching the tug boats, barges, all kinds of other boats and yachts, and the occasional paddle-wheeler or ship pass by. While every season of the year has it's own benefits and pleasures, the trees in bloom in the springtime, the summer is great, of course, but we love it here in the fall best. The crisp cool nights, a warm fire in a fire pit, the hot chocolate, the amazing colors of the changing leaves, the migrating birds, the squirrels gathering acorns, the parade of boats and yachts passing by heading south for the winter, taking a walk down the country lane and enjoying the peace and serenity of the lake. We love it here!

Why the Owner Chose Waverly, TN, USA:
Lakefront homes here rarely come on the market. When this one did, we thought it might be great for our kids and grandkids to have a place near us when they come to stay at the lake for a while as well as a way to share the wonders of the area with other folks and pick up a little additional income in the process. There are only ten lakefront homes on the main channel here on this side of the bay all located on a quaint country lane. This is a nice quiet community in one of the most beautiful areas of the huge lake. Kentucky Lake is the largest man-made lake east of the Mississippi River when measured by surface acres: 184 miles long, 2 miles wide where we live, 160,309 surface acres, and with 2,380 miles of shoreline. Within sight of this lake cottage are several uninhabited islands about a mile away. Also, if you have an ATV, bring it & check out the trails in the forest at the end of the lane. About a mile from the cottage by water there is a small marina in the bay with a restaurant, convenience store, and fuel.

The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
Welcome to Paradise! Just sit on the deck or screened porch or on the patio and listen to the birds singing and the waves lapping along the shore while looking out over the lake. Watch the eagles soaring, the pearl divers sorting bags of muscles, the boats zipping across the water. Or wander down the path a few feet to your very own private dock in front of the cottage with it's pier and large covered boat slip, it's floating platform for sunning, fishing, swimming, or just sitting and relaxing. There's no high pressure or rushing about here. No place you've got to be. Just enjoying nature at it's best. Also on your dock is a canoe, 2 kayaks, and a paddleboat for your daytime use (weatherpermitting). Lifejackets are also on hand. Explore or fish the nearby waters along the shoreline, or in the bays. Explore the shoreline and pick up a few seashells (or are they called lake shells?). Take a quiet walk down the country lane and enjoy the view and observe the birds, plants, and animals. Or just sit on the deck and enjoy watching the birds visiting the birdfeeders or hummingbirds zipping around. In the evenings, stop everything, get your favorite beverage, sit back, and experience one of the most amazing sunsets you've ever witnessed. As darkness approachs, lay in the hammock on the front deck and check out the billions of stars up above or weatherpermitting, light a fire in one of the two firepits and roast some marshmellows and hot dogs or fire up the grill and cook something really special. p.s. On the 4th of July, weatherpermitting, fireworks can be seen from your dock in multiple locations around the lake. Welcome to Paradise!
