About Paulor Mary Jo

We moved here in 1982 and bought the cottage in 1993 . Some friends convinced us to fix it up and share our paradise. We have enjoyed many years of renting to fantastic people who come to have a good time. It also helps us to realize how lucky we are to live here.

We are usually nearby if you need something or we will give you total privacy.

Why Paulor Mary Jo chose Mammoth Cave

Beautiful views, close to lake and most everyone you meet are so very friendly.

Edmonson county still does not have a single stoplight, I love that fact!

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet starry skies at night

Many different varieties of wildlife and birds can be seen sitting on the porch. Or a short gentle walk to the lake with your fishing pole just might catch your own lunch.

Romantic cabin on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

It's all about that amazing rap around porch! Waking up to the sunrise peaking through our bedroom window was a perfect start to our day! Simply sitting on the porch listening to the birds and enjoying a cup of coffee was exactly what this couple needed. We had a blast playing all the board games offered. Our hosts were incredibley gracious! My husband forgot his fishing pole and they quickly offered to loan us one of there own. The house is stocked with endless reading material and brochures of the surrounding areas. We will definitely return!

Excellent getaway for a few days!

  • 5 of 5

This lake cabin was just what we needed to get away from the hustle and bustle of work and town for a few days to relax and enjoy the peace and quiet of the scenic Nolin Lake and the surrounding woods. The cabin itself was so adequately equipped that we really didn't need to bring a thing except our own food; everything else was furnished. The beds were so comfortable, the appliances were great, the furniture was great, and the cabin was very easy to find. I hope to make it back again next year.

A beautiful cabin inside and out

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of four adults and had a wonderful stay here. Very relaxing reading a book on the large porch while watching the boats on the lake. Enjoyed seeing the geese , finches and humming birds . Riding a ferry boat to see the Mammoth Cave was unusual for us ad fun.
