About The Owner

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.

The Owner purchased this cottage in 1993

Why The Owner chose Kentucky

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.

Beautiful property.

  • 5 of 5

A lovely, relaxing, comfortable cabin featuring a wide porch with a spectacular view of the lake. Everything we wanted plus the occasional deer wandering over. Quiet and peaceful. The owners were very friendly and helpful.

We loved it and will come back again. Only issues was the toilet. Way to close to the walls for tall people. All in all we have a wonderful 3 day stay.

Nice views peaceful

  • 4 of 5

The cottage was sufficient for us for our two night stay. Location was very peaceful. Paul greeted us upon arrival and was very nice.

My only complaint would be small bed, both are full size we are used to a king this is just a preference thing though. All and all the lake was great and we had a good stay.

This lake house is not for a large get together. This is a small cottage with a septic system. Max occupancy is 4 persons, extra charges may be imposed.
This cottage is located on a Corp of Engineer flood control lake, which means the water level is dropped after Oct. 15th to a winter pool level and they start raising the level on March 15th of every year. Depending on the rainfall in our watershed area will determine the lake levels.
