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.

Very nice clean cottage with exceptional view of the lake

  • 4 of 5

Great little cottage that is tucked away with excellent view of the lake. The cottage was clean and has everything you need. Paul was very responsive with questions prior to our arrival and he and Mary Jo came to introduce themselves and make sure our stay was what we expected. I'll be renting this again

Wonderful weekend.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful relaxing weekend prior to the big solar eclipse of 2017. Nolin River Lake is beautiful in the summer. The Reinecke's cabin is a quaint 2-bedroom, very well maintained, with a large porch out front for relaxing. The A/C was a welcome relief but we still spent most of the days on the porch and dock. Thanks to Paul and Mary Jo for such a nice visit. The eclipse was just a few miles south and was the perfect end to a relaxing weekend.

Go ahead and reserve this.

  • 5 of 5

This place had everything we needed, we LOVED it. Was close to Mammoth Cave, very relaxing, and I do want to come again. When we do, I would love to bring a couple kayaks down or a boat as they have a boat slip.

In addition, everything was very clean and tidy, all pots and pans were provided, which was very nice. The owners met us and showed us the place and let us know where to grocery shop and other helpful hints to the area, was very welcoming, nice and helpful!

Amazing hosts who thought of everything

  • 5 of 5

The Reineke lake cottage is quaint and lovely. Has it all. Disappointed to find the ferry to cross the green river under construction which makes the trip to Mammoth NP longer.

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.
