From the new kitchen appliances to the stand kitchen-aid mixer, this fully equipped kitchen allows you to cook as much, or as little as you desire. The dining room seats 8, but because of the floor-design, guests can easily converse with the guests seated at the kitchen table and island bar.

When you aren't taking in the impressive view of lake Barkley through the living rooms large French doors, you might wish to view the 60 inch flat screen TV. It is located in the spacious living room, directly over the gas log fireplace.

The laundry room is on the main level. It features a high efficiency washer and dryer along with an iron and ironing board.

Also, located on the main level are:

King suite (bedroom #1 with his and her bathrooms), king size bed and flat screen TV.

Bedroom #2, queen size bed.

The entertainment continues on the lower level with a fully-furnished game room. For your enjoyment, there is a TV/DVD viewing area, pool table, ping-pong table, electronic dart board, board games, popcorn machine and wet bar. Everything you'll need to make fun-family memories.

Why Phyllis Johnson chose Lake Barkley

We chose this vacation property because it offered quiet solitude as well as faster paced outdoor activities. The views are picturesque! We look forward to sharing the beauty of the Kentucky seasons, with you.

What makes this house unique

This open floor plan makes it great for large family gatherings.

You can get up in the mornings and enjoy sitting on the swing out back with a great view. Watch the wild life its every where .

Beautiful location

  • 4 of 5

Beautiful home on the lake and a great place for multiple generations to gather for a reunion. 14 of us in the house quite comfortably and the games in the basement kept the kids busy when it was just too hot to venture outside. Not sure I would go back in July, but would consider spring or fall. The only negative was the access to the water. I knew we wouldn't have a place to swim at the house, but it was very awkward to get the kayaks in and out of the water with all the rocks along the shore.

Perfect relaxing vacation for the family!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a relaxing family vacation, and this home was perfect for it! Four generations, ages 2-87! Enough bedrooms and bathrooms for everyone, kid proof enough for the little ones, beautiful views, large enough to have our own space but still be together. We took advantage of the boat slip available (rented a pontoon boat from Prizer Point) - the boat slip is a bit of a walk away, but there's a golf cart (which was very handy for my 87 year old father!). The lake front is not for swimming - a rocky, uneven coast - but Phyllis had let us know that ahead of time, so we were expecting that. The house comes with passes to the fitness center at the state park - about a 20-30 minute drive away - the kids loved the pool there!! The fitness center was not crowded, and the pool was warm enough for the little ones to truly enjoy it. The town of Cadiz is small, without anything touristy to do. Small grocery store - there's a Walmart about 45-60 minutes away that we made one big stop at, then did smaller trips to the small store in Cadiz as needed. My favorite spot in the house was the screened in porch - perfect for settling in and reading! The beds were comfortable, lots of hot water for showers, washer and dryer, full kitchen. Lots of deer in the area - be careful driving! Our favorite was a mama deer with 3 fawns that would wander by several of the days we were there! The only down side - it's Kentucky summer, so there are ticks! Check the kids every night!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This was a perfect place for our family celebration -- the house is spacious, and the downstairs was such a great area for the kids - we were so grateful for the pool table when it rained! We had 17 staying overnight, and a few more in & out during the day.

The island between the kitchen and the living area was ideal for all the meals we served. Brand new large gas grill. Big table on the back deck. The kitchen is well-stocked -- even has a KitchenAid mixer, which we used to make the cake! One suggestion -- we could have used one more large pot for the big meal.

Phyllis was wonderful to work with - very patient and accommodating with my endless questions of "does it have this" and "do I need to bring that" . We had a great time, and would definitely return.

Couple of notes -- some people had cell service, some did not.

Phyllis warned us, and she was correct -- be careful when coming in at dusk/night -- lots of deer.

Bring bug spray for any activity late in the day/at night.

Path down to the fire pit/lake is fairly steep -- not for anyone elderly or with mobility issues.

Try the chicken from the deli at Hancock's Neighborhood Market - call and order ahead. The family agreed it was the best they'd ever had!

Make sure you read the check-out procedures and plan accordingly. Since we used a lot of the "extra" bedding for air mattresses & trundles, we had quite a bit of laundry to do before we left. Nothing unreasonable, just needed to allow for enough time before checkout.

Thank you Phyllis for such a great stay!

Perfect get away

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 16 enjoyed a fun family reunion at Edgewater. We've all traveled extensively and stayed in a lot of places. Edgewater was beyond comfortable and was spacious for all of us. It felt like home and had everything we needed. We throughly enjoyed ourselves and will hopefully be back again when we can herd everyone together again.

Relaxing and roomy place to stay right on the lake!

  • 5 of 5

The house was clean, roomy, very nicely decorated, and the layout was perfect for a gathering of family and friends. Location is right on the lake. We celebrated my parents' 50th wedding anniversary with close family. Phyllis was very attentive to any questions or problems. Be sure to bring bug spray for outdoor activities, as ticks were more prevelant than usual because of the mild winter.
