Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Please Note: This condo is offered for rent by an individual owner, and not by the Apple Valley Condominium Association

You will love returning here after a day on the Lake (or you may find it so relaxing that you never make it out onto the Lake). Unit D-1 is a two floor, townhouse style unit.

The first floor features a fully equipped kitchen, including refrigerator, stove, microwave, and dishwasher, along with plates and utensils. The kitchen opens onto a dining area with a high top table and chairs. An adjacent living room area offers a comfortable sectional couch, large ottoman, and new flat screen TV (with Dish Network). A first floor balcony opens off of the dining area giving guests a beautiful view of a wooded ravine typical of the Lake Cumberland area. Completing the first floor is a full bathroom.

The stairway to the second floor opens into the master bedroom, which contains a king size bed and full dresser with mirror. There is plenty of open floor space for kids in sleeping bags, an air mattress, a playpen, or luggage. The second balcony opens off of the master bedroom, and with its treehouse feel is the perfect place for morning coffee. The second bedroom is also upstairs, and with bunk beds and a pull out couch, can sleep four. A second full bath, accessible from both bedrooms, completes the second floor. All upstairs rooms have vaulted ceilings.The entire condo was freshly painted in 2013. There are hardwood floors throughout the first floor, and carpeting throughout the second floor. Both bathrooms have ceramic tile. In addition to the private balconies, guests can also enjoy the outdoors on a deck just outside the front door. It's a perfect place for picnics, and is a great staging area for your day on the Lake. Unit D-1 is located in a private, gated resort. The resort makes enjoying Lake life easy with ample boat trailer parking, a station for cleaning fish, and easy access to two major launching ramps. There is also plenty to do at the resort without ever going out on the Lake. Guests can enjoy a newly renovated swimming pool, tennis courts, basketball court, fire ring, and playground area. There are also several hiking trails that lead from the resort down to the Lake. In addition, the convenient location allows guests to easily enjoy all the amenities offered by Lake Cumberland State Resort Park. We think you will love it here. One visit and you'll never want to stay in Lure Lodge or the State Park cottages again!

Please Note: The geography of this area is hilly, and the walkway from the parking lot down to our condo is relatively steep. We think the privacy is well worth it, but those with physical limitations may find the walkway challenging.

About Chris Moell

Our family lives in Champaign County, Ohio, in rural West Liberty. Our three kids range from high school to middle school age, and we have enjoyed boating at Lake Cumberland for many years.

Chris Moell purchased this condo in 2013

Why Chris Moell chose Apple Valley

Our family has been coming to Lake Cumberland for more than 20 years, and my wife's family for many more than that. We love the West end of the Lake, and would always stay in either Lure Lodge or a cottage in Lake Cumberland State Resort Park.

Although our condo is located just inside the entrance to the State Park, it is so private that we drove by it hundreds of times (literally) over the years without ever even realizing it was there. We 'discovered' in 2012 and, after a disappointing stay in one of the State Park cottages earlier that summer, decided to try it for a spur of the moment trip. That one stay hooked us. Not only did we find it to be much nicer than the State Park cottages, but it was a better value. We bought our own unit shortly afterwards.

The condo resort really is the best of both worlds. It offers easy access to everything the Lake Cumberland State Resort Park offers, but with the amenities of a privately owned resort.

What makes this condo unique

Our favorite part of the condo is the balconies. The balconies on our condo in particular overlook a wooded ravine. The slope of the ravine combined with the height of the structure put these balconies in the midst of the treetops, giving them a treehouse feel. It's the perfect place for morning coffee with birds chirping in the background, or to relax in the evening surrounded by night sounds. Just about every one of our days starts and ends on one of the balconies.

Map

Our condo is part of Apple Valley Resort, which is located just inside Cumberland State Park. If you've been to the state park you probably drove right by Apple Valley without ever noticing it was there (it took us years to 'discover' it). This convenient location gives our guests easy access to all the amenities the state park offers (horseback riding, hiking trails, Frisbee golf, Lure Lodge, miniature golf, to name a few), and, most importantly, to beautiful Lake Cumberland itself. Located close to the launching ramps at both Pumpkin Creek (State Dock) and Wolf Creek Dam, our condo makes the perfect home base for your time a Lake Cumberland. Our family has boated at Lake Cumberland for the last 20 years, and had always stayed at Lure Lodge or one of the state park cottages. In 2012 we discovered Apple Valley when planning a spur of the moment trip, and enjoyed so much we quickly bought a unit of our own. Our condo is updated, clean, private, and a great value. Once you've stayed here you'll never want to stay in the state park lodge or cottages again!

Nice, small condo, Best for two adults plus kids, not handicap accessible

  • 3 of 5

The instructions were great and the place was clean and kitchen was well equipped. This is really a one bedroom with a king size bed and attached sitting room with two bunk beds best for kids. It is down a steep hill so you need to be nimble to get there. It served our purposes.

We would consider staying there again although we would prefer something on the parking level. resort Amenities are basic. NO WIFI in condo. Natural lighting is limited. TV is small

Great location, clean, easy check in, resort area peaceful and secluded.

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a great stay at Chris's Condo. The Condo was very clean and wonderfully decorated. Loved the pictures on walls and the decks for morning coffee. The Condo was so nice to come home to after long day of boating on the lake. Thank you for sharing your awesome place with us. I must add that the resort area in itself is extremely nice. Lots to do and the pool area great. Thanks again and we will be back.

A very nice unit and a great time!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i stayed at Lake Cumberland two years ago and loved it. This year we brought our daughter and 8 year old grandson. We all had a fantastic time and on the last day my grandson asked if we could stay another day. The rental unit has everything you need and was very clean. There is lots to do at the lake including fishing, boating, basketball courts, hiking and just relaxing. You have to walk a little bit down a steep hill to reach the unit so iif you have any trouble walking this particular one might not work for you. Other than that one small issue it is an overall great value and a great time. The owner is very responsive and easy to deal with as well.

Great Value!

  • 5 of 5

Chris offers an extraordinary value. My good friends and I do a semi-annual trip to Cumberland. We've rented a number of places, including rooms at the Lure Lodge, cabins at the State Resort Park, and private VRBO homes. This is clearly the best deal at the most convenient location just inside the park. The townhouse is attractive, well-equipped, and very comfortable. In addition, Chris is cooperative and communicates well. We'll plan on coming back!
