Overview

About the property

Authentic Log Cabin on the lake! One turn off main highway.

Come visit this beautiful log home on Lake Barkley with extensive decking overlooking the lake and the Land Between The Lakes (LBL) National Recreational Area. The cabin has 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, laundry, sun room/reading room, and central heat and air.

The cabin sleeps 8 comfortably. Boating, fishing, swimming, and sunbathing are just out the back door. Nearby you can find horseback riding, go for a bike ride, or get wild and crazy on your ATV at Turkey Creek in LBL. Traveling west to Aurora, you will find Kentucky Lake State Park, host of the Hot August Blues Festival. Head east to Cadiz, home of the Trigg County Ham Festival, and you will find several antique shops, 2 nearby golf courses, tennis courts, walking trails, and much much more.

This log cabin is situated on the main lake with fabulous views year round and is conveniently located less than a mile from the main highway (US 68/80). Although no dock permits are granted on the main channel; the public boat ramp is just a mile down the road with very easy access. I also have dock access at the end of the street.

Wi-Fi and Dish Network are included. Verizon and ATT work well inside and out. To the best of my knowledge, all cell carriers work outside the cabin.

If you need anything at all, I live at the end of the street and will do my best to make your stay at the lake an enjoyable one! Included with your stay is a 5 person pass to the fitness center at nearby Lake Barkley State Park. This is a great place to unwind after a long day of sight seeing or a great place to take the kids on a rainy day. They offer racquetball, indoor pool, sauna, steam room, free weights, treadmills, nautilus machines, and workout classes. You will find the pass laying on the table with the house key.

FAQS:

 There is room for 4-5 cars in the driveway. There is plenty of room for over flow parking, just let me know and I’ll show you where it is.

 ALL your linens are provided. I always recommend bringing your pillow for your comfort.

 Our neighbors’ kids play in the street so please drive with caution.

 The grill is propane and the propane is provided. Bring a lighter as ours tend to walk off.

 The outdoor grill is not cleaned by the cleaning staff, please clean up after yourself. Also, please

excuse the last guest for not listening to the first part of this statement.

 The steps on the deck will lead you all the way to the shoreline.

 The water is gently sloping and you can swim from the shore.

 The bottom of the lake is rocky and semi-muddy. I recommend wearing lake shoes.

 Yes, you can fish from the shoreline. KY fish and game laws apply.

 Yes, you can use my covered dock at the end of the street. Everyone is welcome to come to the end of the street and use my lot on the point. I do ask that you respect our privacy.

• We have 2 pontoon boats and 2 jet skis available for rent. The all are shared between all of our rental houses and I do recommend you reserve in advance. They rent for $200.00 daily and include the first tank of gas. I always ask that you pay for the boats in cash once you arrive. The boats are always docked at our COVERED dock. Once I have given you safety instructions you are allowed to use the boat from sunrise to sunset. NO night use. If you are out after dark I will assume you are missing and emergence personnel will be notified. (Seasonal April-September)

• No penalty for boat rain outs. If you reserve we do ask that you plan on using the boat or it will be deducted from your deposit. We do not offer half day rentals.

 I always recommend you bring your food with you. Our grocery stores are no comparison to the stores most are used to in the city. I am (almost) always available by phone or email. Our cell service isn’t always the best so please leave a voicemail if I do not answer.

Fireplace is for looks only and is NOT functional.

We also have 2 kayaks available.

About Lucas Hale

I own a sawmill just down the road and we do some property management along with many other endeavors. We purchased The Log Cabin in early May 2013 and have been rapidly doing some much needed maintenance. Please bear with us as we continue making improvements.

Lucas Hale purchased this cabin in 2013

Why Lucas Hale chose Lake Barkley

I have lived in this neighborhood my entire life. In 2007, I purchased this residence from my grandparents who had been here for 35 years and they actually watched as The Log Cabin was originally constructed. As a kid, I grew up at the house at the end of this same street and recently had the opportunity to purchase that very house. My wife and I are super excited to be moving to the point!

What makes this cabin unique

This is a quiet neighborhood on the water. The multiple decks leading down to the lake give you the opportunity to experience several views of the water and the Barkley Bridge. On quiet mornings or early twilight, I have seen otters, beavers, deer, geese, ducks, and plenty of fish floppings! From time to time, an adult eagle can be seen hunting in the bay area.

Beautiful setting. Terrific owner.

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 10 had a wonderful stay at the lake Log Cabin. Setting was beautiful. Kids could get down to the lake right from the property, and sunsets were memorable! Even better was the owner's pontoon boat, available for rental, and his offer of easier lake access at his property a short walk away. Plenty of room for 10 to spread out, not get in each other's way. Weather was fabulous. We were so lucky! Also needed an ER while there, and owner provided expert advice. He really aims to please. We'll be back! Only reason for 4 stars is small kitchen, but we managed just fine, used propane grill on site, and took a crock pot with us. Great having all linens provided too!

Wonderful place for a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our stay at Lucas Hale's cabin by Lake Barkley! There were 8 of us and we had plenty of room. The easy access to the lake and availability of rental boats within walking distance at Lucas' dock was so convenient. Loved sitting on the deck down by the water and just relaxing. As so many others have said in past reviews, Lucas was very responsive to any texts asking questions or needing anything at all.

We had a great time. Lucas was so quick to respond with any questions we had. We rented one of his boats during our stay and it was so nice! The cabin was very clean and and cozy. When he says he has everything you need - he means it. We will stay here again for sure!

A gathering of family in a great place

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful home. It was to be a gathering place for family from the 4 corners of the US and proved to be every bit the right place to meet. Neat, warm inviting. Lucas Hale, the owner, is a fantastic host, friendly and available. We further rented a pontoon boat from Lucas; top shape, the only way to see the lake. A portion of the group went into Cadiz; found antiques and an animal preserve that were fascinating. Would go again and go with Lucas.
