Quiet and serene

Loved fishing from the covered dock. The deck was a great place to enjoy a cup of coffee. The owners were very nice and attentive. We would stay there again.

Perfect water front get away

  • 5 of 5

The house has large window areas facing the water. You can tell the owner cares for your comfort and enjoyment by how well the home is furnished. The owner is attentive and lives nearby and is a very thoughtful and kind person. You would not be disappointed with this home. Wonderful in every way.

great retreat

  • 5 of 5

We loved the setting. The covered dock was fantastic. It was on a quiet cove so we could swim off the dock. Rick was great to work with. We would definitely go back.

Peaceful, extra clean with everything you need to spend a vacation.

  • 5 of 5

We had a great week away from our normal busy life at Ricks cabin. I used the covered boat dock that comes with the cabin and left my boat in the water all week. No loading and launching everyday. There is a marina in sight of the boat dock to fuel , with reasonably priced gas. Fishing was tuff at times but, that’s fishing. Cabin was better than we expected and super clean. My wife and daughter swam and sun bathed most of the time on the dock. They both said it was one of the better trips we have taken and we have been to several lakes and beaches. Rick is a great host and will help you anyway he can. When I decide to take another trip to this part of KY lake , I hope this cabin is available or possibly change my week for a time that it is. No complaints from us. Thanks.
