Enjoy all the water activities a lake has to offer:

For smaller children, swimming is available at two nearby state park locations that have nice beach areas in protected coves. Boat rental is available at Wax Marina during summer boating season. Fishing is available from several shoreline locations on site, near the marina shelter area or at nearby state park.

convient nolin lake house

  • 5 of 5

We loved the caretakers Denny and Carolyn! They were very hospitable and helpful.

the house worked well for our crew, and the kitchen was well stocked with most everything that we needed. We loved eating dinner on the screened-in porch and having access to a boat dock.

It took us a while to find the 4th bedroom (attached to the garage) but since we had a teenager it was fine for his room.

We loved the Amish doughnuts on Saturday morning! We'll be back!

Clean cottage and wonderful neighbors.

  • 4 of 5

Great, clean cottage for older kids and adults. No beach which was a downside but we had a boat to go on the Nolan river lake. Ideal place if you have a boat but otherwise only swimming is jumping off the dock. Very helpful neighbors about close by shops, fishing spots and fun places to go. We had a great week!

Great house! Clean, plenty of bedrooms, lots of amenities in the kitchen. We stayed three nights - had seven adults. There was plenty of room. We used the kayaks and the fire pit. The main purpose of our trip was to go to Mammoth Cave. It's about a 50 minute drive from the Visitor Center of Mammoth Cave if you don't want to chance taking the entrance that requires a ferry trip. I would recommend this house!!
