Property description

Beautiful three story log home with a picturesque lake view. You can get away from it all in this secluded sanctuary surrounded by woods. With 3,800 square feet, 6 bedrooms and 3.5 bathrooms you will have plenty of room for your entire group. Enjoy a cup of coffee on one of the two back decks and watch the sunrise over the lake, or sip cool drink on one of the two covered front porches and watch the sunset into the woods.

The great room features two-story vaulted ceilings with a towering stone fireplace and a wall of windows to take in the lake view. The first floor is open concept so even if you have kitchen duty you can still interact with everyone.

Their is enough room throughout the home that large groups can congregate without feeling cramped.

You will be comfortable throughout the year with central heat and air and ceiling fans throughout the home. If your muscles are aching after hiking the hills or a day on the lake, soak them in the spacious hot tub.

Other Amenities

  • A few things to consider. The Chalet sits at the end of a ridge and is accessed by a gravel road. The road is approximately 40 feet wide with forested hills on either side. There is a large hill with a steep grade at the entrance to the property. Therefore leaving the Chalet in a two-wheel drive vehicle requires speed and momentum to carry you up and over the hill, especially if you are loaded down with people and coolers. If you are towing a boat, we recommend you rent a slip at one of the nearby marinas and drop the boat off before you arrive at the Chalet. It is possible to bring a small boat down to the Chalet (24 feet or less), but you will need four-wheel drive to get out over the hill if you are towing a boat. The chalet is surrounded by forest and sits on top of a ridge. Therefore, it is not practical to get to the lake from the Chalet. We recommend accessing the lake via one of the nearby marinas....moreless

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: Hi, we are the owners, Ted and Terry Myers. We love the outdoors and especially this beautiful lake. Over the years we frequently vacationed at Dale Hollow Lake. In 2000 we rented a cabin on the lake and dreamed of having our own. During that vacation we met a log home builder who also had lake view property for sale so you can guess what happened. We purchased the property and began the planning process for building our own log home. The building of the chalet was a family affair so we took great pride in the work quality completing 80% ourselves. A year later the home was complete and we have been enjoying it with friends and family since 2001. Now we have decided to open it up to you. We feel very blessed to have the Chalet and choose to pass that blessing on to others by donating a week's vacation at the Chalet to various charitable groups. Since we began renting the Chalet in 2014 we have donated over 10 weeks. Our goal is to donate 10% of our gross revenue annually, and we have far exceeded that number to date. We are truly blessed. Ted was born in New York and moved around quite a bit as a military kid. His father's last post was at WPAFB in Dayton Ohio. Terry was born and raised in Ohio and met Ted when they both worked retail during college. We married after graduation and a few years later moved to Kentucky and we have been here since.

Why the Owner Chose Burkesville, KY, USA:
Imagine traveling down a county maintained gravel road for a mile. At the end of the road sits a beautiful log home for your vacation. Surrounded by woodlands, some of which are owned by the Army Corp of Engineers, your only visitors will be squirrels, deer, and turkey by day and owls by night. Friends and family who have stayed with us say there is something about staying at the Happy Hill Chalet that makes you sleep better at night. It could be its secluded location, it could be a day of fun on the lake, hiking, or ATV riding, it could be relaxing on the back deck or in the hot tub, or the comfortable beds, but whatever it is it seems to work if you need to rest.

The Unique Benefits at this Chalet:
Large enough to accommodate a group of 19 without feeling like your are crowding each other, yet cozy enough for smaller groups. With 3,800 square feet inside plus upper and lower decks on both the front and back of the home, you will have plenty of room to come together or have some separate space.
