The cottage is located in a secluded location at the end of a cul-de-sac overlooking finger coves, on a trophy fishing lake. Wilderness trails with a state park are close by. All the luxuries of a home in a wilderness setting have been provided. The peaceful setting allows for quiet moments on all of the three decks overlooking the lake. For those who prefer to balance their stay with indoor time, cable TV is available on all three floors. Stereo/CD entertainment is available on the main floor. WiFi is available at the cabin for those who want to keep in touch with the larger world. The front of the cabin, looking out into the cove, allows for spectacular sunrise and sunset photo opportunities or moments of personal reflection.

About Mike and Jo Bailey
We live in Wisconsin on the south shore of Lake Superior. We owned and rented a cottage on Madeline Island in Bayfield, WI for 17 years, so we know what visitors to an area like. We have 7 of 14 grandchildren in KY so wish to visit, but are more than willing to share the cottage with you when we are not there.
Mike and Jo Bailey purchased this Cottage in 2014
Why Mike and Jo Bailey chose Dunmor
We looked for a wilderness lake near our children and found a perfect kayak spot with wildlife and awesome views. This home is fully equipped with all the necessities available in city life, plus the seclusion, quiet, and privacy found only in a wilderness setting. Each of the 3 decks looks out on the finger cove. Sunrises and sunsets are spectacular.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our cabin provides solitude and luxury in a natural setting. The lake contains a wilderness reserve, with a scattering of private residences. Fishing, boating, sailing, and kayaking are primary visitor preoccupations. Eagles, deer, turkeys, squirrels, and birds of all kinds share the beauty of the area. Lake Malone is within a half hour of larger communities and city activities. Parks, Bike trails, museums, and historical sites are all within easy travel distance. A restaurant/resort is ten minutes away for local dining at a reasonable price. Residents are welcoming and friendly.

Saw The Great Eclipse from the third story deck.
The place us beautiful and well-designed. Kids were on the first level. Adults on the third. It is well-equipped. The sunrise view is amazing.
Wonderful Retreat! Mike and Jo are wonderful hosts! Very easy to communicate with and Lake House has many special touches to make you "feel at home." Very clean and welcoming! Loved the screened-in deck. Perfect viewing for amazing sunrises and sunsets! Great setting for our family to have time together!
We are so pleased when a guest feels "at home". This party left the cottage quite clean. That is always appreciated. More than anything, we feel happy when guests have a good time and are comfortable in our southern home.
Mike and Jo Bailey
We had a great time. The house is beautiful and has everything you need.
Thank you, Ketchums. We have tried to furnish it as if we lived there.
Your cleanliness was greatly appreciated by our cleaner. We will give
you a discount if/when you return.
My husband and I really enjoyed ourselves. The place had everything we needed from kitchen essentials, laundry, towels, bedding....very clean and cozy home right on lake Malone. We relaxed on the decks soaking up sun or sipping on coffee looking at the peaceful view, fished right off the dock or floated in the lake to cool off. We really needed a break from daily life and that's exactly what we did here. We will be back again next month to share the experience with our daughter and friends!!!
This is small-town quiet created/preserved for Nature lovers and fisher-people. We are in a no-wake zone with many kayaks and canoes. Sunrise and sunset are awesome! We maintain a booklet listing local and regional activities onsite at the cottage. WiFi is available for those who enjoy looking at and listening to the outdoors will sitting on either one of two open air porches or an enclosed deck off the main floor. Visitors enjoy escaping city heat by coming to the lake. On days of excess humidity, the cottage air conditioning system keeps all three floors comfortable. Many renters find that they like to plan excursion side trips to larger cities such as Bollingreen, Nashville, or Clarksville. After a day in the those communities, the subtle sounds of nature and a golden sunset are a welcome way to shed tensions and kick back. History buffs, nature buffs, golf enthusiasts, bargain hunting shoppers and environmental experience officienatoes all will find opportunities in the large and small communities, as well as the undeveloped areas in this region of the state.
