In spring and summer/high pool Little River is a fisherman's dream; you can fish from the dock or shore. Springtime is particularly good bass and crappie fishing on Lake Barkley. If you are the people-watcher type, you will enjoy spotting the fishing boats float by. The more adventurous will want to explore the coves, islands, and shoreline for excitement. 4 kayaks are available for your use that hold a total of 6 people.
We are just a short distance from I-24 which makes it easy to navigate to all the fun spots. Leisure Lakehouse offers easy access to marinas, Lake Barkley State Park, Land Between the Lakes, and Kentucky Lake. Antiquing in friendly Cadiz is a fun past-time, and restaurants can be found throughout the lake area. Land Between the Lakes is a family must-see with the Elk and Bison Prairie, eagle tours at the Nature Station, the Planetarium, The Homeplace (a 19th century working farm), and numerous hiking and off-road trails.There is so much to see and do that you will want to spend time exploring the many attractions, all within a short drive. If you are in the mood for music and city fun, Nashville is only a 1.5 hour drive.
Leisure Lakehouse is located on a dead end large 4-lot point with a private circular driveway and a 2 car garage. Part of the property butts up to thickly wooded government property. It's from here that you will spot deer and wild turkeys venturing out into the open grassy meadow. There is plenty of parking for vehicles, boats, and RVs. The u-shaped drive makes for easy in and out access when pulling trailers.
The house sleeps 12 total. The master bedroom, located on the main floor, has awesome views of the lake and trees that let you enjoy the outdoors and wildlife while still lying in bed. The master bedroom also opens up to the deck for a fresh morning peek of the sunrise and the strolling waterfowl. Some mornings you will sight a few deer or a flock of turkeys, and the egrets and herons are always at the water's edge.
Upstairs, the spacious landing joins 2 more bedrooms separated by a full bath. The smaller bedroom makes a wonderful kids' room, with 2 sets of bunk beds and 3 game chairs. The larger bedroom has 2 queen beds and a small sleeper sofa. Both bedrooms have beautiful views of the lake.

About Thea and Bill, 951-551-4760, 951-553-6275, email@example.com
We are looking forward to retirement on Lake Barkley. We have a few years to go, but we decided to try the leisure life a couple of weeks out of the year. As working folks, we don't get as much time to enjoy the property as we would like.
Thea and Bill, 951-551-4760, 951-553-6275, firstname.lastname@example.org purchased this House in 2014
Why Thea and Bill, 951-551-4760, 951-553-6275, email@example.com chose Cadiz
We purchased Leisure Lakehouse in Spring of 2014. Although we have family a couple of hours north, we are just getting to know the Lake area. We wanted a retirement home in a resort-like setting that was close enough for family gatherings. This spacious home and property is perfectly situated for a large number of people to have a great deal of fun. We wanted a place that was private and peaceful, but close enough to amenities and friendly faces.
What makes this House unique
When we first saw this place, there was a big owl sitting in a tree off the deck. We knew it was a good sign. On that same day, we were awed by the multitude and variety of birds and jumping fish. This house is unique with its huge deck that puts you face to face with the singing birds in the trees. We enjoy watching the ducks and herons take their morning stroll as we sip cups of coffee. In evenings, we like to grill something juicy and watch the fading sunlight play on the water. The master bedroom is a favorite of ours for its ample space and large windows. The views are magnificent and calming. What a great way to wake up in the morning. Perhaps that's why we named our house the Leisure Lakehouse. We find that when we are here, all the stress dissipates. It is a terrific vacation spot, and for us it will be the ultimate retirement location.

We (two families with kids) met 2018 in this fabulous house and had very good time. The house was immaculately clean and well furnished. Its quiet location and the views of the lake are awesome. In addition, the owners are extremely nice and prompt. You can't go wrong renting this house.
Lots of room, great views of the lake, seclusion, wonderfully priced!!
Such a beautiful home with great views of the lake. If serenity is what you're looking for then this place is for you. The nearby town is quaint and you're only 1.5 hrs from Nashville! We will be back!
Very peaceful and well kept
The house was very clean. The kitchen had all the pots and utensils we needed for cooking. The kids enjoyed the big yard to play in. We would recommend staying here.
Very nice home - had all we needed
Our group had a retreat at this home and the accommodations where top notch. The lane view free the wrap around porch was beautiful and peaceful. Highly recommended this property.
House was great. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could wish for. Sitting on the deck or the dock allowed you to completely disengage from the outside world. Only thing we were unaware of was the fact that at this time of year the water level is dropped. It made getting into and keeping the kayaks going more of a challenge but not impossible. If you don't like mud you are out of luck, go before Labor Day. Very relaxing, Bill & Thea were very responsive to any messages I sent before the rental started.
We love how peaceful our area of the lake is! We wish we could somehow control the lake level, but this is entirely up to the Army Corp of Engineers. Generally they begin to lower Barkley Lake and Kentucky Lake in late summer.
The house was fabulous. There was no lake.
The house was wonderful. It had all the amenities. It had a great deck and lots of room. Unfortunately there was no lake to speak of. The lake had dried up. We only had mud and very little water. The owner said the water varied but the dock was not even connected to the lake from the water being so low.
We take great pride in the cleanliness of the house and property, and we are happy to stock the kitchen and bathroom with amenities that make a stay more comfortable. Other outdoor amenities within our control are also available for our guests, including an outdoor Weber grill that includes propane, a fire pit with plenty of firewood, and kayaks for exploring the lake when the season permits. We do wish we could control the weather and the Army Corp of Engineers that dictate the water levels. Sadly, these are not things that any property owner can control. This year, the Army Corp lowered the lake levels more than usual for this time of year leaving many home owners disappointed with the lack of water.
Cadiz is a clean and friendly town that is known for its antiquing and annual Ham Festival. Be sure to look for all the colorful pigs located along Main St and in front of many businesses and residences. Cadiz is where you will find your basic supplies, and it is the town that is the gateway to Land Between the Lakes. Be sure to spend time exploring all that this area has to offer, including the elk and bison reserve, the planetarium, and a variety of family friendly amusements.
