Updated Home with Great View and Conveniently Near Marina, Park and Town.
Thank you for considering Fishing Creek Cottage. We love our lake house and think you will, too! We have an incredible lakefront view from the large deck that you can enjoy while grilling dinner on the gas grill, sitting by the fire pit, or watching all of the boating action on the lake just below. The view includes the popular recreational area on Fishing Creek, a major arm of Lake Cumberland, and parts of Pulaski County State Park. Our entire cottage has been updated. The kitchen includes a full-size stove, refrigerator, microwave oven, and dishwasher and is fully stocked with cook and dishware, including a toaster, coffee pot, and a new Keurig. The great room and bedroom have new hardwood floors. The bath, which has a shower only, has been completely remodeled. The entire house has fresh paint. There is ample room for parking your boat in the driveway, as well as at least 2 cars. The cottage is one mile from Lee's Ford Marina and Harbor Restaurant and just 5 miles from Somerset. The master bedroom, loft, and great room all have televisions and DVD players and cable and the home has WiFi. There is a new washer and dryer for your use. The deck includes a table with seating for 6 as well as 6 Adirondack-style chairs for use around the fire pit or to just relax and enjoy the view. The master bedroom sleeps 2, the loft sleeps 2, and the futon in the living area sleeps 2. There is also a toddler-sized cot and booster seat for the kitchen table if needed.
December 2017: It appears some of our younger guests may have decided to scratch the frosting off the window in our shower. We have temporarily added a curtain. We apologize and plan to replace the window with one that is permanently frosted in the spring when it is warmer.

About Jennie Jetter
We purchased our home in 2008 to use as a family retreat. As our kids have gotten older (our oldest is in his second year of college) we have unfortunately found ourselves at the lake less and less, but this means you can enjoy it! This house has been filled with great memories of family and friends. Our kids have grown up tubing and wake boarding and love the water. Fishing Creek Cottage has always been a sanctuary for us.

Why Jennie Jetter chose Somerset
We wanted an affordable lakefront home with an incredible view. After years of updating, the house is almost new from top to bottom. We have loved our cozy lake house and the time we've spent here with our kids.
What makes this Cottage unique
Our home is located in a a cul-de-sac. It is private and quiet and calm. However, the easy access to town makes it a convenient place to stay. There is also a large driveway to allow for boat parking & Lee's Ford Marina is just a mile away, but the most unique benefit is the view. We think we have one of the best on Lake Cumberland.

Better than expected! Great place to stay!
We stayed at this lovely cottage for a last-minute getaway with our 5 children (ages infant - 10) and it was great! There was plenty of space and the house had everything we needed! It was very clean and updated. Kitchen is fully stocked, wifi, cable and tons of movies. There is also a lot to do in the area surrounding the cottage - lots of nature hikes and sights to see! We would definitely stay here again.
Ben - Thanks so much for your kind review. So glad you and your family enjoyed your stay! Dave & Jennie

Cute cabin overlooking lake
Great place to stay! It has a great view and the design is unique and very cute!
Thanks so much Peter. We're so glad you enjoyed your stay. Dave & Jennie
Fantastic get away cabin!
I booked thus cabin as a surprise anniversary trip for my husband and we truly enjoyed our stay. It ended up being colder than we planned so we didn't have the opportunity to use the deck. The property was very clean and we had a great time!
Beautiful little house with a huge outdoor deck with great view
The house was beautiful, well kept. The deck was huge and the breeze coming from the lake reminded me of being at the ocean at times. The water is a ways down, which was perfect for us, since we were looking for some R&R.. the lake provided a great view without causing the area to be busy. Bonus, this property is at the end of a street overviewing the lake channel.. so, that added some privacy. Loved this place! I will most definitely rent again.. also, the owners are super friendly and helped me (even on Thanksgiving Day) to create the perfect surprise anniversary weekend for my husband.
Thank you so much Heather. We're glad you and your husband enjoyed your stay. We love our little lake house and are always happy when our guests love it too! We look forward to having you stay with us again. Dave & Jennie

I would rent it out again in a heartbeat!
