About the property

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 (just redone in June of 2018) 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 (both the grill and fire pit are new as of June 2018). 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.

June 2018: We replaced our 3 front windows, including the one in the bathroom shower. The bathroom window glass is "obscured," but not enough. We have added a temporary curtain until we solve this issue.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there room for our boat in your driveway?

Yes. We keep our boat in the driveway during our stays.

Is there a dock nearby?

Yes. Lee's Ford Marina is about a mile down the road. You can store your boat overnight there for about $30 per night. They also have boats, wave runners, and paddle boards available for rental. Fishing Creek Recreational Area is 3 miles away and is $5 to launch. Pulaski County State Park is 3.9 miles away and they offer free public launching.

Is there swimming nearby?

Lake Cumberland is surrounded by many cliffs. Swimming usually occurs from boats. Nearby swimming is available at Pulaski County State Park where they have a small beach.

Do you have life jackets or other equipment available? We do not. You will need to provide your own equipment or contact Lee's Ford Marina about rental rates.

Will you make an exception and allow my house-trained pet to stay in your home? No. Although we are animal lovers, we do not allow animals in our vacation home.

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.

Cute as a Button!

  • 4 of 5

The Fishing Creek Cottage was super clean and convenient. The owner was responsive and even allowed us to check in early, since the unit was unoccupied the night before. The kitchen was well stocked, and the deck and view were amazing. Given the A-frame construction, there were a few tight squeezes to get to the beds. The bathroom is small but functional, and the shower was very attractive. Tight quarters in places are the only reason for giving the property a 4 instead of 5 star rating.

Better than expected! Great place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

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.

Fantastic get away cabin!

  • 4 of 5

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!
