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.
