About The Owner

We have this single home overlooking Lake Cumberland and 2 homes in Hilton Head overlooking the beach and ocean. We have been renting our home at Lake Cumberland for almost 15 years. We make some improvement almost every year. It was a full time residence when we bought it and we've only improved it. We live in Northern KY close to downtown Cincinnati.

The Owner purchased this house in 1988

Why The Owner chose Bronston

We grew up going to Lake Cumberland and camped. We learned to ski there. We have owned our home since 1988. We love the view and comforts of our year around home while still enjoying sitting around a campfire. It has given us many wonderful memories.

The main attraction to Lake Cumberland, of course, is boating, fishing and water skiing.

There is a wide variety of restaurants and 2 local wineries (Cedar Creek and Sinking Valley), as well as a mall, Kroger's, Walmart and Lowe's. There are many golf courses in the area. General Burnside State Park and Woodson Bend are the closest and within 10 minutes away. Both are nice courses. Cumberland Falls, one of the largest waterfalls in the United States and one of only two places in the world where a moonbow can be seen, is only 30-minutes away. If you like horseback riding, it is available at the state park across the lake.

Beautiful area, house needs work

  • 2 of 5

The view is beautiful. I think they need to hire a new property manager and/or cleaning service. When we arrived there were no bath towels, hand towels or kitchen towels to be found. There was 1/2 roll of toilet paper in the bathroom and no extra supply. The bathroom mirror had come off the wall and instead of repairing it they simply set it on the back of the sink and it was way too low. I called the manager for the home, he honestly sounded like he had already begun celebrating the weekend. I asked if we could get some bath towels and toilet paper. He said that was the cleaning lady's job and he would call her. When we returned from dinner toilet paper and paper towels had been delivered, still no bath towels. I searched through every closet and finally found a bin with a couple of wash cloths and one bath towel stuck back in the corner of a shelf. It also would have been nice to have a notebook available explaining the tv, area attractions or restaurants etc which we are used to having in all the other homes we've rented through VRBO. I do not plan to rent this house again

Owner's Response: We have rented our home and made family memories for people for almost 15 years now and have many wonderful reviews. We continually upgrade our home virtually new kitchen appliances, Pergo and carpet floors, and new electronics. Our home was and can be a full-time home. We work very hard to make your stay relaxing and enjoyable. HOUSE MANAGER/HANDYMAN - Don was in a terrible accident years ago and has a speech impediment. We have worked with Don now for many years. He does a wonderful job and we trust him with our home and guests. PAPER PRODUCTS – We provide 2 rolls of toilet paper and paper towels. I spoke to Christy, our maid whom we’ve used for years without any complaints. She was upset as she said that she did leave the normal supply of paper products. Regardless, Don (house manager/handyman) lives 2 miles away and immediately brought some over for our guest. Christy also said that the mirror in the bathroom was up when she left, so it must have fallen subsequently and has since been fixed. TOWELS – Under amenities, the box for towels is not checked, meaning there is no statement under amenities that towels are provided. Fortunately, we do have towels in sealed plastic tubs for our own use and they were able to use around 5 towels according to our maid. Please review the details and amenities of our home to prevent any misunderstanding. Also, once your reserve our home, you should be able to see our number and/or email. Please call us and we'd be happy to discuss all the details of your stay and local attractions.

Plenty of space and a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed here for a long weekend and had a great time. There was a total of 4 adults, 2 kids, and dog. We had plenty of room and never felt like we were in each other's way. It was a beautiful weekend and spent most of it out on the large deck that looks right at Pitman Creek. There is a very nice fire pit area that we used each night that we were there. You're about a 7 minute drive from town where you can find plenty of places for food and a grocery store. You are also about a 7 minute drive from Burnside Marnia. We spent one day on a pontoon which was amazing.

Convenient, clean, comfortable, awesome view from deck.

  • 5 of 5

Owners were very responsive, accommodations were very clean and very comfortable, everything was exactly as advertised. Convenient and close to Somerset, Burnside and Monticello. Everything was up to date and in good condition. If you are boating, fishing and out and about, can't beat for the price. Located in residential area right over the lake.

Owner's Response: Thank you for choosing our home for your family getaway! We are very happy to hear that you enjoyed the home and the area. We've had many fun times there with our children (now all grown), so we're always glad when other families also have a great time together.

Holiday Getaway

  • 3 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed the views from the deck but this deck could use some improvements. Have to watch pets and children closely due to the large gaps between railings which are too far apart and several uneven boards that you have to be careful so you don't trip, especially if anyone has any handicap. The inside of the home was nice but the master bed was a little to soft for our comfort and we had to stick a pillow between the headboard and bedframe as the headboard was not attached and rattled on every little move. The TV room is very comfortable and provides great views. We only wished we would have known that there is no cable and you won't actually be able to watch TV unless you bring/rent DVDs. We like our sports and missed many College Bowl games but did bring some DVDs which helped. We could not locate a CD player which was listed but did use the small radio in the master. We could not locate any instructions on how to use the stove but eventually figured out how to use it. When we arrived there was still trash in both the bath and kitchen cans and food in the freezer. Overall the house is comfy but just a little TLC would make it a little nicer. We have rented many VRBO & homeaway homes and this one would be rated in the middle range. Views are great and neighborhood very quiet. If there is a regular handyman I think there are things he needs to fix. Many VRBO homes have provided a Welcome Basket which have included Things to do in the area, etc.

Owner's Response: We have been continuously improving our home so, in 2016, we installed all new kitchen appliances, remodeled the bathroom and added a new flat screen TV and furniture. In fact, since this review was submitted, we've already upgraded the deck with new railing and floor boards!
