About Clara Nin
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.
Clara Nin purchased this House in 1988
Why Clara Nin 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.
What makes this House unique
Differentiating Home Features 1. Panoramic view - Look out over Lake Cumberland, Pittman Creek winding away from you, and rolling hillside for miles. 2.

Fully equipped kitchen - Includes a dishwasher and oven as well. 5. Stack washer and dryer - In case you need to do laundry while you're there. 6.

We’ll definitely be coming back!
So to start off, I want to let everyone know that we had an AMAZING time! Most things were good, but I do want to mention what it was that kept it from getting a 5 star rating. The remote to the blue rat player didn’t work, even when we switched batteries, and the grill had to be manually lit, and even though it did light, it would barely cook the chicken we had on it, so that definitely needs to be improved on. The carpets were a bit dirty, so perhaps focus on those few areas, and you’ll definitely get a five star rating from us next time. But here are some good things that made it a four star rating. The view! That alone deserves four stars especially when standing on the back patio in the morning and seeing the sun rise up over the mountains, simply breathtaking. It made the entire trip worth it. And how much you feel at home when staying there! It doesn’t feel like a hotel stay or cabin stay, but like you are in a home away from home. It felt very comfortable. I definitely recommend staying here anytime you want that home away from home feeling with a breathtaking mountain/valley view!
Thank you for the good review. We work hard maintaining our home, but things happen. I had the grill checked the day he left and it worked fine. So I'm not sure what the problem was. We do leave firesticks to start the grills because the starters are a perpetual problem.
We'll get the Blu-Ray remote checked and we can buy a replacement. Fortunately, you can work the Blu-Ray manually without a remote. Also, we have a Roku TV so you're able to stream movies and content as well.
This is the first that we've heard about the carpets and the maids have not said anything, but we'll get the carpets cleaned. We'll get a 5 star the next time you come!
Great place, housekeeping could’ve been better
Great deck with views of the lake, excellent fire pit. Beds were comfortable, and the house was generally clean. All the dinner plates had dried food on them though and had to be washed before use. Also, there was trash left in the outdoor trashcan that we had to clean out and bag. Otherwise, we enjoy the property very much and would rent it again.
I'm not sure what happened with the plates. I guess the prior guest put them away dirty and the maids didn't catch that. Our apologies.
As we tell everyone, we don't ask you to take your trash out to the can. But anything that goes into the outside trash cans must be bagged or Waste Management will not pick it up. It's an odd situation that I don't understand why the cities in the area accept, but if there are even a couple of loose cans on top of bags, they'll leave the whole can and won't touch it. Guests certainly aren't asked to bag that. Please call us and we'll send our handyman by if that occurs.
Thank you for staying with us and your nice review.
Had a great stay. No issues whatsoever with the house, location, view, etc.
Only suggestion would be to update information on all listing sites. Airbnb, VRBO, and Google search listings all showed different amenities and pricing for pets. For example, there WERE towels when listings said there weren’t...worked out in our favor. By no means did any of this give us a negative experience. It all worked out just fine. It would make planning what to bring a little easier. Kitchen is updated from what is shown in pictures as well...another pleasant surprise.
Great place for family time, good movie selection (Netflix, Crackle, etc). Would definitely recommend staying here.
Thank you for your great review. It is difficult to stay up on different web sites as they all work differently and act differently. It is a full-time job with our 3 homes. I didn't even know about the google search that you're referring to, so I'll research that. The pictures should all be updated except I don't know about the google search. It must be pulling old pics from somewhere. I'll research it and update all. Thanks for alerting me to those issues.
Owner is a great guy who will work with you to maximize your Lake Cumberland experience
Everything went smoothly
Thanks Roger. We work hard to make sure everything is right for our guests. We hope to see you again.
Property was very clean. A little vintage. Area was great. View was spectacular. Probably will stay here again. Communication was good with owners. But a little slow.
Thanks for a great review. We're a phone call away as well as we provide the phone number for our handyman and housekeeper in case we're unavailable, flying, in meetings, etc. We don't necessarily see emails immediately, so calling is the best way to reach us. We look forward to hosting you again.
