About the property

Private Lot On 3.7 Acres - 2,950 Sq. Ft. with nice lake views

You will love this very nice 5BR, 3BA lake front house on a peninsula with 3 coves on the property! Easy access to walk right down to the lake. One of the coves has a rock shelf perfect for sun bathing, watching the kids swim, catching up on your reading, etc. Private yard with mature trees sits on approx. 3.7 acres in a beautiful, relaxing setting. House is located extremely close to Rough River State Park and a marina so you can easily enjoy activities there. The house is 'America' themed on the inside with all new décor, bedding, towels, etc. You'll enjoy the granite countertops in the kitchen and the open concept floor plan with spacious living room, dining room and sunroom. The natural stone outdoor fire pit circle is great for roasting hotdogs, making smores, telling campfire stories and singing, or enjoy relaxing on the nearby porch with ceiling fan. And of course, you can fire up the gas grill for the perfect dinner. You can admire the beauty of the trees and the lake from the hammock in the back yard. Downstairs is set up for all the kids to enjoy their own space too with 4 sets of bunk beds (3 in one room and 1 in another bedroom) and a full bathroom with a shower. There is also a love seat, recliner, ottomans and a smart TV downstairs. Furnished with families in mind, a queen sized sleeper sofa upstairs also adds more flexibility for your group. In the 3 bedrooms upstairs there are queen sized beds. Also upstairs are two full bathrooms. If you can't quite get completely away from work, the house is set up with a desk and internet access. You'll also find plenty of TV's for your entertainment. The house is fully furnished with dishes, kitchen supplies, linens, towels, hair dryer, iron, ironing board and supplies of toilet paper, dish soap, laundry soap, paper towels, trash bags, etc. We are excited to share our lake house with you and are sure you will love the privacy and beauty of this place. It's a jewel on the lake in a very desired place! You can't get in a much better location for lake activities and privacy at the same time! The views of the lake are beautiful and the amount of lake frontage on our property is amazing. You can take a long walk along the shoreline, which all borders our property. We have fallen in love with this property, and we think you will too! Update for summer 2015! We are excited to have added an outdoor dining set, lots of outdoor seating an outdoor sofa down by the lake with a fire pit and a fire bowl on the back porch. We've even added some stone "creatures" by the rock fire pit on the side of the house for the little ones to enjoy. We've also added some outdoor games - a horse shoe pit, corn hole boards and ladder golf (or hillbilly golf as some call it)! If you do not see the days you want, please call me at 502-599-6790. We have some flexibility in scheduling and may be able to move dates around.

About Melanie Douglas

Tom and Melanie Douglas are both from Bardstown, KY and currently live in Shepherdsville, KY with their family. They both worked for others for 20 years and are now working for themselves in multiple businesses. They have been investing in real estate over the last several years to start working towards retirement. Maybe someday this will be the retirement home!

Melanie Douglas purchased this house in 2014

Why Melanie Douglas chose Kentucky

They chose this lake house because they loved the rock shelf in the first cove. It looked like the perfect place to relax, enjoy the lake, anchor a boat, or swim, all in the safety of the coves on this property. The land is a perfect combination of open area, to enjoy that family volleyball game or water balloon toss, or to wander into the shade trees and enjoy the breeze off of the lake. More than any property they looked at on the lake, this one had the perfect lake access with an easy walk down (and back up!). The inside of the home is clean, beautiful and updated. Visitors will enjoy this property and all it has to offer indoors and outdoors!

What makes this house unique

We looked at lots of properties on the lake and found this one to be the perfect combination of lake access, a beautiful back yard and a beautiful house. All in such a convenient location!

Family Thanksgiving!

  • 5 of 5

Drove up from Ga for a Thanksgiving visit with our family in Ky. There were 6 of us staying in the house and we had plenty of space for all. Love the fireplace and the backyard is wonderful! The view of the lights shining on the water at night is so beautiful. This was our 2nd time to stay in the house and we will definitely return.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

This property was great for our girls trip to get away! The bunk beds are beyond creaky so don't plan on getting any quality sleep down there if you're an adult, but the rest of the entire stay had no complaints by any of us!

Beautiful house, and property.

  • 5 of 5

This is great house and property. The house is well kept and the property is designed for entertaining. We had seven adult men for a reunion on the lake. We pulled up two small fishing boats on shore and kept one across the lake at the marina. There is a lagoon on the shore that is perfect for swimming and floating. The owner is very pleasant and easy to work with. Highly recommend.

Very Impressive

  • 5 of 5

Our group really enjoyed this house. It is beautifully decorated and comfortable. Our guys enjoyed the fishing and it is close enough to Leitchfield for flea market shopping for the ladies. And most of all it was a wonderful place to relax and enjoy our friends and families. We spent a lot of time around the outside tables and the fire pit.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The house and easy lake access is perfect. The owners have done everything right. The house is warm and inviting, beautifully decorated, very clean and the kitchen is supplied for all of your cooking needs both inside and out with the gas grill. The owners are very friendly and understanding. With the Rough River State park close by we were able to have our family reunion at the shelter house and then enjoy more family time at this home. We were all very impressed and hope to rent the property again.

Family retreat

  • 5 of 5

It is never easy getting the family (15) together under one roof anymore and the Lake House provided all we needed to succeed at this. It was large enough for the adults and kids to enjoy their stay. The expressions on the kids faces when we had to leave that morning said it all (they were sad faces from enjoying themselves so much for the weekend). They were so content with the Lake House they never mentioned getting out on the River until we said something about it. The men of the group were astounded as to how nice the place was and said we need to get this again. As for us girls keeping the kids and men happy made us happy. So we will be making reservations again next year. Thank you Melanie for providing us such a nice home to enjoy away from our homes. It was easy to find, clean and well-maintained with everything provided for us at the home and information in the Rough River area.
