About the property

Water-Front Vacation Home

This beautifully appointed home sits water side on Buckhorn Bay, beside the Moor's Resort. It features a very large gentle sloping back yard directly on Kentucky Lake. The home has its own private dock included (no boat). The covered dock is lighted and has electricity. Lake water levels may restrict the use of the dock, usually beginning in late August although the property has plenty of parking for boats and trailers. A nice boat ramp is located in the bay. The home features a large dining room for seating up to 12 guests, there are 4 bedrooms and will sleep 10 guests. Two full bathrooms, laundry facility, Wi-Fi, fully equipped kitchen and a large family room. The exterior spaces feature 2 car covered parking spaces, a large lake-side deck, and a lower patio with a fire pit and grill.

absolutely stone left unturned. ..everything as stated PLUS

  • 5 of 5

This property is exactly as stated PLUS. ..we were totally impressed. Everything we could possibly need was provided. We were grandma grandpa, our son, wife and 3 children ages 3,6,8. Toys, games, loved the bunkbeds. We spent hours on the covered dock fishing sun and rain. Its a gentle slope down to the dock but we rented a golf cart and that did make it easier on my old knees.

1 adult bedroom had its own bath and both bedrooms had tv's. Plus the big screen in the great room. We loved having a washer and dryer on the premises. We put our boat in 2 minutes down the road and got bait at Moors 5 minutes away. Two cute markets are less than 10 minutes down the road. We did miss having a beach but accessed the one at Moors everyday. I think it private but I won't tell if you wont. Nobody seemed to care and there was never anybody there . We've rented a few houses here and there and would put this one at the top of the list. Beautiful view from the deck and firewood provided for the firepit. Really, nothing was left out.

Great Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful accomadations, everything you need including a park like setting in the back yard where the kids had a blast playing and hanging out. We brought a boat and there are at least 2-3 boat ramps within 5 min of the

house. The house also comes with your own covered boat slip which is a short walk through the back yard. Overall just a great place and very friendly owners, you wont be disappointed. We will definitely be coming back to stay again.

Spring break at Kentucky Lake

  • 4 of 5

Well maintained, clean and spacious home with everything you need.

The home is near the lake but the lake level was super low in this whole area and so not very scenic with a lot of muddy ground exposed. You could not fish from the shore or boat piers due to the low water level.

Owner's Response: The lake is lowered in the winter months to help with flood control. The summer lake levels are raised the third week of April thru Labor Day.

Precious memories

  • 4 of 5

We greatly enjoyed our time on this property. The owner was very nice and helpful. Everything one could need was on-site. Kitchen was well stocked. We were disappointed we could not bring our boat to the dock at the house due to the low water level, but this was well communicated as a possibility in advance. Other docks are very close by. The lot was perfect for games and awesome family time. We particularly enjoyed the amazing fire-pit and sitting on the lovely deck. My granddaughter loved the neighbor's cat as well. Thanks for an awesome weekend. We would not hesitate to rent this property again.
