About the property

2 bedroom, 1 bath Cabin with perfect year round Lake View

This is the perfect getaway for couples, small families or just the fishing guys. Our family cabin is located on beautiful Lake Cumberland.

Bring your own boat and wave runners or rent them at Jamestown Marina or State Dock, both only minutes away.

The Cabin is located 5 minutes by water to State & Jamestown docks and a 10 minute car drive to Wolf Creek Dam. The cabin is less than 10 minutes to the Cumberland River which has some of the best trout fishing in the south eastern US

Our Cabin is a 2 bedroom, 1 bath with a large screened in porch with a beautiful year round view of the lake. The cabin has an expansive deck and offers a stainless steel outdoor grill, teak bar, teak table and chairs for 8, nice teak day bed with the best mattress and several cozy wicker cushioned chair options. A great hammock under the trees for an afternoon of reading or taking a nap. Inside you have a nicely furnished kitchen with all the necessities to make a great meal; large refrigerator, 4 burner stove, oven, microwave, coffee pot, pots & pans hanging rack and a solid maple chopping block. The living room has a wood burning fireplace, leather coach & chairs, pull out full size sofa bed, 42' flat screen TV and DVD player to watch your favorite movies. Master bedroom has a queen size bed with high loft down comforter and a stackable washer/dryer in the closet area and the other bedroom has 2 twin beds.

About Stephanie

Our family has been coming to Clifty Creek at Lake Cumberland since the 70's. We had such great memories of our childhood at the lake and we wanted to make great memories with our kids ... a girl, 2 boys, 2 golden retrievers and 1 chocolate lab. In 2004, our family had the opportunity to purchase this cabin. Since then there has been very few weekends that we have not been at the cabin. It is such a special place no matter if its summer weekends, holidays, fall or snowing winter nights. We hope you enjoy this cabin and your time there as much as we have through the years.

Stephanie purchased this cabin in 2004

Lake Cumberland is 101 miles long and is one of the largest man-made lakes in the nation. Each year millions of visitors travel from all over the United States to come to the Lake Cumberland area to enjoy the rugged beauty of its 63,000 surface acres and 1,255 miles of wooded shoreline. Lake Cumberland touches several counties in southern Kentucky and ranks 9th in the US in size. Lake Cumberland has a capacity of 6.1 million acres of water, enough to cover the entire state of Kentucky with 3 inches of water. That’s roughly 1.9 trillion gallons of water.

Our Clifty Creek Cabin, is on Central time zone and is 5 minutes by water to Jamestown & State Docks. Great location. Tucked back up in Clifty Creek, no through boat traffic.

Beautiful area!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the lake and and the boat dock. The porch was a great area for gathering. House needs work. Maybe a bit pricey for the quality of house. Overall experience was fun! Thank you

The cottage met our needs perfectly.

  • 5 of 5

LOVE the boat dock! Easy access to the ramp and boat. We were able to come and go as we pleased instead of having to trailer the boat. 2 minute ride to Jamestown/State Dock. Also, loved the screened porch. We will be staying here again. Thanks!

Convenient Location, Cozy Housing, Friendly Community, Great Screened-in Porch

  • 3 of 5

We found the cabin adequate for our small group (3-4 adults and 2 young children). The porch was wonderful in spite of excessive heat, humidity, and long power outage. It was perfect for the 2 black labs who joined our troop. The location was great, the frig with ice-maker was wonderful as were most kitchen amenities (need a more complete flatware set and glassware). New bath - lovely! - Need more hooks for towels and window covering (water pressure very low but manageable). Overall we really enjoyed our stay. The housekeeping crew needs to be much more responsible and it was good to hear about plans for improvement in the near future. Curb appeal would not engage many people but the cabin has potential. It really would have been nice to have access to some type of television/cable for diversion. The owner was most gracious and accommodating. We will look forward to next visit and improvements that will be addressed.

Relaxing lakeside gem.

  • 4 of 5

While the launching ramp and dock access can be a bit taxing this cabin is pure relaxation with a view. We have rented several places around this beautiful lake but none with ease of access provided here. The cabin and fishing made for a great birthday getaway. Hope we can return next year.

Charming little lake house

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at this quaint lake house! The porch and dock were by far our favorites and where we spent all of our time. If you're looking for a modern rental this place is not for you. It's an older home with lots of charm. The walk to and from the dock can be a little challenging, but absolutely worth it. We absolutely plan to come back!
