About Phyllis Johnson

We loved sharing our home (Edgewater Retreat) . Our guest said that they loved our home and enjoyed working with us. They were not happy because it stayed booked all the time. They kept wanting time that we didn't have open. This home Driftwood came open and was near our other one. So we took it on in order to try to help our guest that wanted to come back for a visit.

We are so excited with Driftwood.

We just love meeting and sharing our homes with our guest.

Its nice to help make family memories .

Phyllis Johnson purchased this house in 2014

Why Phyllis Johnson chose Lake Barkley

Driftwood is a nice size home and near our home Edgewater Retreat. It sits on the water so you have easy access to the water. Its secluded and makes for a great get away.

Most of our guest come and meet up with other family members to have

a reunion . So with the size of Driftwood it works very well.

So peaceful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We came here with 2 other families for one last summer getaway before our kids get back to school. It was so much fun!!! With 15 people and a dog, there was a worry that we would feel cramped. That was not the case at all. We had enough room for everyone to hang out together or for you to be alone if you just wanted a quick nap. The kitchen was so fully stocked it was amazing. If you can think of something you need, it is probably in the fantastic kitchen. Having the boat dock was such a wonderful amenity. As beautiful as the house is, the back deck was the favorite for all the adults. Just sitting out after a long day in the lake and watching the deer come up made every night so relaxing. Phyllis is a terrific hostess and she made sure that everything was taken care of and answered any of our questions very quickly. What a wonderful way to say goodbye to summer!!!

2nd Bi-Annual Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We were very impressed with the whole experience! Phyllis is a wonderful lady to work with! We enjoyed every minute that we were there, July 30 - Aug 6. Three out of 4 grandbabies were there and there was plenty for them to do! Fishing, kayaking, running around the yard and even had toys there for them to play with. We had a total of 14 with more than enough room to spare, never once did we feel cramped or in each others way.

My husband and I were so impressed with the area that we even asked Phyllis for the addresses of the other homes as he and I are talking about coming back in the fall.

Oh and the deer...oh my grandbabies thought this was just the greatest thing in the world that they would just walk up and not be afraid of the "humans" in the area. We also had our fur babies with us, which Phyllis just fell in love with, and there was more than enough house and yard space for them!!

Again, enjoyed it very much!!!

Two of my grand daughters were 1st in the door when I opened it. There were squeals of joy!

  • 4 of 5

The first 2 in the door said it was the most beautiful and biggest house ever! (They are 7 and 9). We had 7 adults and 9 young people ranging from 7 to 16, plenty of room for all of us. The 2 refrigerators was a big plus since we cooked most of our meals at the house. The fishing off the dock was fun, the girls caught and released 3 turtles. The fish were a little farther out as we discovered the day we rented a pontoon for the day and stopped by the house, the fish tried to jump into the boat. We loved that the Marina and the Beach were close by. A few of our party fell in love with the coffee shop in Cadiz and made several trips there. The last 2 days of our stay the humidity was high, so we all stayed in and played games and watched movies, having multiple tv's was a plus then too. The view was fantastic and we couldn't get enough of the deer. We would book this house again, if we did not need one more handicap accessible next time.

Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family comes together for vacation from various parts of the country and Kentucky is about the mid-point for everyone. We like being on the water and yet there was plenty of shade in the afternoon. The property is just the right size for our group with plenty of room for all. We will definitely consider this property again for our next vacation.

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had 15 in our group, 8 adults and our 7 grandchildren ages 1 year to 13. It was so nice and peaceful. The home is beautifully decorated, and so much space for all of us. There is a mobile hotspot which we did not use, and half of our phones didn't have signal, but we didn't mind because we were there to relax. We really enjoyed the back deck, and all the wildlife, especially the deer that we saw daily. Our fishermen really enjoyed the dock, and our 6 year old grandson caught a 5lb catfish, a memory I am sure will last a lifetime. Thank you Phyllis for sharing this beautiful home we would love to come back again.

Beautiful, comfortable place to have a family gathering.

  • 4 of 5

This is a beautiful home with an amazing view. The layout was perfect for our multiple family group. Our exercise enthusiasts enjoyed jogging up and down the steep driveway, and our outdoor lovers enjoyed the firepit and the deer that were clearly comfortable around people. We've always been a ping pong family, so that was a huge hit! The antique stores in Cadiz provided hours of shopping for the collectors in our family. We visited Patti's Establishment for lunch one day which was delicious! Make reservations BEFORE your trip!! Phyllis was friendly and available to answer our questions. The only thing we had trouble with, was keeping an even temperature throughout the house. If it was comfortable downstairs, it was way too hot upstairs. And when we got it comfortable upstairs, it was way too cold downstairs. But we made it work with frequent thermostat adjustments. Thank you again for your hospitality!
