About the property

Family-Friendly 4BR, 4BA House on Point Lot

Shelter Point Retreat (North) is a four-bedroom, four-bathroom house on Kentucky Lake that serves as a wonderful escape from the hustle and bustle of everyday life. The main 3BR/3BA house offers beautiful views of the main lake while a brand-new 864-square foot apartment just steps from the main house gives extra space for families and friends to gather together.

The separate apartment with a kitchen, living room, bathroom, and bedroom is included in any reservations. This space was added in spring 2017.

The whole property a great place to make memories with your loved ones. Situated on a point lot, this property offers beautiful views of the main lake and access to the water with its private, covered dock on a small bay.

*** NEED MORE SPACE? Ask us about special pricing to rent this house along with the neighboring house ( Then you'd have the whole lakefront point to yourself! ***

The master bedroom has a king bed, attached bathroom, and access to the deck. A second bedroom has a queen-sized bed. The third bedroom has two sets of extra-long twin bunks, which are fun for kids but still comfortable for adults. The second bathroom is adjacent to this bedroom but accessible from the main hallway.

The kitchen and living room offer an open area for people to gather together and has easy access to the large deck, which has additional seating and beautiful views of Kentucky Lake. A charcoal grill also is housed on the deck.

The walk-out basement – which was renovated in early 2017 – includes a second living room with a second dining table as well as a queen-sized sofa bed as well as a brand-new full bathroom. The washer and dryer are also in the basement.

Outside, renters have access to a private dock for boating, fishing and swimming; a fire pit; two kayaks; and various adult- and child-sized life jackets.

Great lakehouse with an amazing view of KY lake!

  • 5 of 5

This lakehouse was a great fit for our group of 13. Beautiful view of the lake, the house was comfortable and well stocked. Enjoyed the little extras like the fire pit, kayaks, great dock, extra towels and bedding. The garage apartment was great for our family of four and having the extra fridge was nice for all the food we had for the weekend! :) Great place to get away for a long weekend!

Fantastic place for a family gathering!

  • 4 of 5

Loved the place. Has everything you need. Very clean. Easy access to drop a boat in. Dock to house it. Never rented a house before. Usually a hotel kind of family but, I can say I'd come back here in a heartbeat. Thanks Shelter Point.

Fun long weekend with extended family

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 13 had a wonderful stay at Shelter Point. There was plenty of room for everyone, and the house is nicely stocked. The highlight of our stay, though, was the boat dock, huge yard, and lake toys. We had a blast kayaking, paddle boarding, and swimming off the dock. Kenlake Marina is fairly close, and it was a quick trip to rent jet skis and a pontoon. The owners are wonderful to work with and responded very quickly when we had questions. It was a great stay!

Shelter Cove is simply an awesome place for a family gathering!

  • 5 of 5

We had 14 staying at the house for 4 nights. Everyone enjoyed their stay The kitchen's are well supplied, along with games, puzzles & kayaks in case you got bored but how could you in this lovely cove. The apartment was a perfect place to put our 82 year old mom. She could just slip away when she got tired or tired of our over active group. The dock was perfect we had a 36' boat, pontoon boat & little fishing boat tied up and still had room to swim around in the cove. Good times down at the fire pit watching the full moon rise. Owner was quick to respond to inquiries & sending the deposit back. Doesn't get better than that!

Absolutely amazing place! Will book again!

  • 5 of 5

We took a group to this property for a retreat (along with their adjacent property) and we loved it! The houses were so nice and clean, and recently remodeled. They had thought of everything anyone would need. The new apartment that is included is great! The pictures do not do the homes justice; they are even bigger and better than they appear online. We were able to swim off the docks and kayak and fish with the equipment provided. The owners were excellent to work with and had put great thought into what people might need or want during their stay. Very impressed and will definitely book again!
