About the property

4 bedroom, 3 full bath with screened porch - secluded cove access to lake

Relax and enjoy the beauty of Dale Hollow Lake from our house Feelin' Jolly on Jolly Creek with beach access to Jolly Creek in a secluded cove just a 2 minute walk away. Feelin' Jolly provides the benefits of a lake house with ready access to the lake and boating and the benefits of a cabin in the woods. Feelin' Jolly is perfect for families and friends to have a relaxing stay in the woods with easy access to Dale Hollow Lake for some great boating, skiing, hiking, and some of the best fishing around. Jolly Creek is a secluded cove so you don't have to worry about fighting the crowd when it comes to boating, fishing, swimming or just plain old relaxing. Jolly Creek is one of only two locations on the sprawling Dale Hollow lake with 600 plus miles of lake shoreline that you can walk to your very own water cove, simply captivating. Just outside our cove to the right is a full slalom course. Just outside our cove to the left is the main channel of Dale Hollow lake. Our cabin is located in an area that provides easy access to either Sunset Marina or Star Point Marina.

Why Dan Steward and Jay Ludwick chose Byrdstown

We have been to many different lakes and fell in love with Dale Hollow Lake and specifically our secluded beach access on Jolly Creek.

What makes this cabin unique

There are very few properties on Dale Hollow Lake that have beach access to the lake within a short walk from a house.

Great place to stay. Definitely will return.

  • 5 of 5

Feeling Jolly is the best lake house we have ever rented. The price is unbeatable. Very very clean. The screened in porch made relaxing that much better. Access to the lake is perfect. Whoever owns this, really cares about the renters and their needs. Newly updated bathrooms and lower bedrooms, made us feel like home. The only negative we have, is we didn't want to leave.

Nice for a relaxing getaway from everything.

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is very nice and accommodating for a large group. It's close enough to everything you need, yet far enough away that you feel like there's no one else around. Steps away from the lake and minutes from the marina for your boating pleasure! We really enjoyed the screened in porch for keeping our two year old contained and enjoying fresh air.

Quiet, Comfy, and Conveniently Located!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay! It was only a 10 min drive for groceries, and the lake is just a 2 minute walk or a 30 second drive. And the cabin floor plan was perfect for 8-12 people!

We also made the short drive to the hiking trail to see the cave! It was such a great little excursion... just took a couple of hours out of our morning... and the cave was a great place to cool off from the hot summer sun.

The only thing to note on the downside is that there is no long distance service on the cabin phone for calling out, and we had no cell phone service. The wifi worked, but it was a little slow. If you are really looking to "get away," this is a GREAT place! And the owners were very quick to respond to any questions we had. We would highly recommend this cabin!
