About the property

5 BR 2&1/2 bath home overlooking Palisade of KY RIver. Incredible view, private

This property is unique in that it is remote yet near so many places. The master bedroom is downstairs with a private bath, private sitting area with television , king size sleep number bed and a private deck with a large outdoor hot tub. Four bedrooms are upstairs connected by a common den with a vaulted ceiling. Each of those bedrooms has a very comfortable king, queen or double bed. There is a 46 foot screened porch on the front with plenty of sitting room including rocking chairs and a porch swing! There is a large deck off the back dining room as well with table, chairs and a gas grill. Everything you need to make a perfect getaway in Central KY. The open space and extra wide interior doors doors wide which make it easy for wheelchairs. We also have a portable ramp to use for the 2 steps up into the house if needed. The entire house is very open with extra tall and vaulted ceilings and lots of exposed wood. Spacious kitchen with all amenities you would want, gas BBQ grill. . As we are near Shaker Village we have decorated the house with Shaker style furniture and primitive American decor. This is the perfect place to gather with family or friends and enjoy nature while being close to so much!!

About Lisa Williams

Jamie and Lisa worked , saved and dreamed for 18 years before finding and acquiring this farm. In 1998 we then built our "dream home" on the farm where we raised our three children. When the last child went off to college we moved to Central America to do volunteer humanitarian work which then turned into employment. The farm was a working warmblood horse breeding operation until Lisa's health necessitated we stop. At this point we removed fences and turned the farm "back to nature". Wildlife abounds as one would imagine. Half the farm is wooded and the other half we mow once annually.

Lisa Williams purchased this lodge in 1996

Why Lisa Williams chose Wilmore

We believe this farm is the most beautiful place on the earth. Though we are probably a little biased, our past friends/guests comment on how peaceful and beautiful the home is as well as the setting. Back in the 1800's and early 1900's there was a "stagecoach house" on the property and it was the place folks spent the night before crossing into Mercer County by going over the KY River. Unfortunately, the previous owner took down the limestone rock house, but we were able to use some of the stones as a foundation and skirting for the home we built. At least one Revolutionary war relic has been found on the property. We understand the Shakers used to cross over the KY and come to our "Indian Creek" grist mill to grind their corn.

What makes this lodge unique

For Lisa my favorite place on the farm is the front porch swing. When recovering from a very difficult time of life this spot was my "special place". You can see for miles from the front porch or the back of the house. It is a great place to spend 4th of July because you can see the fireworks from 3 different counties! We have memories of foals and calves romping, a lush garden and canning much of our own produce. Our son used to have his friends over to go into the woods for hours and do "paintball" Our kids would often bring their sleeping bags to sleep on the floor in the great room by the wood stove in the winters. This is a very unique and spiritual place!

Private serene retreat

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful hilltop property. Very private and away from it all. This was a great spot for our family to attend a wedding at Shakertown. Even nicer than the pictures show, there is lots of room inside and out. It was great to hike the road and property, watch herds of deer from the living room, shoot some hoops, or enjoy quiet moments in the hot tub.

Old country home

  • 5 of 5

Nice house, great views, lots of room to spread out.

FYI, the last turn to get on their drive way is an underwater bridge. Make the turn, don't go straight.
