About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12)

This new (2006) luxury lakefront home is Lake Cumberland Resort's largest rental home. It features over 4000 square feet of air conditioned space plus approximately.1500 square feet of covered and open air decking.

Our home features five bedrooms (three king-size, one queen, two full, one sleeper sofa and one crib) and four and a half baths.

The two-story great room features a gas fireplace with stone surround and an amazing view of the lake. We have upgraded (2013) the television to 55" flat panel with stereo surround.

Relax on the front covered wrap-around porch featuring rocking chairs and a swing. Or, opt for the 14 X 26 rear finished porch with cathedral ceiling and recessed lights. The rear porch offers a direct view to the lake and is equipped with ceiling fan, eating area for 10 and separate sitting/food prep area. We have added HVAC to rear porch for year round use. Folding tables and chairs are available for dining of more than 10 guests. We have also added a second refrigerator to the rear porch as we have learned that guests staying for a week bring a lot of food and beverage with them!

The master suite located on the main level boasts a jacuzzi tub with separate shower and its own private deck. Adults and children both rave about the finished lower level recreation room complete with wet bar, mini refrigerator, billiard table, foosball, ping pong, bar with 6 stools, and a poker table. We have added a touch screen video gamer as well that is fun for all ages. There is also a sectional sofa with a big screen TV for movies and sports! The lowel level TV is perfect for kids brining their xbox or playstation gaming system with them.

There is a large collection of games and toys for toddlers/children and even adults for evening entertainment. Step out of the lower level recreation room to another large screened porch featuring a six person hot tub and benches for relaxing. A second patio on the lower level boasts a swing facing the lake.

The house is equipped with whole house stereo/CD player with separate volume controls in each critical area. For smaller children, a second floor loft features a TV with VCR/DVD and is stocked with Disney movies as well as Nintendo 64. Babies/toddler's needs will also be met as there is a crib, high chair and toddler booster seat, double stroller and many toys/books and magazines.

Our home is located approximately 300 yards from the boat ramp(check for availablity) and pool(seasonal) and has a large driveway available for boat/jet ski and multiple car parking. It is very easy to park your boat in our driveway and move it back and forth to the boat ramp! The driveway is about 120" long and double

Lake Cumberland Resort, Kentucky's finest gated community, offers three swimming pools (one is walking distance from our house),on-site restaurants, tennis court, children's play area, and a country store for basic supplies including fuel. The resort is situated on a 1000 acre peninsula adjacent to the Daniel Boone National Forest- the perfect place to explore on an ATV.

PLEASE NOTE*** Our home is not part of the Lake Cumberland Resort rental program. This means that the owner rents the home himself instead of using the resort rental agency. Guests still have access to all resort amenities. Please contact Owner Kevin Cox via email or cell phone listed. .

About kevin Cox

My wife and I bought the lakefront lot in 2002 when we were first married with a vision of family vacations at the lake. Construction followed a few years later in 2005. This is our only vacation home and you will find many upscale amenities normally not found in rental homes. It is also the reason why we rent the home ourselves to make sure we personally speaking with all our prospective tenants and find just the right fit! For us, we wanted to be on the lake all day and then have the finer amenities at night. We built the home large enough to always bring friends and family with us.

kevin Cox purchased this house in 2002

Why kevin Cox chose Lake Cumberland

We believe the home is the perfect place for multiple families to gather. It is large enough to accommodate multi generations of families meeting from all over the country. With the addition of the large finished porch, the entire family can eat meals together. However, the home also offers plenty of space for peace and quiet with kids playing outside or in the lower level while the adults relax on the main level. There is nothing better than a long day of boating on the most beautiful lake in the country (personal opinion) followed by a perfect family meal and gathering in an upscale home. Our kids love the home because the large front yard and the property offers opportunities to play kickball and other activities like bike riding and frog catching.

What makes this house unique

If you search large family vacation homes, rarely will you find these homes built with large dining rooms. It is not a priority when building a vacation home. However, we heard from many of our guests that they wanted to have family meals in one central location. Converting our screen porch to a four-season room in 2014 was the answer. We keep the lake views and added a dining table for table with room to add more seating.

Excellent Location for relaxation and fun!

  • 5 of 5

Three separate families (6 adults and 2 grand children) had a tremendous time at this large well kept/clean home. We all had different "parts" of the house. We ate meals together but never felt cramped. Plenty of kitchen space and all the utensils we needed to cook and grill. The downstairs game room was a big hit. We had pool tournaments as well as heated pin pong matches late into the evenings! The private balcony off the master bedroom was especially nice 1st thing in the morning for a cup of coffee. We plan on making this an annual trip and will bring a bigger group next time.

Cozy mountain mornings by the fire, fun nights playing pool and ping pong

  • 4 of 5

Lake Cumberland is an area of hidden gems that is for sure and this house is one of them. Sitting on the bank of the river with a view of the mountainside this gorgeous family retreat provided us an amazing spring break get away with our family and friends. Lots of big cozy beds and bathrooms, fun family places and plenty of private places. The big deck and screen porch add even more space. Its a gorgeous drive down mountain roads to get to the property but so worth it when you get there. Hopefully you have at least one day with some rain while you are visiting because the beautiful pop up waterfalls that appeared on the mountain across the river were amazing.

wonderful home

  • 5 of 5

My family, along with both of my sisters and their families and my parents, stayed in this home for 4 days in April. We had a wonderful time. The home was clean and well maintained. That is a big deal to me as I have issues with germs and such. I didn't feel any anxiety about staying here.

The kitchen had everything we needed for cooking. The bedrooms were big and comfortable. Even with all of the family together, there was plenty of space to have some quiet, alone time if one wanted it.

The children loved the hot tub, the deck, the pool table and the giant tv area in the basement. They also loved the big chess set. Who knew 6 to 10 year olds would enjoy chess so much?

The view is beautiful. We loved exploring the neighborhood and doing a little fishing.

Perfect restful retreat for a large group

  • 5 of 5

We rented this lovely home for an Easter weekend gathering of a large community service group, and found the setting to be perfect! Multiple large comfortable gathering areas, plenty of bedrooms and bathrooms, a large well equipped kitchen, a driveway large enough for 10 vehicles, and a wonderful large diningroom to serve as a gathering spot for meals.

We thoroughly enjoyed our 5 day stay, and give this property our highest recommendation for large groups.

Beautiful Home!

  • 4 of 5

My family stayed at this lovely home in Sept. It sits on a quiet street and is beautifully appointed inside and out. We were however very disappointed with the view. The picture labeled "view from the deck" is inaccurate. The foliage is so overgrown that the water is not really visible. My aging father was hoping to walk to the water's edge to fish but this was impossible. The other pictures are spot on and it is truly a beautiful home. I know how much I depend on the reviews of others when picking a rental and so want to be honest.

We visited Cumberland Falls which were stunning and enjoyed dining at the old Hotel near the falls.We also enjoyed a day trip to Mammoth Cave approx. 2 hours from this house. There are several Marinas within driving distance with watercraft rentals available. Overall this is a beautiful, spacious home very comfortable for large gatherings.

Owner's Response: We are pleased that the overall review of the home is favorable. In addressing the comment regarding the "view from the deck of the lake" it must be pointed out that Lake Cumberland is a federally controlled lake. The Army Corp Of Engineers controls all the land within a certain distance of the lake as well. To preserve the natural beauty and rustic nature of the lake, the Corp does not allow any trees, shrubs, or foliage to be removed from any properties. Violators of this policy face significant fines. The corp also does not allow any boat docks to be installed on the lake. When you spend time on the lake in a boat you will notice what I am referring to in preserving the natural state of the lake. We are only allowed to keep a natural walking trail down to the lake from the back of our home. From April through October, it is estimated the foliage restricts 50% of the view of the lake from the rear of the home. Most guests wishing to walk to the lake will choose to walk up the street to the community boat ramp.
