About the property

House, 5 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 12-16)

Our home is situated on Faubush Creek - Lake Cumberland, which is a 3-4 mile finger off of the main lake at Cumberland Point Recreation Area. Our home is surrounded by seven acres of frontage property and wooded hillside. It is the perfect location for your Lake Cumberland vacation rental to enjoy with your family and friends. This split level home, with five bedrooms and over 4,400 square feet of living space, offers some of the finest vacation lodging you will find around Lake Cumberland. The view is incredible whether you are taking it in while relaxing on the deck that spans the back of the house or sitting in the hot tub on the walkout porch below.

Main Floor: Foyer, Half-Bath, Living Area, Dining Area, Kitchen, Fireplace, Master Bedroom, Master Bath, Laundry

Lower Level: Living Area (Two Futons), Pool Table, Wet Bar, Full-Sized Refrigerator, Bedroom (King), Full Bath (Shower)

Occupancy - 12 Adults/Children + Up to 4 Additional Children. 16 Maximum including children. No more than 12 Adults unless approved by owner. Ideal for 8 Adults plus children.

Private, path access, down to the lake. Just beyond the firepit, you will find the 12-by-12 look-out deck. From the deck, you then make your way down approximately 125 steps (with several landings, of course). When you reach the bottom of the steps you will be 1/2 way down the hill. The steps will meet the path. The remaining descent is natural terrain that begins very steep and then a gradually tapers off. The trek down to the lake can be challenging for some and is not recommended for the elderly or those with physical impairments. Once you reach to bottom of the hill there is a picnic/camping area and a cove to swim in or anchor/tie-off your boat.

The lake levels are back up so we once again have a nice cove to swim and anchor/tie-up boat. Shoreline is now larger graduated shale rock.

Our home is located in Nancy, Kentucky, approximately 25 minutes from the city of Somerset. This Lake Cumberland vacation rental home offers the perfect get-away for up to four to six couples or two to three families.

Enjoy beautiful Lake Cumberland in the day and relax and enjoy our home in the evening. Bring your own boat or rent one at Lee's Ford Marina or Conley Bottom Marina. A public boat ramp is located just 15 minutes away at Cumberland Point State Park. You can anchor/tie up your boat along the shoreline while you are at our home.

About LeAnn McDonald

We had been houseboaters and campers for many years at Lake Cumberland...Once the kids came along we wanted to share Lake Cumberland with them...but kids needed more space than a houseboat had to offer. They like to explore and run around. Camping gave the kids more freedom, but we also liked having running water, a hot shower, amenities of your home kitchen and of course, a good mattress. Although we are no longer camping...we are very close to the woods and we still build a morning fire or a evening camp fire.

We make several trips a year to Lake Cumberland but when we are not using our home we like to share it with others.

LeAnn McDonald purchased this house in 2002

Why LeAnn McDonald chose Nancy

We absolutely love Lake Cumberland. It is the best lake for boating, water-skiing, tubing, fishing...and of course doing the FLOATILLA. The water is deep and clean and goes on for miles. For the most part...very little boat traffic. Lake Cumberland is a man-made lake that his not heavily commercialized...therefore it is surrounded by the natural heavily wooded hillside. There are homes that overlook the lake but they are generally high up on the hillside.

We appreciate the home year round though. It is a great place to get away from reality. The fall is especially pretty when all the leaves are changing color. The spring is beautiful when all the trees begin to bloom. The cool evenings again are great for having a campfire. The winter time it is quiet and peaceful. Its a good place for family and/or friend time.

What makes this house unique

The best thing about staying at our home is you will get away from the hustle and bustle of life. It takes you to a place to forget about life for a while.

You may also get a little more exercise than normal depending on how many trips you make up and down to the lake. It can be a challenge to climb up/down the staircase and hill to the lake. This of course will make up for all the eating and drinking you will be doing while you are there.

There is a great view for those who don't want to go down to the lake. For those who do not have a boat, but want to explore the lake, there are 2 marina's near by in which you can rent watercraft.

We have wifi, satellite tv and a stereo system. Don't forget about the hot tub and pool table that will also keep you entertained.

Huge house, Great location

  • 4 of 5

We recently stayed at this house for a large family vacation. There were 4 families on our trip, with 8 adults and 9 children. (The owner approved an extra person above the stated capacity and we paid slightly extra per night.) A few of our kids are quite young so it was no problem for them to sleep in pack-and-plays or cots in rooms with the adults. The house had plenty of space for all of us to spread out and be comfortable during the day time, with multiple living rooms and tons of kitchen and dining room space. It's much larger in real life than it looks in the pictures, and it's very sound proof from one floor to the other which was helpful with that many kids.

The kitchen was great, very spacious and well stocked. We had everything we needed to cook meals for our large group. It was ideal for kids, with a cabinet full of games and a small play room with a doll house, duplos, trucks and cars, etc. Our kids had fun with the VHS collection and watched a lot of old Disney movies. The front yard was great for playing frisbee and soccer.

We were worried about the walk down to the lake after reading the reviews, and it was strenuous but not impossible. My 3 year old was able to do it on his own, although there was certainly some whining on the way back up the hill. The swimming area was very calm and private and the kids had a blast. We brought rafts and noodles and kayaks and hung out in the water for hours. I definitely recommend water shoes or sturdy sandals to swim in because the rocks were pretty sharp.

We did have two issues while we were there. The hot tub never got above 86 degrees, even after trying to trouble shoot the error code with the owner via text. It was summer so not a huge problem, but it would have been nice to use it. And on the morning we were leaving the kitchen sink sprung a leak and we had a bit of a mess to clean up, but I assume that's all been taken care of. Those are understandable problems for a busy rental house to have.

Over all, we had a great stay and I would highly recommend this house to other large groups looking for lake access and a nice quiet stay. Our family would certainly consider staying there again in the future!

Great Family Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

The owners are extremely helpful & informative! We went as a family/group of friends with kids aged 2-13 & the House was set up perfectly with three living areas & 5 bathrooms so each family had privacy. The best part of the House was the back deck with beautiful view & plenty of seating for everyone to enjoy together! The trek down to the lake is rugged, but so worth it! I would definitely recommend this house to anyone who is outdoor adventurous!

Perfect... just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We celebrated our 5th annual girls trip in this beautiful home. It provided more than enough space for 8 ladies and was stocked with everything you could possibly need. Scott and LeAnn are wonderful to work with. The view of the lake and the sunsets off the back deck are stunning. The open floor plan and ample living room seats makes gathering so easy. I manage a property on homeaway so I expect a little more than most and this home surpassed all of our expectations! We highly recommend it and can foresee another girls weekend here!

Enjoyable weekend in fall colors

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend in this property. The owners, LeAnn and Scott, were pleasant to interact with, responded promptly to inquiries, and facilitated the check-in and -out process. The house is well-stocked with kitchen appliances, pool table, hot tub, tv, wifi. The layout of the house is unusual, but worked well for our needs. The scenery was delightful, and we enjoyed watching the people put their boats in and out of the lake below us. The house was very clean. This was our second time renting here, and it remains on our list of places to go in the future.
