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.

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.

Lovely area house needed deep cleaning

  • 3 of 5

The location and scenery were perfect. That is why 3 stars. The house needed a deep cleaning.The kitchen cabinets were sticky and a lot of mouse droppings which were found in the kitchen. I feel an exterminator needs to be called.The mouse was seen in a downstairs bedroom and my sister n law felt it on her bed! There also was a lack of end tables in some of the bedrooms so there was no place to put a remote control. The upstairs bathtub wouldn't drain so you would be standing in 4 inches of water and the shower curtain was filthy with stains.It is a huge house and room for all just needed work.

Owner's Response: We take each comment very seriously. We have been renting our private residence for over 10 years with more than 300+ rentals. This is the first negative review - 1 of 44. An exterminator has been out to the house to take care of the mouse. The cleaning crew was immediately notified upon receiving concerns. We've followed up with the current group at our house and the have found the house clean with no evidence of any mouse.

Million dollar view!!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home on Faubush Creek! We enjoyed every minute of our stay and we absolutely were taken by the peacefulness and serene beauty! The home had everything we could want or need to make our visit just perfect!! As we were told, the walk down to the water and back up was quite strenuous, but the heat made it more difficult than it probably would have been with lower humidity. We have been to many places where the accommodations are great but this one is right at the top!!

My husband and I, plus our family of 10 adults and 7 children ages 10-16, plus 2 babies went to stay at this large home for Thanksgiving this year.

We were very happy with the accommodation, scenery (even in winter) and the location. Everything was just as described and it worked out nicely for all of us with our differing ages and needs. We especially like the large great room where the cooks and clean-up crews didn't have to be apart from the rest while working. It even had seating for all of us which is not common, even in large houses. Thanks for helping us have a good weekend!
