Great modern house deep in the woods

  • 5 of 5

This place was perfect for a golf stay and play weekend. We played Woodson Bend and General Burnside Island which were both within 20 minutes of the house. It's secluded but also close to many area attractions. Will definitely be coming back!

Relaxing with everything we needed

  • 5 of 5

Four adults and two children loved our time at Lure of the Lake. We were close to the falls and many gorgeous hikes. The cabin was beautiful and amazingly comfortable. We enjoyed every minute of our stay.

Beautiful cabin with a fabulous view in a lovely area

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was perfect for our stay. Our hosts were very helpful and super responsive to e-mails. The back patio is huge with really great views. It's a short drive over to Cumberland Falls and also to the Natural Arch park area. There's lots of good hiking around both, although most trails are rated at least moderate in difficulty. The kitchen is well stocked, so I would suggest making use of it. (We didn't really.) But we did build a nice fire in the fireplace! The bedroom on the main floor is huge and lovely with a king sized bed and attached bathroom. We had a fabulous stay.

Lure of the Lake

  • 5 of 5

This cabin is absolutely awesome! It overlooks Lake Cumberland, we had deer feeding in the front yard every night, the stars were breathtaking. It is the most well stocked place we have ever stayed (linens, towels, kitchenware, laundry facility,parking and firewood). We visited nearby Burnside Park and Cumberland Falls, both places were very nice. The owners were super attentive in making sure all of our needs were met. The ice maker had not been working and they made sure to provide a large bag of ice and have the repairman was out the day of our arrival. Cleaning deposit was refunded within a day! I recommend this place to anyone looking for a beautiful cabin getaway out of the noise and bustle of town.

We were new to the area and enjoyed all of the natural beauty the area had to offer. It was amazing

  • 5 of 5

The house was stellar and is a must see! It was immaculate and offered all of the amenities required for a great stay. It accommodated seven adults easily, and the beds were comfortable. The kitchen was great and the living areas were inviting. We sort of felt guilty that we didn't spend more time in the house as our iteniary had us enjoying the natural beauty of the area and visiting caves.

The homeowners were very warm and friendly and made us feel very welcomed. We travel all over and that is not taken for granted. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you and we look forward to coming back!!!

Perfect spot for a women's retreat!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot for 7 women who all hold the title of wife, mom, sister, aunt, and cousin - to spend a weekend away from responsibility! The home is beautiful and looks just like the photos. There wasn't a single thing that we were missing in the home... even down to the newspaper to get our fire started in the fire pit! We enjoyed the house and patio so much that we only left once to get groceries. Many memories were made in this home we filled with laughter. Looking for reasons to come back again. Mike & Chris were fantastic and genuinely happy we were there. Thanks for everything!
