VERY, VERY nice home....We knew that we chose the right place, as soon as we opened the front door!
Lure of the Lake is a VERY beautiful, and spacious home that is everything you could ever want for a vacation. Quiet setting, with plenty of room to stretch your legs out and relax. Our family spent a week here, and we loved every minute of it!
Got together with some friends at Lure of the Lake for a long weekend. Very well kept house, loved the wide-open main floor which allowed everyone to hang out even during meal prep. Made all of our meals at the house, and the well appointed kitchen had everything we needed. Nice big deck with a screened-in portion and a nice view of the lake. The fireplace and the sound system (including outdoor speakers) were welcome touches! Chris was friendly and responsive as well. Really enjoyed our stay and would definitely recommend.
Beautiful home and surroundings! We had such a great time just sitting on the deck (it was 73 in late Oct.) and enjoying the stunning fall colors right in front of us as well as the lake. We even played cards that evening in the screened in room on the deck. Sat.it rained and turned cold but there is plenty of shopping in Somerset (we spend 7 hrs.) just half an hour away. That night we had a wonderful fire in the huge fireplace and enjoyed our chili and grilled cheese sandwiches while watching the World Series. The kitchen is so well stocked with everything you would need to make anything,except the groceries of course! The roads there are all paved and well marked. Even at night it was easy to find our way back. We had dinner one evening at Guthrie's Grill. Great food,good prices,and a lovely view of the water. The only other place we ate out was the Tracks End for breakfast on Sat. Wonderfully filling and very good prices again. A simple little place tucked off 27 a bit. We would highly recommend Lure of the Lake. The house is so clean,towels are luxurious,and the beds are so comfy. There are plenty of deck chairs and tables and extra chairs to put at the fire pit. The screened in room has it's own cushioned furniture. The decor is just so perfect for a new lake home! The owners (Chris and Mike) are so friendly and helpful,it's like you have known them forever! If you are going to stay in this area,there is no better place.
Seven girlfriends gathered at Lure of the Lake and we had an absolutely wonderful time. We loved the deck overlooking the lake and especially the screened in porch where we would have our morning coffee. The upstairs living area was very spacious, so we were all able to gather together comfortably in front of the fireplace. The large kitchen was very well stocked and provided all that we needed to cook some fabulous meals together. I highly recommend Lure of the Lake.
Perfect Vacation Base
This was a wonderful property. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Big open floor plan on main level with access to a large deck, screened porch and a bedroom with full bath - perfect for my 80-something parents. The beds were all very comfortable. We really enjoyed the covered entry since we encountered a couple of days of rain.
We didn't really take advantage of the Lake, but the location is great for exploring the area - horse farms in Lexington, the Big South Fork Railway, Cumberland Falls and hiking in the Daniel Boone National Forest.
Chris and Mike were great. Chris promptly responded to every question. Mike greeted us to make sure we had everything and knew how to reach him if we had any problems.
Great house! Great Hosts! What more can you ask for?
6 School Girlfriends Get Away
The 6 of us had a wonderful time relaxing and reconnecting at the cabin which was perfect and exactly what we were looking for. A big great room which included the well stocked kitchen where we all enjoyed cooking together, the large dining room where we played games and cards & the comfy sofa and chairs in front of the majestic fireplace. And even better than all this was the wonderful patio overlooking the lake where we sat around eating, laughing and yes drinking a little wine. Mike & Chris were wonderful to work with and very accommodating. We all had a wonderful time and will definitely return!
