About WOW Properties, LLC

We have been dear friends for at least 30 years, and decided to start WOW Properties, LLC when we found Sunset Cottage in the Fall of 2016. We are lovers of the lake and outdoors, and wanted to capture memories with our young adult and tween children. We decided to list Sunset Cottage through VRBO since we live in Owensboro, KY, and are unable to be at the lake full time. Sunset Cottage is our Happy Place, and we feel positive that it will become a favorite of yours as well.

WOW Properties, LLC purchased this house in 2016

Why WOW Properties, LLC chose Lake Barkley

Simply stated...the view, the lake, the beautiful home. We fell in love....

What makes this house unique

We fell in love with Sunset Cottage because of the design, and the fabulous views of the lake and sunset.

Beautiful home with a beautiful vista.

  • 5 of 5

Sunset Cottage at Lake Barkley is a well appointed home with plenty of amenities. My sisters and cousins (there were five of us), had a wonderful time and enjoyed our stay with most the time spent in the screened porch. We home cooked our meals, there were enough kitchen supplies and seasonings for our creations, as well as lovely dinnerware to serve them on. The Wallace family are great hosts, whatever questions I had they were readily available to assist us with our needs.

Cadiz is a lovely community with antique stores, craft stores and a small art museum. Lake Barkley is beautiful especially when viewed from the upper deck of our cottage, a joy to watch the boaters and the barges go by. Wildlife there is plentiful with deer and turkey visiting in the morning and evening hours along with plenty of egrets, eagles, osprey, terns and warblers that visited the upper deck everyday, very enjoyable to watch. Overall, it was a great place to relax, a nicely decorated home in a great area. I would recommend to anyone to stay at Sunset Cottage at Lake Barkley and I would also revisit this wonderful home.

Owner's Response: Hi Glenda, I'm glad you and your family had a great time at Sunset Cottage. Thank you for your feedback regarding our private covered dock. You may not be aware that the Army Corp of Engineers regulates the size of all docks on Lake Barkley and that our dock is the maximum size allowed by the Corp of Engineers. In addition to providing our guests with a private covered dock we also provide electricity, water and jet ski platforms at our dock for their convenience. We strive to make every guest experience the best it can be so if the Army Corp of Engineers ever decide to increase the maximum square footage allowed on docks we will certainly take advantage of it. Thanks again and we hope that you will visit Sunset Cottage again soon!

Great location, Beautiful house and warm Lake!

  • 5 of 5

6 adults and 5 children had plenty of space in this beautiful cottage on Lake Barkley! The kitchen is well stocked, which was great because we used it a lot! Loved the dock and the warm water, we were in it everyday! The Kayaks were a big hit and one day we rented 2 jet skis which was awesome! Having a fire down by the water at night was just beautiful! Great location for a family gathering!

Great property with your own private island

  • 5 of 5

Outside living area was great.

Beds are very comfortable.

I brought jet skis so the floating docks for the ski's was awesome

Outside fire pit was a great way to end the nights.

Very little light pollution so the night sky was awesome.

Was big enough for 6 adults and 10 kids.

House was well equipped.

Owners of the house made sure everything was perfect for our week long visit.

We had a great time here! The house is exactly like the pictures. The kitchen was well stocked. This was also a great location on the lake. The dock was perfect for our group and the kids loved the screened in porch for drying off. We would definitely recommend and would love to go back!
