Better than we expected
The pictures of Nichols Lodge on VRBO don't do it justice. It is a great house with lots of character. This place was much larger than we thought and was a perfect place for our family reunion. We truly enjoyed all aspects of the house...kitchen, dining room, game room, living room, porch and the fact that each bedroom had its own bathroom was a blessing. The house had the privacy like a retreat center yet the comfort of home with plenty of gathering space for our group of 13. We used the pool daily and Penny was diligent about keeping it clean. It really was nice having her there and working with her. A great bonus was being able to rent the pontoon boat so that we had lake access from the dock. We would definitely rent this house again. Despite the updates that would make this house more "modern" the 70's style definitely had its appeal...we stepped back in time and really connected as a family. The wifi wasn't great like others have said, however, we saw that as a bonus, because we spent more time together rather than on devices. We had 6 adults over 50 and 7 "kids" between 13 -27 years old. Thanks Penny for taking such good care of the place. We truly enjoyed our vacation on Lake Barkely.
Fun family time
There was plenty of room for our family. They loved the pool and hot tub. Space was good they we could spread out in all directions
Third time is a charm
Our family vacation at Nichol Lodge was great. We all had a good time, 16 of us mostly adults. Penny did a great job as before. The pool was sparkling clean every day. They have a great kitchen and if we needed anything Penny would get it for us right away. This is our third year to vacation at the lodge and it is a great place to stay.
thank you Richard for your kind words hope the lodge will be able to accommodate your needs in the up coming years
Thank You again
Penny us the best part of our stay . Wifi needs to
Not having a boat created a hardship on us since we bought fishing licenses but thanks to Penny's husband , he helped and the last night and day were hooked up with a boat and enjoyed 2 sunset cruises 🍀Wifi needs improvement . Everything else was good
New dining room was GREAT . Back next year .
Second time is even better
This was the second time we stayed in Nichol Lodge, the first time was 4 years ago. The best thing about Nichol Lodge this time was the caretaker Penny. This lady did every thing she could to make our stay better. The house was clean and spotless. She cleaned the pool every day but you never knew she was around except if we called her for something. Their were 16 of us and this was year 27 for our family vacation. We have rented many places all over the southern Midwest but I must say this was the best. If I could only change one thing I would ask for a better wifi system. This one works but sometimes it was hard to log on but that is a very minor problem. We are taking a vote of the family and it looks like we will go back again next year.

Thank you Richard for your kind words and wonderful review.
Your family was wonderful and we would love having you return in 2017
We strive at the Nichol Lodge to make sure our clients have a memorable and relaxed vacation. see you all next year......
Pool was great. The Lodge needs some updating.
The house had some great features including a well maintained pool. Unfortunately the house itself could use some updating. It rained heavily one day and the roof leaked. Several of the bathrooms held water in the tub while we showered and the faucet was broke in one bathroom. One of the burners in the kitchen did not work along with the garbage disposal. The house was clean but cluttered. We loved the on-site manager. She was up early every morning cleaning the pool and assisted us whenever we had questions or concerns.
I would recommend the property to friends but let them know that it could use some updating.
We did enjoy boating, jet skiing and days by the pool during our visit. We visited Patti's 1880's Settlement on Land Between the Lakes and enjoyed an early dinner. They were able to seat our large party easily and we loved the flower pot bread.
We have enjoyed several trips to Lake Barkley as a family and will return again in the future. We will definitely consider Nichol Lodge as an option for our large party but recommend a little maintenance on the property.
We are located on the main channel of Lake Barkely approx. 3 miles north of highway U.S. 68 bridge.
Other Activities: Land Between the Lakes Recreational Area. there is horse back riding, bison trail, lake barkley beach
