Review Submitted June 26, 2010 Date of Stay May 2010

We meet our daughter and her family somewhere every Memeorial Day weekend (they live in Michigan & we live in Tennessee). Our ages ranged from 5 to 55 years old (including my 14 year old neice) and everyone had a wonderful time. My daughter & neice loved sunbathing on the dock and everyone enjoyed fishing and swimming from the dock. This was the first time that I did all of the cooking indoors because everything that I needed was there. The basement is unfinished but it was a big hit with the younger group. They enjoyed having their own space including a fridge for their drinks & snacks. There is a marina very close by where we rented a pontoon boat to see more of the lake and that was a big hit with everyone. The walk to the lake was a little steep for 2 of us but there were two benches along the way with a beautiful view to rest and enjoy the garden. Everyone else was up and down the path with no stopping. The deck was very relaxing and the house was quite comfortable and cozy. The owner was very helpful and available before and during our stay. Someone suggested that we stay here again in the future and everyone agreed.

Terrific for a family vaction.

  • 5 of 5
Jennifer was very good about answering questions we had before we arrived, so our arrival was uneventful, except we passed the house. The house sits below street level, so we did not see the driveway at first. It is a semi-circular drive that can fit five vehicles.

The house is very nice, with a huge kitchen table that we were all able to sit around at meal time. There was plenty of counter space and fully stocked with dishes and cooking utensils. The full kitchen downstairs came in handy when we fixed breakfast; bacon and eggs upstairs and pancakes downstairs. The living room is also spacious, the grandkids really enjoyed the chess board table. The bedrooms were as nice as advertised, and while the televisions were nice, we kept ourselves busy enough that we didn’t really use them. We were concerned about there being only two bathrooms, but it did not present a problem.

The deck was very nice, with a great view. It was unusually cool when we were there, so we made good use of the fire pit, building a fire and sitting around it while enjoying s’mores.

The hill to the fire pit and the steps is very steep and you need to be careful walking up and down. The new steps have been extended to the dock, making it easy to reach. It helps to zig-zag up and down the hill.

We rented a pontoon boat from Chimney Rock and spent the day swimming from it in the lake. There was very little boat traffic lake and much of the lake is a no wake zone, so we felt very safe having the kids in the water. We went to Old Fort Harrod another day. The volunteers were very informative about what frontier life was like in Kentucky during the early days of our country. We didn’t have time to visit Shaker Village, but took the riverboat ride, which was very interesting

Overall, it was a very nice family vacation that ended all too soon.

Relaxing and Amazing Vacation Rental!!

  • 5 of 5
From the very beginning, the communication was terrific. Jennifer is one class act and was very responsive to all my crazy questions. It really makes the planning process a lot more easier when you have someone like Jennifer providing you the information. She explained everything I asked in detail and I did not have any "surprises" once I got to the vacation home.

When looking for rentals, I do like to read the reviews, as it provides additional information to me about a property.

When we got there, there was a mildly steep hill to the U-shaped driveway. I must agree with others, that the pictures don't do this home justice. Once we opened the door, "Wow" . Place is very spacious. Wonderfully big kitchen and fully stocked. The place was VERY clean and welcoming.

The deck with the lighted roping was awesome. Very enjoyable and outstanding view. We did not utilize the fire pit, but it looked great.

At first, the hill down to the dock seemed daunting to us. However, once you realize that it's a home on a lake, pretty much they are all elevated above the dock/water. You will want to wear shoes when walking to the dock. When coming up, you will want to zig-zag, as it is a lot easier to come up the hill.

The dock was big and accomodating. There is no shade down there, however, so we brought a shade canopy and it worked perfectly. Lake is amazingly clean and wonderful for swimming. The men were not too successful with fishing until the last day. My 5 year old caught lots of small fish everyday , which made him very happy. Hint: You will want to use worms and drop your line straight down from the dock, then bring up slowly. That's when they started catching them.

Another huge plus was we were able to bring our 2 German Shorthaired pointers dogs, who are part of our family.


All and all, it was an outstanding vacation and just a great experience. Normally, we try to go somewhere different every year. That being said, I would return to this place in a heartbeat.

Thank you Jennifer!!!

All my family members were impressed with this house. So clean & comfortable rooms. The lake view is amazing. We enjoyed our short time there. We would definitely go back to this place but for more time.

Perfect Group-Gathering Lake Home

  • 5 of 5
This is the perfect place for a large group! The home is VERY spacious and clean, and everything we needed was in the house. The satellite and wi-fi made the kids happy. The double kitchen made cooking for a large group a breeze, but try The Village Inn(5 minutes away)if you don't feel like cooking. A marina is 1/4 mile away, and the house is centrally located on the lake, which was important to our group of fisherman. The neighbors were friendly. The owner(s) of the property answered my e-mail/texts/calls immediately and is what made this property rental such an enjoyable process. I recommend this home and will visit again.

So Relaxing

  • 5 of 5
Such a pretty location, in a country setting,and a beautiful view of the lake. It made for great mornings, sitting on the back porch, watching the sun come up, drinking a cup of coffee. The house is great, with everything you'd possibly need. Great place to stay if you're looking for a central location while touring the distilleries, and many other attractions.

Great home for large group

  • 5 of 5
We were a large group (15 people) consisting of three families with many kids meeting from OH and TX. The house accommodated a large group very well. With two living areas and a very spacious kitchen, there was plenty of room for gathering. We especially appreciated the extra long kitchen table! The views from the deck were beautiful, and we had two fun nights around the campfire watching the moonlight shimmer on the lake. Jennifer was very helpful during the whole process- returning emails promptly, helping with directions, and returning our deposit in a timely manner. We had a nice time and appreciated the hospitality!!
