Fantastic time!

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time visiting Lake Cumberland and staying at your house! The house had every thing you could need. The beds were comfy and the view was gorgeous! The Conley Bottom marina wasn't that far away, and we were able to rent a pontoon boat there. It was cold and cloudy, but we roughed it out and actually caught some fish! There was a grocery store close by ( Kroger ), which was very convenient. The only drawback was the shower ,which was very slippery, and some of the floors were uneven and slippery. We had to be very careful or we would slip or trip on the floors/stairs. Other than that, we had a great time! Thanks for sharing your house! We will probably be back again!

Great stay in more ways than one

  • 4 of 5

My family likes to take a trip to Lake Cumberland about once a year. We were looking for a place that was close to a boat ramp and was big enough for 8 people and this place fit the bill perfectly. The kitchen was spacious for food prep and there was plenty of room to sit and eat for everyone. The added bonus of the view of the lake was also a treat. We had a number of houseboats park in the cove so that was cool to see. Some of the things in the house are a little dated, but everything is provided for what you need out of a weekend getaway. We attempted to find a path down to the shore, but it was too steep or we just weren't going the right way. We did have an issue with a leak in the kitchen coming down through the upstairs shower, but Cecil came by and fixed it while we were out on the lake. We didn't have any problems after that, but were surprised nobody else caught it earlier. We would definitely stay here again though and recommend to others. Shirley and Cecil made it really easy for us!
