Property type cabin


About the property

Cabin, 1 King Rm, 1 Queen Rm, 1 Rm with 7 Twin Beds, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 11-12)

This property is a nature lover's dream. You can walk down one of the trails and see different wildlife. It is a quiet and serene place to stay. If you love wood, you will truly enjoy being at the cabin as it is built out of Western Kentucky woods including poplar, red oak, white oak, walnut, cherry, sassafras, and coffee tree. If you are a hunter, you might come during one of the hunting seasons and hunt deer or turkey.

If you are a quilter, you might want to come during the international quilt show held in nearby Paducah. The cabin is also a great business meeting place, as it is equipped with technology for small meeting groups. Kentucky and Barkley Lakes are located within 25 miles of the cabin.

We have a loft with 7 twin beds, a bedroom with one queen bed, and another bedroom with one king bed. Screened-in porches with wooden rockers and two porch swings complement the overall nature experience.

Why Leslie Goodman chose Symsonia

We originally built this cabin for hunting purposes.

What makes this cabin unique

Staying at our cabin is like walking back in time because of the surroundings and the atmosphere inside the cabin; yet, you have all of the conveniences of home. The time you spend here will be quality time with your family and nature.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This lodge is wonderful. All the amenities of home and then some. Better than a time share, per all of the spices, cooking and sauteing oil, flour and sugar. After riding all day on these twisty and hilly roads it was nice to come come back to the cabin for the weekend. Play Rummikub and 31 with old sisters and brothers and newer sister and brothers. I'm leaving the Rummikub for your enjoyment; it is addicting just a warning.

May God continue to bless all of us.

Thank you very much for letting us rent your wonderful lodge for the Memorial Day Weekend of 2015.

Perfect for a multi-family trip

  • 5 of 5

The lodge was a perfect fit for our (almost) annual girls' (+ kids) trip! Plenty of space for the children to play -- especially on the screened-in, wrap-around porch -- and a fantastic kitchen space for cooking, eating and chatting for the adults. The lodge was clean, comfortable, well-stocked and easily able to accommodate 2-3 families. We're looking forward to meeting up there again for next year's trip!

The lodge was set off the road in a lovely wooded area with a stream running alongside.

The Goodmans were easy to work with and accommodating. Their lodge was very clean and well kept. We enjoyed the screened in porch for the kids to play in since it rained during our stay and the ground was quite soggy. There were plenty of towels, comfortable beds, lots of room to sit and visit and to eat, and lovely views. We have plans to make a trip there again!

So Glad I Checked VRBO Before I Booked a Hotel

  • 5 of 5

Can't express to you how glad I am to have checked VRBO for other lodging options for our ball tournament in Benton, KY. We've been wanting to plan a weekend getaway for each of our families for years and just haven't had the right time where we're all free... but everything just fell into place for this weekend and it was absolutely perfect!!

We couldn't have asked for a better place for the kids to get outdoors or for us to sit back, relax and just enjoy the comfort and beauty offered at the CliAl Lodge. We lover every moment here and almost hat to pack up and return home.

Thanks for the awesome weekend. We'd love to plan a return trip!

You exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

Dear Goodman Family,

Thank you for building a quality cabin and allowing us to rent it. Our travel plans included our 5 children, 3 of which our triplets...

The cabin provided us the ability to accomadate 7 people, eat/cook her for breakfast and dinner each day, go home with no laundry (or much less) and a full fridge. Plenty of space to spread out and relax every evening. The beds were so comfortable. Special props to the Goodman Ladies on decor, designs in the kitchen and props to the builders, everything is of the utmost quality and shows the standards set by generations before you. Water softener= great addition :) The screened in porches were wonderful to sit on the swings in the rocking chairs and run on each morning and evening.

We look forward to telling our other families with multiples about your cabin.

On our vacation your cabin gave us shelter, comfort, relaxation while we traveled to 4 states in 5 short days.

May your family continue to be blessed by all of the renters, hunters, fisherman, families,who choose to make this VRBO their home for a day, week or month.

Continue what generations before you passed down, never forget your mission statement, goals and always remember family comes 1st. God Bless You Goodman Family and friends.

With Warm Regards,

Team Hancock

Christmas Stay

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying here, every year for the past 4 years! Its the most beautiful cabin we have had the fortune to stay in (and that includes all the cabins we've stayed at in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge) Can't wait to come back next year. The Goodman's are a pleasure to work with.
