About The Owner

I am retired from the landscaping business and have grown up visiting Rough River and fishing in the Peter Cave area. One of my pleasures in life is to renovate and restore homes. I recently renovated this beautiful lakehouse. I live in the same neighborhood and can tell you it is very conveniently located to M and D Marina for boat launching and rentals.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

Why The Owner chose Leitchfield

I have grown up visiting this area for fishing and boating. My family would come here for weekend gatherings. It is very easy to get to. I am from Vine Grove KY and can access it from 65 South to the Western KY Parkway to Leitchfield exit. Then it's only 7 miles from all shopping and restaurants.

What makes this house unique

Dock for boat and swimming. Front porch swing overlooking the ground fire pit area. Wraparound deck overlooking the expansive view of the lake and marina. Fireplace in great room with large sectional sofa, provides seating for the group. Kids gameroom loft area.

Wonderful Family house

  • 5 of 5

Our family had a wonderful stay... we packed so much stuff & did not need most of it. The house was very well stocked and had plenty of space for both houses of families to come eat- drink and be merry!!!

We will be back next year for our annual family vacation.

Another great stay!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth year staying here for three nights. We had six adults and three children, aged 7, 9, and 10. The owners are extremely helpful and kind, and the house is exceptionally well-maintained and equipped. What's not to love?
