Overview

About the property

Log & Stone Lodge, 5 Bedrooms, 4.5 Baths, (Sleeps up to 12 guests)

As the owners of Look-Out Lodge (LOL) we take personal pride in making sure that each guest has a memorable and relaxing stay. And from the reviews & comments from our recent guests, we hope to show how sincere we are about the quality of our property being offered. Although most of our summer dates have been taken, there is still available dates open for early autumn for the fall foliage season.

Look-Out Lodge is a true lake front and lake view property. Unlike many other rental properties that boast "lake front and water views" that are seasonal (winter time) or have obstructed views, that is not the case here at LOL. We have 365 days of unobstructed views of Lake Cumberland (not Cumberland River) from any of the four floors on our property. There is nothing blocking the view of the lake and the surround bluffs from anywhere on our property. You have a complete "birds eye view" since you are above the tree line rather then in them. The views are breathtaking, as noted by our past guests.

And for our returning house guests you will see some noticeable additions that we have made in 2016 & 2017 to make LOL a more relaxing and entertaining stay for you and your guests. With fast high speed WIFI to 10 flat screen televisions located all around the lodge, you will find that LOL has plenty of entertainment to offer. Although we must limit our house guests to 12 persons in total, we now have outdoor dining seating on the third floor balcony that can easily accommodate more then our limit. We always invite our guests to tell us what they would like to see at LOL for future stays in their reviews. And for the most part, we add them. Hair dryers for all the bathrooms, Keurig coffee makers for both kitchen and things of that nature.

Look-Out Lodge is a four story custom built log and stone home which has a total of 5,275 sq. ft. of indoor living space and over 2,800 sq. ft. of wrap around porches on both the 2nd and 3rd floor. There is an additional court yard on the 1st level facing the lake with another private tiled patio with outdoor dining table and four dining room swivel chairs with accessed either through the recreation room or by the outdoor stair case. We would also include pictures of the vast balconies, but VRBO limits the number of pictures that we can post. We will respond to each e-mail inquiry within 12 hours or less, but you can always call us directly anytime to discuss your group's needs. As owners, we are very actively involved in the management of Look-Out Lodge and we love to interact with potential guests and answer any questions you may have. We want to be sure that Look-Out Lodge is both a good fit for our guests as well as for us the owners. Our goal is to make your trip to LOL as memorable as possible before, during and even after your stay. We will always communicate with our expected guests on every level of your trip. We want you to be confident about your planned stay with us at all times.

LOL is fully equipped with more than the average rental property because it is also our vacation home. We have decorated each of the many rooms individually with fine detail and furnishings to give a unique perspective to this log home. Each individual bedroom is specifically furnished and decorated based on a particular theme and each has it's own engraved suite name above the entrances to give it that "personal touch" This also allows guests to pick their own bedrooms in advance of arriving to avoid who's sleeping where. Each year there are new features added to the lodge that repeat house guests will and have noticed. And the views of the lake and the surrounding vistas from the lodge will keep you out on the decks more than inside. You can see for miles all around and from a birds eye perspective. And don't worry if the weather gets bad. All of the balconies are fully covered so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the views no matter what the weather brings. With 360 degrees of porch and decking, you have unlimited views. If the weather gets bad to east then move to the west side. There is casual seating all along the main 3rd floor deck as well as a 4 person bar height table with swivel chairs for guests to enjoy. There are two outdoor dining tables with swivel chairs that will accommodate 14 diners. We also provide cushioned swivel rockers; wooden rocking chairs and two double seated gliders which face the front yard to welcome your fellow guests as they arrive. These were all hand crafted by the local Amish community. There is also a double person hammock on a Viking stand on the main deck that has been a real hit with our guests. Whether your dining out, having drinks or just relaxing the outdoor balconies are perfect any time of the day or night. Especially to enjoy the wild life or just to watch the boat traffic go by. There are a variety colorful native birds in our community that we are more then happy to feed so they'll stick around.

Look-Out Lodge has a total of 5 bedrooms; 4 1/2 bathrooms; 2 kitchens; great room and dining room on the main floor (3rd floor); a second living room & dining room on the 2nd floor as well as the recreation and game room on the 1st floor. For reservations for 8 persons or less we have the ability to rent down to 3 or 4 bedrooms without the additional living space or recreation room. Be sure to call or e-mail us about these reduced rates, as they are not published.

The recreation and game room is very well appointed for family fun. This is a 750 square foot room with 12 foot tall ceiling which is accented with 12 inch crown molding throughout along with two large picture windows which face Lake Cumberland. The game room is equipped with a standard 4X8 pool table; professional ping pong table; 7 foot air hockey table; professional darts; foosball and lounge area with a leather pit group; coffee table with a new 55 inch flat screen 4K HDTV WIFI 'Smart' TV with a sound bar with DirecTV provided. This recreation room leads to the out-door patio area which has another 4 person outdoor dining table and swivel chairs which also faces the lake. Sorry, but no outdoor hot tub. Note: The recreation room is only available to a full house rental.

Most of our returning guests have really enjoyed the upgrades and the additions we have made in 2016 and 2017. But if you don't need all 5,000 + square feet of indoor space, we have the ability to rent down to 3 or 4 bedrooms at a reduced rate. However, this does not include the recreation and game room at those rates. Just e-mail or call us for these rates. Please note that we have a LIMIT OF 12 GUESTS IN TOTAL....... This includes ALL children.

Look Out Lodge was constructed in January of 2007 by the current owners, which is a full log home with stone accents on the exterior. The lodge has a 27 foot tall stone two sided wood burning fireplace in the Great Room and 28 foot floor to ceiling glass windows facing the lake. The open floor plan of the Great Room into the dining and kitchen area are perfect for families getting together. The property is located in a private gated and secured community with paved streets though out along with all underground utilities. This community also has security surveillance cameras to insure safety during your stay, giving you that peace of mind. The community is surrounded by woods on one side and Lake Cumberland on the other. Look Out Lodge sits high on a bluff in the back end of a cul-de-sac which overlooks Lake Cumberland on the Wolf Creek section adjacent to where the original Alligator I Marina was located and across from Jabez Beach. There is no lake access from LOL, unless you are an experienced hiker or climber. We are the only home on this cul-de-sac which gives you complete privacy and seclusion, not to mention unlimited parking. The lodge also has a circular tiled drive-way and paver designed entrance, giving you a truly beautiful curb side appeal as you or your guests arrive. LOL is fully landscaped with five separate retaining walls to the west and one major retaining wall to the south, each with it's own landscaping character of colorful flowers, roses, shrubs and evergreens that is managed by a local professional landscaper. We promise..... You will not be disappointed as you and your guests arrive.

We invite you to see what other guests have said about LOL from other sites by simply doing a search for our name "Look Out Lodge on Lake Cumberland". We are also featured in the Lake Cumberland / Russell County Tourism Guide for 2016 edition as well as the Kentucky Tourism Guide. Please remember that we have a LIMIT OF 12 GUESTS IN TOTAL, including all children. So pack your bags and be sure to bring your food and drinks with you. Because we supply just about everything else you'll need during your stay. We look forward to seeing you in the near future and safe travels, where ever you may go.

It's the perfect place for the kids to ride their bikes without the parents having to constantly supervise them. Since there is little, if no traffic within the community and the speed limit is 15 MPH there is little to worry about as they discover nature and the beauty of this community. And it's just perfect for that walk with the family before or after a meal.
