Stayed 9/29/17 - 10/1/17

This home suited all of our needs wish we couldve stayed longer. Every room was spacious and had their own bathroom. Clean living space with a great view of Nolin Lake. Perfect from the deck with your morning coffee. No complaints definitely the place I will be staying at next time.

perfect house!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here over Easter weekend to visit Mammoth Cave and the Cave City attractions . Mammoth Cave was 40 minutes away and definitely worth the drive. We had 6 people in our family and the size of the house was amazing and very clean and was stocked with all the essentials. Every bedroom has their own bathroom which we all loved and was very convenient! The backyard was right on the lake so the view was awesome. My family enjoyed fishing and having bonfires at night. The neighborhood was very safe and cute, right in the country setting. There isn't many things close by, except a little store so make sure you bring everything with you that you might need. We loved being in the country where it was quiet because we come from a big city and it was definitely a nice change of pace. We had no complaints and we wish we didn't have to leave! John and Queedie were very accommodating and were wonderful people to rent from. I highly recommend this house to rent to make memories with your family and friends!

A beautiful woodsy serene place

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is cozy, rustic, & comfortable with a beautiful view of the lake. We cooked most of our meals there with adequate utensils. It was great to have a grill which we used several times. The beds were very comfortable. The fireplace was SO warm & cozy and there were books to read, games to play, TV for movies plus DVD’s. It was really quiet and peaceful except for one night the neighbors had a party but they wrapped it up by 11 pm on a weekend so fair game:). There were five of us & we would all stay there again. Our host was very responsive & helpful. We were fortunate to add several days onto our original reservation so we could enjoy the cabin longer. We found the location great for Mammoth Cave adventures, Bowling Green, & Kentucky Derby Racetrack. Some of the places were a bit of a drive but it was worth it. Having Wi-Fi was a must for us since some of us had projects for work and needed weather reports for general aviation needs. The cabin was adequately clean.

Clean cozy lake front house

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this lake front house. John is awesome, very accommodating. His property is clean and cozy. Although temperatures outside was in single digits in last week of December, we felt cozy and warm with nice fireplace.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed yourselves! The views of the lake are amazing! We did not know the chair was broke until the day of your arrival. We have since replaced. We will replace the leather couch next month. It looks way better than it is comfortable. We enjoy being a small but very important part of your getaway. John & Queedie
