About Joe & Marilyn Thornton

Joe ran a Auto Body Shop for several years, then worked on farm equipment & machinery for several years, is retired and keep our rentals looking good on outside. Marilyn worked for several years for KY Farm Bureau & then local Cable company for 22 years, now retired and enjoys keeping the rentals looking good and looking for something new to put in them or hang on wall.

We have 2 daughters and 3 grandsons, you will see their pictures if you visit either of the rentals. We are proud of our family.

Joe & Marilyn Thornton purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Joe & Marilyn Thornton chose New Concord

We were looking for a camper to be able to stay at the lake, our Grandson saw the cabin for sale on TV, he came over and couldn't wait until we went out to see it, we loved it and knew it was for us at first sight. This was our lake house, we never thought of renting it until we purchased the Cottage next door, when we started renting The Cottage we had an overflow so we decided to rent The Cabin. We have never been sorry, we have met the nicest folks and it brings in extra income since we are retired.

What makes this cabin unique

Very quiet, peaceful and so relaxing.

One of the best places we've ever stay!

  • 5 of 5

That is an amazing place! Beautiful wild nature around a cozy comfy cabin. We had a hard choice between "get out" and "stay in." Wery clean, convenient little house with a warm spirit! Marilyn is a very caring owner and a nice person. We have her quick responses as soon as we need anything. The lake near by is so nice to travel to. Also, there was a big fan to have a ride on a kart all around. We were lucky to have a great weather, too! Fishing, hiking, enjoying the silence and fresh air. Definitely recommended this place for everybody, who want to escape from everything! Want to come back some day.

Great Weekend at the Cabin

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay. Cute cabin, plenty of room. Kitchen and bath have been updated. The bedroom and living room are pretty dated, but very comfortable. Everything you need is in the cabin. Marilyn was very easy to work with and this place is a real bargain for the space. Very quiet and peaceful here. Nice grill and patio, we cooked out one evening.

It is just about 15-20 minutes to Murray and there are plenty of restaurants and grocery there.

We went to Land Between the Lakes and enjoyed it very much.
