About Kevin Welch

We use our home throughout the year so there are not many weeks available to rent. If you are interested in a Thanksgiving or Christmas stay you need to let us know early as we often enjoy the home during the holidays. Summer is great at the lake! Boating, cooking out, traveling to Nashville, and taking in the local flavor of the area occupies our time. There is also great golf all around the area.

Kevin Welch purchased this house in 2012

We enjoy traveling to Lake Barkley and staying in our home. The home is very comfortable and relaxing. The views are amazing and the easy walk down to the dock make boating fun and enjoyable.

Cooking out, fishing, water skiing, and fun in the sun make this a great place for our family. Our kids love it here!

Great central location for a 3 family reunion of 2 generations of adults.

  • 5 of 5

Well furnished and maintained house with great lake view that perfectly fit our need for a central location for a family reunion for 2 generations to gather for the Thanksgiving holiday.

Two floors provided ample space and privacy to accommodate 11 adults ranging in age from mid 20s to early 60s.

Kitchen was well equipped for our needs including putting together a Thanksgiving feast.

Large open spaces in the upstairs and downstairs provided great spots to gather and visit.

Well equipped deck areas were great spot to take in the lake view and catch up on our busy lives. Downstairs large screen TV and pool and foosball tables offered great location to take in the bowl games and entertain the group.

Private neighborhood setting made it easy for casual strolls in a low traffic area.

Owner was responsive and helpful setting up this rental.

We'd rent this one again.

Would not recommend this rental!

  • 2 of 5

The owner left out many important facts. To get to the house one had to travel almost 5 miles on desolate country back roads to get to a very isolated house with a 45+degree driveway(look in upper left corner of picture). Going down was a adventure and going up the driveway one felt like an astronaut before blast off. All one saw going up was the sky until you reached the road. If you wanted to see where you were going you needed to look out the side window.

One of the many things the owner leaves out in his description is that renters must supply toilet paper and remove their garbage. To take the garbage renters have to drive about 10 miles to county dump and pay a fee to leave their trash.

As to the 50 steps to the dock. Again, the owner doesn't tell the readers the whole story on how steep the grade or that the steps were not built to 2013 KY code. Unfortunately, the state of KY does not enforce the state code on residential rentals. The steps were built cheaply(screw the renter) of retaining wall blocks with short stair treads, broken blocks, less than 2 feet wide and no railings. The steps do not start at the patio but also most 15 feet down the slope. To get off the patio to start down to the steps is very dangerous for younger kids and older adults. No rails, deep step downs. Twice members tripped and fell going down. Some blocks are so narrow that one can not step down without turning their foot to fit on the stone.

As to house. It is impressive in pictures but not that great. We arrived to no dishwasher for 3 days and a disconnected garbage deposal meaning all leftovers had to be put into trash bags. He did send a repairman on the night of the 3rd day at 7pm arriving by taxi and worked until 11:30pm. When finished he wanted me to drive him home which was 20 miles away. I did take him to a location that he could be picked up easier. By accident I did meet previous renters and they had major problems with no air conditioning, etc. Problems were fixed.

The laundry room have a septic tank smell from day one and our master bathroom had the same smell off and on during the week. Garage was dirty!

The owner said to me when discussing the broken dishwasher I was paying "top dollar" and he would get if fixed. 3 days later it was.

For paying "Top Dollar" the week was very disappointing because the rental was far from "Top Dollar." We have had far better accommodations at Bald Head Island and DeBordieu.

Would not recommend this rental.

Owner's Response: We are deeply sorry that you felt your stay was not as advertised. All of the texts I received from you during your stay said things like "great home" and "enjoying our stay". Maybe you gave me a poor review because I was forced to take your security deposit for all of the damages you and your guests caused. I have never taken one dollar from any renter ever until now. I am left with having to leave a detailed response to your many comments. First, the list of damages, (keep in mind all of the furnishings in the home are less than 2 years old). You backed into our neighbors stone column of their driveway gate causing our neighbor to call the police on your poor attitude once your were confronted about the accident. The dishwasher was caused by you not emptying or cleaning out the small plastic strainer in the bottom of the dishwasher. I had it fixed the same night you called. I guess instead of dumping your food waste in the garbage you decided that the dishwasher doubled as a garbage disposal. We can't have a disposal due to the home having a septic tank system. The cost to me was almost two hundred bucks for your clog. You broke a leg off of the bunk beds.The kitchen table top was cracked and a piece was broken off. You stole several towels. A night stand was deeply gouged and scratched. You lost wedding rings and engagement rings down the toilet and according to my cleaning staff you left the home so dirty and disgusting that it was the worse they have seen. You also went to the home two days before your scheduled stay and bothered my other guests. (who does that)...You also had 18 guests which is much more than I allow probably causing issues with the septic system (which is brand new). And this is just what I know about. I confronted you on these things and you got mad at me? The other things you mentioned are all placed in my VRBO advertising. 50 steps to the dock no more no less, some homes have over 400 steps to their docks. The homes on the entire lake are all built around a reservoir in a "bowl" all have slopes to the lake. The home is in Kentucky, on a lake, so 5 miles on paved roads to any home on a lake is less than average. I did not cause any of the damage in the home YOU DID. So I took your very small security deposit to cover some of this and you give me a poor review. I don't know where DeBordieu is located but I have a feeling you are not welcomed back there either.

Beautiful and comfortable lake house!!

  • 5 of 5

The first thing I have to mention is the spectacular view of the lake. It was so peaceful there, a true getaway. The home is very accommodating and comfortable. We have two children age 2 and under, and the home had everything we needed, including a pack and play and highchair. So many activities for all ages - even a Foosball machine and pool table, not to mention the numerous televisions. The kitchen was well supplied, so we were able to easily prepare our meals. Would recommend this lake home to anyone!!

Best Vacation Ever!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely had the best vacation ever on beautiful Kentucky Lake, Eddyville. The house was immaculate, extremely well furnished with gorgeous modern decor, and stunning unobstructed lake views! The house is situated right on the lake shores with very easy access down to the private dock, and all the fun being on the lake offers. The kitchen is state of the art equipped with a complete array of cooking utensils and quality dinner wear. The spacious bedrooms were very comfortable offering privacy and luxury comfort, and all adjoining bathrooms were clean and modern. We also very much enjoyed the enormous games room with huge wall mounted flat screens, a pool table, and games galore for the kids. There are plenty of pretty tree lined, lake side lanes for quiet strolls and the house is only a short drive to Eddyville marina and restaurants. As an extra added bonus, there is a large waterpark with multiple pools and slides within a ten minute drive from the house also. We just loved our stay in this beautiful home, and can not wait to secure our next booking for more family fun!

Beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We planned a trip to Eddyville for Labor Day, and pulled up to a beautiful home! The inside decor was so perfect and relaxing for our family! The home was impeccable. The views of the lake from the living area, kitchen, and top deck were breathtaking. We also noticed after taking a cruise around the lake, just how lucky we were that we had much fewer steps to get to the water than most! This home sits a little lower and you'll appreciate that once you get down to the water. This is a great place for entertaining, several guests at one time. The fire pit was beautiful which we did use once! I would highly suggest staying here if you want a relaxing, well decorated, paradise! Kevin was great to work with and super helpful! Thanks for a great time!
