|Minimum Stay||6 nights|
Whether you are looking for a place to relax and unwind while watching the nature and activity on Lake Barkley or if you want to be in the middle of the action out on the lake, Palisades Pointe can meet your needs.
Be among the first to experience this newly constructed 5200-square-foot waterfront property, which is being designed to work equally well for family gatherings, fishermen's escape, or for small executive retreats. This property is being offered at a focus group rate for the rest of 2015, as we complete small projects needed to finalize the house decor and wait out the summer to finish the landscaping. Those who provide constructive feedback regarding their stay and accommodations will be able to receive a significant discount during their stay and have the option to book in 2016 at reduced rates.
Decorated with simple elegance, yet convenience, Palisades Pointe sits high on the bluff that provides its name, while offering year-round, deep-water access from the private dock, which includes a covered slip, two pull-up slips and easy swimming access from the dock. With two observation decks plus a 360-degree cupola accessed by a stunning, wide spiral staircase that serves as the centerpiece of the home, the birds and animals often are at eye-level and the breathtaking sunsets are unrivaled on the lake. It is quite common to share the view with deer, groundhogs and other lake neighbors on a daily basis. In early 2015, eagle sightings were noted multiple times a week, flying near our upper deck and we've been enjoying the hummingbirds at eye-level all summer.
On the main level accessed by the front door off a grand porch is the master bedroom suite, featuring a king bed, a spa-like master bath and a small guest bedroom with a daybed that can pull out into a full-size. Another daybed that converts to a full is available just off the front foyer, across from the library, which is one of several gathering areas designed to encourage family game nights, quiet chats or an afternoon watching a sporting event on one of the several large flatscreen TVs strategically located on both levels.
On the lake side of the house, the main level features an open concept kitchen and eating area, with a large dining table that seats up to 12, plus seating for 5 at the nearby kitchen peninsula. This dining space opens onto a large upper columned porch, which provides beautiful views of the lake, year-round.
The lower level features a smaller kitchen, perfect for setting up barbecues or fish frys on the lower deck without having to travel to the upper level of the house. The lower deck offers a gas grill and access to the steps that lead to the dock. Most people in reasonable health report going down the stairs to the dock is relatively easy, but some may find it easier to use Eddy Creek Marina, which is less than 5 minutes away by car, rather than climb up the steps, which remain steep at the moment. We are working with the Army Corps of Engineers to ease the grade, but that will take some time. We strongly suggest using the marina if you have health conditions.
Also found on the lower lever in addition to the grilling kitchen, the game room and secondary gathering area are two queen bedrooms, a bunkroom that currently sleeps 6, an interior bedroom that offer a daybed that converts to a double bed. Two full baths also are on the lower level. There is additional room in the dorm for blow-up mattresses, if you need to sleep more.
We also have a Pack-N-Play that works nicely as a crib for the littlest ones, as well as a convertible high chair that attaches to a dining room chair.

Why We Choose Lake Barkley:
Large families with lots of teens and young adults like ours often have a hard time agreeing on a place where everyone can find something to do and relax. That’s not that case at Palisades Pointe! This is one of the only places in our families’ history that no matter what the age, the preferred activity level or how busy we may be during the week, everyone seems to prefer to be at the lake. It provides a perfect home base for all of the activities available within an hour drive or less – whether simply boating, fishing, swimming or kayaking off of the dock, spending a few hours hiking, horseback riding or watching buffalo or elk at Land Between the Lakes or taking one of the many short trips like antiquing in Cadiz, catching a show in Nashville, or splunking at Mammoth Cave, Palisades Pointe offers limitless possibilities. While we’d love to be here every week, until that is possible, we’re looking forward to sharing our passion for the house and the area with some new found friends who are willing help us make this the perfect retreat for those looking for a simple get-away.
Palisades Pointe is near the mouth of Eddy Bay, famous around the Twin Lakes for incredible fishing, particularly in the Spring and Fall. It is marked on all of the commercial fishing maps. The annual fishermen tell some amazing tales of catches just a few feet from our dock around a submerged road that was covered when the lakes were made. No need to even put a boat in the water if you don't want!
