LOOK-OUT LODGE ON LAKE CUMBERLAND.

Photos and Description of this 5 bedroom holiday lodge in Kentucky - LOOK-OUT LODGE

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

As the owners of Look Out Lodge we take personal pride in making sure each guest has a memorable stay. And our reviews from past guests surely indicate that we are meeting and hopefully, exceeding their expectations. With summer months upon us, there are only a few dates open for 2014. Be sure to book early for next year for the dates that you're looking for. Call or e-mail us with your questions and about availability. The best dates get booked months in advance, so plan ahead if you can. We always respond to your inquiry within 12-hours or less.

Our upgraded landscaping is now in full bloom and our recent guests have complemented the new look. We have added new deck furniture and outdoor dining table and chairs to enjoy the many views at LOL. This property has 5 bedroom; 4 1/2 bathrooms; 2 kitchens; great room and dining room on the main floor; a second living room & dining room on the second floor as well as the recreation and game room. 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. If you have any questions regarding rates, don't hesitate to call or e-mail us.

Lake Cumberland is now at the peak water elevation of 720 feet and is expected to stay there according to the Corp or Army Engineers. So the unobstructed views of the lake from Look-Out Lodge are absolutely stupendous.

In 2013 we re-decorated the first floor game and recreation room and up-dated the flooring with full 18 x 18 tile and accent area rugs. The circular drive way has also been tiled to give it a great formal curb appeal. Most of our return guests have really enjoyed the upgrades and the additions. But if you don't need all 5,000 plus square feet of space, we have the ability to rent down to 3 or 4 bedrooms at a reduced rate. However, this does not include the game and recreation room at those rates. Just e-mail or calls for rates. Please note that we have a limit of 12-guests in total. This includes children.

This is a four story 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 bottom level facing the lake with another private tiled patio with outdoor dining table and four swivel chairs with accessed through the recreation room or by outdoor stairs. The lake views from this patio is breath taking.

The lodge is fully equipped with more than the average rental property because it is also the owners second home. The owners have decorated each of the many rooms individually with fine detail to give a unique perspective to this log home. The views of the lake and the surrounding vistas will keep you outside more than inside. Not seen at any other rental cabins, this property has outdoor dining tables and chairs on each of the wrap around porches. There is additional casual seating all around the two decks consisting of rocking chairs and two double seated gliders located on the front porch as your guests arrive. There is also a new double person hammock on a Viking stand that has been a real hit with our guests.

We invite you to see the lodge now by logging on to Look Out Lodge on Lake Cumberland website and see this for yourself at www.LakeCumberlandloghome.com for more information and pictures. It truly is a piece of heaven. Remember that we can taylor your budget needs depending on the number of guests in your party, with a LIMIT OF 12 GUESTS IN TOTAL.

The recreation and game room is very well appointed. This is a 750 square foot room with 12 foot ceiling accented with crown molding throughout and picture windows facing Lake Cumberland. The game room is equipped with a pool table; professional ping pong; 7 foot air hockey table; professional darts; foosball and lounge area with pit group; coffee table with a 42 inch wall mounted LED flat screen 'Smart' TV (WIFI included). Note: The recreation room is only available to a full house rental.

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 and a 27 foot tall stone wood burning fireplace in the Great Room. This property is located in a private gated community with paved streets and underground utilities 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. This is 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 drive down and circular tiled drive-way and paver designed entrance, giving you a truly beautiful curb side appeal as you or your guests arrive. I promise, you will not be disappointed as you arrive.

About Monica Wells

We actually live in South Florida, but fell in love with Lake Cumberland, which is why we decided to build this lodge. We just love the changing of the seasons and we come up any time we get a chance. In the morning, just sitting on the deck having coffee and watch the morning fog roll in makes all worth while. Although we do love our winters in south Florida, I still have not gotten use to the cold winters in Kentucky.

Monica Wells purchased this lodge in 2007

Why Monica Wells chose Kentucky

We built this custom lodge because of the spectacular unobstructed views of the lake and the security and seclusion in this private gated community. Plus this has one, if not the best, lake views of all the homes lots in this community. No need to crane your head to see the lake through the forest. It's right there in front of you. Pictures do not do it justice.

What makes this lodge unique

Relaxing, walking, biking and just taking it all in. You have a tendency to forget to check the office e-mails or voice messages as you just take it all in. Check out more photos on our personal website. Lakecumberlandloghome.

Just completed sixth annual Labor Day weekend visit. Home is immaculate and comfortable in every way. Easily accommodates our group of five adults and six children (ages 7 to 15). Game room is a big hit with the kids. Multiple deck seating areas are perfect for socializing and enjoying the beautiful views of the lake. Owners and Property Manager are top notch. This trip, Property Manager even spent a full Labor Day weekend day making an emergency repair on one of our vehicles. Grand kids start asking when we're going to Lookout Lodge as soon as they get out of school each year. A family tradition no one wants to give up!

Owner's Response: We are so pleased that your family comes each year for Labor Day to spend quality time with one another and can appreciate what we have accomplished with LOL. We have already booked you again for next Labor Day weekend, so no need to worry about your spot. Be sure to look for new additions in 2015 as we continue to enhance the property with more additions. Enjoy the rest of the year and we look forward to seeing you again in 2015.

Just as wonderful as before

  • 5 out of 5
This was our second visit to Look-Out Lodge and since I felt like our first visit was perfect, it would be difficult to improve that standard. The fact that the lake once again had water just added to our enjoyment. The solitude, the wonderful comfortable home, and the view truly make this a place that "restores my soul". Our daughter and son-in-law accompanied us on this trip and found the property as relaxing as we did. Monica is just fantastic as a host, always wanting things to be perfect for her guests and she goes above and beyond to make that happen.

Careful you will never want to leave!!!

  • 5 out of 5
My parents brought my husband and I to the lodge for a long weekend getaway. The home is comfortable, spacious and welcoming. The kitchen is well equipped for cooking some great meals and the decks are the prefect place to enjoy those meals. The views and location will make you turn off the phones and enjoy the setting and each other. Only word of caution... You will NOT want to leave. The homeowners are fantastic and want to make your stay awesome.

Serenity, Tranquility and Absolute Beauty!!!

  • 5 out of 5
AWESOME!!!...that is what my 3 year old grandson yelled out when we opened the BIG door on the BEAUTIFUL Lodge. It's unexplainable what you see when you arrive. So much beauty and peace; truly a piece of heaven! There are not enough adjectives to describe it. It takes a lot of caring people to pull it off...and they have done it here. We all enjoyed comfy beds, fluffy towels, a fun-filled game room, very inviting outdoor furniture, entertaining birds, the most exquisite scenery and the beautiful Red, White and Blue waving so proudly on the front porch. From the very hospitable owners and property manager to the "cleanliest of clean" housekeeper... they left nothing undone. Thank you Andy and Monica for sharing your "Lookout Lodge" with our family, providing us with cherished and lasting memories.

Making Memories

  • 5 out of 5
This property is a great place for a family reunion. Our family stayed here for our annual reunion in July. We meet at Lake Cumberland every summer, renting different homes. This, by far, is the nicest home we have ever stayed in. The home is fully stocked with all we needed. It is very clean and well maintained. The owner went above and beyond my expectations answering questions and providing helpful information. My entire family highly recommends this house for a fun and relaxing get away. We will be returning next July!

Beautiful!

  • 5 out of 5
If you are looking for a place to rest and relax while enjoying God's beautiful creations - this is it.
If you are looking for water fun boating, fishing, swimming - it doesn't get any better.
If you like all the amenities of modern day living while in beautiful surroundings - get lost in the fun inside this mansion log home.
But if you want the feeling that you are alone in nature in rustic surroundings just step outside, and feel the breeze, and breath the fresh air while peering past a soaring eagle over the trees at a massive body of water. - You found your home!

This property is located within a gated community with paved roads and underground utilities and 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 the nature and beauty of this community. And it's just perfect for that walk with the family before or after a meal.
