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. Now with the 2014 summer behind us, friends and family are now looking towards next year. So this is a great time of the year to find that perfect retreat. But don't wait to long. The best times generally get taken early for lake front homes. Should you have any questions, don't hesitate to call or e-mail us. We always respond to your inquiry within 12-hours or less and we love to interact with our future guests to be sure that Look-Out Lodge will accommodate your needs. In 2014 we added new deck furniture and outdoor dining table and chairs to enjoy the many views over the lake and bluffs.
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 returning 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 these rates. Please note that we have a limit of 12-guests in total. This includes ALL 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 are also 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.
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.
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.

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, we 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 your voice messages or work e-mails as you just take it all in. Check out more photos on our personal website at www.LakeCumberlandLogHome.com.
