Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Nolin Lake - Santee Shores

5 Yr Old, 4 BDR, 2 BA Lakefront Home Near Wax Marina & Mammoth Cave Nat'l Park.

Spacious, privately owned, lake home sitting on 3 wooded lots in a private lakefront community on Nolin Lake.

This clean & comfortable home offers an open floor plan living room, dining and kitchen areas for group entertaining. Living Room has large screen tv and DVD player. Cable and Wifi provided.

The four large bedrooms have queen beds and can sleep 12 (8 privately). The two full bathrooms are both equipped with shower and tub. The 4th bedroom is a large suite located away from the other bedrooms in the main house. This room has two queen beds with additional room for an air mattress if needed. Some of our guests with children and sharing the house with a large group prefer the additional privacy of this room.

Modern, fully equipped kitchen contains everything needed for your cooking and dining pleasure: glass-top range, built-in microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. Small appliances include: coffee maker, griddle, mixer, blender, crockpots as well as ample cooking/bakeware and table service. The dining area will accommodate 6 at table, 3 at breakfast bar, and room for 4 more at the game table. The outdoor deck is equipped with gas grill and table for 6.

Relax on the covered front porch or swing in the shade provided by the overhead tree canopy. The large side yard provides space for wiffle ball, volleyball, or softball games. Enjoy the lake views from the outdoor deck or nature watch in the wooded area behind the house. In the evening, gather around the fire ring and roast hot dogs and marshmallows.

Enjoy all the water activities a lake has to offer:

For smaller children, swimming is available at two nearby state park locations that have nice beach areas in protected coves. Boat rental is available at Wax Marina during summer boating season. Paddle around the lake in the 2 owner-provided kayaks. Fishing is available from several shoreline locations on site, near the marina shelter area or at nearby state park.

The numerous tourist attractions listed below are located approximately 30 minutes drive. Mammoth Cave National Park north entrance is only 21 miles away with a bonus wow factor of getting to ride the Green River Ferry (free!!!) to reach the visitor center.

Whether your family desires a summer vacation of fun in the sun - swimming, boating and sunning or you wish to visit the many tourist attractions this area has to offer, our Santee Shores home can offer you comfort and quality at an affordable price.

Felt Like Home

  • 5 out of 5
This home was even lovelier than the pictures. My husband, daughter, son-in-law and granddaughter had a wonderful stay. The house is large enough that we did not feel cramped or crowded. After visiting Mammoth Caves it was so nice to come "home" to such a beautiful place. The house is very welcoming and cheerful. Best of all, it is spotless and equiped with everything you could possibly need-including a washer and dryer. The beds and all the furnishings were very comfortable. The screened in deck was perfect for relaxing, napping, and viewing the lake and trees-a real treat. I loved having my morning coffee there. If I owned a lake home, this is what I would want it to look and feel like. We plan on returning for another stay next fall!

Problem... need at least one more star, maybe two. Cathy and neighbors were terrific. The lake house was impeccable. Was as though they left for the weekend and let us use their home.

Relaxing Stay in Perfect Mammoth Caves Location

  • 5 out of 5
This lovely home is even better than represented in the listing! It has every small appliance one could wish and even fresh condiments and supplies in the refrigerator. The layout of the home's bedrooms gives every age group privacy when they want it, but the communal living spaces are wonderful for gathering together...especially the large screened-in porch with the fantastic curved red couches for sitting in a circle and visiting.
We enjoyed the swimming beach located about 3 miles from the home after we came back from Mammoth Caves, and we also had a great time zip-lining and horse back riding. Also loved the little Green River 2 car ferry on the way to Mammoth.
The owners have put together a comprehensive binder of things to do in the area and provide excellent directions to the property from different locations. The property managers live right next door and were so kind and helpful in seeing that we were comfortable and had every thing we could possibly want. We would stay here again in a heart beat.

Even better than the pictures!

  • 5 out of 5
We just got back from a long holiday weekend here with our family of 7. Everyone absolutely loved the house. It is very spacious and comfortable. The pictures just do not do it justice. The yard is quite large, plenty of room to run. The back deck was recently replaced with a larger, screened in, deck - this was everyone's favorite place to be! The home is extremely well furnished and also very clean. Cathy has definitely thought of everything. If you forget something, don't worry, it is probably already there. There is a great selection of board games, which we also enjoyed, we even found one we had never heard of that we plan to buy if we can find it! (The Game of Things) Although we had damp, chilly weather most of the weekend, a few of us got an opportunity to hit the lake for a short time in the kayaks and were thrilled to have that opportunity! We spent a day at Mammoth Cave Park (about a 30 min. scenic drive) and went on 2 tours - book these online WAY in advance btw, because the good ones sell out EARLY! We have rented a lot of places through Home Away and VRBO and this place definitely tops the list! We are hoping to go back for a summer trip to enjoy more of the lake activities. -Thank you for your hospitality Cathy

Perfect vacation mix of relaxation and activity!

  • 5 out of 5
Traveling with spouse, married daughter and my mother certainly added some considerations in scheduling this vacation. The location of this beautiful home fit perfectly into our plans. It allowed easy access to friends in Louisville, Park City and Glasgow. Multiple road choices were available for viewing the Fall colors on our Harleys. Mammoth Cave, Horse Cave and the Corvette Museum were all within easy driving distance for our group. Next door neighbors/property managers were helpful and very friendly. Will definitely consider staying here again!

Very Family Friendly

  • 5 out of 5
Owner is great to work with; Property Managers (the Neighbors) couldn't be more friendly & helpful also. This was the "perfect" place for our family vacation (10 of us in all). The home is situated in a very nice neighborhood and we found it to be very roomy, clean, stocked with everything we needed so that we could have most of our meals in. Large yard also allowed our younger ones to be able to play outside quite a bit. The owner had 2 kayak's available ... which was a real treat. We had been wanting to try kayaking and were able to do so. Marina is very close. Enjoy your drive to this area .... it's beautiful country .... the locals are very friendly and helpful. We had such a positive experience. This was the first home we have rented a home and without hesitation ....would absolutely do it again!
