Pricing would be based on number of people and how many days where stayed. Lets wait and see what old man winter brings us. I'll wait to hear if it calls for snow. Thanks Gene and Jean 1 270 257 0584 I almost forgot that we have a perfect place to sleigh ride. Two nice slopes with a wall on one side and a grape arbor fence on the other side.

About Mr. Gene & Jean Ohlmann.

I grew up in Louisville,went to St.Denis,Valley,High School,University of Louisville for a short time after I got out of the United States Marine Corp. Bought a lot on Rough River in 1990,lived in camper and small cabin for a couple of years till I met Jean Marie. Jean loved the lake and after we married , we talked of moving to the lake. When JEAN retired a little while later we made the final decision and in 1999 we moved to the lake.

Mr. Gene & Jean Ohlmann. purchased this house in 1990

Why Mr. Gene & Jean Ohlmann. chose Rough River Lake

God Led Us To This Lake Front Property. It Was A Challenge To Turn It Into A Building Site And Home Sweet Home. The Property Is Also Close To Centerview Community Church, 2 Miles From Our Home.

What makes this house unique

Jean and I were married on this property in 1996 on the gazebo I built over looking the lake. I bought this lot our home sits on in 1990 as a place to get away. I met Jean in 1992 at age 57 and we took a drive to the country.Jean loves the country as much as I and I have always had a dream of sharing our property with others. It has been a long time in coming, but GOD is always faithful and for 20 years I have wanted to build a cabin or small house to share with others. In about 2004 Jean and I were blessed to buy the lot next to ours and my dreams and blessings began to take shape. The lot next to our house had a burned out cabin on it and the yard was a boulder field, I mean the size of a refrigerator and up along with an old septic system and too many trees to talk about. After some two and one half years of working with the corp of Engineers my first plan took shape, Cut a road to the lake, but how, three or four people and a couple road people told me it could not be done. Well GOD had a plan and I had a couple of wonderful friends, Larry Mattingly and August Henning who I am so blessed to know. With Larry doing the brain work and August and his son doing the digging, out came the trees, up came the huge rocks and as I watched with tears in my eyes in two days I had a road to the lake. NOW THE REST OF THE STORY! In 2013 I was able to start my dream of 20 years, a guest house to rent and share with our friends. Since Jean and I were married on this property, Jean thought their may be others who may do the same, so my final thought is on SPECIAL OCCASIONS WEDDINGS,ANNIVERSARY,BIRTHDAY,FAMILY REUNION,etc. If you think our home may fit into your plans we would be honored to talk with you about rates for ground rental.

July 4th weekend.

This property was well maintained and very relaxing. We loved our stay and will definitely be coming back in the future. The Koi pond was really neat and the waterfall running outside of the bedroom was a nice feature. The owners were very nice and accommodating. Had a wonderful time.

Serene & Peaceful

Serene & Peaceful
  • 5 out of 5
Our stay was very serene and peaceful. The place was well put together and organized. There were only two of us, but the house has plenty of sleeping accommodations for a larger family. We enjoyed the fire pit at night; the BBQ pit for grilling; sitting on the swing and gazing into the starry sky; It's a great place to simply relax and unwind. Closest restaurants and shopping area is about 20-minute drive.
Gene and Jean were very helpful and pleasant. They made sure our stay was comfortable. We will come back in spring :-)

Owner's Response: Dear Mason, Jean and I want to say we are delighted you chose our home as a resting place for the weekend. We are sorry we had to leave in an emergency situation. Thanks so much for your view of our rental. We will be delighted to see you and your guest and your children in the spring. We are in the process of buying a pontoon boat to keep in the lake to rent to our guest. We are so blessed to have a home on the lake, soon will be 25 years, and now to have a guest house and many other beautiful gifts, our fish pond, the view of the valley from a high elevation, the easy walk to the river, the view of the three wooden crosses as you walk past the large fire pit down to the waters edge. I'LL close by asking GOD to continue to bless you till we meet again. Sincerely, your friends at the lake, Jean and Gene

Owner's Response: Dear Rob and Mindy, It was Jeans idea to use Serenity Gardens as a place for weddings and other family gatherings. Jean and I were married here on the grounds almost 20 years ago and you and Rob know my dreams of sharing our blessings with people who need a place to get together. Your reception was a beautiful occasion to be a part of for Jean and I. Now Mindy, about your family and friends, you are right, they are like family to us. I am so glad you and Rob enjoyed the stay, and you and your family are welcome to come see us when you want too. May GOD Bless you and Rob, your whole family and all who attended your reception here with us. Sincerely, Gene and Jean Ohlmann

Owner's Response: Dear Brenda and Tim, Sorry you had to leave a little early. Thanks for the warm and thoughtful words you had to say about your stay at Serenity Gardens. I had told Tim about the wonderful pizza at Little Daves and you two have a rain check when you visit us again.

Family Celebration

  • 5 out of 5
We had a great time this past weekend and so thankful for the covered pavilion. The deluge of rain didn't dampen our spirits celebrating my in-laws 50th wedding anniversary. The pavilion worked great for all the family to eat and visit. This was a great place for the my family to stay so we could visit our extended family staying at Axtel.

Owner's Response: Dear Patty and Family, Jean and I want to thank you for the review about our property. When the rains came and I saw this large group of people visiting, laughing and having a great time I could only thank God for the pavilion. Little did we know some ten years ago when we built the pavilion that we would be so blessed to watch families enjoy the shelter. It was Miss Jeans idea to use our grounds for such occasions. Thanks again, GENE and JEAN

What a great getaway from the city!

  • 5 out of 5
WOW! It was so nice to get away from the city and enjoy such a lovely and peaceful place. The layout of the cabin and grounds are great. We had a wonderful time while staying there and the owners were very gracious and hospitable. The scenery was nice as well as the coy fish pond! We really enjoyed fishing off of the bank and caught many fish and loved the waterfall in the lower bedroom. The kitchen had everything we needed, and although we didn't bring any children with us, the upper loft with the pull-down ladder would've been perfect for them. Two thumbs up!
