A Kentucky cabin....

  • 5 of 5

We throughouly enjoyed our stay at the cabin. The owners were extremely accomodating to our group. The description was completely accurate along with other information. The cabin was a perfect fit for our group and truly was a home away from home. It was spacious and provided enough room for our large group. I would recommend this cabin to others if they are planning a trip to Kentucky. I enjoyed staying in a home (rather than hotel) and the attractions (Mammoth Cave, Kentucky Down Under, and Dinosaur World) were all within less than an hour drive. If you are looking for peace and quiet and don't care that "the city" (sores, restaurants) is about a 35 minute drive, then this cabin is for you.

Thanks again!!

Not quite what I'd hoped for!

  • 3 of 5

The house itself was great - well maintained and plenty of room for our group of seven. No issues finding the place and the owner was very responsive to emails throughout the process. My big disappointment was the lack of real access from the property to the lake. There is a clearing of the woods in front of the house but then the woods extend all the way down to the waterline. Making your way through the woods is not a pleasant experience, no real path. A little ways down there is a road to the lake but when you hit the lake there are docks blocking any access to the water and you can't go on the docks for fear of eviction. There is really no access to walk along or fish along the lake from the property.

I purposely look for lakefront property with the intention of being able to actually get in the water for an early morning or late evening swim. This was not possible. There is a marina close by - we rented a pontoon boat one of the days and that was great fun. Nolin lake is not as big as some of the Kentucky lakes but it is a very nice lake. However, I was there with 5 young adults who wanted to rent jet skis or a power boat. The marina's website did advertise they had jet skis and power boats to rent but when we called a week ahead of time they told us they no longer rent them - neither did the other marina a little farther away. When I asked why they advertised it on their website they said they don't update that. False or not updated advertising seemed to be the theme of the area. One place had a hugh sign advertising ice cream - and when we got there he told us that part of the business was closed down (take the sign down then) - another place was advertising they were a small winery - when we got there the guy doing some work kind of laugh and said maybe in the future but for now we could ride through the area and look at the houses. Not a big deal but as I said sort of a theme for the area.

We did spend a few days in Mammoth National Park - took a cave tour, did a kayak down the green river, took a hike. I know there are a few additional tourist attractions in the area for younger kids - dinosaur land etc but mine are older so for us the attractions were limited to Mammoth and Nolin Lake both of which were great.

There didn't seem to be many places in the area to go out to eat which for us didn't matter too much as a family we like to cook and spend the evening playing cards and games so the house was great for that.

Owner's Response: There are two paths (one is paved a couple of houses down and the other one to the right of the property is cleared and graveled up until the redline, at which point the Corps of Engineers will not allow any modifications to the shoreline) that lead to the water. I specifically state where these are located in the directions that are sent when reservations are made. It appears that in this instance the water was accessed directly from the back of the property, in which case, would be more heavily wooded and not cleared and difficult to get to the shoreline. Whenever I am questioned regarding the water access, I always stress that it is not the most ideal (not impossible) area to swim and fish from because of not being allowed to use the docks. The Nolin Corps of Engineers does not allow renters to use the private docks of the subdivision owners. If caught allowing renters to do so, the Corps revokes the owners' right to possess a boat slip. There is, however, the dam which is only 5 minutes away that provides easy access for swimming and fishing that is much more accessible. When thumbing through the reviews, one will notice that I always respond to people who comment on the lake access to ensure there is no misunderstanding of what to expect. I highly suggest sending specific questions to me so that I can provide clarity on any ambiguity one may have regarding the layout of the cabin and surroundings. I also recommend reading through the reviews to ensure future guests have a clear understanding of what other guests have experienced.

Great house with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

This house was amazing! If you enjoy sitting on the deck in the morning with your coffee reading or just enjoying the amazing view, this house is for you. The kids enjoyed the games and pool table too. I would highly recommend staying here! You really don't have to bring anything extra as the house had everything. The house was also very clean.

Great family getaway

  • 4 of 5

We loved our stay! The view was nice, the porches were relaxing, and the kitchen was very well stocked. Our only complaint was we couldn't figure out the cable on the main television, and the speaker system downstairs. Directions for use would have been helpful. We had many laughs, which is all you could ask for to make a memorable family vacation.

Clean, room enough for kids and adults. nice deck. all the appliancesame you need

  • 5 of 5

My goal was to bring friends and family together for a relaxing weekend. It was my wife's birthday surprise! !! I was looking for a place that would entertain some kids and teenagers and also bring adults together around the table or out on the deck this place had it all. Is plenty of room easy walk down to the lake the neighbors were just fantastic. I had to make a call to the owners to verify that I had everything in line to go for the weekend the process online was so easy the owners were great they just seem to be wonderful and kind people. I had an idea in my mind of what I wanted the weekend to be in this place set it up perfectly for what I wanted. It was a great weekend everybody's talking about it, they're already wanting to go back.

If you bring food and charcoal everything else is there. It was just a great, comfortable and relaxing time. Thanks for the wonderful stay.
