I grew up in Mayfield KY about 20 miles from the lake. I now live in St Louis MO. My husband and I built this house so that we could visit our aging parents without the hassle of packing and unpacking all of the time and with a view toward retiring there someday. The house was built for us, not as an income property so it has many touches that other available houses do not have - huge fireplace, oversized windows overlooking the lake, high end appliances, high ceilings, tall doors,maple and cherry floors in the bedrooms, cherry handrails, large yard (3+ acres) etc. After 3 of our parents died, we no longer came to the lake as often but could not bear to sell the house where we had spent so much quality time and where our grandchildren had made so many memories. We decided to rent our house through Homeaway to defray the cost of keeping our part time home and so that others could create great memories there as well.
Melinda purchased this house in 1998
Since we live in a large city, we wanted a place that was away from the hustle and bustle. We found that here. The house sits on 3 acres plus TVA land. We have deer and other wildlife everywhere. At night the stars are very bright and unobstructed by light pollution. You hear the sounds of nature instead of the rumble of cars.
We love that you can see the lake from every room of the house. It just embraces the lake. Additionally the bathrooms have views of the woods. Sitting on the deck at night with a fire or watching the moon rise over the lake is a priceless treat. Kids can play in the woods or yard and you do not have to worry about them. It is just a good place to be..
the house was in perfect shape and well taken care of. the veiws are stunning with the entire back of the house being all windows the veiw of the lake is great. the boat dock is a great place to hang out and have a fire at dusk. very peaceful and private. The back deck is a nice place to have a cook out for dinner or lunch. And the sat light tv came in handy when them uninspecting storms come.
Our family enjoyed a new experience staying in this beautiful home for Christmas! The weather was great so we were able to enjoy the spacious dock and the side screened in porch. The house was beautifully decorated and the setting so peaceful and serene. The only thing I can think of that needs corrected on the website is the number of bathrooms. It says two full and two half baths. it just has one half bath but that did not matter. Everything was provided which made traveling easy. A Walmart Super Center is about 20 minutes away. I would highly recommend this house. Thanks again!!
The house was really lovely and comfortable. We especially loved the dock! We had such a good time relaxing at "I Had Rather Be Fishing" We would love to go back sometime and would recommend it to friends and family.
This property was the perfect getaway for our multigenerational family reunion. The layout allows plenty of room for everyone to enjoy the space. Great view of the lake with Windows everywhere! Well appointed so you can make plenty of good meals for the family. Outdoor patio space, grills, dock was all as described by owner. Kids had a great time fishing, kayaking and hanging out lakeside. Definitely recommend!
Our family had a great time at Melinda's house! The dock was perfect for relaxing and watching the Grandkids swim. Not sure I can add any thing new that hasn't been said except that my wife said more than once she would love to buy the place :) We will definitely recommend!
This was a perfect place of not only fun filled activities that sooo many of family and extended family enjoyed, but a place of solitude . We had the opportunity of a lifetime full of memories created here from out of town family from Southern California and close nearby family friends to gather . The circumstances of two of the guests who are facing life struggles of debilitating medical issues allowed them to recover at their convenience as needed and to participate with all that was enjoyable right outside the grounds when they were feeling well enough to participate. We we so blessed to have found such a place that gave us all the amenities needed to create such great memories. The owner was very gracious and understanding in allowing us to extend our stay as well. It fit our needs beyond words or description . As I like to refer to situations like we had without going into great detail " it was a divine moment in time"❤️
Very private area. Great for getting away from it all. Sleep in the
hammock on the dock. Float in the lake and sun or, if you bring your boat, enjoy boating and tubing/skiing on Jonathan Creek. Fall color is gorgeous. This house is surrounded by woods and is not in a subdivision. Two kayaks available for tenant use. The house is on Jonathan Creek which is one of the large bays of Kentucky Lake, one of the largest manmade lakes in the world.
Other Activities: Boating/fishing (guides available nearby)/ hiking TVA lands around the house and Land Between the Lakes.
Golf: Many golf curses available nearby. Ky Dam golf course is a well maintained 18 hole course. Kenlake has a very nice 9 hole course. Miller Golf Course is operated by Murray State University and is excellent. There are many others available in the area.
