Overview

About the property

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Loft, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 2-10)

Booking for Holidays 2016! What more could you ask for in a peaceful retreat? This most conveniently located property is only three miles from Interstate 75 and yet all the seclusion you need with it's wooded setting and beautiful views of the lake from the cabin & private dock. Bring your own boat & launch in public boat slip only steps from the cabin or enjoy the 3 person canoe included in rental.

For the fisherman it doesn't get any better- or if you just want to rest & enjoy God's creation this property is for you! London, Kentucky/Woods Creek Lake is located directly on I-75 in Southeast Kentucky and is easily accessed from Southern Ohio, North, South & Eastern Kentucky & Northern Tennessee.

The cabin is located on the southern tip of Wood Creek Lake. The 900 acre lake is a great fishing spot, has two main forks- Wood Creek & Gillis Branch and several other medium long sloughs. The lake is too narrow for pleasure boating & is a 'no wake' lake. Woods Creek is home of the state large mouth bass record of 13 lbs. 10 oz.

This cozy NONSMOKING cabin offers on the main level a living/dining/kitchen combination, bedroom with queen bed, large bath & utility room. The second level loft has two queen beds and the walkout basement two private full beds and half bath. You will probably not want to leave, but if you do, there are several scenic locations to visit within a short drive. Come enjoy the beauty of Kentucky.

About The Owner

The owners of this property are local natives and local realtors and have a true appreciation for the beauty of Southeastern Kentucky and this property in particular. We have just recently purchased this cabin and plan to derive lots of personal enjoyment and at the same time share the experience with others.

The Owner purchased this cabin in 2009

Why The Owner chose Kentucky

London/Laurel County located within the Daniel Boone National Forest and home of both Woods Creek Lake and Laurel Lake offers some of nature's most magnificent views.

What makes this cabin unique

The Great Escape transports you into such a peaceful, tranquil place and yet is so conveniently located. No other lake properties offer the amount of outdoor entertaining spaces with it's numerous decks, covered porches, covered shelter & dock. Tastefully decorated & truly comfortable.

Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the week of spring break 2017 at The Great Escape. We were in our glory. The cottage was so much more than we were expecting. Extremely cozy and romantic. Truly a beautiful place on the lake. The area is rich in so much history and natural wonders. Beautifully secluded but not isolated. Will definitely go there again.

Loved the Great Escape

  • 5 of 5

The pictures really don't do it justice. It was much bigger than I expected and I'm not sure why there aren't any pictures of the lake, decks, etc. There is only one shower which wasn't a problem for us but I could see how that could be tricky. Accessing the property and communication with the owner went smooth. Great value, we would definitely stay again. A lot of space to spread out.

Clean Cozy cottge

  • 4 of 5

Nice and clean with pretty views. Parking was a bit cramped but we had a large truck with a box trailer so for 4 normal vehicles, it would be fine. I bet it is beautiful in the summer. Each time I spoke with the owner he was polite and delivered on his word. Great deal for the money.

Great Cabin, Great Views and Plenty of Room

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed in this cabin and had such a great time. It was very clean and ready for us when we got there. Each of our grandchildren had their own room so everyone had plenty of space. And the views....WOW. My favorite place was sitting on the swing on one of the decks overlooking the lake. Breathtaking. There are quite a few steps down to the lake but not too many. Tim was great to work with, answered all our questions and even had music playing when we got there. Thanks, Tim, for sharing your cabin. Had a terrific time!
