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.

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!

My husband and I took our kids and one of their friends with us on a little weekend getaway for Spring Break. The pictures do not do this place justice! It was so beautiful and serene! When we first walked in the cabin, there was music playing found a note from the owner on the counter and we instantly felt at home. There was room for everyone to have their own space inside and out. It has outstanding multi-level decks. It was still cold though and we did not get to enjoy the outdoor space as much as we would have liked but we still did some fishing and had a fire in the fire pit on the deck. We went to see the Falls and walked some trails. We also went to see Lake Cumberland. We only complaint was the bed on the main floor across from the bathroom. It was very creaky and seemed very small. My husband and I are not big people (I am only 5'2" and hubby is 5"8) but we had no room to even roll over. The room itself is large enough to put a bigger bed in there but I think the bed has seen better days and it just needs replaced (boxed springs and mattress). Other than that - we had no complaints. The kitchen was very well stocked with anything you could ever need. The owner was very helpful and responded to our texts right away. We would definitely go back!! We all loved it very much and would recommend it!!

Great getaway for college friends reunion!

  • 5 of 5

It had been way too long for this close yet "far away getaway"! The cabin was a perfect place for us to spend some quality, uninterrupted time together reconnecting. The cabin is roomy with a good layout of kitchen/living area as we prepared our meals together. Our time there was very relaxing as we enjoyed the electric fireplace and the view of the lake was absolutely beautiful as the snow was falling! (Tim was great in accommodating our arrival time as snow was predicted!) We especially enjoyed the game started by a previous guest - "Where's George?" You have to go to find out!!! We would recommend this cabin for any type of group!

Family absolutely fell in love with this cabin

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful cabin, beautiful Lake, peaceful, secluded, exactly what we wanted. Rained a lot but everyone loved the cabin and didn't mind spending the indoors. I on the other hand canoed and fished when it didn't rain and when it poured rain, did everything I could to catch fish but only landed a single largemouth, which was disappointing but just to be out in the canoe rain or shine eased the pain of no fish. The fall colours were spectacular.

Tim was extremely helpful and just a phonecall or a text away. He replied immediately to my texts and couldn't have been more accommodating

Perfect for groomsmen!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin worked great for 6 groomsmen to stay together for a couple of nights. Very economical too in comparison with a motel. Perfect!
