About Jan

Owners ,Jan & Craig, have been welcoming guests to Lake Barkley for 14 years. As avid fishermen and boaters, we believe the Lake Barkley & Kentucky Lake area to be one of the best in the country. If you enjoy fishing, boating, taking scenic photos of the natural beauty of the Lakes, we're happy to share the Lake way of life with you.

Jan purchased this cabin in 2003

Why Jan chose Eddyville

We have been vacationing in Western KY since our children were youngsters. The area is family oriented and safe. Now our grandkids look forward to their week at the LAKE. They have learned to fish and ride jet skis on the uncrowded bays of LAKE BARKLEY. You can even catch glimpses of the area wildlife along the shores, such as deer, bald eagles, black-footed ferrets,racoons, ducks, herons etc.The unspoiled natural beauty of the surroundings is rejuevenating.

What makes this cabin unique

It can be a challenge to find a nice, clean, well-appointed private home directly on the Lake . The mature shade trees offer the opportunity to view many bird species while relaxing on the covered deck. There is plenty of open water for all to enjoy. There is a complimentary covered slip for your boat at the community dock, an easy walk from the back door of the Lake House. A new floating swim platform in the swimming area has proved very popular with adults and kids. Swim or paddle out and climb up the ladder and enjoy sunbathing on the large deck.

Perfect Rental

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying at this rental with our family and friends. The house was very clean and roomy. Jan was very easy to work with and extremely helpful. The house is located in a calm bay that was perfect for fishing, swimming, and tubing. We caught several catfish right off the dock. We will definitely stay here again.

Great Place!

A group of friends and I rented this home for the week of 4th of July. The house was spotless and had all the amenities for cooking and cleaning. The owners were gracious and the property was very clean. We would come back in the future.

Eddy Bay Lake House

  • 5 of 5

The highlite of our summer for the last 10 yrs.+ has been our annual stay in this homey, comfortable, exceptionally clean lake house. With one child and family living in Wi. And the other one living in Texas, this location is a great "meeting place" for both families. This house and location provides more than enough room and activities to keep our 6 granboys busy and HAPPY at all times.Even when offered other exciting locations for our "summer vacation"....well....the vote is ALWAYS 100% EDDY BAY LAKE HOUSE.... Oh... The family pets can come along also... As the family grows.. There are accommodations for extra people just steps away.. And...Jan and Craig, the owners are absolutely the very best....

Great Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

House much larger then expected, everything needed was there and the owners were very helpful and friendly, we had a great time and hope to return next year. Not very often you can get a house with the water right out your back door with a covered boat dock. Shopping, Marina, Gas and fun activities for the kids all close by and the weather was great.

Owner's Response: It is so nice to have guests stay at our Lake House and enjoy their vacation time together. Nowadays, when families are geographically spread across the country, it is wonderful to see folks reconnect with relatives and friends again. Some families have returned for as many as 8 years, and watching their children & grandkids grow up is just amazing. We strive to make the experience one that will always be a fond memory for all.

couples getaway

  • 5 of 5

Four couples shared this very comfortable home on Lake Barkley for a week this fall. The home had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation: clean and spacious rooms, well-equipped kitchen, helpful and friendly owners, inviting indoor and outdoor spaces to gather and relax. We definitely will return.

Great Vacation House!

  • 5 of 5

This is an affordable, clean, "homey" vacation home with lots of space for family and friends. My family and I have been going there for years. It is right on the water with beautiful views and easy access to the water for swimming, fishing, and boating. My kids love the water trampoline!

In a world of video games and TV, my kids actually look forward a week of fishing off the dock, swimming, games of ladderball, volleyball, badminton and horseshoes, roasting marshmallows, boating, jet skiing, and card games in the evenings that the whole family participates in. There is also a waterslide park less than 10 minutes away that my kids and I visit each year. This is a great place for busy families to reconnect!

It would also make a great place for a girls get-away or a couple's get-away. The lodge has additional accomodations for family reunions or get-aways with friends.

If you love boating and just hopping in the boat to go for a ride, you can't beat this. They have a dock onsite with slips for rent. The large cove they are nestled in makes for smooth water great for tubing, water-skiing and jet skiing. I highly recommend it and am looking forward to returning in a few months for our annual vacation!
