Photos and Description of this 3 bedroom holiday home in Kentucky - Kentucky Lake Chalet

2700+ sq. ft. 3 Bedroom, 3 Baths with Billiards Room and Bar!

This house is great for family gatherings or groups of friends that are seeking peace and serenity while enjoying all that Kentucky Lake offers. This chalet-styled home boasts some of the best views of Kentucky Lake from almost every room and the wrap-around decks. Located in a quiet, residential area with a covered, private boat slip/dock on deep water, revel in the sun rising over the lake, view thousands of stars at night, and enjoy the fishing and boating that the Lake is famous for.

On the main level, the living room boasts Italian leather furniture and two stories of windows to take in the “best views of the lake”. The open concept flows into the dining area and fully stocked kitchen. There is also a full bath and a large bedroom with 2 queen beds. The wrap around deck is a great gathering place to relax and enjoy the views or barbeque on the new gas grill.

The upper level has a large loft area with more scenic views. It’s a terrific area for the kids to play games, watch TV, or to read a book. The loft has a queen size sleeper sofa that converts this into another semi-private bedroom. The master bedroom and bathroom with slate tiles and large shower, are also on the upper level. From this bedroom, you can experience the sun rising over the lake – fantastic!

The lower level is sure to please, with a full size game room complete with a full size pool table and an oak bar with leather bar chairs. There is also a TV nook for watching “the big game” or DVDs. Also on the lower level is a full bathroom and private bedroom with a queen size bed. Walk out to the lower-level screened in patio (covered by the upper deck) to more seating outside.

The property sleeps up to 10 (1 king, 3 queen size beds and 1 queen sofa bed), 3 full bathrooms (two have tubs, one has a large newly tiled shower), a full kitchen with all the amenities, and a game room complete with a pool table, bar and leather bar chairs. In full, there are 3 living\ seating areas, upper level deck and lower level screened in patio with plentiful seating.

Cable TV on separate channels (i.e. you can watch different channels in separate rooms!), DVD player, high-speed internet access (wired or wireless) and phone.

There are board games, cards, and bikes available to tour the neighborhood. As stated, there is a boat ramp less than ¼ mile away and you can tie up your water toys in the covered boat slip while enjoying the 30' dock for fishing or sunning! If you don’t have a boat, arrangements can be made for daily\weekly rental of pontoon, speed, or fishing boats from nearby marinas!

About Lorie Chezem

My husband and I were seeking a waterfront property that we could someday use as our retirement home, when we found this fantastic home. The sun coming up over the Land Between the Lakes, privacy, and lake views made it clear that this was the place!

Being as we are a few years away from retirement, we want to share this great house with you! Since purchasing it in 2008 we have completely renovated the house with new appliances, furnishings, a new covered boat slip/dock, screened in porch and new windows to enjoy the fantastic views.

We hope you enjoy this house as much as we do!

Why Lorie Chezem chose Kentucky

This house is like living in a big tree house! On approximately 2 acres, there are no neighbors too close by and a panoramic view of the lake, trees and wildlife. The boat dock is on deep water, so boating and fishing are year-round events.

We looked at other properties in the area, but the wall of windows, open concept and fantastic views made this the home for us!

Comfortable, roomy house full of amenities!

  • 4 of 5

Great house on the lake with all the amenities you need. Well furnished, everything top of the line -- plenty of towels and pillows. Liked the gas grill, washer & dryer. Enjoyed the huge deck with view of the lake. Owners were easy to work with and very responsive. The only thing needed to make it perfect would be a sandy beach area on the property instead of just swimming off the dock. One hint on fishing Kentucky Lake: watch the YouTube videos on how to fish the ledges!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed the amenities...we try to think of what we would want if renting a home for our vacation! The deck is the spot most used by us when we are there - watching the birds, squirrels and even deer, while overlooking the lake. I agree a sandy beach would be lovely, however with the raising and lowering of the water levels, don't think it would last long if we were to put some at the water's edge. Appreciate the fishing hints for future fishermen!

Wonderful home with a great view!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the property and the amazing front deck. The view to the lake is excellent. There is a Mule to get down to the lake that was very handy and the dock is very nice too. The bathrooms are newly renovated and really nice, the beds were comfortable too.

Excellent property

  • 5 of 5

The house was just as pictured! We had 6 adults and it worked out great as each couple had their own bedroom/bathroom and living space to retreat to if needed. Everything was very clean and very well maintained. Lorie was great to answer questions and assist when needed. The house sits up on a hill and is a distance from the water, but the mule/cart provided made the trip to the lake no issue! The lake, as well as the house, was very quiet and peaceful and we enjoyed meals on the spacious deck. We rented a pontoon from Cypress Springs. The family enjoyed catching many fish from the dock. It was a great vacation! We have already talked about doing it again! Thanks again Lorie!

Awesome property with great owners

  • 5 of 5

We took our annual family vacation and chose Kentucky Lake this year. This property was an awesome find for us. The home was everything we hoped for, and Lorie was very easy to work with. The house is situated high on a hill with a steep blacktopped walkway to the lake. Typically they have a Mule for transporting people and supplies. There was a mechanical problem with the machine and was not available for us. Ron and Lorie were very fair and refunded a portion to compensate. Greatly appreciated !!!

Great swimming from the dock and also, we all caught bunches of fish from the dock

Views of the lake are amazing. We enjoyed the decks and the house worked out perfect for 3 families.

We have been using Homeaway for 5 years now, and this was our favorite of all. Definitely will recommend to friends and family

Thanks again for sharing your home with us

Hope to see you next year

Totally enjoyable stay. Loved the home. Gorgeous view!!!

  • 5 of 5

The home was well appointed, lovely decorations, very clean and comfortable. Could not have asked for more. Anything a couple, group or family would have wanted for a super nice stay was provided.

The area of course is gorgeous as is the view from the wonderful deck ---loved that spot for morning coffee. There is a nice dock for swimming and boat folks and a nifty way down to it. Even our 13 year old dog got to ride down - that was interesting. All in all I would HIGHLY recommend the home and thank the folks for sharing it with us.

Peaceful family get away for all ages

  • 5 of 5

This home is fully equipped with everything you need for a relaxing week on the water. We docked two boats at the covered dock for the week and enjoyed a peaceful week of boating with kids and grandparents! We nearly had the water to ourselves most days. Community boat ramp is only 4 docks down and easy to launch/load. Our dog lulu loved being able to spend the week with us too. We had breathtaking views of the full/blue moon all week. The only thing needed in this rental is bathing suits and food (and boat if you'd like) - everything else is provided. Owners are easy to work with and were readily available for questions. We will rent this again!
