An office is located off the great room that is equipped with a computer, monitor, and printer and offers a view of the rear deck and the lake. Relax in the spacious front sunroom and watch the birds in the English garden.

Lake watchers will enjoy the view from either the back sunroom, the living room, dining room, or the rear deck. The house sits on 1.25 acres on a dead end street and has a circular driveway with ample parking. This house is located .2 mile from the Jonathan Creek boat ramp and has a covered dock with two bays and a fish cleaning station. The bays are large enough to accommodate fishing, pleasure, or pontoon boats, swimming, fishing, and non-covered tie up areas for one or two boats.

This home features a beautiful, well furnished kitchen with a dining table that seats up to six with additional seating for four at the hi-top bar in the rear sunroom. The family room area has a leather sofa, 55 inch big screen TV, surround sound, X-Box 360 with Kinect, MP3 dock, and a wood burning fireplace. Wi-Fi is throughout the house.

The formal dining room, with seating for 6, provides a beautiful view of the lightly wooded back yard and the lake. The formal living room provides seating for eight and is a wonderful place to settle in with a good book or have a conversation away from the noise of a full house or quiet place to observe the lake.

The three bedrooms on the main level include the master bedroom which has a king size bed, 32 inch TV and a separate tiled bath, Jacuzzi tub, and separate shower with three shower heads. Located off the master bedroom is the washer/dryer. The second bedroom includes a queen bed with 32 inch TV.

The basement area also contains the pool room and a game table. Assorted electronic games and board games are provided for those times that you want a break from the lake.

The rear deck, new in 2012, provides an excellent view of sunsets, an observation point for the lake and the wildlife in the community. During your stay you will have use of a four burner gas grill for your cookouts, ample deck seating for dining and a small firepit on the lower deck for those evening outdoor moments. A larger fire pit is located along the path to the lake.

About John Ray

I am a retired Army aviator who was looking for a retirement home.

John Ray purchased this house in 2011

Why John Ray chose Kentucky

This property was selected after searching six lake locations in Tennessee, South Carolina, and Kentucky because of the friendliness of the people in the Kentucky Lake community and the peaceful location of the property while having the ease of access to major highways.

What makes this house unique

The back deck of this home and it's relaxing interior made this the home of our choice for a place to get away.

Great house for a family vacation

  • 4 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this house. Four large bedrooms (two king beds, two queen beds) made plenty of room for all 7 of us. The two sunrooms were inviting and very useable. My son needed to do some business-related work while we were on vacation, and the home office made that very easy, too. Kentucky Lake in general, and the Jonathan Creek area in which this house is located, is very laid-back and slow-paced. Don't expect the big supermarket or mega-Walmart nearby; the restaurants are pretty much all mom-and-pop type. Everything was very much as described in the listing; we did have a water supply line on the toilet rupture during our stay, and the owner had it fixed the following morning - very responsive. All in all, we were very pleased with this house and would recommend it.

It was a great time for all

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time! Plenty of room for 6 adults and 2 kids to spread out. Being able to keep the pontoon boat rental at the dock was very nice. Everything was just as John Ray stated in listing.

Very nice, clean, plenty of room, location is great!

  • 5 of 5

We were here for a family vacation, probably the last one before the kids get married. We had Grandma, her three boys, wives and the grandkids. Ages ranging from 81 to 15, 16 in all. we had plenty of room to sleep. Four big bedrooms plus the office which we put a single blow up mattress in. We did bring some air mattresses which helped. Some of the kids slept on the couches both the family and living rooms. We brought a boat down and enjoyed the dock. Did some fishing, enjoyed the Land between the Lakes, and Patties 1880 Settlement for a great meal.

The location of the house was wonderful. Nice quiet cul-de-sac. We are use to going to Branson on Table Rock Lake, which can be quite busy. Here it was very peaceful and not much boat traffic. Plenty of room to tube and water ski right by the dock. The kids also enjoyed renting jet-skis one day. The boat ramp is about a 1/4 mile down the road and not busy at all.

We had a great week! We just had a couple minor issues with the bathroom but they were taken care of the next day. John is very helpful and a pleasure to rent from.

The family was very happy with everything! Thanks John!!!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay in this lovely home, large enough for all 14 of us. I only had a few disappointments with the rental, there was no ladder on the dock for swimming however we were able to walk down into the water. The house needs a little spring cleaning, the stove in particular. This is a great location, the grounds are nice, great place to stay!

Perfect location for our stay. All six guests agreed that it was a great home for our needs.

  • 4 of 5

Our fishing group have been coming to Kentucky Lake for over 30 years. For most of those years we have stayed in motels. This house was perfect. We did not have any problems during the stay. We had plenty of room for all of us to spread out. Kitchen was great for the food we prepared. We all agreed that we would stay here again. Nice setting next to the lake. Thank you John for the use of your home.
