More than a Blessing

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazing. It is beautiful, comfortable, roomy and the place to relax. Every room has an incredible view. The owners have anticipated every need from a fully equipped kitchen to comfortable linens. Cell reception and Wi Fi worked great. Everything about this home is first class. The attention to detail is outstanding. The decorating is lovely. We plan to return. Beautiful home, beautiful surroundings and oh, so inviting.

Wonderful and Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at the cabin and we loved it. The only glitches were when the TV didn't have any guidance and a call was needed to help adjust the settings. The other area was that the jetted tub wouldn't hold water. Other then that, we again had a great time and look forward to the next visit.

Great Relaxing Place

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 loved Blessing by the Lake

As the photos show it is a beautiful home and very well decorated

The beds were comfortable and the towels and lines were soft.

The quiet AC and fans kept us cool on hot and/or muggy days.

The house has everything you need, with 3 tv's and WIFI for the ones who must still maintain access to the world.

The home is located down the street from farms with cows, while directly across from a field of tobacco (this year). The road does has some traffic from campers heading to and from the Bailey Point Campground.

The neighbors to the south can be heard but not seen but walk thru this property to access the private dock.

The woods offer wildlife. We saw five-line skink lizards, chipmunks, squirrels, and got a great photo of a wood pecker. There are various bees or wasps but the owner has set up humane traps and bug spry if needed.

We were really surprised how many areas of the house you could enjoy. Seating areas include the loft, great room, two upper deck outside areas (off both bedrooms), screened in porch, the super long front porch and the walk out basement. We felt a couple of families could enjoy this home at one time. The sunsets were beautiful - though a little obscure by the trees. The west A frame windows sometimes blinded you when making dinner in the kitchen.

Mammoth cave is 45 minutes away and we stopped at a Walmart at Glasgow. Almost daily we would visit Barren River Lake State Park - were we rented pontoon boats for the day, we are nof golfers but had fun just renting the golf carts, there is a beach, plenty of deer, horseback riding, nice trails and the entrance is free. We rented the boats on the weekdays and enjoyed the cruising and floating the miles of river with very few others on the water. We saw many large fish, turtles, heron, hawks, and occasional eagle. Most of the shore is rocky and/or steep like at this cabin. We visited local nature preserve trails and other campgrounds in the area.

So we enjoyed both the nature and the many amenities this cabin home offered.
