About the property

Custom built 3000 sq ft, 4 bedroom, 2.5 bath.

This is our private lake get away. We are very selective on when we rent and whom we rent to. We charge a premium price, deposit and cleaning fee to insure a great experience every time someone arrives. Our place is not for everyone and we are not in the rental business, but we can guarantee you will enjoy your stay with us. We only offer the cabin when we can't get there and want to protect it for our enjoyment as well.

Our bedrooms are best suited for 6 adults and 4 kids or 8 adults. Because this is not a rental unit, you get access to the same kitchen and pantry items that we use when we are there.

We are easy to deal with and always accessible by phone or text for your immediate needs before, during and after your stay.

Thanks for your consideration and let us know if you have more questions.

About Shawn Archie

Our rental price and limit of 8 adults or 6 adults/4 children is non-negotiable and why we're only looking for a select few families to share our home with year after year.

We and have 3 kids (13, 11 & 7) so this house is set up for family fun and entertainment.

Shawn Archie purchased this house in 2012

Why Shawn Archie chose Kentucky

Located in the newest upscale waterfront community on the lake, Western Shores (20 minutes from Murray, KY) provides the best lots available on the lake. Community pool, hot tub, pavilion w/ kitchen and fire place, boat ramp, paved roads, underground utilities, nature areas and trails. The community boat slip is very close from our home. Store your boat or just hang out on our private dock with a large swim platform.

What makes this house unique

Custom home finished in May 2012, this all new construction home has everything we need to spend weeks or months at the lake. We have a great view of the lake and Tennessee River anytime of day or night. Located 10 miles south of the 68/80 bridge our part of the lake is mainly fishing with a lot less boat traffic than north of the bridge so you can ski, float or just hang out without the worries of rough water.

Dream Vacation

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have dreamed of renting a big house and vacationing with our entire family. This house and its amenities were a perfect fit. The house is amazing and it is fully stocked with anything you might want. The layout is perfect for multiple families, with two bedrooms and a bath on each side of the downstairs family room. The screened porch was a favorite hang-out spot, as well as the covered boat dock. Having the kayaks available was another plus as well as the fact that the beautiful infinity pool was within walking distance. My husband and I, along with our two children and their spouses, and our 3 grandchildren would give this dream vacation a 5 star rating. Mr. Shawn was so accommodating and made everything about our stay easy.

amazing house!

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this house without any reservation. The property was beautiful and the owner was great to work with. The house was perfectly suited for our family. We have young children who enjoyed fishing, swimming, boating, and throwing a ball around in the back yard. A perfect getaway spot on the quieter area of kentucky lake!

A beautiful week on the lake

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed as soon as we got to the house, it's a beautiful house and property. It was so clean and it was big enough for two families to stay in comfortably. Our kids loved swimming in the community pool and the lake, kayaking in the lake and of course fishing. The house was fully stocked with everything you need to feel at home. It was really nice to sit in the enclosed patio after the kids were asleep and relax. The owner/manager was great at communicating with us and answering any questions we had. We would definitely recommend to others to stay in and cant wait to come back the next time we are in the area. Thanks again.
