About Paulor Mary Jo

We moved here in 1982 and bought the cottage in 1993 . Some friends convinced us to fix it up and share our paradise. We have enjoyed many years of renting to fantastic people who come to have a good time. It also helps us to realize how lucky we are to live here.

We are usually nearby if you need something or we will give you total privacy.

Why Paulor Mary Jo chose Mammoth Cave

Beautiful views, close to lake and most everyone you meet in Kentucky/Edmonson County are so very friendly.

Edmonson county still does not have a single stoplight, I love that fact!

What makes this cottage unique

Quiet starry skies at night

Many different varieties of wildlife and birds can be seen sitting on the porch. Or a short gentle walk to the lake with your fishing pole just might catch your own lunch.

A short scenic ride and you can be at Nolin state park with picnic grounds, trails, and a sandy beach.

A little farther and you’ll enter the National Park with trees canopied over the roadways. Take a ride on a free car ferry across Green River to continue onto Mammoth Cave National Park, which boasts the longest mapped cave trails in the world. There you’ll have access to many walking trails, bike trails, cave tours and a beautiful informational visitor center. There are also restaurants, gift centers, post office, small grocery supply store, laundry facilities, and other unique attractions located in the park.

Amazing front porch with views of the lake!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great time at Paul and Mary Jo's cabin! It's a small cozy cabin that is extremely clean and well appointed. The kitchen is well stocked with cooking utensils and there are plenty of clean fresh towels. We rented a boat for the day at a nearby marina and had a good day on the lake. We also had a fantastic breakfast at Laura's Hilltop restaurant. Grocery stores are scarce so bring your food and don't forget... it's a dry county! You won't find better owners to rent from!

Beautiful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place to stay! Cottage and lake are beautiful and the owners are great. Had a very relaxing stay at the cottage and enjoyed swimming in the lake. The view from the porch is beautiful. We had a great time at Mammoth Caves and on the pontoon boat we rented. I would definitely recommend renting a boat to get out and explore the lake.

Adorable Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommended! Mary Jo and Paul were so nice! We took advantage of the location and launched directly from the cabin to paddle our kayaks. Also, the location is a short drive from Mammoth Cave National Park which is an amazing place! Would love to come back in the fall to see colors :)
