About Joe & Marilyn Thornton

We are retired, Joe worked several years as auto body repairman & maintenance man on farm, I retired after 22 years working for local cable company. We live in Murray but enjoy the lake area, look forward to meeting our guest, and helping provide them with a great vacation experience. We also have Vacation Rentals, The Cabin & The Man Cave that are available, both are located within walking distance to Beautiful Kentucky Lake.

Joe & Marilyn Thornton purchased this cottage in 2010

Why Joe & Marilyn Thornton chose Kentucky

We owned The Cabin, which we rent, next to The Cottage, we were given the opportunity to buy this as Vacation Rental, we purchased it, furnished it & decorated it, we also have The Man Cave that sleeps 2, great for fishermen, hunters or just couple that wants to get away, which we had a great time changing it from a boat storage unit to The Man Cave, it is Vacation Rental also. This is great for family reunion, can rent all 3 properties, can be together but have privacy.

What makes this cottage unique

It is such a cozy area, you can watch the squirrels, birds, just enjoy the trees, or go for walk, such a relaxing area. When you are ready you can go to the Cypress Springs Restaurant, which is known for their Catfish dinners & Famous Broasted Chicken to eat ( Restaurant is closed for season, will reopen Mar 18, 2016 ) or grill at the Cottage.The Marina has the best Boat Dock located on the Southern portion of Beautiful Kentucky Lake. You can go fishing or for boat ride. Murray is located only 15 miles away, it is the home of Murray State University, is the Friendliest Town in America, has lots of Restaurants, Movies, golf courses, tennis courts Play House in the Park & City Park which has swimming pool & great place for children to play.

Sheer Bliss

  • 5 of 5

We could not have found a better place to suit our needs for our final family visit before our son was deployed. I am so glad our son suggested we look for a cottage or similar in the LBL region rather than reserve two hotel rooms closer to Ft. Campbell. The Cottage provided us with the means to enjoy our limited time together. And I think we took advantage of everything The Cottage had to offer. Took the golf cart to see the fort and tour the neighborhood as well as transport to Cypress Springs for dinner. Enjoyed swimming and fishing in the lake. Easy drive to Ft. Campbell to say our goodbyes. And I just love saying our son took us to Paris for dinner one night. No one needs to know it was Paris, TN! It was a delight to meet Marilyn who showed us The Cabin and The Man Cave, two additional properties they own. One can clearly tell Marilyn enjoys having guests and seeing to their needs. We don't know when our son will return to Ft. Campbell, but we dearly hope we could use the opportunity to stay at The Cottage again. We made some great memories there!

Beautiful, clean, warm and enviting little cottage.

Thank you for hosting us last weekend. We came to fish and had the perfect oasis to relax in when we needed a break from the water. You were friendly and easy to communicate with and your home had everything we needed and more. Highly recommend this property!

Simply Awesome

  • 5 of 5

This is my third stay at the Cottage and I can honestly say that the 3rd time is a charm! The place is very clean and all amenities for a comfortable stay are provided. From the Dish TV to the golf carts for transportation to the Marina for dinner (and that place has great food I might add). The owners are great people and truly display the hospitality and thoughtfulness that would make anyone's stay enjoyable. We will not hesitate to stay here again in the future!

Fantastic Stay at the Cottage

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed 3 nights in this wonderful cottage. The cottage was super clean. The bed was comfy. Marilyn and Joe thought of everything. The kitchen was stocked with cooking utensils. TV had Dish Network. We enjoyed cooking out on the gas grill. We enjoyed walking down to the marina. We also rode the golf cart down to the marina. The cottage is conveniently located close to The Land Between the Lakes. Thanks Marilyn and Joe for the use of your wonderful cottage. We hope to visit again in a few years.

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at Joe and Marilyn's properties. Both times we found a very clean, comfortable and homey cottage or cabin. The properties are located just a half hour from Murray State making it feel like a vacation when we come to visit our daughter at college. They have thought of everything at both the cottage and cabin. We had so much fun taking the golf cart down to the marina and lake at the end of the road. The sunsets from there should not be missed!!! I look forward to our next stay.
