About Renee Gayheart

My Mom and I live near the University of Cincinnati Ohio. We have a beautiful house with a beautiful garden. I graduated from St. Bernard Elmwood Place High School, and The University of Cincinnati. My Mom graduated from Our Lady of Angels.

Renee Gayheart purchased this cottage in 2000

Why Renee Gayheart chose Lake Cumberland

We stayed in a friends house for Mother's day, and our friend said 'He was building a handicapped accessible house that would be perfect for me. We stayed in the house one time, and I said 'If you ever decide to sell the house let me know.' He called two weeks later and asked me if I would like the house. My Mom and I were so excited and we bought it and have been so happy ever since.

What makes this cottage unique

I am in a wheelchair and the house is truly made for people in wheelchairs. The house is very open so I can get around very easy.

House was nice & clean. I was nice that everything was there, we just needed food & clothes! Close to Conley Bottom which is nice if you're a boater. We'll stay here again.

Beautiful property close to the marina

  • 4 of 5

We rented this house over the Labor Day weekend, with another couple and their two young girls. The directions provided by Renee were spot on. No trouble getting to the place or getting in. Parking is pretty much limited to two vehicles. And it is located within 5 minutes to Conley Bottom marina. The neighborhood is very nice and quiet.

The house was clean, with clean linens and bath towels provided. The kitchen had just about everything you would need for cooking and even has a dishwasher. The AC worked great. The handicap ramps were awesome for hauling the coolers.

What we did need but did not take was extra toilet paper and paper towels, soap and shampoo. These may have been noted in what was provided but honestly i just skimmed over the list, noting that the linens were provided. (I have a second trip book soon to another Homeaway home and I think i got confused between what is provided at one home and this one.) Also there was only one dish towel and a scrubber, no dish cloths. Next time I will pack these items.

We did not use the hottub, but noticed it was only half full.

I would defintitly stay here again, and i would recommend this property to firends and family!

Nice place, well kept

  • 4 of 5

Everything thing we needed was there, and it was nice to not collect linens for the trip. The hot tub was great, the marina was close, the kitchen was well stocked. When we got there, we were surprised to see a tennis court, basketball hoop, sand volleyball court, pool, and community grill and play area basically in the front yard. We were soon informed that we did not have access to these areas. That is a shame. Although, the cornhole set on the back deck is much nicer!

Very Nice! accommodated us perfectly.

  • 4 of 5

The house is very nice. It was HOT and the air worked great! also great front porch for watching the storms. I would like to know the situation with the parking and amenities I had my boat parked in the front lot only for loading and unloading and both times was told, " you can't keep that there." yet the parking lot filled up with boats and cars every night even though I couldn't park there for 30 min. Otherwise I would highly recommend this home very close to conley bottom which is very nice for easy access to the lake.
