About the property

4 Bedroom / 2 Bath Cabin With Lakeviews

Our lakefront home is located on Faubush Creek on Lake Cumberland (just across the lake from Conley Bottom Marina and very near to Wolf Creek Marina) and is in the Clearwater Subdivision. It features approx. 2000 square feet plus both covered and open air decking.

Our home features four bedrooms (five queen-size beds and two adult size twins (bunkbeds) and two bathrooms (one with bathtub/shower and one with shower).

The two-story house features a gas fireplace with stone surround and a fantastic view of the lake.

Relax on the front covered porch featuring a two seater bench and swing or, opt for the 3/4 wrap around deck overlooking the lake with outdoor lighting and speakers.

The master bedroom is located on the main level and has sliding doors leading on to the rear deck. Upstairs has two further bedrooms in an open concept plan although one of the bedrooms is a bit more private – this room has a queen size bed and closet. The other bedroom upstairs contains two queen size beds, full bathroom, closet and another deck. These upstairs bedrooms are open concept and do not have doors. Accessible either via the side deck stairs or out the front door and around the house is another private bedroom with a queen size bed, bunk beds (large enough for adults) with a couch and TV/DVD player. Our family uses this as the Kid's Cave but we've had visitors who've used it for a family of 4 with the adults in the queen size bed and the two children in the bunk beds. This room has the best views of the lake!

There is a large collection of games and cards for evening entertainment.

Our home is within walking distance of the boat ramp, however, some will find it difficult to walk back up the boat ramp as this is quite steep. It is also possible to drive and park your car at the boat ramp. We have a large driveway available for boat/jet ski and multiple car parking. It is very easy to park your boat in our driveway and move it back and forth to the boat ramp or give us a call to see if a boat slip is available. The boat slip is shared between two houses so make sure to check for availability. Please note that any size pontoon rented from a marina is not allowed at our boat dock since they are too large. The steep decline of our neighborhood ramp would require a 4x4.

About Toni Dillon

Hello! My name is Toni Dillon and I'm originally from Louisville, KY. My family and I spent nearly every summer at Lake Cumberland with friends - it's where I learned to water ski at the age of 8 and where I knew I wanted to have a family vacation home and eventually retire to one day. I'm living in England now but we come back to Lake Cumberland every summer for 3 weeks to spend time with family - the cabin is where my husband and I were married 3 years ago - on the back deck overlooking the lake! We're making memories for our children there just like my parents did for my siblings and I. I'm happy to open up our home so that your family can create lasting memories here as well! I hope you enjoy your stay and I look forward to hearing from you!

Toni Dillon purchased this cabin in 2008

Why Toni Dillon chose Lake Cumberland

When I decided to purchase a home on Lake Cumberland I had a picture in my head of exactly what I was looking for and I assumed it would take some time to find just the right place. I went to a website that specialized in lakes and when I typed in 'Lake Cumberland' this house was literally the first one listed. I knew immediately this was the place for me.

What makes this cabin unique

It is completely surrounded by trees and has the most gorgeous year round views of the lake. I'm a big fan of gravel roads and driveways and it may sound strange but as soon as your car comes off of the paved road and onto the gravel road that leads to the cabin it just immediately puts you into a different frame of mind and you know it's time to relax and enjoy yourself.

Definitely cozy, we had 7 adults and 2 kids and we couldn't all fit in the living room during a constantly rainy day...

The cabin was a well appointed, well kept up place for our family to gather for the holidays.

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at the cabin. Everything we needed was provided. The cabin was clean and comfortable. There was plenty of sleeping space for everyone. (The middle of the night trips from the kid's cave to the bathroom were not fun in the cold.)Being there the last week of December meant the trees were bare giving us a marvelous view of the lake. My husband and I were in one of the upstairs bedrooms and could enjoy the beauty of the day beginning over the lake before we got up. The area was secluded and quiet. The countryside was beautiful and we enjoyed the drives into the city. The trip to Cumberland Falls took longer than we thought, but, oh my goodness!!! worth every bit of it! We are definitely considering return trips. Thank you so much for sharing the Bird's House with us.

Rustic cabin positioned high over lake cumberland was beautiful for a fall getaway.

  • 5 of 5

Scenery in and around the cabin property was more than I imagined. It would have been nice to be able to access the lake from the property, but walking to the boat ramp was quick and enjoyable. Overall we had a great experience at the cabin and would recommend, especially in the fall.

Beautiful location for a relaxing fall getaway

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the cabin for a long fall weekend. The setting was absolutely perfect. We enjoyed the seclusion the cabin offered with a nice view of the lake and an amazing deck out back. Our group of 8 was very comfortable and the cabin offered everything we needed to cook several nice meals. It was our first time visiting Lake Cumberland and we were all very impressed with the lake and the beauty of the area. Cumberland Falls was a great day trip only about an hour away. Overall we couldn't have been happier and were sad to leave. The cabin was a great value and I highly recommend it.

Nice house and great surroundings. The house was very dirty and dusty and outdated.

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at the house for a week. We found the house to be very nice but was dirty, dusty and a lot of items were outdated. The floors were very dirty, they hadn't been cleaned in some time. Dirt caked in the corners and on shelves. The house was very dusty. One of our guests has allergy issues and struggled through the week. We really loved the house and it's setting. The decks, fire pit and outside areas were nice. One last thing. I wouldn't advertise that the house is within walking distance of the lake, this is a true/false statement. The average person could walk to the lake but nobody with a physical issue, disability or the elderly could do it, no way. We drove down which worked but not what we expected at all.

Owner's Response: We were both very surprised and disappointed to hear that you found our home to be “dirty and dusty”. For me personally, cleanliness is the number one priority; it’s not acceptable that you found the cabin to be in this condition and this will be addressed immediately. Prior to your stay, we sent you very detailed information with my personal email address and the phone number for our Property Manager/Housekeeper and asked you to contact us if you needed any help at all. It’s unfortunate that neither of us were contacted during your week long stay to try and remedy at least the cleaning issues you point out, especially since, as you say, one of your guests has allergy issues. I could have had our housekeeper do another clean while you were out so as not to disturb you. If it had been me, I would have insisted on it. We take your comment on board regarding the walk to the lake. Although my 77-year-old mother frequently walks to the lake from the cabin, some people could find the walk back up the boat ramp to be too steep and find it difficult. We will make this clearer on the website and thank you for the feedback. With regard to your comment that a lot of our “items are outdated” I have no idea what this means. The kitchen appliances are only 3 years old and everything you see in the website pictures is exactly what is in the house. Maybe our decor (rustic, not modern) is not to your taste.

Great cabin! Great location!

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 10 had a wonderful experience at the cabin. We never felt crowded since there was many spots around the deck or in the yard where one could relax alone. Nice views of the lake from the deck. The fire pit was perfect evening gathering place. Plenty of room for all. I asked our group a question and all said yes. The question was do you want to come back here next year. The owners were quick to respond to my questions and were very accommodating to our needs.

Welcome to beautiful Lake Cumberland, Kentucky - the vacation destination for millions of boaters, fishermen, and lake-lovers each year. We can introduce you to all Lake Cumberland has to offer whether it be romance and excitement, peace and tranquility, a family get-away, or just plain fun!

Lake Cumberland boasts many marinas providing boat rentals from fishing boats to state of the art houseboats; lake side restaurants, golf courses, nature trails, water falls and much more!

Guests to Lake Cumberland can take a scenic horseback ride, feed the trout at the Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery, or catch a play or musical production at the historic Star Theater.

Golfers can enjoy playing on our beautiful courses. The Lake Cumberland Golf Club at Lily Creek Resort and Lakewood Country Club are 18-hole championship courses with driving ranges and practice greens.

Enjoy fishing and ready to catch the big one? Lake Cumberland offers trophy-size stripers and hold the state records for brown and rainbow trout and walleye. For fly fishermen, the Cumberland River below Wolf Creek Dam offers some of the best trout fishing anywhere.

Take your time and browse through our many antique, craft, and specialty shops in downtown Russell Springs and Jamestown. You are guaranteed to find the perfect treasure.

Whether you are looking for a weekend get-away, week-long vacation, a Fall foliage tour, houseboat vacation, or racing across the lake, Lake Cumberland is the place to visit.

This area of Lake Cumberland is visited frequently by boaters and fisherman in the summer months, but I would also highly recommend it in the fall. The crowds thin out when the temperatures cool off, the lake is quiet and tranquil and it’s a time of year when the leaves turn brilliant shades of crimson, orange and yellow. The fall colors here are brilliant and the clear nights put on a star show like no other!
