About the property

Plenty of room for your get together - 1800 sq ft

Spectacular lakefront Condo with private dock!

This first floor condo is the perfect retreat. The condo has 3 large bedrooms, each with a private bathroom. An open kitchen, dining, relaxing space with a pool table, and a den with wood burning fireplace.

The house is divided in two. The downstairs is the portion that is pictured and for rent. The upstairs portion is reserved for my family's private use. We have always been very respectful and aware that anyone staying is on vacation and fully encourage the late nights, noise, bonfires etc that go with that.

Kitchen is all electric and fully equipped (Silverware, pans, stove, microwave, dishwasher.) Each bedroom has a queen size bed with a mattress. There is tons of room for air mattresses or extra sleeping, but bring your own. Washer and Dryer in the condo. One full bathroom and 2 additional half baths. The den has two full size sofas and room for an air mattress. Wi-fi throughout.

About Kimberley Lightfoot

My husband and I wrangle 3 boys who keep us laughing and smiling all the time. The oldest is 8 and loves jumping off the dock and swimming in the cove. He added kayaking to his repertoire last summer. We have managed and owned apartment rentals before, but this is our first vacation rental. The first 3 years have been awesome and we look forward to all the amazing guests this year.

Kimberley Lightfoot purchased this condo in 2013

Why Kimberley Lightfoot chose Kentucky

This property captured our hearts with the fabulous views, the easy water access, and the amazing amounts of wildlife. We don't go a single visit without seeing deer, cranes, otters, or some other critter roaming about.

What makes this condo unique

Wake to an amazing sunrise. Boat all day and tie up to the dock. Come in for a snack and a game of pool. When the sun goes down, light up the charcoal grill and a bonfire for s'mores.

Beautiful Lakeview Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time at Condo on the Cove! The owners were wonderful and met all of my family's expectations. This was the perfect place for my mother's surprise birthday party. There was plenty of room for our group and the kids really enjoyed swimming in beautiful Kentucky Lake, conveniently steps away from the condo.

Great spot in a little cove

  • 5 of 5

Some friends and I stayed here for a long weekend. Just the right size for 3 couples and a few kids. Pool table is clutch while you are relaxing in the A/C having a drink.

Fishing !!

  • 5 of 5

This is our 2nd year staying and is perfect because all we do is fish and eat and sleep. Kimberly and Josh are great hosts and are always there to help when needed. If you want a fishing vacation, this is it ! Thanks Kimberly and Josh.

Creepy and disturbing

  • 1 of 5

There was a very strong, unpleasant odor, in the bathrooms and property owners live in the upstairs condo that was dirty, cluttered and unkempt. The husband was on the upper deck watching as we fished on the dock with random sounds of a skill saw resonating across the back deck. Pictures of the property looked nice and the pool table was an appealing plus, but it was falling apart and dock and yard was not as pleasant as it promised. Only positive was the owners dog was adorable and our little pup enjoyed playing with him.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. I am sorry you did not enjoy your stay. We very unfortunately had a repair to the deck that had to happen immediately. We make all reasonable efforts not to disturb our guests during their stay. The dock and pool table have both been on our list of repairs for this season - look for new photos soon!

Nice, roomy location. Great view + pool table.

  • 4 of 5

We recently enjoyed a one night stay at this condo. The weather was rainy which wasn't ideal, but thanks to the pool table we still managed to stay entertained. The condo has a lot of perks; the kitchen was nicely equipped, the washer and dryer are very handy, the pool table was a lot of fun, the beds were very comfy, and overall I just enjoyed the roominess and amount of space.

The owners and their children live upstairs. Unfortunately, we were woken around 7am when the kids woke up and seemed to be running around on the floor above. Other than that we didn't see/hear anyone that lived upstairs. We were listening to music at a moderate volume until midnight or so the night before. I hope we didn't disturb them or the kids from sleeping but did want to enjoy our stay as much as possible.

The only other downsides worth mentioning I think would be the driveway down to the condo is a bit rough and hard to back into or out of (no spot for a turnaround at the bottom). The pool table, while entertaining, has seen its better days. The sheet of rules asked guests to strip the bed linens and leave them and any dirty towels by the washing machine. Also, it was asked that we either took our trash with us to dispose, or carry it outside to a bin on the property. I was a little surprised by those last two rules, but this was my first homeaway stay so maybe this is normal and just part of the learning process for me.

Overall the stay was much more positive than negative and I wouldn't hesitate to stay again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for your comments! I am glad you enjoyed your stay. We do make all reasonable efforts not to disturb our guests during their stay, and apologize for the early morning wake-up. I will take your suggestion about the driveway as well and see what can be done about adding a turnaround at the bottom. The retaining wall and fresh gravel are from Fall 2016.

Perfect setup for my dad, brothers and fishing

  • 5 of 5

Setup was perfect for our fishing getaway. Plenty of room and beautiful view of the lake. Very hospitable family with a good location for prime fishing spots. Would recommend this location to friends and family.

Just 3 miles north of Moors Camp Marina and 15 miles south of Kentucky Dam State Park - you will find everything you want in a lakeside vacation. Plenty of wildlife, boating and sailing rentals from the marina, and lots of activities for everyone at Kentucky Dam State Park. Parks.KY.Gov for more information. Directly across the lake is the famous Land Between the Lakes with additional activities, hiking trails, an 1800s working farm, planetarium, and a bison prairie. Make sure to check out LBL.org for more information on their happenings.
