Description

Photos and Description of this 4 bedroom holiday home in Cub Run - Santee Shores

5 Yr Old, 4 BDR, 2 BA Lakefront Home Near Wax Marina & Mammoth Cave Nat'l Park.

Spacious, privately owned, lake home sitting on 3 wooded lots in a private lakefront community on Nolin Lake.

This clean & comfortable home offers an open floor plan living room, dining and kitchen areas for group entertaining. Living Room has large screen tv and DVD player. Cable and Wifi provided.

The four large bedrooms have queen beds and can sleep 12 (8 privately). The two full bathrooms are both equipped with shower and tub. The 4th bedroom is a large suite located away from the other bedrooms in the main house. This room has two queen beds with additional room for an air mattress if needed. Some of our guests with children and sharing the house with a large group prefer the additional privacy of this room.

Modern, fully equipped kitchen contains everything needed for your cooking and dining pleasure: glass-top range, built-in microwave, dishwasher and refrigerator. Small appliances include: coffee maker, griddle, mixer, blender, crockpots as well as ample cooking/bakeware and table service. The dining area will accommodate 6 at table, 3 at breakfast bar, and room for 4 more at the game table. The large 20X20 screened porch has a table for 6 and ample seating for a large group.

Relax on the covered front porch or swing in the shade provided by the overhead tree canopy. The large side yard provides space for wiffle ball, volleyball, or softball games. Enjoy the lake views from the comfort of the newly added 20 x 20 screened porch or nature watch in the wooded area behind the house. In the evening, gather around the fire ring and roast hot dogs and marshmallows.

Enjoy all the water activities a lake has to offer:

For smaller children, swimming is available at two nearby state park locations that have nice beach areas in protected coves. Boat rental is available at Wax Marina during summer boating season. Paddle around the lake in the 2 owner-provided kayaks. Fishing is available from several shoreline locations on site, near the marina shelter area or at nearby state park.

The numerous tourist attractions listed below are located approximately 30 minutes drive. Mammoth Cave National Park north entrance is only 21 miles away with a bonus wow factor of getting to ride the Green River Ferry (free!!!) to reach the visitor center.

Whether your family desires a summer vacation of fun in the sun - swimming, boating and sunning or you wish to visit the many tourist attractions this area has to offer, our Santee Shores home can offer you comfort and quality at an affordable price.

Beautiful, modern and spacious lakefront home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful, modern and spacious lakefront home! Really enjoyed the screened in back porch, deck and the great view of the lake. Big well stocked kitchen, dining area and den with plenty of seating for eight people. Big bedrooms with lots of beds and nice bathrooms.

Would suggest that the bedroom beside the garage needs its own bathroom due to the distance from the rest of the house. Our only complaint was that the heating and air-conditioning wall unit in the bedroom beside the garage is very noisy.

We loved our stay there and would rent it again as well as highly recommend it!

Owner's Response: Glad your group enjoyed their stay at our Santee Shores lake home. The extra guest room off the garage was originally a Man Cave but we always seemed to need extra bedroom space when our whole family was there so we made it into a 4th bedroom. I agree - a 3rd bathroom for that area would be wonderful and that is on my project wish list. We try to make improvements each year to enhance the property for ourselves and our guests enjoyment. This past year the large open deck was added - the prior summer, the screened porch. Maybe a 3rd bathroom in 2017! Cathy

Family Weekend Get Away

  • 5 of 5

We were impressed with your house, everything was wonderful. The beds were very comfortable, the house was clean and welcoming (like being at home) and you had a plenty of extras. Being by the lake was beautiful, my grandsons love to walk down to lake and explore. The screened in porch was awesome in the morning sitting out there having breakfast. We spent a lot of time on the outside deck and fire pit enjoying the surroundings. Thank you for opening your house to us. We had an awesome weekend. We plan on visiting again next year.

Very enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

The property was just as described. Very nicely decorated, clean, and with everything you need. The back deck is beautiful! We did not spend a lot of time at the house as we were out visiting the National Parks and historic sites in the area, but we enjoyed the time we did have there. We would definitely recommend this property. Thank you for a very nice stay!

Great rental

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, well maintained home with a view of Nolin Lake. There is no access to the lake from the property but there is a short trail to follow that leads to the water. There were some hungry and friendly ducks that the grandchildren loved feeding at the end of the trail.

Seven houses down the street there is a paved driveway that leads towards the lake. A short path through the trees leads to docks for the homeowners. This is where we launched the kayaks that are included in the rental. We enjoyed these very much. We took the seats out of our van and we were able to transport the kayaks to the docks. It would be a somewhat hard to get the kayaks to the lake with the little carts provided, but it could be done.

We were very appreciative that there were things such as foil, plastic wrap, and baggies provided.

We really enjoyed the screened in porch. Enjoyed throwing frisbees and footballs in the front yard.

The only thing I didn't like was the fact that the fee that is charged by VRBO is really not disclosed prior to booking. It is a surprise add on when you make your payment. It added quite a bit to our payment that we were not expecting.

Fantastc home- clean, comfortable, spacious

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful girls weekend. Home was spacious, liked double beds and no bunk beds. Big kitchen offered great area to cook in. Love the new deck and screened in porch was lovely. Neighbors were friendly and helpful. We really enjoyed floating at the dock. Thank you so much for being so accommodating and helpful communication. First home we've rented and it was wonderful.
