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.

Will Not Disappoint

  • 5 of 5

This property was a perfect setting for our family of 12 to gather and enjoy a week of fun together. I chose this place because of outstanding reviews given by previous renters. It met my expectations and then some. Not even an hour after arriving, we felt "at home". The kitchen was equipped well enough that we were able to prepare all meals for the week with ease. Cathy has the cupboards supplied well enough with staples that if you forget something, it's probably there! The screened-in porch was a relaxing, quiet spot for that first cup of coffee in the morning, and a place to unwind and listen to the sounds of nature in the evening. On days our kids and grandkids visited the the caves and beaches, my husband and I found the village of Glendale for antique shopping, and Gethsemene Abbey to satisfy our interests, both less than an hour away. The Amish store just a few miles from the house has many interesting items in its inventory, and a grocery store which includes some homemade goodies for your sweet-tooth. The whole family enjoyed a day on the lake with a pontoon rental from Wax Marina just across the lake from the house. Most of my family also took kayaks, (which Doug and Cathy make available with the house), out on the lake. Neighbors, Dean and Carolyn (who are also property managers) were very helpful in providing additional info about the area. We were barely home before being notified that the damage deposit was refunded. They couldn't have done more to make this vacation experience more pleasant! Hopefully we will be able to return for more adventures on Lake Nolin and enjoy this cozy house again!

Clean, comfortable, and cozy!

  • 5 of 5

Indoor accommodations: My family had a wonderful time at the Albrights' vacation home. It was very spacious and yet cozy with plenty of casual gathering areas, perfect for our 4-generational family vacation. The 'spacious' sleeping arrangements (no two bedrooms shared a wall, so there was no unwanted noise issues) came in very handy since our group's ages spanned a variety of privacy needs, such as: a rambunctious 6 year old and her equally rambunctious older brother, a not-yet-sullen-but-don't-count-your-eggs-before-they-hatch teenager, parents of said teenager, and patriarch of us all, Great Grandpa B. who just celebrated his 87th birthday this year. The central air made things comfy for everyone, and the sizable enclosed deck was perfect for a bug free place to relax!

Outdoor accommodations: The kayaks and bikes were great fun for the outdoorsy folks in our group, while the deck was the ideal place to listen to nature while knitting or reading. My children needed a day to adjust to swimming in a river (we're lake folk, being from Michigan), so they played in the front lawn and roomy driveway with the garden hose and sprinkler. The neighbors were very nice and the street saw more golf cart and foot traffic versus cars and trucks. Basically, we felt at home!

Location: If you get carsick easily, you might be better off staying at a hotel off the freeway since this is in the midst of beautiful winding rivers and the beginnings of cave country. Otherwise, the roads in and around the home are lovely, showcasing some amazing views of rolling hills, Amish farmsteads, and over a dozen examples of the Kentucky Quilt Trail. To get anywhere touristy, you need to drive at least 20 minutes in any direction, not because of distance, but because of all the curves. But definitely check out Detweilers's Country Store: lots of great quilting fabric, bulk food goods, fascinating selection of Amish books, plants, and MORE! Oddly enough, there wasn't much locally made products, but that's probably due to the state's Cottage Food laws. Still, the selection there was pretty impressively diverse with some gluten free options. And I might have fallen in love with their jerky sticks. Just sayin'.

Overall, we had a lovely time in a place that easily felt like home! I highly recommend this place. Thank you Cathy and family!

A Great Family Weekend!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent experience at Cub Run this past weekend. It was a perfect location to meet our three children. The house was very clean and well maintained. We loved the big screened in porch......it was great for lounging, playing games, and eating our meals. The house had a Cornhole (Bags) game and two kayaks that we enjoyed using during the weekend. We would recommend this property to anyone looking to enjoy the Nolin Lake/Mammoth Cave area.

Great Stay at Cub Run

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Cub Run in Santee Shores on Lake Nolin in Kentucky. The house provided a nice comfortable stay for seven and the two beds in the back room were ideal for the teen girls. The modern open kitchen/dining area was great for our first night's dinner (tacos) and the counterspace was ideal for our taco assembly line. We played cards and board games under the fan on the screened in porch and even toasted marshmallows over the fire pit later that night. We spent the next day on the lake in a pontoon boat rented from Wax Marina just 5-minutes away. Then, we returned to Cub Run for dinner and an outing on the lake in the owner's kayaks which we launched from the Santee Shore's docks located just a short distance away. The boys found frogs, the girls found Wi-Fi, and the parents relaxed to the sights and sounds of Kentucky's native birds in the backyard along the lake. After checkout on our last day we drove to nearby Mammoth Caves for a tour of the our nation's most extensive underground natural cave system. I can't wait to go back.

Wonderful Sisters' Week!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My three Sisters and I just returned from another fabulous annual week together! The house couldn't have been more perfect. Everything we needed; including the wonderful HUGE screened porch (which is why we booked this property) where we spent most of our time. We enjoyed dining in Leitchfield nearby and cooking in the kitchen which had all the supplies and utensils that you would have at home. All beds are very comfy and the living area very spacious. The attention to detail is amazing and Carolyn and Denny, the caretakers next door, were very helpful with suggestions about dining and sightseeing in the area. They made us feel very special and we knew that we could call on them at anytime for anything. You will not be disappointed if you book this home for a small get together or large family gathering.

Beautiful, quiet vacation spot

  • 5 of 5

Family members from across the country met for the week to visit Mammoth Caves and spend time together. This house was perfect for our needs: quiet, spacious, and well appointed. We did not have cell service at the house, which was not a problem at all for us (we wanted to get away from it all), but there was WiFi which served our needs well. We enjoyed our stay immensely and our only complaint was that we couldn't stay longer. We would definitely stay here again if we are back in the area. The owner is also very communicative and called on our arrival day to make sure we made it in okay, which was so nice!
