About the property

This is a waterfront house at Nolin Lake, between Wax Marina and Iberia. The house sits on one wooded acre with a short path to the lake and private dock. Two bedrooms (queen and full beds) and a full bath are upstairs with kitchen, family room, fireplace, and a screened-in upper deck with lovely view of the lake. The downstairs has an additional sleeping area with bunk beds, a laundry room (washer and dryer), and a second family room with a large sectional, second fireplace, and TV. There are large windows on both levels giving you a view of the woods and lake. Board games, puzzles, toys, and DVD collection are plentiful. Lower level opens to a deck which leads to a campfire area and path to lake. The wooded lot has swing, picnic table, two fire pit areas, and an outdoor grilling area with a charcoal grill. The steep drive can pose a challenge for some, but parking is available at the top of the driveway.

This is a very peaceful setting and a great place to get away, alone or with family. Fishing is good all year.

Bring your jet skis or boat. Nolin Lake Estates boat ramp is just around the corner and Wax Marina is close by with boats available for rent.

If you're looking for a nice place for fishing, boating, campfires, and family - this is perfect. If you're looking for a place to bring a crowd and party, please don't inquire.

The house is about an hour and half drive from Louisville, and 45 minutes from Elizabethtown, KY.

Glorious Lake View

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the lake house. It was so quiet and peaceful.... it was just the kind of vacation that we needed! The house was very comfortable, and thoughtfully furnished. It was fully supplied with every necessity, plus lots of extras like the wide array of spices in the cupboard, lots of family friendly DVD's and all kinds of games to play. Favorite memories of our week include: sitting by the lake watching the sun set over the water, roasting hot dogs and marshmallows over the campfire, looking at the stars (which were so bright away from the city lights), hiking and touring Mammoth Caves. We hope to visit again!!

Piece of Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Had a great weekend with siblings and their spouses!. This place is perfect for us and a little piece of paradise! It did rain but it didn't matter. We had a boat and hit the water to fish. Fishing...ask before you go for some tips from locals! We didn't have much luck in that department. Definitely great memories made.

Very nice, accommodating, homey, and convenient place. It had everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We are a family of four but this lake house could fit 2 more family of our size! We enjoyed grilling and making smores every night by the fire. The outdoor area is very comfortable with beautiful lit torches to keep mosquitoes away. The walkway to our private dock is beautiful. Our kids enjoyed cannon balling into the river from the dock to cool off after a fun day of fishing. The drive to the boat dock was less than 5 minutes..very convenient.

The price is perfect for everything this house and location had to offer our family to create memories.

Great family vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was set up perfectly for our family of four. My husband and I enjoyed our morning coffee on the screened-in porch overlooking the beautiful lake. The kids enjoyed spending time in the downstairs "fun room" that includes a Wii and a basketball hoop. We spent our evenings playing games, doing puzzles, and watching DVDs, all of which are provided with the house.

The outside spaces are just as inviting. There is a cozy seating area with a porch swing at the top of the hill and a fire pit area farther down that overlooks the lake. We especially enjoyed hanging out at the dock and swimming in the lake. Our favorite excursion was Cub Run Cave which was a short 10-minute drive and full of breathtaking views.

I highly recommend this property!!

I can't say enough good things about this place. It's lovely, large, clean, well stocked and the lake is soooo warm. We went to Mammoth and Leitchfield Aquatic Center but the best times were grilling, swimming and playing at the house. My kids had a blast, it was a great vacation! Thanks so much!
