About Barry Vance

My husband and I went to school in Adair Co KY but it wasn't until years later that we found each other. We got married in June 2010. We have 6 children and 2 grandchildren with one more on the way. We currently live in White House TN

Barry Vance purchased this lodge in 2005

Why Barry Vance chose Kentucky

This was my husbands dream home. It took 11 months to build and he used several trees from the property for the building material. One of the bedrooms is completely cedar as well as the stairs going up to the bedrooms. He used actual tree trunks as supports for the landing and for the fireplace mantel.

What makes this lodge unique

stone, wood burning fireplace, 22 ft ceiling in the great room, exquisite sunset while sitting on the back porch or relaxing by the pool. A very tranquil, peaceful place to come and relax! I'm sure you will love being here as much as we do!

Soothing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The serenity of this cabin will definitely bring us back! It is secluded, peaceful, clean and spacious. The kitchen is well stocked and the dining room table accommodates 12 people easily. Instant response time from the owner made booking and the trip itself trouble-free and therefore more enjoyable. Leaving was the hardest part of our mini vacation.

Super nice getaway

  • 4 of 5

As a large group of women getting away from it all, this place was just great! It had plenty of beds so just about everyone had their own bed - we appreciate not having to share. The kitchen was well equipped and the fireplace wonderful (thanks for providing wood). We had to do a little rearranging to make enough seating to hang out by the fire but it turned out to be very comfortable. Thanks to Barry and Tanna for their communications and putting up with our many questions!

Time with Family

  • 5 of 5

We had a large group of extended family in for a wedding in the area. The cabin provided just what we needed: a place for us to spread out, relax, and enjoy being together. We were so glad that we found it! It was clean and convenient. We would all recommend this house.

Family Fall Break

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was comfortable for all four families, 10 kids and 8 adults. The location is in the country and it has a very relaxing atmosphere. Lots of privacy! The kids loved the pool in the backyard even though the water is a bit chilly this time of year. The grill was a nice resource for a couple of our meals. The kitchen/living room had plenty of space. The large dinning table was a big hit for the kids, all getting to set together. Barry was very friendly and easy to work with on the dates. We will come back, hopefully in warmer weather.

So quiet and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house in July 2016 for a family get together. There were 14 of us and we never felt crowded. The kids loved the pool and all the property to play on. Barry was fantastic with any questions we had and responded right away when I left a message. The house was clean and stocked with plenty of towels. I would not hesitate to recommend this house to others.

Christmas in Kentucky

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight adults and four children enjoyed a wonderful Christmas at Lucas Lodge last year. The country location is perfect if you want to get away from the hustle and bustle. The home is at the end of a long driveway and there's nothing around it but quiet. Inside, the house is warm and rustic, complete with all wood trim and beams from the surrounding property.

When we arrived a Christmas tree was set up and the home was clean and ready for visitors. There was ample room for us and everyone had plenty of space to spread out, play games, watch TV or walk or run on the property. The owners even had the fridge stocked with bottled water when we arrived! If I had to be picky, some trash had blown up into the backyard near the pool that needed to be picked up and there was a leaky pipe in the upstairs bathroom sink, but neither of those were issues that affected our stay.

Barren River Lake State Park is less than five minutes away for all outdoor activity like golf, hiking, running and many other activities. Glasgow is close for any supplies that you need or restaurants that you want. Highly recommend this cabin!
