About Joe & Marilyn Thornton

Joe ran a Auto Body Shop for several years, then worked on farm equipment & machinery for several years, is retired and keep our rentals looking good on outside. Marilyn worked for several years for KY Farm Bureau & then local Cable company for 22 years, now retired and enjoys keeping the rentals looking good and looking for something new to put in them or hang on wall.

We have 2 daughters and 3 grandsons, you will see their pictures if you visit either of the rentals. We are proud of our family.

Joe & Marilyn Thornton purchased this cabin in 2004

Why Joe & Marilyn Thornton chose Kentucky

We were looking for a camper to be able to stay at the lake, our Grandson saw the cabin for sale on TV, he came over and couldn't wait until we went out to see it, we loved it and knew it was for us at first sight. This was our lake house, we never thought of renting it until we purchased the Cottage next door, when we started renting The Cottage we had an overflow so we decided to rent The Cabin. We have never been sorry, we have met the nicest folks and it brings in extra income since we are retired.

What makes this cabin unique

Very quiet, peaceful and so relaxing.

When we walked in the door it was so much more than we expected! It was beautifully decorated and so clean and spacious. We spent a lot of our time enjoying the peace and quiet of the cabin. We visited the Land Between the Lakes, Civil War battle grounds, shopped in Murrray. Many other things to see and do nearby. The Sirloin Stockade is a great restaurant. We would recommend this cabin for anybody. Would like to return.

Awesome Cabin

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome cabin and so are the owners. If you need to get away and enjoy some piece and quiet with the luxury of home this is the place. The cabin is so cozy and comfortable. The lake is so close you can hear the boats on the water. This place is truly a hidden jem so glad I found it and would suggest this cabin to anyone looking to relax and enjoy the lake.

Amazing cabin!!

Marylin was extremely nice and made sure we had everything we needed. The cabin was absolutely beautiful and cozy. My boyfriend and I went there for a break from the world, and that is exactly what we got. The people that live around there are also very nice and hospitable. I would recommend this cabin to anyone. A full 5 stars!

wonderful surprise

  • 5 of 5

I made reservations for my dad and stepmom for this cabin for their anniversary. They were hesitant as they headed to their unseen destination. When they arrived, they were so excited and loved the cabin! It was so comfortable and the owners were so friendly. They really enjoyed their stay and would definitely go again. Since they do not use computers, they insisted I write this review and share their experience....They gave it 5 stars!!!

Owner's Response: Thank you for sending a review for you father, they were so cute and we appreciate them spending their anniversary at The Cabin, I believe they invited another family member to drive about an hour to see it, I hope they will come again, we enjoyed meeting them. I mailed them a copy of picture that I made, I hope they enjoyed it. Joe & Marilyn

Best Time!

My Buddy and I were wanting to have a fishing weekend and came across this place and we absolutely loved it! The owner was very nice and the place was excellent. Great fishing on the lake and it was nice to have a golf cart provided for us to use. We will be going back very soon with the wife and kids! God bless
