In spring and summer/high pool Little River is a fisherman's dream; you can fish from the dock or shore. Springtime is particularly good bass and crappie fishing in our lake location. If you are the people-watcher type, you will enjoy spotting the fishing boats float by. The more adventurous will want to explore the coves, islands, and shoreline for excitement. 4 kayaks are available for your use that hold a total of 6 people.

We are just a short distance from I-24 which makes it easy to navigate to all the fun spots. Leisure Lakehouse offers easy access to marinas, Lake Barkley State Park, Land Between the Lakes, and Kentucky Lake. Antiquing in friendly Cadiz is a fun past-time, and restaurants can be found throughout the lake area. Land Between the Lakes is a family must-see with the Elk and Bison Prairie, eagle tours at the Nature Station, the Planetarium, The Homeplace (a 19th century working farm), and numerous hiking and off-road trails.There is so much to see and do that you will want to spend time exploring the many attractions, all within a short drive. If you are in the mood for music and city fun, Nashville is only a 1.5 hour drive.

Leisure Lakehouse is located on a dead end large 3-lot point with a private circular driveway and a 2 car garage. Part of the property butts up to thickly wooded government property. It's from here that you will spot deer and wild turkeys venturing out into the open grassy meadow. There is plenty of parking for vehicles, boats, and RVs. The u-shaped drive makes for easy in and out access when pulling trailers.

The house sleeps 12 total. The master bedroom, located on the main floor, has awesome views of the lake and trees that let you enjoy the outdoors and wildlife while still lying in bed. The master bedroom also opens up to the deck for a fresh morning peek of the sunrise and the strolling waterfowl. Some mornings you will sight a few deer or a flock of turkeys, and the egrets and herons are always at the water's edge.

Upstairs, the spacious landing joins 2 more bedrooms separated by a full bath. The smaller bedroom makes a wonderful kids' room, with 2 sets of bunk beds and 3 game chairs. The larger bedroom has 2 queen beds and a small sleeper sofa. Both bedrooms have beautiful views of the lake.

Bdr 1 -King bed, Twin daybed, Twin trundle

About Thea and Bill, 951-551-4760, 951-553-6275, leisurelakehouse@gmail.com

We are looking forward to retirement on Lake Barkley. We have a few years to go, but we decided to try the leisure life a couple of weeks out of the year. As working folks, we don't get as much time to enjoy the property as we would like.

Thea and Bill, 951-551-4760, 951-553-6275, leisurelakehouse@gmail.com purchased this house in 2014

Why Thea and Bill, 951-551-4760, 951-553-6275, leisurelakehouse@gmail.com chose Kentucky

We purchased Leisure Lakehouse in Spring of 2014. Although we have family a couple of hours north, we are just getting to know the Lake area. We wanted a retirement home in a resort-like setting that was close enough for family gatherings. This spacious home and property is perfectly situated for a large number of people to have a great deal of fun. We wanted a place that was private and peaceful, but close enough to amenities and friendly faces.

What makes this house unique

When we first saw this place, there was a big owl sitting in a tree off the deck. We knew it was a good sign. On that same day, we were awed by the multitude and variety of birds and jumping fish. This house is unique with its huge deck that puts you face to face with the singing birds in the trees. We enjoy watching the ducks and herons take their morning stroll as we sip cups of coffee. In evenings, we like to grill something juicy and watch the fading sunlight play on the water.

The master bedroom is a favorite of ours for its ample space and large windows. The views are magnificent and calming. What a great way to wake up in the morning. Perhaps that's why we named our house the Leisure Lakehouse. We find that when we are here, all the stress dissipates. It is a terrific vacation spot, and for us it will be the ultimate retirement location.

Beautiful house on the lake

  • 5 of 5

The house was amazing! It was beautifully decorated and had everything you could possibly need. We had a great time with the kayaks- a new experience for a couple of us. We rented a pontoon at the Eddy Creek Marina near by- had a great time out on the lake. The grandkids loved the room with 2 bunkbeds- it was their room! We had a little racoon visit every evening.

It was definitely worth the money. Just wish we could have caught more fish but it was so hot and the fish weren't biting.

Wonderfully peaceful location and extremely comfortable accommodations for all!

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Thea thank you very much for the opportunity for my family to stay at your home. We had a great time ... The house was extremely comfortable and wonderfully appointed .. Everything we needed was there .. The grandkids loved the bunk bedroom!! And all the adults enjoyed the kayaking and spending a couple of evenings around the fire pit making smores and cooling off with some beverages. A dinner trip to Patti's Restaurant in Grand Rivers was a treat enjoyed by all and another trip to LBL to see the Elk and Bison was amazing!! ... The kids and adults REALLY enjoyed that excursion. Again, thank you.

Jerry Mills and Family!

Great House

  • 5 of 5

Our family has rented a few houses for vacation before and they all were fine but nothing to really write a review for. The Leisure Lakehouse was by far the best house we have ever stayed in. The kitchen has everything you need and then some to cook your meals. We sleep with fans in our room at home and it was a nice touch to have them available at the house. Our stay was during some unusually warm weather and the air conditioning worked wonderfully especially in the upstairs rooms. The porch is great and the property is just like the pictures. We are not big water sports people but we did enjoy kayaking around the island. The house is very quite and isolated which was relaxing. When we first pulled into the driveway we were stared down by a deer in the side yard. We soon found out why as the baby deer soon came out of the woods to be by it's mother. The owners are quick to respond to any e-mail questions. Overall a great experience and if we are ever in the area again for vacation we will definitely stay here!

Owner's Response: Thanks for the kind words. We like fans too! Maybe that's why we have a ceiling fan in every room. We also have several box fans (the ones you mentioned) stored in the closets. Those are nice to plug in outside on the deck to keep cool in the warmer season. Hope to see you again.

Lake Barkley water levels fluctuate throughout the seasons. As a controlled lake, the water is higher in summer than winter. The water level around our dock during spring/summer pool is about 3-5 feet. Shallow draft boats are advisable if you plan to secure your boat to the dock. The water level drops significantly in the off season. This lower water level does make for some fantastic wildlife sightings, including lots of deer and wild turkeys!
