LEISURE LAKEHOUSE on Lake Barkley

This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath lake house has a peaceful and private setting with 180 degree views of water. See the sun rise and set from the extensive wrap-around deck. The large 2.5 acre point lot gives you plenty of space to unwind to the sights and sounds of nature. The private dock is easily accessible with no steps.

AMENITIES:

- Private dock extends to 50 feet with bench and ladder.

- Outdoor fire pit between house and dock.

- Indoor fireplace operates with gas logs.

- The upstairs is on a separate heating/cooling system with its own thermostat. The upstairs level does not get too warm (as with so many other 2 story homes).

- Upstairs bathroom totally remodeled with new vanity and tile flooring.

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 on Lake Barkley. 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 Cadiz

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.

Notes:
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!

The house was fabulous. There was no lake.

  • 3 of 5

The house was wonderful. It had all the amenities. It had a great deck and lots of room. Unfortunately there was no lake to speak of. The lake had dried up. We only had mud and very little water. The owner said the water varied but the dock was not even connected to the lake from the water being so low.

Owner's Response: We take great pride in the cleanliness of the house and property, and we are happy to stock the kitchen and bathroom with amenities that make a stay more comfortable. Other outdoor amenities within our control are also available for our guests, including an outdoor Weber grill that includes propane, a fire pit with plenty of firewood, and kayaks for exploring the lake when the season permits. We do wish we could control the weather and the Army Corp of Engineers that dictate the water levels. Sadly, these are not things that any property owner can control. This year, the Army Corp lowered the lake levels more than usual for this time of year leaving many home owners disappointed with the lack of water.

Peaceful serenity

  • 4 of 5

House was great. Kitchen was fully stocked with everything you could wish for. Sitting on the deck or the dock allowed you to completely disengage from the outside world. Only thing we were unaware of was the fact that at this time of year the water level is dropped. It made getting into and keeping the kayaks going more of a challenge but not impossible. If you don't like mud you are out of luck, go before Labor Day. Very relaxing, Bill & Thea were very responsive to any messages I sent before the rental started.

Owner's Response: We love how peaceful our area of the lake is! We wish we could somehow control the lake level, but this is entirely up to the Army Corp of Engineers. Generally they begin to lower Barkley Lake and Kentucky Lake in late summer.

Beautiful vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful vacation home, very clean and comfortable. Modern furniture, appliances and decorations. The wrap around deck was perfect for our 3 family Labor Day weekend get together. The kitchen had plenty of room, the beds were very comfortable and the dead end road made us feel like we were the only ones around for miles. Even though the lake is to low this time of year to bring our boats there, the marina is only a 15 minute drive. We didn't have time to take the kayaks out, but it was a nice option. There is a nice fire pit that we sat around and cooked s'mores, and the deck is large enough that we could play corn hole up there!

Thea & Bill were very easy to communicate with and answered all my emails almost immediately. Great place to rent.

Wonderful Home

  • 5 of 5

We had a lovely stay at Leisure Lakehouse. The home was as described and more! Very well maintained and stocked with everything you could possibly need. Plenty of space for our family of seven to spread out and lots of quiet space outside to relax and for kids to play. The water level was a little low for fishing off the dock, but we knew that might be a possibility, so instead we used the kayaks provided by the owners for some fun on the water! Great home!

Beautiful home and relaxing environment! Great place to get away from it all and enjoy nature!

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved your home! It was so spacious inside and out. The use of the kayaks was a HUGE plus! We enjoyed a campfire one evening, fishing off of the private pier and watching the deer graze every morning and evening. Thank you so much for sharing your place with us!

Amazing!!

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for a family get away. Very clean, spacious, and well appointed. Loved the limited WiFi which encouraged the kids to get back to nature. The grounds are spectacular with great views of the lake at every turn. I give it an absolute thumbs up!
