About the property

Private Lot On 3.7 Acres - 2,950 Sq. Ft. with nice lake views

You will love this very nice 5BR, 3BA lake front house on a peninsula with 3 coves on the property! Easy access to walk right down to the lake. One of the coves has a rock shelf perfect for sun bathing, watching the kids swim, catching up on your reading, etc. Private yard with mature trees sits on approx. 3.7 acres in a beautiful, relaxing setting. House is located extremely close to Rough River State Park and a marina so you can easily enjoy activities there. The house is 'America' themed on the inside. You'll enjoy the granite countertops in the kitchen and the open concept floor plan with spacious living room, dining room and sunroom. The natural stone outdoor fire pit circle is great for roasting hotdogs, making smores, telling campfire stories and singing, or enjoy relaxing on the nearby porch with ceiling fan. And of course, you can fire up the gas grill for the perfect dinner. Admire the beauty of the trees and the lake from the hammock in the back yard. Downstairs is set up for all the kids to enjoy their own space too with 4 sets of bunk beds (3 in one room and 1 in another bedroom) and a full bathroom with a shower. There is also a love seat, recliner, ottomans and a smart TV downstairs. Furnished with families in mind, a queen sized sleeper sofa upstairs also adds more flexibility for your group. In the 3 bedrooms upstairs there are queen sized beds. Also upstairs are two full bathrooms. If you can't quite get completely away from work, the house is set up with a desk and internet access. You'll also find plenty of TV's for your entertainment. The house is fully furnished with dishes, kitchen supplies, linens, towels, hair dryer, iron, ironing board and supplies of toilet paper, dish soap, laundry soap, paper towels, trash bags, etc. We are excited to share our lake house with you and are sure you will love the privacy and beauty of this place. It's a jewel on the lake in a very desired place! You can't get in a much better location for lake activities and privacy at the same time! The views of the lake are beautiful and the amount of lake frontage on our property is amazing. You can take a long walk along the shoreline, which all borders our property. We have fallen in love with this property, and we think you will too! Enjoy the outdoor dining set, lots of outdoor seating, an outdoor sofa down by the lake with a fire pit and a fire bowl on the back porch. We've even added some stone "creatures" by the rock fire pit on the side of the house for the little ones to enjoy. We've also added some outdoor games - a horse shoe pit, corn hole boards and ladder golf (or hillbilly golf as some call it)! If you do not see the days you want, please call me at 502-599-6790. We have some flexibility in scheduling and may be able to move dates around.

About Melanie Douglas

Tom and Melanie Douglas are both from Bardstown, KY and currently live in Shepherdsville, KY with their family. They both worked for others for 20 years and are now working for themselves in multiple businesses. They have been investing in real estate over the last several years to start working towards retirement. Maybe someday this will be the retirement home!

Melanie Douglas purchased this house in 2014

Why Melanie Douglas chose Falls of Rough

They chose this lake house because they loved the rock shelf in the first cove. It looked like the perfect place to relax, enjoy the lake, anchor a boat, or swim, all in the safety of the coves on this property. The land is a perfect combination of open area, to enjoy that family volleyball game or water balloon toss, or to wander into the shade trees and enjoy the breeze off of the lake. More than any property they looked at on the lake, this one had the perfect lake access with an easy walk down (and back up!). The inside of the home is clean, beautiful and updated. Visitors will enjoy this property and all it has to offer indoors and outdoors!

What makes this house unique

We looked at lots of properties on the lake and found this one to be the perfect combination of lake access, a beautiful back yard and a beautiful house. All in such a convenient location!

Lovely Home

  • 5 of 5

There were 8 of us and the house was wonderful for that number of people... It could have accommodated more... The kitchen was very well equipped, the house very clean, plenty of space and everything was working when we arrived. Beautiful surroundings, peaceful and quiet. I would recommend it to any group. She could use some new pillows, or bring your own, and a "real" ironing board.... I would go back in a heart beat...

very nice house !!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed here for 2 nights. We enjoyed the numerous fire pits and seating inside and out. We fished, we grilled, we played games at the large table and cooked an Italian dinner. We napped, read books and had lots of space for everyone to enjoy their time there. No boat dock was a con but some did swim some off the bank.

The house was decorated so nice with a Patriotic theme and a touch of Lake Life.

Thank you for letting us use your home at the lake.

Spacious and Quiet

  • 5 of 5

This nicely appointed home near the end of a long quiet road was the perfect spot for our large group (11 adults, 2 children). Everyone had enough privacy and there are enough bathrooms so that no one ever had to wait to use the facilities, even during the morning rush hour. We never ran out of hot water, although maybe that's because some of us showered before bed, and some showered in the morning. The bedrooms are roomy and the closets were large enough for all of our clothes. The beds were just OK. I would have preferred a mattress with more support. We found ourselves rolling to the middle of the bed, where there seemed to be a well-defined depression in the mattress. I didn't ask the other adults in our group how their beds were, but the mattress in the nautical themed bedroom could stand to be replaced, in my opinion. Another note. It took me several minutes to figure out how to get the cable TV stations to display on the TV in our bedroom. I probably should have called Melanie for a how-to, but I got it eventually, just make sure that the Cable Box icon is in the second position on the input menu, not at the top of the menu, then wait for it to come on. OK, enough of the griping. This really is a nice home. There are plenty of different seating areas, from a bright, vaulted-ceiling, entry area, with a fun swinging chair in it, to a basement TV/bunk-bed area, which the kids loved. The huge family-style dining table is fantastic. We all gathered around the table and ate together every evening, as we talked about the day and planned our activities for the next day. There is also plenty of outdoor seating in various locations around the property, so if the weather is nice, you should be able to find at least one "favorite spot". The kitchen is well supplied with everything you need to cook, from a bowl of cereal, to a 3 course meal. Outside is a big, beautiful yard that slopes gently down to the reservoir. The water is cool, clean, and inviting. Just beware, it drops off immediately, and the shoreline is mostly rock outcroppings. Perfect for diving though, if you first test the depths for hidden hazards. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay, and would have stayed longer if it hadn't already been booked for the days immediately following our days. Melanie was prompt with her replies by text, and we experienced no problems.
