A great place to visit with the family to engage in an educational journey of the regions trout.

About Stephanie

Our family has been coming to Clifty Creek at Lake Cumberland since the 70's. We had such great memories of our childhood at the lake and we wanted to make great memories with our kids ... a girl, 2 boys, 2 golden retrievers and 1 chocolate lab. In 2004, our family had the opportunity to purchase this cabin. Since then there has been very few weekends that we have not been at the cabin. It is such a special place no matter if its summer weekends, holidays, fall or snowing winter nights. We hope you enjoy this cabin and your time there as much as we have through the years.

Stephanie purchased this cabin in 2004

Beautiful views, Wonderful owner, incredible porch, comfy beds

  • 5 of 5

No pictures can or will do justice to this quaint lake house. It was one of our best vacation destinations because it had everything, lacked nothing! Every evening we loved the gigantic screened in porch, just relaxing and playing games with the kids. Every morning we enjoyed sunrises from the dock. House was CLEAN, no old food left in fridge or cupboards. We brought our boat and the boat ramp was great. Bathroom is obviously newly remodeled and looked great!

Going into this I was worried about the lack of Internet/Cable but quite honestly there is so much to do during the day that we came home exhausted. We would end our days having dinner on that gorgeous screened in deck and playing a few of the owner supplied games. It was so nice to be away from the TV and engage each other for a change.

Will return without a doubt, for longer next visit!

Tips to future renters:

Bring some candles for the screened in deck. It's too fun to not be out there and enjoy the quiet evenings playing games or talking by candle light.

They tell you which dock is theirs by a dock number but the numbers are only visible if you're standing on the shore or on the dock itself. The numbers you see from the water are not the right numbers.

If you have a boat trailer of any size, there is plenty of trailer parking along the boat ramp road. Don't waste your time fighting to fit it in the small spot next to the house. Bring some wheel chocks as it's on an incline.

The owner says there's limited cell-data service but our sprint phones had data service good enough to watch youtube and get work email.

Owner's Response: Hi James, Thank you so much for the review of our cabin. It is nice to get feedback on what the people thing of our cabin. We have spent some great times with our kids on that porch playing games and enjoying the water. It is nice when the kids look up from their phones to enjoy their surroundings. We have some upgrades planned for the cabin that I think you will appreciate. Keep us in mind when you travel to Lake Cumberland next time. We would love to have you stay with us again.' All the Best, Stephanie

Great Location. Nice Home.

  • 4 of 5

The place was clean and comfortable with everything we needed. The only thing is that the fireplace has been used so the den area smelled of wet soot. Other than that, it was awesome. The screened porch was fantastic.

Fun stay. Right on the lake which is a hard find when renting a cottage on Cumberland ! 15 minutes from Wolf Creek dam which is an excellent fishery ! A lot of stuff to do there including visiting the trout hatchery . This cottage is apart of a little community of cottages. All beautiful and host wonderful neighbors. This cottage in particular is one of the closest to the lake and dock. Fun stay , will be back. Thank you

Nothing but good things to say about this place!

  • 5 of 5

This place is in a perfect location and the boat ramp and slip were a huge plus. The house had all the amenities you could ever want, including numerous kitchen utensils/supplies. It was very clean and comfortable. We used the screened-in outdoor porch every night and it was very relaxing. The neighborhood is very quiet and added to our relaxation after a day on the water. My wife is terrified of spiders and bugs in general, and we found absolutely none in the home (not sure how this happened in the middle of the woods!). Communication with the owner was excellent and we would definitely stay here again!

If you truly wish to unplug...this the place. I thought I would go nuts without internet or TV cable...but we did fine. It’s definitely a place to re-connect. Loved the screened in area.

Lake Cumberland is 101 miles long and is one of the largest man-made lakes in the nation. Each year millions of visitors travel from all over the United States to come to the Lake Cumberland area to enjoy the rugged beauty of its 63,000 surface acres and 1,255 miles of wooded shoreline. Lake Cumberland touches several counties in southern Kentucky and ranks 9th in the US in size. Lake Cumberland has a capacity of 6.1 million acres of water, enough to cover the entire state of Kentucky with 3 inches of water. That’s roughly 1.9 trillion gallons of water.

Our Clifty Creek Cabin, is on Central time zone and is 5 minutes by water to Jamestown & State Docks. Great location. Tucked back up in Clifty Creek, no through boat traffic.
