About Phyllis Johnson

We loved sharing our home (Edgewater Retreat) . Our guest said that they loved our home and enjoyed working with us. They were not happy because it stayed booked all the time. They kept wanting time that we didn't have open. This home Driftwood came open and was near our other one. So we took it on in order to try to help our guest that wanted to come back for a visit.

We are so excited with Driftwood.

We just love meeting and sharing our homes with our guest.

Its nice to help make family memories .

Phyllis Johnson purchased this house in 2014

Why Phyllis Johnson chose Kentucky

Driftwood is a nice size home and near our home Edgewater Retreat. It sits on the water so you have easy access to the water. Its secluded and makes for a great get away.

Most of our guest come and meet up with other family members to have

a reunion . So with the size of Driftwood it works very well.

Beautiful property!

This house was perfect for our marriage retreat. All of the bedrooms were beautifully decorated and the house in general very clean. The owner was great to work with. I love the scenery and privacy of this place. I highly recommend this place if your looking for a get away with a little privacy.

Our family of 8 adults and 6 children recently spent time at the Driftwood Retreat. This is a lovely home which is very nicely decorated. More than an ample supply of linens for all, comfortable beds, and a kitchen stocked with everything you might need and enough space to accommodate all of us without anyone being crowded?That was a huge plus for us. There were also plenty of nice dishes, silverware and the usual appliances. The pool/ping pong table downstairs was great for the kids. Everything was very clean! I would not hesitate to recommend this house. ❤️

A negative point is the path going down the hill to the water and the boat dock. It was not an easy walk down or back up. There is a path that you can drive down, but that was a little tricky too. The house is great, but the path is not.

We weren't sure how much weight the upper deck would accommodate, so we mostly used the lower deck which was equally nice. We did enjoy seeing all the deer roaming around!

This was our second year at Edgewater. Everyone had such a wonderful time last year we chose to do it again. The accomodations have always been great. We had some rain on this trip but there is plenty of activities in the house. Phyllis takes the time to think of all ages and groups to accommodate everyone. Thank you so much Phyllis.

Stop looking! You've found your vacation get-a-way!

The review's of Driftwood Retreat couldn't have been more spot on. Anything we needed for our stay was right at our fingertips. Fully stocked kitchen made mealtime so easy. Linen closet FULL of clean , white washcloths and towels. We had 14 folks showering every morning and never ran out of HOT water. Several of our group fished the boat dock daily, and caught a variety of fish. Crappie, small mouth bass, catfish, and the popular bluegill were abundant. We rented a 36ft pontoon on Saturday from the Marina and brought it back to the Driftwood to refill our coolers. Phyllis gets it right when she says "Your family fun begins here" Thank you again.

Gorgeous home and property

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at driftwood. It was very comfortable and clean. We do annual family vacation every year and this was by far the most kid-friendly rental we have had. Phyllis was great and although we appreciated privacy she was responsive when we needed her. Would defenitely have stayed longer if we could have! RELAXING

Treasured memories made here

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, beautiful location. We brought our boat and spent every day in the water. Our only regret is that we could not stay longer! The house, as others have stated, is so well equipped I can't imagine wanting for anything. I would suggest shopping for food and paper products prior to arriving. While the town of Cadiz is very quaint and offers many thrift, antique and vintage stores you will find only small grocery stores with limited selection and a little pricey.
