Overview

About the property

You want to watch the sun rise or set? Both are superb from here!

You will find yourself in a little slice of heaven in the area that surrounds this quaint farm house!! Barren River Lake and State Park is just 10 miles away. Closer still is the charming town of Fountain Run, with it's hometown restaurants (home cooking and barbeque) and small town shops. Glasgow isn't far away with even more shopping and dining experiences! If you are coming to fish, Brownsford Boat Ramp is only 1 mile away. A short 45 minute drive will take you to Cave City where you can see Mammoth Cave, located on a beautiful state park. Cave City is also home to Funtown Mountain, great family fun just moments from state highway I-65! Kentucky Down Under isn't far from here either, another family attraction that will keep your family learning while on vacation!! Bowling Green, Ky is not too far as well, home of the world famous Corvette Museum. This is the only place in the world where Corvettes are built!! And Bowling Green has tons more shopping and the closest Starbucks! The nearest town is Scottsville, Ky, where you can find many restaurants, shopping and beautiful Mennonite/Amish communities for fresh vegetables, home made breads, plants, herbs and much more!!

The first floor of the farm house consists of the living room, one bedroom, bathroom, kitchen, 2 eating areas and laundry room. The second floor is a loft, on the south side is a full size bed and on the north side are two twin beds. All bed linens, bath towels and kitchen items are provided. Central heat and air, screens on the windows if you want the 'whole' experience!! Ceiling fans in every room on the first floor, excepting, of course, the bathroom! The house is set up with wireless internet, so you aren't that far away from the rest of the world!

There is enough parking for three vehicles. We do ask that you NOT smoke on the farm.

Rental fee includes taxes and cleaning fees.

Very comfortable

  • 3 of 5

Thanks, Andrea! We found your little farmhouse very comfortable. It met all our needs for a great experience watching and photographing the solar eclipse. Seeing your horses & goats was certainly a bonus.

Best of luck! Matt, Bobbie and Max

Peaceful stay in the country with horses greeting you with your morning coffee.

  • 4 of 5

The farmhouse was a great central location for us to pack a lot of activites in 4 days. We took an underground river tour, visited Mammoth Caves, swam at a nearby State Park, went to the Nashville Zoo, and went white water rafting. These activites were all 30 minutes to under 2 hours away. Andrea was a kind host who gave us good advice on places to visit and GREAT directions on how to get there. My teenage kids enjoyed it when the neighboring horses came to say hi at night. I cannot comment on the quality of the wifi because we were too busy doing a puzzle as a family or sitting on the porch as a family at the end of the day and visiting with the horses. We took long walks at night and enjoyed the mosquito-free evenings which we don't get in Northern Michigan. If you enjoy a peaceful farmhouse with nice animals to watch while you drink your coffee in the morning this is the place for you.

Down on the farm

  • 5 of 5

Well -equipped little farmhouse in beautiful KY horse country! I had a great summer here - 2 miles from Barren River Lake (kayak, boating, fishing) and 25 min to Amish/Mennonite markets. The owner was very friendly and helpful, giving us tips on the area and local goings-on. The dogs loved having horses and goats to gawk at.

A cozy and comfortable place to stay......nothing fancy but clean, cozy, and quiet.

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at the house and property in a 8 guy group for a fishing trip to Barren River lake. Plenty of room for 4 full size trucks and bass boats. Convenient to boat ramp. Clean house in a quiet area. Well stocked with supplies. Great shower and toilet which was a concern having 8 grown men in 1 house. We are planning a annual weekend to the lake and will be staying at the house. Thanks for putting up with us!!!

Kentucky Farmhouse

  • 4 of 5

My family of four plus dog enjoyed our stay at this country farmhouse near Barren River Lake State Resort Park. The beds were comfortable, the kitchen equipped with all the basics, and the shower warm with good water pressure. We enjoyed relaxing on the porch to see the horses, birds, and stars. A/C was cool on first floor but did not reach the second floor room. The kids ended up sleeping on the living room futon a couple nights. While there we traveled to Mammoth Cave which was just under an hour away for a cave tour (book in advance) and hiking. Also, don't miss nearby Kenny's Cheese House for their wonderful cheese made on site.

Owner's Response: I am very sorry about the second floor. But, Thanks to all the overtime i had to do with my job i was finally able to afford to have a hotel heat/AC unit installed.
