Overview

About the property

5 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Sleeps 12-24, Lake View & Access! Sister property next door!

New improvements for 2017! We have added a fire pit and remodeled the downstairs bath to include a shower. We have also added a sister property next door allowing us to accommodate an additional 10 guests. Please contact us if you have a large group and need the extra space! We can now accommodate groups up to 24 people! Our house is situated near the end of a private drive shared by 3 families. We like to call it "The Lake House". This 5 bedroom house (one of the bedrooms is a loft) will comfortably sleep up to 14 people although the rates are based on 12 occupants. Additional guests may stay at a rate of $25/guest per night. You will enjoy an amazing family room with comfy couches, a stone gas fireplace (used seasonally), and a high ceiling with large windows looking out over the lake. There is a well equipped kitchen and dining area with a table that will seat 10. From the kitchen you can walk out onto the upper deck and relax or operate the available gas grill. The master bedroom is on the main floor and has a king bed and a door that leads out onto the back deck. There is also a full bath on this main level. Upstairs is the loft with a queen size bed, a small bedroom with a twin size trundle bed, and another full bath. The lowest level in the home has two bedrooms, each with a twin over full bunk bed. There is a bathroom on this level with a shower. The laundry is located just off of one of the bedrooms. There is a family room on this level that has a game table, a sleeper sofa, a gas fireplace (used seasonally), and a 55" TV with BlueRay, and DVD.

There is WIFI available throughout the house and on the deck. There is a large upper deck overlooking the lake with plenty of space for everyone! There is a lower deck with a porch swing perfect for enjoying the beautiful view of the lake. The family room and one of the bedrooms open onto this lower deck.

The house is just a short walk from the lake down a set of easy stairs. There is dock access and the swimming and fishing is great from the dock too!

While staying at our house, you are just minutes from Bailey's Point Recreation area and public boat ramp, minutes from Barren River Lake State Park, and about 45 minutes from Bowling Green, KY. It would be easy to visit the National Corvette Museum, or Mammoth Caves.

This is a great place for families to enjoy some quiet, relaxing, fun times together. You will be staying in a fairly private area and although there are houses close by, this is a quiet neighborhood. If you are looking for peace and quiet, this is the place!

This lake is managed by the Army Corp. of Engineers. The water level is regulated to be at summer levels from May through the middle of October. From the middle of October until the first part of May, the lake is at its winter level and all private docks on the lake are unusable. During this time, the lake cannot be seen from the house. The lakebed is still a fun place to walk and there is a small creek that flows year round. During the summer, the lake level stays fairly constant unless there are heavy rains or extreme drought. Because of this, we cannot guarantee what the water level will be. Please ask questions if you have any.

About Tom Nazarenus

I, Tom, and my wife Lisa own this house with her parents John and Rita. We live not far away in Tennessee. Lisa and her parents have lived in the area for nearly 30 years, and I have lived in the area for about 8 years. Lisa and I have two children, a 5 year old, and a 3 year old so life is very exciting. Our entire family enjoys being near the lake, and so we are excited to share that experience with you through the use of our house!

Tom Nazarenus purchased this house in 2015

Why Tom Nazarenus chose Barren River Lake

We chose this property for several reasons. The quiet private drive, the quiet cove on the lake, and the direct lake access and lake views. We love to boat and ski so finding a place right on the water was very important to us. With small children, we wanted a place where we could enjoy the water with them without having to be far from home. This house was perfect for us!

What makes this house unique

We knew this was the house for us when we walked in and saw the amazing stone fireplace and high ceiling. The views of the lake from the living room and back deck are incredible. Enjoying a place like this by yourself is wonderful, but so is sharing it with your friends. This place is certainly large enough to share! There are two nice family rooms to enjoy. The main level has comfortable leather sofas, a fireplace (seasonally used), and large windows with great views of the lake. The second family room is set up for games and movies with a table, comfortable seating, a 55" TV with BlueRay/DVD, and a gas fireplace (used seasonally). The upper level deck provides room for your entire group and a place to cook out. The lower deck, although smaller, still provides lots of space and a porch swing to enjoy the great views of the lake. The house right next door is also available to rent allowing us to accommodate groups of up to 24 people! It has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms, a nice deck, and a great view of the lake as well! Come make some great memories with your family!

Great Weekend Getaway

  • 4 of 5

My husband & 3 of his HS friends wanted to get together for a weekend. They live in Ga, Mi, and Tn. We found this perfect lake house halfway between us all! The house was not the easiest to find & we found that the address provided wasn't the actual physical address of the house. The site lists 106 Old Port Oliver Rd but the house was actually on Lost Cove Ln which at first glance resembled a private drive. After a few circles we were able to locate it & were pleasantly impressed. One friend brought his boat & was easily able to launch it from the local ramp about 5 minutes away from the house. While the driveway only held 2 cars there was additional parking across the street. One thing I'll note is that the number of people able to sleep on the property description is a bit misleading. The house we stayed in as well as the house next door are both available for rent. The house we were in sleeps 12 - the house next door combined is where the number 23 comes in. I would make the recommendation to put a queen bed in the upstairs area where the twin/trundle bed is. The trundle doesn't raise up so one husband/wife team were not able to sleep 'together". All bedrooms had plenty of space and linens/bed coverings were nice. The master bedroom does not have an en suite bathroom and shares the main floor full bathroom. The kitchen is nicely equipped with everything you might need for all of your meals. The gas grill was super nice to have as we grilled out one night. There is plenty of patio furniture and the fire pit was a nice touch for s'mores. It would be nice if the lower level porch had a water resistance top so we could sit under there and watch the rain as a tropical storm passed through on day 1. We were also able to play bag toss in the quiet street in front of the house. I think there should be mention about the distance down to the lake. There are quite a few steps (97 to be exact from top to bottom) and the steepness coming up makes it quite cumbersome to carry bags/coolers/children. I don't see an elderly person making the distance if not in great health. The dock does not have any furniture so you'll need to bring down chairs. When we arrived there was a nice floating pad for the kids to play on but it was rolled up by someone and put away halfway through our second day. Kids had a blast on the boat though and were able to play in the shallow cove water - maybe 4 feet is the deepest we encountered. Owner was very accommodating & friendly!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us and for the feedback. The covered porch would be a great addition to the property and is on the list of improvements we hope to make this winter. Our plan is to cover the upper deck so that both the upper and lower decks will be dry! Our lake access is much better than many on this lake, but you are right, if your arms are full it certainly will tone your muscles! Again, we appreciate you sharing some of your summer with us!

Beautiful home with plenty of room for family & friends plus lakefront access with docks

  • 5 of 5

We could not have had a better time! My college buddies and I get together once a year to go fishing on lakes all across the country and this house on Barren River Lake in southern KY was the perfect spot for a weekend of fishing, swimming and cooking family style meals. With 4 bedrooms, a loft bedroom, and 3 full bathrooms, this was one of the most comfortable houses we've stayed in thus far. Also, it's maybe an hour away from the Bourbon Trail and another hour and a half from Nashville and the airport, making it a great spot for day trips and to get in and out from any part of the country. Super affordable too, you won't find a better deal in Kentucky - trust me, I've looked.

Great Place on the water for a group!

  • 5 of 5

We had our family from all over the US here and just had a great time fishing and seeing other parts around bowling green. It's a ways out from any big shopping area so keep that in mind on the drive in but it's beautiful there and plenty of room for us. I wouldn't want to cram 25 in there like the listing says but there's certainly tons of room. Having your own dock there was perfect for the bass boat and was surprised to see 4 slips, pretty impressive! Also, Tom was very responsive when there was a little issue with hot water and got it fixed right away. Would stay here again for sure!

Owner's Response: We are glad your family had a fun trip! Our house sleeps 14 people. Renting the second house right next door provides room for 10 more guests. You can bring more friends next time and still have plenty of room! Thanks for staying with us!

Wonderful Place for a Group Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Tom was very communicative leading up to our trip. The house was cozy and clean. The private dock was super convenient! We were able to send just a couple people to pick up pontoons at the state marina, then load our crew right from the house! The kitchen was well stocked for cooking needs. The dining area as was a little snug - we couldn't all eat together at the table, but we also had 14 people. Overall, a wonderful place and great weekend. We'll definitely consider using it again in the future!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for choosing to stay with us. We are glad your group had a wonderful time! As soon as our rental season slows down a little we are having our upper deck covered. This will really open up the kitchen/dining area to include the upper deck even when it is raining! We are really excited about this update and would be really happy to have you back again in the future!
