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, remodeled the downstairs bath to include a shower, and are working to have our back deck covered! 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

My wife Lisa and I 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!

Excellent Property, Excellent Owner

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family met at this cabin for Thanksgiving, and we were all very happy! It matched the photos, and was very comfortable.

The property was very clean and well-kept. It was kid-friendly, and even had a highchair. The owners were very attentive, and even supplied wood for a bonfire.

The nearby Dollar General store was handy, although we also enjoyed going into Scottsville to eat homestyle food at Earl G Dumplin's.

Great Property, Great Owners

  • 5 of 5

Our extended family stayed at this cabin over Thanksgiving, and we were all very pleased. The house was well-kept, very clean, and matched all of our expectations from the photos. The owners were very kind, and even dropped off wood for a bonfire. We would love to return in the summer, when we could get more use out of the deck, patio swing, and dock.

A Dollar General store nearby provides a handy alternative to longer drives into town. But - if you do drive in to Scottsville - I recommend a stop in the charming town square or some homestyle food at Earl G Dumplins.

Ahhhh-mazing Home Away From Home!

  • 5 of 5

Our family highly recommends this Lake House. This roomy house was stocked with every comfortable convenience our family needed for a wonderful getaway. The owners thought of everything to ensure an enjoyable stay- from the inviting decor to the plush bath towels. The spacious eat-in kitchen was perfect for all of our family's food prep, meals and a competitive game of monopoly. The 2 outside decks were great, one even has a Ping Pong table. Tom was friendly and attentive. You will be delighted with this place!

Looking for a scenic area…Here it is!

  • 5 of 5

The house is as shown in the pictures, beautiful and very clean with plenty of space. The deck and basement walkout overlooked the lake and trees. The kitchen has everything you might need! I needed a crockpot and could not find one, when the owner stopped by to light the pilot light on the gas fireplace (which was very nice on a cool fall weekend) I asked him if there was one the owner and 20 minutes later he brought me a crockpot! Our friends had a wonderful time at this vacation home and plan to return next year! Sunday morning we drove into Scottsville for delicious breakfast at Earl G Dumplin’s. Thanks for sharing your home and hospitality!

Great Labor Day Weekend!!!!

  • 5 of 5

The house was just amazing. Three levels and plenty of space. Stocked to the hilt with everything you need in a rental house for a wonderful weekend. Linens, Towels, Cooking utensils, and on and on. The Dock and water are so accessible. Right across from the state park. Our weather and weekend could not have been more perfect. The most impressive part of the rental was that any previous recommendation was done, fire pit, bottle opener, and on. Very responsive owners. Wow. Thanks for a great place to have a memorable weekend.

Great Home

  • 5 of 5

The home was clean and perfect for a large family, with lots of room to spread out. We really enjoyed having the dock access for our boat.
