Overview

About the property

400 sq. ft. two room suite , located right on lake in Country Villa.

Welcome to "Thee Hidden Pearl" at Barren River Lake, Kentucky, it has a very private 400 sq. ft. suite, with Fantastic view overlooking the lake, located merely six miles from Beaver Creek boat ramp with campground, dock, and Beach area; as well as being convenient to Barren River State Park, and gas stations. Be sure to bring your camera along, for watching the bald eagles fly around the lake provide many prime opportunities for snapshots. 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 heavy rains or extreme drought. Because of this, we cannot guarantee what the water level will be. Please ask questions if you have any.

Imagine drinking your morning coffee on the front porch overlooking the lake on the country ridge, just before heading off for a morning hike or a quick 18 holes at the State Park. After spending your afternoon on a leisurely boat ride or taking an adrenaline-filled wake-boarding trip, park your boat on the private dock located just a short distance across the yard from the house, ending with a stunning sunset on the deck with your special someone. Regardless of how you spend your time during your stay, This vacation rental will keep you coming back again and again!

Suite features 1 bedroom with Queen bed, large sitting room with sectional sofa and recliner. Bath with Jacuzzi and separate shower. Small kitchenette with microwave, small refrigerator and Keurig coffee pot. Large private deck with grill a few yards from dock excess. Large flat screen TV. Direct-TV, and a DVD library

Why Janice Hall chose Barren River Lake

My father bought the farm for investment in 1973. He knew my husband and I wanted to live on the lake. He allowed me to pick the best spot, which is five acres, surrounded by government land and the lake on three sides. I designed and built the house.

What makes this apartment unique

I wanted to share and decided to make it possible for others to come, too. Therefore this is partly why I am renting. I will make you feel at home and like family. This I have done to a many in the past. So many people have said they feel such peace as soon as they enter the open gate entrance to my property. It's been said it truly is a hidden pearl.

I look forward to seeing you too.

Peaceful nature retreat

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed at Jan's "hideout" for a long weekend. The grounds are so beautiful surrounded by trees with a view if the lake. There is a porch swing available to sit a spell and enjoy the natural beauty, the lake view and have a cookout or bond fire if you want. The apartment is equipped as a home away from home. Jan has thought of everything you might need to feel welcome and comfortable for one night or a week. It is close to Glasgow if you want to find a restaurant or visit the Barren Lake State Resort or Mammoth Cave you are only a short drive away. We did Diamond Cavern, trails at Barren Lake and two cave tours in Mommith cave. It was great to come back and relax in the hot tub. Jan is great and the hospitality was top notch!

Nice Place

  • 4 of 5

Nice Place Janice was very helpful.. only thing is in the description of the property need to clarify that when the water level of the lake is low ( during winter times) there is no view of the lake whatsoever the view consists of a large muddy area with a creek running through it.

Beautiful, Peaceful and very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed here to get away for the weekend. We had a great time. Everything was better than expected! Very peaceful, beautiful and perfect in every way! Janice went above and beyond to make us feel at home while giving us complete privacy! We arrived with a bowl of fruit and donuts waiting on us as well! Pictures don't do this place justice!!
