About Jim & Jeanette Bowman
We recently purchased this cabin. Have lived down the road from it for 8 years. We love it here next to the lake that we just felt the need to share. Jim's day job is construction has added his touch of his carpentry skills in the cabin. Of course I'll keep him busy with improvements. I'm a Yorkshire Terrier breeder, which keeps me on my toes, landscaper, weed eating expert and Jims "Go-For."
Jim & Jeanette Bowman purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Jim & Jeanette Bowman chose London
Perfect place to spend alone time w/your sweetie, escape from your busy life, cell phones and the kiddos.☺
What makes this Cabin unique
Our dock is 1 of the closet to the water. We are at the end of a cove that leads into the main part of the lake.

Needs to be listed as fisherman's cottage
The owner was very sweet and I feel bad not giving the cottage higher marks, but I wish i had been warned about what we were getting into. It needed a good deep cleaning. Upon first entering it seemed clean enough but I believe it only had quick surface cleaning and was not up to par with comparable VRBO cottages. Examples: Mouse visited each night, Snail crawling up closet door, night-crawlers left in fridge with some of the dirt and sticky stuff left on the bottom shelf, half used stick of butter outdated mayo etc. on shelf, blankets smell like wet dog with air freshner sprayed to cover it up, the bed is not supported in the front and tips everytime you sit on the front half. I had informed the owner that our 2 adult children and granddaughter would be spending the last night with us and asked if we should bring extra linens. She thought there would be plenty. We ended up having only one extra sheet and the dog smelling blankets. The lane was very steep and washed out. Our Honda CRV bottomed out and spun as we drove out. The only way to get out to the lake is to bring your own boat, but you might find it difficult to get it down the hill into the water. there is a marina but they don't rent boats. My husband did enjoy fishing off the dock. The shore area is overgrown and too steep from which to fish. The cottage would be an ok place for fishermen who don't mind roughing it, but it needs to be listed as such
Perfect location to meet up with family from different states. Nice, quiet, and peaceful.
Great Cabin with Private Dock
This cabin is as advertised. Its cozy and was clean. They were great hosts. Will definitely return.

Perfect get away Stay!
Jeanette is the best hostess you could ask for! The cabin is perfect, beautiful inside & cute decor - the porch is Amazing - we enjoyed the dock, just lounging and catching some rays! Our purpose was to visit an ATV park that was a good 18 miles away, this place made it all worth the driving! An awesome little place to disconnect & relax! Thank You Jim & Jeanette !!! Yep
What an amazing place!
We really enjoyed our stay in London! The whole property was beyond gorgeous, we spent a lot of our time talking about how we'd like to own a place like this someday. The walk down to the water was so nice and relaxing and just being able to sit and relax, taking in the views was just what we wanted. The place was very clean and comfortable, we felt right at home. The TV has way more channels than we do back at home too so that was a fun little treat after a long day of hiking and exploring Kentucky. We hope to book here again, we loved our stay!
Thanks you two.
So glad you had an awesome time.
Come back when the weather's warm...so much more to do.
Hope to see you again😊
