Welcome to Cooper's Cottage at beautiful Barren River Lake, Kentucky. This beautiful cottage is a single family residence with a second-story breakfast nook and deck. Our lakehouse cottage offers breathtaking views of the water, a location merely two miles from Bailey's Point campground, dock, and recreation area; as well as being convenient to Barren River State Park, gas stations, and the best fried catfish in the south.
The cottage is a three bedroom, two bath home, and a full kitchen including a microwave, dishes, pots, and pans. Everything to make your vacation easy and economical. The house sports two queen-size beds, and a full bed, as well as a breakfast nook that can be used for a sleeping area. The house is approximately 1600 square feet so it provides plenty of room for a family or couples looking to share a vacation rental. The kitchen is fully stocked with pots, pans, microwave, stove, and a refrigerator.
We request a minimum of a two night stay and a three night stay on holiday weekends. If you book six nights, you will get the seventh night free. We require a 25% deposit on all bookings and have a 15 day cancellation policy. Minimum rental age of 25. No Pets, No Smoking, No Illegal Substances Allowed.
Close to hiking, biking, fishing, hunting, wild-life viewing, swimming, water-skiing, knee-boarding, wake-boarding, jet-skiing, tubing, and boating. Bailey's Point a short two mile drive also hosts camping, has children's playgrounds, concessions, and sponsors movies nights during the summer season.
In addition, the lakehouse is merely 30 minutes from Bowling Green, Kentucky home of the National Corvette Museum and Plant. We are less than an hour from Kentucky Down Under and Mammoth Cave National Park, which offers horseback riding, spelunking, and various other sightseeing activities.
The lakehouse is also close to Harper's Restaurant - offering what we think is the BEST fried catfish in the south, a convenient store, gas stations, and grocery store, and we are happy to provide directions to any of these activities.

What a beautiful view! It was a little chilly to be out on the deck, so we moved the kitchen table in front of deck doors to enjoy the view. This was a perfect spot for us - close to family, room for all of us to be comfortable. Very clean! We will definitely return!
Overall stay was great and nice area! Only issue is there were too many branches and trees covering the view to the beautiful lake and scenery.
This house is interesting. Some things are good and others are in need of improvement. The best thing is that it was easy to work with the owners. The bedrooms were good. The living room was nice. The kitchen was good after we got some cooking spray. I suppose that was our fault but I thought there would already be some. There was some at the other houses we have stayed at. The view of the lake was nice. I loved looking at the stars. There are no hand towels. The bathtub/ showers are very slick. All of this could be fixed with $100 and 1 hour. All in all, we had fun.
Positives: Booking and paying for the rental home was easy. It was easy to contact the owner prior to staying. Nice having a washer and dryer.
Negatives: Having our kids in the rental property posed a lot of issues. Safety Issues: Exposed outlets-bathroom, broken Coffee table with protruding hinges, broken thresholds on flooring creating trip hazards, vent cover for furnace not secured down to floor causing trip hazard, overall poor workmanship on repairs to home. Cleanliness: old Food throughout the furniture covers, floors not swept throughout home, Old chips/food debris in bowl on top of frig., Some drinking glasses had old food residue on them, frig inside shelf broken, One bedroom sheets looked as if they were not washed. An advertising feature in the paperwork of home was to open windows to get a fresh breeze through house - all the windows had dozens of dead lady bugs on window sills and when we opened the window, they blew throughout the house - very disgusting. Broken screens on windows, broken tiles in bathroom as well as missing grout and terrible workmanship on home repairs. Oven had old food spilled and baked on the bottom of oven. There is no access to Lake from Cottage - cottage is on steep cliff down to water, that was not explained in the description. The closest small town is a 20 minute drive (Very remote location). In general - I would never rent this home again nor would I recommend it to anyone for rent. To make this home an acceptable rental property on VRBO, many "Professional" repairs should be done to get things up to code and a more professional cleaning crew should deep clean the home. This is the 2nd time we have rented a home through VRBO - the first home was exceptional, but for this home the basic standard of cleanliness/safety (that a renter should expect) was not met.
Great location to local boat ramps. Terrific views of the lake. A lot of parking area for trucks and boats.
We had a great time at this house the lake view at night was awesome, the rooms were very cozy and the upstairs balcony has an amazing view of lake.
We loved staying here! We needed a place with 3 bedrooms to stay close to family in Scottsville farm area, and this was closer and much more comfortable than a hotel. The lake view from the kitchen patio door and deck is just gorgeous.
The place was spotless, and had dish soap, toiletries, even laundry detergent for the washer dryer. There was even some coffee in the cabinet, which was great since we got in rather late at night and didn't go shopping til the next day. We appreciated that so left the coffee we bought and didn't use for the next family.
We drove into Scottsville for groceries, but found there is a Dollar General right at 252 and 31E that is much closer.
One of the 3 bedrooms is a tandem, but that works fine for families.
The owner responded immediately to our text questions.
We will definitely stay at Cooper's Cottage again!
