  • Great hosts, but property needed maintenance


    Our hosts were very accommodating and let us know about some maintenance issues they needed to take care of. They graciously provided breakfast for us one morning to make up for those issues. Quite a few items were in need of repair or maintenance like the keyless entry, shelves in the refrigerator and toilet paper holders, towel holders and landscaping. The home has a nice layout for families with two separate living areas and TVs. The closest grocery store is about a 15 minute drive and there’s a nice breakfast place on the same road, but only open on the weekends.

    Manager's Response:

    Hi Holly, we want our guests to rest easy when they stay with us, and we apologize if you experienced some issues during your trip. We followed up with the homeowner after reading your feedback, and they wanted to share the following:
    - We do understand that amenities play a large role when guests book a property. Please know we have remedied all of the issues mentioned in your review, except the broken door shelf on the refrigerator. That one is trickier to repair, but we are working on it!
    - We do include a map on our listing so that guests can see the approximate location of the home before booking, but we apologize that this caught you off guard. You’re right about there not being a nearby grocery store, but there is a small convenience store just five minutes up the road that has a grocery section with a decent selection.
    - We’re happy you enjoyed the complimentary breakfast we provided as compensation for the maintenance issues during your stay. We truly go above and beyond for our guests, and are confident that future guests will have excellent stays!

  • Stairway to Heaven


    Cool, older property with a freshish interior rehab. Right on the lake but LOTS of steps to get down to it. A fresh deck and stairs makes it nice. Multiple decks for chillin' and good fishing right off the docks The property owners and neighbors are super cool about letting your kids swim and use the floaties, kayaks, etc. Property owner was excellent with questions. Only feedback is the interior details need some attention: just little stuff like the toilet paper holder and towel racks need to be re-tightened and perhaps mounted better. Nothing broke but some of these fell apart and just needed re-assembeled and or tightened up a bit. same with the dinning room chairs - just older chairs needing some re-gluing and or screws to tighten them up. Aside from these VERY MINOR issues - 9/10! Would highly recomend!!

  • Weekend Getaway


    We had a great time. Kids enjoyed the water- swimming and kayacking. Adults also enjoyed fishing and swimming. We loved the big screened back porch, it was very nice in the evenings. House was very clean and had plenty of room. The downstairs was perfect for teenagers to hang out and our little one (4 yrs) wore herself out going up and down, She thought she was a big girl also. We would definitely recommend for a family.

  • Great Family Vacation


    Our family of six had a great time here. Plenty of room, comfortable, and felt like a home away from home. Cooked and ate many of our meals in the kitchen, and spent a rainy day watching movies on the big Roku TVs. We spent time just up the road at Barren River State Park, walking and running on the paved bike/hiking trail, playing on the three different playgrounds, and taking in the beautiful views of the lake. Took a tour of Mammoth Cave 40 minutes north (our original reason for choosing this location), and even took a day trip down to Nashville about an hour and a half south. It’s beautiful area, and this house was a great private place to enjoy a week as a family.
