Secluded walk-out lake retreat on a private peninsula. Located near stores and the Wax Marina. This area is called "Wax" and is easily accessible from both I-65 and the Western KY Parkway. If you are looking for a nice private location near Mammoth Cave you found it!
Please note that we are on Central time.
Walk-out level "apartment" has bedroom with queen Tempur-Pedic bed, full bath with heated floor, large open area with media center and wet bar. There is a queen sleeper couch to accommodate 2 additional guests. There is also an outdoor shower for your use during the warmer months if you are so inclined.
There is an outdoor grill with side burner (No stove/oven), microwave, toaster, beverage fridge, small refrigerator and freezer, ice maker, Keurig® coffee maker and bar sink for preparing simple meals. There is also a small fire pit just outside your door - great for making S'Mores!
Guests have a private entrance and can wander the yard and down to the farm. Cat, chickens and dogs provide hilarity and a hammock hidden in the woods overlooking the lake is the perfect place for a nap in warm weather.
I am the only full-time resident of the neighborhood. The people in the neighborhood are very friendly. I also own the farm as you enter the neighborhood. A stocked pond is available for fishing and the farm is there to explore and enjoy.
No public transit is available, but we are just a mile from gas, groceries and the Wax Marina
My property has water on 3 sides, it is located back in the woods and is very private. Perfect for a little quiet and solitude.
There are many places to visit nearby. Mammoth Cave, the world's largest known cave system, is a 35 minute trip by car. Make sure you check for cave tour reservations prior to booking. Just a few miles away is Cub Run Cave. Glendale is a 30 minute drive and provides the Whistle Stop Diner and several antique shops. Of course the main feature is Nolin Lake. Boating, swimming and fishing are close by. We are less than an hour from some of the top Bourbon Distilleries (Maker's Mark, Jim Beam, Heaven Hill and several others) if you have time, they are worth the trip!
Guests have a private entrance and patio area. A key code is provided upon booking via email.
Access the apartment via the sidewalk/steps on the left side of the house.
Interaction with guests
I live on the top floor and am usually available. I will have as much or little interaction as the guests prefer. I will typically meet you, give you a quick walk through and answer any questions you may have. I am around most days if you have any questions or concerns and always available via text.
Other things to note
There are several restaurants within a 20 minute drive. The motel (Nolin Lake Lodge) has a restaurant in season as well and is close by.
If you are going to Mammoth Cave, please make reservations prior to finalizing your booking. The tours fill up fast, especially in the summer months. They do provide online booking of tours on their nicely done website.
When booking, please remember we are on Central time.
Be respectful to others, please don't litter, treat my home as yours, relax and enjoy!
From Dec 22 - 24, 2017 the minimum stay is 3 nights.
Enjoy working around the house and farm. I love animals and the outdoors. I especially love sharing our beautiful area with others. It's my little slice of paradise!
