This was a nice long weekend stay for a visit to Mammoth Cave. I couldn't find the entry code when we were on the way and the owners responded very quickly to my email. Everything was clean and in good repair. Thank you.
Everything went great!
The cabin, the location and the surroundings was just what our family needed. Before we left my husband and I were thinking of return trips. Perfect location for unwinding, unplugging, relaxing and enjoying one another. The kids loved their adventures around the lake and camp fires at night. I had not seen the boys use their imagination that much in a long time. Wonderful
The property was exactly like described. We loved the view emiously and the house was very accomodating. Thx for working with us on a one night stay.
We shared this house with another family. The house was great and we all had a wonderful time.
Everything Was Great.Tim and Roxanne Took care of any Questions We Had. Loved Our Stay
Enjoyed our stay at the lake house. House was clean and well kept. Enjoyed our brief stay and hope to return!
Easy to rent . Loved the home.
The bed in the master bedroom could not have been worse. Please invest in a new mattress. One burner on the stove did not work and the oven was disgusting. We have to wipe the grease out so as not to set off the smoke detectors. I was surprised that there wasn't a dishwasher. My bad. A dishwasher was not listed. Also as listed the trip down the hill to the lake is not easy. We did have fun and enjoyed the covered deck. The view was beautiful. With a few improvements this house could be perfect.
Overall exactly as advertised. Kitchen fully stocked. Great patio looking over the lake. Dedicated boat slip. Ramp 1000 feet away. Only thing to be aware of is the steepness of the hill down to the house and from the house to the lake. Not an overall concern for my family. Would recommend
Enjoyed our stay and visit to Mammoth Cave. Beautiful location. Granddaughters had fun catching fish off the dock. Highly recommend it. Only drawback is it's a steep walk from the water back to the house.
Easy and smooth renting process. The property was perfect for the 8 of us to include 3 children 6,3 and 19 months. My family and I suggest updated photos. The home looked even better in person. It was clean and well kept. The large outside deck was great for meal times and enjoying the lake view. The 2 1/2 baths was a bonus when it came to all of us getting ready. We would visit again . Melissa D. And family
The cabin is nice and more updated than the pictures show. But there is no ladder on the dock to swim so you can only fish on the property and have to go to the state park or on a boat to swim. It's also a VERY steep walk from the water to cabin. There is no dishwasher or Wi-Fi but we got good cell signal/service with Sprint. Hard mattresses but pillows and sheets were nice and new and there was plenty of them.
Very nice property and clean. Would def book again. Beautiful view as well.
Tim and Roxanne were very hospitable and responsive to any questions. We were given detailed information before we left for our trip which was extremely helpful. Also needed to reach them once there and was able to do so which is great. Greatly enjoyed the peace and quiet, wonderful view and the disconnect from wifi. Wonderful books for those rainy days, I always leave one (they had my genre, I left an odd one, hope someone enjoys it). We are grateful for them sharing their home with us. Someone left firewood as did we as it's not good to transport wood from state to state. Thank you Tim and Roxanne as well as Tims' father, extremely personable.
This place was nice and having a bathroom in each bedroom was great as well as the special shampoos and conditioner in each , nice touch. The deck was nice with a couple of tables, chairs and cushions could be updated. Everything in the kitchen worked good and plenty of amenities to use. The one bed was great the other with the orange bedspread was really really hard, needs to be replaced. The bunk bed worked but quite squeaky when moving around. The bathroom faucet in the bunk bed room has the cold and hot mixed up, needs to be fixed. The tv instructions need to be updated took awhile to figure it out. Also confusing instructions on closing , book said one thing and the sheet on frig said different. WiFi would be nice but not too bad. But all in all good place to stay. My sisters and I had a great time.
If you are looking for a place to get away from busy city life, this is a great option. The cabin was clean, spacious, and convenient. The views are breathtaking.
Beautiful property very relaxing and peaceful
Cabin was great. Too bad the national park was closed due to the government shut down. We found other caves to visit.
A very good holiday with family
we loved the secluded location - you can see so many stars! amazingly beautiful view of the lake from the deck. great proximity to Mammoth Cave. it was really nice that each bedroom had it's own bathroom. the beds were not very comfortable though. the cabin also did not have as many things such as spices, coffee, etc available as a lot of other similar properties I have stayed in do. overall a great place - would stay again!
Provided a great getaway for Thanksgiving. It’s a beautiful spot right on lake Nolin.
Beautiful scenery, very nice cabin
We really enjoyed our stay. The view was beautiful and we had everything we needed and clean! Would definitely recommend!
Our experience was awesome. This home is beautiful and has a deck to die for. My grandchildren enjoyed all the close attractions and relaxation of this place. We are looking forward to booking again maybe spring 😊
Great place to get away spend time together while being close to Mammoth Cave.
The cabin was very clean and is very spacious. We enjoyed the view from the deck everyday, just don't forget the bug spray like we did! :)
We enjoyed our stay so much! Very comfy, clean and supplied well. The extra living area was a great place for our kids to play! We did use our space heater in there but it was perfect! Decor was nice and not overdone or cluttered. That's a big deal to me. Owners were available to help us find a store since the internet on our phones wasnt working. Was very grateful for that! Hoping to come back when it is warmer! Highly recommended!
My family had a wonderful weekend at this charaming home. The lakeside view and the large porch were our favorite features. We ate outside, talked outside and watched the sun set out there too. The house floor plan was great. Every room seemed spacious. We fished off the dock at the lake and had a great time. I would definitely recommend to anyone looking for a weekend getaway with the family.
the cabin was exactly as presented on the website. The only downside for us was that it was a hour away from everything that we planned to do. The location was perfect if you were content to settle in and spend time on the amazing porch. Access to the lake was steep so one member of our group could not go down to the lake. Clean and well equipped.
Awesome location witha great view and all the amenities you need.
Would definitely stay here again.
Wonderful place to take friends and family. Terrific view of the lake, great accommodations. The large open covered porch was fantastic!
Had a great time, LOVED the spacious porch where 8 of us hung out and ate all meals our entire stay. Accommodations were great. location was remote and quiet- just what we wanted. Only thing we wished for was a ladder/stairs on the docks to get out easier after swimming. Proximity to Nolin Lake State Park and Mammoth Cave National Park was perfect.
My family really enjoyed themselves, this was a great place to stay. The cabin is very spacious for a bigger family. The view from the massive deck was amazing. It was very peaceful to sit out there at night and listen to all the crickets, tree frogs and other creatures. I would highly recommend staying at this cabin.
This was the first time I had ever used vrbo. The house was amazing, location was perfect, and tim was always there to help. My family and I had an amazing vacation. We are already planning our trip back for next year! Thank you so much
Loved that each bedroom had its own bathroom. We really enjoyed the spacious deck and grill. Being able to see the boat slip and dock from the the deck was a nice bonus. Great experience.
Cabin is great, we were looking for an easy laid back lake house and this fits that description well. Out in the wilderness enough but close enough to things. Only 20 mins to Mammoth caves. Would do it again for sure. Amanda
Very comfortable and clean cabin. Short drive to mammoth cave. Nice to have room to relax after a day in the caves. Thank you!
The cottage was clean and welcoming and the scenery was stunning. A wonderful getaway.
A group of 8 of us travel to different lakes every MDW. "Lakeside Dreams" did not disappoint! Even though the actual indoor space was smaller than what we're used to, the covered back deck is where we spent most of our time when not on the water and it was the best. All meals were eaten on the deck, and cornhole/games were played under the covered car port... when not sitting by the firepit. The shared dock was pretty quite, so we were able to hang out at the last slip and swim/hang out there as we do not have a boat
Fantastic covered deck that faces the lake! Spacious, super clean, well equipped, decorated and appointed, relaxing! I could go on and on. Pictures do not do it justice. Suggest taking your own food as there isn't anything close by. Grill and deck furniture are provided. Full kitchen has everything you need! If you are city folk and used to having an abundance of restaurants and shopping nearby, this doesn't fit the bill. But, that is the beauty of it because you really don't want to leave the cabin! If you must, however, I highly recommend going into Brownsville and eat at Laura's Hilltop restaurant. Great food, service and prices. This place was perfect for our girl's weekend. We each had our own bedroom and bath. Too chilly to be on the water but it is nice that there is a pier for fishing or docking a boat. (Note: If you have kids, water is deep, not like a natural lake with gradual walk out. Bring life jackets.) Would definitely return!
Perfect getaway and would highly recommend this property!!
The cabin was exactly what we were looking for. It was very clean and a bathroom for each of the 3 guest rooms was nice. It easily accommodated the 7 guys for our trip to Mammoth cave. We were within 10-15 minutes of the cave. Would recommend this to anyone staying in the area.
I came with three of my children it was very nice we each had our room and bathroom for all I would highly recommend this beautiful setting for any and all families
This cabin is exactly as pictured, only there have been some nice updates to the bedroom decor. The lake house was so clean and tidy and the deck was grand. It was too cold to do too much outdoors so our short stay was simply a nice respite as we said hello to the sound of birds at sunrise and took in a beautiful sunset. We will come back someday. We like to keep the campers motto, that you leave the place a little better than we found it, but there seriously couldn't find anything to improve on. Thank you for the opportunity to share your little treasure. Tim and Val Parrott
A great location to spend quality time. Nice large lot and house was roomy. We visited over Thanksgiving so didn't have an opportunity to enjoy the lake other than walking the shore. We would enjoy coming back to experience the summer months. We spent time at Mammoth Caves, checked out the nearby dam and a couple of towns. The house seems remote but is not far to local attractions. It allowed us quiet family time around the fire as well as adventures that created great memories.
Wow!!!! This lake house was perfect. We went with another family. They don't do justice in describing this property. There where two main bedrooms with queens and a kid room with a bunk bed queen/twin. Each room has its own bathroom!!!!! That was a nice surprise. Also there was nothing in the description about the fire pit. We had a fire every night and found firewood right off the highway. This was so close to Mammoth Caves. We also did a little fishing in the lake and my daughter caught 2 fish. This house was dated, but clean!!!!! Very clean. I also loved how the huge deck was covered. Also amazing lake views and sunsets. I would highly recommend this house.
Had everything we needed for a relaxing stay!
My girlfriends and I had a wonderful getaway at this house on the lake. Everything was great. Very clean. Only thing we might add would be some additional serving ware - large bowls, bread basket, etc.
Clean,neat and accommodating house. Excellent proximity to lake.
First thing that we noticed was how clean and organized the place was. Ample room for the 6 of us and the 3 bathrooms worked out wonderfully. Would recommend the location to any one and really appreciate the owner being so nice about our staying just a little bit longer than published. Nice drive to Mammoth Cave.
house was a perfect lakeside base for a multi-generational family visit to Mammoth Caves--it is a bit of a backroads drive to get to the Caves--but worth it as we needed a 3 bedroom place. Homey family cottage--my favorite aspect was the huge open air but covered back porch/deck. I had wondered about the small four person table shown in photos--the deck has two large tables & multiple chairs. It was a little hard to find as we arrived after dark the first evening--a solar light on the garage would help & driveway reflectors would help guide to the driveway. No complaints other than that.
House is perfect. Neighbors are nice. Perfect location!
Close to the lake, boat ramp walking distance to the property, boat slip very convenient, modest but nice amenities. Had a great time!
Cute place! It had everything we needed! It's a little outdated and the hill you climb back up from the boat dock was a monster but for the price, it was awesome! Thank you for allowing us to make memories in your piece of paradise!
The house was all as advertised, we all enjoyed swimming in the warm clean lake every day, only improvement would be a simple safe ladder to get out of the water...? We had to get permission from very nice neighbors to use the ladder on their pontoon boats. Nice quiet area, warm family restaurants nearby.
Fantastic location on the lake. The home is very clean and the kitchen is well stocked with many pans, bowls, utensils etc. My family truly enjoyed our time here. We will definitely be returning.
The cabin was clean with a nice view. The owners were accommodating. We enjoyed the lake, the fire pit and the large porch. Spotty cell signal. Wifi or a landline would have helped with communication with our friends at another cabin, we had to drive over to them to communicate. Not good if there had been an emergency. Overall a very nice place.
The house was very nice and clean when we got there. Beautiful view off the back deck and not a far walk to the dock. Neighbors were nice and very welcoming. The owners where easy to communicate with and where there with any questions. Had great cell service. Will definitely plan another trip back to this house. Thank you for letting us stay at your beautiful lake house, William Bose
We enjoyed our stay at Lakeside Dreams! The cabin has a gorgeous view from a spacious covered deck. The house was clean, the kitchen well-equipped, beds were comfy. Highly recommend!
My sisters and I had a great trip in April. I enjoyed the cottage very much, it's the 2nd time I've stayed there and may visit again in the future. Great location.
We had a wonderful stay! Comfortable cabin and beautiful view!
This property had plenty of room for 5 adults and 2 children inside and out. The large outside deck that overlooks the lake is the perfect place to spend your day. From early morning to sunset, we were able to sit and enjoy the wonderful view and the peace and quiet of the area. The walk to the lake was short (though could be challenging on the way back up) and the dock area was open and the fishing was incredible. My grandsons were thrilled to be catching bluegill with very little effort. Inside the cabin was plenty of room to sit and play cards, eat a meal or just relax and catch up with each other. The kitchen was well stocked with meal and cooking supplies. 2 1/2 baths made a big difference when the family was all trying to bathe and get ready. Beds were comfortable and the bedrooms were not crammed with furniture giving you plenty of room to move around. The location is about a 20 minute drive (including ferry trip) to Mammoth Cave. This was a wonderful retreat after a day of cave touring!
We really enjoyed the loacation and had a great time.
Very peaceful. Loved the deck. Clean place. Pots and pans to cook in need to be replaced. It's a steep walk to the lake.
Loved eating breakfast every morning on the deck overlooking the lake. My children fished every night off the dock, catching blue gills like crazy. The bass were a little pickier. Wonderful place to take off from to visit Louisville (Slugger Museum & Zoo), Bowling Green (Corvettes) and the many caves in the area. Getting anywhere requires Google Maps and at least a 20 minute drive, but OMG---the drive is absolutely beautiful and lots of fun. And the roads were well maintained, so it was easy to get where we wanted to go. Thank you
We had a really nice weekend staying at this house! Very clean when we arrived! Not too bad of a drive to attractions like the caves or dinosaur world. Our favorite part was the huge, covered deck!!
Our brady bunch, family of 9 had a wonderful time on Nolan Lake. The property was perfect, large living area and den, 3 bedrooms along with 3 baths furnished well and very clean. Kitchen and bathrooms had everything we needed for a comfortable trip. The screened porch overlooked the lake (stunning view). A walk down the steep hill (a little rough on the legs) brought you to the dock. Our kids loved jumping off the dock and swimming in Nolan Lake and playing on the rocks. If you have children or even if you are just a kid at heart, I recommend visiting Mammoth Cave, Kentucky Down Under, and Dinosaur World for sure. Great trip and definitely one that our family will cherish a lifetime. Thanks so much to Marcia Smith for being so easy to work with and opening her home to our family!
Me and three girlfriends stayed here over the weekend and went to Mammoth Cave on Saturday. The cabin was great and we had a wonderful time. The location was good and such a beautiful view of the lake. We really enjoyed our stay. Loved the big patio in back.
We had at great stay at Lakeside Dreams. It was better than the pictures showed. Very spacious and had everything we needed. We loved the porch and ate every meal there. Cell reception, including Internet connection, was great. I just advise getting there in daylight. We arrived around 8:30 and it was hard to find as it is below the road down a steep driveway. The lake level was at the low winter pool level, but a quick walk to the boat landing made it easy to fish. Our son caught his first fish of the season there. It was a quick drive to Mammoth Cave where we enjoyed great hiking and of course cave tours. Plus there were several places to stop for groceries between the house & park. Overall, a great location. I would recommend staying if you're looking for a fun Mammoth Cave adventure.
We enjoyed our stay. The cabin was clean and had considerations for all ages! I would recommend a stay.
We visited the area to go Mammoth Caves during our break. The home is very close to the Green River ferry (free) which takes you across to the National Park. A huge plus was the weather, very warm and sunny! We did not get to enjoy the dock as the water was too low but did get to fish near the dam and the area was very pretty for pictures. The home is very comfortable and each bedroom has its own bathroom. It was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. The deck is perfect for relaxing and enjoying the water views. It is large with a lot of room to sit. The only small negative is that the mattress in the bedroom with the lighthouse decor has a small slant to the side. We would stay here again.
Beautiful view from the deck!
Everything was great. We enjoyed our time there.
The over all stay was nice. The house was roomy enough for our group of 4 adults and 3 kids. But there was no cell service at all. No phone in the house. And we had to drive a good hour to get service on our phone. Once we got off the interstate we had to drive a hour in a very small town to get to the house. I wish we would of known this before booking the room. Besides that everything was okay. But at 10:45am the day we were leaving the cleaning lady knocked on the door and seemed very rude making a comment about us still being there when check out is at 11am. And they ask that you strip all the beds and clean the kitchen before you leave. A little understandable about the dishes and trash but when you are on vacation, you shouldn't have to strip the beds and tidy up before you leave. We will not be coming back because of the big problem of being so far away from town and not with cell service.
Good, it is what it says it is
Great location , Great view of the Lake , Very nice lake lot and home. Everything was very comfortable. Would definitely like to come back.
When they say all you need to bring is food they are correct. There is everything needed at this property. The house does need some updating but when traveling with 7 kids it was just perfect. No need to worry about breaking things or saying "don't touch that". We traveled with bikes thinking the property didn't look as steep as it was but The kids were able to ride on the nice quiet road and really enjoyed themselves. We were not able to enjoy the outdoors as much as we would have liked due to weather. The owner even let us check in early and after a 10 hour drive from snowy NY it was so very nice of them! We have plans already on booking this next year at some point. Thank you so much much!!
This home was perfect for four adults and two children. Convenient to Mammoth Cave and other attractions. The home was clean and as advertised. The deck is very large and perfect for enjoying the beautiful view. There is a slip to use in front of the house. There is a substantial hill to climb from the water to the house. It was very peaceful and we thoroughly enjoyed our stay. To respond to the previous reviewer about the refrigerator not getting cold: the door just needs to be shut tight. One of the bottom drawers does not shut all the way. Everything was very cold for us. Would definitely stay again.
We were planning a trip to Mammoth Cave National Park with our 8 and 10 year old grandchildren and wanted to stay someplace close, but off the beaten path with plenty of room for them to explore and play. This property was absolutely perfect. The best features of this home are the large deck with a view of the lake and the game room! Morning coffee and dinners on the deck were a great way to start and end the day. The kids managed to keep themselves busy in the game room or running around the huge yard. Another highlight was having lunch at the Blue Holler Cafe. The food was good and visiting with the owners was an added bonus. I'd definitely recommend this lake house and would stay here again if we make it back to Mammoth Cave.
The house was nice and clean. The area was quiet and peaceful. We really enjoyed our stay! Eating outside on the porch was great. The view of the lake was lovely. The walk to the lake was a little steep, but we made it down and up without a problem.
Very well kept and accommodating! 6 of my friends and I stayed here for two nights for a "retail weekend" getaway. It was perfect! We decided to make this our annual spot.
the house was clean and all the basics are provided. there is a nice fire pit and deck with lots of seating. the area is quiet. the house is dark and gloomy and outdated, and over priced compared to other rentals we have stayed in. the lake is down a hill and not really accessible from the house. we left a day early. the owner is very nice and went out of her way to mail back some clothes that were left behind.
A nice place, exactly as advertised. Very clean, comfortable and convenient to the beach, cave and parks. We all had a great time. Only complaint we had was that the refrigerator didn't seem to get very cold.
We had a great time at this property. The house was cleaned and had a great view of Nolin Lake. The description was pretty accurate and the house pretty well maintained. The only two things that I could say against the place was that it actually sleeps 7 adults, not 8, and there was one of the 3 toilets which had a broken flush. But besides that it was a great weekend retreat, we had a great time and I would definitely go back there.
We enjoyed the view of the lake, the peace and calm of the neighborhood, and the ease of getting around within the community! Everyone we came in contact with was friendly and helpful! Would stay there again and recommend this property to family and friends!
This was a really great cabin with beautiful views! Our family had a great time.
This lake house was the perfect fit into my plans. With a party of 6 our stay would have required a minimum of 2 hotel rooms, which would have been an increase in cost. Also with a hotel there is a loss of personal space and privacy. This house was large enough that I never once tripped over one of the others. And the neighborhood was quite and peaceful. The location was another benefit, it's centrally located to the places I visited. I must admit that I did not take advantage of this properties primary attraction, Lake Nolin. But the deck looking over the lake was the perfect spot for morning coffee. One should understand that they are renting a house. And as with every house there are areas that could use attention. To my knowledge they were all cosmetic, everything mechanical worked as expected. I would recommend this rental and when making any future trips to the area I'll be a repeat guest if available.

Very nice location and plenty of room close to many places very nice
