Fishing Creek Cottage overlooks Fishing Creek, a popular recreational area on Lake Cumberland & a major arm of the lake. Looking from the deck, Pulaski County Park and its beach and boat ramp can be seen across the lake. Boaters frequent the Fishing Creek area to ski & tube, but are distant enough that noise isn't an issue. Fishing Creek Cottage is located at the end of a quiet street in a residential neighborhood, and is the last house on the street so has relative privacy.
Thank you for considering Fishing Creek Cottage. We love our lake house and think you will, too!
Please read all of the description and "Frequently Asked Questions" before booking so that you are absolutely sure our home works for you. Most of our past guests' questions have been addressed in the "FAQ's."
We have an incredible lakefront view that you can enjoy while grilling dinner on the gas grill, sitting by the fire pit, or watching all of the boating action on the lake just below. The view from our large deck includes the popular recreational area on Fishing Creek, a major arm of Lake Cumberland, and parts of Pulaski County State Park. Our entire cottage has been updated. The kitchen includes a full-size stove, refrigerator, microwave oven, and small-space dishwasher and is fully stocked with cook and dishware, including a toaster, coffee pot, and a Keurig. The great room and bedroom have hardwood floors. The bathroom, which has a shower only, has been completely remodeled. There is ample room for parking your boat in the driveway, as well as at least two cars. The cottage is one mile from Lee's Ford Marina and Harbor Restaurant and just five miles from Somerset. The master bedroom, loft, and great room all have televisions and DVD players and cable and the home has WiFi. There is a washer and dryer for your use.
The deck includes a table with seating for 4 as well as 4 Adirondack-style chairs for use around the fire pit or to just relax and enjoy the view. The master bedroom sleeps two and the loft sleeps two. There is also a toddler-sized cot and booster seat for the kitchen table if needed.
Please keep in mind our cottage is an A-frame with a somewhat steep flight of stairs to the loft. The house might be a challenge for taller folks, and the stairs will be a challenge for anyone with mobility issues.
