Swan Pond Cabin is a beautiful riverfront vacation rental in secluded, private area with breathtaking view of the Cumberland River. Located 4 1/2 river miles below the Wolf Creek Dam and steps from a private boat ramp offering easy river access. The ramp leads to the water’s edge and an extensive stretch of wade fishing shoreline that continues upstream beyond the Blackfish Creek tributary which is well exposed during times of controlled low flow release from the Dam.
The Cumberland River is considered among the best trout fisheries east of the Mississippi River with rainbow, brown and brook trout aplenty. During low flow times there’s no better wade fishing spot on the river or place for walks along the river edge. Put in or take out your boat, canoe or kayak at the ramp. (We have a canoe at the cabin available for your use if you don’t bring your own.)
Wolf Creek Dam, the Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery, Hatchery Creek Stream and Wetland Restoration Project, and ramp access to Lake Cumberland are a 15-minute drive from the cabin. (Hatchery Creek is always accessible for shore or wade fishing when the river flow is too high.) Lake Cumberland State Park is 30 minutes away, and Dale Hollow Lake is a 45-minute drive.
Wildlife abounds on the surrounding farm and developing nature preserve areas. Bald eagles in the winter and native and migratory birds, wild turkey, deer, and many other native species can be spotted throughout the year.
The cabin has a central living area with fully equipped kitchen with counter top seating for 6, full size fridge with ice-maker, washer-dryer and 1 1/2 indoor bathrooms and an outdoor enclosed shower. Two brightly lit bedrooms offer views of the river. One bedroom has a queen bed and twin daybed and the other has a full bed and a full/twin bunk bed, so for groups who don’t mind cozying up, the cabin can sleep 6 to 8. Large screened-in porch offers seating and a family size table for meals.
The area in front of the porch overlooks the river and has a fire pit with supplied firewood, corn hole boards, gas grill and an ice cooler. It’s the perfect atmosphere for relaxing and sharing fishing and lake stories.
Ample parking for vehicles and boat trailers is located adjacent to the cabin and ramp. A nearby outdoor picnic area also overlooking the river has horseshoe pits, a picnic table, charcoal grill and fire pit.
