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.

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.

LOL is a perfect Kentucky cabin rental spot for groups and families. If you want to enjoy a very secluded but secure lake front vacation home, then LOL is the perfect place to visit.

Let the kids go bike riding without supervision. There are great places to explore as well as all kinds of wildlife. Deer, turkey and more are abundant due to the lack of people and traffic.

Note: There is no lake access from our community unless you are an experienced hiker/climber. LOL is located on a very steep bluff at over 425 feet above the lake. LOL is all about the views and beauty of the lake and the surrounding vistas. Each of the five bedrooms are individually decorated with a theme in mind, all with flat screen HDTV with DirecTV.

Questions on water access and nearest marina’s: Since we are 425 feet above the lake you would need to be an experienced hiker to make the trek. This is not recommended. The nearest marina is “Lake Cumberland Marina” off of Hwy 1383 in Russell Springs. We are 1.5 miles away from this marina by water but 14 miles away by road. We have a public boat ramp off of Hwy. 76 which is 12 miles away on Mill Hollow and is visible from our gated community. Jabez Beach can be seen from all floor on our decks to the southwest where there is always a show going on. Book Online Here!
