Look-Out Lodge is a true Lake Cumberland lake front property. Unlike many other rental properties that boast “lake front and water views” that are seasonal (winter) or have obstructed views, that is not the case here at Look Out Lodge. We have 365 days of unobstructed views of Lake Cumberland (not Cumberland River) from any of the four floors on our property. There is nothing blocking the view of the lake and the surround bluffs from anywhere on our property. You have a complete “birds eye” view since you are above the tree line rather then in them. The views are breathtaking, as noted by our past guests.

And for our returning house guests you will see some noticeable additions that we have made in 2016 to make LOL a more relaxing and entertaining stay for you and your guests. With free high speed WIFI to 10 flat screen televisions located all around the lodge, you will find that LOL has a lot of entertainment to offer. Although we limit our house guests to 12 persons in total, we now have outdoor dining seating on the third floor balcony that can easily accommodate more then our limit guests. Other requests from guests recently was for a Keurig coffee makers for the two kitchens and hair dryers for each bathroom. Well we heard you and added them.Look-Out Lodge is a four story custom built log and stone home which has a total of 5,275 sq. ft. of indoor living space and over 2,800 sq. ft. of wrap around porches on both the 2nd and 3rd floor. There is an additional court yard on the 1st level facing Lake Cumberland with another private tiled patio with outdoor dining table and four dining room swivel chairs with accessed either through the recreation room or by the outdoor stair case.

Look Out Lodge is fully equipped with more than the average rental property. Each individual bedroom is specifically furnished and decorated based on a theme and each has it’s own engraved suite name above the entrances to give it that “personal touch” This also allows guests to pick their own bedrooms in advance of arriving to avoid who’s sleeping where. Each year there are new features added to the lodge that repeat house guests will and have noticed. The views of Lake Cumberland and the surrounding vistas from the lodge will keep you out on the outside decks more than inside. You can see for miles all around and from a birds eye perspective. And don’t worry if the weather gets bad. All of the balconies are fully covered so you can sit back, relax and enjoy the views no matter what the weather brings. There is casual seating all along the main 3rd floor deck as well as a 4 person bar height table with swivel chairs for guests to enjoy. There are two outdoor dining tables with swivel chairs that will accommodate 14 diners. Look Out Lodge also provides cushioned swivel rockers; wooden rocking chairs and two double seated gliders which face the front yard to welcome your fellow guests as they arrive. Whether you’re dining out, having drinks, or just relaxing, the outdoor balconies are perfect any time of the day or night.
Look-Out Lodge has a total of 5 bedrooms; 4 1/2 bathrooms; 2 kitchens; great room and dining room on the main floor (3rd floor); a second living room & dining room on the 2nd floor as well as the recreation and game room on the 1st floor.
