Fishing Creek Cottage overlooks Fishing Creek, a popular recreational area on Lake Cumberland and a major arm of the lake. Pulaski County Park and its beach and boat ramp can be seen across the lake. Boaters frequent the area to ski & tube, but are distant enough that noise isn't an issue. We are the last house at the end of a quiet street in a residential neighborhood, & so have relative privacy. The large deck and impressive view are frequently referenced in our guests' reviews.

The space
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, waffle maker, crock pot, griddle, coffee pot, and a Keurig, among other things.

The living area includes seating for four, a Smart TV with access to multiple cable channels and platforms like Netflix (with your personal login credentials), a generous selection of movies for use with the DVD player, a gas fireplace, and books and magazines. The adjacent dining area has seating for four.

The Master bedroom includes a queen size platform bed, a SMART TV and DVD player, and large closet (8 x 3 feet) that can be used to store luggage or wakeboards, etc., and where our guests will find a toddler-sized cot, booster seat, and vacuum if needed.

The Loft includes a full size bed, a SMART TV and DVD player, a game console, and gaming chairs.

The bathroom, which includes a shower only, has been completely updated. There is also a washer and dryer combo available for guest 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. There are also tiki torches with bug repellent fuel that can be used to mitigate pest issues on the deck during the warmer months.

There is ample room for parking your boat in the driveway, as well as at least two cars. Fishing Creek Cottage is located one mile from Lee's Ford Marina and Harbor Restaurant and just five miles from Somerset.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Is there access to the lake from Fishing Creek Cottage?
No, our home is on a steep cliff. The best access to the lake from Fishing Creek Cottage is at Lee's Ford Marina or Pulaski County State Park.

Is there room for our boat in your driveway?
Yes. We keep our boat in the driveway during our stays. When you book with us, be sure to read the guest info about suggestions for parking your boat.

Is there a dock nearby?
Yes. Lee's Ford Marina is about a mile down the road. You can launch your boat for $8 or dock your boat there for about $30 per night. **On Labor Day weekend 2019 the marina charged $30 for parking and did not have open slips available for overnight storage, so plan ahead.** They also have boats, wave runners, and paddle boards available for rental. Fishing Creek Recreational Area is three miles away and is $5 to launch. Pulaski County State Park is 3.9 miles away and they offer free public launching.

Is there swimming nearby?
Lake Cumberland is surrounded by many cliffs. Swimming usually occurs from boats. Nearby swimming is available at Pulaski County State Park where they have a small beach and playground, as well as some hiking trails.

Do you have life jackets or other equipment available? We do not. You will need to provide your own equipment or contact Lee's Ford Marina about rental rates.

Is your home pet-friendly?
It is! However, there is a $50 pet fee per stay and we allow only 1 pet. Your pet must be under 40 pounds. You must agree to these rules: pet must be leashed when outside the home, pet must be crated when alone inside the home, pet will not be permitted on furniture or beds, Guest will provide a pet bed during stay, all waste must be cleaned up and disposed of properly by Guest, pet must be housebroken, pet must be on a flea/tick prevention during stay.

What do you provide during my stay? What do I need to bring?
We will be sure you have toilet paper, tissues, dish washing liquid and dishwasher soap, as well as propane for the gas grill. Towels and bed linens are provided. We try and keep extra supplies like bar soap, shampoo, and razors under the bathroom sink just in case our guests forget something. You may need to supply extra paper towels depending on your usage, laundry detergent if you plan to do laundry, and firewood for use with the outside fire pit. Firewood can be purchased at several local retailers.

Do you have suggestions for things to do or places to visit?
Yes! All of this info is located in a binder in our home, but is also found under "Guest resources" when you book with us. I also add suggestions that I receive from our guests so that our future guests can enjoy the Lake Cumberland area to its fullest!

We are lucky in that all of the homes on our street are well-maintained and we have limited traffic since we are in a cul-de-sac.

I am a married middle school teacher with three children of my own. I like to go to work (it's fun to hang out with 6th graders!), read, do crossword puzzles and cryptoquips, care for my flowers and garden, and decorate my house. I love spending time with my family, particularly in a boat on Lake Cumberland or on a deck overlooking it! I really enjoy sharing our home with our guests, and truly want everyone to thoroughly enjoy their "downtime" during their stay.
