The Space

Private entrance & floor all to yourself: Large Kitchen/ Den, private Master bedroom has queen bed & full size beds. There's a 2nd bedroom (under construction) clothes rack in there you can use & store your luggage. Twin bed set up in the hall way outside bedroom for 5th guest, this connects to the Living room/Den. I also have a twin air mattress if needed plus the sofa is very comfy! 5 guest's can sleep comfortably in the beds. A 6th or 7th person would be crowded, but doable!

Our space was built for 100% privacy. Other than hearing us walk upstairs you might now know we are there. We won't hear you!

We have a beautiful quite wooded neighborhood, great for walking with a country feel but only 1 mile from groceries, pharmacy, restaurants and a dollar store and only 2 miles from ky lake marina.
Parking is around the back of the house. Our large circle driveway extends to in the back & can easily accommodates 2 cars. You could also park a boat here. There are no steps. Only 1 bedroom is available. The 2nd bedroom is in the middle of remodeling but I have 1 twin bed available for parties of 3 or 4.

Guest Access

The entire floor with everything furnished you'd need plus a huge parking lot for cars & boats. Table & 2 outdoor chairs outside your door. (more chairs are available) Extra large wooden colorful picnic table & metal swing. The entire back yard, with play area for kids. The neighborhood for walking. And our deck with grill & pool in season (may-sept)

Interaction with Guests

Interaction will be your choice. We are on the floor above you & can't even hear you! You may hear us so I leave a white noise machine next to the bed to block out the sound when you sleep. We are available 24-7 via a phone call or text. I love my southern heritage and plan to make you feel welcome!

The Neighborhood

We have a beautiful quite wooded neighborhood, great for walking, almost no traffic!! This house has a southern rural country setting and feel, but we are located VERY CLOSE TO the main roads, only 1 mile from groceries, pharmacy, restaurants and a convenient store and only 2 miles from Ky Dam State Park & the lake. We love to watch humming birds and fireflies, or "lightening bugs" and listen to the frogs at night. There's 2 RED Tail hawks living in the tress so you may see and hear them. There's lots of nature here and zero-1 car tops, traffic in this neighborhood with a dead end & circle street.

Getting Around

You'll have private paved parking in the back area behind our house. One block from hwy 641 & 1422 , super easy access to interstates and lake. Our address is Benton but we live in the Draffenville which is closer to Paducah & Land Between the Lakes on the Ky Lake side! Paducah & Barkley Airports are 10 & 30 miles from here. Most guests drive but we will pick you up from the airport should you fly here! Enterprise is the closest local car rental plus a local car dealer who rents too.

Other Things to Note

Fellow coffee lovers will have both a mini Keurig and a regular 4 cup coffee maker. I'll leave coffee, teas, sugar, hot chocolate, oatmeal & popcorn for your stay plus some delicious snack probably donuts from my favorite local bakery! Many times I leave farm fresh eggs, fruit, crackers, sausage & toast with home made jelly and/or waffles. You won't go hungry here!
We keep thermostat on 72 which makes YOUR SPACE 68-69 (URL HIDDEN) cold in the summer months of May-August. It's so bring warm lounging/sleepwear! I have extra blankets, jackets or hoodies, & robes & socks available if you need them. PLEASE ASK!! I don't want you to be uncomfortable!!
