The Drake Barn is located on 170 forested acres in the heart of Western Kentucky less than a mile from beautiful Kentucky Lake providing ready access to KY Lake, Lake Barkley, Land Between The Lakes National Recreation Area, and only 11 miles from the court square in historic downtown Murray KY, home of Murray State University.

The space
Over the years, we have had the privilege of hosting an eclectic array of people bound by their passion for the outdoors; Hunters and Fishermen (and women, of course) from, quite literally, all over the world; Lovers of all sorts of water sports; Visitors to the MSU Campus for the wide array of sports and cultural activities provided by the historic, vibrant University and the city of Murray; and also, many folks who just wanted to “get away from it all” and enjoy a relaxing bit of the country life!

The Drake Barn Loft is also somewhat unique in that we can handle a relatively large number of guests making it ideal for family groups.

Please note in the bedroom photos that we have 5 bunk beds in the barn loft. The bottom bunk in each is actually a double bed which was counted as a single when determining the number of guests that we can accommodate comfortably. This feature gives an added measure of flexibility in sleeping arrangements for our guests and family units... and the kids love them!

We have a large modern kitchen, as you will see in the photos.
Plenty of parking for boats! We are open year round. We have an Outdoor fire pit and a large, cozy, wood stove in the Barn Dining Lounge with plenty of firewood! AT&T tower reception is very poor here but we have free WiFi for AT&T/WiFi calling. Verizon tower service works pretty well. There is a large screen Satellite TV in the Barn Loft. Plenty of refrigeration/freezer space available for hunters and fishermen. Free ice.

Sorry, no furry friends allowed!
