Secluded walk-out lake retreat on a private peninsula. Located near stores and the Wax Marina. This area is called "Wax" and is easily accessible from both I-65 and the Western KY Parkway. If you are looking for a nice private location near Mammoth Cave you found it!
Please read the entire listing, I have attempted to answer your questions.

Please note that we are on Central time.

The space
Walk-out basement level apartment has bedroom with queen Temper-Pedic bed, full bath with tub/shower and heated floor, large open area with 4K 70" TV & Blu-Ray player. The kitchenette/wet bar has a small refrigerator, under-counter ice maker, Keurig, microwave and toaster. There are large full length windows for a view of the woods/lake. A queen sleeper sofa can accommodate 2 additional guests. There is an outdoor shower for your use during the warmer months if you are so inclined.

Linens, towels, plates, glasses, cups, and silverware are provided, just pack your bag and cooler and head this way!

There is an outdoor grill with a side burner (No stove/oven), microwave, toaster, beverage fridge, small refrigerator and freezer, ice maker, Keurig® coffee maker, and K-Cups® and bar sink for preparing simple meals. There is also a small fire pit just outside your door - great for making S'Mores! Don’t worry, I keep plenty of split wood on hand. A larger Fire-Pit is available in the common yard area as well.

I live on the top floor and a 3 car garage separates the spaces so noise is not an issue. Guests have a private entrance and can wander the yard and down to the farm. Cat, Peacocks, and dogs provide hilarity, and a hammock hidden in the woods overlooking the lake is the perfect place for a nap in warm weather. No animals are permitted in the apartment for the health of all of our guests.

I also own the farm as you enter the neighborhood. A stocked pond is suitable for kids to fish (small bass and bluegill) and ducks, the farm is there to explore and enjoy. The barn offers a covered porch complete with a porch swing, rocking chairs, and ceiling fans.

No public transit is available, but we are just a mile from gas, groceries, and the Wax Marina

My property has water on 3 sides, it is located back in the woods and is very private. Perfect for a little quiet and solitude. It is a steep and rustic walk to the water behind the house, but our docks are across from the barn and offer a great place to swim or just float.

There are many places to visit nearby:

Mammoth Cave, the world's largest known cave system, is a 35 minute trip by car and includes a free ferry ride. Make sure you check for cave tour reservations prior to booking and the operational status of the Green River Ferry.

Glendale is a 35-minute drive and provides the Whistle Stop Diner and several antique shops along the quaint main street. For a little nicer dining, Tony York’s is an upscale “table cloth” restaurant.

Of course, the main feature is Nolin Lake. Boating, swimming, and fishing are close by. If you plan to rent a pontoon boat make sure to reserve it in advance, they book up quickly!

We are a short drive from some of the top Bourbon Distilleries in the world (Maker's Mark, Jim Beam, Heaven Hill, and several others) if you have time, they are worth the trip!

Always feel free to ask, there may be some fun events going on!

Where you’ll be

Wax, Kentucky, United States

I am one of two full-time residents in the neighborhood; however my neighbors, when here, are very friendly. I also own the farm as you enter the neighborhood. A stocked pond (small bass and bluegill) is available for fishing and the farm is there to explore and enjoy. If you have a Kentucky fishing license (available online) our dock area is the perfect spot for fishing or just jump in the lake for a swim. Please note that you swim at your own risk. There are plenty of woods, creeks and areas to discover.

Enjoy working around the house and farm. I love animals and the outdoors. I especially love sharing our beautiful area with others. It's my little slice of paradise!

During your stay

I live on the top floor and am usually available. There is a garage separating the apartment and my area. I will have as much or little interaction as the guests prefer. I will typically meet you, give you a quick walk through and answer any questions you may have. I am nearby most days if you have any questions or concerns and always available via text. Contact numbers are on the table next to the basket of S’mores ingredients.
