Our home is right on the Tennessee River side of Kentucky Lake. We have our own personal boat ramp, so you can drop your boat in, or enjoy a nice walk along the shoreline. We have gorgeous views from almost every room in the house.

Our family enjoys staying here for extended periods of time since we are able to WORK FROM HOME with our surprisingly fast internet for the remote location.

The space
Hidden Shores is a 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom REMOTE lake house designed for relaxation, refreshment, and fun in mind. Whether you are coming to escape the hustle and bustle of life for a peaceful family retreat, or just want to get a change of scenery and work remotely while your family plays, our home away from home will suit your needs.

Immerse yourself in nature with our impressive views of Kentucky Lake/Tennessee River. Watch the occasional barge go by, listen to the waves while relaxing on the deck, take a swim along the shallow shoreline, fish the day away (great fishing location), go boating with the ease of our private boat ramp (explore the ruins of the underground railroad just 2000 ft downriver), occasionally see the white-tailed deer who stop by for a drink, and birdwatch (see if you can spot the bald eagle that is nesting on our 2- wooded acres).

The Drive:
Get into "rest-mode" while driving along The Tennessee River Trail Scenic Byway to our shoreside retreat on Kentucky Lake. The drive is an adventure in itself as you meander through picturesque countryside and small, hometown America. Then, wind through the woods (about 5 minutes) on a semi-private gravel road to our "hidden" home along the shoreline. Other than our one next-door neighbor, we are situated on 2 wooded acres with over 1000 undeveloped acres adjacent to our property.

**As common in the area, due to the hilly and windy roads, we do recommend 4 wheel drive or chains for your tires in the winter months where there is a possibility for ice.
This only happens occasionally, but is a possibility(check weather conditions) **

The House:

Our eat-in kitchen is stocked with the cooking essentials you need to cook your favorite meals all while you admire the view of the lake. Our dining room table is big enough to enjoy a home-cooked meal or play a family board game.

The kitchen opens up to our comfortable Great Room that has plenty of natural light and views of the lake. There is no lack of seating with our cozy sofas and arms chairs, and we have enough throw blankets around to keep you all snuggled up to watch a movie on our large Smart TV. We have a fold-out couch for an optional extra bed.

Walk out onto our sprawling deck from the kitchen that looks over Kentucky Lake. It has a large gas grill to cook up some burgers or make a nice steak meal. We also have a gas-powered fire-pit conveniently situated on the deck to enjoy late-night chats around the fire with family and friends.

The Master King Suite has a new luxurious king-sized bed with a new mattress, full private bathroom, work-from-home "office nook", large smart TV, and coffee station. There are full windows on the east side of the room with a sliding door that opens to the large deck and adirondack seating area, the perfect place to enjoy a cozy morning coffee while you watch the sun come up over the lake.

The two guest rooms have queen-sized beds with brand-new memory foam mattresses. Each closet has extra linens, a folding desk for an option for remote workers, and an extra rollaway bed (for an extra fee)

The 2nd full bathroom has a one-piece tub and shower to conveniently bathe your little ones.

Our rec room is located in the detached garage. It is the perfect place for keeping the kids busy while the adults want some downtime (or vice versa!). Equipped with foosball, ping pong, an arcade machine, seating areas, and even an exercise bike/elliptical machine for those who want to get in a quick workout. A portable corn hole game is also stored in the rec room for our guests to use (we enjoy taking it down to the grassy area on the shoreline). *Please note: This space is not yet temperature-controlled*
