We had a wonderful time at Brenda's home. The photos accurately represent her home. We enjoyed the location and access to the boat dock. The only two things that could have enhanced our visit is to have full view of the lake while enjoying sitting on the back porch (shrubs are hu…

Hey Andrea glad you had a good time & you are so welcome for the ice cream. The grandmothers bedroom is a double bed with regular mattress and a grandmothers feather mattress on top. It is one of my granddaughters favorite beds. Remember two can sleep on couch also if you need more room. I have many a night & under the fans it is so comfy. So with the couchs that is 8 or 9 places to sleep. For future trips.

Mermaid Cottage is situated right on Lake Barkley, with its own boat dock. It is a beautiful and well cared for Victorian style home full of antique furnishings and accentuated by Brenda's Mermaid (and cowboy) theme. It is a perfect place to disconnect from the pressures of reg…

Brent is home is on a Cove so swimming off the pier and fishing is quiet and enjoyable. There is a large porch off the back for relaxation, and a sizable yard which was great for fireworks on the 4th. The thing that was unexpected was this sheer amount of knickknacks and clutter …

Eln I have never had such a negative review. Mermaid Cottage on Barkley Lake, it is not Kentucky Lake, is our home and everyone has always enjoyed our home & boat dock. In the south if the décor is not to your taste you don't offend someone. Your private review was better than the public one, which tells me a lot about you.

Hi Sara, so glad you had a good time with your friends. We do have cell phone service from upper balcony. There is a tower right there. There is also internet. This area has some dead areas but you can get service. Thanks again for the yummy cake & pineapple. What a sweet thing to do. But someone did leave their shoes on porch & meds in the fridge. If you would call me & let me have an address. I will send them to you. They are little brown shoes with lots of small holes. Water shoes?? Thanks, Brenda
