Lakefront vacation home with kitchen and patio
Nell's is a quiet, secluded spot to enjoy the beauty of nature with good company. The beautiful family history here is surpassed only by the surroundings. Nell's was once just a 200 year old log cabin that was relocated to the spot. But before Nell (my Grandmother) would move in, it had to be a little more modern.

Being a native Kentuckian born in 1922, she wasn't so enamored with old log cabins. So in the early 80's, a new section was added with lots of windows to let the beauty of the surroundings gloriously shine through.

Nell decided it was the "most beautiful place" she'd ever seen and moved from eastern Kentucky into what became known by all as "Down at Nell's". It has a special place in our hearts and we’re so glad we can keep it in our family and share it with yours.

After a year of helping my parents host guests at their nearby Martin Manor, my wife and I learned something. If you have a special place and want to preserve it, the best thing to do is share it with others. By making people feel welcome and exceeding expectations, we’ve seen folks from all over the country have a great time here on the Martin Family Farm. And we’re having fun too!

The house was incredible, very very spacious. This house is big and lots of room. The windows on the back of the house looking out to the yard and pond is beautiful. We cooked A LOT, there were plenty of supplies. Owner is excellent as well, prior to the trip he responded almost immediately and while there we had one issue and he handled it on the spot. This property is awesome, we had such an great time with family. Cant wait for next year, we will be booking again! Thanks for a wonderful experience.

Down at Nell’s
You know sometimes when you see something you know that you are going to love it. Well this is that place. Everything you want in a vacation is here. First you notice the beautiful forest that is in the back. Then you see the ponds, paddle boat, all the outside space, the almost never ending porch, the fire pit , the balcony, the many swings, the hammocks, the fishing poles, the big turtle in the pond and I will never forget Tom Selleck. Yes. He lives there. He is a black and white cat who is very friendly and waits at the sliding door and then leads you to his food bowl. I looked forward to seeing him everyday as much as he loved the few morsels of food that I would give him. Only a few though as he is chubby. The two horses in front are fun to visit and bring carrots. They are very gentle and take the carrots right off your open hand. Simply clap your hands and over to you they will come. The accommodations in the house will suit your needs too. Very comfortable and lots of room. We used the grill and cooked in the kitchen. Everything that you need is provided.
