After putting an ad in the newspaper for a small farm and livable home, Bob and Nadine Jennings found the small farm they were looking for in LaRue County on Old Elizabethtown Road.

“We bought the house in 1997 and made it a bed and breakfast in 1999” said Nadine, “We had this big ol’ house and just the two of us so we decided to rent out rooms.”

When Bob retired from Nolin Electric, where he was a lineman for 45 years, the Jennings decided to build a cabin to accommodate more guests. “I’m always piddling, and I like to keep busy; I have a mind to build things so I built the first cabin.” Bob said.

When that cabin proved to not be enough, they added another cabin on their property. Each cabin sleeps 5 people.

“We had the Mennonites from Marrow Bone, Kentucky come and frame this one and we finished it up.” Bob said.

“We get a lot of people coming to visit family,” said Nadine, “But right now it is mostly hunters who are staying.”

The Jennings are from Dale Hollow where they have two more cabins they rent out.

Cabin A consists of a great room with a den, a Queen bed, a kitchen and full bath and a private bedroom and is Wheelchair accessible. Cabin B consists of two large bedrooms, a living room and a full bath. They have three bedrooms and a shared bathroom available in the house as well. They no longer offer breakfast with their lodging.
