We like being at the lake. In our case, "the lake" means Kentucky Lake. It's one of the largest man-made lakes around. The longer we've lived in Murray, the more summer days we've spent at the lake. My favorite thing is tubing behind a jet ski. My husband likes to fish, and my kids are liking reeling in catfish and blue gill these days. We like gathering lots of friends on a pontoon boat and floating around in the water.
During these past summer days, I've dreamed of a lake house. The city girl in me loves living in town, where Kroger is close, friends are in walking distance, and the park is across my little street.
Now, I get a little of both, which really may be my dream. And I get to share with you because The Gathering Place is available for rent.
We have a three-bedroom house on Kentucky Lake. It's pretty much ideal for a family like ours. The slope down to the lake is more gradual than some of the cliff-like areas surrounding the lake, so kids can ease into the water. ("Like the beach," my almost 5-year-old girl said. Yep, like that.) It has a private dock on a bay off the main lake, which means swimming and fishing are convenient. Kentucky Lake is the Tennessee River dammed, so the water level can be changed throughout the year. The docks farther in Sugar Creek Bay don't have year-round water. Thankfully, we do.
So, as I said, there are three bedrooms. They all have lake views, thanks to doors that go out to the second floor balcony.

|This bedroom has a full-sized bed.|
|The third bedroom has a twin bed. We're hoping to add a second bed.|
Walking into the front foyer, you can go upstairs, where there are the three bedrooms as well as two of the bathrooms. The kitchen, living room, and family room are downstairs. There is another bathroom off the family room and both the living and family rooms have sofa beds.
