After operating a 50-foot motor yacht as a charter business on Kentucky Lake, we realized we love the hospitality industry, but yearned for the opportunity much closer to home. In 2017, we broke ground in our "back 5" acres and laid out the plan for an amazing micro resort. The long-term plan is to host a glamping retreat of 6 cabins, a 2-acres swimming pond, and a "Club House" gathering place for family reunions.
