Own land already or considering buying?
You may have already purchased your land and just been waiting for the right time to add a beautiful rustic living space to complete it. Or you’ve been searching the Kentucky frontier for the perfect spot to add your log cabin home. Below are some considerations and recommendations for your new log cabin home location.
Considerations for Your Ideal Log Cabin Location
A. Hunting Grounds
In Kentucky, hunting is a big deal. It is no surprise that with a deer population up to 1,000,000 and 7 hunters per square mile, hunting matters to most Kentuckians. If you are one of those avid hunters, then you will want your log cabin home built in the best hunting region in the state.
So where are the best locations in the state for deer hunting?
#1. Blue Grass Region
Some of the best counties in this region for hunting include Pendleton, Shelby, Grant, and Boone.
#2. Green River Region
If you are hoping to bring home a buck, Hopkins, Hardin, Hart, Webster and Breckinridge counties offer you the best chance. The Green River Region is recognized as a trophy buck host area and its best counties for trophy bucks are Ohio, Logan, Hopkins, and Todd.
#3. Purchase Region
Christian, Graves, Trigg, Livingston, and Crittenden counties are the best for hunting, with Crittenden holding a recent history of the best buck bagging success for this region.
B. Lakefront Spots
You may enjoy the beauty and tranquility of water, if so, you may want to consider placing your log cabin home near one of the best lakes in Kentucky. Some of the best lakes in the state are the Green River Lake, the Kentucky Lake, Lake Barkley, and Lake Cumberland.
The Green River Lake is located along the Adair, Taylor, and Casey Counties. Fishing is great along this lake with abundant largemouth bass, channel catfish, muskellunge and white crappie.
The Kentucky Lake rests along the Calloway, Marshall, and Livingston counties and Lake Barkley is beside Livingston, Lyon, and Trigg Counties. Kentucky Lake has outstanding fishing especially white bass, buffalo carp, and yellow perch. Lake Barkley has some wildlife refuges offering a tranquil place to go on a walk or run.
Lake Cumberland borders Clinton, Laurel, McCreary, Pulaski, Russell and Wayne counties. Lake Cumberland is a great spot to enjoy water sports like rowing, kayaking, and rafting.
