we stayed for the weekend and as a whole our trip it was good, BUT the Commonwealth of Kentucky needs to put some money into bringing the old lodge back up to shape. this is a gem of a lodge and with a little TLC it could be back to the way people expect. The deck around dining room is...

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your most recent stay. We had originally scheduled the Balcony for mid October but we are still waiting on the lumber to get started on that project.

We have stayed at this lodge before and enjoyed the location. This time we had motorcycles and ran into problems ( Yes it was my Harley).

I stayed here with some friends while on a motorcycle trip. I had stayed here a couple of years prior and kind of knew what to expect. Check in was friendly and efficient. The rooms could ust some updating. The beds were comfortable and AC worked well but noisy. Towels were very thick and fluffy. I did not use the...

Thank you for taking the time to comment on your most recent stay. We are in the process of deep cleaning all the decks to the lodge rooms and make sure they are maintained daily to keep them clean for our guests. We apologize that your deck had cobwebs and was dusty; being located right on the lake it is...

I'll begin with the good points: comfortable bed, quiet room and mostly updated bathroom. These are the reasons I rated this stay 2 stars instead of 1 star. During the second night of our stay, a mouse got into our room while we slept and got into a snack bag of sunflower seeds. I was very upset about this and...

Thank you for your comments during your most recent stay with us. We do apologize that a mouse got into your room and into a snack pack of sunflower seeds on the second night of your stay.

If you are looking for a lodge with a cabin outdoor atmosphere this is the spot. We were visiting family in Kentucky and expected more of a resort style accomodation. The furniture is very outdated and I was very shocked at all of the spider webs and bugs on patio. The of the lake and wildlife was the key selling...

Definitely geared toward the older crowd. Resort overall was ok, but needs some modernization. We were shocked that they closed the indoor pool at 2pm on labor day weekend when it is raining outside. Where is the manager?

On Sundays the Fitness Center with the indoor pool does close at 2pm but was open till 8pm the other nights throughout Labor Day Weekend. Maybe next year we can look at extended the hours a little on the Sunday that falls on Labor Day Weekend. Park Manager and Assistant Park Manager were both on duty that day and did...

The biggest thing I noticed that could have been fixed is the large amount if cobwebs and spider webs. In general, the lodge is nice with great activities and views.

We just spent a couple of days at the Lodge and it was wonderful. We had a great relaxing vacation and the lodge was the perfect place to stay to relax.

We do love staying in State lodges, and Kentucky sure does a good job. It's such a pretty setting here, and our room turned out very nice. Plus, they are VERY pet friendly here.
