My husband and I were pleased with this little spot. For the price, you couldn't ask for a better place to stay. The cottage is definitely not top of the line, but worth what you pay for. The staff are awesome, and very accommodating. If you're looking for a place to get away for half the price of the other... More

Aurora Kentucky Lake Cottages was a really great place for what we needed for our large family. Dave and Jaymi are the onsite owners and were great hosts. We will stay there again next year. The staff was very responsive to our needs and service was very consistent and reliable. When checking out Dave gave us a tour of a... More

We agree with all the comments that the owner and staff were very friendly. They were very accommodating to give us fresh linens, toilet paper, and garbage bags as needed. I'm struggling with what words to use to describe the condition of the resort and cottages, though. I want to give an honest review for any other families that are... More

Owners are very nice, but don't expect it to look like pictures. Needs a ton of work. Only means of heat was small space heater. Would hate to list everything that needs repairing. There are better places than this for price.

Hello - we're certainly sorry you didn't enjoy your stay at our place. It is indeed an older resort, but we certainly do not agree with your definition. You're right that the pictures are outdated and need replaced, because we have spent thousands of dollars replacing furniture, carpeting and such. The space heaters have been used here since the place... More

We have stayed here for several years in the spring and fall to crappie fish on beautiful ky lake. Dave has always taken great care of our party treating us like family!! We really appreciate Dave and Jaymi and their staff, they are always open to any questions or suggestions we have. Would recommend this resort to anyone.

We have stayed at the Aurora Kentucky Lake Cottages several times over the past two years while riding the trails at Turkey Bay OHV park. The location is perfect as it is the closest resort to Turkey Bay. This time several couples joined us and enjoyed their stay as well. The pricing of the cottage was low if you consider... More

We just returned from a weekend here and it was great. We stayed in one of the motel rooms for this visit. But, Dave, the owner, took us around the facility and showed us different cottages and options for our vacation for next year. This place is quiet, comfortable and relaxing. There are plenty of things for kids and if... More

We stayed two nights in September 2014 while we were offroading at the Turkey Bay OHV park at Land Between the lakes. It was about ten minutes from the park. They had plenty of parking, enough for trucks with trailers even. The cottages were very basic, but had everything you would need. Fridge, stove, microwave, a new flat screen (which... More

First impressions are everything and if management can't make the office look inviting, it doesn't bode well for the individual cabins. Half of the porch is in good shape but the other half is beat up. For example, the porch has been recently painted but the beautiful coral rose bush to the right of the front door is in dire...

Hello. Thank you for taking the time to write a review. We, like most “Mom & Pop” places, are over-worked and under-staffed. However, this week we have hired new on-site managers to live on the premises. Hopefully this will help address a few of the issues you mention.
