My family has been staying her for reunions every year for many years (30+). The quality has gone down in many ways in the last several years. We just returned from the reunion this weekend, and there were many problems with reservations. When we checked in, we were told that they were expecting the people for one of our reserved... More

Buckhorn is such a hidden treasure (up in the KY mountains)! Our extended family holds a reunion there each summer, and we love to join whenever we can! It's completely relaxing and charming. It may be a bit rustic, but there are beautiful views, great food, comfy rooms and plenty of fun things for kids to do. We love it... More

Clean room, well maintained facilities, friendly staff, free continental breakfast + yummy lodge food, a gorgeous view and all at a very affordable price! --- what more could you ask for? I would recommend Buckhorn Lake State Resort to anyone!

Buckhorn Lake State Resort is excellent place for nature lovers. Rooms are fine and comfortable with excellent view of Lake and mountains. Hotel has beautiful swimming pool. Morning View from window of room is very cool.

We stayed with a group of 20 people. The rooms were beautiful and the pool area was great. The next day we met with my class in their lecture room for discussions and reflections, and their hospitality was obvious. Check the Bollingr pride sign, and the huge elk. The view of the mountains, water, and the moon, from our rooms... More

The Buckhorn Lake State Resort is a hidden treasure in Eastern Kentucky! I spent a night at the resort and the view from the balcony was simply amazing. There was the lake sitting in the middle of mountains on both sides. The workers were friendly and very helpful. Unfortunately, the internet service is not the best, so that was a... More

The buckhorn lake resort was incredibly beautiful, and man do i want to go back. While some were disappointed with the nonapparent wifi, i was happy to take a break from the fast paced societal pressures and relax in a rural setting. the rooms were nice, and the service was great.

The view from the room was absolutely gorgeous; the placement of the resort could not be better, and the staff were incredibly hospitable and friendly. The quality of the actual rooms though, I would say was not great. The resort advertises free wifi, but you actually have to pay for it, and there's a 500MB limit. For those of you... More

Contrary to the pictures you see, this is a resort whose beauty will only hit you after a good night's rest. The rooms are not excessively spacious, but there is plenty of balcony room to stretch. The showers are a bit backwards and the wifi is impossible. However, this is a great place to cut yourself off from the hassles... More

I want to give this a higher rating, I really do. This place is set on the bank of a gorgeous lake, the rooms are nice, there is a great swimming pool and a plethora of other activities to do. The big problem is that the Wi-Fi that they offer is limited, incredibly frustrating to use, and simply did not... More
