I stayed for the first time at the lodge back in the summer. I went back for three nights this past weekend and took my wife. We did not like the room we stayed in the first night (just because the view wasn't as good- everything else was fine. The front desk person changed us as soon as we requested... More

Lodge rooms are very dark, not much lighting, and narrow. Balcony had cob webs and needed a good cleaning. View of lake from room and restaurant great. Food is so so. Would rather stay at Lake Cumberland Park

Thank you for taking the time to post your comments on your most recent stay. We do apologize if your balcony had cob webs; housekeeping knocks those down daily and we also have our pest control company spray for spiders regularly. This winter we are expecting some room upgrades which we hope will brighten up the lodge rooms. Thank you... More

On the positive first, we ate at the lodge and the food was good. I personally had the fish and it was delicious . My husband had the philly steak and would not recommend it at all.

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.

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.
