We recently stayed here for a little weekend getaway for our anniversary. This was our first stay at the lodge and we were pleasantly surprised. Our room was nice...clean and comfy bed. All of the staff were so nice. We enjoyed the hiking and walking trails offered as well as the pedal boat we rented to use on the lake.... More

We stayed in the furthest cabin from the lodge, a 2 bedroom. (When booking on line, select 2Br Cottage, 4Dbl, Lake - as we felt this was one of the best for a couple of reasons). Our reservations were for April 11, 12 and 13 of 2014. There were several events going on while during our stay, we were there... More

Dated, and it seems the state hasn't paid very much attention to it in the last few years, the bathroom door (Room 207) was hard to close and didn't lock. Outdoor patio is unusable, but the window works just fine. Continental breakfast comes included. Campers however are blocked from some amenities such as the pool. Internet was finicky and at... More

My husband and I recently spent the night in a one bedroom cottage for a little winter getaway. Sad to say no fireplace in this one, but there are other cottages with fireplaces that were already rented. I must say, the staff was quite friendly as was our experience from visiting the state park a couple of years before, so... More

We stayed for three nights and our cabin was clean and ready for check in. The staff was always smiling, answered any questions we had about local attractions. Lots of wildlife and beautiful views. Will stay again.

We spent 4 nights in a cabin at Pennyrile State Forest and had great time. The cabin was a 2 bedroom with 1 bath and a small but complete kitchen. There is a good golf course that we played and a lodge that served either off the menu or a buffet. We ate off the buffet the 3 meals that... More

This little lake & lodge, perched high above its banks, are truly gems of W KY's natural scene. About 20' from Dawson Springs, & about 40' from Madisonville, my former home of 6 yrs, the creek-fed lake is still large enough for canoes, swimming, & fishing. There's a beach w/ rentable boats & numerous nature trails. There are also very... More

My husband and I stayed in a lakeside cabin for three nights, and it's a good thing the cabin was so comfortable because it rained the whole time---we cooked, played cards and scrabble, and caught up on reading, but were unable to swim (pool and beach were open) or even hike. Our cabin was very large with a separate bedroom,... More

The Pennyrile Lodge was wonderful! It was very clean and has a great view of the lake. The room was clean and had a balcony that overlooked the lake. The food in the restaurant was pricey and not that great. The staff was very friendly and helpful. Pets were welcome. We were there for the trails and did enjoy them... More

Good value, well maintained, clean, quiet. Called ahead 30 min for a room, April 2013. Would visit again. Restaurant staff pretty slow, but friendly and convenient. Front desk staff organized and welcoming.
