Entering our room we were surprised how nice it was for the reasonable price. Nice, Clean, great location, the view was unbelievable. Check in was a breeze even though we were early, no problem. Would recommend for a nice get away.

This lodge is part of the state park, and it is actually very nice. The staff is fantastic and extremely nice. The room was very clean and comfortable. We had a nice balcony with a great view. The best part about this lodge is the location. You can walk out of your room onto one of the natural bridge trail... More

Although the lodge is very nice, it is somewhat dated. However, the views surrounding it are wonderful and the hiking is not to be beat in this part of the country! Even though most people want to see Natural Bridge, don't neglect the other trails in the Natural Bridge State Park and the Clifty Wilderness.

The lodge itself is a trek uphill and parking can be limited and tricky, but it's an excellent place to grab a meal before or after a day of hiking. I've found the menu to be extensive at lunch and dinner, unlike some other state park dining rooms, and of course breakfasts are always great. Kentucky is a southern state... More

I recently stayed in a 1Bdrm cottage at Natural Bridge. My accommodations were clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly and helpful. This park is located in the Daniel Boone National Forest, and the hiking is fantastic! I hope to return for another winter hiking adventure soon.

Clean, comfortable rooms. Beautiful scenery right outside your private balcony. Wish we could visit after a snowfall. Staff so friendly, restaurant is very good with many options. Hiking and beauty all around must not be missed. Red river gorge breath taking.

We just stayed at the lodge this weekend and the rooms are clean, but nothing special. The bathroom could be more updated. But, the main reason I am leaving a comment is on the service...9 out of 10 employees were awesome....one in particular. Jessica, in the restaurant was sooo gracious and sweet. I wish I knew the name of the... More

The lodge is very comfortable. Rooms are large, beds are comfortable and the surroundings are glorious! You can nitpick for small failings in the accomodations, but why bother. You won't find such comfort anywhere else in the area. The food is good.

Spent 5 nights there while doing the Natural Bridge/Red River Gorge area. Had a room on the second floor overlooking the pool/river areas. Pool was drained due to being late in the season. River was low but flowing. Our room was comfortable but did have a tired look about it. The beds were comfortable. The room has the look of... More

This hotel is right in the middle of Natural Bridge State Resort Park. It is charming, rustic and beautiful. The views are amazing. The restaurant has good food, good service and more wonderful views.
