The Hemlock Lodge in the Natural Bridge State Park was the perfect place for our long-weekend mini-vacation! We were pleasantly surprised at the value we received. The lodge was built into the mountain, so all the rooms have private balconies overlooking the beautiful pool further down the mountain. Our room was clean and pleasant, and the beds were reasonably comfortable;... More

We wanted to get a away for a few days, quick decision to choose Hemlock as the local. Have to admit, this is a very nice hotel, with great staff and delicious food, fair pricing. We went ahead of the summer rush so our view may be tainted ( no traffic, no swarm of people) Went in early June. Lots... More

Excellent staff...Excellent food.....Just a very nice hotel. It was a week get away and have to say one of the better trips we have taken in years. Drove down from Cincinnati to get away from all the blaa of summer, only two hours away!

Room was fine. First one had a leak. They second one still had the maids in room cleaning. So we left bags in car and explored. Best pool I have seen at a state park lodge. Great family time. Restaurant food was average at best. But sadly what I will remember is being hot and tired from hours of hiking... More

Great place to stay, quiet, lots of hiking trails, restaurant on site. Private balcony with a great view. Reasonably priced. Very friendly staff. Restaurant menu included catfish and hushpuppies or a buffet if you preferred.

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.
