My wife and I stayed here for two nights and the owner made sure we had everything we needed. The first night we came in from eating and the owner had left a treat on our bedside table for a night snack. The pool is beautiful with a full outdoor kitchen along side of it. Great location and the owner... More

This motel's owner, Sandy, is by far the most wonderful person in the motel industry! She is more than caring. She will check with you before you visit to make certain you will find her motel easily. This time my older son, daughter-in-law, and grandson came along! We stayed right next to each other and had a wonderful time. This... More

My family and I absolutely enjoyed our visit to Stearns Ky. Even though all the national parks were shut down we still learned a lot of history because of Sandy the owner of Big South Fork Motor Lodge, She told us so much about coal mining and how miners were paid and why children as young as 8 years old...

This was our first time staying at the Big South Fork Motor Lodge and I absolutely love it. This past weekend was our family reunion in Kentucky. Since we have family members coming from all over, we all meet and stay at the same hotel for the weekend. This year the family decided to try a different hotel in Stearns.... More

When checking in my wife was told while I was filling out the form that we were in "the lady room." I heard this and just assumed it meant the room was at a more finicky standard of cleanliness. Oh boy was I in for a surprise. We entered the slightly perfumed smelling room and when my wife turned to... More

Wonderfully charming place to stay! My partner and I stayed here 04/17-19/2013. The owner Sandy and her staff took excellent care of us while we stayed here. While we stayed here we visited Cumberland Falls,The Yamacra River, Blue Heron Coal Camp and The Natural Arch. We just wanted somewhere to get a way and have a 3 day vacation. We... More

I recently stayed for the third time at this wonderfully quaint and friendly lodge. I will continue to stay here. My next trip will be in June. I so look forward to the nightly sweet treat, the cleanliness, and quiet stays I always have. The owners make me feel so very special each and every time! I love this place.

This is my second trip to this wonderful lodge! It is everything I expected and more. The rooms are spotless and the owner is absolutely the best. I wouldn't stay anywhere else! I sleep the best I have here than ever before. Every evening there is an extremely tasty homemade dessert! Tonight I am going to devour a peach cobbler... More

Being former Stearns residents for years and years, we felt we needed to let people know about this property. We have been staying at this property for over 15 years and were very disappointed our last stay. We were there over the Labor Day weekend. The rooms were non-smoking but the odor in two of the rooms had a really... More
