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 were made to work the mines. The hotel was spacious and clean the staff was awesome the pool was gorgeous Also I had the best two nights sleep then I have had in years the mattress was so comfortable. If you are there on a Friday evening Sandy even makes home cooked meals for her guests at no extra charge, . That is good old southern hospitality you wont find in any other hotel or motel. I am looking forward to going back to Stearns and I will definitely be staying at The Big South Fork Motor Lodge.
