We stayed in cabin #9, which is smaller but fine for two adults. There was plenty of parking, and the cabin was well stocked with household necessities. Water pressure was great with plenty of hot water. The a/c was cold. I really appreciated the apartment sized fridge and full-sized residential double sinks and full sized microwave. The solar heated swimming pool was excellent and they were adding new landscaping while we were there. The owner, Dave, filled me in on the resort’ history—some of the cabins were floated to Aurora when the lakes were impounded. The resort does have a relaxing mid century, rustic feel to i with pretty good Wi-Fi. You’re just minutes from hundreds of miles of trails, activities and water at Land Between the Lakes. I hope to make many more vacation memories at Aurora Kentucky Lake Cottages in the future.

My family of four stayed here last year in May of 2022 to attend a graduation ceremony at Murray State University. Both of my kids are college aged, and the four of us had a blast staying here. David and Jayme did a fantastic job of keeping the place clean and meeting any need that we had. My kids, even at their ages, loved that there was an area where they could play some games outside, and we all liked the "retro / throwback" aspect of this place as we were able to grill out and meet other families there doing the same. The campus is an easy 15 minute or so drive from the cottages, and there are other activities close by such as kayaking and canoeing. The restaurants close by are awesome as well. There are plenty of picnic tables and chairs for outside sitting and lounging as well as fire pits. Overall, we had a relaxing, laid-back stay, and we would gladly stay here again. Thanks so much David and Jayme!

We wanted something really close to Kentucky Lake, and this place was perfect. 5 minute drive we were in the LBL area. Awesome. The cottage was very clean, and well maintained. And the owner was very pleasant and courteous. When we come back to the recreation area we will definitely make sure our stay is at Kentucky Lake Cottages.

I was in town on business and decided to stay at this location. When I checked in I met one of the owners who was very nice and make me feel welcome. When I got to my assigned cabin or room, at first I was disappointed. I expected something more modern. The fishing cabins had been around for a while and not really updated. But, the room was very clean, it had two beds, stove, fridge, sink and a table with chairs. What more do you need. I was there for 4 nights and enjoyed my stay. I guess the old saying that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover is true. Warning, if you have Verizon cell service, you may have to stand on one leg and raise the opposite are to get a signal.....LOL

We booked this for just the weekend and it was worth every penny! The one we stayed in was very clean. And neatly set up. Like a mini cabin. Everyone was super sweet and courteous! They made sure we had all that we needed!

Owners were super nice and helpful and worked to get us checked in for an early arrival. Everything was very clean and had all the necessary amenities. Nice fire pit with chairs, picnic table on the porch, and BBQ grill. There was plenty of room to park our Trucks, Trailers, & UTV's. The beds were exceptionally comfortable as well as nice couch and recliner. Would've given a 5 star review but the place is aging and could use a little work, but overall I would definitely recommend staying here!
