Excellent stay. The owners were very friendly and accommodating. The cottages are very conveniently located to the pool, playground, and game shelter. My son and I enjoyed shooting pool and playing air hockey in the evenings. The price was reasonable. We plan to go back again.

We had a family reunion here. This was the perfect place. Cabins were close, playground, pavilion - were right smack in the middle, which was excellent for kid wrangling... The pool was a good size and accommodated all of us..... Great Choice!

If you are going to be in the Kentucky Lake area, you have to stay with Dave and Jaymi here. It is Clean, quiet and very reasonably priced. But, be sure to book ahead. They fill up quickly. I always stay here every year when we come down and I just can't imagine staying anywhere else. Thanks for another great... More

We rented one of the motel rooms, unit #1. It had the same basic feel that I would expect from one of their cabins, very cozy, rustic and homey. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful and we will definitely stay again if we can!!
