Our boat driver was very informative about the lake's history.I was amazed to see all the beautiful... More

Needed a place to stay for a fishing trip on the Cumberland River. Perfect! Clean, comfortable, very peaceful place, enjoyed the dinner in an area with a great view. Nice crowd for dinner. Early to bed and out the door at 4 am.

The lodge exceeded my expectations, based on reviews of others. The setting on the lake is really beautiful. We loved our room (302) with a view of the lake. I appreciated the hotel honoring my quiet room request. The hotel was indeed very quiet, at least where we were staying. An elevator made it easy to get luggage to the... More

Dale Hollow is tucked away in South Central KY and North Central TN. Great facilities and the view is the most beautiful in all of KY in my opinion. Don't miss it. Camping, lodging, mini cabins. They have it all. Take a see for yourself.

Stopped by for a couple days. Always wanted to try it.. Lodge was basic but clean.. Views were gorgeous.. Most amenities like the pool were nice.. However the restaurant, which is the most advertised amenity besides the golf course, was horrible.. Not just bad but horrible.. I paid $14.50/person for a buffet that included old hot dogs, stale buns, and... More

My wife an I spent a great mini vacation at the lodge. Our room had a spectacular view of the lake, sunset and sunrise were fantastic. The rooms were clean, the buffet in the lodge was great at a reasonable price. The nature was wonderful. I am sure we will stay again.

Dale Hollow Lake Staqte Resort is out of the way. It takes a while to get there from anywhere. It is worth the drive. The views from the lodge are absolutely beautiful. The staff members are pleasant. The dining is above average. Some of the rooms do not have a good view of the lake, but the total atmoslphere is... More

We stayed 2 nights at the resort and enjoyed both tremendously. The facility offers a restaurant with off the menu and buffet which was so convenient after coming in for the day. The room was large and offered a patio/balcony to sit and watch the deer and other wildlife. Plenty of hot water but the towels were a little scratchy.... More

We have stayed at this resort a few times as we want access to the Dale Hallow St. Park marina where the boats are put in. This hotel/lodge has nice rooms, some with very pretty views overlooking the lake. It's clean, they serve food (though we did not eat this year) and the park is very pretty. They also have... More
