My friend and I chose to stay here on our trip to Mammoth Cave. I’m so glad we did. The lodge is beautiful and inviting. The room was great, very clean and comfy. The view from our balcony of the lake was beautiful. The food was delicious!

The first Saturday in February is Buffalo Night at the lodge. It is a buffet of several types of dishes made with buffalo. It is absolutely delicious! The only downside is the wait. It is so popular that you may have to wait an hour or more to be seated, but it is worth it.

The natural environment was very nice. Access to rooms at the lodge was difficult. First or third floor rooms require using stairs to manage luggage of just go anywhere. It was extremely difficult for our family who has 4 handicapped members. The second floor is on the parking

Omg, they have a BAR! We didn't visit it because we came "prepared." The room was a little musty and dated but clean. Gorgeous lake and marina. We would like to go back during boating season. Ugh... the restuarant is closed from 10-11 AM! That is when "prepared" people

Hello and thank you for your question. We have many families that do rent one of our smaller meeting rooms for everyone to gather. Depending on the size of the room, there is a charge. We do have two on the lower level of the lodge that open adjacent to our outdoor pool area. We provide catering inside our lodge/meeting rooms; however, if you were in one of the meeting rooms on the lower level, the outside seating/eating area maybe utilized. Our restaurant offers small, private dining options as well. There are also many picnic shelters located on our resort park. For more information and pricing, please call 800-325-0057 and speak with our group sales department. Thanks again and we look forward to having you as our guest!

"Request a room facing the lake and away from the mail lodge."
"Don't stay here!"
"Handicapped need to ask for parking lot level as there are no elevators to upper or lower floor."
"All of the rooms overlook the lake. Best choice is second floor as this is parking and lobby/restaurant level."
"Camp site on the perimeter"
