We stayed in cabin #4 and we were very happy with it. It was clean and the covered porch with chairs was great! We sat on the porch and watched a storm one day and we sat out every night and enjoyed the evening. The view was fantastic...we could see the lake right out the door. The cabin was plenty... More

These are fishing cabins with a fishing dock. If your looking for fancy this is not your place. If you want a very helpful, accommodating host, clean cabin with everything you need, dock availability then check it out. Cabin was clean, mixed matched older furniture but comfortable all the same. Had read other reviews about a musty smell, which you... More

My family has stayed at the Irvin Cobb Resort for many years as part of a fishing trip for my siblings and me. Honestly, I have never cared much for it, it is very run down - especially the boat docks. But it was the one trip a year for my siblings and me and I wasn't throwing in the... More

I agree with the review given in 2009 calling this place the Bates Motel. We were going to stay for a week but canceled the next morning as the mold smell [very heavy] made my husband sick. We were told we would loose our deposit, but was worth loosing to get out of there. Very unfriendly staff, will never go... More

Very relaxing. Caught a mess of fish. Owners saved our trip by fixing our boat when we thought we might have to end our trip early. Cabins were clean. We had a great time and will definitely come back.

This was a mistake. Ants all over the kitchen area and relentless yellow jackets outside the front screen door that attacked me while unloading the car. They sprayed for the buggers and left me with the can to continue combat. Meanwhile my children and wife can't leave the place until we make a mad dash to the car. We left... More

4-21-12. I had the pleasure of fishing at Kentucky Lake this weekend. I reviewed the web site and it looked great. Wow. Pictures must have been 10 years old. This place a dump. Grass, weeds growing up everywhere. Poorly maintained. Trash just parked on the grass. I hear in it's day it was nice. No longer the case. Stains on... More

If you want to have a great time enjoying the outdoors this is the place. So much nature and fresh air. Cabins are very clean and the kitchen is equipment with everything you need. Setting on the porch and enjoying the evening or setting on a comfey chair inside reading a book. You will just love this place. Owners Susan... More

Rented 4 cabins from Susan and John on reccommendation of 2 different fishing guides. Owners were most gracious and cabins were perfect for 10 guys on fishing trip, not too fancy but clean and roomy with all utensils for cooking, etc. If you want great location right on the lake in Blood River system for great price talk to John...
