My son and I had a two-night stay at this lodge. As soon as we opened the door to our room, we were hit with a very strong and unpleasant odor. I would describe it as the way a nursing home smells. It was really bad. The lobby area was nice enough and we enjoyed our meals at the restaurant,... More

We went to the Hemlock Lodge and our room exceeded our expectations by a lot!! We were thinking just a simple no frills room which it was but they added extras that really made it nice. Our balcony looked out into the trees, which was awesome. We hit as many trails as we could that weekend and they keep them... More

The furnishings are good and not too outdated but the air conditioner blows out damp musty air. The intake vent looks nasty and the bathroom door frame is rusted. The WiFi takes a long time to connect and is very slow. There's no microwave or fridge in the room. Smoking is allowed on the balconies, so we couldn't use ours... More

Fortunately we stopped here and had lunch before embarking on 2/3 hours of hiking the Natural Bridge trails. Although we don't care for fried food, they had a really nice salad bar, many vegetable choices, and 3 types of cobbler desserts. It was only $9, and even less for just soup and salad. The server was very friendly, and gave... More

First of all, if you are looking for up to date amenities, this is not the place for you. However, if you are looking for a place that is air conditioned (a must in the humid summers of Kentucky) you are in luck. Hemlock Lodge is a memory of the past 'motel' feel. Complete with wood paneled walls and pictures... More

If you want to hike the challenging trails of the park, this is a great location. The pool is a 6 minute drive away. Very little information for a first time visitor. The restaurant focused on buffets. The rooms are marginally adequate, but okay for a short visit.

We very much enjoyed our stay in the lodge at Natural Bridge Resort State Park. The room was clean and comfortable and we really liked our balcony, where we relaxed and took in all the natural beauty around us. Trails are conveniently assessable right outside the lodge...certainly no lack of areas to explore! Parking is somewhat limited but the Rangers... More

The lodge was very clean and the staff was helpful. The lodge is centrally located to natural Bridge and the Red River Gorge area. the lodge is not fancy but affordable. The restaurant is simple, comfort food.

Most review written thus far are spot on. The furnishings are dated and our shower had seen better days, but the whole room was clean and the bed comfy. The best part about this hotel is its surroundings. We felt like we were IN the forest and honestly haven't stayed anywhere like it. We enjoyed sitting on our balcony, drinking... More

I've been going here since I was a toddler and just visited again with my 9 year old son. This place is absolutely incredible. Awesome staff, very quiet, incredible setting, and loads of hiking with awesome views literally right out the back door. However...if you like 5 star resorts with tons of amenities you will NOT like it here. The... More
