Our Family stayed here for three days during July of this year and found the overall lodge to be very beautiful. It rained a lot while we were here so we used the lodge as home base and went to other cities and attractions. I would definitely go onto The Land Between the Lakes while staying here. Very scenic and the buffaloes are great for a photo op. Nearby Cadiz is also a great place to visit if one is into antiques.
As far as the lodge, the restaurant has good food especially for breakfast. The lodge pool is very nice and they also have a detached workout facilities with a very nice indoor pool and jacuzzi. The game room was fun and inexpensive.
We found the prices for boat rental to be pretty much outside of our family budget. I thought they would offer choices of different size boats but it is only one type of boat and again pretty expensive.
Downside is that the front desk is horribly slow. There were 3 people up front but only two computers and the worst check in of all the resorts we went to in Kentucky. If one has all of their paperwork in order it will still take 15 minutes or more to get checked in. Without everything in order it was taking well over 45 minutes per family. Totally insane.
