Lake Barkley Lodge
Reviewed August 14, 2017

Our room was rustic and could have used a fridge, but other than that it was clean, well furnished and had all the amenities we needed. The staff was friendly and helpful and the view from the balcony was outstanding.

Room Tip: I found no problems with the rooms at all.

we have a small dog, & they are dog friendly,
there is a beautiful lake right out side your window/terrace if you stay at the lodge. The staff could be more friendly. & air conditioner cools but noisy/

Whoever is in charge of housekeeping should be fired as they have no idea about cleaning!! i guess if you like sleeping on sheets from prior guests you are in luck. Spit shine is what you get. Bring lots of bug and spider killer if you want to use outside deck on rooms.

Room Tip: Great views but a real pigpen

Pictures looked great but then when we got there the room was dark and dated. The patio outside our room was covered in spiders and spiderwebs that we couldnt even go out there to enjoy the view. Looked like no one had clean off that patio in years. The food was below average. They advertise bike trail access and them listed on the map from the property but they were nowhere to be found. We even asked a few workers and they had no idea. Would never go back

Dark rooms, very little maid service and not equipped for handicap at all. Beautiful view of lake but that is all the good I can say. State of KY needs to do something about the handicap situation. Parking is terrible.

Room Tip: wifi is available but really bad service

Stayed 3 nights and wasn't disappointed. It's simple and basic, but the views are gorgeous and the atmosphere is peaceful. The staff is friendly. Martha at the restaurant and Rhonda at the lounge were outstanding. It's an old structure on a lake, so it needs constant TLC. The outside of the lodge could use a good power wash, but it would likely need this constantly due to its location in the woods and by the lake. It is undergoing a two year renovation and we definitely see improvements from our stay a year ago. It's simple, and it's location is simply beautiful. We will be back.

We wanted to see the Elk and Bison Prairie on our way from Florida to Illinois and spent one night here. The lodge is solid, old and comfortable. We liked the balcony overlooking Lake Barkley, and the beds were comfortable. The on-site restaurant was excellent, and we tried both the buffet and ordering from menu, with delicious food on both options. Staff was friendly, and we loved the beautiful setting. All rooms appear to have a private view of the Lake. There was a large outdoor pool, but it was raining so we did not check that out.

This is an incredibly peaceful place.

The resort would be a complicated property to navigate if you aren't able to climb stairs, which is the reason for the four-star rating.
