“Great, simple getaway cabins”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 21, 2014 via mobile

Stayed in a cabin for a long weekend with girlfriends. Nothing fancy but very comfortable beds, adequately sized rooms, furnishings and beautiful setting with lake view off back porch. Kitchen supplies were basic so bring favorite implements. Housekeeping staff went out of their way to be helpful!

Sometimes you just need a getaway. This is a great place to go during the off season. The lake was not crowded the park was not crowded food was good.Clean cabin and grounds. Cookout area well maintained. Going back next time we need a getaway.

Room Tip: We like the cabins for their privacy and the convenience of being able to eat when we want. and not...

Nice Lodge with a great pool area! Great buffet, too!! Plenty of parking if towing a boat to Lake Cumberland. Beautiful views and helpful staff. Clean and comfortable. Definitely recommend and would definitely stay here again.

Beautiful motorcycle drive. There are49 turns in 4 miles. I called it the little dragons tail. The hotel front desk people leave a lot of room for learning hospitality. But the view from the dinning room is beautiful. Breakfast buffet is always the same thing as is the dinner buffet with an exception of one thing changing. we bought the package of two nights with one lunch two breakfast and two dinners. You save a little doing it that way. However, you eat the same thing and that can get boring. The pool was nice, but could use a little more chlorine. The hot tun is about 100 degree we prefer to have it closer to the 120 mark, They have a small game room. pool is $2 a game best table is one close to the vending machine. The one close to the video games tends to take money. The ping pong balls or hockey balls are .50 each. the views from the hotel balconies are obstructed by over grown trees and brush. If they would cut back the trees and clear brush the view would be magnificent! Close to the marina to take a stroll down, there was a boat show the weekend we went. Trip to liberty worth it. We went for the apple pie festival, YUM. Also to see the liberty bell. If you go to the middle of town where the military memorial is take a right at the street in front of it. It is down on left about 2 blocks.

Room Tip: Do not get one with inside corridors to the room, it is across from pool and elevator, can get a lit...

Room was large, beds were comfortable and it was very quiet! Enjoyed sitting on the porch overlooking the woods and the lake. Lots of towels, coffee maker, iron & ironing board and the ice machine was near by. Bathroom tile grout needs cleaning and the bathroom door needs to be
repainted, otherwise the room was fine. We took our meals at the buffet; it was average steam table foods but reasonably priced.

We stayed at the "old" resort, Pumpkin Creek the 1st weekend of August 2013. There are no elevators in this Lodge, which did not bother us, but if you cannot handle stairs tell the staff so you will be housed on the main floor. Must check in at the main lodge as Pumpkin Creek is not staffed. It is remote and very quiet. Our room, on the top floor, had a balcony that was among the tree tops. Very nice room with a kitchenette and La-Z-Boy furniture. Would stay again, but will take our own boat next time since the Marina closes at 5 and we like to boat in the evening.

We stayed Labor Day week. We stayed in room 208 and the view was wonderful, the room was very clean. The staff was very friendly and polite. And we just love Betty. She helped us with check in. The restaurant staff was wonderful. So was the staff at the Marnia. We rented a "Funtoon" for two days. If you go out on a boat you have to go see "76 Falls" It is over by Grider Hill. We will go back next year on vacation. We were very pleased. And don't forget to take your left over rolls from dinner to feed the racoons:)

Room Tip: Stay on the 2nd floor the views are better.
