“Love Pine Mountain State Park”
Reviewed January 31, 2013

My family and I stayed at Pine Mountain State Park December 14 and 15th in a two bedroom cabin. As always had a wonderful experience. We only live about 25 minutes from the park so it is a place we visit when we want to relax! You don't always have to drive far to have a vacation. It is always clean and comfortable, we never have to worry about that.

I am writing as a true fan of Ky State Parks, we have been coming here to Pine Mtn. State Park Lodge for a few years now. The folks here are very nice, however, the important essentials of the resort are falling off. Lets face it, the most important things at any hotel are the bed and the shower! The beds here are ridiculous....they are cheap and hard as a brick. The water pressure and temperature control in the showers/bath are non-existent. The simple things such as carpet and bedding/curtains need a serious cleaing or total update. Flat screen TV's while not a must, would be an upgrade and arent that expensive anymore. Internet connectivity is poor and could be upgraded cheaply...The lodge just needs a few minor upgrades.....and this would be wonderful again! I am in room 243...if they offer you this room, just ask if the mattresses have been changed and if the water problems have been fixed. Man, what a missed opportunity for my state to present a crown jewel resort....I am going to travel more state parks in the coming year, I hope this isnt the new standard.

Room Tip: make sure you bring your own food and snacks, the closest food (besides dining room) is about 5 or 6...

We recently had out family reunion here at this park. We rented about five cottages and spread them out among our family. They were very comfortable and very suitable for our event. I stayed in the main cottage that had a big room for gathering and all the kitchen facilitues. Everything we needed was ther for us. The prices were good and the rooms were very clean and well kept. The park itself is very nice. We went on two hikes that gave taste of the beauty of southeast Kentucky. Highly recommended for anyone wanting to stay away from all the hustle and bustle of city life.

Room Tip: Cottage 290 was the one we stayed in. Its spacious for two families with two bedrooms and two baths...

This beautiful State resort sets high up on Pine Mountain, but definitely worth the drive. Nice rooms, good restaurant onsite, reasonable prices and a beautiful view while dining. Drove around the park through pine mountain lovely things to see. if you like to golf they have it on the ground at the foot of the mountain. Just a short drive takes you to Cumberland Gap National Historical Park, at the top a must see view!! We enjoyed this park very much!

And will come back here again. Like most park lodges it was not posh. But the beauty and the solitude make it a great place to stay. We walked 2 of the short local trails and they were very pretty. The view from the lodge rooms is very pretty. The food is good though not spsctacular. Finally staff is nice nd helpful.

We had intended to stay a couple of nights, play golf, do some walking and exploring but it rained continuously the first day and there was a 100% chance of rain the next so only stayed one night.

But was worth it. We stayed in Cabin 217 which was nicely placed in the woods with the nearest cabin 100' or more away. Very private and secluded. The only downside is that it was necessary to carry luggage about 50' from the parking area to the cabin but it was worth the effort.

The cabin was a large one bedroom affair with a sleeper sofa in the living room. The living room was large. In addition to the sleeper sofa there were two easy chairs, several end tables and a large table that held the TV. Amazingly there were lots and lots of cable TV channels which was good because the rain kept us indoors during the afternoon we arrived. This area also had a very large fireplace with plenty of wood stored outside. However there was no kindling or fire starter, but it was really too warm for a fire anyway.

The kitchen was fully equipped with full size appliances and a table for 4. But it would have been quite tight for 4 people to eat at the table. The bath was large and well furnished. The bedroom was also large and the bed comfortable.

The main lodge was rather motel looking from the outside but it did have large great room with fireplace. We had breakfast in the lodge and the view from the dining room was worth the price of the meal, especially on this rainy morning with the fog ebbing and flowing. Quite spectacular. And the food was good too.

All areas - in our cabin, the roads, the lodge, etc. were all very well maintained and clean.

We did have cell phone coverage in our cabin but no wifi for a computer link. Wifi was available in the main lodge. The only recommendation I have is that some type of booklet be prepared with a list of park activities and things to see, and a list of procedures. For example, apparently you are to put any linens you want replaced in a trash can on the porch but this is not explained any where nor was it mentioned when we checked in.

We are already planning to return to this rustic, secluded but modern park. It is well worth the few miles drive up the mountain to enjoy an almost hidden getaway.

Room Tip: Cabins 216 and 217 are near each other (100' or so) but pretty well isolated. Cabins 218-220 (I...

I truly enjoy visiting Pine Mountain, but this time wasn't so good. I had the unfortunate experience of having my car broken into and my purse stolen. So please, don't leave valuables in your vehicle.
