I had heard of Cumberland Falls during a previous trip through this part of Kentucky, and wanted to stay somewhere close enough to be able to go to the park and view the river and falls. During a full moon on a clear night the falls create a "moonbow" effect, the only one in the USA to do so, and only one of two falls in the world to do so, the other being in Africa. We arrived at the Cumberland Inn early in the afternoon, were able to have a delicious lunch in their lovely dining room just off the lobby, and were able to get in to our assigned room immediately. The facility is absolutely lovely and impressive in quality appointments and decor, the room spacious and beds very comfortable. The hotel has students from adjacent Cumberland College working in various positions as a part of their studies in hotel management. The campus is just blocks away and is beautifully landscaped with buildings that appear brand new. The college is a small liberal arts college with about 3300 students. The Inn is easily visible and accessible from the Interstate. Parking spaces are plentiful in front of the Inn and are well lighted . We stayed in the wing housing the large swimming pool and were sorry that our swim suits were not easily reached, so we did not take a dip. Across the parking lot on the second story of another wing, there is an interesting museum housing a large collection of crosses of all sizes and materials. We so enjoyed our one night stay that we plan to visit again. The rates were reasonable and the military discount was welcomed.
