Get away from it all, enjoy the lake, the view and you can even rent a stand alone cabin if you want to stay away from the hotel. Nicely appointed and all the things you would need in the cabins........wifi and cable. Boats, pontoons and supplies available closely.

The good outweighs the bad here! While the lodge is just beautiful, the rooms are in serious need of updating. Everything was clean(except the carpet), but the beds were very old and uncomfortable. The location and view is just perfect. We had an upper level room which had vaulted ceilings. The balcony was so very peaceful and private. I would...

The best thing is the beautiful scenery. There is little parking on the level of the office so we parked on the level of the rooms and used the many stairs to get to and from the restaurant. It was a busy weekend. The room had dark paneling and some indirect lighting plus a couple of lamps so the room...

While riding through Tennessee and Kentucky, I rode up to the Lodge for some lunch. This is such a beautiful place sitting in the woods on the water. The lunch buffet was a delicious salad bar and the best tenderloin I've had in some time, plus all the fixings. Great place to stay or visit and it was definitely a...

We stayed 2 nights here during my son's spring break. There are many activities available to keep you busy! There is an indoor pool & fitness area, an outdoor pool, fishing, and hiking. Those ate things you can do without even leaving the lodge. There are even more activities within a short distance. The had a small balcony with a...

I can't decide whether to rate this place poor or average. So I rated it average and will let you decide based on my comments. I guess the service we received when we had problems makes me want to go with average. Everyone who worked there was very nice.... We reserved a cabin, but upon arrival to the cabin, the...

Great place to rest and restore. No better view from rooms and restaurant in KY. Spa and fitness center are exceptional. Food in restaurant is good--always a good buffet. Addition of KY beers and spirits is especially fun!

2 of my daughters, 2 grandchildren, and son in law stayed in a recently renovated cabin at the Lake Barkley Resort state park. In recent years we as a family have made a point of taking a weekend to the area to spy some eagles and enjoy the winter outdoors. The "Eagle Weekends" sponsored by the 3 resorts around the...

This was our first time at Lake Barkley so we did not know what to expect. It is a rustic lodge in keeping with the outdoor themes of the park. It is situated right on the lake with a marina very near. The lodge has an outdoor pool and a very nice game room. There are probably easy ways to...
