Needed a little get away and this B & B fit the bill. In a quiet county setting, near marinas if you like boating and a very short drive to get to Land Between The Lakes recreational area in KY.

We went here to celebrate our 44th wedding anniversary. The entire property is a gardeners paradise! The main level includes full perimeter balcony, very clean (but cool in early May) swimming pool and a very nice residential Hot Tub, which was actually hot!!

My Mom and I stayed here in the Starlight Room. I've been to a number of B&B's and this far exceeded my expectations. From Ms. Patsy, Mr. James and little Maggie Mae.

After reading all the great reviews, we decided to give the Rose of the Lake a try, while visiting family in the area last Fall. When we arrived, we were not greeted by the owner like some of the other guests, because he doesn't live there. I found this odd because all the the B&B's we've visited, the owners always... More

We just stayed here February of 2016. Everyone we came into contact with was so friendly and accommodating. They provided a golf cart which we enjoyed exploring the nearby town, park and both lakes.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
Set in a quiet corner of Kentucky's Resort Village, Grand Rivers, the Rose of the Lake is a quaint and cozy little self contained resort in its own right. Lounge in the pool in the evening and watch the stars shine down on your repose. Surrounded by nature's evening sounds and the woods that surround the B & B the world melts away and you are truly in the moment.With the main house containing 5 bedrooms with private baths and the pool cottage having 2 bedrooms as well as kitchen, laundry and living area, the B & B has accommodations for groups of 1 to groups of 25 with all variations easily taken care of.Full and varied homemade breakfasts from our carefully selected recipes are served every morning for guests. They seem to be one of the highlights of everyone's stay. The kitchen is open 24 hours a day for guests full use.Each room has a 32" flat screen TV and the main gathering room has a 48" flat screen TV with 3D movies and popcorn available. Free high speed WiFi is in place and each room has a generous refrigerator for those folks who spend several days with us.Outside pool area has comfortable lounging areas, wedding gazebo, Koi pond, covered porches and open air decks as well as an outside shower and full pool bath. Kids will enjoy the water slide and the second level jumping platform as our pool is 10 feet deep. We provide a golf cart for you to use around town.As Grand Rivers is a resort village, it's surrounded by the massive lakes Kentucky Lake and Lake Barkley and at the edge of The National Forest Service's Land Between the Lakes known as LBL. The lakes have thousands of miles of shoreline and over 250,000 surface acres of water and LBL encompasses 170,000 acres of undeveloped recreational land. We like to think that we're at the front door of Central Park for the country. Grand Rivers has a sailboat resort/marina on Kentucky Lake (Lighthouse Landing) and a huge yachting marina/resort on Lake Barkley (Green Turtle Bay) all on a peninsula about 1 mile wide and 2 miles long. Our 350 residents welcome you. We want you to consider The Rose of the Lake your vacation getaway home much more than a place to rent lodging. We want you to consider it an extension of your family life and your home. We want you to ache to come back as soon as you can to relax and recharge. Come visit us once and then let us know if you feel that way. ... more   less

“We had the gentle persuasion room since we needed two queen beds. The room is close to kitchen so if the smell of cooking bothers you in the early morning after 7:00AM then this is not a good choice. The beds were very comfortable. I wish the bath tub was roomier, it was slightly on the narrower side. The view from the front porch is beautiful and I have shared a picture here.”

“Each room is named after a different type of rose. Except the room we stayed in which is called Down Under because its the basement room. If you like your privacy the down under room in the main house or one of the cabins outside”
