"Very clean, all updated, nicely decorated, comfortable. Located at the entrance to the state park, about four miles from the State Dock. Kids loved the pool and community center. Quiet neighborhood. The wifi is run by the condo association and isn't functional from this unit. You can get internet access by the community center but there is little bandwith, though enough (I'm told) to catch Pokeman. New AC unit quietly kept us cool, and the controls were (surprisingly) easy to figure out. Laundry facilities are in the community center; old but work well, take quarters.
We stayed for two weeks. Lake Cumberland is the big attraction, and it is massive. The water is clean, clear, and incredibly warm. Other things to do include visiting the U.S. Hatchery (4 miles, and it's free), going on a short horseback ride and playing on the small miniature golf course. The restaurant at The Lure Lodge, also located in the State Park, has a fantastic view of the lake and reasonable prices. Though it has a menu, it's really a buffet place. There isn't really "fine dining" in the area. Notwithstanding what we read on the internet, the area is not "dry", though you might want to bring your supplies with you as beer and wine are extremely expensive there. I did not see any liquor for sale in stores, but there are places that sell mixed drinks. The Jamestown Tap, located at the Jamestown Dock (across the bay from the State Dock) is a fun place to eat, both inside and on the water. That was my favorite restaurant we visited.
For boat owners, there is a large ramp on the way to the State Dock to put your boat in. Trailers are not allowed on the downhill road leading to the State Dock, since there's a lot of traffic and no where to turn around. You can park your vehicle and trailer at the ramp, for free. The State Dock will rent you a slip ($25 per night for small boats) which is convenient. That $25 per night can add up, but with just me and two kids for most of the time I really didn't have a choice. Parking at the State Dock is extremely limited but there are several designated lots close by; free shuttles run all day and evening. We never waited more that a couple of minutes and frequently the shuttle was waiting for us as we were parking. If you are at the ramp, you have to call a number at the State Dock for pick up.
Also, Mammoth Cave is really awesome.
The owner was very responsive to requests and immediately returned security deposit."
