Beautiful area with Lake Barkley and LBL nearby with wonderful activities and sights. Good food served at the Lodge. The indoor pool is a huge plus for the entire family. The overall condition of the Lodge was a disappointment with musty smell in room, mildew around the bathtub and spider webs everywhere!

Staff was polite and helpful. The view from the rooms is wonderful. The room I was in had two queen size beds. The beds were clean and very comfortable. The lodge was built in 1966 and could use some updates.
