This home will provides that warm, fuzzy feeling of going to grandma's house. Gather around the fire pit, sharing old stories and fond memories with your family. The rolling creek, coupled with an occasional croaking frog and crickets chirping, in the background provides a beautiful backdrop for your stay.
Relax on the screened-in porch, sitting on rocking chairs with your first cup of coffee in the morning. Or relax the evening away in the seven to eight-person hot tub, nestled on the edge of the forest.

Explore nearby Daniel Boone National Forest and the Big South Fork National Recreation Area, including one of the highest elevations in Kentucky including some of the best-kept-secret hiking, camping and natural outdoor wonder in the entire country. Frankly, it's gorgeous down here and there aren't that many visitors to the park service areas.
Day trips are aplenty. Just 25 miles to the famous Cumberland Falls, including the full-moon-induced moonbow (the only one in the northern hemisphere), horseback riding, whitewater rafting, airplane rides and more - all within a short radius. Two hours away is Mammoth Cave National Park with year-round comfortable underground caves - open all year-round except Christmas Day. Renting a boat - from pontoon to ski - is a great family and/or friend activity on the very nearby Lake Cumberland. Burnside Marina is about 20 minutes away and is one of the best reasons for visiting. If you bring your own boat, Lake Cumberland Resort has its own boat ramp into the South Fork and is just 3 minutes from the cabin's front stoop.
Golfing is fantastic at the newly re-designed 18-hole General Burnside State Park golf course - just 15 minutes away. Lee's Ford, another great golf course, is 30 minutes away on the newly-completed Ky. State Route 914 bypass.
The resort itself has its own convenience store, on-site maintenance and 24-hour patrolling security, plus the whole community is gated. The small town of Somerset (pop. 11,000) has it's own indoor shopping mall, plenty of restaurants, an airport, specialty shops, flea markets, major retailers and a major hospital, friendly folks and much, much more.
