Not many people think about Kentucky for a vacation unless they have family or friends in the area. However, if you overlook Burnside, Kentucky, you are missing out on a lot. Burnside vacation rentals make it possible to enjoy early American history combined with a quaint lakeside town. Before Burnside house rentals and 21st-century restaurants, Burnside was filled with pioneers and the town was called Point Isabel. Though some of the Burnside cabins were built by pioneers, many for rent today are new constructions that entice vacationers to the area.
Burnside vacation rentals are on the shores of Lake Cumberland. These Burnside cabins are on the eastern side of Lake Cumberland near Daniel Boone National Forest. Several tourists use Burnside house rentals as a base for exploring this region on foot or by bike, horse or water. Motorboats are welcome on Lake Cumberland, which means waterskiing, fishing and scuba diving are available in the warmer seasons. Diver’s Den is the largest scuba center in Kentucky offering gear, dives and lessons.
Entertainment around Burnside cabins includes the 27 Twin Drive-In Theater, which takes you back into the past. They have two screens and a snack bar. Somerset Falls is 15 minutes from most Burnside vacation rentals; there, vacationers can get in a game of golf or a family picnic. Burnside house rentals have full kitchens, making it easy to have a healthy meal or picnic lunch on vacation.
