Frequently Asked Questions

One of the Best!

My husband and I accidentally found this gem while searching for a short, weekend getaway. We decided to take a chance with it and are so glad we did. The beauty of the lake and marina is breathtaking. Our cottage was 20 feet from the lake. We sat on the deck and enjoyed the peaceful beauty all around us. The cottage came equipped with everything we needed and was super clean. In fact the only meal we ate out was at Patti’s 1880’s Settlement restaurant (which was phenomenal) because we wanted to stay at the cottage and look at the lake! This place is a must to visit and we will definitely go back…SOON!

What is there for children to do at your resort and surrounding area?
Mother Nature provides most of the entertainment at our resort and surrounding area. We offer a small private beach with picnic tables, and fire pit. We recommend wearing water shoes due to the rocky approach into the lake. Fishing gear and license are available nearby. Boats such as kayaks, fishing boats, ski boats and pontoon boats are available to rent at nearby facilities. The clean, warm water of Kentucky Lake is a great place to teach children how to swim, sail, ski or fish. Take the kids horseback riding at Wrangler’s Campground in LBL or play miniature golf at Maggie’s Jungle. The Land Between the Lakes has biking/hiking trails where you can see and enjoy an abundance of wildlife. Bikes are available to rent nearby. Take a drive through the Elk & Bison Prairie, walk through the Nature Center, canoe on Honker Lake, hike around Hematite Lake, stargaze at the LBL Planetarium, or visit the Homeplace, where life is re-created on a mid-19th century Southern farm. For a calendar of events call the LBL at 270/924-2000 or visit them on the Internet at

Family weekend

We rented 8 cottages and meeting room for our 40th anniversary. Our family was impressed with the beautiful area and cleanlines of each cottage. We have visited a few times before, and wanted to share this place with our family. The staff couldn’t be more wonderful. Each person we met with or spoke to on the phone was friendly and helpful. The meeting room and deck were perfect places for our family to gather. If you plan to travel to Kentucky, don’t miss out on the Lighthouse Landing experience… is well worth the trip!
