We do love staying in State lodges, and Kentucky sure does a good job. It's such a pretty setting here, and our room turned out very nice. Plus, they are VERY pet friendly here.
We booked a 2nd level room as I like the high, wood ceilings...very "lodgey". But, when we got here, there was nothing available for our entire stay, so we took a 1st level room. It was ok, but we were disappointed. We asked the check-in desk if there was any way possible they could find us a 2nd floor and RON saved the day! He told us we might have to move to another 2nd level room the next night, but as it turned out, we were able to stay. He was so nice and friendly. Actually, every single staff member we encountered was super nice. It's a very easy-going place.
NOTE to pet owners: There is a $25 charge per stay for pet-friendly rooms. However, if you choose to be in another room, you can do that, but the charge will be about $125 for the entire stay. It was worth it to us and glad we did it.
The only cons are that they don't have an on-site laundry and you have to drive all the way in to town. So, I did ours in the tub.... felt like Lucy Ricardo stomping grapes. The only other thing is that I wish they had a lounge. Most other state parks we've stayed in have a gathering place, and we missed that, especially since there were some good sporting events playing while we were there. Usually a great place to meet all different sorts of people.
Overall, a very nice golf get-a-way. AND.... every single course we played allowed us to take the poochie with us (in the basket). My little golfing buddy loved it!
