Prestonsburg, Kentucky
Reviewed 24 January 2017

Stayed here for the first time in December of 2016 and was so satisfied with the clean rooms, the very friendly staff. Have already booked again for a weekend in JAN 2017 and a full week in December 2017. Steve Buckley Prestonsburg, Ky

Nice quiet cottages with plenty of room to move around. Big kitchens for everyone to eat in. New appliances in the kitchens. Only complaint would be not much room for the toilet in the bathroom, but I could deal with that. Will definitely be back for another stay.

We stayed in cabin #25 over Labor Day weekend, which is an older trailer, which we were informed before booking that it was nothing fancy. We were able to arrive after hours and check in/pay the next morning. There was ample parking for vehiclrs and our boat. Everything worked and we were able to sleep a lot of people comfortably....

Reviewed 12 September 2016 via mobile

We stayed here over Labor Day weekend. When I called the only cabin big enough to reserve for what I was wanting was mobile home 24. When I talked to Jamie she said up front on the phone that it was a fisherman cabin and that a lot of ladies were not happy in it. I asked if the air...

Jamie, thank you for taking the time to write your review. You were actually in Mobile Home #25, which is indeed usually reserved by our hunters and fishermen that like lots of bedrooms, but not as "plush" as our cottages. So glad you liked Cottage #7 -- give us a call earlier next time and we'd love to have you...

The pictures do not reflect the condition of this place. We stayed in house trailer 24. We rented this because we had 6 people in our group. I have stayed in some really bad places over the course of my lifetime and world travel. This place should be Condemned! The whole place stunk to no end. They place air freshers...

Wow. We are shocked by your scathing "review". We wouldn't even respond except that we want people to be able to hear what we have to say as well. First of all, I took the pictures you see on our web site THIS YEAR. They are not old but rightfully depict what we have to offer. We use air fresheners...

My family and I just spent a long weekend in one of the mobile home units. Last bit of fun before school starts. We had a wonderful time and the unit was nice, plenty of room for a family of 5 and a couple of quests from time to time. We had a minor issue and it was repaired immediately....

Unfortunately the whole cabin had a terribile pee smell and I couldn't sleep because of that. The bathroom was dirty, with pee stains. The funiture was very nice, it could have been a perfect stay but the price was way too high for what you get. The surroundings were quiet and the position good. Jaymie is super nice and kind....

We are so sorry you had a bad experience here with us. The smell in that cottage was from the carpets that had just been cleaned. Apparently not enough of the water was extracted - when that happens, sometimes we can get a temporary bad smell. We have passed on your concerns regarding the bathroom to housekeeping. It was certainly...

AWESOME!!!!! We spent 10 days in cottage 6 this summer and let me tell you, our family had a great stay.

We came for a long weekend with friends and our kids before everyone has to head back to school. We booked a place at the cottages because it was cost effective and close to everything we wanted to do. Given the cost per night, we didn't expect perfection, but we also didn't expect to find a used diabetic needle stick...

Ashley, I am so sorry you had a negative experience at our resort. Contrary to what you said, we were concerned that you said you were stuck with a needle - you were never told not to worry about it by either of us. Dave spent considerable time researching what would need to be done, but you had already done...
