I don't understand! Yes budgets have been cut BUT come on! Each year we stay at the lodge after Christmas for a nice getaway. Our two kids love the indoor pool and the game room is a real plus. The views from each room are beautiful and wildlife abounds. The restaurant has gotten so bad we will eat elsewhere from...

I took my three teenage boys over Thanksgiving. The views of the lake from our balcony were stunning and we saw bald eagles, heron and other amazing wildlife. The weather was stunning. There are lovely places outside to sit and relax and to hike. The staff were very friendly and kind. The Thanksgiving buffet was lovely. Because of the age...

The park is amazing and beautiful. you will find that about half of the employees have a chip on their shoulder. I have been disrespected twice by front office staff. Beware: The reservations prices advertised on the website are never honored.

We stayed here just after Labor Day, so the buildup of cobwebs and grime from the summer hadn't been cleaned up. It is a beautiful, old lodge in a great location. Don't expect anything slick or modern, they just don't make them like this anymore! The restaurant is adequate and nice to have. The servers are all very friendly and...

Thank you for your comments in regards to your most recent stay at our Lodge. During summer months the spider webs are an ongoing issue for us which we have taken preventative measures to help alleviate this for next season. We do have steps that separate each level of our lodge rooms but we do have an elevator that takes...

Went with extended family and rented one of the cabins. The cabins are nice, modern and have most of the amenities you'd want. The lodge itself is a bit dated, but still very serviceable. It's built of dark wood - there are the usual mounted animals and exhibits of local wildlife. The park's location is a plus. A short drive...

The Lodge at Lake Barkely State Resort park is likely to be a place that you will either love or hate. The lodge is simple, and the setting is gorgeous. The rooms in the lodge are outdated, but quaint and also very comfortable. They are dark, with dark wood paneling, furniture and bedding from what seems like the 1970s, but...
