Enjoy the many Antique shops around the lake (directions provided). I have met with most of the local vendors in the area, and have discovered all the trimmings for your mini vacation. Located just 2½ hours south of Cincinnati, Ohio. You can leave after work on Friday, stay till Sunday and enjoy horseback riding and cave touring at Carter Cave on Saturday. You may want to bring your own boat, jet ski, ATV, or rent from the local vendors (in season). Local vendors offer kayaks and canoes for adventure seekers. Checkout the all new "Thrillsville", go to www.thrillsville.org which provides a state of the art climbing facility, kayaking in underground caverns and off-road adventures in one of 9 hummers. (we provide directions from cabin to the facility).
We rented a pontoon for a day. It took us nearly two hours to reach the other side of the lake. My kids enjoy tubing and fishing. My wife enjoys the hiking trails and creeks in the forest. There are several boat ramps for the boat enthusiast. You will especially like the White Sulpher ATV trails, they are safe yet challenging, and among the top trails in Kentucky. "Torrent Falls Climbing Adventure" offers safe rock climbing for children and adults. Visit www.torrentfalls.comfor more information.
I have directions from the cabin to each adventure site. I also have the phone numbers of each of the local vendors that we send you in your "welcome packet" when you rent from us.
