Weather Conditions

Beneath the forested hills of this resort, nature - over the span of millions of years - has created luminous stone fans and draped mounds of stalactites and stalagmites.

Located just 10 minutes off I-64 in northeastern Kentucky, your guests will enjoy the comfort and convenience of guest rooms, meeting space and a restaurant all under one roof. The beautiful fieldstone lodge offers two well-appointed rooms of equal size that can be combined to accommodate large groups for meetings or special events.

An attentive staff and delicious menu selections will make a memorable difference for your next group event.

Site Features


Beneath the forested hills of this resort, nature has hidden more than 20 twisting caverns, where you'll discover a 30-foot underground waterfall, and many more surprises!
