Inside Carter Caves

Carter Caves

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. 


Cabins & Lodge Rooms
The Lewis Caveland Lodge offers 28 rooms with full amenities. Each room features a private balcony or patio overlooking the surrounding woodlands. For those looking for a more private setting, enjoy the seclusion of a beautiful two-bedroom cottage. Cottages offer modern conveniences such as automatic dishwashers and microwave ovens along with covered decks that offer scenic views of the park’s wooded hills. RESERVE NOW!
