Convenient for Wedding Reception held on Premises

Pros: Location. Roominess
Cons: Check out time should be later
Location: Mammoth Cave is 35 minutes away. Town of Glasgow is 15 minutes away with stores and food. Barron River Lake is beautiful area.
We traveled to Scottsville area for a wedding, and the reception was at the Barren River Lake Lodge. This location is very beautiful, as is most of South Central Kentucky. The 2 bedroom/2 bath "Cottage" we stayed in was clean and roomy. There was a full kitchen with supplies which we did not use, but for those staying multiple nights this would be ideal. The only negatives were the mattress we slept in was a bit soft, and the check out requirement of 10:00 was a bit earlier than expected. Otherwise this hotel is a good value for the money.
