20 Kentucky Lake Cabins Perfect for Summer

Kentucky Lake is one of the largest man-made lakes in the eastern United States, stretching 184 miles from Gilbertsville, Kentucky to Pickwick Dam in Tennessee. But enough about facts – what is there to do? This lake is perfect for all things water including fishing and recreational boating, and of course, renting one of the many Kentucky Lake cabins for that true Kentucky summer experience.

The Kentucky Lake is enjoyed by many not just because of its large size but also because it is a part of the Great Loop – a waterway circling the Eastern United States. Wanting to explore the quieter side of the lake? Try the east side. It is a more “chill vibe” due to the shore being the edge of the Land Between the Lakes National Recreation Area

Ready to hit the water? A ride to Kentucky Lake from Louisville, Kentucky is a little under 4 hours, and close to the charming town of Murray. There are so many different options of lakefront views, cozy cabins, and private scenic spots to explore. If you are for something other than the Kentucky Lake – check out this post about all things lakes in Kentucky. For now, though, let’s explore the Kentucky Lake scene!
