Lake Cumberland attractions are not sparse, we offer so many options to make this day special. Let me tell you more about them;
Start off by deciding where you want to stay. The Lake Cumberland rentals are made up of cabins and cottages, entire homes, hotel rooms, and gorgeous lake views so having to choose will definitely be the hardest decision to make. No matter where you choose, you can not go wrong. The privacy at Peaceful Valley Lake & Cabins will give you a small cabin with quaint surroundings and the most darling little pond that you can fish on or take a romantic stroll around with the one you love. You can get cozy in a hot tub at Fort Wahoo and enjoy a romantic evening alone. You can head out to the beautiful, scenic Lake Cumberland State Resort Park where you can enjoy the indoor pool and hot tub, play a round of golf, or even go for a hike through the spectacular trails they offer throughout the park. If you want to go somewhere that you don’t have to leave, Timber Pointe Resort is where you want to be, offering a warm, homemade breakfast, lunch and Dinner right outside your room, coffee, lattes, and milkshakes made to order and the sweetest little boutique, you will have a wonderful Valentine’s Day get-a-way there.
When deciding where you want to stay is checked off the to-do list, you will want to make sure you enjoy all we have to offer here in Russell County. Spend the day at Kendall Park at the Wolf Creek National Fish Hatchery or a romantic walk around their trails and even camp if you feel like making Valentine’s Day a little more adventurous. You can shop any of the small, locally owned boutiques that call us home such as Pretty Creekside Boutique, K&A Clothesline, and PRETTY Boutique, just to name a few. Walk the old time main street in the heart of Russell County and visit the antique shops and find treasures you can keep to remember us. The Laker Lanes Bowling Alley is open and would be so fun to have a bowling date with a milkshake! Most people don’t go out to watch movies anymore with Netflix and Prime but YOU can. Enjoy or Key Twin Cinema and take it back a few years, sit down and enjoy the big screen and a maybe you will get lucky and get to hold hands!
After a long day enjoying each other, spend the evening having some fun and head on over to a local Lake Cumberland Dining legend, Mammy Frog’s Diner to get the most famous and not to mention delicious soft serve ice cream you’ll ever eat.
