by | Apr 30, 2015 | Travel

If you enjoy a glass or two of wine or are an oenophile, you may well be surprised that in the region known as the Houseboat Capital of the World, Lake Cumberland, a lodge can provide easy access to several reputable wineries. If wine is your pleasure or your passion, it is another reason to come enjoy what the area has to offer you. You can combine it with visits to other sites and activities to make sure everyone in the family has a good reason to remember this vacation. From houseboat rentals to hiking in State Parks to Civil War sites, Cumberland Lake has much to offer.

Stay in a Lake Cumberland Lodge

As morning breaks, you wake up and see the waters of Lake Cumberland Lake spread out before you. In the evening, you sit outside and watch the stars as they dance across the sky. The quietness and solitude surrounds you, surprising you with its depth. This is truly possible if you stay in a Lake Cumberland lodge or any of the scenic cabins offered by several companies including Lee’s Ford Resort and Marina.

Your decision to stay in a lodge or cabin or even tent makes it easy for you to prowl the countryside. You can then create your own wine trail while family members and friends head off to enjoy the various attractions, including such things as fishing, houseboating, hiking, golfing and enjoying the best of the region. This is one way to make certain everyone has a chance to do what they like, including history and art buffs. The latter can visit historical sites like Mill Springs Battlefield Museum/Visitor Center and National Cemetery. Here the Union forces won a major victory of the War Between the States in 1862.
