Why is it a perfect getaway?

It’s peaceful atop the peninsula where the Woodson Bend Resort is situated. It has beautiful views and nature all around, including deer. Because most owners have golf carts, vehicle traffic is very minimal and the streets are safe for long walks or playing games outside with the kids.

The storms weren’t all bad. They caused pretty waterfalls along the cliffs. Lake Cumberland, KY

Beware of swimming after a storm.

When we went, there was a lot of debris in the water, logs and other floating items, from a storm a few days before. Two travelers in our party experienced skin irritation post-trip. I would not recommend swimming if there has been a recent storm due to the debris and possible run-off that may make swimming hazardous.
