Beautiful setting and nice staff. Cottage is dated and in subpar condition. First unit A/C was "frozen".; They immediately were able to switch S2 the cottage next door. However, this was an extremely damp cottage with two separate dehumidifiers although both were not running because they were full. The iron in the unit didn't work and the microwave was broken and had to be replaced while we were there. Very nice place with need for attention.

We love staying here! It is so relaxing! The restaurant has an amazing buffet and the staff is there to serve! Excellent place to stay and have a place to eat without having to drive all over the place! The marina is close also with a neat place to eat out on the water! We will be back to Barkley Lodge!!!

Very comfortable place to relax with a friendly staff. Good food service.

The staff was super friendly as always. The views of the lake from the lodge rooms are super. Kayaked around the lodge and surrounding area and was an awesome day. Marina staff was also excellent.

Broken pool Driftvwood all over broken paths. Playground un safe, over grown, tripping hazard for kids

Rooms are rustic and loved the smell of the rooms.

enjoyed our stay and fellowship with friends. Lota of good food.

While restaurant staffs were friendly breakfast, especially oatmeal was awfull, lumpy and sticky in a rather large bowl. Room smelled musty and screen door to the porch was dirty as the building was made of all woods. Perhaps people may call it rustic it was not for us.

Small rooms but the balcony and the view was everything!!

Great location for visiting family, but the rooms are not comfortable. The carpet was gross and the room smelled musty. The beds and bathroom were clean. Overall the grounds were old. The playground is in need of updating. If you are traveling with an elderly person, make sure you get a room at street level. If you have a room down stairs, the stairs are steep and there are NO elevators to that level.

It was so nice to have such a peaceful place to stay after busy days of sightseeing. The drive was nice and pleasant getting there. It was nice to see wildlife and nature on our drives in and out.

I checked into my room on a 35 degree afternoon, no heat. Called the front desk and asked for another room (They had plenty, the place was not full and I had not yet disturbed the room). Instead of moving me they said they will send someone to look at it. I waited nearly an hour, no repairman came. I walked to the front desk (a long way) and asked what was up. They hadn't reached the repairman yet. They found him and sent him to my room. He worked on it for about an hour and said it was fixed. It wasn't. I waited another half hour to see if would warm up, it didn't. I called the front desk and asked them to move me again, walked back to the front desk carrying my bags, got a new room key, walked back to my new room. The new room was warm, but smelled like urine. I was tired and just stayed in the smelly room. I would've forgiven all of this if the front desk clerk had just apologized or even mentioned the inconvenience.

Trip consisted of pretty much relaxation. The room was very comfortable and clean, the staff was very helpful and so so so nice! The property was very clean and the views were breathtaking. I have not been to Barkley Lodge since I was 17 ( I am 34 now ) and it was great to re live some memories that were made there during family vacations. I highly recommend staying at Lake Barkley.

Old building which makes it historical, the staff is very attentive to your requests. I will stay here again.

The lodge had great views of beautiful Lake Barkley. With off season stay the staff was limited and service appeared to be less enthusiastic about their jobs. Will return in the future but will bring food options to not need to eat in the lodge dinning room for all meals. Would be a great option to have light dinning options or a pizza place on the grounds.

The lodging in a state park resort is adequate and appropriate for the setting. The grounds are nice and the pool is very nice. The dining room is spacious and the buffet lunch and dinner are great and affordable. Front desk people were very friendly and helpful. Dining attendants seemed to be overworked and had a hard time keeping up with seating and checking out, but may have just been understaffed that weekend. The sleeping rooms are in need of update, and general cleaning in the halls, balconies etc. The "feel" is more like camping cabins, which is OK, but certainly not first class. I felt it was a bit pricey for the type of rooms that we got. Parking is free, enough available. The lodge is handicap accessible with elevators, ramps and lifts - but steps are everywhere and getting around can be a challenge even for walking. I don't know if there are accessible sleeping rooms.
