Pine Mountain State Resort Park: The Gorgeous Woods Behind the Lodge.
Each of the Kentucky State Resort Parks is beautiful. So much so, in fact, that each time I’m at one, I’m convinced that IT is the most beautiful place in the world. I had another moment just like this when we were at Pine Mountain State Resort Park in Pineville, Kentucky.
Even if there weren’t a wonderful State Resort Park in Pineville, the city itself, would be an ideal vacation spot.
Breathtaking beauty – as in everywhere you look.
The first set of pictures in this Pine Mountain State Resort Park picture gallery were all taken (obviously!) in Autumn. I’m sure we’ll go back often and will add pictures of this remarkable place from other seasons.
There simply couldn’t be a time of year when Pine Mountain State Resort Park wouldn’t take your breath away.
Enjoy the pictures, but more importantly, get yourself to Pine Mountain as soon as you possibly can.

The Pine Mountain State Resort Park Lodge, Herndon J. Evans Lodge, is absolutely perfect for this park. It’s reminiscent of a snow lodge or a hunting lodge, so it creates an ideal atmosphere. There are gorgeous framed art prints by Ray Harm throughout the lodge which only add to its beauty.
The upper lobby of the lodge was built in the 1930’s and still showcases the beauty and workmanship of the original sandstone and chestnut log construction.
The 30 guest rooms in the lodge have full amenities and a private balcony or patio to enjoy the gorgeous mountain view.
There are also cottages for rent at Pine Mountain. There are eleven 2-bedroom cottages with porches or decks and nine 1-bedroom cabins with fireplaces & private decks.
I’m getting weak in the knees thinking about a winter evening in a Mountain cabin with a fireplace.
The Pine Mountain Interpretive Center (in the woods behind the lodge) is home to innovative exhibits and an interactive kiosk to tell visitors of the park’s rich natural history story. The Interpretive Center is the perfect place to begin a visit to the park with information available on the park’s unique geology, mountain formation, wildlife, forest communities, wildflowers, and many other topics. The center is open from 9:00 am – 5:00 pm daily.
