Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park: The Lobby’s Especially Beautiful During Christmas
The beautiful lodge at Kentucky Dam Village State Resort Park has always been one of my favorite lodges in the State Park System. The outside of the lodge, while perfectly lovely (especially from the back), doesn’t prepare you for just how pretty the lobby is. As for the view, it’s killer.
We were recently stopped in our tracks by the lodge’s beautiful Christmas decorations. The first words out of my mouth were, “Now that’s a tree!” The huge beautiful tree stands beside the copper fire place and it really is something to see. On opposite ends of the lobby, they have huge… and I mean huge… wreaths – which are also extra beautiful. Even the tables had adorable little decorations as centerpieces.
On this particular trip, the staff represented their state park beautifully. The ladies at the desk were extra warm and friendly – but the hero of the day was the gentleman who happened to be cleaning the ladies room at the time. When he saw me coming down the hall, he could have just kept on doing his job (after all, I could have found other facilities!). Fortunately for me, he was a true Southern gentleman. He said, “Here, I’ll move all of this out of your way!” Then he, happily, moved his cart and cleaners out and left me to the spotless room.
How spotless? I could see my reflection in the sink!
This is the kind of person that gives the Kentucky State Parks their personality, their charm, and their heart.
They say a picture is worth a thousand words and, in the case of Kentucky, I’d say that’s 100 percent true. We could use up all the words in the English language (and even borrow some from other languages), but we could never truly describe how beautiful or special our beloved state is.
