Lake Cumberland is an example of the large lakes and is a perennial favorite among houseboat enthusiasts. It has more shoreline that the coast of Florida and offers numerous secluded coves perfect for your floating vacation

Attractions - A great way to enjoy a Kentucky vacation is aboard a houseboat on any of the large lakes. Many of the lakes are developed tourist destinations and offer a wide variety of amenities.
