+THE SPIRIT OF SOUTHERN KENTUCKY

We are Lake Cum­ber­land but we’re also Somer­nites Cruise, Mas­ter Musi­cians Fes­ti­val, Somer­Splash, out­door adven­ture, down­town murals, bour­bon-infused menus, clas­sic movies, live music, brew­eries and pubs… all these things and more rolled into one. So yes, come here for one of the most pop­u­lar vaca­tion lakes in Amer­i­ca, but we have so much more for you to do once you’re here.

How’s your spir­it? What’s your taste? Where’s your next expe­ri­ence? Find it in Som­er­set!
