Comfort Inn of Somerset is the closest hotel in Somerset to Lake Cumberland! The lake is perfect for launching boats for swimming, tubing, rafting, skiing, and more. Lake Cumberland is the deepest lake in the state, and in the summer it turns into a water wonderland. Your spacious and affordable hotel room is just minute from 1,255 miles of shore.
The lake itself has an interesting history: it’s actually a manmade lake, built by the United States Army Corps of Engineers in 1952 when they constructed the nearby Wolf Creek Dam! Learn more about the dam, as well as some of the ways you can enjoy all the things to do on Lake Cumberland close to our hotel.
There are many entry points to the lake for your boat. From our hotel, take Highway 27 south to the lake, where there are entry points at:

There are there also lots of marinas where you can rent a boat, add recreation rentals, or launch your own boat. Lee’s Ford Resort Marina, 6 miles from the hotel, rents jet skis, houseboats, and more, and has dining and entertainment all in one area.
