Know before you go!
Our lodge is located in the heart of historic downtown Frankfort at 309 Lewis St. There are several places to eat, shop, and visit all within a few blocks walk or short drive to our lodge.
RV Parking: We do not offer RV parking at our lodge and there are no designated spaces downtown for RVs. The closest location would be Elkhorn Camp Grounds, about a 15 minute drive from our lodge. You can, however, park your RV at the Kentucky Historical Society parking lot on Ann Street or Frankfort YMCA parking lot on Broadway while you are at our lodge – both are within a couple of blocks of our lodge.
Our Lodge: We offer a limited food menu so ask your bartender what’s available that day. Guests are welcome to bring food in or have food delivered to our lodge! We offer a wide selection of beers and other spirits, but if you are coming to Kentucky for the bourbon we can also offer a variety of Kentucky bourbons for you to try.
We have an ABC certified wooden two-lane bowling alley. Guests are welcome to bowl on Friday evenings, but please be sure to call ahead so that we can arrange for the lanes to be turned on for you. The cost is $2 per game and children are welcome to bowl with adult supervision. Children are welcome in the club room before 10 PM, but cannot be at the bar. Please also be aware that smoking is allowed in the lodge.
We love hosting visiting members to our lodge! We are open 7 days a week and you will always find a welcome face when you visit.
