Hesters, a tradition on Kentucky Lake for many decades, has become the “resort of choice” for folks looking for a clean, quiet and enjoyable vacation location at a reasonable cost. We must be doing something right since over 70% of our guests made reservations for the nect year before leaving! Since we appreciate that the economy has made it difficult for folks to plan vacations, our rental rates have not been increased for 2009.

Hesters offers a small, friendly vacation setting on the edge of beautiful Kentucky Lake. The rental units are located on a protected point surrounded by water just off the main lake. Our marina store, boat slips and rental boats provide everything needed for a lake vacation.

Hesters has eleven rental units. Nine units are within 100 yards of the water and provide for outdoor barbecuing, picnicking and campfires. Two units are on a hill overlooking Hesters with a view of the lake. All units are equipped with air conditioning, heat and cable television. Each unit has a full kitchen with stove, refrigerator, coffee maker, microwave, and toaster. Cooking pans, utensils, dishes, bed linens and towels are furnished.

On Hesters’ grounds you will find a sand volley ball court, a basketball court, playground area for children, game room with a ping pong table, and a sandy beach with a swimming dock. Within 30 minutes from Hesters, you will find golf courses, nature trails, horseback riding, and restaurants. The Land Between the Lakes with its beach area and quarry are a quick boat ride from Hesters. Some guests are brave enough to scale the quarry’s 60 foot cliffs and jump into the calm, deep water.

Hesters is flexible in meeting the vacation plans of resort guests by offering weekly and daily rental rates with a minimum of a two night stay. Check-in is 3:00 PM and check-out is 9:00 AM but we will accommodate your travel plans whenever possible. We welcome pets with the payment of a $50 fee for the stay

Our full service marina offers gas, bait, tackle, fishing licenses, ice, snack items, T shirts, and an area for cleaning fish. We have a ramp for launching your boat and covered boat slips with electricity. We are proud that Hesters has been certified a “Clean Marina” by the Tennessee Valley Authority since 2007.

Many guests bring their boats to Hesters. Our boat slips rent for $10 a day and we guarantee that at least one covered boat slip is available for rent for each unit that is rented. Additional boats are accommodated based upon availability of slips.

Hesters also has boats for rent at daily, three day and weekly rates.
