it's cabin time™ in Monticello
The quaint city of Monticello, KY, can be found in the south-central region of the state and serves as the official seat for Wayne County.
Vacationers staying in any of the unique rental cabins, cottages, lodges and homes in the Monticello area can enjoy the scenic views of Lake Cumberland that makes up the community's northwest border.
The majority of Monticello's visitor's come with the goal of enjoying the marinas, fishing, boating and recreation supported by Lake Cumberland, or to frequent the area's lovely parks and golf courses!
History buffs might be drawn to the historic downtown area, where you can walk past historic homes — such as the Brown-Lanier house, which served as a hospital during the Battle of Mill Springs.
There are also a number of wonderful hiking, biking and nature trails that make the most of the area's varied topography and lush, forested hills.
Other notable features of the landscape include the Mississipian Pleateau and the Eastern Kentucky coalfields, both of which are an easy day trip and a wonderful opportunity for photographs.
