Areas within Kentucky
At the western tip of the state are the Western Water Lands. A vacation stay in one of these cabin rentals in Kentucky will put you in the center of all water recreation imaginable. Looking for countryside and country music? Try Dan Boone Country. With many state parks, off-road adventures, and the “Grand Ole Opry of Kentucky,” you’re sure to enjoy your stay. In the Bluegrass Region, you’ll find the famous Kentucky Horse Parks. Looking for a city destination? Look for houses for rent in Kentucky near Louisville to tour distilleries and swing by the Kentucky Derby.
Sightseeing in KY and Things to Do
Four counties in Kentucky border the Mississippi River. There is history to explore and many attractions to visit along the Kentucky Great River Road. For an exciting local flair the whole family will love, stop by the Apple Valley Hillbilly Garden and Toyland or travel back in time in Bardstown with a historic carriage ride. Step outside our Kentucky vacation rentals and explore the Big South Fork Cumberland River. Take a candlelit ghost tour and call on the spirits at the Perryville Battlefield State Historic Site.
Regional Foods and Dining in Kentucky
Kentucky’s culinary heritage is full of the spirit that makes up southern hospitality. The taste of barbecue and friend chicken with spoonbread and corn pudding will have your whole family licking their fingers. Country ham with breakfast is sure to be a family favorite when staying in any of our Kentucky cabin rentals across the state.
Do you have a foodie in the family? Check out the Moonlite Bar-B-Q Inn and enjoy barbecue loved by celebrities and praised by food magazines. Have a bowl of burgoo and a glass of bourbon with dinner anywhere in the state and you’ll be dining in true Kentucky style. From oysters to Derby pie, the food alone is reason enough to plan your vacation at any of our homes for rent in Kentucky.
KY Weather and Climate
Kentucky enjoys four distinctly different seasons. Fall brings beautiful color to the scenery as early as mid-September. Spring lights up the famous bluegrass fields and brings out baby foals. Warm summers and moderately cold winters showcase a variety of wildlife in migration. Search online with Vacation Home Rentals and plan your trip during an Indian summer or experience a January thaw.
When to Visit Kentucky
Kentucky’s location provides mild climates all year long. This means any time of year is a great time to stay in one of our homes or cabins for rent in Kentucky. January through February is a less popular travel time to the state, as the weather is at its coldest. The long springs and falls are perfect for outdoor adventure and sightseeing.
No matter when your trip is, there’s sure to be a festival or annual event to attend. Check out the famous Kentucky Derby in May and be a part of KY’s largest annual event. For rich Kentucky atmosphere and music, check out the Blues and Barbecue Festival in mid-July, the Great American Brass Band Festival in June, or the Kentucky Bluegrass Music and Burgoo Festival in September.
Horses, bluegrass, city life, and fine cuisine can all be a part of your Kentucky vacation. Book your rental online through Vacation Home Rentals and save with one of our many by-owner house or cabin rentals in Kentucky. Booking with a trusted site like us means you can focus on what really matters, like deciding between Derby pie and chocolate bread pudding for dessert!
