Hotel at a Glance: Loretta Lynn’s Ranch & Family Campground
In the classic country song “Coal Miner’s Daughter,” Loretta Lynn tells the story of her humble upbringing in a one-room cabin in the town of Butcher Holler. Today, the star’s 6,500-acre ranch pays homage to those roots with a replica of her childhood home, and a recreated coal mine. The family-friendly ranch and campground earned TripAdvisor’s Certificate of Excellence in 2013.
This Groupon includes a ticket to tour the Plantation Home or a replica of Lynn’s one-room Butcher Holler Home.
