Elk Creek Vineyards
Ensconcing visitors in spacious rooms surrounded by 30 lush acres of grapevines, Elk Creek Vineyards merges the grandeur of Napa Valley with Kentucky hospitality. Among three discrete lodgings, the Estates’ wraparound deck sounds the creak of rocking chairs, the Inn’s communial living room welcomes late-night conversation, and the Lodge’s private decks open up onto vineyard and lake. Live entertainment every Friday and Saturday keeps eardrums occupied, and a gallery exhibits the creations of local artists. During tastings and tours, guests sample the vineyard’s products and stroll through the fields, popping grapes to figure out which ones are alcoholic.
