Grider Hill Marina and Resort

Grider Hill Marina and Resort is a gem on Lake Cumberland that has been serving families for over sixty years. In 1950, visionary Bruce Sloan wanted to make Grider Hill “more than a fishing camp”.
This businessman in the stone and timber trade and sportsman during his free time, turned Grider Hill into a true masterpiece. With elements of architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s style and philosophy, and stone and timber from his own land make it a masterpiece even today. At present, Jim Figuerado is at the helm of Grider Hill and Rick Mercador, who grew up at the lake, is the general manager with over 13 years of firsthand experience. Grider Hill is truly a full service resort, with over 900 docks and 311 acres of luscious property. There are plenty of new additions and renovations taking place to accommodate the many families that frequent Grider Hill Marina and Resort each year. The new party deck with covered, open air seating and amazing lake views is accessible to the Indian Creek Lodge and Restaurant – which has been moved to the dock area allowing for true lakeside dining! The party deck will feature entertainment, music, and sometimes dancing several times each month. The restaurant offers a sports bar type menu and on the weekends they love to serve up their grilled steaks, hand battered fish, wonderful homemade sides, desserts, and of course, daily specials. Their docks have also been recently updated following the tornado which came through a few years ago. The welcoming green roofs blend in nicely with the contours of the hills that hug the shoreline of Lake Cumberland. The docks have new decking and cushiony white bumpers for boat safety. Lodging is abundant at Grider Hill Marina and Resort with 36 rooms at the Sassafras and the Stone Lodge, or if you prefer camping, there are RV hookups and primitive campsites – all within a stone’s throw of the lake. Grider Hill is known for their houseboat rental fleet as well. You can rent a 50’ – 73’ houseboat easily. Check their rates and specials on-line, as they fill up very quickly. Wireless internet is now available throughout the dock area for those that must have wireless access during their vacation. Grider Hill welcomes you for dinner, a romantic getaway, or the family vacation of a lifetime.
