Girlfriend Getaway to Kentucky Lake & Lake Barkley

Green Turtle BayLadies, this one’s especially for you!

Isn‘t it about time for a break? Have you been craving some “me” time or looking for something fun to do at Kentucky Lake with your girlfriends? Then here’s a trip itinerary that’s calling your name. All you have to do is book your Green Turtle Bay Resort vacation and you’re off to the perfect girlfriend getaway!

Lap Up Luxury at Green Turtle Bay Resort

It seems that the condominiums available at Green Turtle Bay Resort were perfectly designed with girlfriend getaways in mind. These vacation rentals create a stunning atmosphere for friends to gather around the fireplace on a cool evening or to celebrate summer with a festive barbecue in the great outdoors. You’ll love the close proximity of your condo to restaurants, boutiques and a variety of spa services.

Condos are available from one to four bedrooms, allowing each guest some privacy and quiet time when desired. There is a fully equipped kitchen that makes cooking meals on site simple, but if you’re like most women who’ve been cooking for your family all year long you’re probably going to want to get out and try one of the region’s local restaurants.

Grab a Bite to Eat at Docker’s Bayside Grill

After you’ve enjoyed a leisurely morning, sleeping in and having no interruptions to your beauty regimen, pop over to the Docker’s Bayside Grill at Green Turtle Bay. Docker’s has a little bit of this and a whole lot of yummy flavors to try on their breakfast and lunch menus. If you’re looking for something healthy, they’ve got you covered. If you’re in the mood for something sweet, there is definitely something to satisfy that craving, as well. From salads to sandwiches to homemade pies Docker’s Bayside Grill overs guests a casual dining experience that will give you the fuel you need to start your day off right.

Patti's 1880s SettlementShop till You Drop

While many of Green Turtle Bay’s visitors enjoy some fun in the sun, there is also a lot that you and your girlfriends can do indoors at one of the region’s numerous shopping venues. There are several options available right there in Grand Rivers, Kentucky, or if you don’t mind taking a short drive there are loads of ladies’ boutiques, home décor shops, antique stores and a variety of other specialty retailers to explore.

Something close to home would be Ashleigh’s Boutique at Patti’s Settlement, a store that carries ladies apparel, Brighton jewelry and accessories, as well as handbags. Or if you plan to venture out a bit, you’ll certainly want to plan to spend an hour or so at the Bows and Cleats in Eddyville, Kentucky, where you’ll find classic Southern flare mingled with small town charm.

Attention Chocolate Lovers

A trip to Grand Rivers is never quite complete until you’ve sampled the fudge from Grand Rivers Fudge. In fact, you might want to put this on your day planner as one of your first stops of the day. We wouldn’t want you to grow faint from a chocolate craving while you’re out getting your shop on!

Dance the Night Away

The Commonwealth Yacht Club has been known to throw a few fun and festive events that you and your friends are sure to enjoy. Why not round out your day of retail therapy by grabbing a delicious dinner at the Yacht Club and stick around for some after-dinner entertainment. You’ll want to check their schedule for a list of upcoming dances and events. There’s always something happening around the club and those leasing a condo at Green Turtle Bay will have access to gorgeous views and a delightful meal at the club.

Jade Earth & SpaAdd a Day to Your Trip

One day is never enough time to soak up all of the fun things to do around Kentucky Lake. So now that you’ve got shopping out of your system, why not book an appointment at the Jade & Earth Spa. They offer services from facials to massages to manicures and pedicures. They even have a hair salon if you’re looking to do a complete makeover before you head home.

Vacation is an Investment in Your Overall Wellness

Trips with the girls can certainly reduce stress. So take some time for yourself and grab your girlfriends for a few days of R & R at Green Turtle Bay Resort and Marina at Kentucky Lake. Vacation is good medicine!
