Lake Cumberland Vacation Is Prize in Canadian Sweepstakes
MONTICELLO , Ky. – Beach balls, tubes and towels will spell fun for the Canadian winners of a houseboat vacation at Kentucky’s Lake Cumberland in Travel South USA’s Discover the Southern Way Vacation Sweepstakes.
Part of Travel South USA’s 12-month series of vacation giveaways in 12 southern states, the Kentucky trip is featured for Canadian contestants to sign up this month. The giveaway offers houseboat accommodations for six people for four nights (Monday afternoon through Friday morning). The boat will be docked and cruise out of the Conley Bottom Resort in Monticello, one of the most beautiful spots on Lake Cumberland.
The trip winner can take the vacation from April 15 through June 15, 2008 or Aug. 15 through Oct. 15, 2008. Fuel is included for this luxurious cruising home on the water, along with two-day rental of tubes, skis, wakeboards and kneeboards. The houseboat has all the comforts of home, with a completely furnished kitchen and a grill on the deck.
Conley Bottom is located in the heart of the lake, a beautiful adventure-lover’s paradise in southeastern Kentucky. With some 35,000 acres of water, Lake Cumberland is one of the largest man-made reservoirs east of the Mississippi River. Anglers can test their skill with a variety of fish, including striper, walleye, bass, catfish and bluegill. Moor the boat in a secluded cove and enjoy hiking, biking, picnicking and fishing from shore. The beauty of the lake provides a perfect way to slow down and escape from the everyday routine.
Registration is open to Canadian residents only. Other terms and conditions of the contest can be found on Travel South USA’s web site, www.travelsouthusa.com.
