Sleep in a Wigwam

Sleep in a Wigwam

I had always heard about the place like this along Route 66, but didn't know that there was one near Mammoth Cave until a couple of years ago. This is just north of the center of Cave City, KY along highway U.S. 31W, which was part of the Dixie Highway way back when. There used to be several of these in touristy areas around the country, but now only this one and the one along Route 66 remain.

And, they have a website...

My wife and I have often talked about actually staying in one of these, but they seem to be already booked the weekends we want to go. If you plan on ever visiting a place like this, you would be going to relive a piece of golden age of car travel Americana and not because you wanted 4 star accomidations.

  1. You and the Missus should reserve one in advance for a nice Fall day - at night, you can build a bonfire and sit and relax. That's when the wigwams are at their most entrancing. :)

  2. Sounds like a good idea! We thought about going last July 4th but of course it was already booked far in advance.
