Facilities for sandwiches, clean restrooms, maps and area information, and beautiful Kentucky crafts are here. You could do a lot of gift shopping here, as well as get a bite to eat. Really clean and friendly people too!

Pros: Some very nice artwork is displayed/for sale. Good place to stretch your legs right off I-75. Cons: Small. Smaller than it's West Virginia counterpart, Tamarack. A little bit of a tourist trap; felt like a glorified visitor center. There wasn't a lot of art...More

There are no outside exhibits. It's all indoors. Only service animals allowed. We left our dog in the car listening to his favorite music with the a/c on so he would comfortable. Best to leave a note inside the window too.

It's a trap. Admission is free but the temptation to buy the art is hard to resist. The art is unique and fairly priced. Food and drink also fairly priced. Great place to stretch your legs.
