Golconda Lock and Dam 51 Homes
Reviewed 23 October 2007

The Golconda Lock & Dam 51 homes are four former lock keepers' homes, restored to a 1920s look. We stayed in number 4, a one-bedroom house with living room, dining room, kitchen (stocked with pots and pans) and bathroom.

The location of the house is its main selling point--right on the Ohio River. Sitting on the screened front porch with morning coffee or evening wine was a luxuriantly relaxing experience that I would recommend to anyone who is looking for a slow-paced, country retreat. A family of deer came by most evenings--another bucolic pleasure.

The only major problem with our stay was a rain storm that caused the bathroom roof to leak. It also didn't help that no one answered the emergency number we were told to call, but we were checking out that day, so we could overlook that.

I definitely would go back to the Lock & Dam homes and recommend them to anyone who enjoys staying in a simple, family-type cottage as opposed to a 4-star hotel.
