Lakeview Point (Harrodsburg, KY)

(start date: 2004) 

Lakeview Point Bed & Breakfast was a lakefront  resort located on Herrington Lake in Harrodsburg, KY. The inn opened in May 2004 and remained open year-round from its second season until it closed permanently. The owners were Dorothy "Dot" Dunn and her son Brad, both Kentucky natives.

Lakeview Point was the only African American owned and operated bed and breakfast in Kentucky during the time that it was in operation. The Kentucky Bed and Breakfast Association voted the resort's ad the best print ad.

For more information see "Getting away is closer than you think at B&B," Harrodsburg Herald, 8/11/2005, section B, p. B1. Dot Dunn was interviewed on Connections with Renee Shaw, episode 218, 7/14/2007. Contact Renee Shaw at KET (Kentucky Educational Television) for more information.
