This hilltop resort that sits where the the Ohio and Kentucky Rivers meet honors a prominent military family. Named for General William Orlando Butler, the family?s military fame spanned from Colonial times through the American Revolution, the War of 1812, the Mexican War and the Civil War.
The Butler-Turpin House, built in 1859, offers a glimpse of Butler family history with its display of 18th and 19th-century heirlooms. Capture some of the area?s river town charm in the resort?s hilltop lodge and enjoy our 9-hole golf course, hiking, swimming and tennis. A spacious conference center makes this resort a destination for business as well as pleasure.
