About Safe Harbor Burnside

Safe Harbor Burnside is located on beautiful Lake Cumberland and is adjacent to General Burnside Island State Park in Burnside, Kentucky. Lake Cumberland is surrounded by tree covered hills and adorned with hundreds of secluded, peaceful coves. It is truly a boater’s paradise with a calm, relaxing atmosphere that prevails throughout many areas of the lake. Lake Cumberland has a surface area of 63,000 acres and is 101 miles long with an average depth of 90ft. It is famous for its 1,255 miles of shoreline.

Safe Harbor Burnside is a full-service marina that offers both open and covered wet slips, transient slips, and small boat rentals through our partners at Safe Harbor Rentals. During the summer season, we have a Café located on the water and close to our Ship’s Store. We are also just a short distance from Somerset, KY which offers excellent shopping and many other activities such as concerts, music festivals, car shows, craft shows, and more. Come and enjoy all that Lake Cumberland has to offer!

Inclement Weather (Small Boat Rentals ONLY)

Rain checks may be issued for 100% of unused rental due to unfavorable weather conditions, as determined by the marina manager. Taking possession of a rental voids eligibility for rain-check status and is considered a redeemed rental. Eligibility for rain checks is a decision made day of the rental only, as forecasts models cover large areas and may have no impact on the scheduled rental. Rain checks are active for one year and then are expired if not redeemed. Rain checks must be used intact and may not be split among various dates and/or units.

Exception for Cancellation Policies

No refunds are issued for cancellation of rentals in holiday or special event rental seasons even if cancelled according to published guidelines.
