Nestled between Lake Cumberland and the Daniel Boone National Forest, Somerset, attracts more than 1.5 million tourists each year. Lake Cumberland is one of the largest man made lakes in the nation. Its 1255 miles of shoreline serves as a great place for boating, fishing, and skiing.
The first American settlers arrived in the Somerset area in 1750 when a group of settlers constructed the first Somerset homes near what is now Lake Cumberland. These settlers were joined in 1798 by a group of American Revolution veterans who received many Somerset properties as a reward for fighting for America's independence. Many of these veterans converted their properties into thriving farms and tobacco plantations that played an important role in Somerset's economy until the middle of the 20th century. The completion of Lake Cumberland in 1950 transformed Somerset from a sleepy rural community into one of the largest recreation centers, and have attracted many new Somerset home buyers who enjoy the lake's location near many of Kentucky's most popular fishing, hiking and waterskiing spots. They have also attracted many new residents who enjoy Somerset's relaxed lifestyle and friendly neighborhoods. As a result, it is easy to see why the demand for Somerset homes for sale continues to grow each year.
