My husband and I retired to Somerset just over two years ago. There is nothing here except the lake and for the next 7 years it will be low because of the repair on the dam. There are no nice sit down restaurants here, just fast foods and the shopping in limited to Wal-mart. I would not recommen moving to Somerset to anyone. Look someplace else.

I agree. The taxes are no better here unless you enjoy paying taxes on boats and cars that you already purchased once. You pay them every year here and they keep finding new ways to tax you more. The insurence here may be decent if you didnt have to worry about flooding in some parts, tornadoes in others, and the entire state of kentucky sits on the worlds largest underground cave system. No joke, we emptied our pool into a hole that snakes used to come out of...never seen a drop of that water. We got cave insurence after that. If you are older Id recommend Gatlinburg Tn. Or somewhere with more to do. The point is to enjoy your retirement. You wont here. There are no resteraunts that most retiring people would enjoy. There are fast food resteraunts and then the harbor which is uncomfortable and expensive. You will drive an hour for any sort of alchohol. IF you like to keep to yourselves...you will be ostrisized because everyone here loves to know your business. The lake is scary if youve ever been on it in the summer. Too many drunks travel here from ohio and then end up hurting someone seriously. Please, for your own sake...dont even think about it.
