We stayed at the Abe Martin Lodge for the second time in a year. We absolutely love this place. This time, we found that we could get no Internet service even with the information that we were given about logging on. It could have been our room location, however. The buffet lunch and dinner are probably the best anywhere in...

Needed a break from everything and planned a trip to brown county state park. Staying in a Family Cabin that is fabulous! Spacious, comfortable and surrounded by nature. Cabins are tucked in quaintly in the woods. Close to the lodge that has a cute indoor water park with a much needed hot tub after walking the trails all day. The...

On a recent visit to the nursing facility in Nashville, IN we were in a bit of a quandry as to where to stop for dinner. Fastfood didn't sound good, the normal restaurants didn't sound appealing either, nor a trip to Bloomington and the drive back. Heading back to Columbus I suggested stopping at Brown County State Park and going...

Thank you for sharing your time at the Abe Martin Lodge. The Little Gem Restaurant inside the Abe Martin Lodge has live music most Saturday nights, and Sunday mornings! We have folks come every weekend to enjoy the great music. We appreciate the kind words, and will pass on your rave reviews of the food to the kitchen staff. Please...

Lodge rooms are clean and staff friendly. A naturalist was on site at one point, so we got to handle snakes. The aquatic center looked amazing for the kids, though we did not use that facility. There are many indoor and outdoor areas to relax. We enjoyed the fireplace. Free coffee around. Lodge food was plentiful and good, if you...

So we had not been here in a few years. We lucked out this year and got a patio room. It was awesome. The room opens onto a large patio. Each room has a 2 person swing with a chair right outside the door. There are other chairs and a table where we ate dinner on Saturday night. The patio...

Good experience all around. Room was clean and comfortable and the dining room served excellent meals; although the menu is limited. Staff was friendly and helpful. Internet access a little spotty. We were a little apprehensive after reading many negative reviews; but had a great time and will return. Good hiking trails. Beautiful park, well maintained.

My fiancé and I stayed here during our children's spring break. Room was clean and comfortable. Slightly dated décor but it is in a state park. Lighting in room was extremely bright wish it had been a little softer. Pool was great for kids and would've been even better if it was heated. There is a restaurant onsite but it...

We stayed in a new cabin near the lodge. It was very nice and near brown county. We visited downtown for dinner and drinks. The water park is small but good for small kids. Many trails for walking, riding horses, or bikes. Good trip for the family away from the distractions of the city.

Thanks for sharing your experience at the Abe Martin Lodge’s Cabins! I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your time at both the park and in Nashville. It is a great way to “get away” from everyday life. We hope to see you back soon!

This was a last minute Spring Break 2 day stay. It was suggested to me by a friend instead of the frenzy of a huge aquatic based, animal themed, expensive Mason, Ohio hotel. The only rooms left were in a primitive cabin so I was a bit scared of what we might find but it was a clean room set...

If you're looking to stay in a run down hotel with deplorable food service, this is for you. We sat the restaurant for an hour and a half with four kids before we got our food. We watched as five tables around is who ordered a full half hour later were served. The answer from the server was sorry you...
