We just stayed in the lodge with our grandchildren for the weekend. My problem is not with the facility it's the way it's run. It is very obvious that they do not have enough help. Our room was adequate size for the 5 of us. It was clean and the beds were comfortable. We checked in on Friday afternoon and... More

Pretty clean and cute for a rustic cabin... But don't think you're gonna get in early, most likely they will be running behind on check in time. Try to get the cabin facing the lodge, we got one facing the woods, so our broken down picnic table was in the the woods with poison ivy. But even the ones in... More

We reserved one room and needed another when we showed up and they were very accommodating with that. The hotel staff is very friendly and the restaurant food and prices are good and there is a lot to do in and around the lodge. However, when you leave make sure you have all of your belongings. When we called the... More

We stayed for one evening after spending the day of activities in and around Brown County. The hotel was older, but the rooms were clean. The staff was friendly and helpful. My family enjoyed the water park area - liked the lazy river and slide. We ate at the restaurant in the hotel. The service was very slow, but the... More

I wasn't sure about booking this rustic cabin due to poor TripAdvisor reviews. However, due to a last minute July 4th weekend trip to Brown County, we booked the cabin at Abe Martin Lodge because there were no lodge rooms available. The cabin (Lafe Bud) was old and tiny, and, as expected, had no TV or WiFi. This didn't bother... More

One of the big draws for us was the waterpark. Admission for up to four people is included with a lodge room or cabin. We stayed in the main lodge on the first floor between the front desk and the waterpark. The park is small, but it was just the right size for my autistic son. No one stared or... More

On July 6th two "young at heart" grandparents took their 13 year old grandson to Brown County for some hiking and outdoor fun. We stayed in Room 107 in the Lodge. It was a wonderful room with beautiful view of a lovely peaceful garden. The room had a modern tv and wifi. At this resort they have an outstanding water... More

*My three year old daughter was on her bed playing when I noticed the light bulb above her head swaying. (This is just wrong in so many ways.) She too noticed it and reached up to grab it but I caught her. The incandescent bulb was so old it rusted out of its base (see picture) and was just hanging... More

We reserved one of the family cabins next to the Abe Martin lodge in Brown County State Park in Indiana. Our grand children loved the cabin and it was a perfect choice for grand parents and 4 grand children, ages 7 to 14. The small water park inside the Abe Martin Lodge is great. Kids loved it. Great hiking opportunities... More
