This is our third stay at Abe Martin. We love the location, rooms are clean and comfortable, staff are very kind and helpful. The "family room" was beautiful, the Christmas tree was amazing. Look forward to another stay.

We visited the lodge this weekend as a family. We had 4 rooms rented for our group. Yes they are dated but very clean. I kind of liked the rustic look, it goes with that lodge in a park setting. The Gem restaurant was delicious. The buffet had a wide variety of food for both dinner and breakfast. The front... More

I will agree that the lodge is outdated... However, it is an OLD building with a lot of history and I wouldn't have it any other way. Yes, you get actual keys- but I love that! The rooms are standard but roomy and comfy! We always stay in a king room and are never disappointed! I love the game room... More

I recently stayed at the Abe Martin lodge for a meeting. The staff was courteous and willing to help in anyway possible.

There was also a small waterpark, it could be both enjoyed by children and adults. unfortunately we didn't get a chance to... More

My family stayed in a family cabin, unit 19 on Monday (21st and 22nd of October) and checked out before Noon on Tuesday the 22nd. As another reviewer noted the family cabins at about $240 a night are a bit shabby. But the beauty of fall and the park trumped the outdated cabin and the marginally clean (at best) quarters....

First, manage your expectations. This is a hotel, which I think is owned and operated by the Parks Department. It is nice. Overall better than basic, but not fancy. We stayed in a Family Cabin, which is a freestanding 2-story "cabin." Really more of a basic house. Small kitchen, with refridgerator, stove, etc. Two bedrooms upstairs with queen-sized beds. Two...
