Love Brown County. It's beautiful and nearby Nashville is also worth a visit. Check-in was 2 hours later than normal (normal being 4 p.m.). No apologies, even a bit of attitude at the front desk by an assistant manager. Suck it up & go, i guess. The family cabin was outdated. Thankfully the waitstaff in the attached restaurant were very... More

I will not stay at this hotel again. The waterpark was very nice, but the hotel is old, dirty and poorly taken care of. The hotel hallways are dark, and the room made me nauseous. There was no ventilation, the bedskirts were dirty and stained, the bed covers clearly have not been washed and were smelly. The bathtub had hair... More

If you are going to Brown County State Park, a night at the Abe Martin Lodge is very pleasant. The mattress was nice and firm, the shower pressure was excellent (it looked as though the shower had been recently renovated) and it had the typical State Park woodsy decor. The staff is very friendly which is always helpful. Since we... More

We travel here a few times a year and we are never disappointed. The water park is designed so parents can see the entire park even from the hot tub. The staff is always friendly and the food at there is always amazing! Love it here!

The Abe Martin Lodge at Brown County State park is an unique property. It has a very nice lodge area, with rooms from the 40's and a wing that was added about 20 years ago. it also has stand alone hotel rooms surrounding the lodge and housekeeping cottages. I have stayed in all different types, but this review covers the... More

It was a nice stay. Management was great. But the counter check in girl we had wasn't as friendly as one would hope. Very matter of fact attitude. Didn't smile. Clearly just a job to her. almost made you feel like you were bothering her to have her you check in. I left my phone charger in the room and... More

Brown County is easily our favorite Indiana State Park, however a few aspects of the Lodge & family cabins could use a little attention. Pros: The indoor water park is what makes this destination desirable, especially in colder months. Very clean and fun for kids. Beautiful location! Cons: Family cabins are very basic. They claim to sleep 8 people, but... More

We visited in mid February and had an excellent stay. Everyone was so friendly. Water park is not compared to the larger parks we have been to but if you have smaller kids it is PERFECT. We had 4 kids from 8-2 yrs old and we could see them at all times while relaxing or swimming ourselves. Our rooms came... More

I took my mom to Brown County Park Sept 2014. We have been coming to Nashville for 20 yeRs and this was the first time we stayed at Abe Martin. Omg we had the best time. We rode horses, explored the fantastic park. We loved our room in the lodge, it was adorable. And the main rooms in the lodge... More
