The room was not as clean as we would like but we told ourselves that it is a park lodge not a resort hotel. We bought Clorox wipes and clorox spray to clean the bathroom. We covered the sofa with a sheet in order to feel comfortable sitting on it. The staff were mostly pleasant but the check in staff... More

We were in town a few hours before our check-in at a different establishment and decided to kill time here. We were able to buy two bracelets for ourselves without being guests of the hotel. I think it was about $20 for the two of us. It was a fun place to relax and play volleyball for about an hour... More

I've stayed in rustic cabins at other State Parks with less amenities than this one, but our group was extremely disappointed in this cabin. The entire cabin was very dusty, including the tables, lamps, and curtains. The sheets didn't fit the bed and kept coming off during the night. The bathroom was just gross with mold in the shower, cobwebs... More

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
