We stayed one night in the lodge and wanted to stay a second night but no rooms were available, so we stayed in one of the rustic cabins which had only a full bed, refrigerator, coffee maker, and bathroom. It was explained to us that these are "a step above camping". I agree 100% with others who posted that the... More

I had a group of 5 pre-teen girls that were going to be celebrating a birthday by being at the Aquatic Center at the lodge. I had heard great things about the lodge and water area, but the only available accommodation for the night that we needed was in one of the rustic family cabins. I had no idea what... More

Oh my oh my. We found our time at the lodge so disappointing. We were getting married in the park and recommended it to friends as it was close to the ceremony site and boy do we regret that call! The park itself is lovely but the Inn is musty, cold and in need of serious refurbishment. My husband and... More

First the positives: This place is located in an absolutely gorgeous setting. The water park also looked fun, although we did it have an opportunity to enjoy it. The rooms are very musty and have not been updated in many years. We stayed for a wedding on the grounds of the Brown County State Park. We found out that although... More

We stayed one evening at the Abe Martin Lodge. The Lodge is in the Brown County State Park. Take the time to drive through the park as there are amazing views, the nature center is interesting for all ages, and, of course, take a tour throughout the Abe Martin Lodge. Some of my next comments are not to be taken... More

Brief one night stay. Lodge is old and needs updating. Room was extremely damp even with air conditioning. Wall paper, carpet, etc. needs to be updated. Bathrooms very small. TV fuzzy reception. The beds are hard. No Internet connection need to walk outside to get the phone to work. No refrigerator or microwave in room. Did not use the indoor... More

We had two family cabins. They are in need of updating and cleaning (cobwebs on windows/screens, etc). Disappointed that we had to be out by 11 am this year instead of 12 noon. The two rooms at the Inn were nice and convenient to the pool. We are planning to return next year.

This was OK for a state park lodge. There are multiple common areas to relax, watch tv and chat with friends in. There's free coffee (but it does run out), nice outdoor garden, nearby hiking trails, plenty of parking. We looked at the restaurant but choose not to eat there.

Stay wasn't bad. They told us that our cabins wouldn't be ready until 4:00. And after allowing us to get into 1 the other 3 were not done until right at 4. So if that pattern holds true make sure to have other things to do if getting there hours before 4:00. The cabins were all supposed to be together... More
