We were very pleased; everything was perfect. The grounds are beautiful; room was clean; bed was very comfortable. Check-in and check-out both were very fast and efficient. Although this inn has been around for several decades, it is the people who make all the differences.

We drove down to Brown County to celebrate our thirtieth anniversary as it was the site of our honeymoon. The staff at the front desk was friendly and helpful. Even though the lobby was crowded with a bicycle tour group, check in was quick and extremely efficient. The room was clean, comfortable, quiet, and furnished in typical state park lodge... More

This place is wonderful. It is inside Brown County State Park, which is just beautiful. Just the drive in to the park is awesome. The staff are so nice and accommodating. They have an indoor water park, with a sweet slide and a lazy river. The rooms are comfortable and well equipped. Oh, and they have a really good restaurant... More

This is not a fancy hotel--it's a state park lodge. We (myself, my husband, and our 8 and 10 year old kids) had a room with 2 queen beds. It was spacious and included a table, a desk, a TV cabinet, and a bedside table between the beds. The bathroom is small, but the sink area is outside of the... More

We held a family reunion June 24-26 and rented four family cabins, two rooms at Abe Martin Lodge and one family camped in the camp grounds. We reserved them two years ago (that is the earliest you can reserve). The cabins are large with a full kitchen and room for a family. We all gathered at one of the cabins... More

We had a really great stay in this old-time lodge in Brown County State Park. The lodge is charming with its great log beams and rustic setting. It is old but has been updated so it is clean and neat in appearance. The rooms are comfortable and the staff is friendly. As with many state parks, the wifi and LTE... More

The layout of the cabin and the placement in the woods was excellent. However, the upkeep and housekeeping was severely lacking. Easily the dirtiest place we have experienced in our travels. Housekeeping appears to only change the bed linens (maybe) after each stay. The use of a vacuum or mop occurs much less often.

We have stayed at Abe Martin before, however, this was our first stay in a patio room. The rooms are very clean. It was so nice to just be able to walk right out of our door and sit on the swing or in the Adirondack chairs. The bathrooms are small - not much room for extra toiletries/make up bags,... More

Our room was rustic, clean and the view out the window was of a smoky ridge. Beautiful!! The bathroom had been remodeled recently. We ate at the restaurant twice, once for breakfast and once for dinner. We ate the buffet bar both times. The food is of good quality and there is plenty of it. They have free coffee at... More

We spent the day shopping in Nashville, and then went to Brown County State Park to spend the night. We stayed in a rustic cabin "Tawny Apple" and were pleased with the cabin. The only complaint was that the walls seemed very thin as we could hear the people staying in the other cabin in the same building. We hiked... More
