The Abe Martin Lodge is located within the Brow County State Park in Nashville, Indiana. Renowned for its rolling hills and magnificent vistas; the State park is just one of the many reasons we chose to stay here in March of 2014.
The Abe Martin Lodge has been renewed (renovated) several times and the last time this was completed in 2010, they added an indoor “water facility”. The lodge itself houses a gift shop, restaurant, meeting rooms and has a selection of “cabins” and “family cabins” available close by.
Visitors are welcomed into the lodge via a beautiful Indiana stone entrance way; once inside the feeling of a warm, friendly and inviting atmosphere immediately are felt. The front desk staff is very helpful and courteous in answering questions and giving out suggested family or individual activities.
Our room was a spacious double-queen bed with a small refrigerator, large flat screen TV, a separate desk and table with chairs. Plenty of room for our family to relax and enjoy some down-time after exploring the park all day. The "memory-Foam" mattress on the bed we slept in was so comfortable that we were out before our head touched the pillow!!
The indoor water facility has a wade pool, hot tub, a ‘lazy-river’, water ball area, small-children’s splash area and a three-story, curvy water slide. There is ample room for seating with comfortable chairs surrounding the water areas. There are life guards on duty for everyone’s safety.
The onsite restaurant has the ‘famous Brown County fried chicken’ on their buffet and on their menu. In the evenings on weekends there is live music provided by local artists. The restaurant has a very pleasing dining environment for both families and couples. The wait staff is very friendly and very helpful with decisions on which entrée to select.
The Brown County State Park is a rugged hilly area with walking, biking, horseback trails and vehicle roadways. After a day exploring all that the park has to offer, it is very nice to return to your room and not have to leave the park to do this.
My family and I are making plans to revisit the Abe Martin Lodge this summer. We recommend that if you have an opportunity to do so – that you do too.
