My daughter and I have been meaning to check out the Abe Martin Lodge for some time, never been there in all my trips to Brown County. The weather in February, 2017 when we went was insane – 64 degrees. The attractive lodge, built in the 1930’s from onsite timber and stone, is nestled within the park but not hard...

Check in process was a fiasco - employee had no knowledge of inn & location of rooms & Asst Mgr Chris F. had no customer skills in handling situation. Food served @ the dinner was cold by the time it reached the table - rolls were hard as a rock - catfish was literally dripping in grease (totally inedible). The...

We took advantage of the winter 2-for-1 stay and had a comfortable king bed in a large room. Some rather sloppy repairs had been made to the wallpapered wall where two double beds had been and there was a stain on the carpet, damage to the bathroom door. The bath is small but adequate and they haven’t installed a bow-out...

My husband and I spent our honeymoon at the Abe Martin lodge 43 years ago and it is still just as beautiful as ever. The added incentive is the beautiful indoor waterpark. They have a two-for-one special is going on through the winter months. Our only disappointment was that we had to pay seven dollars to get into the park...

Thank you for your review! We are ecstatic to hear that you spent your honeymoon here, and continue to come visit.

We visit this beautiful park around 10 times a year. We were always interested in staying at the lodge and have even scoped the water park ahead of time. I would say the lodge is unique and most of the staff were friendly. The rooms are a little run down but have the potential for an easy refresh. Unfortunately we...

Thank you for letting us know about your stay. Unfortunately while you were here, we had to do some minor repair work to the lazy river portion of the pool. It was unforeseen, and did delay the opening of that portion of the pool for 2 hours. We hope that you reconsider, and come back to stay with us in...

I've stayed at the Abe Martin 3 times. Love the lodge and since I don't use the waterpark, always ask for a room away from it. The state park is beautiful and there is lots to do in Nashville. Ziplining and horseback riding are nearby. This is one of my favorite "getaway" places!

My family and I made a yearly trip to Brown County and stayed in the Brown County State Park Family Cabins every year from the late 1970's until 2005, and then started again in 2016. Years of memories of family games, big meals shared around the kitchen, and late night stories of years past were the norm for our weekend...

Thank you for your review of the Family Cabins. We take our reviews very seriously, and are investigating the issues that you had with your recent stay.

We took advantage of the 2 for 1 winter deal and it was great. It would be a perfect place to take kids as it has an indoor water park. Everyone was helpful and friendly! The multi purpose room with the fireplace was a nice place to relax after a long day. We will definitely go back!

Rented a family cabin and truly had a wonderful weekend with our grandchildren. We were very glad they were able to enjoy the water park although the lifeguards on Friday night seldom looked at the pool. They sat cross legged on their stand talking the whole evening. Their lack of attention needs to be addressed as this is a big...
