It's been several years since we have visited the dining room at Abe Martin Lodge. Went there for lunch a few days ago. The venue has a charming, comfortable, "Brown County-ish" ambiance, pegged oak flooring and the like. The menu is not huge, but there were plenty of salads, sandwiches, and combos offered for lunch, as well as breakfast offerings... More

Stayed in a family cabin which is much better than a typical room at the lodge. Great location and all the staff I have met were very friendly and helpful. Probably won't do the water park as I forgot my swim suit. The cabin was clean but nothing fancy though. What u would expect from state lodging. ....clean but nothing... More

Stopped in here for coffee and sat by a relaxing fireplace. It was over Thanksgiving weekend. The decor was cute and "woodsy".

I always enjoy visiting Nashville Indiana to view the gorgeous fall scenery and end my visit with a fantastic meal. We chose the buffet meal at the seemingly lovely dining room, which it was. The variety of food was pretty decent, although not exceptional in taste.It will do if you are hungry and want a relaxing meal. The big disappointment... More

Abe Martin Lodge Rustic Cabin is for sure just that! Rustic! Cabin did not look as though it had been cleaned or linens washed. The door was unlocked when we entered. The smell was musty and the bedspread was dirty. We were not expecting a lot out of the rustic cabin. However, we were hoping it would have been touched... More

It's a restaurant in a state park. You won't find foodie items on the menu. Food is OK, not great. Evening offered a buffet that featured a large salad bar. Wish I had stuck with my original intention to just have a salary. Chicken was way over cooked and dry. Sides were the same you can find anywhere. Don't expect... More

Food bland. Nice atmosphere. Don't expect anything here to tickle your tastebuds. Just looking for a cozy kind of place, though, this would be it.

We ate at the Little Gem twice during our recent stay. On both visits we had great service and good food. The food is genuine southern Indiana comfort food at very reasonable prices. Friday morning breakfast was from the menu. The omelette ordered was stuffed with toppings. The biscuits and gravy was some of the best this writer has eaten.... More

This place is fantastic. Went there is early spring when the weather was still cool and really want to return when the weather is warmer. Would be a fantastic place to stay in the fall. It's a nature lovers dream. The restaurant has very good food too!
