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...

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...

My family and I have been here many times. I have children 4 - 13 in age. The pool area is super fun and not so big that you lose track of your kids. The food in the lodge is outstanding. Comfort food, not fine dining. There are a couple of posts about cleanliness. Lets get real for a minute...Its...

Spent a few days in the Brown County State Park and loved visiting the Abe Martin Lodge each day. This is a beautiful lodge, with warm log wood features everywhere. They have a small indoor water park which is perfect for younger kids. The lodge also has a large, beautifully appointed conference room that's ideal for weddings and parties. The...

The lodge looks nice enough from the parking lot and the lobby. It is certainly dated. There are not nearly enough electrical outlets for today's modern digital age. The Wi-Fi in our room was hit and miss. A bigger problem for us was that the ground floor room was cold and drafty. We set the thermostat on almost 80 degrees...

Thank you for staying with us and taking the time to write a review. Being in an older building, we do have challenges with electrical outlets being available to use for guest’s gadget needs. We are hoping to address this issue soon, and hopefully be more accommodating to everyone’s electronic needs. I would like to apologize for any climate issues...

Rented a one room "rustic" cabin for just my husband and I. Thank God we only stayed one night. The room smelled old and musty. There was dirt on the bed ruffle which had obviously not been washed in, well, ever! The bed covering was at least 25 years old and threadbare. I saw stuff all over the wooden floor,...

We stayed in a family cabin over the weekend and it was super dirt. It was so gross. My little girl who is a crawler, had a white onesie and within two minutes it was dark brown.

This is our second visit to Abe Martin Lodge. For the most part this place is nice and the decor is cool and rustic. This time around though we must have come during a slight renovation.
