The Abe Martin Lodge is located in Brown County State Park
on a 16,000 acre wooded preserve
among rolling hills,
The largest state park
in Indiana, it includes Weed Patch Hill, which,
at an elevation of 1,058
is one of the highest points in the state.
Built in 1932 of hand-hewn native stone and
oak timbers cut in the park,
the Main Lodge has two spacious and comfortable
lobbies with two fireplaces.
A rustic dining room makes eating a pleasure.
Abe Martin says: "You
just can't go away hungry."
There are thirty rooms in the Main Lodge,
with another 54 in the annex.
There are also a number of state park cabins near the lodge.
In 2008 an indoor aquatic center was added with a zero entry pool, water slide and whirlpool.
