Keywords: Leave the city life behind, 1500 sqft lodge, fully equipped with all the luxuries of home, relax and take a deep breath of nature.
My husband and myself left the busy city
life of Fort Wayne, Indiana and decided to
make a change. We bought this house
which use to be a barn, and converted the lower area into a vacation rental. We want our guest to see a little part of
God's Country. We are self employed,
we love animals and enjoy the wildlife.
We enjoy the lake, golfing, and our
inground swimming pool as much as we can. There so much to see and do
in Southern Indiana, its a hidden secret.
Jeff and Lisa Nicely purchased this lodge in 2004
We bought this home because of the location and Patoka Lake. We never knew how beautiful Southern Indiana
was, until we actually moved here. Living in the country is far enough away from the busy towns yet only 45 miles from majors cities like Louisville.
We enjoy watching a Bald Eagle, fly over the house, and then later discover his nest, and watch him feed his young, we love the water activities, swimming, fishing, boating, we love to play golf
once a week, and take a deep breath of country air.
This was such a last minute trip for us, but we were so glad we found this place and were able to stay here! It's not too far from things, and it had everything there that we needed in the rental. Very clean and cozy place, a lot of room to do things, and a huge yard where you can walk down to the water and have a campfire. We all had so much fun and can't wait to be able to go back! The owners were so nice and accommodating we couldn't have asked for better people. Thank you so much, it was an incredible weekend away with the kids!
We met our children and grandchildren from KY here and had a great time before the kids had to get back to school. There is so much to do close by we all wished we could stay longer! Everything was clean and ready for us. We brought our food and everything else we needed was there for us. There was a nice yard for the kids to play in and the pool was super for the kids. Kong was the friendliest dog and awesome with the kids! It was a great place to get away from the phones, computers, etc and spend time with each other off the grid! Thank you Jeff and Lisa for everything. All of us would definitely recommend this rental!
We brought the kids down for a long weekend before everyone heads back to school. Lisa and Jeff are so welcoming, its as if you made have a friend for life. When we were late arriving, they called to check on us to make sure we were not lost. The house was great. It was clean and had everything we needed, we just brought our food and towels for the boat. We enjoyed the lake during the day, then came back to the house for a swim, dinner on the grill, then ended the night with a bon-fire and a game or two of cards. The atomosphere was so peaceful. We were only there for a short time but had one of the best vacations we had with the kids. Thanks again Jeff and Lisa. We would love to come back!!
We had a great time on our visit! Everything was there that we needed, only had to bring the food for the grill. The best part was that our dogs got to go on vacation with us too! So hard finding pet friendly vacation rentals! Would definitely visit again and recommend!
Love this place & will stay again!
We do a "girls weekend" every year. I found this great place on VRBO.
We were a bit leery because the owners live on site. We had never stayed somewhere where the owners were right there. However, Jeff & Lisa were/are awesome!
There were 7 of us. We had plenty of room and the space is very open & clean. We have stayed in several other places, but this was the first that had all of the utensils & cookware that we needed!
We all hung out by the pool the first night and it was so nice. Kong, the dog, is so sweet & is very well behaved. We also had a fire in the fire pit. Plenty of firewood available. Thanks to Jeff & Lisa stopping by, Jeff helped us make a great bonfire.
Saturday we all hung out in the pool. Nice patio furniture & they even had floats & noodles for us to use.
One of the main things that I noticed is that the bed sheets smelled so clean! At other places we have stayed, the bedding smelled like nothing or even stale. The sheets at Jeff & Lisa's smelled like fabric softner. I felt like I was home!
With 7 of us women, we never ran out of hot water in the shower, which has been a problem in the past.
Cell Phone coverage is a bit limited, but who needs that when you have a landline in your room!
Overall, this is a wonderful place to stay. Jeff & Lisa, thank you for your hospitality.
We will be back next year!
This place was absolutley wonderful. Very clean and very peaceful. Our family of four pulled our boat down and enjoyed patoka lake. On the days we did not go out on the lake we took a trip into French Lick for the indoor water park and took another day to go to the Marengo caves. Southern Indiana has so much to offer. It was a step back to get back some real family time. With no electronics or cell signal, which was the way we wanted it, we enjoyed having game night with popcorn and our children almost everynight. The inground pool was amazing and super clean and warm. It was so relaxing to come off the lake and spend the later part of the evening in the pool. Very, very peaceful and relaxing. Our family will be going back next year!! THANKS JEFF AND LISA!!!!
Nearby attractions include, Holiday World, Marengo Caves, Indoor Karting, Big Splash Water Park, Paoli Peaks, Golf Courses, Indoor Tennis, Hemlock Cliffs, French Lick Casino, French Lick Winery, Indoor Laser Tag, Patoka Lake Marina, Mc Donalds and just RELAXING!!!!!
