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.

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!

Great place to stay

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!

Family getaway

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!!!!

I wanted to take the grandchildren and daughters on an adventure and found this place wonderful place in the hills of Indiana. We said we were in God's Country. No cell phone reception (home phone available). The house was very clean, and accomodations were perfect. You can not view the lake front from the home due to the trees, but there is a short path that will take you to the water . The kids enjoyed hours in the pool every day, the pool is large, well kept as well as the surrounding pool area (nice picnic table with umbrella as well as a patio furniture, table, with umbrella. Additional water toys, kick ball, bat,and ball are available for kids to enjoy. We took hikes down the tree lined water front and saw an eagle. (there is an eagle's nest right near by). It is pet friendly and the owner's dog "Kong" was a hit with the kids, we enjoyed feeding him scraps. Jeff and Lisa live on the 1st floor and were invisible most of the time but available should we need them. Privacy was not an issue. My favorite time was swinging in the swing on the patio with my granddaughter watching the older kids play ball. We took a trip to Jasper for a girls day of pampering and a trip to Louisville to the Louisville Slugger Museum which is not far away. The only issue we had was that our vacation ended to quickly!! I hope to return again. Thank you Jeff, Lisa, and Kong for a memorable vacation and sharing a little bit of God's country with us!

Mother/Daughter/Grandaughter Getaway

I wanted to take my oldest daughter and Grandaughter (5 months old) where we would have peace and quiet and have a swimming pool to enjoy to ourselves. The pool was clean and well maintained and the owners dis not use itwhen we were there. They did check on us a few times and were available if we needed anything. They were kind, polite and friendly, even helping us carry in all our gear. I was pleasantly surprised to find a huge, clean, well taken care of grill, right outside our door, in which the electronic igniter worked the very first try. It is out in the middle of no where and was exactly what we were looking for. But I would recommend picking up your groceries first, because you won't want to leave right away. We found everything we needed on the inside, great cook ware, happened to be the same i use at home, Farberware

I have two younger adopted kids and can't wait to return to it with them and my husband. This was the ideal place I was looking for, although I was a little leary in the beginning, since there weren't many reviews, but I followed my instincts and was not disappointed. By the way it's Pet Friendly. Next time our pets will be going with. There are a couple of country dogs, but they are very friendly! We received our deposit refund in less than a week, I gave it a 5 star rating for the atmosphere, the pool, the friendliness and helpfulness of the owners, the privacy and many other reasons.
