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.
First of all I want to say that Jeff and Lisa are awesome! Very personable and informative. I had a couple of conversations with Lisa prior to arriving and she was so helpful. The pool at the house was incredible, close proximity to Patoka Lake access. We went kayaking each day we were there and the water access was just literally up the road a mile or so at King's Bridge. We were there on one of the busiest weekends of the season (4th of July) and the areas we kayaked in were not heavily trafficked at all. We even saw two bald eagles and got very, very close in our kayaks.
If you are looking to enjoy the outdoors, this is a great place to stay! The pool, the grill and back patio, fully stocked kitchen and close proximity to the lake were just what we were looking for. We highly recommend this location!
Nice little getaway. The owners, Jeff and Lisa are very nice. Enjoyed the salt water pool very much! Grilled out every night, enjoyed the fire pit for making s'mores.
The property has a gorgeous setting and the accommodations were very clean and comfortable, the added attraction of the salt water pool topped off our trip. Everyday we would come back from activities and relax in the pool. We had picnic dinners on the patio, Bonfire and marshmellows at night. We felt very private also. We explored West Baden, French lick and the train. One day we stayed all day at Springmill Park, enjoying the pioneer village, the lodge for lunch, the awesome twin caves boat exploration and Virgil Grissom memorial. I also think another day going to Amish area would have been nice. It is a super mini vacation with varied activities. You could also do boating and horseback riding. We loved their very polite dog, Kong who visited us at times. He was no problem and the children had a good time with him. Thank you for a wonderful memory for our whole family!! Grandparents, son and daughter ,spouses and their children had a super bonding time!!
Lisa and Jeff are wonderful, and the place was clean and stocked with all items needed. All you need is clothes and food. The salt water pool will make you not want to swim in a chlorine pool again. The only thing I missed was my bed. We realized we are to old to sleep on a pull out sofa. There is one bedroom with a full/twin bunk but we gave it up to the kids. It is a great getaway I would recommend it.
Super nice couple. Lower level unit is just perfect for me when I come down to hunt.
The pictures do not do this house justice! It is spacious and clean and has absolutely everything you need for a wonderful vacation. We planned a last minute, Holiday World/Patoka Lake getaway with our four children (ages 16 and older) and one friend each - that makes 10 adults in this house (and, we brought our dog, too!). We had plenty of room and never ran out of hot water. And, the salt water pool, combo gas/charcoal grill and fire pit were all great extras. We enjoyed every minute of our stay. Thank you, Lisa, Jeff and Kong, for hosting our large crew. We will definitely be back!
