Manager info

Year Purchased: 2004

About: We are a small family who bought and renovated this property by hand. We love to relax on the front porch. We often use the home throughout the year when we travel.

Why French Lick:
We bought this house to allow us to spend time with family and enjoy all that French Lick has to offer. There is so much for our children to do in town with the waterpark, karting, movie theatre, and golfing. We have been vacationing here with family and decided to buy this house as it is more comfortable for us than a hotel room.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We love our home because it is very comfortable and has everything we need to enjoy our stays. My favorite thing to do is cooking in the kitchen with my father in law. We love being a short walk from the French Lick Hotel and downtown.
