French Lick lodge description

The Grand Lodge at Elk Ridge Ranch is located just 9 miles from the French Lick resort and Casino. Near Patoka Lake - just 12.8 miles. Near the scenic White River - 8 miles. Located in the beautiful rolling hills of southern Indiana in the heart of the hoosier national forest.

Hay wagon rides can be arranged on-site. Plus there's a vineyard, berries, wildlife on 120-acres. Grand Lodge has a private martial arts workout outbuilding gym with a mirrored studio and gymnastics mat. You may add access to our full gym with 2000 sq. feet full weights room, three cardio machines, yoga room. Plus....a private par three golf course, a stocked fishing pond, bon fire pit and sauna.

This is a perfect property for a large family gathering or a corporate meeting and retreat. Room for several RV's too!

PRIVATE GET AWAY !
This place is remote and private. The entire property sits on a wooded hilltop. The property is surrounded by an 8 foot fence. Once you come up the hill and close the 8-foot double gates you can leave the outside world behind or enjoy the many tourist activities in the French Lick area.

Many guests enjoy the huge outside deck for sunbathing.

If you are looking for a very private meeting or party, this is it.

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2000

                      About the owner: We are Dave & Wendy Marshall with our 20 year old son Rob we work and manage the ranch and the business. Former Telecom executives- We built this Grand Lodge and the Majestic as our weekend vacation home and family compound. Each weekend we flew our corporate plane in to the French Lick Airport (FRH) to escape the cold weather of Michigan. Here in Southern Indiana, we enjoy the slower pace of life, the nature and having a private family golf course was not so bad. We think that you too will find that things slow down here and that you too will enjoy the time here with family in our beautiful log lodge. Our life and business ventures now include the lodge rental business- Where we rent out our two lodges: Our properties are: The Grand Lodge listed here and, our other and much larger lodge just down the road- The Majestic Lodge. The Majestic is designed for larger groups and it is where we host many wedding in the Lavender and the Vineyards. FITNESS BUSINESS TOO: We also manage our fitness and detox business where we do a 6 and 10 day live on the ranch- It is an Herbal detox and fitness boot camp. Our claim to fame here is an average of 14 pounds weight loss in just six days. There are two programs that we manage: www.DetoxOasis.net & www.FitBodyRetreat.com If you care to see our fitness book you can find it on Amazon : Marshall Law From Raw foods To Red Meats. WEDDINGS ARE A BIG PART OF OUR BUSINESS: On site at Elk Ridge Ranch we host many indoor and out door weddings in the Vineyards, or among the Lavender fields that we have created. We are currently building an 85' foot Labyrinth from our Lavender plants and every year we try to improve the grounds on the ranch for your enjoyment. The entire family is into Avaition and fitness sports- We hope to meet you soon!

                      Why the Owner Chose French Lick:
                      Why this property? When we selected the spot for the Grand Lodge it was initially based on location- We wanted a vacation home that was less than a two hour flight one way for a weekend vacation home Then it was the warmer weather- It is always much warmer here than where we lived in Michigan. Here we get 3 cold months a year and much better spring, summers and beautiful colors in the fall We also liked the wooded lay of the land as a great spot to put up high fence for our Elk and Buffalo as raising our own grass fed organic meats are important to us. We also wanted gentle rolling hills to build our personal / private golf course- Our golf course is a huge hit just because it is invitation only for our friends and its also available only to renters of our Majestic lodge and our Grand lodge. Keep in mind- this is quite possibly the worst golf course in the USA but it is quite difficult and it is very beautiful as its fairways are lined with grape vines and lavender plants Here you can shoot Clay pigeons, handguns, have a bon fire, play golf, fish and make some noise if you wish. And nearby in French Lick, there are activities of all types to keep you amused. Although we are deep in the woods (The Hoosier National Forest) we are 15 minutes from a 5 star hotel and world class steak house- We feel our location is a perfect balance of remote ranch living and activities in town that compare to some of the finest attractions in other better know resort towns.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Lodge:
                      Unique Benefits of our property? My needs were that the place would be Private - and it is just that ! Shared weight gym with the other lodge and owners The Grand Lodge offers a custom entrance with a pewter carved buffalo on one side of the door with an elk carved in bronze on the other side of the door. The hibachi grill in the kitchen rivals that of Benihana's grills and separates the living area from the kitchen with a marble bar with seating for six. The kitchen is all commercial grade appliances and comes stock with all of the plates, pots and pans that you will need. The wrap around deck is a great place to sit and rock in a chair and enjoy the morning coffee and that glass of wine in the evening. The back deck is HUGE! a great place to sun bath and enjoy a nice dinner on the deck. Our gym is a full on weight and cardio gym, we train clients here and it has every piece of equipment that any trainer or athlete would ever want or need. The other gym on site is a great place to let the kids play in the event the weather is not cooperating plus, it is large enough we have used it for boy scout camping and have had over 40 kids sleep there! Our sauna is large and relaxing and we believe that you too will enjoy the unique qualities of our Grand Lodge. More stuff... The Grand Lodge a Luxury Log Home on one site- or our huge Majestic Lodge on the other site down the road. The Lake is nearby for pontoon rentals or water skiing and Paoli Peaks is nearby for Snow skiing Shooting ranges on both properties Your own almost totally Private Golf course
