                        We have stayed at this cabin twice now, and both times have had a great time. It's very clean, spacious and fully furnished as stated in listing. The covered back deck area is wonderful for sitting outside in the evening enjoying the scenery. I would highly recommend this cabin to any of my friends.

                        I rented this cabin for my family's end of summer getaway and it was a total blast. The cabin was more than enough for 8 adults and 5 children. We loved the back porch and the woods were great for the children to explore and look for bigfoot. The kitchen had everything you needed including 2 refridgerators that we packed full of food. The owners we helpful in setting up our reservation and were quick to respond to emails. We will definitly reserve this cabin again and would recommend it to any of our friends.

                        My family and I really enjoyed our stay at The Lodge. It was hot and muggy during our stay but the A/C in the cabin was fantastic! Very, very comfortable. The beds were very nice and comfortable as well. Overall, a nice, clean place. Some people have written some bad things about the bugs....well, there were bugs outside...but, you are inthe woods!!! We didnt have any trouble with bugs inside at all. Like I said, very clean and super comfortable. A nice mix of rustic with modern...for the most part...I mean, after all, it is a cabin/retreat...not a 5 star Hilton!! As long as you don't expect the Hilton, you will be more than satisfied....believe me when I say it was way nicer than we expected to get!!! I would say that if I had to find any fault at all with what we were promised and what we got was the fact that the ad says free firewood. You only get a small bag of cut wood to start a fire with.....would last about an hour and thats it. Other than that...were were seriously impressed...So much so that we would have no problem whatsoever booking it again. Very relaxing and room for lots and lots of people!!!

                        Owner response: Thanks for the review! We love to hear feedback from our guest and are glad you all enjoyed your stay. We regret we had to stop the supply of free firewood, due to cost we can only allow the first one for free, and then extra is available onsite for a small fee. Once, again we are glad you stayed with us and hope you come back and see us!

                        We are a family of 14...12 children ages 5-23. Our stay at The Lodge was very agreeable. From there, we did some boating an Patoka Lake, hiking, and caving. The Lodge was very clean, comfortable, and spacious...felt very much at home. It would've been nice spending more time just lounging around there. The owner was very kind and helpful in scheduling our stay.

                        I've used this cabin a 2 occasions, each time has been an enjoyable experience. A couple minutes away from boat ramp for spring crappie/bass fishing and public hunting locations all around in the fall. The cabin has a rustic feel that makes it easy to relax.

                        The Lodge is a very nice place to go to get away. Remember the map to get there.. The lodge is nicely finished in side and the 5 kids had a wonderful time in and around the place. Nice LARGE table on the back deck is a wonderful place to sit in the morning and have a cup of coffee and listen to the birds. Inside the kitchen has everything you need. well except food. Remember to bring that with you. The closes grocery is 20 minutes away in English. But if you remember everything (i didn't) there are two large fridges to hold everything. Nice stove and really nice breakfast bar to eat at. More beds than you know what to do with and two nice areas to sit inside and talk. A nice place upstairs to sit and relax and another place down stairs with several comfortable places to sit. This is a good place for the summer and looks to be a nice hunting lodge in the cooler months. There is a very nice wood burning stove on a two story stone hearth. This on a point in the lake, there is a nice boat ramp just around the corner. If you do not own a boat there is a nice marina to rent one which is what we did and had a great day on the lake. We are looking to try and go back again next year.

                        I work in a hair salon with 20+ girls. Each year we rent the cabin and have a blast!! It is a great and inexpensive place where all of us can go and take a weekend off work. The cabin was very clean and there was plently of room for all of us without feeling cramped. The drive way is big and has plenty of room for your boat. The Little Patoka Boat Ramp is close and convienient. The back yard is big and has plenty of room for cornhole and other fun activities. It also, has a fire pit to make smores!! Bring your bug spray. I would highly recommend The Lodge! I plan to take my family there this year as well.

                        This is a very private setting, no traffic, walk to the lake, short drive to boat ramp, large roomy, kids had a blast. Has adequate space for 3 families of 4. Very well equipped kitchen. Do bring some DVD’S to settle the kids down at night. We will be back! Dean Family

                        We recently spent a week at PTL. We were extremely disappointed in the condition of the property. It was in need of vacuuming and dusting. Our daughter had to vacuum the living room floor of bugs and wipe dirty footprints from the kitchen floor. The playground equipment was dirty and not usable by our grandchildren. The grill had not been recently cleaned. It is not "on the lake" as advertised. The TV/VCR/DVD was usable but did not include TV reception as one was led to believe. There was a live cockroach on the ceiling during our first meal there, thus we had to make sure our food was well sealed and also stored some of it in vehicles overnight. We found several D-Con (mouse poison) pellets upstairs. Because of this we called the owners and had negotiated a $100 reduction in the price. After reading our initial review of the property posted on this website he contacted our daughter (who had negotiated the $100 reduction). Because of our initial review he has chosen not to refund the $100. She did, however, get the $200 damage deposit back after several phone calls and emails to the owner. We do not recommend this property to other vacationers.

                        Owner response: I do apologize to this family, I am truly sorry they did not enjoy their stay at the Lodge. I hope their future tri-state reunions work out better for them. But to our future guest. We will strive to see that your stay is as enjoyable as possible. Please inspect the Lodge upon your arrival, and bring any, and all short comings to our attention as soon as possible. Please do not wait until your 3rd nights stay, and then call and request a refund. Our on site manager Brenda, and myself will be more than happy to address any problems. Thank You for taking the time to read our reviews. Mark Just

                        Our family had been trying since June to rent a cabin at Patoka Lake so we could enjoy a family fun weekend. Finally due to a cancelation this property opened up. Our children ages 10 & 11 loved it. As soon as we arrived as they ran through the cabin staking claim on their sleeping quarters, which ended up being the loft. The kids each had a friend along and after the first night all 4 kids stated this place is better than Great Wolf Lodge! The cabin had plenty of space all cooking utensils provided bedding, towels etc. Close access to little patoka boat ramp with bait shop small store along the way very convenient. There is ample parking at the cabin for your boat cars etc. We enjoyed it so much we plan to book again and have recommended this spot to several of our friends.

                      Year Purchased: 1987

                      About the owner: My wife and I purchased this property in the late 1980's. We loved being outdoors going boating, fishing, and hunting. I began building The Lodge in the early 1990's. We have used the property for family vacations and a place to stay on the weekends. As our children grew older we began using the cabin less and less. We now enjoy allowing other families to create some of the same memories I have created with my family.
