"It’s the 2nd time our family reunion of 25-30 people has rented the Grand Lodge & Blanche House at Elk Ridge Ranch. It’s wonderful knowing that there are so many beds that we never have to worry about how many family members will show up. As of our July 2015 visit, it can sleep 35 people in 12 bedrooms (even more than last year). And we totally love the giant commercial kitchen with its loads of fridge/freezer space, extra big ovens, huge stove-top griddle for pancakes/eggs, 3 tub sinks and all sorts of utensils, pans, pots etc, even in very large sizes that you need when cooking for a large group. The owners, Dave & Wendy, were exceptionally friendly and worked hard to be sure we enjoyed our stay – showed us how to use the theater popcorn popper, computer projection equipment, ovens and even helped us with entertainment. We’ve rented several places in the past and never seen anything like them or their ranch. The buildings are very sturdy so we don’t worry about the kids damaging anything. The surrounding land is so big, we enjoyed playing golf on the grounds, fishing in the pond, having bonfires, and petting goats. There was also a lot we did in the area like Holiday World, a public pool, winery and French Lick Casino & Resort."

"We rented in July 2014 and then came back for 2015. We really like the close access to the beach across LSD, the many places to relax including the bright and spacious 3 season room, deck, patio with yard, and the big living room with plenty of windows and fresh air! We have a small dog, so its perfect with the yard for him to wander. Owners are delightful. 3 of the bedrooms are small with single beds and 1 with a queen. Kids used the basement as a dorm to hang out do their thing. It has a 3 single beds too. Great place to entertain since we had a few friends visit for a cook out. Parking easily holds 4 cars. More if you want to butter them them up tight next to each other. Meets all our needs as a vacation destination and close to Chicago."

"Of all the wonderful things about this property, its location and surroundings tops the list. We stayed here for reunion gathering and it couldn't have been any better. The house itself has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The grounds are great to explore and provide insulation to the outside world. It is about 5 minutes away from anything you need but you felt like you were away from it all. We kept the windows open all the time so waking up in the morning to nothing but a few birds singing was so relaxing. I would return to stay again. The owners are great and communication was quick."

"Couldn't find a better place to stay for our 1st trip to South Bend/Notre Dame! The rooms were clean and beds were comfortable. An amazing breakfast to start both of our days. It was Southern hospitality in Northern Indiana!"
