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 Big Barn Main Lodge 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- Big Barn Main Lodge. The Big Barn Main Lodge is designed for larger groups. 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. If you care to see our fitness book you can find it on Amazon : Marshall Law From Raw foods To Red Meats.
Why the Owner Chose Shoals, IN, USA:
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 Main Lodge/Blanche House 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. In nearby French Lick, there are activities of all types to keep you amused PGA golf courses, train museum and polar express, go-carting, miniature golf, big splash adventure water park, bowling and arcades, laser tag, movie theatre and a winery. 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. Or private 3- season gym at Grand Lodge. 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 comes stocked with most all of the plates, pots and pans that you will need. If creating a specialty dish. Please ask. 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 Main Lodge 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 Grand Lodge 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! More stuff... The Grand Lodge a Luxury Log Home on one site- or our huge Main Lodge on the other site down the road. The Patoka 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
