About Mark Just

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.

Mark Just purchased this cabin in 1987

Home Away From Home

  • 5 of 5

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.

Amazing Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

Located in a secluded area, this was a beautiful location for a cabin getaway. The house is very large as well as nicely decorated. Accommodates space for more than enough people. 5 minute walk through the woods to the lake, large backyard with firepit. Highly recommended for numerous types of trips. A+++

Family Getaway

  • 5 of 5

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.

A June vacation

  • 5 of 5

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's 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!

Vacationing at The Lodge

  • 5 of 5

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.

Spring fishing/fall hunting

  • 5 of 5

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.
