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.

Great home away from home had everything.

  • 5 of 5

We loved it. We are going to set date for longer time to stay and see more of the stuff around the cabin. May take family with their kids. They had movies games and stuff for children. But still close to lake and maybe a trip to French Lick casino. Be sure to look at attractions near by it is close to a lot. The lodge is cozy yet in woods. Even has room to Stretch out and play if it rains with the bunk room. GREAT TIME!!!

Wonderful week near Patoka Lake

  • 5 of 5

We just spent 7 days at this cabin with our kids and grandkids and two Boston Terriers, it was a great place with plenty of room for all of us. If you are looking for somewhere where you can enjoy seeing wild life and being in the middle of nature this is your place. It is within 30 - 40 minutes of several different attractions, we took the kids to the beach, to an indoor water park, a cave and on a train ride. Mark, the owner was extremely easy to work with and his manager who lives nearby was also very helpful and friendly. Another great vacation for our family!

Wonderful Fall Retreat

  • 5 of 5

We have spent fall break in the cabin in 2013 and 2014. We love it. The owner is responsive to request, the neighbors are friendly and helpful. We made family memories that will last a lifetime! . The cabin is large enough to support a large crowd, yet it is still cozy and comfortable.

We look forward to our next stay.

But in most part that is up to our guest to be sure they bring their glasses half full, we have some very pleasant and family loving guest! Thanks for your review Mark

A wonderful get away from it location!

  • 5 of 5

My Film Crew of Actors, Models along with some family recently stayed at this location. It was a little hard to find the first night, but one of the Women who helped take care of it along with her husband came to find all of us.

This is a very nice place, but be prepared that it is a little off the beaten path. Of course that worked for our needs. Only issue we had really had nothing to do with the niceness of the Lodge itself, but cell phone and WI-FI are out of the question for the most part.

Only one out of our six cell phones worked, but we were told that might happen so no big surprise there.

Just remember this is a fairly remote location even thought there are some neighbors nearby. Overall we loved the place and would recommend it for a great getaway modern civilization.

Owner's Response: We are off the beaten path that's for sure, we are on a road that was there before the lake and it runs right into the lake. This makes it great for the kids to ride their bikes do to very little traffic. The cell service is spotty AT&T seems to work best at this time. Thanks for taking time to write this review. Mark
