We've stayed in a number of state park's. The family cabins are often a great options. Some parks have cabins that are a part of the lodge system and are more like motel rooms. Still nice but not the family cabin. The Family Cabin has 1 or more bedrooms, bathroom, kitchen, dining/living room, a porch (some large, some small) and plenty of the great outdoors nearby.
State Parks with cabins include: Potawatomie SP, McCormick's Creek SP, Shakamak SP, Potato Creek SP, Whitewater SP, and Chain of Lakes SP. I've stayed at those is red and enjoyed the stay and the cabins.
State Park Cabine offer a unique chance to live in the middle of what makes the State Park unique. The woods, the wildlife, and the trails. You wake up to the sounds of wildlife on many mornings. You can have your morning coffee on the porch listening to the birds, not the freeway.
Wow! What a beautiful, historic inn in Centerville, Indiana. This inn was built in the 1830s and is fabulous! Impeccably restored, sparking clean, spacious, personal touches and the gardens are just beautiful. I didn't want to leave! Oh yes, the breasfast is first-rate.
Award-winning gardens. Outstanding restaurant withing walking distance - Palais Royal.

The 42" plasma and bathroom TV allowed my boyfriend to watch the game, while I got ready and caught up on the news before dinner!
Every state park lodge/inn includes a restaurant. It is common for complete strangers to join in conversation.
Brown County State Park - Abe Martin Lodge Abe Martin Lodge is the oldest lodge in the system. There are numerous cabins also available
McCormick's Creek State Park - Canyon Inn
Canyon Inn is another old inn. Brick and block construction has been updated and additional rooms added in the same style. The building looks over a wooded ravine and hosts numerous bird feeders around the restaurant, where you can have dinner with the birds.
Clifty Falls State Park - Clifty Inn
The original Inn burned in the 70's, so this is an entirely new structure. The inexpensive rooms, are located on a parking court. The inside halls are onesided with windows on the other looking out. The deluxe rooms overlooks the Ohio River valley and every room has a balcony.
Pokagon State Park - Potawatomi Inn
Renovated in 2000, the Potawatomi Inn is very nice with pleasant rooms and sitting areas that look out over the lake. The restaurant overlooks the lake and is a pleasant place to watch the sun go down. Inn also has some family cabins located across the park.
Spring Mill State Park - Spring Mill Inn
Located on a bluff overlooking the valley with Spring Mill. You can walk to the historic town, but the uphill return can be tiring.
Turkey Run State Park - Turkey Run Inn
Turkey Run SP is west of Indianapolis. The Lodge is a stone building with interior log beams nestled in the woods. A few cabins serve as remote motel rooms just west of the building.
Fort Harrison State Park - The Fort Golf Resort and Conference Center
Have not had a chance to stay here. It is located in the Officer's Quarters of Fort Benjamin Harrison.
State Park Inns are wonderful places because they are in the middle of what makes the State Park unique. The woods, the wildlife, and the trails. You wake up to the sounds of wildlife on many mornings. Outside your window is not a strip mall of motels, restaurants and gift shops, no -------. It's trails, clouds, trees, and people having fun. Meals are just a short walk down the hall. Always a wonderful atmosphere with views out every window.
We spent a night at this cozy inn that overlooks the Ohio River. The inn consists of 3 smaller buildings and the main house. There are walking trails that connect the buildings together amoung the lovely gardens throughout the grounds. Our room was very clean and beautifully decorated. All the rooms throughout the inn have a mix of lovely anitques with modern conviences. There are fresh baked cookies available as well as a library full of books and movies. The inn also has a tennis court and bikes available for guests' use. In the morning coffee and orange juice are avaialbe and the rate includes a coupon for breakfast at the Overlook restaurant just down the street. The Overlook has delicous food(try the pancakes) and a wonderful view of the river. We definately want to visit this inn again.
Wonderful views, beautiful, yet warm and cozy decor.
Located on Hwy 46 just 17 miles from I-65, the Abe Martin Lodge is nestled deep inside Brown County State Park. They offer a lodge and cabins in a quiet, sylvan setting. Its a good way to enjoy the forest without the bugs and with running water and electricity. A room in the lodge is $86 dollars, a cabin is $51.
At night the dear come t the salt lick. They have a small outdoor chapel and easily affordable cabins. There are hiking trails surrounding the facility, and within one mile you have swimming and horseback riding. Down the road is the picturesque town of Nashville.
Approx. $75 per room per night
This place is right in the center of Corydon so there are plenty of things to do. This hotel has an indoor pool and an indoor hot tub, which is conveniently located right next to a workout room.
IN CHESTERTON THERE IS A PLACE CALLED INDIAN OAK INN. SINCE I LIVE AROUND HERE THERE IS NO NEED FOR ME TO STAY HERE. BUT IT IS SUPPOSED TO BE VERY NICE. SOME OF THE ROOMS LOOK OUT ON A LAKE AND SOME HAVE WHIRLPOOLS IN THEM. AND THEN OF COURSE THERE ARE ALL OF THE USUAL PLACES THAT EVERY TOWN HAS.
Well, since I live here. I like my home:)
However since my home is small I can't have you all over.:) There are many good and decently priced hotels, and motels. If you have many $$ then staying downtown in the Omni, or the Raddison you are right in the middle of downtown. For cheaper rates, stay outside the I-465 Beltway, rooms are much cheaper.
Hotel Nashville Resort in the heart of Brown County was a very nice stay. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub every day. It was surprising to find out many locals actually live there as most of the rooms are suites.
For a less expensive stay, request the only 'studio' room. All the other rooms are suites and include a kitchen and 2 bathrooms, and a living area. For a short stay. Our one-bedroom was just perfect!!
Remember to book very early for September/October reservations.
All stays include use of the pool and hot tub, and continental breakfast. Premises also includes one of the few nice bars in town and a restaurant.
French Lick Resort in French Lick ,Indiana
$85-$105 USD single occupancy
The resort is like living in the 1920's era.This was a popular resort for the Chicago crowd in the early part of the century.
Beautiful floral gardens,2 18-hole golf courses,8 indoor and 10 outdoor tennis courts,health spa and mineral baths,horseback riding,surrey rides,bowling,billiards,indoor and outdoor pools,wide variety of restaurants.
Motel 6. It is the right price and all of the hotels of this name are always very comfortable. The Motel 6 in the southeastern part of Indianapolis has fantastic showers! You will know what I am talking about should you take it upon yourself to go here!
Nashville Inn, in the hills of Brown County
I paid $169 for 2 nights, the room was more of a 1 bedroom apartment with a 2 person jacuzzi, and two baths
Beautiful views, jacuzzi's in room, indoor swimming pool, and hot tub, great food in the restaurant
There are lots of nice motels and hotels. There are places for the penny-pinchers and places for the big spenders. They are all very nice. In my hometown of Princeton, we have a Days Inn, Hampton Inn, and the Fairfield Inn.There are also a lot of little towns just minutes away that have Motel 6's and Super 8 Motels. There are places everywhere.
It depends. The cheapest would probably be around $30(US) and the most expensive is around $100. Nothing too bad.
They are all very nice and well kept. That's about all I can say. Some even leave a handful of mints on the beds each morning! Can't argue with that!
Holiday Inns, Best Westerns, any brand name you will find in local towns. Also check out the local hotels, ask to look around before you buy. The only time it is hard to walk into a hotel and have a reservation is around the Indy 500, Brickyard or Fall Rockville Covered Bridge Festival.
