We loved having our wedding at the Abe Martin Lodge. We used the Allison Peabody room for our ceremony and the Melodeon room for our reception. We found all the staff to be very friendly and easy to work with. I would say that of all the great reasons to pick this venue, the food is not one of them - it was totally fine, just nothing to rave about. Still who goes to a Brown County wedding just for the food. Advice about planning there from afar (we're based on north side of indy): even if you see the space when you book it, it is very helpful to plan to go down a month or two out and go through everything with the event planner on staff - cuts down on back and forth in email/on phone. I found their staff to be very responsive, but do see that it would have been even easier on everyone to have just made time to go walk through everything in person during the planning of the finer details.

The room service during the wedding was excellent, and they helped tear down afterward. It was the perfect place for our wedding!

The Abe Martin Lodge was the perfect place for our wedding! This is a hidden gem in Nashville IN and I highly recommend it! Great outdoor setting with lots of room inside for the reception. I am an Event Planner and they surpassed even my high expectations. Their staff is very knowledgeable and versed in the event world and know their space inside and out. They gave me suggestions that I hadn't even thought of. Thank you to the Abe Martin Lodge for my our special day magical!
