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.

Good Place To Stay

  • 4 of 5

Really enjoyed our family get together at The Lodge. Plenty of room & comfort for a group of 12 people. The facility was nice & clean and inviting upon arrival. Would have like to have been able to have an earlier check-in time, even making it two hours earlier at 300pm instead of 500pm would have been great. But not enough of an issue to keep us from considering renting the property in the future. No internet access and cell phone reception was very poor, if any at all. But that was ok, as it made us revert to an earlier time when technology didn't rule our lives and we enjoyed the company of family members talking, playing games & having a great time. It was nice being away from the hustle & bustle of everyday modern life. Thanks for everything, we definitely enjoyed our stay.

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!

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.

Great time away

  • 5 of 5

The Lodge is a very nice place to go to get away. Remember the map to get there.. The lodge is nicely finished in side and the 5 kids had a wonderful time in and around the place. Nice LARGE table on the back deck is a wonderful place to sit in the morning and have a cup of coffee and listen to the birds.

Inside the kitchen has everything you need. well except food. Remember to bring that with you. The closes grocery is 20 minutes away in English. But if you remember everything (i didn't) there are two large fridges to hold everything. Nice stove and really nice breakfast bar to eat at.

More beds than you know what to do with and two nice areas to sit inside and talk. A nice place upstairs to sit and relax and another place down stairs with several comfortable places to sit.

This is a good place for the summer and looks to be a nice hunting lodge in the cooler months. There is a very nice wood burning stove on a two story stone hearth.

This on a point in the lake, there is a nice boat ramp just around the corner.

If you do not own a boat there is a nice marina to rent one which is what we did and had a great day on the lake.

We are looking to try and go back again next year.

Great for a weekend with the Girls!

  • 5 of 5

I work in a hair salon with 20+ girls. Each year we rent the cabin and have a blast!! It is a great and inexpensive place where all of us can go and take a weekend off work. The cabin was very clean and there was plently of room for all of us without feeling cramped. The drive way is big and has plenty of room for your boat. The Little Patoka Boat Ramp is close and convienient. The back yard is big and has plenty of room for cornhole and other fun activities. It also, has a fire pit to make smores!! Bring your bug spray. I would highly recommend The Lodge! I plan to take my family there this year as well.
