About Wendy Henry (Marshall)
Dave & Wendy Marshall work and manage the ranch and the business. Our son Dan Marshall helps to ensure your stay is a comfortable experience. Former Telecom executives- We built this Grand Lodge and the Big Barn Main Lodge as our weekend vacation home and family vacation place. Each weekend we flew our corporate plane in to the French Lick Airport (FRH) to spend time with family. Here in Southern Indiana, we enjoy the slower pace of life, the nature and having a private family golf course and great neighbors. We think that you too will find that things slow down here and that you too will enjoy the time here with family in our beautiful log lodge. Our life and business ventures now include the vacation rental lodges and fitness retreats in southern Indiana. Our properties are: The Grand Lodge listed here. Our other much larger lodge just down the road- Big Barn Main Lodge with Blanche House. The Big Barn Main Lodge and Blanche is great for larger groups or smaller groups who require 7 bathrooms. FITNESS BUSINESS TOO: We also manage our fitness and detox business where we do a 6 and 10 day live on the ranch. If you care to see our fitness book you can find it on Amazon : Marshall Law From Raw foods To Red Meats.
Wendy Henry (Marshall) purchased this Lodge in 2000
Why Wendy Henry (Marshall) chose Shoals
Why this property? When we selected the spot for the Grand Lodge it was initially based on location- We wanted a vacation home that was less than a two hour flight one way for a weekend vacation home Then it was the warmer weather- It is always much warmer here than where we lived in Michigan. Here we get seasonal temperatures to ski at Paoli Peaks, enjoy the green blossoms and mushroom hunts in spring, warm summers at Patoka Lake and beautiful foliage in the fall. We appreciate the wooded lay of the land as a great spot to raise our own elk and grass fed beef. The gentle rolling hills were perfect to build our personal / private golf course. Our golf course is a huge hit since it is invitation only for our friends other special clients and renters of our Main Lodge/Blanche House and our Grand lodge. Keep in mind- this is quite possibly the worst golf course in the USA but it is quite difficult and it is very beautiful as its fairways are lined with grape vines, lavender plants, rock cliffs. One golfer described holes 3 and 4 as enchanted "Narnia." The PGA pros and caddies who stayed here in 2015 enjoyed the unique course. Ask about. safety permits or licensing for clay pigeon shooting or rifles. Have a bon fire, play golf, fish and make some noise if you want. In nearby French Lick, there are activities of all types to keep you amused PGA golf courses, train museum and polar express, go-carting, miniature golf, big splash adventure water park, bowling and arcades, laser tag, movie theatre and a winery. Although we are deep in the woods (The Hoosier National Forest) we are 15 minutes from a 5 star hotel and world class steak house. We feel our location is a perfect balance of remote ranch living and activities in town that compare to some of the finest attractions in other better known resort towns.
What makes this Lodge unique
Unique Benefits of our property? My needs were that the place would be Private - and it is just that ! Shared weight gym with the other lodge and owners. Or private 3- season recreation room at Grand Lodge. The Grand Lodge offers a custom entrance with a pewter carved buffalo on one side of the door with an elk carved in bronze on the other side of the door. The hibachi grill in the kitchen rivals that of Benihana's grills and separates the living area from the kitchen with a granite counter bar with seating for six. The kitchen comes stocked with most all of the plates, pots and pans that you will need. If creating a specialty dish. Please ask. The wrap around deck is a great place to sit and rock in a chair and enjoy the morning coffee or a glass of wine in the evening. The back deck is HUGE! a great place to sun bath and enjoy a nice dinner on the deck. Our Main Lodge gym is a full on weight and cardio gym, we train clients here and it has every piece of equipment that any trainer or athlete would ever want or need. The Grand Lodge gym on site is a great place to let the kids play for indoors activity in no matter the weather. We limit this property to 20 guests for regular rental. However, with special event arrangements we can accommodate several more. More stuff... The Grand Lodge a Luxury Log Home on one site- or our huge Main Lodge and Blanche House on the other site down the road. The Patoka Lake is nearby for pontoon rentals or water skiing and Paoli Peaks is close for Snow skiing Shooting ranges on both properties Your own almost totally Private Golf course
