Places to stay in West Baden Springs
This is NOT your average place. :-) Somewhere between a resort and camping, Lost River Hostel is a nonprofit arts and cultural center located on a 16+ acre hillside in West Baden Springs. With the farmhouse on a hillside and the guesthouse in the forest, the hostel is a hub of conversation and inspiration. We offer a free dinner just after our nightly gratitude circle and also ask that our guests help with a simple chore in the morning to help contribute to the well being of Lost River.
There are wonderful places in this world that inspire us such as mountains, cathedrals, forests, fields, caves, and the sea. People inspire us too. Those who teach, who lead by example, who create, who perform, who follow their passions, and who radiate kindness. Those people that give you the sense of “if they can do it, so can I!” The Lost River Hostel blends both of these things; striving to build and maintain an extraordinary space fueled by a constant cycle of generosity and creativity. We hope everyone who stays here will go back into the world refreshed and rejuvenated – wanting to be better people and do great things. While there is no central religious belief system of those who live/work at the hostel, we do believe in making the world a better place and constantly learning new things as we go by providing a distraction-free, reflective space. In greater efforts to do this, we will also be hosting workshops and events related to music, writing, yoga, organic gardening, cooking, and environmental sustainability.
The joined towns of West Baden and French Lick are a beautiful little tourist spot located 3 minutes from the hostel. There you will find: West Baden Springs Hotel and Gardens / The cute downtown of French Lick / Paoli Peaks Skiing / Hoosier National Forest / The Shirley Creek Trail / French Lick Winery & Restaurant / Wilstem Ranch/Zip Lines / Indoor Karting / Big Splash Indoor Water Park / French Lick Casino
  • Coming here is always a wonderful experience. The hosts are super welcoming. If you love nature and art, definitely check this place out!

  • It’s a wonderfully transformative place full of good company and lots of laughs! I will miss this place until I’m back again!

  • I came to the Lost River Hostel needing a cheap place to stay for a business trip, but left with many new friendships and a renewed thirst for life. The main house is oozing with character, and the downstairs living area fosters connection between people of all backgrounds. It was cold and rainy for much of my stay, but I still enjoyed hiking the property and having a much-needed detox from the stressors of the outside world. I cannot recommend this place enough if you are at a point in your life where you need some peace and quiet to think, to meet new open-minded people, or to reevaluate your direction in life. I can say with certainty, I'm better off having stayed here.

  • Amazing!

  • This is a well thought-out and unique place to stay.

    Nancy2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • The place is just as it is described. Not your typical stay but so much fun and lots of unique features. It is camping with an air conditioned private room with a bed! The staff was super friendly and we got to meet new people from very different walks of life! Wish we had more time to spend with the staff. They were a very neat group of guys! Overall the experience was very unique and would love to return when we have more time to enjoy all it has to offer!

    Chad2019-08-17T00:00:00Z
  • This was my second stay at Lost River Hostel. As always, the kindness of the staff & beauty of the location are outstanding. Thank you, Scott & staff, for a relaxing time 'away from it all'.

    Angela2019-07-09T00:00:00Z
  • Lost River is a gem! The staff were all wonderful hosts and made us feel at home as soon as we met them. The guesthouse was whimsical and a wonderful place to hang out and get some rest. Be sure to take time to enjoy/walk the grounds, take a relaxing hot shower, and hang out with the wonderful staff around the fire. A perfect mix of camping and vacationing. Pack some shoes for hiking and you’re set for a great weekend getaway! We will definitely be back soon for this hidden piece of paradise.

    Located high on a hill overlooking the historic French Lick Resort and Spa. Charming Craftsman style home, walking distance to the hotel, casino, and downtown French Lick restaurants and shopping. Short drive to Patoka Lake. Well behaved, furry friends welcome.* (see 'other notes' for details)
    You can sit on the front porch swing and enjoy a cup of coffee in the morning. Then you can walk downtown and check out the unique shops. Walk over to explore the French Lick Hotel. Visit the Casino. Then take the trolley to West Baden and enjoy the beauty of the gardens and the dome. Have a nice dinner in any number of restaurants in French Lick. At the end of the day, enjoy sitting on the back deck and relaxing. A great place to enjoy your visit to French Lick!
    This home is located in a safe and quiet neighborhood. It is on a steep hill. If you walk down to the bottom of the hill, you are in the town of French Lick.
  • This place is wonderful to stay at. Everything is clean, comfortable, and clearly communicated. She makes sure basic daily necessities are taken care of (hair dryer, coffee, cooking spray, wine openers, etc). It is close walking distance to quite a few places to shop and eat, and you can easily walk to the French Lick hotel, where a free trolley can take you to the other part of town. We loved everything about our stay!

  • Julia’s home was beautiful! It was very clean when we arrived and is in a nice neighborhood. There was even a list of recommendations of places to go in the area. Julia was quick with responding with any questions we had. Anytime I messaged her I always got a reply within 10 minutes. Would definitely recommend this beautiful home!

    Mo2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • Great place for a family to stay. Clean, comfortable and near to all of your French Lick activities. We especially enjoyed the fooseball table and playing board games of an evening by the fire.

    Missy2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Julia’s home is lovely and full of charm. Great walking distance to many places and Julia always makes us feel welcome! Highly recommend!

  • Julia's place is a lovely home away from home. She is a great host and her house is very close to most restaurants and attractions. We had a great time in FLWB and enjoyed going back to her home to relax in front of the fireplace :)

    My place is close to French Lick Villas are within a short 15 min walk to down town French Lick, boasting multiple restaurants, shops, and even a museum. Also a 15 min walk to the famous French Lick Resort and Casino. . You’ll love my place because of the cozy space, with a secluded feel, but close to town.. My place is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).
    This is a cozy one bedroom upstairs unit in a 2 unit villa. I use the downstairs unit during this week long period. There is a TV in the bedroom and a TV in the common area. There is no HDMI cables on the TVs, but there is wifi if you want to bring your own electronics. There is a jetted hot tub in the bedroom and a shower in the bathroom. Also a front deck and a private back deck in the bedroom. A washer/dryer is shared in the villa. Guests also receive cards to access the French Lick Springs Resort. You can use the indoor/outdoor pools. Guests also get 10% off selected activities in the hotel. The adjacent hotel offers 3 golf courses, bowling alley and game room, several restaurants, gym, spa, and casino. The town is a 15 min walk, and offers many restaurants and bars. The local festival is during this rental period as well. I love this place and hope you will too
    This unit is a short walk, up a steep hill, nestled in a wooded area. Deer and wildlife are abundant in these woods. The area is very close to the local 400 room hotel and casino, and to the town at the bottom of the hill.

    James2019-11-25T00:00:00Z
  • Staying at Lost River Hostel was an experience I’ll never forget. I came away having learned so much from the staff and other guests and from the vision of the hostel. It’s truly a sacred space! Thank you!

    Marina2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Great place to stay and get out of the hustle and bustle of the city. Best part was the staff, very inviting and enjoyable to be around.

    Dustin2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful eco-lodge in backcountry Indiana. Super awesome friendly owner/staff. Incredible value including free dinner. I was just passing by but ended up staying an extra day just to relax and explore.

  • We didn't quite know what we were getting into and just wanted to leave the city for a little. This wonderfully hippie treehouse, green space was great. We loved the community aspect and space. From the compost toilets, to the muddy walk to and fro the cabin to the main house, to community dinner each night. I recommend this stay for longer than one night and in the warmer, dry seasons. We lucked out with unusually warmer but rainy weather. If you are looking to feel welcomed and appreciate and are a social being, I recommend. We look forward to bringing our families in the future and maybe some interaction with the free range chickens and that clay lagoon.

    Adriana2019-12-30T00:00:00Z
  • These people have become family in our brief 2 day work visit. What started as a cheaper hotel alternative became a wonderfully therapeutic haven of peace on the road. Thanks to everyone who works there!

    Glenn2019-11-18T00:00:00Z
  • WOW! I was blown away by my stay at the Lost River Hostel. This stay will put you in the woods of Indiana, and for a very reasonable list price you’ll have access to daily homemade dinners, outdoor showers/bathtub, walking paths, a swimming hole, and connections with some truly incredible people. I arrived during dinner on my first night and was immediately greeted in the main house by Alex, the hostel’s current manager. The cooks that night had kindly accommodated my request for a vegetarian option (and it was absolutely DELICIOUS). After dinner I was given a tour of the beautiful property, followed by a dip in the pond and hanging around the bonfire with the other guests and staff members. The following day, the staff had organized a trip to explore a nearby cave, but I instead decided on some self-care time walking the trails of the grounds and bathing in the outdoor bathtub; glorious and restorative moments beneath the cover of the forest. Later in the day I had another dinner with the guests / staff and made more connections around the bonfire, connecting over our lived experiences, favorite books, passions, etc. Everyone was incredibly kind and open. This is not your typical Airbnb experience. Come with the expectation of meeting others and breathing in the fresh air around you. Come knowing that the best place to be is in the common spaces, not in the confines of the basic rooms. Come with a spirit of cooperation and openness to others. This place is a DREAM - do not hesitate to book this living experience!

    Olivia2019-09-01T00:00:00Z
  • The place was completely in the nature, and they offered us dinner that was soo good..we hope to see them again:)

    Alessia2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy little gem in the peaceful woods. Amazing hospitality (invited to eat dinner with staff and other travelers), unique accommodations(swimming hole, outdoor shower, compostable toilets), and fun art drawn on inside walls of rooms.

    Elizabeth2019-06-28T00:00:00Z
  • Lost River Hostel is truly a magical gem in southern Indiana. It is a space that promotes healing, connects like-minded people and allows for retreat in nature. There are no strangers when you’re at the hostel and that’s one thing that I love the most. 😊

    Kara2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • The Hostel is a magical place. Scott and the community here are really building something special and it was an honor to be a guest to be included in their world. It really does seem to be a place based on trust, empathy, and love of voluntary simplicity. We stayed in the winter cabin and Scott very kindly gave us access to the adjacent bedroom, which my daughter loved. We got to explore at sunrise and watch the world quietly stretch awake and there was coffee waiting in the main house. Lost River is truly a great place to reconnect and disconnect and we we’re fortunate to have found it.

    Rachel2019-05-27T00:00:00Z
  • If you do not like the outdoors this is not the place for you. This place is great at an amazing price. Very chill and good vibes. Scott was very accommodating and easy going. Very satisfied with this experience.

    Susan2020-01-29T00:00:00Z

    Madison2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • We booked this place as it was affordable and close enough to Paoli Peaks for a weekend snowboarding trip. Unfortunately, due to the warm winter the mountain was closed so we came anyway and I am SO GLAD we did. We were able to walk around downtown, the three restaurants we went to during our stay were amazing. And Jessica was so sweet and helpful! We spent most of our time just relaxing, the house is so peaceful and clean. Jessica is so thoughtful with coffee, snacks, games. It was the perfect weekend away and we are already trying to plan our next stay here.

  • Spectacular! My family with 3 young children stayed while visiting family in the area over the holidays and I’m so glad we did. The price was comparable to the hotels in the area but at an unbelievable value. We had so much space to stretch out and relax. The house had beautiful decor and modern amenities mixed with “old house” charm. There were so many thoughtful touches that made it feel like home and it was spotlessly clean from front to back—my compliments to the thoughtful host and housekeepers. We would absolutely stay again!

  • The Gray House greatly exceeded our expectations! We really needed a weekend away for some quality family time and the setup of the house was just perfect for this. Nice open concept in kitchen, dining area and living room area allowed for kids to play board games while we cooked and could still interact with the them. Amazingly well stocked coffee and hot chocolate bar; two kinds of hot chocolate, several coffee options, several sweetener options, several creamer options, has keurig with pods and also the pod that allows you to use loose grounds with the keurig, to go coffee cups also provided. Many snacks and extras available, which my kids enjoyed. Even had fresh fruit there for us. Kitchen is very well stocked; there is even a crockpot available. The only thing I needed that I couldn't find was a whisk; I imagine not many people on vacation or a weekend getaway need a whisk. Everything in the kitchen works well. The sink is a little small and there is no dishwasher, so keep that in mind if you plan to do much cooking. There is also only one television and it is located in the downstairs media room. This was not an issue for my family, but could see how if you had very young kids wanting to watch cartoons and older kids or adults not wanting to, this might be something to consider so you could bring a laptop or tablet. The Wifi connection was amazing and we never had any service issues. Nice comfortable beds, plenty of nice pillow including extras we never needed; same with blankets. Also, plenty of nice towels; we were never in danger of running out. The lane back to the house is nice and long making the house secluded. We saw turkeys right outside the windows and several deer not far from the house. If there are night lights, I did not see or find them, so if this is something you need, pack a few. Entry into the home was easy. Shema was very helpful with information about questions I had regarding local activities. She also has a very quick response time. There are several fun family appropriate board games provided as well. Several books in one of the bedrooms also. Another nice touch was a bottle of water and two glasses in bedrooms. House was also very comfortable in terms of temperature; not at all drafty or cold. We had a great stay and would definitely consider staying again if we are ever back in that area.

  • This home is beautiful, comfortable and spacious! Our family had a great week here. The amenities were over the top! The location was central to our intended destinations. The layout was perfect for a family with teens, outdoor exploring, tv room and balconies. We hope to return next year.

    Melissa2020-01-30T00:00:00Z
  • It was a great place to stay with friends. It was secluded but not to far from town! I would recommend staying here!

    Shelly2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • We love Gray House, have probably stayed here six times since we began working in the area. Beautiful home, totally secluded, very generous amenities. Coffee station is tip top, kitchen has anything you need to cook, love having coffee on deck(when it's not freezing out!). Love that TV is in downstairs den so sound doesn't carry to bedrooms. Great value.

    Nicholas2020-01-10T00:00:00Z
  • Overall the place was nice. Scenary was also very nice. The town nearby offers a lot.

    Patrick2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful location. Very clean. Friendly host. Space has everything you need and décor is charming and sweet. We appreciated the ability to walk to Downtown French Lick and the hotel. We would absolutely consider staying at this location again in the future.

    Amy2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • This little place on Maple Street puts you close enough to walk to town to visit the many cute little shops. It has everything you need plus a kitchen. We enjoyed lounging at the end of a long evening in the cozy, comfy surroundings. We want to visit again.

    Vicki2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Great little place for a quick weekend get away. We were in town for an event at the train station and wanted something close to downtown. Was able to walk pretty much anywhere we wanted to go downtown along with the French Lick Hotel and Casino. Would love to come back and explore the golfing options for a weekend and would book here again in a heartbeat!

    Justin2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Walkable location to town and casino, good price, perfect for a weekend getaway in French Lick.

    Samantha2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • This space is efficient and has everything you need. It is within walking distance to eateries and everything in town. My niece and nephew loved the train history and we would definitely come again and stay here again.

Convenient location in the heart of French Lick and walkable to all the happenings around town, including the French Lick Resort/Casino. There is plenty of space to enjoy your getaway!
    Charming cottage right in downtown historic French Lick and steps away from restaurants, shops, spa, and resort/casino. Fully equipped kitchen, plus private patio, complete with gas grill.
    Quiet neighborhood with restaurants, library, fire/police department, post office, and school within a block.
  • Great little house for my family! Definitely within walking distance of almost everything and we had great weather for February. Very comfortable, plenty of towels and bedding, and James and Kathy were extra accommodating for us in our plans! Will definitely stay again when we come to French Lick. So much better than a hotel!

    Brianne2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Kathy & Jim were wonderful hosts. Check in was easy and the cottage exceeded expectations. This quiet getaway was everything we needed!

    Kathryn2020-01-20T00:00:00Z
  • This home was located in the heart of French Lick and was complete with all the amenities. Beautiful home!!!

    Julia2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful cozy place. There is coffee available which made my day! My husband and I were the only occupants but the 2nd bedroom upstairs with a full bath makes this home a great place for 4 people to still have privacy. We hope to come back next year!

    Robin2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • I booked this for my mom and her best friend. They wanted to meet halfway between their homes (Cincinnati and St. Louis) and hang for a couple days. They raved about the house and their photos are adorable. It was perfect for them to chill and drink wine but they also loved that they could walk to restaurants and shops. They also drove out to the winery and enjoyed it. They’re already planning a trip back! Both my mom and myself communicated with Kathy and she’s so lovely. Definitely recommend staying!

    Stacie2019-10-19T00:00:00Z
  • My only go-to place when we are in French Lick. Never disappoints.

    Craig2019-08-29T00:00:00Z
  • Location is perfect if you want to walk and explore the little downtown of French Lick or the French Lick Resort. Can take the train for free on to West Baden Hotel, which is a must. Public shuttle will also take you most places for free. But the location is also close enough if you don't feel like walking or waiting for your ride and just want to drive. Ample space, but cozy at the same time. Comfy beds, spacious kitchen, private patio with grill. Check-in and out was easy and Kathy communicated well.

    Brandie2019-08-20T00:00:00Z
  • This place is a hidden gem! It was so comfy and cute. As soon as we walked in, we were impressed. The space is definitely bigger than it looks on the listing! The kitchen was clean and had everything you could need. The living spaces were comfortable and perfect for a small group of friends! Sleeping arrangements were great, too. We will definitely be back!

The location is perfect and close to everything in town. We find the house to be so welcoming with cute decor and a cozy feel. Wesley is always wonderful to work with! Thank you again for another great weekend!

    Amanda2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • 100% one of the best Airbnb experiences I’ve had! This house was even better in person than the pictures. We stayed here for a wedding with a few other couples and there was so much space for everyone. Plenty of sleeping room and we even had plenty of space for 6 girls to get ready the morning of the wedding. Not only was there plenty of space but EVERYTHING in this house was comfortable. The couches, the beds and the over all feel. We really loved the special touch of fall all over the house and the extra amenities. It made our trip that much better. It was also very convenient to walk every where we needed to go. I would stay here every time I come to French Lick!

    Kristy2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • A great place to stay, you are withing walking distance from most social activities and even the neighbors are super friendly. I would definitely recommend them to my friends or family.

    Tara2019-09-15T00:00:00Z
  • This house was the perfect option for us! We were celebrating a friend’s 40th birthday and nothing was short of amazing! Super clean, welcoming home. The beds were comfortable and you got the best of both worlds with historic charm, but amenities of today. Walking distance to everything you need, which was a plus for us! Thank you for allowing us to stay in your home and experience French Lick!

    This is NOT your average place. :-) Somewhere between a resort and camping, Lost River Hostel is a nonprofit arts and cultural center located on a 16+ acre hillside in West Baden Springs. With the farmhouse on a hillside and the guesthouse in the forest, the hostel is a hub of conversation and inspiration. We offer a free dinner just after our nightly gratitude circle and also ask that our guests help with a simple chore in the morning to help contribute to the well being of Lost River.
    There are wonderful places in this world that inspire us such as mountains, cathedrals, forests, fields, caves, and the sea. People inspire us too. Those who teach, who lead by example, who create, who perform, who follow their passions, and who radiate kindness. Those people that give you the sense of “if they can do it, so can I!” The Lost River Hostel blends both of these things; striving to build and maintain an extraordinary space fueled by a constant cycle of generosity and creativity. We hope everyone who stays here will go back into the world refreshed and rejuvenated – wanting to be better people and do great things. While there is no central religious belief system of those who live/work at the hostel, we do believe in making the world a better place and constantly learning new things as we go by providing a distraction-free, reflective space. In greater efforts to do this, we will also be hosting workshops and events related to music, writing, yoga, organic gardening, cooking, and environmental sustainability.
    The joined towns of West Baden and French Lick are a beautiful little tourist spot located 3 minutes from the hostel. There you will find: West Baden Springs Hotel and Gardens / The cute downtown of French Lick / Paoli Peaks Skiing / Hoosier National Forest / The Shirley Creek Trail / French Lick Winery & Restaurant / Wilstem Ranch/Zip Lines / Indoor Karting / Big Splash Indoor Water Park / French Lick Casino
  • Very nice people that own this can't wait to stay there myself. I booked the room for my elderly mom and aunt sort of by mistake (I did not read the accommodations well lol) they survived the night but have no plans to ever try a hostel again. With that said they were pleased with how nice Scott was to them. They knew they did not fit in haha but said it was clean and a neat place for the younger more adventurous people if the world. They were treated very well and said it was very clean. Thanks for taking extra great care of them and for the flashlight you brought to them to cross the grounds more safely at night. It was definitely an adventure for them 😆

    Julie2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Lost River Hostel is a really great place. We spent a relaxing day by the clay lagoon, and enjoyed a delicious meal with the entire hostel that evening. Afterwards, we sat by the fire and enjoyed some really nice folk music. We will be back!

    William2019-09-01T00:00:00Z

    Alvin2019-08-01T00:00:00Z
  • As a former host I am typically in the habit of leaving short reviews But for the lost river hostel it deserves a longer praise! It was seriously one of the coolest places I have ever stayed. Scott was super friendly and helpful. He fixed a delicious dinner. I enjoyed a rooftop bath under the stars And a bike ride through the beautiful countryside. We will definitely be coming back and I would recommend this place to anyone

    Matthew2019-07-26T00:00:00Z

You won't find a prettier spot, located on the edge of a National Forest and just down the road from two historic resort hotels in the quaint towns of West Baden - French Lick. If you read the description of the property, it's very accurate. This is a communal style hostel experience on the edge of beautiful woods and river, with a spring fed swimming hole, free-range chickens happily roaming the yard, and a beautiful old farm home full of exceptionally cool people, a warm meal, and lots of music if you're lucky enough be there at the right time! The rooms are uniquely designed, charming, comfortable, and very clean. And you can't beat the price for a room and a meal. Thoroughly enjoyed our stay at LRH and will be coming back!

  • I love this place so much that we are making plans to return. This was our mini honeymoon after tying the knot on valentines day and it was more than we expected. I highly recommend it.

    Ivette2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • This place was amazingly clean! Very close to the casino was very happy with the experience!!

    Mikayle2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Very cute bungalow, sweet touches everywhere, would definitely stay here again!!!

    Linda2019-12-15T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful space. Modern and very well decorated. Had everything we needed.

    Kara2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great bungalow. Very clean and comfortable with many kitchen appliances, dishes, glasses, knifes and cookware. Christy was very quick to get back to us when we had questions. We rented this place to get together with our sons and grandchildren for an early Thanksgiving dinner. There was 13 of us and there was plenty of room. Everyone loved the place. Highly recommend.

    Terry2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Christy's place was GREAT! We loved the location (close to French Lick Hotel) and a short walk from the shops and restaurants in town. We will tell all our friends who visit the area to try and stay here!

    David2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Adorable bungalow, the pictures do not do the place justice. Can walk everywhere, as a FYI, it is an uphill walk back to the place. Would stay here again, the place was so cute we almost didn’t go sightseeing

    This is NOT your average place. :-) Somewhere between a resort and camping, Lost River Hostel is a nonprofit arts and cultural center located on a 16+ acre hillside in West Baden Springs. With the farmhouse on a hillside and the guesthouse in the forest, the hostel is a hub of conversation and inspiration. We offer a free dinner just after our nightly gratitude circle and also ask that our guests help with a simple chore in the morning to help contribute to the well being of Lost River.
    There are wonderful places in this world that inspire us such as mountains, cathedrals, forests, fields, caves, and the sea. People inspire us too. Those who teach, who lead by example, who create, who perform, who follow their passions, and who radiate kindness. Those people that give you the sense of “if they can do it, so can I!” The Lost River Hostel blends both of these things; striving to build and maintain an extraordinary space fueled by a constant cycle of generosity and creativity. We hope everyone who stays here will go back into the world refreshed and rejuvenated – wanting to be better people and do great things. While there is no central religious belief system of those who live/work at the hostel, we do believe in making the world a better place and constantly learning new things as we go by providing a distraction-free, reflective space. In greater efforts to do this, we will also be hosting workshops and events related to music, writing, yoga, organic gardening, cooking, and environmental sustainability.
    The joined towns of West Baden and French Lick are a beautiful little tourist spot located 3 minutes from the hostel. There you will find: West Baden Springs Hotel and Gardens / The cute downtown of French Lick / Paoli Peaks Skiing / Hoosier National Forest / The Shirley Creek Trail / French Lick Winery & Restaurant / Wilstem Ranch/Zip Lines / Indoor Karting / Big Splash Indoor Water Park / French Lick Casino
  • This space really is sacred. It's a beautiful place to stay, yet can be so much more if you want it to be. Great and genuine staff, a shared meal, rooms are so simple, yet perfect. The outdoor shower house was amazing. To shower while looking out over forest can't be described, but one of the best showers I've ever taken. I'll be back!

    Kim2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • Another great visit to LRH! Super peaceful setting, and unique artistic amenities. Love the outdoor shower. Thanks to Alex and the staff for making us feel so welcome!

    Paul2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • This is something that everyone must do from time to time. Refreshing, enlightening, different, fun! Some of the words I'd use to describe our stay. It got us in touch with the nature. Literally. Do not expect any 5 star hotel amenities as this is not one. The place is exactly like the description mentions. You'll love the staff even more! A group of wonderful people who'll quickly become your friends.

    Aniruddh2019-07-07T00:00:00Z
  • Ended up not being able to make the trip, but Scott was very helpful in making sure we would have a great stay and keeping us accommodated in preparation for our stay. Hope to be able to make a trip here soon!

  • This is my second trip to Lost River Hostel, and it was just as serene and transformative as before. The Birds nest suite is a definite upgrade from the other rooms and certainly worth the extra cost. The bed is an exquisitely comfortable memory foam, and the bed "frame" made out of branches and twigs is a once-in-a-lifetime sleeping experience. The room was nice and toasty even during the cold weather, and I would certainly stay again. Lost River Hostel is a very special place, and I would suggest for anyone considering a stay to try it out!

    Alex2020-01-17T00:00:00Z
  • The Lost River Hostel is definitely a one-of-a-kind experience. Yes, this place is as cool as it looks - cooler even! As long as you read all of their descriptions and understand that this isn't your typical airBnB, you will be highly pleased with your experience. The property is beautiful and the accommodations are very comfortable. Of special note is their shower/tub set-up, which is absolutely fantastic. You are right there in the woods, but with impressive water pressure and heat - I was seriously looking forward to every shower! If you are willing to sacrifice just little bit of convenience, you will be rewarded with a relaxing and rejuvenating stay at this super groovy hostel.

    Miles2019-09-02T00:00:00Z
  • this is not a hotel! This is like a camping experience only you have a room to stay in. The landscape can be a bit challenging so bring your flashlights and maybe a walking stick. This was a very cool experience and we will be back again. The drive from Indy was pretty awesome.

    Christy2019-08-26T00:00:00Z
  • This place is amazing and the staff is awesome! Best hidden gem I have found in French Lick! I absolutely loved everything about the feel vibe and location of this place! I will definitely be back 😘

    Helenna2019-08-16T00:00:00Z
  • Enjoyed our stay. Would come back

    Leah2019-07-05T00:00:00Z
  • Awesome place if you’re into the rustic life!

    Anna2019-05-04T00:00:00Z
  • A one of a kind experience. I went for a pagan holiday celebration and this place was perfect for it. Nature everywhere. Being one with nature. Hospitality was awesome and friendly . food was better than expected by far. So much to do . only thing that id mention because its not for everyone... The bedroom doors dont have locks on them and the suites' the windows dont open so we had to pick being hot or leaving our door wide open. We left the door open and no one bothered us but i know that would be a concern to some. A wonderul experience

    Valyna2019-05-02T00:00:00Z
  • Very fun , unique place to stay I did unfortunately have to cut my visit short I am pregnant and needed the out house a lot and it was a bit of a walk in the rain and it was making me worn out going there and back I didn’t realize some rooms were up and some were down I thought they were all kind of up high I should have taken a lower room. The showers were awesome everything was very beautiful and peaceful

    Stephanie2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • We came to ski and the slopes were closed but we still had a fabulous time. Close proximity to everything downtown. Loved hanging out on the covered front porch during the unseasonably warm days.

    Julie2019-12-31T00:00:00Z
  • Highly recommend!! We stayed here for the weekend and rode the Polar Express train. It was a great location and amazing place to stay...so comfortable and clean.

    Kristen2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Had a wedding to attend in French Lick. Options and the two resorts were limited and very expensive. Found Maple Dealings on Airbnb and selected it. Was perfect for out needs of 3 people. Front porch is great for evening chats and drinks. House was recently renovated and stylish. If I have a need to be in the area again, would certain book Maple Dealings.

    Ross2019-10-28T00:00:00Z
  • Great space within walking distance of downtown and the larger resort. Excellent hospitality with thoughtful staples in the kitchen and bath. Wonderful place to build memories in the welcoming atmosphere. Great for a low-key long weekend with friends/family.

    Brad2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • This place is beautiful, stylish and fun. The kitchen is extremely well stocked with dishes, pots, and utensils. We used the small storage containers twice for picnics, and it was really handy. I love having Netflix available. I can't think of anything else we wanted or needed. Christy was extremely responsive to every question. Great rental!
