Clifty Falls is an Indiana State Park located in Madison, IN. On the grounds of the park are numerous hiking trails, outdoor activities, the Inn, and the restaurant. For the purpose of this review, I will only be looking at the Inn. My husband and I stayed at the Inn twice in two separate areas.
The Inn is running a special for the entire month of March. You can book any room for $69 a night. Taking advantage of the special we opted to stay in the generally more expensive executive suite. The suite consists of three rooms, a fully equipped kitchen, a single bedroom with a king size bed and a jacuzzi. The main living area is spacious and large. And I found the bed to be extremely comfortable.
As much as I love Clifty Falls there were some negatives that should be mentioned. The carpet in the room was worn and in dire need of replacement. That isn’t too surprising considering the suite was in the older part of the building. However, a fresh coat of paint and new carpet would have made a world of difference. The jacuzzi worked perfectly. The shower was another matter. With six shower heads, it appeared as though there was not enough water pressure to maintain all six so only three or four worked at once. Though the suite wasn’t entirely unpleasant, I wouldn’t pay full price to stay in it without upgrades. For the $69 it wasn’t a terrible deal.
The Riverview rooms are newer and quite different. We stayed in a double queen Riverview room on our return trip and found them to be most pleasant. With stacks of pillows and a comfy bed, a good night’s rest was sure to be had. The view is amazing from any room but I am particularly fond of the rooms on the first floor as they offer a walk-out patio.
With an indoor pool that is handicap accessible, plenty of walking trails, several festivals taking place in Madison, and friendly attentive staff Clifty Falls is a great family get away. It remains one of our favorite escapes. For more information on Clifty Falls click here
