French Lick Resort & Casino

Had a client meeting this week in French Lick. What a gem we found just a few hours from home. We had all heard about the renovations to the French Lick and West Baden Hotels but none of us had ever been there. So a couple of us piled in the car and off we went. We met up with several corporate employees, had our meeting, then went off to lunch at one of their golf courses. Oh my goodness. The countryside down there is beautiful! It was a great lunch (chopped salad with grilled chicken, it had fresh Indiana sweet corn in it...yummo).

Then after lunch they wanted to show us their new Pete Dye golf course going in on one of the highest points in that area. The course isn't done yet so watching all the guys working on it sure reminded me of Beepo! Anyway, we toured the home of the man that originally built the West Baden hotel - which they are now making into a bed and breakfast inn. Seriously you guys, you don't feel like you're in Indiana when you're there. The views were spectacular! We were all in awe!

Then off to the West Baden hotel we went. This place is something to see! I'm definitely taking Rich down there to spend the night and roam around. It's gorgeous!!! Right now their website doesn't do the hotels justice - that will be changing! I didn't take my camera, since it was a business trip - but I wish that I had taken it and now I know it would have been ok too. SHOOT!

If you're looking for a quick weekend getaway and you don't want to venture too far from home...check out French Lick & West Baden. Believe me when I tell you, you will be impressed!
