French Lick Resort

Write Your Own Chapter to this 100+-year-old Story

Driving through the hills of southern Indiana, you might not expect to come upon the grandest of grand hotels. But you do. Two of them, in fact! The French Lick Resort—named the Best Historic Resort in America—draws you into the elegance of a bygone era. And even though the elegance borders on jaw-dropping, you will feel welcome to come as you are to enjoy golf, entertainment, spa treatments, fine dining, casino fun, horseback riding and more.

Travelers have been visiting the French Lick area for well over 100 years. Initially drawn for the healing magic of the restorative mineral springs, guests then stayed on for the atmosphere and service. Today, the Resort’s two luxury hotels, French Lick Springs Hotel  and West Baden Springs Hotel , have been fully restored to the luxury of yesteryear and more. Both transport guests to the glamour of the early 1900s with their restored original mosaic, marble floors and elaborately decorated ceilings. French Lick offers boutique shops, a variety of restaurants, bowling alley, fitness center, pools and luxury spa. West Baden, a National Historic Landmark, will “wow” you with its one-of-a-kind domed atrium spanning 200 feet! Once known as the "Eighth Wonder of the World," West Baden offers many of the same amenities as its sister hotel and even more luxurious accommodations.

The Resort also offers three golf courses—The Pete Dye, The Donald Ross and The Valley Links with golf learning center—plus, a casino with 51,000 square feet of Vegas-style gaming, riding stables and free shuttle service throughout the complex.
