Owners purchased this cabin as their retirement home. Still a few years away from retirement, we decided to rent it and share the peaceful surroundings with nice guests.

Deborah Porter purchased this cabin in 2007

17 acres of peacefulness, lots of birds and wildlife. Stress relief from hectic everyday life---our cabin allows you to relax and enjoy each other and nature. French Lick, West Baden, Patoka Lake, Paoli Peaks, Marengo Cave, Blue River,

are all within short driving distance from our cabin.

Large enough for families or groups up to 20--everyone has a bed!

Yet small enough for just 2 to 4 people and still seem nice and cozy. Just ask our honeymoon couples! Nature all around, firepit in the evenings--hot tub--peaceful slumber! Only 3 miles from the entrance to Patoka Lake Park.

We were thrilled with the cabin! The owner was fantastic, providing plenty of communication and details for our check in and stay. She also gave us a lot of nice personal recommendations for activites and restaurants.
We were two families, with 6 kids total, ages 3 through 8. The master bedroom was nice and private. The loft bedroom, which was open to the house but also had a lovely king bed and large bathroom and sitting area, was actually remarkably private. The kids LOVED the basement/bunk room and they all slept down there. I have never seen so much sleeping space!! The cabin was the most well stocked vacation house we have ever stayed in! There are PLENTY of extra linens, towels, kitchen supplies, etc. There was nothing that we needed. The grounds were gorgeous and very private. We enjoyed a nice walk through the woods behind the cabin. We look forward to using the fire pit sometime in the future when it's more than single digit temps outside! French Lick/West Baden are just about 20 minutes away. We enjoyed the Big Splash water park with the kids while we were there. We saw boat ramps into the lake just about 2-3 miles away.
Thanks for a great stay- we will be back!

Wonderful Wedding

Wise Old Owl cabin was just the best for the small family wedding of our daughter. The groom's family and ours enjoyed the stay, the hot tub, the views, the fireplace and everything about our visit to the cabin. The cabin fulfilled our daughter's dream wedding and we loved being there, fixing our food in the well equipped kitchen and just relaxing. Working with Debbie and Butch was just the best and we highly recommend this cabin!

Wise Old Owl - the Perfect Getaway!

What a BEAUTIFUL cabin! Well kept, clean, warm - a true home away from home! My family and I escaped the city for a Thanksgiving in the woods, and we could not have been happier with the accommodations!! The kitchen was stocked with EVERYTHING we could have ever needed to pull off a Thanksgiving Feast. We hiked in the woods, had a camp fire with s'mores, the kids got in the Hot tub, and played games and watched movies when it was too cold to be outside. The property is VERY peaceful, and cabin is very cozy and warm. We also enjoyed traveling into French Lick/West Baden and seeing the resorts, winery, go karts, train museum and scenery. Wish we had time to experience the water park and lake patoka. Debbie and Butch were incredibly helpful and nice when setting everything up for our trip. They were an absolute to pleasure to work with, and have thought of EVERYTHING to make you feel at home while staying in their amazing cabin. We would not hesitate to return to such a memorable place....just maybe when the weather is a little warmer!

What a relaxing Weekend!!!

My girlfriend and I drove down from Indianapolis for a long weekend in November. The drive was beautiful and what a joy to arrive at the Wise Old Owl Cabin! The place is immaculate, looks brand new, and is FULLY furnished. The hot tub was cozy, the fire place and fire pit kept us warm, and there was plenty to do, including relax and escape from the world! Plenty of board games, movies, hiking, etc. And its a very quick drive to French Lick and West Baden. We are already planning our next visit! Debbie was such a joy to work with. She was very thoughtful with ideas for things to do. We forgot a camera at the cabin and she went and sent it back to us via fed-ex. Amazing service. Can't wait to visit again soon.

Excellent place for our women's ministry retreat. Quiet. Clean. Cozy. Fully stocked. We had everything we needed and more. Comfortable beds. Plenty of table space and extra seating. We will definitely be back in the future. Loved the fire pit. They even had the wood. I would recommend this cabin to anyone wanting to get away. Loved it.
