About Deborah Porter

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

Why Deborah Porter chose French Lick

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.

What makes this cabin unique

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.

Beautiful conntry setting.

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful house and property situated in a rural setting, close to boat ramps. The house is well appointed with a loft bedroom/private bath with a king bed and a ground floor bedroom with a king bed/private bath. Basement is kind of a dorm setting with several double beds. The kitchen is definately better stocked than what yoiu usually get with rental property with lots of useable kitchen utensils and appliances. Nice place fixed outside for outdoor fires with seating. We were really pleased with everything! I arrivved early and shortly a young lady showed up to let me in and showed me how everything worked this is very helpful. We highly recommend this rental and would definately stay again.

We traveled to Louisville with our Sr. FFA Officer's for National Convention. There were 10 high school teenagers and 2 adult chaperones. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Perfect accommodations and enjoyed being able to cook for them. They had a fire with S'motes almost every night. Would highly recommend to anyone!!!! Thank you agina for allowing us to stay in your home.....-DeSoto Sr. FFA Officers and chaperones- Arcadia, FL

Secluded Simple Elegance--many local attractions

  • 5 of 5
Our group consisted of half a dozen young men. With three Bathrooms and and all 20 places to sleep, we did not feel crowed at all; however it would still feel cozy to a couple. The Cabin is set back a fair distance from a rural gravel road and is surrounded by acres of woods with no neighbors near--very private. The area is jam-packed with attractions and we were not able to take advantage of them all. We toured Marengo Cave and also went to the Beach at Patoka State Park. The Owner was a pleasure to work with and would recommend this cabin.

Clean, well equipped and welcoming.

  • 5 of 5
A very nice cabin in beautiful surroundings. Easy access to French Lick and all its activities, shops and eateries. Lots of tourist information at the cabin, very helpful as there is no internet. I found it very nice not to have it and do other things! The hot tub was great, our children loved the fire pit, the owners provided forks for the fire and we did s'mores & hot dogs! I loved the facilities, it was nice to do the laundry as we went along, so when we got home all we had was clean clothes to put away. I would love to stay in this cabin again, my 7year old has decided we should go back for skiing this winter! I would also consider taking another family too as it was definitely large enough for 2 families with kids 12 and under!

Highly recommend this place!

  • 5 of 5
The cabin was beautiful and was a great getaway for my husband and I and our family, There was plenty of space for all of us. We loved the firepit and told great ghost stories one night. We enjoyed the front and back porches. We loved our time together and hope to come back again soon! PS We loved your recommendation of the game catch phrase. We played it all weekend long!

Beautiful, clean, and perfect for a family getaway

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the cabin in July to celebrate my daughter's 1st birthday. There was 5 of us and we had plenty of room! It was the perfect place to get away from it all! The beds were very comfortable and the cabin was spotless! Our favorite part was the screened in back porch with the hot tub! It is only 3 miles from the lake and we went to the beach, which my daughter absolutely loved! I would definitely recommend this cabin and we hope to come back next year!
