Avid lover of the hardwood ecological environment. 2007 Indiana Outstanding Tree Farm of the Year. 2009 North Central Regional Outstanding Tree Farm of the Year. Retired from Indiana University in 2010. I play in the woods, that's what I do.

Robert Woodling purchased this house in 2009

We purchased this property as the last parcel of the original farm dating back to the 1860s. It is now part of our 103 acre managed forest. Enjoy your stay with access to the forested trails, wildlife ponds, birdwatching observation towers and still be within easy driving distance of all Brown and Monroe counties have to offer.

Enjoy all that nature and the surrounding communities have to offer during the day and a relaxing hot tub in the evening followed up by a movie on the large screen TV, listen to your favorite music, or just visit with family and friends.

Peaceful home on 100 acres with hiking/hottub/wineries nearby

We had our annual girls' weekend here (5 of us) and really enjoyed it. Robert is very accommodating. When we got lost trying to find a winery, he gave us directions on the telephone. The property has three short maintained hiking trails, a hot tub and a beautiful winery within five minutes drive! The only negative is that the listing says the three bedrooms have queen size beds, but they are actually a full size. That made it a bit uncomfortable for two women to share two of the beds. Other than that...it is very peaceful!

Owner's Response: Thank-you for your kind words. The beds are in fact queen size beds. My wife and I have slept comfortably in each one. Of course, given that you and most of your group are over 6 foot tall you might prefer a king.

Wonderful setting for family retreat!

Just returned from a wonderful weekend at Elm House! My sisters and our children try to rent a house in a different area a few times a year, and I am very happy with our most current choice. This trip we had 3 adults and 5 children (ages 0 to 8) and there was plenty of room for all of us. Lots of space to run around and play in the fenced backyard, trails to hike, and nature to see (we saw 3 deer by the fence as soon as we arrived). The owner was super nice and helpful; he also lives nearby in case of problems (which we didn't have). The house was clean and well-stocked, and the upstairs (one large bedroom with bath, walk-in closet, futon sofa, balcony, and many, many windows) sported a gorgeous view! And the setting - the forest - was breathtaking in its fall colors. Also, this may sound weird, but traveling with young children has made me appreciate the owners' providing a nice selection of non-breakable dishes! Definitely plan to come back, maybe this time with one more sister and her children since we didn't even need the third bedroom this time!

Nice house

We had a great time at this rental. We are 6 senior or almost senior citizens from Northern Michigan who were riding motorcycles. The curvey, hilly roads were just to our liking. We did a lot of riding. Saw many beautiful things. Went one day to explore the covered bridges and one day to the Ohio River Area. Enjoyed the many old towns and buildings. The house was very nice, but could have used some floor lams or table lamps for those of us who wanted to curl up with a good book after a long hot day of riding. Beds were very comfortable and there were plenty of towels. Thanks for the nice stay.

Owner's Response: It was a pleasure having this group stay at Elm House. The suggestion about floor lamps is a good one and we are looking for the appropriate lamps to add to the house. Thanks for the suggestion!
