About Robert Woodling

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

Why Robert Woodling chose Bloomington

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We all had a wonderful weekend away from Indianapolis. It was great to spend time together outdoors enjoying the autumn weather. Some highlights we enjoyed most were the fire pit, easy access hiking and the hot tub. Thanks so much for providing amazing accommodations! :)

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5
This was a weekend for a first reunion of 6 of the first cousins-girls only. We found the house to be a great place for us to all sit together and talk, and laugh hysterically! We all found the sleeping arrangements to be very accommodating for us; we shopped ahead of time and it was nice to make dinner and stay in and enjoy each other's company. Great proximity to running into Bloomington for lunch on Saturday and then off to both nearby wineries - Oliver and Butler. It was too chilly for us to go for a walk in the woods, but we all loved the beautiful scenery! We are already talking about another reunion here!
Thank you!

Great option for a family visiting the Bloomington area

  • 4 of 5
We had 5 people (2 families) looking for accommodations in the Bloomington area during Parents Weekend. Hotels in town are very pricey at that time, and we would have needed several hotel rooms. Elm House was the perfect solution for us! It easily sleeps 5 - in fact one family stayed in the upstairs (one queen bed and one futon, with a bathroom) and the other stayed downstairs (2 bedrooms plus the couches in the living room). Everyone was comfortable, and the price was much better than a hotel in town. It was so comfy that our two IU students stayed one night with us, rather than going back to their own apartments!

Elm House is about a 15 minute drive from NW Bloomington in a lovely wooded setting. It had everything we needed, including a hot tub and a large TV which was great for movies.

We all agreed that we would love to return next year. We recommend this property.

Owner's Response: Thank-you for the nice review. Elm House is used often by people in town for a university event. The quiet solitude after the hectic frenzy that is a college campus is appreciated by many. We look forward to your return.

Reunion 2014

  • 4 of 5
Loved the house and the cleanliness of everything. I have stayed at many vacation houses and have never had one so well supplied. You thought of everything, extra towels, terry robes, even spices in the cabinet. I would recommend your place to others. We have a reunion every year, so we may see you next year!!

Owner's Response: Thank-you for the kind words. We strive to provide a comfortable and relaxing property. Close enough to Bloomington for convenience yet far enough away for peace and quiet. Looking forward to your return visit.

Graduation Stay

  • 5 of 5
This was a comfortable place to stay for IU graduation. Although it is a bit of a distance from the IU campus, it was worth it to stay in such a quiet setting after all the busyness and lots of cars during the graduation festivities. The house was very clean and had all the supplies and amenities you could ask for. We wished we could have walked the trails but the rain kept us from doing that. House is very large and accommodated four adults, one child (age 4) and a newborn. We enjoyed it thoroughly and even though I am a city girl, I was surprised I enjoyed being out in the forest. Beautiful home and well kept up. Thanks again for letting us reserve the house so far in advance of graduation.

Owner's Response: Thank-you for your kind words. It is unfortunate the weather was not better for you. The large decks are ideal for celebrations but high wind and rain will definitely bring it all inside. Booking well in advance is a necessity for graduation weekend and I am glad we could accommodate you.
