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.

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.

PEACEFUL HOME ON 100 ACRES WITH HIKING/HOTTUB/WINERIES NEARBY

  • 4 of 5
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. In addition to the three queen beds there are two queen size futons and a single futon available if doubling up is uncomfortable.

WONDERFUL SETTING FOR FAMILY RETREAT!

  • 5 of 5
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!

Owner's Response: Gina,
