LOG CABIN VACATION HOME ON 62 PRIVATE WOODED ACRES

Metamora Cabin Rental Photos and Description

Cabin, 3 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 13-14)

The Grand Arbor invites you to renew your connection with the healing power of the earth. Escape into the heart of 62 secluded acres of wooded forest. This three bedroom, two and a half bath family vacation log cabin home is the perfect place to rest and enjoy the simple pleasures in life. Check the online calendar by going to the website listed below - just click on 'reservations.'

The 2900 square foot cabin was constructed in 2004 and is located in south-eastern Indiana, less than one hour west of Cincinnati or one hour east of Indianapolis in the Metamora/Brookville area. Conveniently located only 10 minutes from Brookville State Park and 5 minutes from the quaint historical town of Metamora, this secluded getaway welcomes you and your guests. Some of our recent visitors tell us that that the Grand Arbor feels like mountain chalet due to it’s spacious interior.

With large glass windows overlooking a mature woods and creek, the Grand Arbor is nestled in a valley with a southern exposure. Surrounding hiking trails and a multitude of fun outdoor activities are bountiful. Due to its picturesque and convenient location, the Grand Arbor truly is an ideal place for vacations, family reunions, wedding receptions and retreats. There is a game room in the rec room at the ground level which now features a full size regulation pool table. This is sure to be a hit with kids and adults alike.

The outdoor Caldera jacuzzi is popular with guests. This is a great way to relax in the warmth of soothing waters outside and enjoy the natural scenery that surrounds the home.

I enjoy hiking and the outdoors. Prior to owning a log cabin home, I always enjoyed renting log cabins myself. It's a great way to escape the day to day routine of the city/suburban life.

Karen Ramos purchased this cabin in 2004

This place is a fantastic getaway location as it is secluded. You won't find other homes or vehicles anywhere near the place. You have complete privacy to enjoy the outdoors with the comforts of home nearby.

I have stayed at the Grand Arbor more than once, and have enjoyed it every time I've been there! It is not too far from Cincinnati, so it's not a bad drive, and it's in close proximity to horseback riding and the quaint town of Metamora (love the boat ride and cute shops!). The cabin itself is gorgeous, and it really forces you to relax with all of it's natural wood, stone fireplace and large windows. It has something to offer in every season. I definitely give The Grand Arbor two thumbs up!!

peaceful retreat

  • 5 of 5
I absolutely love this cabin. It's a mere hour drive from Cincinnati along some winding, scenic roads. The property is an impressive 65 acres. It's shielded from everyone around, making it quiet an secluded. At night, if you turn off the lights, it gets dark enough that the stars shine brightly from the massive wrap around deck.

There is a meandering, babbling stream that runs through the property and makes for an adventurous afternoon to follow along as it goes. It makes for quite a romantic picnic as well. There are many other walks or hikes you can do on the property depending on your time frame and whether you want a workout or just a conversational stroll to catch up with friends.

There is a good sized fire pit with benches that convert into tables if you like. It's close to the cabin and right alongside the stream. There is also a grass coveted volleyball court, a swingset within eyesight and calling g distance, and of course, a very nice hot tub. The wraparound porch has a screened in dining area that can seat ten people or more. There is a gas grill as well.

All of this and you are merely five minutes away from scenic, historic Metamora, complete with shopping, restaurants, horse-drawn carriages, and canal boat rides. Or five minutes in the other direction, you have Brookville and Brookville Lake with hiking, mountainbiking, boating, beaches and much more. Morgan's, just down the road, rents canoes and kayaks. There are convenience stores, grocery, pizza delivery, fast food and much more.

The cabin itself is expansive. There are private rooms, lots of beds, nice bathrooms, a great room with a fall of windows looking out at the woods. The kitchen is excellent with a gas range, well stocked with any cooking utensil you could need, a dishwasher and breakfast bar. There is a large dining room table, and comfy chairs/sofa so that you can take advantage of the supplied books and games. There is a lot of nice mood lighting, and if you are in the mood, two high def flat screen TVs with DVD players and supplied movies. Oh and I can't forget the game room with pool table.

Whatever your mood or taste, you can find it here. Truly a magical trip every time.

Grand Arbor Cabin Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
What a great experience! The Grand Arbor is clean, spacious and modern, with all the amenities. It is a beautiful building, inside and out. The view from the front living room's large windows is gorgeous. The hiking trails go for a long way along a creek and are lovely. The location is nice for a weekend getway: boating at Brookville or visiting Metamora. Don't forget to use he outdoor hot tub - it's fantastic. I highly recommend this private, extremely quiet vacation getaway.

Relaxing get-away

  • 5 of 5
Stayed with a group of friends for a long weekend - perfect get-away, and only an hour drive from home. Love the large great room & beautiful stone fireplace. The kids loved sled riding in the snow, and later the adults enjoyed a glass of wine and stargazing from the hot tub. Hope to come back in warm weather to take advantage of the deck and screened in porch, and am considering the Grand Arbor for our family reunion this summer.

Communication Issues

  • 3 of 5
We enjoyed the house a few years ago and thought we had it booked this year, but never got a response back from our email. Very disappointing.

Owner's Response: The Grand Arbor has apologized for the confusion. An inquiry came in from this party and they received a response via email shortly thereafter. However, the party failed to follow up and pay the required $100 deposit to hold their requested dates. In the meantime, another group called to pay and reserve the same weekend. The deposit is what initiates the rental contract. They were under the impression that they had reserved dates without any deposit or rental contract. It was unfortunate that they only communicated once via email without any follow up, such as a phone call, to our initial response. This property is in demand so it runs on the policy that the first person to pay the deposit gets the rental contract and secures the dates. This system has been in place over six years. This was the first time that confusion on behalf of a former customer has occurred.
