Morels on the Wabash is a perfect opportunity to experience the wonders of nature without giving up the comforts of home. If you need to relax, unwind and recharge this is the place for you.

Our cabins provide the perfect location to enjoy the beauty of spring, summer and fall. The beautiful, romantic cabins overlook the historic Wabash River.

We feature fishing, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, and biking. Your stay includes the use of the Archery range with 3-D targets and elevated deer stands, an eagle watch tower to view the nesting bald eagles, a golf driving cage, irons and balls provided, corn hole, horseshoes and a volleyball court. There is a bluegill pond for the kids to fish in (catch and release only) or they can feed the fish. There are play sets and swings for the kids to enjoy and plenty of room for them to run around and play. The kids will enjoy a treasure hunt for the buried treasure left by Chief Logan on the island on the property. Clay pigeon shooting is available upon advanced notice and is strictly supervised per an additional charge. The property also has a walk-in cooler and fish cleaning station. Pet Friendly with prior approval.

Every cabin has their own private hot tub and fire pit with all the wood you need to build an awesome fire to relax by and toast some marshmallows or enjoy a nice glass of wine. While you are preparing dinner go out to you own little garden to pick some fresh herbs or veggies that have been grown especially for you.

Enjoy a nice stroll around the property and look at all the beautiful flowers grown in the greenhouse on site, sit in the gazebo and watch the river drift by, walk on the beach and wet you toes in the Majestic Wabash River that runs by the cabins, or share the Cabana bed or one of the many hammocks placed around the grounds.

Our cabins are each very unique and decorated in rustic chic that provides that homey atmosphere away from home. This site is perfect for that romantic getaway or a wonderful family vacation that has something for everyone.

All our hand built cabins feature full kitchens, full bathrooms, queen size beds, TV/DVD with limited cable, fire pit, a deck, hot tub and outdoor grill.

Portabella Cabin: On entering the Portabella Cabin, you look around and realize this is a large cabin and features a living room with a fire place, dining area, full kitchen, full bathroom with tub/shower combination, a master bedroom with queen bed, bunk beds, futon and a loft bedroom with 2 beds. Hot tub, corn hole and picnic area outside. The deck allows you to relax and watch the beauty of the river.

Shitake Cabin: This is our most romantic cabin, featuring an enclosed hot tub, huge 2 level deck that leads directly to the rivers edge, a bedroom with queen sized bed and a view of the Wabash River from every window, a full kitchen, bathroom with shower, living room with queen size hide-a-bed couch. At the river edge is a romantic area with a fire pit.

Primitive camping is also available with fresh water nearby. Proprietor Ed Dawson is an Eagle Scout and the property is Scout friendly for camping events and activities.

Morels on the Wabash is ideal for the sports-minded, family reunions, or those who just want a peaceful spot to get away from it all and recharge your batteries.

About Edward Dawson

Friendly, personal, easy to approach and very accommodating.

Edward Dawson purchased this cabin in 1989

Why Edward Dawson chose Indiana

During recent exploring and excavation of the property and especially the island we have discovered the "Lost treasure "of the famous Indian: Chief Logan . Upon this great discovery Mr Dawson has decided to keep the "treasure" to share with his customers . Any one who books a cabin for a anniversary, birthday any special occasion will find a treasure map in their cabin. With this map discover the lost treasure of Chief Logan . Exploring couples will be able to hike the grounds and find your special treasure suited for your special day !!!!Remember X marks the 'SPOT" The Indians called the Lime Stone of the famous State River ,WAWA SEE , meaning 'White Rock " This rock marks the spot . This is the only hint that Mr Dawson would allow . Come see and explore ...... This quest is not for the faint of heart ... Stillettos not recommended !!!!! For river frontage you will not see a more beautiful Location . Landscaped to waters edge ,clean with a wide variety of wildlife .

What makes this cabin unique

Fishing ,Canoeing , Kayaking , Zip lining in France Park only a 2 minutes away

Feel like part of the family

  • 5 of 5

I read many of the reviews before staying here. Some likened this to staying at a nice resort...I would say that is not the case and NOT in a bad way. In fact, it is more personal and better than many resorts. It is more like staying with family. The cabin and property are quiet and relaxing, but with plenty of activities for the whole family. But the best part of the trip is the host. Ed truly cares about providing you with an outstanding experience and goes out of his way to ensure you have all the comforts of home. He is generous, friendly, and you can tell he loves being a host. From the fresh baked pie to the freshly picked vegetables to the roaring fire waiting in the fire pit, everything feels so thoughtful. He took the kids to feed the fish in the bluegill pond every day, and my daughter was lucky enough to be included with Girl Scout activities that were going on this past weekend. We look forward to coming back when the treehouse gets put in! Thanks for everything!

Relaxing, Romantic and Beautiful

  • 5 of 5

From the moment your arrive to a roaring fire in your fire pit, the fresh fruits and vegetables left for you by Ed, your stress starts to melt away. Then you look around an realize you are at Heaven on Earth. From the amazing hot tub overlooking the river to the hand built cabins and breathtaking views of the river and nature all around you. Ed has taken it upon himself to make your stay as special as any 5 star resort. He includes bikes for a nice ride around the property or the nearby bikeway. You have your choice of hammocks all over the property including the beach area or a cabana that you can close off to the world. You can use one of the provided canoes to paddle around the island or down the river .

If you like to fish you can take your pick of places to cast your line. The decks on all the cabins give you an amazing view of the river and sunset while you sip on a cold beverage. Oh I almost forgot the treasure chest that has all the fixings for a nice night by the campfire making smores. The bed is so comfortable you will not want to get out of it and all of the furnishing make you feel like you are home. We didn't bring our children but if you do there are plenty of things for them to do. There is playsets, a pond for them to catch (and release) or feed bluegill all day long. Horseshoes, cornhole and a gas or charcoal grill with every thing provided for you to use them. Waking up to goodies left for you each morning or a pitcher of Organic Iced tea made with fresh honey from the property after a day of exploring is just one of the things Ed does to make sure you taken care of like family. You arrive strangers but leave with a new friend, Ed. I could go on and on with other wonderful things to say about our stay but all you really need to know is this is now our one and only choice for a getaway. You will not be disappointed. You will leave relaxed, refreshed and wanting to come back..

It was GORGEOUS!!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an amazing time. Booked the Shitake cabin for our 30th anniversary getaway and Ed was so amazing. Had champagne chilling, a fire outside, and home made goodies waiting for us when we arrived. The place was beautiful and well maintained. Can't wait to take the grandsons back for a family fun weekend!
