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.

Beautiful getaway. Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Ed was amazing. Baked us cakes and left goodies. The property is huge and well taken care of. Very private. While it was cold for our stay the cabin stayed quite warm. Ed had a fire for us when we arrived. I would like to come back in the summer so we could spend more time outside on the beautiful property. Everything I wanted and more.

We look forward each year to new places to go over Valentine’s Day weekend. I was super excited to find exactly what my husband had asked when I searched on VRBO! A hot tub inside & less than 2 hours away! I verified this with the owner & paid . Then received a message / phone & online that the hot tub was broken. Many apologies later, we were offered to come another time.. but no refund. We had both taken the days off work for this weekend. Long story short, we wanted to make the most of it & keep it that weekend. It was very cold, so we weren’t outside much. The WiFi didn’t work- and the owner was gone , leaving someone else in charge who couldn’t ever get ahold of him.

I’ve read the reviews and know we missed out . Apparently February isn’t the time to go to the Morels. ( also many , many stink bugs joined us)

Owner's Response: I am sorry you were disappointed with your stay .After returning home from the hospital I read your note . Per our phone conversation before your arrival we talked about the spa not being available . During the winter months the spa is subject to extreme temperature conditions on the Wabash River . One day it could be 20 below with a wind chill . The next day it could be 50 to 60 degrees . . I can asure you that maintainning the cabins is my utmost importance . Moreover , in response to the spa in cold weather I have had customers leave the cover off the spa which ended up the river due to wind . The wrong buttons were pushed and the temperature dropped to the point it froze . It was down for your stay . Then the jets were left on and the spa ran for hours ........ should I go on .Oh yea at times people sit on the cover and it cracked. I asume it is because it is cold from the spa to the cabin . Most of the time I am on" site to "defuse " any problems . It is not a good idea to have the spa running in these conditions . Once again I am sorry for your disappointment . If you are interested you may book through the week M- F through the summer at no charge .I will cater to your every need . You may contact me through home away to arrange for your free two day stay . I will be there to make your stay pleasant. after checking the internet .It was working . So I figure it was your inability to join the network .I understand some people will try to dicredit to get what they want . You never mentioned that you wanted a refund ! I thank you for your review and hope you may find some of the amenities nice . IT took time and effort to make these .I noticed you did not mention any other amenities. I am sorry it was cold . Next time I will try to control the weather so it is Sunny and warm in February .....AS FAR AS THE STINK BUGS .You must have brought them wth you !!!!!!!!! Thank you ,Edward Dawson ,owner

Wonderful cabin on the river!

  • 5 of 5

Our long NYE weekend at the Shiitake cabin was absolutely perfect. Ed was the most accommodating host and went out of his way to make us feel welcome. And when I say he went out of his way to make us feel welcome I really mean it. When we arrived at the cabin there was a freshly baked pie, a bottle of wine and champagne, some delicious homemade venison sausage, and NYE party hats!

On top of it all, he made sure that despite the freezing temperatures the hot tub was available for us to use. We took full advantage of it and soaked every morning and night while looking at the river.

All of the recommendations for dinner, drinks, and sightseeing were also on point. We even found a few new ones during our in town explorations.

Everything about the property and our host was above and beyond what I could have imagined. We will absolutely be back so we can try out all of the warmer weather activities the property has to offer. Mega thanks to Ed for being a wonderful host and having us for the holiday!

Ed was so great! What a welcoming, generous host! He truly makes the experience what it is - with a warm welcome and homemade goodies! The weather was perfect when we stayed and we spent hours out by the fire pit enjoying the beautiful river. That was definitely the highlight!

Cute, quaint and exactly what we needed!

  • 5 of 5

Ed is a fantastic host and his property is absolutely gorgeous! My wife and I spent a much needed post-wedding mini-moon with our pooch at the Morels on Wabash. We arrived in the evening on the first night, after dealing with extensive car troubles, to a chilling bottle of champagne and blueberry pie. The hot tub is wonderful, the cabin (Shitake) was just the right size, and the property is filled with things to explore and do. Mostly, we just enjoyed the downtime by the fire and in the hammock but there is so much to do if that is what you are looking for. All and all, it was a wonderful experience and we will definitely be back!
