Indiana Cabin Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 3 full Bathrooms, game room, Sleeps 9

Our quiet and secluded Sunrise Cove Cabin at Patoka Lake is ready for you.

Grab a cup of coffee and relax on the 36' long covered back porch and watch the morning sun sparkle on the lake. Catch up on your reading in the comfy chair in the book nook, or catch up with your favorite team in high definition on the 4 flat screen TVs (3 with Dish Network). Downstairs there's a pool table, foosball, air hockey and Ping Pong. If you must check your Facebook, (very slow) wireless DSL internet is available.

Step out the back door and enjoy the nearly 26,000 acre Patoka Lake recreation area. Build a campfire, take a hike, or grab your pole and walk down to lake. When you get back, soak in the hot tub or step into the double walk-in shower in the master bath.

Besides the nearby lake activities, the casino at the French Lick Springs Resort is a short 15 minutes away. And the not-to-be-missed West Baden Springs Resort is just a mile further. A movie theatre with stadium seating, a giant in-door water park, an awesome in-door go-kart track, several restaurants, a grocery and pharmacy also are located in the French Lick/West Baden area.

Get away from it all or get away to it all at Sunrise Cove Cabin.

About Rich

Sunrise Cove owners Rich and Dawn have worked to build a retreat that you won't want to leave (they hate to leave too). They've included features they've enjoyed in vacation rentals or resorts in which they've stayed. The double shower was inspired by a cabin at Lake Monroe. The gaming area is similar to one in a chalet in Gatlinburg. And watching the sun rise on the back porch reminds them of their stays in National Park Lodges in the Western U.S. Rich works for an engineering company, Dawn is a middle-school math teacher. They and their two kids get away to Sunrise Cove every chance they can.

Rich purchased this cabin in 2009

Why Rich chose Indiana

We searched for a year for the right location to build Sunrise Cove. We wanted a view of Patoka Lake, which we enjoy early fall through late spring, and we wanted the property to be adjacent to the government land that surrounds the water itself -- essentially giving us a 26,000 acre backyard. We also wanted quick access to the many amenities in French Lick, while also being very easy to get to from Interstate 64. And most importantly, with two kids and a busy state highway running past our back yard at home, we wanted somewhere QUIET. We found it. :)

What makes this cabin unique

Seclusion, quiet and peaceful.

Secluded, beautiful cabin

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay at this cabin. Close to French Lick but didn’t have to venture out, this cabin had everything in it you need. I would recommend bringing lawn chairs but the owner made that recommendation well before our arrival. Will recommend this cabin to friends and be back personally.

We had a wonderful week in this charming cabin in the woods. We cooked most of our meals in the fully equipped (and very clean) kitchen. The beds were comfortable, the hot tub was marvelous after a long day of hiking, and the games downstairs were so much fun. But our favorite activity was enjoying the wonderful views. In fact, we turned the sofa around for the week to watch out the large glass door and windows as the various birds feasted at the birdfeeder.

Don't miss a trip to French Lick and West Baden to tour the two amazing hotels. Absolutely beautiful as well as interesting to hear the history.

Thank you Rich and Dawn for sharing your wonderful property. We hope to return soon and bring friends and family with us to enjoy the serenity.

Great Getaway

  • 5 of 5

This was our 4th visit to Sunrise Cove and once again, it didn't disappoint! Lovely views of the lake, the feeling of being remote and away from it all yet close to many activities. Well appointed and clean. It has become a return destination for our family.

Perfect winter getaway with the family!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit and we enjoyed it as much, if not more, than our first! We are a military family with grown children who live in different parts of the country. Our older daughter and her family live in Indiana so Sunrise Cove has been an ideal location for all of us to meet up.

Sunrise Cove provides ample space for everyone to have their own privacy if they choose but it's also spacious enough that we still feel cozy. We love the fact that the cabin itself has so much to offer that we really don't have to leave. The kids enjoyed playing with the puzzles and games, the adults loved the hot tub and pool table, and I appreciated the fact that the kitchen was stocked with all of the luxuries from home. We brought all of our meals and used the grill to cook our steaks, brought some wine and was thrilled to find a bottle opener which we had forgotten at home, and enjoyed fresh baked cookies straight from the oven. It was perfect!!!

Because the cabin is set in a holiday theme, we decided to celebrate Christmas there, even though it was a month later. The grandkids loved it, after all, who doesn't love celebrating Christmas all over again?! It really was a perfect setting with the fireplace on, the holiday decor, and freshly baked cookies permeating the air!

On this trip, we were able to take in a few local sites like snow tubing at Paoli Peaks. What was great is the cabin is so centrally located that it only took about 20 minutes to get to Paoli and about 15 minutes to get to French Lick.

Sunrise Cove was a PERFECT way to celebrate the long weekend (MLK weekend) with family! It provided the perfect setting, had all of the luxuries from home, and gave everyone something fun to do either by themselves or with the group. We would strongly recommend this location for families and to make things even better, the owners, Rich and Dawn, were wonderful to deal with! On our first trip, I had accidentally left my Sam's card and Rich had sent me an email asking for my address so he could mail it to me and on this trip, we had accidentally broken a wine glass and they were very understanding. This is our perfect winter getaway!!!

We'll Be Back

  • 4 of 5

Pictures do not do this property justice. Owner is under-promising in their description of the accommodations. We had a comfortable stay escaping the grasp of our usual, confined space in the area. Top notch all around. Bring the family!
