Located just off of I-64, at mile marker 92 in Leavenworth, IN, the Lake House is hidden from the highway but very easy to get to. It is 45 minutes west of Louisville, KY and 15 minutes west of Corydon, IN.
The Lake House is perfect for the outdoor recreation enthusiast and makes for a perfect home base to explore the beautiful natural spaces of:
- O'Bannon Woods State Park (10 minutes away)
- Holiday World is 30 miles away and most of that is Interstate travel.
- Hoosier National Forest. There are many sections of HNF all around our property. One of the most beautiful areas is 13 miles away, but there are lots of public lands all around The Lake House.
- Cave Country Canoes rents canoes on the Blue River which is an Indiana State Scenic River.
- Marengo Cave National Landmark is just 10 miles away.
- Paoli Peaks is 30 miles away
- Patoka Lake is 30 miles away
- Louisville is only 37 miles away
- French Lick and the Casino is 38 miles away

With central heat and A/C the Lake House is open year-round. Included with the cabin rental are a supply of towels and linens. Housekeeping service is not provided, but may be arranged for an additional fee.
We live along the Blue River and this little part of Indiana is a very special place. We are near a lot of public lands and the wildlife around here is abundant. We are very near the Ohio River, Blue River, and Marengo Caves. We are also near Louisville, Corydon, French Lick, and Holiday World. We feel like we have the best of all worlds here.

This property is conveniently located very near the Interstate yet feels very remote. The stocked lake is a mecca for wildlife of all types. The property makes for a great base-camp for a week long vacations and there is a lot of fun things to do all around us.
Probably the biggest unique benefit of our property is the stocked fishing lake and the proximity to all of the nearby activites....while still being remote.
great house for a beautiful fall weekend with the family! was closer to highway exit than I expected, no foosball table, issues with tv but we had a wonderful weekend & wonderful weather...clean & comfy house..would stay there again!
Don’t bother looking for the foosball table or the game room, they aren’t there. Neither is the TV unless you count the 13” in the basement hidden in the broken cabinet nowhere near the main seating area. “Hidden from the highway” makes it sound secluded… NOT!!! It’s right on the highway and you can hear the traffic from the living room because IT’S A MOBILE HOME, not a Lake House!!! I can’t believe I was conned into paying five star rates for a 1 star property. I feel robbed.
We enjoyed our stay at your vacation home. The weather was perfect and the house is cozy. My grandsons loved the fish pillows. They played with them everyday and asked if they could take them home. LOL. Perfect place to relax after a day at Holiday World. Thanks for renting it out. Property manager responded right away when needed!!
We are about 30 miles from Holiday World, 9 miles from Marengo Caves, 5-10 miles from canoeing, 37 miles to Louisville, and we are right among many Hoosier National Forest Trails and very near Patoka Lake.
