About the property

3 BR, 2 Bath, Finished Basement With 2 Living Room. Large Stocked Fishing Lake

The Sleeping situation:

The house comfortably sleeps 12 people. There are 3 bedrooms and 6 bunks in the finished basement. The master bedroom features a king bed and private bathroom with separate shower and garden tub. A second bedroom with double bed overlooks the lake and a large expanse of land, perfect for wildlife viewing. The third bedroom is furnished with a set of twin beds. Downstairs is a finished basement featuring six twin beds, a TV with DVD/VCR player, and many movies to choose from.

The stocked fishing lake:

This house overlooks a large, private, stocked lake. A dock and a small fishing boat (with oars and life preservers) are provided for those who want to try their hand at fishing in the lake. A fishing license is not required.

A covered breezeway and a large deck (with tables and chairs, plus built-in bench) overlook the lake, making for great places to relax.

The other house amenities:

The main level features a fully stocked kitchen with a full size refrigerator, electric stove, oven, microwave, dishwasher and rolling workstation. The kitchen is open to the dining room and huge living area (with gas log fireplace). This open floor plan allows for large groups to congregate comfortably. The dining area also opens onto the large back deck overlooking the lake via a sliding glass door.

Downstairs is the finished basement that has 6 bunks, a TV with DVD/VCR player, and many movies to choose from. There is a separate game room with foosball table and plenty of room to hang out. Plus, the walkout basement offers an exit to the lake and a nice view.

Our Location:

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.

Our area:

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

Let us know what your interests are and we will help you plan your trip.

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.

About Missi Bush-Sawtelle

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.

Missi Bush-Sawtelle purchased this house in 2011

Why Missi Bush-Sawtelle chose Indiana

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Owner Missi was very hard to work with

  • 1 of 5

The place was very dated but nice access to the Blue River but sadly we won't return because the owner Missi was so hard to deal with. She entered our place while we were there and harassed us the whole time. Plus, she seemed to have some sort of alcohol or drug issue because she seemed inebriated the whole time (they live real close).

Overpriced Double Wide

  • 1 of 5

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.

Nice roomy house on a pond. Close to activities

  • 4 of 5

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!!
