About Deborah Porter
Owners Debbie and Butch purchased this cabin as their retirement home. Still a few years away from retirement, we decided to rent it and share the peaceful wooded surroundings with nice guests and families. We work very hard to have everything just right when groups arrive, just like we would want it for our own family.
Deborah Porter purchased this Cabin in 2007

We had 15 people staying at the lodge and everything was perfect. Could not ask for a better place. Hope to return next year!
We, all 19 of us, spent a weekend in the Wise Old Owl Cabin in the woods! Excellent!
This Cabin was in the exact location we were looking for: privacy, fall foliage, woods for our young explorers (grandchildren) and older family members to enjoy, French Lick and West Baden nearby as well as Lake Patoka. The Cabin is well maintained, kitchen with everything you need for meal preparations! We loved the rustic decor, the fire pit was a big hit, and some of the grandchildren enjoyed the hot tub! The combination gas/charcoal grill needs some attention, but there were other alternatives. In summation, it was definitely a weekend to remember as all enjoyed the environment, ambience, and the family gathering. We thank Debbie and Butch for making this Cabin available,
Delightful weekend with my family
This is a delightful place that comfortably accommodated my family of 5 adults and is close enough to Louisville that other members can come for the day. Last year a group of 10 women family members stayed. While there is a lot to do in French Lick and the surrounding area we enjoyed sitting by the fire pit and sharing stories. And if it rains there is plenty of room on the two large porches. Every utensil you could want to prepare a meal is available. The Table comfortably seats 6 and there is a folding table if there are more. The owners go out of their way to welcome you and make sure you are comfortable. This was my second group gathering at this cabin and I feel confident there will be more.
This property is clean, spacious & the owners have thought of everything! Will definitely return if possible.
BEAUTIFUL cabin in a BEAUTIFUL setting!!
Our family spent the weekend here and it couldn't have gone better!! We enjoyed the campfire every night, the hot tub, and the BEAUTIFUL yard had plenty of room for our grandchildren to enjoy a bounce house!! The cabin had plenty of space for 8 adults and 7 grandkids. Debbie didn't miss a detail when it came to stocking the cabin. It was lacking nothing!! I highly recommend the Wise Old Owl Cabin if you are visiting French Lick!!!
