Cloverdale House Rental Photos and Description

6-7 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 16+

A nice country retreat consisting of 40+ wooded acres looking out on a 7 acre private lake located 40 miles west of Indianapolis off Interstate 70 . Enjoy boating, swimming and great fishing-the lake is stocked with bass and blue gill. Miles of hiking trails venture in the adjoining woods of Dogwood Springs Forest Preserve that are especially beautiful in the fall. Large, fully equipped kitchen with seating for 20 includes industrial oven/range. Living room views the lake with comfortable seating and HD TV. A large deck off the kitchen and living room is equipped with barbecue and two patio tables. Or use the fire pit barbecue area near the lake. The cabin room has the fireplace and an assortment of books for reading. The game room is in the lower level having a television, pool table, kitchenette and walk out patio. The Dogwood Springs Guesthouse is a destination location suitable for family reunions & group getaways.

The house is recently remodeled, fully furnished and stocked with everything you need except food. We will do all we can to make your stay an enjoyable and memorable experience. Please use caution because you are in a wilderness area and use of the lakes is at your own risk. Life vests are provided for swimming. We recommend you bring sunscreen, insect repellent and your own fishing gear. No fishing license is required. Also, please use caution, there is heavy truck traffic on HWY 243 from the local quarries. Thank you for your interest.

The Perfect Getaway Home

  • 5 of 5

Both the interior and exterior of the property were kept in excellent condition. This home is perfect for entertaining large groups. There is plenty of room for people to sleep and the outdoor space allows for a variety of activities for any age including a playground, private lake, yard, hiking trails, golf cart and much more! The secluded location is a very nice feature too.

Great place for a family vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family loved our time at Dogwood Guesthouse. It was clean with excellent appliances and electronics. We all had a great a a time using the paddle boats, fishing, cooking s'mores at the outdoor fire pit, and swimming in the lake. So glad we rented the golf cart which was a big hit. The kids loved driving thru the woods on Sassafras Trail. We highly recommend it and will definitely go back again.

July 17th thru July 20th Family Gathering

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved the home! We had three families come to the home for a yearly get together. Two families from Michigan and one from Kansas City, we met half way. All the adults had their own bedroom and grandma had her own family room and handicap bathroom. The kids from 10-16 had lots of room to hang out from boating to movies to playing pool, fishing and a Bon fire. They all wished we had one more day for fun and games. Wal-mart not too far away for groceries, the kitchen had everything we needed including tape to wrap birthday gifts. We hope we can return in the future. I recommend this home with five stars!!! Thank you to the owner, a wonderful person to work with.

Thank You! Thank You!

An excellent getaway for anyone loving Nature!

  • 5 of 5

Our family found Dogwood Guesthouse a perfect place to relax and play. The woods and lake were wonderful for our five grandchildren--swimming in the lake, especially. A birthday celebration of ice cream around the fire pit our last evening was spectacular with a gorgeous sunset over the lake. The house provided more than we expected for our stay, and it was clean and well maintained. Getting help on a kitchen item was quickly resolved and helpful. We highly recommend this place for people in a wide range of ages.

Wonderful attention to detail

  • 5 of 5

I just spent a fabulous 2 days in this lovely home. I was on a Women's Retreat with 7 other ladies. The kitchen is stocked with every possible thing you could need. Cabinets are labeled so that things are easy to find and put away. The dishes are high quality - not a mish mash of garage sale finds. Even the paper products provided are high quality. We had trouble with the gas fireplace and one of the owners came over in minutes to light it for us. Thank you Nathan! It was a pleasure to stay there and we hope to do it again next year!

A perfect getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 5 couples had a wonderful stay at the Dogwood Springs Guest House. It was spacious and cozy at the same time. Lots of room for all of us to play games and watch movies but also some quiet spots for curling up with a book. The kitchen was supplied with any pot or utensil we could need. We all slept soundly in the comfy beds. The property is beautiful with lots of opportunities for enjoying nature. We loved it!
