Sorry, the Dogwood Springs Guesthouse is closed to any new reservations for the 2017-2018 calendar years at this time.

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.

Absolutely gorgeous home & property.

  • 5 of 5

We loved this home. The layout is fantastic for a large group. We had 8 adults & 12 children staying & we never felt crowded. The owners have thought of every need you may have. Including my son forgot his deodorant & they had a cabinet stocked with toiletries you may have forgotten. Every shower has shampoo, conditioner, and body wash. Great feature, saves space when packing. We took advantage of the trails & the ponds. We hope to return sometime during the summer.

Great!!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit. Everything was wonderful and gave us the privacy and space we needed for 10 women on retreat. Accommodations were great and it's nice to be able to walk in and have everything you could possibly need.

Absolutely Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

We had our mother-daughter reunion here for a few days right after Christmas. There were 9 of us, but the house is big enough for many more. The house is beautifully situated in the woods - the trails and lake shore provided endless amusement for the kids even though it was winter. The exterior spaces that we didn't use (fire pit, play set) seemed to be in excellent condition. The house itself is very thoughtfully provisioned and equipped. The TV/video setups have clear instructions that actually work! The bathrooms were spotless, with soap and shampoo dispensers in the showers. The kitchen is a rental dream come true. Huge sink and a stove large enough to roast a buffalo. All of the pots, pans and utensils that you need to cook real meals. Cabinets and drawers are thoughtfully labeled on the outside. The dining area table really does seat 20 and there are enough dishes and silverware to feed at least that many. There is a second dining table in the official dining room and that was a perfect spot to set up our jigsaw puzzles. With the fireplace room and the recreation room we could have easily brought all of the boy children along too and never known they were there. We never left the property during the 3 days we stayed, and so can't comment on the area amenities.

Peaceful

  • 4 of 5

Our family celebrated Christmas at Dogwood. There was plenty of space for us in the house with each of us having favorite areas ( fireplace room and pool table were two common favorites.). We put away work and relaxed by walking the trails (plenty of wildlife) and taking a few naps. This was our first stay at Dogwood and have already been discussing when we could come again.

Amazing weekend - everything was perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We were able to have our second annual family gathering for Christmas. Family/friends from many states were able to easily find the place and there was plenty of room. No issues and the place was as described. While planning Vaughn was very responsive and the overall planning was easy. The house is well maintained and the place was even decorated for Christmas.

The only drawback was not being able to utilize the beautiful lake - since it was snowing! Gorgeous scenery and loved how private everything was.

We will definitely consider staying here in the future!
