Centreville House Rental Photos and Description

3 bedroom, 3 bath Full Log Home on the Prairie River in the middle of 130 acres

Please contact owners for pricing and information. 269-467-6132

Experience country log home living at its best. Looking for that private, secluded “retreat” beside a rippling river. A pastor’s wife described this grounds as “Heaven on Earth”. This home sleeps 8. There is an upstairs king with bath, two bedrooms (queen in one and single and full bed in another) with full bath on main floor, and sleeper sofa, full bed and single bed and bath on lower level. The master bedroom upstairs has river views, and one bedroom on main level has a queen bed. The bedroom with two full beds has view of river and glass door which opens onto the deck. Lower level has a double glass sliding door to River area. The dining area has a slider that opens to a full deck on the River.

You drive in a 1/4 mile drive across a wooden Bridge past old barns to the home.

This home is in the middle of 130 acres offering nature trails along the Prairie. This seclusion offers an abundance of wildlife with common sightings of deer, wild turkey, herons, rabbits, squirrels, many species of birds, including hummingbirds. There are also occasional sittings of eagles, fox, mink, otters, etc. On the nature trails there is a large pond area with a beautiful fountain and large Koi fish.

Easy to access; we are only 10 miles from the Indiana Toll Road, 2 1/2 hours from Chicago, 2 1/2 hours from Detroit, and just 30 minutes south of Kalamazoo MI.

The spring is a delightful time of year to watch the birth of a new season, on many occasions fawns can be seen wading in the river right out the cabin windows.

This peaceful riverfront three-story log home is on the edge of Amish Country. Take a drive through quaint Amish communities and shop at their many retail stores for food, flowers, baked goods and gifts. Situated only 30 miles from Shipshewana, a unique town with fantastic Amish dining and shopping. The famous Langley covered bridge is only a short drive or a bike ride away.

Sports enthusiasts; it is a few miles to great golf courses, many lakes and rivers for boating, fishing, kayaking in summer. Find both cross-country and downhill skiing within 30 miles for winter fun.

Satellite T.V. on each floor, with DVD and VHS players, and Xbox Kinect on lower level.

My family and I stayed in this amazing cabin for an entire week. The setting is peaceful, with plenty of activities around you. We weren't looking for anything but family time. It was a wonderful get away. The cabin was clean and it had everything we needed. The hospitality of the owners was genuine, and welcoming. We will be looking forward to coming back to this beautiful cabin next year.

Log Cabin Vacation.

  • 5 of 5

There were six adults in our party.

Three from Ohio and three from Illinois.

It was a reasonable drive for both families- about 3 and a half hours.

The grounds are beautiful- many trees and flowers.

Wildlife, too. Many beautiful song birds abound.

We saw deer and, their off-spring several times.

The cabin was beautiful, inside and out and immaculate!

Lots of room for the six of us.

It was decorated so lovely and well stocked with everyday essentinals.

We wouldn't have had to bring as much as we did.

The owners Pat and John were very courteous and pleasant.

Also they employ a young amish woman to water the ground flowers. She was a delite to talk to!

It is only about a 30 minute drive to Shipsewana IN.

A large Amish communitiy with lots to see and do.

The Praire River runs thru the property and the views from the back deck were fantastic.

The front porch and the back deck had comfortable chairs to sit on and relax. The back deck also has a comfortable swing- I took a nap on it a few times:)

I forgot to mention that the river was great for fishing.

.If you are anxious to get out of a busy, noisy city for awhile, this place will be for you.

I would describe it as peace and serenity!!

Nancy, from Cleveland OH

Wedding Weekend Stay

We stayed on the property the weekend of our wedding and it was perfect. The location of the cabin, and the space that you have to get ready for your wedding made everything so easy. It is clean, cute, and a great place to stay!

Beautiful Log Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

John and Pat's Log cabin is absolutely beautiful and a great place to get a way for many different kinds of individuals and groups. The cabin was extremely well maintained, clean, and inviting. When I arrived, everything was in order and set up for me and my friends to have a great weekend. John and Pat were more than accommodating and helpful when it came to questions I had about their property and activities to do in the area. One of my favorite features of the Log Cabin was the back deck. It is a great place to step outside and enjoy the surrounding wildlife and relax to the sounds of a small river meandering by not more than 50 feet from the house. I am glad that I decided to stay at John and Pat’s log cabin and have nothing but great things to say about it!
