About the property

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.

Why John or Pat Pierucki chose Centreville

We own 130 acres on the River and the Log home is in the middle of it all. Wildlife can be seen almost daily. We also operate an outdoor wedding venue on the property known as Riverside Receptions Etc.

This home is a great place to stay if you are in the area for a wedding and reception or any of the many great festivals or fairs that take place each year.

What makes this house unique

The views from the windows and porches are great. It is so relaxing to just sit and enjoy what Mother Nature is saying. Inside you have the experience of staying in a true full log home. There are River views from almost every room in the house.

Absolutely perfect for our needs!!

  • 5 of 5

The setting for our log home stay was absolutely perfect! The home is beautifully furnished, modern, and very clean. The large deck on back overlooks the winding river. The large swing on the deck was so soothing while the patio table for six accommodated many of our meals outdoors. Building fires in the fire pit was an evening ritual while waiting for the stars to come out.

With our three families (our son’s family, our daughter’s family, and us) we each had private bedrooms and baths on “separate” floors. We were surprised at the beds (a full and a twin) on the lower level besides all the sofa area.

From the flowers on the front and back porch to the extended grounds of the winding river, bridges, and gorgeous wedding reception area with tons more flowers and waterfalls, it was an amazing setting to relax in privacy. If you want a secluded area and not be bothered by other people or the desire to sightsee, then this log home would be a perfect choice. There are only a few places where I quickly say, “I would return”, and this is definitely one of those. And all of our children agree!

Quiet & Beautiful Get-A-Way

  • 5 of 5

We had 3 couples needing a secluded, quiet get-a-way! That is exactly what we got. This cabin was beautiful, spacious and comfortable. Lots of sightseeing attractions nearby. The back deck overlooking the river was where we spent most of our time. It was relaxing and quiet with just the rippling of the small, lazy river. The overall grounds were a beautiful backdrop for an outside wedding/celebration. Tons of amazing flowers grown onsight and incredible waterfall photo ops. This cabin and grounds are a beautiful diamond that shines brightly. We will definitely be back. Thank you John and Pat for allowing us to be part of your little paradise if only for a few days! You made us feel welcome! Cindy Kennedy, Middletown, IN

Excellent Property!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at the log home. Spacious, quiet, and clean. Excellent location along the river that was easy to get to. Very quiet and secluded for a nice relaxing time. John and Pat were perfect hosts. Couldn't have asked for more! We would go back in a heartbeat!

Book it! You won't be sorry!!

  • 5 of 5

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!!
