Why Robert Woodling chose Benton
We purchased this property as the last parcel of the original farm dating back to the 1860s. It is now part of our 103 acre managed forest. Enjoy your stay with access to the forested trails, wildlife ponds, birdwatching observation towers and still be within easy driving distance of all Brown and Monroe counties have to offer.
What makes this House unique
Enjoy all that nature and the surrounding communities have to offer during the day and a relaxing hot tub in the evening followed up by a movie on the large screen TV, listen to your favorite music, or just visit with family and friends.

Family Reunion at Elm House
This was our first time renting a house and boy did we hit the jackpot! There was plenty of room to accommodate our family members that came from north & south Indiana and Michigan. Elm House was very clean and inviting. Because of the rain and lightening storms we were disappointed that we could not enjoy the hiking trails and the hot tub. The weather got better just in time for our family barbecue. Everyone was amazed at how nice Elm House was. If your looking for a very nice place to stay out in the beautiful country, Elm House is a must. Thank you Robert Woodling for making your home a wonderful place to stay.
Thank-you for the kind words. I am glad you were able to enjoy your family and get in a BBQ in spite of the crazy weather. I really appreciate the care you took of the property and the wonderful condition you left it in.
Hope to see you and your family again in the near future.
Nice property, slept all 8 of us easily.
I’ve just returned from our family Christmas/NYE celebration. In looking for a place a month out to have my immediate family and spouses come together, we found Elm House. Although it was negative degrees out, we enjoyed the hot tub. Would love to comeback when it’s less cold to explore the rest of the property. Robert was kind and easy to work with. Fresh flowers awaited our arrival. Thanks, Robert and Elm House for providing a great house for our family to enjoy over the holidays!
Nothing like a hot tub in sub-zero weather!
We are glad you enjoyed Elm House with your family and we look forward to your return during warmer climes to explore the forested trails and beauty of the property.
Very clean and spacious property with beautiful wooded view.
This property serves our family well fior our thanksgiving get together. Very simple, spacious property in a quiet setting. This is our third thanksgiving here. We also enjoy the surrounding area of Bloomington.
Perfect and Cozy
This was a wonderful spot for my bachelorette weekend get away!
Fantastic setting for a small group for some peace and quiet.
Robert (owner) was quick to communicate. Place was isolated with wilderness all around. You could hear lots of wildlife at night. Decks and yard added lots of space for our group to congregate for some fun times.
Beautiful & tranquil setting made for a peaceful stay
The host was very responsive and easy to deal with. The hot tub was the best I've ever encountered in a rental. Many jets with great placement! The kitchen was also very well
equipped and had everything you might want/need. It was unseasonably hot while we were there and the air conditioning worked wonderfully. The wi-fi connection was not good and very spotty at best, but it is out in the country. Some end tables in the living room would be appreciated! All in all a very nice stay.
Located on 103 acres of nationally recognized forest. Excellent hiking and birdwatching trails with observation posts. Three wineries and six micro breweries within a 15 minute drive. Peaceful, secluded area yet within minutes of Bloomington, Indiana University, a thriving nightlife, arts and entertainment venues. 45 minutes from Indianapolis airport, Colts and Pacers home arenas.
