About Deborah Porter

Owners purchased this cabin as their retirement home. Still a few years away from retirement, we decided to rent it and share the peaceful surroundings with nice guests.

Deborah Porter purchased this cabin in 2007

Why Deborah Porter chose French Lick

17 acres of peacefulness, lots of birds and wildlife. Stress relief from hectic everyday life---our cabin allows you to relax and enjoy each other and nature. French Lick, West Baden, Patoka Lake, Paoli Peaks, Marengo Cave, Blue River,

are all within short driving distance from our cabin.

What makes this cabin unique

Large enough for families or groups up to 20--everyone has a bed!

Yet small enough for just 2 to 4 people and still seem nice and cozy. Just ask our honeymoon couples! Nature all around, firepit in the evenings--hot tub--peaceful slumber! Only 3 miles from the entrance to Patoka Lake Park.

Picturesque cabin on quiet road

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stay in 3-4 cabin rentals yearly and found this one to be one of the very nicest. It is very well decorated and fully equipped. You truly feel like you are back at your weekend home rather than at a under equipped, sterile, rental property. It is also extremely clean, well maintained, and owner managed by the nicest folks you could work with.It's a short drive to Paoli Peaks Ski Resort and a large lake which is a bonus as well.

Perfect cabin getaway!

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for allowing us to enjoy your beautiful cabin! It was the perfect weekend getaway for celebrating our friends 60th birthday! We all had plenty of room to spread out and the cabin was immaculate and well stocked with everything you would ever need and more. Our birthday girl loves nature and feeding the birds so it was a perfect place for a weekend getaway.

You can tell the owners take great pride in taking care of their beautiful place. The owner was very responsive and so nice to work with and everything was exactly as pictured online.

Thanks again for sharing your beautiful cabin with us! We had an awesome time!

Great place for Family Retreat!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have made numerous trips to the Smoky Mountains over the past 25 years with Church Youth Groups and our Family. We were looking for a place to enjoy a weekend retreat with our children and grandchildren without driving 6 hours to the Smokies. This cabin was just what we were hoping for. The accomodations are first class and the owners are just as accomodating. Would recommend to anyone and we will revisit this cabin. Thanks Wise Old Owl for a great weekend!

Beautiful conntry setting.

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house and property situated in a rural setting, close to boat ramps. The house is well appointed with a loft bedroom/private bath with a king bed and a ground floor bedroom with a king bed/private bath. Basement is kind of a dorm setting with several double beds. The kitchen is definately better stocked than what yoiu usually get with rental property with lots of useable kitchen utensils and appliances. Nice place fixed outside for outdoor fires with seating. We were really pleased with everything! I arrivved early and shortly a young lady showed up to let me in and showed me how everything worked this is very helpful. We highly recommend this rental and would definately stay again.

Perfect for our large group!!!!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled to Louisville with our Sr. FFA Officer's for National Convention. There were 10 high school teenagers and 2 adult chaperones. We couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Perfect accommodations and enjoyed being able to cook for them. They had a fire with S'motes almost every night. Would highly recommend to anyone!!!! Thank you agina for allowing us to stay in your home.....-DeSoto Sr. FFA Officers and chaperones- Arcadia, FL

Secluded Simple Elegance--many local attractions

  • 5 of 5

Our group consisted of half a dozen young men. With three Bathrooms and and all 20 places to sleep, we did not feel crowed at all; however it would still feel cozy to a couple. The Cabin is set back a fair distance from a rural gravel road and is surrounded by acres of woods with no neighbors near--very private. The area is jam-packed with attractions and we were not able to take advantage of them all. We toured Marengo Cave and also went to the Beach at Patoka State Park. The Owner was a pleasure to work with and would recommend this cabin.
