About Suzanne Sharp

Designed and hand built by the owner

What makes this cabin unique

Nestled back into the woods...very secluded! Bordered by the Yellowwood State Forest. A 15 minute drive either way from the village of Nashville or the city of Bloomington, IN. Also, 15 minutes from Indiana University, Bloomington.

Guestbook comments from the owner

"We had the best time, and I'm not

exaggerating when I tell you it was the best Thanksgiving I've had since I was a

kid. I feel nice and relaxed and wonderful. I was so pleased at how well kept and

supplied the cabin is. I brought half my kitchen with me, just in case, and didn't

need most of it. We had a lovely meal and my whole family is grateful for your

hospitality."

Excellent Getaway Spot

  • 5 of 5

I rented this cabin and it comfortably slept 8 guys for a weekend of grilling out and going out in Bloomington. The cabin has a pool table and a hot tub, and the kitchen has most of what you need to cook and grill just about anything. It's quiet and secluded and the owner is a top notch gentleman. I highly recommend this place and plan to go back.

Great cabin!

  • 4 of 5

Had a great time in this cabin during a wedding weekend recently! Easy to navigate to, just remember to take it easy on the winding back roads that lead to the cabin and you'll be a-ok. Very spacious with multiple decks and common areas to hang out in with a well equipped kitchen. The hot tub was our only disappointment as the jets only half work.

Great price and friendly owners! We enjoyed it so much we're thinking about staying again in the late fall.

Nice cabin, not great amenities, owners seem to not be interested in guests

  • 2 of 5

This is a review of "The Lake House", not the other cabins, as I think they are all different.

If you don't want to read a long review; this is a nice cabin for a decent price. There are some good activities, but not a lot. Its not on a lake and there are a number of things that could be upgraded to make the stay stand out.

my two star review is based on a nice cabin, that was pretty much as advertised, but that could have a number of improvements (many of them being free or very cheap), that would bring it to a 3 star experience. I would have appreciated a little more timely responsiveness from the owners. I also wish I had a bit more secluded and "back to nature" of a cabin. That being said, with internet, 2 couples and 3 days in the winter and some more options for TV, this could be a very nice little retreat.

Random thoughts: you are only about 15 minutes from the nice downtown with places to eat and shop. There is a place for a fire outside, but where do I get firewood? That would have been nice to know. As well as let me know a little bit more (from a personal perspective) about where to go and what to do in the neighborhood.

Owner's Response: JUST A FRIENDLY CLARIFICATION...this reviewer did not stay at the Back to Nature Cabin, the property where he posted his comments. And to avoid confusion to our guests...the Back to Nature Cabin is very secluded (.25 miles off a country road into the woods, to be exact!) and traditional Internet service is not available there. Our guests are welcome to gather loose wood from the property (17.5 acres!) for their camp fires. This cabin is 15 minutes from Lake Monroe, 10 minutes from the Brown County State Park, and 15 minutes to either Bloomington or little Nashville. There is so much to do! Our guests usually look at the list of suggested attractions on our website or contact us via email or phone for further suggestions. We are proud to share our little bit of nature with those who truly enjoy being "back to nature!"

We traveled with 2 other couples and found the cabin to be a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the beautiful surroundings. The cabin is spacious, clean, and comfortable. It exceeded our expectations.

Great Property and Great Owners!

  • 5 of 5

I am the best man in my friend's wedding and we decided to get a cabin right outside of IU's campus where we all went to school. I cannot speak highly enough of this cabin or the owners of this cabin. The places was everything we could've asked for and more. Suzanne and her husband were absolutely incredible as well. We saw them one time and it was right at checkout time. We were a little behind on getting out of there, but they were more than happy to leave us alone for an extra hour or two to get our stuff together and leave. For the cost of this cabin, I am confident that you cannot beat it. I will absolutely be back if I'm ever looking for a weekend getaway in Brown County, and I would HIGHLY recommend this to anyone else as well.

Thank you so much Back To Nature!

Great Family Weekend at Back to Nature Cabin

  • 5 of 5

Our family spent a wonderful four-day weekend here. It could not have been better. The house was clean and had everything we could want, including dinner settings for 10 people. We loved the fact that every room opens to a deck with a fabulous view and seating. It rained for two days but that didn't matter because many of the decks are covered and there is a game room with pool table, dart board and cd player. The BBQ is also terrific.

The road to the house is winding and becomes dirt at the end, which just added to the adventure and the seclusion. It also made for great walks through the woods.

We have rented many vacation homes and this one ranked as one of the most accommodating, comfortable and fun.
