About the property

Cabin, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-6)

Situated on 7.5 wooded acres, ONE MILE from Moores Creek boat ramp on Lake Monroe, this newly built log home offers the best of both worlds. After a long day of boating, water skiing, or fishing, guests can return home and relax in the hot tub or continue the day's fun in the games room playing pool or darts. The Fairfax State Recreation area is also nearby for swimming at Lake Monroe. Guests can bring their own water craft or they can rent a boat from one of the local rental companies. The cabin reservation includes complimentary use of three kayaks (liability waiver must be signed prior, and guests must transport to the lake.) The Lake House sleeps 6 guests and is just minutes away from Bloomington, IU, and Nashville where good dining, entertainment, and shopping are in abundance.

Amazing log cabin adventure!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our weekend getaway to this beautiful log cabin. We felt like we were a world away but we were only 15 minutes from the restaurants and shops in Bloomington. We even had pizza and ice cream delivered!!! The cabin is wonderful, spacious and with everything we needed, including a fireplace and a pool table! The beds were very comfortable and everything was nice and clean. We got plenty of use out of the hot tub, and spent the evenings sitting around the fire pit, gazing up at the very bright stars. The owners couldn't have been nicer, and were very helpful whenever we had a question. They were very responsive and had some good suggestions for us. The weather was in the 60's and sunny, so we went to Brown County State park and did some hiking and had a picnic lunch there. We also went to Nashville and walked around that quaint town. I truly wish we could have spent more time at the cabin, but there is so much to see and do in the area, that a weekend flies by much too fast. We will definitely be back, and hopefully for a much longer stay!

Cozy cabin for a cold winter day

  • 5 of 5

Stayed at The Lake House for a weekend in January. Very clean and cozy! Very cold walk to and from the hot tub which is off the wrap around deck and down about 8 steps, but once we got into the warm water it was all worth it! We grilled with the charcoal grill, enjoyed playing pool, and liked the mounted speakers for the radio so we could hear it throughout the home. The views are great, looking down into the wooded ravine behind the house. And just a short drive into Bloomington. Thanks to the Sharps for a great weekend getaway! We loved your cabin.

Great weekend at this cabin!

  • 5 of 5

a few of my friends and I took the weekend and stayed at the Lake House. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and the place is very nice and well-kept. The cabin is up-to-date and was clean. The hot tub was nice but was having a technical issue the morning of the second day. I called the owner, Peter, and he was there and repaired it within hours on a Saturday. I appreciated the awesome guest service. Thank you!!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Cabin was awesome! Stairs leading to hot tub do need to be secured a little more. Loved sitting on the side porch to stargaze and enjoy the sounds. Had a great time relaxing! Would definitely come back.

Great for a guys football weekend

  • 5 of 5

This log home offered much more than we utilized. It has a hot tub, (3) 1-person kayaks with life vests and paddles, pool table, dart board, a couple televisions & great natural woods to hike. We were able to spread out as there were (3) sleeper sofas as well as two king beds. Probably better for older guys like us with some extra weight to take the beds as they offer more support than the sleepers. One guy in our group switched from the main living area sleeper one night to the king bed the next night and slept much better. Good communication with owners via email. Located about 15 minutes from the IU campus. Very quiet at night for optimal rest. Located in the woods so an occasional spider or web can be expected. We had to evict one of them :) Certainly not scarey enough for us to lower our star rating. Would stay here again!
