Beautiful Log Cabin Located on 20 Acres of Hilltop Property

Bedrooms 2
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Cabin, 2 bedrooms including Loft, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4-6)

Our log cabin was completed in July of 2010 on 7.5 acres we fell in love with the first time we saw the property in March of 2009. Call 812-726-4849, check out our website turkeyhillcabinrentals or email us to find out more about additional accommodations we have recently added on the 20 acres we now have.This part of southern Indiana is so unique. The view reminds us of our many trips to eastern TN. We never get tired of seeing wild turkeys and white-tailed deer walking across the front yard. Since we are a mile off the main road and at the end of the lane, no traffic passes by. Couples and families have enjoyed our cabin. With solid log construction and wood through-out, this cabin is set apart from others.

This quiet retreat area is just minutes away from a wide range of activities. Guest often comment that there is so much to do. You can enjoy Patoka Lake with all its boating, fishing, etc. Go to Indiana's playground in historic French Lick, IN. Not many small towns can offer a world class casino and golfing, indoor water park and go-carting, seasonal train rides into the Hoosier National Forest, local winery with a wonderful sample of Indiana's best wines, two historically registered hotels to tour, Paoli Peaks Snow skiing, and more.

About Mildred Giltner

We are Terry & Millie Giltner. This shows us with our 2 grandchildren who we love to spend time with as well our 2 daughters, son and son-in-law. We have a background in building log homes so building this vacation rental on property which we plan to also retire to was an amazing adventure. Living an hour away we manage and clean the cabin ourselves because we truly enjoy the time we spend on Turkey Hill.

Mildred Giltner purchased this cabin in 2010

Why Mildred Giltner chose French Lick

Great Cabin!

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was great, we loved everything about it! We planned a trip with our dog and had a great time, the yard at the cabin was great for playing ball. We were able to ride the train with him and take a canoe trip with him. Patoka Lake was a nice surprise we weren't expecting and enjoyed a whole afternoon sitting by the lake and letting our dog swim and play ball. We will definitely recommend this cabin and Southern Indiana to our family and friends!

This is a fabulous place and so private. it has all the amenities you would want and the hot tub covered on the screened porch is a huge plus. if you want solitude, but be within a few miles of great dining and a casino (west baden and French lick hotels) then this is the place to be.

We had a fantastic peaceful time at this cabin. It was very clean, well furnished, and beautifully decorated. We loved the location, pet friendly feature, and homey feel to the cabin. We hope to go back annually!

Great Cabin

  • 4 of 5

Really nice cabin, really great location. There is one "neighbor" that is within view but is mostly blocked by trees. The rest of the property is wide open. Just a short little drive from things to do in French Lick. Nice living room area, tv and surround sound for movie watching and hot tub was relaxing.

The owners have done a great job looking after the property and making sure that everything was taken care of. The pictures do not do the property justice.

Tv controllers in the right spot, all instructions easy to find for stereo devices etc. all cooking utensils and

linens right where we needed them cabin was very clean.

We also enjoyed French lick dont miss Hinshaw rock n gems

The cabin was like new and the views of the stars and wildlife were also perfect.

We saw deer and a wild turkey,my dog Mollie had a great time roaming the hill next to the cabin.

It is rare when you get what you pay for I have almost become jaded with not trusting people but these owners are good people.

We will be back soon

Thank you so much.
