About Robert Woodling

Avid lover of the hardwood ecological environment. 2007 Indiana Outstanding Tree Farm of the Year. 2009 North Central Regional Outstanding Tree Farm of the Year. Retired from Indiana University in 2010. I play in the woods, that's what I do.

Robert Woodling purchased this house in 2009

Why Robert Woodling chose Indiana

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.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed in a number of cabin rentals and have had a wide range of experiences. While all of them were good, some stand out as better than others. The difference is the little things. This property is obviously well maintained and the few 'small things' in the kitchen make a big difference in comfort and experience. Thank you so much for taking the time to put that effort into your property and our experience. My wife and I do not get much time to be away from the 'real world' so this really means a lot to us. It may be a business for you, but for us it is freedom, nature and just being able to be with each other. My only suggestion would be some trail markers. Your property brought us an experience that we will cherish for years. Thank-you!

P.S. This place is a bird lovers paradise! Loved it! And thanks for the wild flower bouquet!! :-))

Family Reunion at Elm House

  • 5 of 5

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.

Nature, hot tub, firepit and a fully stocked kitchen! Tbis place is perfect

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and well kept. Plenty of room for a movie night and plenty chairs for everyone to sit by the fire. (we had 13 around the fire)

Huge outdoor table for company 2 good size rooms and the master is absolutly massive! Our favorite part of our stay was the trails in the back of the property. Tons of mowed and very well maintained trails we saw a lot of birds and even a few deer. These guys go above and beyond on this property.

Awesome Cabin in the Woods

  • 5 of 5

My friends and I stayed here for a weekend bachelor party and had an amazing time. The place was very clean and we didn't have any problems at all. This place is about 20 minutes away from stores/gas stations/bars and definitely offered the seclusion we were looking for while not being too far away from civilization. Hot tub was amazing and is much bigger than the photos would lead you to believe!
