Cozy New Cabin in the Country - The Bunkhouse

Bedrooms 1
Property type cabin


About the property

1 Bedroom, 1 Bathroom, 2 Sleeps

NOTE: At this time we have no plans to rent out the cabin in 2017. If we decide to change our minds, we will open up the calender.

Our cabin, located in Bourbon IN, is perfect for a couple's getaway or even for a single, looking for some alone time. Set in the 4 acre woods on our property, the cabin was a labor of love. Most of the cabin was built by us personally, including the kitchen, the floors and walls, rafters and woodwork, and some of the furniture. Rustic Pottery Barn is the decor style.

The cabin includes a living room and dining room, kitchen with a small fridge and a 2 burner stove, and a loft with a full size bed. There is a ladder that leads to the loft, so you must be okay with climbing a ladder.

The restroom (aka the "loo") is in a separate building behind the cabin. It is an outhouse, but a glorified very adorable outhouse with a claw-foot bathtub. Hot and cold running soft water. No shower, just the tub. There is a regular toilet seat and we do manage to keep an almost zero-odor for an outhouse. If you rent from us, you must be okay with this setup!

There is a front porch for sitting and rocking. Our fire-pit is complete with plenty of wood for some enjoyable nights around the campfire, roasting marshmallows and popping popcorn. We also have a special cooking fire-pit if you want to grill out.

Want to cool off? Our 25 ft. Above ground pool is in the perfect spot to catch some summer rays. Pool will be opened Memorial Day Weekend.

Our two-person hammock is very relaxing if you want to take a snooze. If you want a little fun, we have horseshoes, axe throwing, and cornhole.

We are one mile from the Back Forty Sporting Clays, so you will hear shotgun sounds during the day. We also run a lumber mill and the mill will be running during the day and you will see an occasional log truck. The evenings are quiet and the sunsets are beautiful on our dirt country road. A flower farm is next door and our road is perfect for a long walk... We think we have a haven out here in the country.

Our little town is 6 miles away and has a Family Dollar, a Subway, and a good pizza place. For more stores and restaurants, Warsaw is only 15 miles and has Wal-mart, Kohls, Carsons, Meijer, Ruby Tuesdays, Hacienda, Bob Evans and a variety of eateries.

We are located 30 miles south of South Bend (Perfect for Notre Dame weekends!) , 45 miles west of Ft. Wayne, 50 miles north of Logansport, 2.5 hours north of Indianapolis and 2.5 hours east of Chicago. Easy to get to the bigger cities.

For several years we owned and rented out our lake cottage, so we are very familiar with making our guests comfortable and had perfect reviews. We were full every week, with many who were repeat guests.

Testimonies about The Bunkhouse:

'Thank you for a beautiful place to unwind and simply relax. I love the rustic and beautifully handcrafted cabin, surrounded by trees. The interior is tastefully decorated and the front porch is a wonderful place to be at sunrise and sunset. I will definitely return.'

'This was our first trip to The Bunkhouse, only one week before the due date of our 2nd child. It really was the perfect little getaway for my husband and I before life gets a little more crazy. Kim & Terry, thank you for sharing your beautiful property with us. You are lovely hosts and we look forward to visiting you again in the near future.'

'We loved to get away for a little while. Thanks for sharing a place of respite.'

'Thank you for the beautiful stay. It was a great get away for a few days right after our wedding. Again, thank you for everything...'

'We had a great time! The cabin is absolutely gorgeous! Everything was perfect, down to the chocolates by the bed and the fresh cut flowers. Loved the "loo"... the clawfoot tub was nice. Can't believe how nice the whole property is. We will be back!'

"Loved the cabin! We only stayed one night, but it was so much more than any 5 star hotel we have ever stayed in. Wasn't sure what to expect at first, but it had a wow factor for sure. We had the whole property to ourselves. Definitely will book again next year, hopefully for a whole week!'

'What a great wonderful weekend. The best we've had in a long time. It's a great getaway. Look forward to returning down the road!'

Our cabin is suitable for a maximum of 2 adults. There is only one bed. Babies are welcome, but no toddlers because of the open loft.

We do not have cable or satellite, but the cabin does get 7-8 local stations. A dvd player is available. Bring your own videos. (We do have a small library.) Redbox available in town. No internet. However, if you need to check your email, we have wifi at our house and it makes it to the cabin porch and you are welcome to check your mail on wifi from our patio.

No visitors, please. Must be 21 or over. No "partying". TWO NIGHT MINIMUM.

Enjoy your stay with us!

Cozy New Cabin in the Country - The Bunkhouse
average rating of 4.5 based on 2 reviews

Great stay.

  • 5 of 5

This is a great place to stay!!!! The property is very quiet and very well kept with plenty to do such as horseshoes and a fire pit. The bunkhouse was super nice and cozy. I would recommend this for anyone that is ok with climbing a ladder to the loft and does not mind using the nicest outhouse I've ever seen.

Perfect Little Getaway!

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I booked the cabin a few weeks before the arrival of our second child. It was the perfect little getaway for us before life got a bit more crazy. When we arrived at the agin there was a very appealing feel of fresh country air quaint simplicity and quality hospitality.

The property and cabin itself were very well maintained and beautifully decorated. The cabin had quite a bit of space on the first floor and the loft was a cozy little nook to get a good nights sleep.

The owners of the property were very kind and hospitable and made us feel very comfortable on their property.

We would definitely book the Bunkhouse again.
