Beautiful Cabin On 16 Peaceful Acres in Brown County

Bedrooms 1
Space 1,610 sq ft
Property type cabin
Minimum Stay 2 nights


About the property

Sleeps Four. MBR plus Loft, One full bathroom

One bedroom w/ loft family cabin located on 16 wooded acres in NW Brown County. Great for a family and weekend getaways!

Very secluded, peaceful -- beautiful in all seasons. Big front porch and the property is full of wildlife.

I've owned this cabin for 18 years and regularly use it with my kids and my friends. And thus -- a family cabin. What you are getting is a second home established for native comfort. Nice beds, large working kitchen with most modern conveniences -- convection oven/stove, microwave, fridge (and stocked with basics that we use ourselves and you are also welcome to use), good cookware, dishwasher (that so-kountry moveable type), coffee maker, electric skillet, three (count 'em) Weber grills, random working spices, etc. I stay at rental homes myself from time to time -- I hate dealing with burned-up teflon skillets and dull knives. That won't be your issue -- I promise.

I adore music and if you do to, it's a fun experience. I have a new computer running itunes connected to the vintage stereo. And in itunes I have my music collection -- 36,000 songs for you to enjoy. I usually just play it on random -- it's a fun, permanent radio station. I also have about 300 LP records, from my 'youth'. There are two guitars, strung, played and maintained. A capo, extra strings, picks, etc. If you play, enjoy these.

There's a wood-burning stove which is wonderful to run during the cold months. Likely required in the Dec/Jan. There's a large, covered front porch, full of seating options. A great place to sit and gaze into the quiet show that is the woods directly in front of you. We have pileated woodpeckers and a red tailed hawk ranging on the property.

We have two big TVs and associated DVD players, stereo (already noted), new Windows 8 computer.

There is no internet. I use my iPhone. There is no cable. There is no landline phone. This is by design. I ditched the landline years ago and my alarm is on cellular. I've been waiting for cable/broadband to show up and we're somehow not yet on that map. But my iphone works fine down there and I use that as my hotspot if I'm working on my laptop. Or option B -- just turn off.

Two window unit AC's that do the job. Space heaters for the winter along with a propane wall unit and the woodstove. Firewood provided.

The bath is nice -- shower insert, pedestal sink, etc.

This is about a 20 year old cabin, built from a kit (courtesy of Poole Saw Mill in Helmsburg, IN). It's poplar log that was laid green and seasoned in-place for two years. Then finished. The man who built it, Daniel, is Amish and did a nice job. He lived on the property for about for about five years and there are several charming outbuildings -- outhouse, manger, canning shed, chicken coop and a little structure on the 'back 40'. Daniel lived in that crazy structure out back for a couple years with his wife and two kids while he was developing the property! I built a big barn in 2001. And there is a large deck on the rear. I recently bought two of those cantilevered umbrellas for shading, for the deck.

About Curt Churchman

I purchased this modern-built (c. 1998) cabin in 2000 and added a large deck, barn and did lots of grading to create a terraced hillside and a large, open back meadow. My kids and I have been continuous visitors through the years. I began renting our cabin in 2015 and hope that you might enjoy it the way we have and do. I live in Indianapolis, raise two boys and own an art gallery specializing in historic Indiana artwork.

Why Curt Churchman chose Morgantown

A wonderful, quiet retreat well off the beaten path. When I drive down from Indy, I open the car door and step out of my vehicle to... total quietude. If you're looking for an escape from your hectic, weekly routine this might be the answer.

What makes this cabin unique

With sixteen aces and much rolling terrain, strolling the property is a sweet diversion. My favorite pastime is listening to or playing music on the large and comfy front porch. I recently added new porch furniture and have remote operated fans. If it's warm enough, I spend a lot of time on the porch!

Wonderful remote cozy cabin on a beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

Wow! This place is an amazing remote get away close to Indianapolis on a beautiful property. The wood burning stove, fully stoked kitchen and the comfortable beds made for a great vacation. The wooded forest surrounding the property created the perfect ambiance. I highly recommend!

Beautiful location

  • 3 of 5

The location and land are beautiful. It's so quiet and peaceful and only a 20 minute drive to Nashville. I appreciate Curt's willingness to open his cabin to visitors. However, the cabin could really use a deep clean and some work (tub doesn't drain, fridge is rusted) to create a more relaxing stay. In addition, detailed instructions for using the wood burning fireplace should be included, for safety purposes. The cabin is beautifully built, but could use some TLC.

This cabin and the land surrounding it was perfect. We had a great time exploring the woods, having an outdoor fire and cooking dinner. Wish I could wake up every morning to such a serene setting.

Great Rustic cabin in the woods

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is settled in the woods surrounded by trees. We loved the porches where we sat and played games, listened to music, and had our morning coffee. We hung around by the fire pit and explored the property. The kitchen has good pots and pans, sharp knives, and was efficient. I brought my own spices. It isnt super clean, but its a cabin...and bugs and dirt are to be expected. The owner is extremely nice and answered all our questions. One note..wifi does not work well up there and i had a hot spot. We had a great time and didnt want to leave this beautiful location.
