About the property

Charming Historical Cabin, 2 Bedroom, 1 1/2 Bath Cabin on the Ohio River

This 2 bedroom cabin (one queen bedroom and one full size bedroom) is tastefully decorated with charm, with a full bath to include a claw foot tub/shower located on the lower level and a half bath located on the bedroom level. The cabin is fully furnished in keeping with the period, but with all modern conveniences. For those who cannot do stairs, there is an electric stair lift. The kitchen is fully furnished with all the necessities of a home kitchen, including washer and dryer. The cabin is located directly on the Ohio River in downtown Rising Sun, Indiana, which is within walking distance of the Rising Star Casino and within 20 miles of Belterra Casino and the Hollywood Casino.

In 1819 the cabin site was used as a hat shop and became the original post office for Rising Sun. The cabin was last restored in the mid-90's.

The cabin has all modern conveniences to include big screen TV, charming fireplace with insert for a cozy feeling with a view out the front windows of the cabin of the Ohio River. Excellent location for boaters on the Ohio River or for a romantic get-away, or a beautiful location for a wedding on the river front or in the gated backyard. Alley access is available for off the street parking with a covered car shelter. The cabin has such charm and you will enjoy strolling the river front enjoying the views, the downtown shopping area of Rising Sun and the local area activities.

About Dan and Kay Rager

My husband and I are local to the area and we will be greeting and meeting you when you check in the cabin. If you need information about the local area and attractions, we will be glad to assist you.

Dan and Kay Rager purchased this cabin in 2012

Why Dan and Kay Rager chose Indiana

We purchased this property from a private owner's estate and have tried to maintain the property as the former owner would have liked. The cabin is a charming, peaceful place to enjoy the river front and activities of the community on the river front.

What makes this cabin unique

Many guests have remarked that staying at the cabin is like being at home as we try to provide everything a guest would need while staying with us. We offer so much more than a hotel room and the cabin provides you more privacy than a bed and breakfast. This is your home away from home!

Perfect place to kick back and relax

  • 5 of 5

I was looking for a place to unwind from work and this area hit the spot. So glad I booked the Olde Post Cabin. Kay and Dan have set up a wonderful place and thought of everything. Kay checked me in and provided suggestions on where to eat and what to do. The Red Wolf Sanctuary and Creation Museum were fantastic! Also would recommend driving down the river to Madison. It is a beautiful drive. Look forward to returning!

Absolutely Perfect

  • 5 of 5

The Olde Post Cabin was absolutely perfect. The setting is amazing. You can sit outside and watch the boats go by. You can walk to the casino and other downtown stores. Everything was provided for and nothing was missed even the tiniest details such as chocolate mint for the bedrooms. It was an absolute pleasure staying there.

The cabin was immaculate and we would definitely stay again.

  • 5 of 5

We stumbled across the Old Pointe Cabin when searching for a place to stay near the Ark Encounter. We had never heard of Rising Sun and were pleasantly surprised. We took a walk by the river and enjoyed the most delicious ice cream cones. We learned about the history of the cabin...a bonus. The cabin is beautifully decorated and the gardens are nicely maintained. Wish we could have spent more time there. Thank you, Kay, for sharing this jewel. My granddaughter enjoyed the snacks :-)

Clean and inviting

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from staying at the Olde Post Cabin. I can't say enough good about this place. The care of the grounds and Cabin was meticulous. The Cabin was clean, well stocked for a comfortable stay, and so inviting. We enjoyed being within walking distance of the park and several good places to eat. Kay was very helpful in giving us tips about how to get around town and advice to make our stay enjoyable. We really enjoyed the quaint and quiet atmosphere. It was such a relaxing place to be...and the beds slept GREAT!!

Beautiful Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

I had such a lovely and relaxing stay in the Cabin on the Ohio River. It is more beautiful and quaint than the pictures suggested. The bed in the master room was comfortable, the kitchen had everything you would need, the wifi from the place next door worked perfectly well on outside patio area, the garden was exquisite! I hope to be back!

Thank you so much!

Nice short stay!

  • 5 of 5

I like to find different and unique places for my family to stay. This house was probably one of the most unique. Kay, the owner, was very easy to work with. She met us at the house and gave us a tour and bit of history. She could not have been nicer! Beds were very comfortable. We thought we were going to get around and leave early, but enjoyed relaxing in the home! If we are ever in the area, I am sure we would stay again.

The Creation Museum is only a 30 minute drive from the cabin. The Ark is about a one hour drive - Williamstown, Kentucky. Many guests are finding it easy to make both attractions while enjoying the cabin on the river front. The Red Wolf Sanctuary is only minutes away (reservations required for tour). The Rising Star Casino is within walking distance and on shuttle bus route.
