Photos and Description of this 2 bedroom holiday cabin in Rising Sun - Olde Post Cabin, Rising Sun,IN

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!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

An excellent home to stay in if you are visiting the nearby Creation Museum and Ark Encounter. The house is very comfortable, loved the cabin, much better than staying in a hotel!

One of a Kind

  • 5 of 5

We spent a very enjoyable week at this 200 hundred year old “Olde Post Cabin” in Rising Sun, Indiana. What a unique experience! Between the amazing restoration and the owner's beautiful decorations and furnishings, this adorable historic cabin is surely one of a kind.

Completely stocked with everything that you will need was more than we expected and we found it to be spotless when we arrived. Kay was also very helpful with everything to do and places to eat in the area including the history of the cabin.

Being on the banks of the Ohio River and watching the barges go by from the cabin or the beautiful park across the street was something to see. You'll also find that the town shops and of course the riverboat casino are just blocks away.

There were 79 visitor's comment sheets in the guest book on the coffee table. I read each one and agree with them all. A delightful & relaxing place to stay, in a beautiful historic cabin, on the Ohio River, in a quaint town, close to everything with very nice owners.

Unforgettable for sure.

The property was charming, comfortable, and very well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at Olde Post Cabin. It had everything we wanted. Comfortable beds and nice bathrooms. Spacious but cozy living area. And a well-stocked kitchen. The patio and yard are also very nice. Great view of the river. We had a great girls' weekend, and I plan to return with my husband and kids.

Everything we hoped for!

  • 5 of 5

This is truly a unique spot on the Ohio river. We enjoyed the peaceful and quiet small town, quaint shops and slow pace. The local restaurants were few but very good. The riverfront provided an exceptional vista for strolls, jogs and just sitting down to be still and watch the occasional barge pass by. Kay did a great job of providing all we needed to know about the local and greater surrounding area through brochure and in conversation. We visited the Ark Encounter (1 hour away) and the Creation Museum (30 minutes away). The drive was scenic and pleasant and not a burden at all. The cabin is stocked with everything we needed and more. It is cozy and the floors creek but that is to be expected in a 200+ year old cabin. It was clean, well landscaped and the air conditioner had no problem at all keeping things as cold as we wanted. We would gladly stay there again. Thank you Kay!

Wonderful Rich History

  • 5 of 5

We wanted a non-touristy type place to stay & boy did we find it!! This cabin is so full of history!! We adored that fact alone. But that was only part of it. The town is beautiful and quiet and the river was AMAZING!! It's the perfect home away from home!
