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!

Wonderful Vacation

  • 5 of 5

The cabin is a very cozy, very comfortable two story, located right across the street from the Ohio River. We had a wonderful and relaxing time and enjoyed nearby businesses. The surprise star of our stay was the Red Wolf Sanctuary right up the road.

Kay did a wonderful job in showing us the cabin and talking up the neighborhood. She also has the cabin well stocked and the supplies in the kitchen right down to details like wine glasses and snacks (thanks for the Reese's).

We throughly enjoyed our stay and highly recommend this place.

Takes you back

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful cabin sits facing the Ohio. Four of us stayed and we had plenty of room. It has everything you need to stay there. For older folks that balk at having the bedrooms up stairs, there is a motorized seat that will take you up or down the stairs. We did use it but not for our bodies but for our luggage, that made it really easy to get our stuff upstairs. For being and old rustic cabin it was very, very comfortable. If you want a feel of living back in the "old days" this is the place. It is really close to everything in town, the owner Kay, was very helpful in recommending places to eat, shop, see.

Thank you again Kay,

Skip and Diana Miller

Owner's Response: Thank you Sandy. Sorry I wasn't able to meet and check you in. Feeling better, but not over this flu bug. Hope when your travels bring you back to this area, you remember the Olde Post Cabin. Kay
