About David or Vickie Newton

Dave and I have been married 43 years. We have always enjoyed camping and our family time.

We often enjoy quiet week ends here, but also love it when all our kids join us.

We have plenty of room for tents and campers and a loft the kids call their own.

David or Vickie Newton purchased this cabin in 2003

Why David or Vickie Newton chose Indiana

We purchased this property several years ago and used it for camping for a couple of years and decided to build a cabin.

The way the cabin is situated you are shielded from the road by trees and you have a perfect camping experience with all the comforts of home.

What makes this cabin unique

In 2015, Memorial Day our grandson a (marine) married his wife (army) in the woods . We had a regular tent city, with about 20 people staying here, with 4 horses and some very well behaved dogs.

Very pleased the septic system handled the crowd with out a problem.

Wonderful memories have been and will continue to be made here.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank You for allowing us to stay in your beautiful cabin. It is much better than primitive camping. The kids LOVED the loft, and my husband and I loved the bed, very comfortable. We had zero trouble with the hot water and the AC units kept the cabin nice and cool. I would how ever suggest adding more stepping stones by the porch where it floods and some tiki torches by the fire pit. Other than that we had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed the getaway and will definitely return.

Really is a piece of heaven.

Was a great little cabin. I am so grateful to them for being able to accommodate us on such short notice. Perfect place to get away for the weekend. If passing through Louisville and need a break this is the place for you. Pets are also welcome with open arms. Thanks again.

Nice and quiet

  • 4 of 5

Good place to go if you want to get away from things, but it is rustic. Daytrips to Louisville are no problem -- about a 35 minute drive.
