About the property

The Hawk's Nest is a newly-built, authentic, handcrafted log cabin with all the modern amenities. It sits on a bluff overlooking the Ohio River and serene, Kentucky farmland. Located five minutes from I-64 in Crawford County, Indiana, the cabin is easy to reach. The site is park-like, and although not secluded, guests enjoy plenty of privacy. The cabin contains a full bath and kitchen. It also has heat/ac, as well as television, private hot tub, fire-pit, and outdoor gas grill. Rent a cabin, relax, and watch the river boats float by!

This cabin exceeded our expectations. The view and privacy can't be beat. Karen and her husband had every aminity. We didn't use the hot tub or fire pit but if it were fall/winter we definitely would have. Wonderful A+ 10/10

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

The cabin had everything we could have possibly needed inside. The views were amazing and the piece and tranquility even better. It's a great place to unwind relax and recharge. The owners were very nice and friendly, ensuring we had everything we needed when we arrived and then leaving is to ourselves for the rest of our stay.

FANTASTIC WEEKEND GETAWAY for those just wanting to escape

  • 5 of 5

The cabin and view was OUTSTANDING. This cabin has amazing craftsmanship and every detail was thought of...........it was immaculately prepared and maintained. Karen and her husband met us at the cabin the first evening to show us around and help us get settled. An amazing place to set back and enjoy a beautiful sunrise each morning over the Ohio River. This cabin rivals any of the best we've visited in the Adirondacks!

The Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We had such a great time here. Everything is well-kept, the view is great, and the owners are friendly and helpful. We'll definitely be coming back!

I do want to share a couple of things to keep in mind. These are definitely NOT criticisms, just things I wish we had known in advance:

- The fridge is a dorm-room style mini-fridge/freezer combo, not a standard fridge. We brought too many cold groceries because we didn't notice that in the pictures.

- The coffee maker is a Keurig. I brought regular coffee. The owners provided some K-Cups, but if you're planning on drinking a lot of coffee, you might want to plan accordingly.

If you know those two things in advance, you're going to be pleasantly surprised by this great spot. We're definitely coming back!
