Overview

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!

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect Gatlinburg style cabin getaway without the long drive! We had everything we needed for a relaxing 2 night stay. The views of the river and Kentucky valley were better than advertised and with the picture window and sliding glass doors out to the deck gave us a perfect view thoughout the entire cabin without ever going outside (chilly December weekend.) A quick drive to the Harrison-Crawford forrest for a little hiking and a nice dinner at the Overlook resturant rounded out our stay.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and exactly as pictured. It had a beautiful view of the Ohio River, and even though it wasn't exactly secluded, it felt like it was. The only complaint I have is the extra $25 to use the hot tub. I wish it would already be included in the price. All in all, we'd definitely like to come back and stay again!

just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

I think we were the first Europeans to stay in the cabin. It was a very good choice. Great hosts and a well planned fully equipped cabin overlooking the Ohio river. The hot tub was used every day too. We went to French Lick and Tell city(Poors House pub and grill). Weather good and very relaxing. No problems, would easily stay again if we were in the area.
