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!

Wonderful little place to relax and get away from it all. Great view from deck. The fire pit was a nice touch. We will definitely be back!

My husband and I stayed here for an anniversary getaway. The views were beautiful. The cabin adorable and just as pictured. Loved the private hot tub! The owners were accommodating and friendly. We will come back.

Beautiful cabin, the perfect place to relax.

Great place to relax & enjoy the view. Coffee on the deck each morning & evening watching the boats on the river & birds in the sky was the perfect place for me to rest & unwind. Enjoyed it very much. Wendy King

Perfect Couple's Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our weekend stay here! Very cute, clean, and quaint. The view was gorgeous, and the hot tub was a great bonus! Very clean and well kept. The owners were so nice and friendly. The cabin was a perfect place for a couple's weekend getaway for us, and close enough to Louisville to go for a night out! We loved and appreciated the weekend so much!

This cabin is amazing!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent stay at this cabin. The owners are friendly and helpful. The cabin is stocked with everything you need. It is efficient, clean and comfortable. The love seat recliner is probably the most comfortable furniture we have ever had in a vacation property. The deck is a perk and we enjoyed watching the river traffic from a wonderful viewpoint. The view down and across the river is very beautiful and soothing. Good bed and good shower, too! Can't say enough positive about our time at this great space to just relax and be quiet. We hope to go back in another season and experience the beauty some more.

Cabin was gorgeous, better than the description. Very peaceful.

  • 5 of 5

It was such a peaceful retreat. We had everything we needed to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery. I would absolutely stay again! Karen met us at the cabin when we arrived and went over everything with us and gave us the key. She was very nice and very helpful. I would definitely recommend their cabin for anyone who is looking to unplug from the hustle and bustle and just relax and slow down. Thanks Karen and Garry we hope to visit again!
