About Gabe Fauquher

We have spent the past year or so building a small, cozy space for wellness, yoga and recreation in the wilderness of western Indiana. My husband and I purchased the log cabin surrounded by 6000 acres of gorgeous old growth forest, rivers, canyons, and pure silence and serenity. Our vision was to combine my work as a Life Change Consultant and Yoga Instructor with his work as a Naturopathic Doctor specializing in nutrition and wild plants.

Gabe Fauquher purchased this cabin in 2015

Why Gabe Fauquher chose Indiana

This property truly is located against one of the most unique backdrops in Indiana. The location is amazing and has been called the darkest place in Indiana, which makes for wonderful stargazing opportunities. It's perfect for camp outs, retreats, weddings or romance. It has been called the most unusual place in Indiana due to the many cliff formations in Pine Hills Nature Preserve. The cabin itself is very cozy and accommodating and filled with locally sourced furniture. The owner has built the log furniture and the stair rails with cedar logs from the property and all the other furniture has been made by local craftsmen from Rockville, IN. The 24x24 patio is literally 5 feet from The Pine Hills Preserve and deer frequent the property daily. The cabin also has a very comfy loft that looks out through the the vaulted ceiling windows and provides a wonderful place kids games or reading or just watching the sun go down.

What makes this cabin unique

The location of this cabin is remarkable. It is surrounded by protected ground on 3 sides and sits against some of the oldest trees in Indiana. It's uniqueness lies within its stillness.

This log cabin is such an amazing place!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third year renting this log cabin for my family vacation. My family loves this cabin and the surrounding forest. We just got back and they are already talking about next year and renting it for a longer stay. It's clean, well maintained and the owners are wonderful people. Turkey Run and Shades State Park offer so much to do, but we also just like hanging out at the cabin and around the fit pit. I tell everyone about this property that I stumbled upon looking for something to rent for a weekend stay. It's amazing and we really enjoy it and we will be definitely be back!

Cozy log cabin retreat

  • 4 of 5

The cabin was exactly as described. The location is wonderful right near state parks and hiking trails. We ran into a couple of small glitches, but the owner responded promptly to our needs and quickly remedied the situation. We will be returning.

One of a kind resort!

  • 5 of 5

My family rented the Log Cabin and the Farmhouse Cottage for our annual family vacation. The property and houses were amazing! We had zero complaints and the owners were very responsive and kind. If you are looking for a getaway with friends and family the Sugar Creek Resort is a must.

Great Cabin Getaway

  • 5 of 5

We found a little piece of heaven in west central Indiana. We were looking for a central location for a family get together with our two daughters and their husbands. The cabin is located right across from Shades State Park and right beside Pine Hills Nature Preserve. It was an ideal place to stay with comfortable accommodations. We were within driving distance of Turkey Run State Park but found that Shades met all our hiking needs and only left the area to canoe through Turkey Run. The cabin had everything we needed and we would stay again. I would recommend this cabin and location to anyone who wants to get away and leave the work world behind for a few days. Thank you so much for providing a great place to build memories with our family. Take care.

Wonderful cabin in perfect location for hiking, biking, canoeing, you name it

  • 5 of 5

We had an active vacation - we hiked Turkey Run and Shades State Park multiple times, bike the curvy blacktop and gravel at Shades, and so much more using this Sugar Creek Retreat as our base camp. Canoeing outfitters are 3 mins away, the best go karts are 20 mins away, etc. The grounds are fantastic, with everything you could need. Large patio with gas grill and plenty of seating, a great firepit with seating, wrap around porch with swing and plenty of area to hang out. Even a well-pump hose to wash off the sand and dust from our bikes, shoes, etc.

Great kitchen and eating area, but the kids love the loft/bunk/whatever bedroom and went crazy chatting after the firepit and settling to sleep.

This would be a great place for peace and quiet if you aren't looking for anything active. Great big windows for watching wildlife.

The owners are very responsive, too. We will be back.

Refundable Damage Deposit £75.28
Tax Rate 10.0%

Check in is at 3 pm and checkout is at 11:00 am. If your payment is processed through homeaway or you booked online, the payment processing center will hold your damage deposit for 7 days even if there is no damage. We don't hold it. (It was the shortest amount of time we could select). The damage protection is supposed to be an option when booking. We thought it would be good if someone was booking for a large group and didn't know everyone who would be coming or wouldn't be able to keep track of everyone. If the site requires you to select it and you don't need it, just let us know and we can remove. The taxes are listed at 10% which includes the Montgomery County Inn keepers tax.If you need propane for the grill and have to replace it send us a message and we'll refund the cost. We've had to add a pet fee recently due to the amount of time its taking to clean the dog hair thoroughly. It's just a flat rate and is not per dog or based on weight so please know your poochies are always welcome!!

Owner's Cancellation Policy

  • 50% refund for cancellations more than 14 days before check-in date.
