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
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.
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 was a great spot for the 6 of us to relax after spending our 2 days at the Covered Bridge Festival. The cabin had all that we needed to make a great stay.
The cabin was great for our getaway. The only real suggestion I have is to put window coverings on the bedroom windows. The showers were somewhat snug to use but Gabe did the best with what room was available. We loved our stay, the location, and the hospitality from the owners!! We have rented several vacation homes and none have been as friendly as these owners! We enjoyed our stay and owners so much, the minute we left and got signal I was making reservations for next year!! Thanks again for everything Gabe!!!
Our first impression was that the cabin looked really nice. Once inside, it was obviously dirty. The frig needed wiped down ( filthy), the kitchen counter had mouse feces on it, the kitchen towels needed replaced. The floors of the cabin had dead bugs & cobwebs every where, they looked like they had not been swept at all. The upstairs bedroom bed pillows had no pillow cases on them.
All 7 of us thought the cabin needed a really good cleaning!
We absolutely loved our weekend at your cabin! We had everything we needed and the accommodations were perfect for our family- 3 couples, 2 1/2 year old grandson and the grand- dogs! The firepit was great and the proximity of the parks was wonderful! Highly recommend!
Beautiful cabin lots of room and space . We enjoyed our peaceful stay alot and look forward to renting again. The only complaint they was the shower was small, there were some rounder guys that didn't have much room, but they made do with it and it wouldn't stop them from renting again. Thanks again and look forward to seeing you soon
My fiancé, I and our friends absolutely loved our weekend here. The state park was so close and the hiking views were breathtaking, we even ended up taking our engagement pictures there. The home is so unique and awesome! We already cannot wait to plan another trip there.
Attractions include clements canoe livery less than 3 minutes away that provides tours on the sugar creek river, rockville covered bridge festival which has more covered bridges than anywhere else in the country, shades sp, turkey run sp, pine hills np (the most unusual place in in) and literally hundreds of miles of hiking trails to experience what true nature is supposed to be.

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!!
