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 Waveland

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.

Wonderful stay and great location.

  • 4 of 5

Really love the porch swing as well as the flexibility for sleeping arrangements. The only drawback is the size of the showers. Owners could be easily reached and were responsive to our needs.

Cozy cabin with great access to parks

  • 4 of 5

Friends and I very much enjoyed our stay in this cabin conveniently located near Shades State Park. The accommodations were spacious yet cozy and private. The owners were helpful during our stay. And after our stay they promptly shipped a raincoat that had been left behind. I would gladly rent this cabin again!

Secluded cabin with great park access

  • 4 of 5

Sugar Creek Retreat provides a cozy get-away with privacy and easy access to a wonderful nature preserve and state park. We couldn't have chosen a better location for our vacation/girl friend reunion! The cabin is spacious and comfortable; the grounds are peaceful and secluded. I would rent this property again.

Poor to Okay

  • 3 of 5

Hi Gabe! Unfortunately were less than happy with our stay at the cabin. Like at the farmhouse, we had to wash linens as they had an odor. We are almost positive that the cleaning staff did not wash linens. They were actually at each house for no more than 30 minutes. I found a medication holder (Mon-Sun style) full of medications present in the upstairs bathroom upon arrival to the cabin. It was blatantly visible on the sink, and not hidden, so I'm not sure how the cleaning staff missed this. The light did not work in the downstairs bathroom the entire stay. We tried flipping the breaker several times and the changing the lightbulb, with no success. This left one bathroom basically that was available for wedding preparation for 9 girls, which was not ideal. I'm thinking there may be a yellow jacket nest in the cabin. At one point we counted upwards of 15 in the upstairs bedroom, but they were throughout the house. Thankfully they were less present at nighttime. We asked the cleaning staff, who suggested trying bee spray, but we did not have any available. I feel that you were very helpful and available prior to our stay, but during the actual stay we had a lot of problems. I don't think these problems would have been so troublesome if they hadn't been present during our wedding weekend. Because you list your properties as suitable for weddings, I feel that we got the short end of the stick. Nonetheless we made the best of our weekend and ultimately had a good time. I hope you do not take offense to my reviews, just trying to get these things fixed. We would like to come back and stay someday once these problems are resolved.

Best,

Lindsey

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.

Additional pricing information

Cleaning Fee £74.72
Damage Deposit £74.72

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!!
