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.

Perfect Getaway

  • 5 of 5

Stayed on property to celebrate high school graduation with 12 young men. The house and property were perfect, we were able to set up tents, Enos, corn hole, can jam, and spike ball. There was enough room for everyone. The patio area with 2 tables and benches were perfect for meals. The kitchen table was used frequently for games. The fire pit out back was great every evening, along with flashlight tag all around the property. It's a quick walk to both Shades and the Nature Preserve. The cross country runners loved the trails for training. The pass into the parks was handy and the boys played Ultimate Frisbee in the parks at dusk. We took advantage of the nearby Indiana Zip Lines - a must do - the owners are awesome and friendly. We also enjoyed the nearby kayaking and canoeing. It is the perfect place to be active and relax when you want to. The house itself is clean and well stocked kitchen. One of the bedrooms has 4 bunk beds perfect for kids. Highly recommend this place for nature lovers and families. The owners of the cabin were easy to reach and very accommodating, and answered all our questions.

Wonderful getaway spot

  • 5 of 5

Seven of the women in my family just returned from our 3 days at Sugar Creek Retreat. We had a wonderful time. We enjoyed the grill, fire pit, A/C, hiking, canoeing, indoor plumbing, and more. We usually camp but decided to treat ourselves to a roof this year. The setting is peaceful, the furnishings comfortable, and the house clean. We are already talking about next year.

A Birding and Hiking Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Had a great stay. This log cabin home was clean, neat and well maintained. There are days and days of scenic hikes possible next to the property in the Shades State Park and the Pine Hills Natyre Preserve as well as in nearby Turkey Run State Park. The woods around the property was alive with birds including wild turkeys. A fun stay!

Really beautiful space and absolutely perfect for bringing out group together, thank you so much!

  • 5 of 5

We just checked out and are so happy with the stay, thank you for providing such a wonderful place! We left $30 for the firewood used on the side of the cabin! Please let us know if anything isn't up to standards, we made sure to do a deep clean of the cabin before we left anyway!! Thank you again for a wonderful weekend and please let me know at 618.550.8332 if you have any questions, comments, or concerns!

Perfect place to wind down!

  • 4 of 5

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.

A really nice secluded getaway!

  • 5 of 5

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!!!

Refundable Damage Deposit £77.3

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

100% refund for cancellations more than 30 days before check-in date.
