                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2007

                  About the owner: Owners purchased this cabin as their retirement home. Still a few years away from retirement, we decided to rent it and share the peaceful surroundings with nice guests.

                  Why the Owner Chose French Lick:
                  17 acres of peacefulness, lots of birds and wildlife. Stress relief from hectic everyday life---our cabin allows you to relax and enjoy each other and nature. French Lick, West Baden, Patoka Lake, Paoli Peaks, Marengo Cave, Blue River, are all within short driving distance from our cabin.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Cabin:
                  Large enough for families or groups up to 20--everyone has a bed! Yet small enough for just 2 to 4 people and still seem nice and cozy. Just ask our honeymoon couples! Nature all around, firepit in the evenings--hot tub--peaceful slumber! Only 3 miles from the entrance to Patoka Lake Park.
