French Lick cottage description

Harrison Spring Cabin - Overlooking the Blue River and Harrison Spring - Cozy enough for two, but large enough to sleep four comfortably. The Harrison Spring Cabin overlooks where the spring empties into the Blue River. Harrison Spring is one of the largest springs east of the Mississippi River and is on the National Natural Landmark List. The cabin is on stilts and affords a nice view of the Blue River and the spring. The spring is always 54 degrees and this really moderates the temperature around the cabin. A large wrap around porch offers extended river views and is a relaxing place for friends and guests to gather. An interior family room offers additional gathering opportunities.

The cabin is furnished in a river camp atmosphere and features a full bathroom with shower. There are two bedrooms and both bedrooms have a double bed. The Cabin is air conditioned and heated.


Convenient access to the Blue River: The Blue River is well known for canoeing, fishing, and abundant wildlife. Much of the lower stretch of the river is bordered by Harrison Crawford State Forest and O'Bannon Woods State Park. The property is conveniently located on the river so that you can arrange a variety of trips using public access points up and downstream.
