About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 7

For a true log cabin experience, visit Creekside Cabin! Our cabin is located 1.5 miles from the Patoka Lake State Park entrance. There is a 2018 Patoka Lake State Park Pass @ the cabin for you to use during your stay @ Creekside. Inside the park, there is a public beach, boat ramps, marinas, several walking, hiking, and biking trails, a nature center, and a large campground. There is also a winery and restaurants nearby.

3150 Chigger Ridge Road, Birdseye, IN.

If you haven't been to Patoka Lake before, you must take advantage of your time in the area! You can go have fun in the 28,000 acres of Patoka Lake State Park, which includes 8800 acres of Patoka Lake water. There are many walking, hiking, and biking trails, a beach, a large campground, and a nature center. You can rent a boat at 1 of the marinas or use your own boat to explore and/or fish the gorgeous water Patoka Lake has to offer.

One of the best features of this cabin is that is has a screened-in back porch with a ceiling fan, and a deck that overlooks a creek within several wooded acres, and a separate deck that has 4 bar stools behind a piece of walnut live edge that face the creek and wooded acreage! You will find a nice sense of peace and solitude right here! Cozy up on the patio furniture on the back porch, and enjoy the peace and quite! Right off the screened-in porch, there is a charcoal grill for your use. There is also a fire pit to use for those nice evenings when you want to be outdoors.

There is also a gravel drive at the top of the hill from the cabin. This drive can be used for vehicle or boat parking.

The cabin has 1 bedroom on the main floor with a queen sized bed, and its own full bathroom with a walk-in shower. It has a sleeping loft with 1 queen bed and 1 twin bed, a 2nd full bathroom with a tub/shower combo on the main floor, a living room with a 40" flat screen TV, a couch that is also a queen sized sofa/pull out bed, kitchen with a 4 burner electric stove and refrigerator. There is a toaster, coffee maker, microwave, and several other kitchen necessities you may need. There are also games, coloring books, hunting encyclopedias, books, puzzles, and magazines for you to enjoy if you just want some time to relax at the cabin!

West Baden/French Lick is 15 miles. There you can enjoy shopping, the casino, train museum, in door water park, winery, go-kart track, and a movie theatre with stadium seating. Holiday World (Santa Claus, IN) is 40 miles away, and Paoli Peaks is 25 miles away.

Just a note that there is poor cell phone signal @ the cabin, which we appreciate. : )

We have another 1 bedroom, 1 bathroom cabin (sleeps 1-4) located just under 1/2 mile away. This is a perfect location in case you are traveling with a larger group, and you need more space, yet want to be close to 1 another. It will be available on Friday, July 13th. It's listing #1364296.

Loved It!

  • 5 of 5

Our small group had a great time staying at Creekside. The owners were wonderful and had everything we could have asked for, even with torrential rains and flooding that occurred the night before and morning of our arrival. Short of a few puddles in the driveway our cabin was spotless and extremely comfortable.

This is an excellent location for all the things that French Lick Resort and Patoka Lake has to offer. You can enjoy all the amenities around there then escape to the quiet and beautiful solitude of Creekside. We are already planning another (and longer) stay!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much! The amount of rain we received was definitely unexpected. Glad it didn't delay your travel plans, and you all enjoyed your night away!

Peaceful, convenient, top notch!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our weekend get away to the Creekside Cabin so very much. The cabin is situated in a wooded area and while you can see the neighboring houses, it was a very peaceful and quiet spot to enjoy a weekend get away. The cabin was top notch, very clean and well kept, with an ample supply of towels, bedding, and kitchen appliances. Our hosts even left us fresh baked bread! There are several porches to choose from where we enjoyed drinking our morning coffee and eating our evening meals.

With Patoka Lake State Park only a 5 minute drive away, we enjoyed an afternoon at the beach plus fishing, kayaking, and even renting a pontoon boat at the marina. We would highly recommend this rental cabin.

Peaceful setting

  • 5 of 5

Nice accommodations and very clean. Owner provided everything including charcoal. The back porch is screened in and was great on the somewhat cooler evenings in July. The decks below the back porch were shaded and very comfortable in the morning. Extremely peaceful setting and much enjoyed.

Very quiet and peaceful. Very nice, large screened-in deck with furnishings. Even nicer lower deck with 2 sets of table/chairs. Property is nestled in the trees, and the birds sing all day long! Amy and Tommy provide everything you could possibly need. Even the charcoal for the grill. My husband and I enjoyed an awesome four nights, and are hoping to get back soon! Highly recommend the Pub N Grub restaurant.
