About the property

Private Cabin in the woods with easy access to Fall Creek Falls State Park.

Perfect for a couples getaway, our Holly House is comfy no matter the weather on the plateau. Whether you choose to spend a day at Canopy Challenge, golfing at the park, heading to the stables, or a more meditative day at Isha Institute of Inner Sciences, we are located just 5 miles from the south entrance of Fall Creek Falls State Park, so that you can enjoy it all. Our 600 sq ft cabin, has a wide front porch that looks out over the pond, private fire pit, grill, and picnic area.

This cabin is equipped with all that you need for comfortable camping on The Plateau. No need to rough it and sleep on the ground and have to light a fire for your coffee in the morning.

Wake from a good night's sleep and put on the coffee maker. Take a stroll around the pond, and return to your cabin to enjoy your coffee sitting on the generous porch while enjoying the bird activity at the feeders and nest boxes. With our fully appointed kitchen, it's easy to make a nourishing breakfast made from the supplies that you purchased at our local mennonite community before going the short distance to Fall Creek Falls State Park.

FCF has wonderful hiking trails and viewing points to the waterfalls, as well as access to other activities: Horseback riding, Zip line, and golf. Pick up your lunch at one of their snack bars or eat something that you packed ahead to make a full day of your adventure.

Again, our front porch and pond are excellent amenities to take advantage of for the evening before having your dinner. Be sure to bring charcoal to cook up something sumptuous on the provided grill, and wood to whip up after dinner s'mores at your fire pit. The fireflies and chuck-wills-widows will serenade your eyes and ears as the coals burn down before you head back inside.

In an area as secluded and wooded as ours, TV is rare; but with our excellent fiber optic internet, you will have great options. Evening entertainment may include a movie or choose to binge watch something using this cabin's ROKU device. Bring your log ins and passwords for Netflix, AmazonVideo, HULU, DirectNOW, HBOGO or any other streaming services that you subscribe to, or choose from the free options on The ROKU channel. We also include a DVD player for your use.

A nice hot shower, and bed time it is again! Comfortable camping on The Plateau.

You will have the cabin to yourself. Bring your own firewood and charcoal to enjoy your private fire ring, grill and picnic table. You also have access to our pond for lazy contemplation. There are over 50 acres (mostly wooded) that you can explore. We have one .75mile walking trail.

Though we are not always on the property, we are easily reached via cell phone.

This is a very rural, heavily wooded area... perfect to unplug and unwind. The variety of wildlife with which we share the property is quite wide. There are birds, butterflies, bull frogs and "Bambi"s, as well as a wide variety of bugs. We are quite successful in keeping all of our wild neighbors out of our cabins; but when outdoors, we share the environment with them. Plan accordingly. :)

Any stay of less than 2 nights will incur a $25 + tax cleaning fee. Once you are booked, we will be sending a request for this fee.

Not safe to stay with children

  • 1 of 5

Lawn was overgrown, we all got bitten by ticks and ants were everywhere. The charcoal grill was not cleaned and ready for use. Pullout out bed was so worn out, that we had to take turns to sleep in it and with the air conditioner so loud we were up most of the night. With the detail household rules (had to sign 2 weeks prior arrival) it made you wonder why we were charged the cleaning fee if basically they wanted us to leave the cabin in the same position as when we checked in minus sheets and pillows removed from the bed. There was also an information where guests can found cleaning supplies.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that our cabin did not satisfy your desired vacation experience with your grandchildren. To clarify for others that may like to stay with us in the future, we would like to address these concerns. The Piney Creek Cabins property consists of 53 acres of National Wildlife Federation Certified Wildlife Habitat. Our woodland is a beautiful combination of holly, mountain laurel, hemlock, dogwood and oak varieties. The very sandy soil is not favorable to the growth of the water loving grasses that one would find in a subdivision, but does still require strong stands of native grasses and wildflowers to inhibit soil erosion. Though we keep the areas around the fire pits, picnic tables, bird feeding stations and path around the pond area cleared; the majority of the remaining open areas are left as clearings, not lawns at all. As stated in the listing, we are quite successful at keeping the wildlife out of our cabins; but when one is outside, proper precautions need to be made. We suggest using the cabin's spacious porch for relaxation with minimal insect interaction. If larger "playing" area is required for energetic children, we are very conveniently located just 5 miles from Fall Creek Falls State Park which boasts wonderful playgrounds, as well as pool and beach areas. Although sleeper sofas are inherently less comfortable than beds, and window air-conditioners louder than central air; we are looking into improving the sleeping experience of the guests in this cabin. Cleaning supplies are provided for guest use in maintaining cabin cleanliness to the level that the guest desires during their stay. No cleaning fees are charged unless the stay is only one night.

Everything you could think of was in the cabin. Even with the electric out for almost 7 hours, we enjoyed our stay.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your patience with that Roberta! It was wonderful that you were willing and able to take advantage of the outdoor cooking facilities. ;) As we are sure you noticed, we have an abundance of wildlife here on our beautiful property. We were told today by the repair men, that we have one less squirrel.... seems she took a liking to the wiring at the transformer over the weekend. :'( Hope you come back to visit again!
