Sunrise Cove owners Rich and Dawn have worked to build a retreat that you won't want to leave (they hate to leave too). They've included features they've enjoyed in vacation rentals and resorts in which they've stayed. The double shower was inspired by a cabin at Indiana's Lake Monroe. The gaming area is similar to one in a chalet in Gatlinburg. And watching the sun rise on the back porch reminds them of their stays in National Park Lodges in the Western U.S. Rich works for an engineering company, Dawn is a middle-school math teacher. They and their two kids get away to Sunrise Cove every chance they can.
Rich purchased this Cabin in 2009
Why Rich chose English
We searched for a year for the right location to build Sunrise Cove. We wanted a view of Patoka Lake, which we enjoy early fall through late spring, and we wanted the property to be adjacent to the government land that surrounds the water itself -- essentially giving us a 26,000 acre backyard. We also wanted quick access to the many amenities in French Lick, while also being very easy to get to from Interstate 64. And most importantly, with two kids and a busy state highway running past our back yard at home, we wanted somewhere QUIET. We found it. :)

100% refund if canceled at least 14 days before arrival date. 50% refund if canceled at least 7 days before arrival date.
This property is perfect for a quiet couples retreat. We loved the cabin and the hot tub was so nice after a day of hiking. It has so many amenities! We highly recommend filling the bird feeder and humming bird feeder. Supplies are in the front closet! We also enjoyed the casino, distillery/winery and all of the nearby nature areas. Thanks for an awesome stay!! We needed it!
Great hospitality! Very welcoming. Everything was clean, well kept and comfortable. Very peaceful place away from everything.
Just As Promised.
Wife and I were very pleased. Very secluded, quite, clean, well decorated not to mention the master shower. Just as promised. Will be returning this fall as the leaves begin to change. Awesome cabin and property. Also would like to mention that my wife and I went to “Crazy Horse Ranch & Lodge” for supper where we had the best ribeye dinner and phenomenal service. Great stop when in French Lick!! See ya shortly.
Privacy and Wooded
Recommended for GPS users: put Sulpher IN instead of English!!!!! Trust me it'll save you time and confusion.
If you love the cabin feel and being surrounded by trees and wildlife this is the place for you! Though it is on a lake there is no easy way to get to it so I highly suggest if you are trying to canoe use a ramp down the road. There is a sign for a lake trail but my husband and I didn't see a clear path.
Here are the negatives: first off there was takeout and leftover food in the refrigerator which I think is discussing being a guest. Place needs to be spayed for bugs because there were run-ins with several (inside). Some landscaping would make for an easier entrance for sure and it would make it more appealing to the eye. Dirty laundry was left in the washer when we arrived. Overall we had a good experience being from the city however we won't be back, not because of the cabin issues its just there isn't much to do at all around there especially on weekdays since everything fun like renting a canoe is only open on weekends. Also, plan on not drinking much at the casino because there's no option for ride shares.
Excellent stay,and accommodations,beautiful cabin,and surroundings
Enjoyed our time there
"Away from it all" and enjoyed every minute
What a neat cabin to stay in. Our three active boys enjoyed the outside life (hiking, making camp fires, exploring, fishing, chilling in the hot tub) and also liked the inside activities as well (pool table, ping pong, and games provided).
We hiked to the lake several times, which keeps you in shape when you climb back up the hill. We appreciated how the owners maintained the home and the property. You can tell that they cared a great deal about their rental cabin. Everything was clean and was well stocked with most essential items. For us living in a city, it was certainly a pleasure to be able to look up at the night sky and see plenty of stars. We will be back again.
