Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: Owners Debbie and Butch 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 and families. We work very hard to have everything just right when groups arrive, just like we would want it for our own family.

Why the Owner Chose Eckerty, IN, USA:
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, Holiday World are all within short driving distance from our cabin. Louisville is approx one hours drive.

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, 27 miles to Holiday World, 22 miles to Paoli Peaks Ski Resort and approx one hours drive to Louisville.
