About Deborah Porter
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 wooded 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.
Deborah Porter purchased this Cabin in 2007

17 acres of wooded peacefulness, lots of birds and wildlife. Borders the Hoosier National Forest.

Family weekend get-a-way
We stayed at Wise Old Owl cabin for a family weekend get-a-way. The cabin is very cute and cozy and well taken care of. Thanks to Debbie and Butch for a great vacation!!
Perfect cabin for a small wedding. Perfect location and very clean. The decor is perfect for a cabin. Looking forward to going back again.
Amazing place to stay!
Amazing cabin! Debbie has thought of everything to make your stay a great one. It really is like home away from home. Very clean. Great place for a retreat or family reunion. I would recommend this cabin over and over again.
Our stay here was perfect and everything we could need was provided by the owners, beautiful!!
The setting for The Wise Old Owl cabin looks like it is from a movie. Wooded, scenic, private, quaint, and that’s just the outside; inside there is a lovely home filled with cozy decorations and so much character. There was never a moment where we didn’t have exactly what we needed or wanted. We would stay here again in a heartbeat and hopefully next time for a week not just a weekend.
So blessed to have found the Wise Old Owl Cabin. A big thank you to Debbie and Butch for opening up their home. We used the cabin for a family vacation. It is warm and inviting as soon as you enter. Debbie takes great care in making sure her guests are very well provided for. Lydia greeted us upon arrival and made sure we were comfortable with the mechanics of the house (fireplace, thermostat, alarm, etc). She left us some fresh eggs and a loaf of delicious bread. The kitchen is supplied with anything a person uses to cook with as if they were in their own home. Plenty of towels, washcloths, blankets. Games, toys, some DVD's. My granddaughter fell in love with the stuffed animals on the beds downstairs. The little ones enjoyed the soaking tub [so did some of the adults].
The outside is beautifully landscaped. You can take a walk, put out food for the birds and just watch them flock in or just hang on the porch and soak in the peace.
The Wise Old Owl is unique in the ability to be a romantic get away for a couple or accommodate a family just as easy.
Rustic and relaxing with country charm
A perfect location for our family gathering. Front porch perfect for morning coffee. Used kitchen table and back porch table for cards and visiting. Fire pit was perfect with logs , chairs, and s’more sticks. Able to see stars on clear night. Listened to coyotes at night and many birds. Close enough to places for day trips. Great communication with hosts.
