What makes this cabin unique

The Hoot Owl Cabin has the rustic look our guests enjoy, but all the modern amenities such as Internet, Phone, Cable Service, and comforts of home. Hoot Owl Cabin can be used for a Ladies Weekend relaxing the in the hot tub, sitting by a camp fire visiting with family or friends, or a family getaway. With all the custom pieces and antiques in the cabin, there were no details left out. This is not your average rental and guests have left amazed with its beauty. If you sit outside late enough, you will possibly hear the local critters...coyotes, occasional fox, and possibly an owl.

Charming, clean & stocked

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was even better than expected, had all the amenities listed and then some. Location worked perfect for our stay - short distance to Bloomington and Nashville for some adventuring and secluded enough from neighbors to relax and enjoy some privacy and the natural surroundings. Check-in / check-out process couldn't have been easier. Loved our stay!

Wonderful pretty cabin in a noisy neighborhood

  • 4 of 5

This is a great cabin that is well maintained by an obviously caring owner. It was very well stocked and the pool table, fire pit, and hot tub were all a big hit with the grandchildren (ages 7 to 12). This is a great place for couples or groups who want to have easy access to Bloomington, Nashville, or Brown County State Park. It would also be a great place for groups who just want to hang-out and enjoy the cabin’s many amenities. However, it’s not a good place to quietly commune with nature. The setting is more suburban than rural and a noisy suburb at that. Every morning we woke to the sounds of barking dogs (apparently there is a nearby kennel), traffic, and at least one circular saw. I had hoped to go for an evening stroll, but the road the cabin is on and the way people drive on it made that pleasure impossible. Nevertheless, depending on what you want in a cabin this could be fantastic.

Owner's Response: I'm very sorry about the dogs. They are a neighbor that is over 300 feet away. The dogs can be very loud at times, but I have no control over them. The nearest house is 250 feet across the street. This is definitely not suburb in my book and if you had an opportunity to be outside at night you would have heard everything from Tree frogs/toads croaking, coyotes howling from several ridges, and owls hooting away...and on a clear night the stars are great. We are very up front with people in our listing that there is a driveway adjacent to the cabin which is traveled daily. I'm sorry you didn't get to take advantage of all the wonderful places nearby to hike...Yellowwood park is 7 minutes away and Griffy Lake is 10 minutes away with several great hiking trails. We have several guests that stay that take hikes up and down Brummetts Creek Rd. The traffic is heavier in the summer time. Thank you for taking such good care of our cabin.

Stayed there the first was 4 yrs ago as my daughter was going to IU Optometry School .

  • 2 of 5

We returned for another stay for my daughters graduation as a doctor at IU. After I left And returned 350 miles back home I read e mail. Apparently we were on camera as we were getting scolded for having company.. Also accused of stealing a pool ball which I'm sure was stuck in the table. The landlord should either text so we could see any concerns or stopped in as she lives behind the house. It's unfortunate because we had a great feeling when we left the premises. We return home to find complaints from landlord and knowing we are being watched on camera.. we left the place immaculate and didn't use the hot tub or the firewood because of the inclement weather. I've never left a poor review anywhere, but had to do this one.

Owner's Response: The rules are clear. If you are going to have non-overnight guests, then you are to let us know. The one absolutely unacceptable violation was the dog you had on the premise, and you allowed it in and my cabin. The rules are clear on dogs allowed! And we have checked the pool table...still no ball. The ball was there prior to you and your unannounced guests. I would have called you but I was out of town and did not have your info with me. You knew the pet rule and knew I had camera, so your in the wrong. I should have charged you a pet cleaning fee and didn't. Glad you will not be back.

Great property inside and out

  • 5 of 5

Hoot Owl is exactly as pictured on this site. Well maintained and nicely decorated. The upstairs master suite and bathroom are large and comfy. The two downstairs bedrooms are a nice size too. The living dining kitchen area is ample for four, but on the cozy/small size. The kitchen is very well appointed. We cooked two large meals and had everything we needed. Wifi works on the large back deck, which is a real plus. And the hot tub is great, very clean. The cabin is not secluded, but they've done a nice job with privacy fencing around the deck and hot tub. They provide wood for the fire pit. Really enjoyed our stay and will come back. Julie replies to inquiries quickly and answered all my questions.

The cabin was nice, very big. Liked the pool table. This is a great place for a family. The neighbors were noisy. They were sawing metal or something. Lot of barking dogs. Nashville is close for shopping. And Brown County for hiking.

Owner's Response: Unfortunately, the neighbor's across the street have doubled their number of dogs and they are loud. Normally, they can't be heard in the cabin. There is a neighbor building a house and we have no control of that noise. Best of luck in the future with other rentals.
