Serenity now

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 stayed at this property so that we could do a college visit at Purdue (about 30 minutes away) and go to a Purdue football game. We had a great weekend and enjoyed the peace and quiet of this rustic house on the Tippencanoe River. The outdoor deck was very nice as was the living area, which has great views of the rapidly flowing river below. It was refreshing to spend time with the family without a TV and we would like to revisit this location.

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean place. Furnished nicely.

Quiet and pretty! The section of the river is cool with little islands. There's an eagle nest right across the river. It flew around a bit and dove in the water to catch fish. Amazing sight!

Would love to go back some day.

Gorgeous relaxing location

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a relaxing location for our first ever girls' weekend and this place was definitely it! The house is gorgeous and has a view that can't be beat. We enjoyed the feeling of being out of the city while still keeping all the comforts of home. We saw deer almost every day we were there. The owner was very friendly and quick to respond.

Family Vacay!

  • 4 of 5

We were looking for a place to let the kids run loose and make unforgettable summer memories with family.. and that is exactly what we found here! The river was a total blast and perfect for playing, swimming, fishing, tubing. We loved the size of the home and the room it provided for 4 adults and 4 children under the age of 8! We hope to make it a yearly getaway!!! :) :)

Deeply Relaxing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

I spend at least one weekend here a year to "unplug." The home is beautiful and the setting is deeply relaxing. I turn off my phone - there's a landline for emergencies - and read, nap, wade in the water, make yummy meals. It's great! Perfect restorative weekend!
