About the property

The Hawk's Nest is a newly-built, authentic, handcrafted log cabin with all the modern amenities. It sits on a bluff overlooking the Ohio River and serene, Kentucky farmland. Located five minutes from I-64 in Crawford County, Indiana, the cabin is easy to reach. The site is park-like, and although not totally secluded, guests enjoy plenty of privacy. The cabin contains a full bath and kitchen. It also has heat/ac, as well as television, fire-pit, outdoor gas grill, and private hot tub (additional $25-fee). Rent a cabin, relax, and watch the river boats float by!

Beautiful and peaceful!

  • 5 of 5

It was a cute little cozy cabin to stay in, with a beautiful view! House is furnished for staying in and relax with a Hot tub! Which was fantastic but if you want to see some sites, they have a binder with all the local attractions which was very helpful if you’re new to the area. All in all a 10 out of 10!

Perfect little getaway!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect Gatlinburg style cabin getaway without the long drive! We had everything we needed for a relaxing 2 night stay. The views of the river and Kentucky valley were better than advertised and with the picture window and sliding glass doors out to the deck gave us a perfect view thoughout the entire cabin without ever going outside (chilly December weekend.) A quick drive to the Harrison-Crawford forrest for a little hiking and a nice dinner at the Overlook resturant rounded out our stay.

Great weekend getaway

  • 5 of 5

The cabin was clean and exactly as pictured. It had a beautiful view of the Ohio River, and even though it wasn't exactly secluded, it felt like it was. The only complaint I have is the extra $25 to use the hot tub. I wish it would already be included in the price. All in all, we'd definitely like to come back and stay again!
