Area attractions are plentiful, but the peace and quiet on the front porch is worth just staying in!

For those who just can't let go, a strong VERIZON only CELL phone signal inside the cabin and internet DSL is available (ask for code). Oh, yes w/d and dishwasher no sweat! Once you've experienced this get-away, you'll want to come back again and again. A truly one of a kind wonderful cabin whose owners are lovingly sharing their experience with you

“Amazing Retreat”

Reviewed 11 Nov 2016

This space was perfect for the women's getaway. There were 10 of us and we were comfortable. This is a close drive from Louisville, close to hiking and French Lick for those that are interested, but far enough away to feel like you are in the middle of nowhere! Debbie and her husband were attentive to everything we needed. I plan to go back with my 6 siblings for a family getaway.

What a beautiful cabin. Exceptionally clean and well stocked. Our whole family loved the porches. Wonderful comfortable beds and plenty of room for all 13 of us. Debbie and Butch are super friendly and accommodating. We had a wonderful time and would recommend the cabin to anyone.

“Best Cabin for Family Vacation”

Reviewed 11 Aug 2015

This cabin is perfect for several families. We had 3 couples and 3 children. Plenty of room for everyone to have their own bedroom and private area. The front & back porches are so peaceful. The owner was very accommodating to answer questions, suggest things to do in the area and the cabin is stocked with anything you would need for your stay. The cabin is very clean, well maintained and decorated very tastefully. The only thing I would change is to stay longer....best vacation with our daughters, son in laws and grandchildren!!! Thanks Debbie and Butch & for Emma the greeter upon our arrival!! Such a nice touch to welcome us.

“wonderful Cabin”

Reviewed 2 Jun 2015

We had a family reunion here for the weekend and it was wonderful The kitchen is well stocked The beds are very comfortable There was a rain that come in but the large screened in back porch and the large front porch was big enough to let us stay and out and enjoy the weather I have stayed in a lot of Time Shares and Vacation homes but this one outshines them by far . I would highly recommend it for any and all get togethers.

We loved the location, close to Patoka. The beds were comfortable. The kitchen very well stocked. The porches cozy and the backyard fire pit a real bonus. And the cabin was very clean.

“Excellent place for a retreat”

Reviewed 9 Sep 2014

My business partner and I searched several places to hold our women's retreats and we were delighted when we found The Wise Old Owl cabin. The accommodations were just what we needed with enough space for all of our ladies to feel at home. The owners have thought of everything! So no worries if you forget something at home. It is a peaceful and serene place, a great get away from the hustle and bustle of every day life. It is clean and well taken care of. I highly suggest this place! Debbie is great to work with as well and has always made us feel like we are valued and important guests in her home!

“Amazing, Simply Amazing!”

Reviewed 10 Jun 2014

My men's group and I rented this beautiful cabin to get away from it all for a weekend. What we found is that the pictures in no way do this beautiful cabin justice. The area is very attractive to the eye, and the amenities provided by the cabin are second to none. With the cabin being less than 2 miles from Patoka Lake and a short 15 minute drive to French Lick, this was the perfect place for us to retreat to. Pros: location, amenities, cleanliness, owners easy to work with, and scenic views. Cons: none I would recommend this location to anyone and we look forward to coming back and staying again in the future. Thank you for allowing us to stay!

“Absolutely perfect.”

Reviewed 3 Apr 2014

We were all very happy and impressed with the quality of the cabin and everything included. The furniture was all very comfortable and plenty of it for the eleven of us to totally enjoy our stay. My husband and I rented your cabin so we could enjoy spring break with our kids and grandkids. The children are all in grade school and were happy to run, explore and play in the woods and creek. Your 2 large grills and completely equipped kitchen was great. We cooked all our meals there during our stay and had a couple great campfires in the evenings. We definitely hope to return again for another relaxing and enjoyable vacation. I have posted several photos of your beautiful cabin on social media and have recommended it to friends. Thanks again Debbie and Butch for opening your cabin to our family. We were so pleased with everything, you have been a pleasure to work with.
