One bedroom w/ loft family cabin located on 16 wooded acres in NW Brown County. Great for a family and weekend getaways!
Very secluded, peaceful -- beautiful in all seasons. Big front porch and the property is full of wildlife.
I've owned this cabin for 20 years and regularly use it with my kids and my friends. And thus -- a family cabin. What you are getting is a second home established for native comfort. Nice beds, large working kitchen with most modern conveniences -- convection oven/stove, microwave, fridge (and stocked with basics that we use ourselves and you are also welcome to use), good cookware, dishwasher (that so-kountry moveable type), coffee maker, electric skillet, three (count 'em) Weber grills, random working spices, etc. I stay at rental homes myself from time to time -- I hate dealing with burned-up teflon skillets and dull knives. That won't be your issue -- I promise.
I adore music and if you do to, it's a fun experience. I have a new computer running itunes connected to the stereo. And in itunes I have my music collection -- 36,000 songs for you to enjoy. I usually just play it on random -- it's a fun, permanent radio station. I also have about 300 LP records, from my 'youth'. There are two guitars, strung, played and maintained. A capo, extra strings, picks, etc. If you play, enjoy these.
There's a wood-burning stove which is wonderful to run during the cold months. Likely required in the Dec/Jan. There's a large, covered front porch, full of seating options. A great place to sit and gaze into the quiet show that is the woods directly in front of you. We have pileated woodpeckers and a red tailed hawk ranging on the property.
We have two big TVs and associated DVD players, stereo (already noted), new Windows 8 computer.
There is no internet. I use my iPhone. There is no cable. There is no landline phone. This is by design. I ditched the landline years ago and my alarm is on cellular. I've been waiting for cable/broadband to show up and we're somehow not yet on that map. But my iphone works fine down there and I use that as my hotspot if I'm working on my laptop. Or option B -- just turn off.
Two window unit AC's that do the job. Space heaters for the winter along with a propane wall unit and the woodstove. Firewood provided.
The bath is nice -- shower insert, pedestal sink, etc.
One note -- this is a cabin deep in the woods. While we do everything we can to mitigate the native pests -- we still get native pests! This would include insects entering the property (though I use an exterminator twice a year) and mice. Unfortunately, mice are a function of cabins. I have baited 'traps' inside and outside and re-doubled my efforts this Spring/Summer but it's not uncommon to run into a mouse. Now, don't get me wrong -- it's not an epidemic but I would like to set expectations. We actively mitigate but eradicating is simply not possible for all the threat.
This is about a 20 year old cabin, built from a kit (courtesy of Poole Saw Mill in Helmsburg, IN). It's poplar log that was laid green and seasoned in-place for two years. Then finished. The man who built it, Daniel, is Amish and did a nice job. He lived on the property for about for about five years and there are several charming outbuildings -- outhouse, manger, canning shed, chicken coop and a little structure on the 'back 40'. Daniel lived in that crazy structure out back for a couple years with his wife and two kids while he was developing the property! I built a big barn in 2001. And there is a large deck on the rear. I recently bought two of those cantilevered umbrellas for shading, for the deck.Get the full listing »
