This is the place for rest & relaxation, peace and quiet. Best getaway cabin we've ever visited. Hesitantly, we pass it on to the next guests passing through.

Dear Terri and Carl,

Our weekend:  A symphony of birds and wildlife, fish that we want to take home as pets, rolling thunderstorms at sunrise and sunset so powerful the hills shook but the cabin stood strong. Quiet hours on the porch swing, romantic hours in the hot tub, peace and tranquility restored our minds and bodies.

All of this was given to us as a lovely gift and we hope to pass it on to others who will appreciate its blessings.  When Jared and I say our prayers at night we include you both as one.  Thank you for all of these things.   We left behind some music for the library for those who come later.  Thank you.

This is a beautiful and tranquil place. It was a good time to connect with nature, your spouse, yourself. The original log cabin portion has been lovingly restored. If you are inclined, try reading or rereading Pryors' copy of 'A Sand County Almanac' by Aldo Leopold. It's in the book shelf by the fireplace.

The pond area is a great focal point for wildlife. We saw several deer drinking there, including a beautiful 10 point buck. The pond fish are tame, following you as you walk around the pond edge. The soil in the area leading down to the pond is thin and sandy, favoring prairie species. Among the prairie grasses are Indian Grass, Canada Wild Rye & Broomsedge. Wildflowers still blooming included a lobelia (small blue flowers), heath asters (white), and species that appear to be false boneset and Indian pipe (white). We also saw seed heads of butterfly weed, purple coneflower, black-eyed susans, and prairie blazing star. We wonder how long it will be before little bluestem seeds blow in from Blue Prairie and take root here. What an enchanting corner of a beautiful area!

Paul & Linda from Terre Haute

Thanks so much for sharing your “Little Cabin in the Woods” with us – it was absolutely PERFECT!! The wind whispering through the pines, the wild turkeys gathering at the pond, the welcoming fire (inside and out!) … we savored every moment. We have refreshed, relaxed and renewed, ready (reluctantly…) to return to our jobs, school and lives “out there.” We are excited that we can return here soon to again sit back on the porch and watch the world go by from our rocking chair perspective. Great experience, Great Hosts!!

Carol, New Albany, IN

Since we arrived after dark, it was like unwrapping a present this morning when it got light out and we could see what a spectacular setting this truly is. We love getting away to cabins in Tennessee, but that is quite a ways to drive, so we are so excited to have found a place that’s just as great as our Smokey Mountain destinations only an hour from our house!

Eric and Dawn, Greenville, IN

What an amazing escape – our third time here. We’ve spent three of our anniversaries here and we decided there is no where else we’d rather spend it. A Little Log Cabin in the Woods always brings us back to what’s “real.” So many times life moves too fast/people move too fast. It’s wonderful to come here and slow down.

Beth and Jason, Newburgh, IN

It seems as though I’ve been searching for this place for a long time. We’ve tried lots of vacation – get away – spots – some good – some not so good – but this is what I’ve been looking for. A retreat of sorts – back to a simpler time – where less is more, and nature quiets your pace and soul. This place has been built with so much knowledge, craftsmanship and love – thank you for sharing this treasure with those of us unable to do this on our own. I will think of this little cabin in the woods often and long to return to its comfort, warmth and charm. P.S. A real stimulation to the senses inside and out!

Cheryl and Jim, Chesterton, IN

This is our second time here and it is lovelier than we remembered. This place is a small piece of heaven on earth!!

Jeff and Alicia, Lowell, IN

Thanks for sharing this quiet corner. David and I thoroughly enjoyed our two leisurely days here, unwinding by the fire and in the fabulous hot tub! An ideal honeymoon spot—.


From the tulip poplar table, the warm hearth and even the flashlight on the bedside table, the Pryors really do things right. I appreciate the little details that have made our stay so special. Your cabin is superb! Thank you.

David, Bloomington, IN

No where have I found a place of complete renewing as this. All the little touches that you do to personalize a stay meant so much.

Terese and Lonnie

“Shhh” – you’ve got a great secret here tucked away in these hills! Not only does one regain a sense of nature and mother earth, but also an appreciation of each other. Your little secret allowed us to rediscover the strength of our marriage and our love for each other. The seven hour drive was so worth the wait. We hope to return again soon!

Kim and Jessie, Bettendorf, IA

What a beautiful, peaceful way to spend our first couple of days in our new marriage. We thought about all the things to do in the surrounding area, but the enchantment of this cabin won out.

Bill and Connie, Indianapolis, IN

What a great place to celebrate our 25th Anniversary. No phones, no kids, no family or work! We rejuvenated as a couple as well as individually. Locking the gate locked out the outside world for us.

Larry and Belinda, Crestwood, KY

We have always wanted to build a cabin and one day will. I’ve been back and forth about leaving the city – now my decision is made for sure.

Caitlin and Dan, Louisville, KY

The birds spotted were great, especially the turkeys falling out of the evergreens very early in the morning and yet another turkey parading past the porch in the early evening. The fresh snow made the scenery around us all the more magical. The fish in the pond followed us as we walked on the shore (are they trained?)

Kathy and Tacitus, Shorewood, WI

Wildlife Chronicle posted by Bill and Angie, Fort Wayne, IN:

Tufted titmouse
Downy woodpecker
Lizard (perhaps a skink?)
Largemouth bass
Door mouse (actually a regular field mouse, but he did stand guard outside our door)
We heard wild turkeys (very close)

What a truly unique and memorable way to celebrate our 25th Wedding anniversary – a week’s stay in your beautifully restored old log cabin (loved the comfort and security of the locked gate.) We enjoyed the area as much as the cabin. Mountain biking at Lake Patoka, hiking the Springs Valley and Lick Creek trails, canoeing on the Blue River, horseback riding at Wilstem and more….

Mike and Marge, Decatur, IL

Along with everyone else that has signed your guest book – we say thanks so much! I have to be brutally honest and say that I, myself came mostly to prove Kevin wrong – that this was not a “vacation!” I am a true city girl who’s idea of roughing it is staying in a small hotel – never hanging outdoors or sitting still for very long! This was wonderful to sit and listen and become in tune with nature. I need to learn to slow down – that was apparent even in just two short days! We hope to return again and make it a longer stay- Thanks again.

Keven and Laurie, Ossian, IN

I read through this entire book the other night and there is one thing that shows up in every entry. This place is more than just Great! It’s a place to remind yourself what is important in life. It’s a place to lose yourself only to find yourself again. I don’t think thank you is quite enough to say to you when this wonderful slice of life gave us so much more. I can’t explain how wonderful it feels to be refreshed and ready to plunge back to our lives. We will return.

Amy, Louisville, KY

We enjoyed riding our horses in the Hoosier National Forest. We never did that before. We even got to know our horses better. I found out I can stay on my horse when he jumps over streams and thick mud. We both felt like cowboys (girls)! We even waded in streams and let them drink.

Paul and Debbi, Logansport, IN

We had a wonderful time. Your cabin turned out to be the ideal place for my wife and I to reconnect and enjoy each other. With all the distractions gone we were able to sit still for a change and find peace in just being around together. This was exactly what both of us needed.

Jeff and Leah, Fort Wayne, IN

Time stood still for our three days in this little bit of paradise. – Golden Days and Starry Nights. Thank you for allowing us to share your labors…. P.S. The Blue heron that visited twice is a magnificent specimen. Wow!!

Spencer and Jo, Indianapolis, IN

Deer, turkeys, chipmunks, squirrels, Nuthatches, Juncos, Tufted titmouse, Turkey vultures and even a Pileated woodpecker. You are doing a tremendous job of providing for this wildlife.

Wendy and Tim, Springfield, IL

This is a wonderful place and we sing your praises for caring for the land and all that depends upon it. You also deserve great credit for reclamation of the cabin – it is perfect in itself and in this place.

Patrick and Peggy

My daughter had the idea for the two of us to get away together for a few days while she was home on leave from the Air Force for Thanksgiving. We spent some real quality time together, talking, playing games, walking/exploring in the woods. I can’t thank you enough for giving us such a wonderful place to just be together. Sometimes people just feel like they always have to be doing something – we didn’t. We really enjoyed the fact that we were cut off from “things” like the phone, TV,… It’s absolutely beautiful here. I’m sure this is a memory neither of us will ever forget.

Nancy and Allison, Noblesville, IN

As fellow land lovers we, your hosts, so relate to the following passage that we felt it important to include here:

It is inconceivable to me that an ethical relation to land can exist without love, respect, and admiration for land, and a high regard for its value. By value, I of course mean something far broader than mere economic value; I mean value in the philosophical sense.

Aldo Leopold, “The Land Ethic”
