Looking to get away from the fast paced life? This cozy 2-story, 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath, rustic log cabin, sits on 4 acres tucked against the hills just outside Indiana's Hoosier National Forest in the Ohio River Valley. Kick back on the decks, relax in our hot tub, or watch the fire dance in the outdoor fire pit. Calm, tranquil, SERENITY!
“All we can say is wow! This little gem is near the Ohio river and I really hate to tell everyone how great this place is because it will quickly be booked before we get a chance to book it ourselves again. This location was very private and had everything you needed there. 2 Bedrooms with the master bedroom that had a balcony to it. A large hot tub outside on the ground floor in a covered area that was really nice. Washer and dryer, plenty of hot water for showers. Derby, Indiana is a very small town of about 300 people that does have a small gas station / general store We went to the local bar / restaurant just down the street and talked with the friendly owner, Denise, and met some of the locals! Very nice people. If you want to kick back, slow down, and just chill and be private this is the place to go. Hidden near the Hoosier Forrest, you get to hear only the sounds of nature and not some highway noise while relaxing. There is a charcoal grill and a fire pit with a grill available. Cable tv. 4G is spotty at times but that is really ok because sometimes we really just need to shut off the phone and social media! This is a great place to let that happen. I'm sure we will be returning! Thanks for being a superhost!”
This fully remodeled modern farmhouse style home is located overlooking the Ohio River in Magnet, IN. The seven acre property includes a barn, garage and a lake in the back yard with dock for fishing/relaxing and adjoins the Hoosier National Forest. Located on a high peak overlooking the beautiful scenic Ohio River valley below, the breath taking view is a must see! Also, located about 50 minutes from Holiday World.
“I almost don't want to leave this review so we can keep this heavenly home away from home a secret! That being said, Tammy is an incredible host. I had a thousand questions and she INSTANTLY answered All of them! The house was fully stocked INCLUDING a full rack of Firewood. The Fire pit is AWESOME and the patio is incredible for any Work from Home environment! The Pond is STOCKED and as complete Rookies we caught two 10+ in Bass! Everything is updated and exceptionally clean. The entire property is quite and serene and the views of your private pond or the Ohio River across the yard make for some pretty phenomenal Instagram pics! ; ) It is obvious (and was key to contributor to our amazing stay) that Tammy has treated for insects both inside and out. The mattress and pillows are better quality than many 4 star hotels. Overall, This was an incredible home away from home and We Strongly recommend it for families, couples, friends, or just anyone looking for a peaceful Country getaway! Actually I take that back, don't come here so we can rent it all the time ;)”
Welcome to the rolling hills of Southern Indiana. Your escape from the day to day grind awaits. Our cabin was built in the 1800's and reassembled (with modern conveniences) in 1996. Ideal for the hunter, hiker, boater or fisherman. Thousands of acres of Hoosier National Forest, the Ohio River and it's tributaries all provide a one of a kind outdoor recreation experience. Or you can just sit next to the fire, enjoy the night sky and relax! Either way... Welcome to Derby.
“Our 5th or 6th visit & it was amazing as always. Deanna & Tom always make us feel like family. It was our first time being able to use the fireplace (even our kids were excited about using the fireplace).. There is absolutely nothing bad to say about the Derby Escape. It's a great place for my family and myself to go decompress & spend time together as a family. We've made many memories here and I cant wait to make more.”
