Simple Blessings Cabin is nestled on 16 secluded acres in the rolling hills of eastern Monroe County between the IU campus and Nashville. It is a special place for 2-4 adults who want to relax and unplug in a serene setting.

The space
Just a short distance off of Highway 46, drive up the gated lane to discover this secluded retreat. The cabin is made from hand-hewn poplar logs harvested from the land in the 1970s. It has been lovingly restored to offer a kitchen with knotty hickory cabinets, stainless steel appliances, broken-edged granite countertops and a hammered copper sink.
The open concept flows into the living room complete with a leather couch, hickory lodge rockers and a big, comfy "cow" chair. You can relax and watch the gas-burning log stove, the 48" flat-screen TV and the many different birds that visit the feeders out the picture window.
The screened-in porch offers the perfect spot for a cup of coffee, glass of wine or a good book. There is also a 1/2 bath on the main floor. It has a front- loading washer and dryer for your convenience.
Upstairs you will find two bedrooms and a full bath. The bedrooms each feature queen-size, extra gnarly, Aspen log beds from Colorado/Utah that we fell in love with! The highlight of the bathroom is the travertine tile and glass shower complete with a soothing rain-flow shower head.
We have had a lot of fun finding unique lighting, including many chandeliers, that we put throughout the cabin and all on dimmers to add to the ambiance.
"The outdoor space is such a peaceful, quiet, wooded spot." No neighbors, cars or people in sight. Deer, birds, squirrels and wild turkey abound. It is a place to reconnect with your spouse, family, friends, faith and nature. By design, the cabin does not offer Wifi, and many guests have mentioned that this is an unexpected bonus!
The cabin has a good size yard with enough room to throw a football. There is also a fire pit, Adirondack chairs and some starter fire wood. You may enjoy walking the hiking trail around the property or down the lane if you want a good work out.
Simple Blessings is located about 7 miles from Bloomington and 12 miles to Brown County's Nashville. There is unique shopping, dining, horseback riding, zip-lining, Brown County State Park, Lake Monroe, Lake Lemon, or Yellowwood Park all within a 15-25 minute drive.
Bloomington is only a 15 minute drive. It has been rated one of the top cities for dining in the country! It is home to Indiana University that offers sporting and musical events all year long. The cabin would be the perfect spot for an IU game weekend, visit with your student or a trip to one of the many local wineries.
Of course, you can also just hang out at the cabin and read, cook, watch a movie, make a fire or play the many board and card games included. We installed a park-style charcoal grill so bring your burgers and briquettes! We also have a coffee maker and Keurig available for your use. NOTE: We do require a 3 night minimum for Holidays attached to weekends.

During your stay

We do not live on the premises, but we are only a text away if you have a question. We will have a designated on-call person for you to contact if we are not available. The cabin is equipped with a keyless entry system, and we will give you an access code. Please make yourselves at home and enjoy! If it works into both of our schedules, we’d love to stop over and say hi, but the last thing we want to do is intrude.
