The Treehouse at French Lick Farms - Unique "Off the Grid" Cabin on the River

Riverfront cabin with kitchen and balcony
The Treehouse Cabin is the crown jewel of French Lick Farms if you aren’t ready to be around others or are looking for a more remote stay to leave the stress of everyday life behind and reconnect with nature.   An “off the grid” solar/propane powered two story cabin that provides a peaceful and serene getaway featuring dual level wrap around decks and sweeping views over the surrounding woods, Lost River and neighboring farm.  

The first floor of the cabin features RV style kitchen and bath - with propane powered hot water heater, refrigerator and gas stove.  The dinette converts to a second bed.  The outdoor patio features a massive BBQ, picnic table and fire pit for evening stories around the campfire.

The second story features a desk, closet, queen size bed and a Kenwood DDX3X powering Bose patio speakers for entertainment. You can bluetooth connect your phone to the system and enjoy music while relaxing.

While all the lights, kitchen applicance and water heater do not require it, there is an ultra quiet generator available for those who wish to power the bedroom AC for the warmer months or the Heater for those cool nights. Because this is "off the grid" there are numerous USB plugs to charge phones via the solar power and batteries, however there is only 1 electrical outlet inside the Treehouse that requires the generator to be started.

There are also two pot belly wood burning stoves, one inside the cabin and another on the second story deck for the cooler months.

The Treehouse Cabin is truly your opportunity for a digital detox to disconnect and unplug as it does not feature cable or Wi-Fi on the property. It's the perfect backdrop and breathtaking scenery you need to unplug from the outside world. There is a TV if you wish to connect your device and play downloaded media but it does not have cable service.

I am more than happy to answer any questions you may have so please don't hesitate to ask. Because this is an "off the grid" cabin, the cell service is spotty depending on your provider, there is no internet, WiFi or cable tv, so if you are looking to check out and disconnect - this is the perfect property for you. Currently, T-Moblie and Verizon have better service/reception than AT&T and Sprint.

If you are looking for a more full-service hotel type stay or need to work/stay connected this may not be the right property for you. Feel free to ask any quesitons you may have to make sure we can meet your expectations!

Guest staying on property do have access to all the ammenities in The Lodge including TV, Internet and WiFi however it is about 1/4 mile away from the Treehouse.
Air-conditioned accommodations at this cabin offer coffee/tea makers. Rooms open to balconies. Kitchens offer refrigerators, stovetops, and cookware/dishes/utensils.

Bathrooms include showers. Business-friendly amenities include desks and desk chairs.

5/5 Excellent

100 percent enjoyable!
We enjoyed every minute we were there! The cabin was clean and had everything you would need to make your self at home. The views were beautiful and the hiking… Wow! We brought our dogs and felt that we could stay for much longer. The cabin was warm, shower was hot and the barbecue grill was a great way to stay and enjoy outside! We plan on coming back!!

Tucked Away DreamHouse
Overall this property is a great find, nestled away in the woods along the lost river. Every morning we saw deer and watched the turkey's in the field, some of the best features of the location. One of my likes/dislikes is no cell service. It made it difficult to communicate to the property owners but then again it forced us to really disconnect something we should all do more often. Property owner Sandy was wonderful, she showed us some of the property and how to run the generator if we needed to but since she had not ever stayed overnight on the property she was not aware of some of the issues/concerns. The hot water worked on the first day but thereafter we only got scalding hot water then ice cold freezing water which made showering exciting LOL We were also struggling with watching tv at night, the tv in the kitchen area did not have power, only the tv in the bedroom loft worked but did not have a remote. We were pleased to see that they had a DVD player on the back of the tv, but w/o remote it made it had to watch without getting up and down on a chair to adjust volume, play/pause...Some other things that I don't believe that were mentioned in the description was that this is a solar powered treehouse which is excellent but it is to note there is only one outlet (in one of the kitchen cabinets) to plug in a hair dryer/iron/coffee maker or whatever you need and that is only powered by the generator. The bed was a little rough on the back but doable for a few nights. It would have been nice to have a fan to push around the air in the loft rather then turning on the generator for some cool breezes. Also the fridge/freezer was not running properly to cool and freeze some items we brought up. But truly other than those complaints the property was wonderful, we enjoyed a night near the firepit...also to note bring your music cd's (if you have any left) there is a car stereo disc player near the bed in the loft that is tied to speakers outside, the owls were hooting to our only 2pac CD we had LOL we got a good laugh out of that one. We also located a squirrel catapult just next to the river (looked like a salad bowl dish), we had a blast putting apples in it and sending it down river. Truly a great find, loved the property, only wished I had a few more nights to really settle in and enjoy it.
