This rustic waterfront barn rental is set in the idyllic Hoosier National Forest, Indiana right on the banks of Patoka Lake. With space for up to 16 guests, it is ideal for a reunion, a group getaway, or just a family holiday where guests can get away from it all and leave the hustle and bustle of city life behind them for a few nights. Among four bedrooms and a loft space, guests will find various combinations of full and twin-size beds, including three fold-away Murphy beds in the game room. Towels and linens are kindly provided.

There are two living spaces for guests to relax in, one upstairs and one on the ground level. With plenty of armchairs and sofas, guests can relax in either, and the ground level living space boasts a wood-burning stove to add to the cozy aesthetic of the rental. The fully-equipped kitchen has all the cookware and utensils necessary to prepare great meals.

Outside, guests have a deck to sit out on and enjoy the woodland surroundings of this unique rental.
