Starlight Country Cabin 1830's
Table Of Contents
Welcome to the Starlight Country Cabin 1830, located in Floyds Knobs, Indiana!
The 1400 square foot historical log home is a blend of old and new. Native chestnut oak hand hewn logs chinked with mud and straw will take you back in time- healing the soul in this beautiful natural setting. The living room has the original fireplace made from massive hand cut sand stone. The hardwood oak floors and ceilings with spacious windows add a warm glow. The 1830's cabin is furnished in antiques, beds are made with quilts over sheets which have hung in the sunshine to dry.
This original log home of Francis Joseph and Theresa Schmidt sits next door to the farm where it was built nearly 200 years ago in Starlight, Indiana. Restored as a vacation cabin for an incredible get away for you, friends or family, it is the perfect spot to get away and enjoy the peace of rural Starlight, experiencing the life of the early German settlers to this area. It is also a natural for small group/corporate retreats. We have gift certificates available for this relaxing stay.
Throughout the log cabin are reminders of days gone by. The cabin has a full and furnished country kitchen made for family dining, two spacious bedrooms with vaulted wood ceilings and two bathrooms with showers. Full front and back porches are made for watching sunrises or sunsets over the tree tops as you sip coffee or maybe a glass of wine. Listen to the birds sing. Watch cows graze calmly in pastures on neighboring farms. You might like to sit in a rocker or swing with lemonade as you play checkers, read a book or just enjoy fireflies at dusk over fields of crops against a crimson sky.
Just off the back porch is an outdoor hot tub to soak your cares away under a starlit sky - the perfect way to end any day. Relax! You are welcome to fish in the small farm lake which the cabin overlooks. Inspect the herb garden and the aroma of mint, lemon balm or oregano will delight the senses. Pick blackberries or grapes in season. Hike along the woods and fields where you might see deer, wild turkeys or even an occasional coyote. Watch life on the farm or check out antique horse drawn tools used so many years ago. Enjoy dinner at any of the Starlight restaurants where friendly home cooking is a way of life.
