Romantic Respite and Adventure

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with the Logansport area during our stay to celebrate our 28th wedding anniversary! We now fully understand why the Indiana state song is On the Banks of the Wabash. This location is amazing and we were welcomed and cared for like royalty! Ed spoiled us to pieces! We arrived to a glowing fire right on the river and enjoyed the ambiance while rocking in the 2 person patio swing with chilled glasses of our favorite wine. How did Ed know what that is? He contacted us a couple days in advance and asked! That evening, we walked along the river bank, watched a raccoon find his dinner across the way, played horseshoes and snacked on Ed's homemade cookies. For dinner, we ate at a phenomenal restaurant Ed had recommended. Very reasonable prices, THE BEST smoked brisket we've EVER eaten, and lick-the-bowl-good smoked Gouda and bacon mac and cheese can be found at the Old Style Inn, downtown. The Shitake cabin is rustic and romantic. The table was set and waiting and we enjoyed a candle light brunch our first morning. The brunch included a fruit salad I made with fresh fruit Ed had provided. My husband cooked mouthwatering brats over the fire we had purchased from the local market Ed told us about. I scrambled eggs that were waiting for us in the fridge and spread wonderful jam from the market on English muffins. The Criss Cross spa in Logansport is where we splurged on individual Swedish Massages! Oh. My. Nicole Walker is AMAZING!! My husband even admitted the treatment was worth EVERY PENNY!! We left the Spa and took a drive through France Park and enjoyed even more beautiful, tree-lined scenery and completed our day at the cabin. We had brought our ROKU and hooked it up to the tv to add a little atmosphere with music from youtube via the free wifi in the cabin. We slow-danced in the living room and then imbibed on the cake Ed had made us (one layer white and one chocolate because I like one and my hubby likes the other!) it was beautifully decorated and even said Happy Anniversary! We can't imagine having celebrated anywhere happier!!! The only thing about telling you how great it was is that it will make it more difficult to find a free date when we come back. Trust us! With so much to do & see we have to! We have never been so happy with any other homeaway destinations. Only 1 1/2 hours from NE Indiana. Certainly not our last visit, just the first of many more to come! Ed, Morels on the Wabash is FABULOUS!!

Hidden Gem away from the Hustle & Bustle

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful weekend in the Shitaake cabin thanks to Ed! First class service, has the cabin feeling like a home away from home the minute you arrive. He’s a very friendly and pleasant host, always willing to lend a hand in any way he can to make for a great stay. With so many activities available on hand, we had no shortage of things to keep us busy! A truly peaceful and private getaway on some beautiful land. We plan to return in the future because of how nice the overall experience was for us. Easy drive from Lake Michigan area. Be prepared to eat some delicious dessert and spend the drive home wishing you could go back!

Birthday/Anniversary getaway

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I just got home from our weekend getaway at the Morels on the Wabash and we had an awesome time! We don't get away as much as we would like to, but it was so nice to get away for even a few days to ourselves. Ed is very caring and compassionate about his cabin and how we are taken care of. Very hands on and it shows in all the amenities down to the table being set for a romantic dinner with champagne bucket and all !! We LOVED the calm and peaceful atmosphere, the nature, water & wildlife!! Its a perfect setting for a couple to get away !! We also enjoyed the streams and river beds as well as France Park and the trails! I had no idea Logansport was so beautiful. Thank you for caring so much about your guest Ed!!!!! We will be back!!!!

Red carpet experience!!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned home today from the Morels on the Wabash and already miss this magical place. Ed, the owner, puts his heart and soul into making sure each guest is treated like royalty from asking what your favorite snacks and beverages are before you arrive to making sure everything is perfect when you enter your cabin. Ed and his beautiful girlfriend Judy even baked us special treats which included a fabulous cherry pie, muffins and even gave us some delicious ribs to bring home. We greatly enjoyed fishing on the shore with our Westie, and sidekick Finn, as well as exploring the property and all the special niches Ed has created. We also were able to skeet shoot off of our deck which was a riot. At night a dip in the hot tub was glorious after a round of golf at Dykman’s. Ed has several suggestions on great dining spots and we only wish we had more time to enjoy each and every one of them. Truly can’t say enough about Morels on the Wabash! In fact Finn followed Ed home to his cabin because he didn’t want to leave, cant say we blame him. Ed thank you, thank you for one of the best experiences of our lives!

Love - Kim, Jim, and Finn

Huge property and a great place to relax!

  • 5 of 5

We visited Morels on the Wabash in April with a small poodle and were not expecting so much open area for her to run and play on. There was also so much hospitality from the owner. He was there to show us around when we arrived and already had the fire pit ready to go and he is just a text away of there are any questions. The cabin was pretty well stocked with staples so we were able to take it easy upon arrival. The hot tub was great and the fire pit was cozy once the sun went down. We had a very enjoyable time walking the dog along the peaceful river. Though we didn't bring children, with all the space on the property, I can easily image them having a ton of stuff to do there. Will definitely look into visiting again in the future.
