Morels on the Wabash is a perfect opportunity to experience the wonders of nature without giving up the comforts of home. If you need to relax, unwind and recharge this is the place for you.

Our cabins provide the perfect location to enjoy the beauty of spring, summer and fall. The beautiful, romantic cabins overlook the historic Wabash River.

We feature fishing, hiking, canoeing, kayaking, and biking. Your stay includes the use of the Archery range with 3-D targets and elevated deer stands, an eagle watch tower to view the nesting bald eagles, a golf driving cage, irons and balls provided, corn hole, horseshoes and a volleyball court. There is a bluegill pond for the kids to fish in (catch and release only) or they can feed the fish. There are play sets and swings for the kids to enjoy and plenty of room for them to run around and play. The kids will enjoy a treasure hunt for the buried treasure left by Chief Logan on the island on the property. Clay pigeon shooting is available upon advanced notice and is strictly supervised per an additional charge. The property also has a walk-in cooler and fish cleaning station. Pet Friendly with prior approval.

Every cabin has their own private hot tub and fire pit with all the wood you need to build an awesome fire to relax by and toast some marshmallows or enjoy a nice glass of wine. While you are preparing dinner go out to you own little garden to pick some fresh herbs or veggies that have been grown especially for you.

Enjoy a nice stroll around the property and look at all the beautiful flowers grown in the greenhouse on site, sit in the gazebo and watch the river drift by, walk on the beach and wet you toes in the Majestic Wabash River that runs by the cabins, or share the Cabana bed or one of the many hammocks placed around the grounds.

Our cabins are each very unique and decorated in rustic chic that provides that homey atmosphere away from home. This site is perfect for that romantic getaway or a wonderful family vacation that has something for everyone.

All our hand built cabins feature full kitchens, full bathrooms, queen size beds, TV/DVD with limited cable, fire pit, a deck, hot tub and outdoor grill.

Portabella Cabin: On entering the Portabella Cabin, you look around and realize this is a large cabin and features a living room with a fire place, dining area, full kitchen, full bathroom with tub/shower combination, a master bedroom with queen bed, bunk beds, futon and a loft bedroom with 2 beds. Hot tub, corn hole and picnic area outside. The deck allows you to relax and watch the beauty of the river.

Shitake Cabin: This is our most romantic cabin, featuring an enclosed hot tub, huge 2 level deck that leads directly to the rivers edge, a bedroom with queen sized bed and a view of the Wabash River from every window, a full kitchen, bathroom with shower, living room with queen size hide-a-bed couch. At the river edge is a romantic area with a fire pit.

Primitive camping is also available with fresh water nearby. Proprietor Ed Dawson is an Eagle Scout and the property is Scout friendly for camping events and activities.

Morels on the Wabash is ideal for the sports-minded, family reunions, or those who just want a peaceful spot to get away from it all and recharge your batteries.

Great Relaxing Place

  • 5 of 5

We had a great relaxing time in our cabin. Beautiful area on the Wabash River. We had a great time fishing, and thank you for our special treats, especially the chocolate anniversary cake the owner Ed made, the best chocolate cake I ever had. You really need to give me the chocolate frosting recipe 😄 We really enjoyed the hot tub. You are truly a great host made us feel at home. Very pet friendly also. Really enjoyed the views from the cabin very peaceful. Will definitely be back thanks again for everything.

Great experience, but soured by one issue.

  • 3 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. Everything was great and we felt that Ed really went out of his way to make sure we had wonderful time. The reason I can only give three stars has nothing to do with the quality of the facility. Rather, it comes down to a financial issue. We stayed over Labor Day weekend. Apparently, the price is increased by $55 per night over holiday weekends. We were never informed of this, and it came as quite a shock when we received out bill. We had specifically booked two nights because we couldn't afford to stay three on our budget. Unfortunately, because of the increase in holiday price, we ended up having to essentially pay for three nights anyway. This issue really soured what was otherwise a great trip, and made what we had felt was a good deal feel like a rip-off.

Owner's Response: I am sorry you feel that way . The holidays are always more in demand . I could have rented that weekend for a lot more .For that week end I had a offer for 245 per night if i would cancel your stay. I turned it down due to the fact that you had already booked it .Most people do not realize that cabin rentals are seasonal . I work very hard to make every ones experience memorable and enjoyable . If you notice in the listing it says" holiday pricing . Please take note that I will offer you " your rate " in the off season if you are interested. Less 20% . ... Thanks You for your review , Ed

Feel like part of the family

  • 5 of 5

I read many of the reviews before staying here. Some likened this to staying at a nice resort...I would say that is not the case and NOT in a bad way. In fact, it is more personal and better than many resorts. It is more like staying with family. The cabin and property are quiet and relaxing, but with plenty of activities for the whole family. But the best part of the trip is the host. Ed truly cares about providing you with an outstanding experience and goes out of his way to ensure you have all the comforts of home. He is generous, friendly, and you can tell he loves being a host. From the fresh baked pie to the freshly picked vegetables to the roaring fire waiting in the fire pit, everything feels so thoughtful. He took the kids to feed the fish in the bluegill pond every day, and my daughter was lucky enough to be included with Girl Scout activities that were going on this past weekend. We look forward to coming back when the treehouse gets put in! Thanks for everything!
