Overview

About the property

6-7 bedrooms, 5 full bathrooms, 1 half bathroom, sleeps 16+

Sorry, the Dogwood Springs Guesthouse is closed to any new reservations for the 2017-2018 calendar years at this time.

A nice country retreat consisting of 40+ wooded acres looking out on a 7 acre private lake located 40 miles west of Indianapolis off Interstate 70 . Enjoy boating, swimming and great fishing-the lake is stocked with bass and blue gill. Miles of hiking trails venture in the adjoining woods of Dogwood Springs Forest Preserve that are especially beautiful in the fall. Large, fully equipped kitchen with seating for 20 includes industrial oven/range. Living room views the lake with comfortable seating and HD TV. A large deck off the kitchen and living room is equipped with barbecue and two patio tables. Or use the fire pit barbecue area near the lake. The cabin room has the fireplace and an assortment of books for reading. The game room is in the lower level having a television, pool table, kitchenette and walk out patio. The Dogwood Springs Guesthouse is a destination location suitable for family reunions & group getaways.

The house is recently remodeled, fully furnished and stocked with everything you need except food. We will do all we can to make your stay an enjoyable and memorable experience. Please use caution because you are in a wilderness area and use of the lakes is at your own risk. Life vests are provided for swimming. We recommend you bring sunscreen, insect repellent and your own fishing gear. No fishing license is required. Also, please use caution, there is heavy truck traffic on HWY 243 from the local quarries. Thank you for your interest.

A wonderful place - perfect for a large group

  • 5 of 5

This house is lovely and equipped with everything you might need. The grounds are beautiful. We love the lake, the fire pit, the 2 big porches, the trails, and the peaceful setting.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful setting and home, we all were amazed with your home and the property. We arrived before our children and grandchildren and were a little concerned that they may not feel like there was enough to do, all we heard throughout the weekend was how much they enjoyed the property because there was so much to do. Wonderful place for a family to get together and yet enough space if you needed some alone time, you could certainly find it. Accommodations were more than we expected, the house is so well stocked that we brought more than we needed -just in case! Hard to put into words how much we all enjoyed this weekend, we thank the Edwards family for sharing this beautiful retreat with us, we certainly want to return and make this an annual event at this property, we've found a second home, thank you again. Gil & Trudy and family

Great location for a weekend away!

  • 5 of 5

Cloverdale is an absolute treat! We had a weekend getaway at this beautiful lake house property and had an amazing time. It has all the commodities one would need as well as provides you with the privacy and freedom one desires on vacation. The lake was great and the weather was perfect. Thanks for letting us stay!

Wonderful place for a family vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generational family stayed here the last week of July. We love quiet solitude and this property was just perfect. Fishing was great, we could swim without needing to watch for motor boats, a couple porches/decks gave us places to read and chat, the trails were great for walking, and the large table in the kitchen let all 14 of us eat together. Vaughn even put out a box of toys for our two year old granddaughter to use. The house is well-furnished and we enjoyed the floating pontoon for fishing and swimming. Our only regret is that the home isn't available for rent after this summer.

Really enjoyed our visit!

  • 5 of 5

This is our second year at the Dogwood Springs house. We have loved it both times. Lots to do for all ages. The kids love the pond, paddleboats and the golf cart. They get a kick out of fishing on the dock. The house is clean with a great kitchen and plenty of space for a large group. Big deck where we enjoyed eating meals. Nice area for a fire and even a swingset for little ones. We'll book it again.
