About Robert Woodling

Avid lover of the hardwood ecological environment. 2007 Indiana Outstanding Tree Farm of the Year. 2009 North Central Regional Outstanding Tree Farm of the Year. Retired from Indiana University in 2010. I play in the woods, that's what I do.

Robert Woodling purchased this house in 2009

Why Robert Woodling chose Unionville

We purchased this property as the last parcel of the original farm dating back to the 1860s. It is now part of our 103 acre managed forest. Enjoy your stay with access to the forested trails, wildlife ponds, birdwatching observation towers and still be within easy driving distance of all Brown and Monroe counties have to offer.

What makes this house unique

Enjoy all that nature and the surrounding communities have to offer during the day and a relaxing hot tub in the evening followed up by a movie on the large screen TV, listen to your favorite music, or just visit with family and friends.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We have stayed in a number of cabin rentals and have had a wide range of experiences. While all of them were good, some stand out as better than others. The difference is the little things. This property is obviously well maintained and the few 'small things' in the kitchen make a big difference in comfort and experience. Thank you so much for taking the time to put that effort into your property and our experience. My wife and I do not get much time to be away from the 'real world' so this really means a lot to us. It may be a business for you, but for us it is freedom, nature and just being able to be with each other. My only suggestion would be some trail markers. Your property brought us an experience that we will cherish for years. Thank-you!

P.S. This place is a bird lovers paradise! Loved it! And thanks for the wild flower bouquet!! :-))

Family Reunion at Elm House

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a house and boy did we hit the jackpot! There was plenty of room to accommodate our family members that came from north & south Indiana and Michigan. Elm House was very clean and inviting. Because of the rain and lightening storms we were disappointed that we could not enjoy the hiking trails and the hot tub. The weather got better just in time for our family barbecue. Everyone was amazed at how nice Elm House was. If your looking for a very nice place to stay out in the beautiful country, Elm House is a must. Thank you Robert Woodling for making your home a wonderful place to stay.

I enjoyed my stay at Elm House very much beyond my expectations

  • 5 of 5

The property was so quiet and beautiful with the trails and all the open space. The fenced yard was wonderful for my grandchildren. The deck and shelter tent was great for our outside time. The house itself was very well stocked and very homey. The use of washer and dryer was very helpful. The ice maker was very large and we enjoyed that. Overall we had a great visit and plan on coming again. Thanks so much.

Tranquil location with some amazing forest trails

  • 4 of 5

We spent a very peaceful weekend here. The home was well-equipped and tidy. We particularly enjoyed the trails through the forest and relaxing on the back patio (they even had citronella candles!). Highly recommended if you're looking for a secluded place to relax.
