About Chuck & Marie Damler

Marie and I built this home for us to use and enjoy. After allowing Marie's parents to live here for a few years we have decided to allow others to enjoy the beauty of the home and the tranquility of our property. Spend the weekend or the week with us and you will feel the difference.

Chuck & Marie Damler purchased this cabin in 2009

What makes this cabin unique

The home is semi private, the area seems secluded yet you are still close to shopping, theatre, entertainment, zoo, water park etc. You have use of our 3 acre lake in conjunction with the guests from The Cottage at Natural Valley Ranch as well as access to our trails the new B&O rail to trail byway and horseback riding while you are here.

Guestbook comments from the owner


Vacation was enjoyed by all - needed vacation for sure.

We are also in the process of blending my daughters husbands kids into the Connor family so a week of one on one was great for them and all of us - a vacation no one will forget for sure.

Many new things this past week - none have ever fished or canoed or been on any type of boat either so many new experiences for Paul (daughters husband) and kids this week.

Location - 2hrs form us was perfect - the house, lake, woods - Petting zoo and horse back riding was all just wonderful.

Thank you, so much.

The Connor Family.

Lots of Pluses, but too many minuses

  • 3 of 5

Pros: Lake for Fishing and Swimming

Con: No oars for the row boat and no life jackets. The oars were destroyed by another group and there is no intention to replace them.

Pros: Size and amenities of the house - kitchen was well stocked

Cons: The only places where the walls go all the way to the ceiling are in the basement, so if you have small children, sound is a problem.

Also, the floors were not cleaned well, the one medal bed frame was turned around backwards and one guy tore his leg open on it. The biggest con was that the water smell and color was offensive. I did a little investigation and discovered the water softener tank had no salt in it. If the softener was working, I believe the water would have been significantly better.

The wrap around porch was very nice. The internet worked well.

The house had a couple curio cabinets and bookshelves which didn't seem child friendly.

The house was nice, but less than I had expected.

Owner's Response: We do often replace the oars on the row boats and just as quickly they are destroyed by the guests. We currently have 5 canoe paddles and the oars for the row boats were just replaced. We have replaced them twice this year. We have never nor do we intend to provide life jackets. This is clearly stated on our VRBO policy. We do try and keep up on salt for the water softener. But sometimes we do make a mistake and miss things. We are very responsive to our guest's requests and usually within a few hours have the problem resolved. All of our contact information is readily available and we are just a phone call away. We take pride in the beauty and furnishing of the cabin. We understand that not all guests will agree with the way we have designed or decorated the home. Small children do have to be supervised when staying, as they should be in any unfamiliar environment.

Had a great time. Very private but close enough to enjoy the trails and tourist attractions that Indianapolis has to offer. . Grandchildren loved the lake, canoeing and kayaking.

Fun back-to nature opportunity

  • 4 of 5

There were 20 of us, ages 3-83, who converged on this house for our annual family-girls trip. Everybody had a bed, and we thoroughly enjoyed the large great room for crafts and conversation, the many seating areas on the big wraparound porch, and the lake - for boating and swimming. We were unprepared for the actual open-ness of the house: the walls of the main floor and 3rd floor loft area did not reach the ceilings, so any noise from the kitchen carried, making sleep difficult (for the little kids, and thus, for their mothers). The basement was a great area for the late-nighters who played games and talked without disturbing anyone. The kitchen has everything you'd need, and there was a huge grill which we used for one of our dinners. Most people took advantage of the opportunity to ride horses, and we were close enough to town to run and pick up items as we needed them.

Perfect for a large family vacation

  • 5 of 5

The Cabin at Natural Valley was everything advertised and more. It's not often that you can satisfy all the people in a family as large as ours but everyone loved it!

Thank you, Chuck and Marie.
