3 Bdr, 2 Bth, Completely Renovated. Can Walk Into State Park
About Gabe Fauquher
We have been working on our properties here since 2009, building a small, cozy space for wellness, yoga and recreation in the wilderness of western Indiana. My husband and I purchased the 15 acre parcel which included this log cabin and the Farmhouse Cottage next door which is inside Shades State Park and Pine Hills Nature Preserve. The surrounding property is approximately 6000 acres of gorgeous old growth forest, rivers, canyons, and pure silence and serenity. Our vision was to combine my work as a Life Change Consultant and Yoga Instructor with his work as a Naturopathic Doctor specializing in nutrition and wild plants.
Gabe Fauquher purchased this Cabin in 2015
Why Gabe Fauquher chose Waveland
This property truly is located against one of the most unique backdrops in Indiana. The location is amazing and has been called the darkest place in Indiana, which makes for wonderful stargazing opportunities. It's perfect for camp outs, retreats, weddings or romance. It has been called the most unusual place in Indiana due to the many cliff formations in Pine Hills Nature Preserve. The cabin itself is very cozy and accommodating and filled with locally sourced furniture. The owner has built the log furniture and the stair rails with cedar logs from the property and all the other furniture has been made by local craftsmen from Rockville, IN. The 24x24 patio is literally 5 feet from The Pine Hills Preserve and deer frequent the property daily. The cabin also has a very comfy loft that looks out through the the vaulted ceiling windows and provides a wonderful place kids games or reading or just watching the sun go down.
What makes this Cabin unique
The location of this cabin is remarkable. It is surrounded by protected ground on 3 sides and sits against some of the oldest trees in Indiana. It's uniqueness lies within its stillness.

Nice place but needs improvements
This property looked almost exactly like the pictures. Nice kitchen, great fireplace, warm cozy living room on a great lot. However, a big misrepresentation was the two bathroom showers. The picture shown on the site were not what the showers actually look like. Downstairs shower is extremely small, very difficult to wash your hair in because there’s not enough room to lift your arms or turn around. The upstairs shower is unfinished, faucet handle is hard to adjust, showerhead handle did not work at all, and the floor moved underneath you in the shower. Felt as though you might fall through the floor. It appears as though both showers have been torn apart and haphazardly put back together. Mice in the downstairs bedroom wall, made it uncomfortable to sleep in.
This property offers a lot of extras and the owners are very warm and welcoming. If the bathrooms get fixed and the mice are taken care of this can easily be a five-star property.
Hello everyone, this is quite inaccurate unfortunately. The showers are exactly what are posted on the website and function as a shower should. We had to take the glass doors off because the hard water from the well made them too difficult to keep clean, so we hung shower curtains instead. The curtains are much more sanitary because they can be washed or changed out easily. The showers are the size designed by the architect of this cabin and are standard, 32” and 36”. There is a window right next to the downstairs shower which limits the size of the shower. We are constantly making upgrades and improvements so this little piece of heaven in the wilderness so it can continue to be a wonderful experience for everyone.

The Perfect Retreat Center
Everything about Sugar Creek Retreat is outstanding. This is our second retreat making full use of the Cabin, Farm House and Yoga Platform. The owners are easy to work with and have thought of every detail. The kitchen is well-stocked with everything you need for cooking and serving, and there are plenty of towels and paper goods. The place is quaint, cozy and feels like worlds away from the stresses of life. We love it here.
Attractions include clements canoe livery less than 3 minutes away that provides tours on the sugar creek river, rockville covered bridge festival which has more covered bridges than anywhere else in the country, shades sp, turkey run sp, pine hills np (the most unusual place in in) and literally hundreds of miles of hiking trails to experience what true nature is supposed to be.
