We have stayed too many times to count since they opened in 2002. Always fantastic, never disappointed. Attention to detail always appreciated.

Loved it!

Our Stay Cabins & Candlelight

My girlfriend booked a cabin with Cabins & Candlelight Jan 2nd-5th 2016 as a total surprise to me. After arrival, and inspection of the cabin, it's amenities and the grounds...the seduction was complete. We were totally impressed with how clean it was, and how cozy and comfortable it felt. Indianapolis residents, if you want a getaway that is only 45 minutes from Indy, yet literally in the middle of nowhere...this place is for you. Cell phone reception (Verizon) was basically nonexistent, and we didn't care. The grounds are very well kept, and I can only imagine how beautiful it would've been with a fresh snowfall, or how nice it is in the summer months. It was sunny a couple of days we were there, and a bird feeder in the back gave us plenty to observe as several species of bird sampled it's offerings. If you're a star gazer, the pitch black nights give you quite the display...a telescope would be worth bringing. Shades State Park, and Turkey Run State Park are about 45 minutes away for hiking, or to enjoy nature. But...if you prefer, you can simply enjoy the quiet ambiance the cabin and grounds provide. There is a television, a dvd player, and stereo. They offer a selection of movies (we brought some) as well as board games, puzzles etc. There is also a land line telephone in the room, so the lack of cell service isn't an issue. I could go on and on, but as you might be able to discern, myself and Sherri were truly happy, and satisfied with the cabin, and the total experience. I trumped up a reason to meet Rhonda who was prepping the adjoining cabin, and she was very nice and welcoming. If you're looking for a quiet getaway...Cabins & Candlelight is definitely worth considering. Kevin Cheatham & Sherri Bucher :-)

Amazing getaway

From the second we walked in, we were thrilled with the cabin. The charming, rustic-yet-modern decor, the music playing as we walked in...we felt at home instantly! The cabin was spotless. Having a full kitchen was a definite plus! We are already planning our return visit.

Best getaway ever

I found this little gem about 4 years ago and keep coming back. two little cabins nestled away in the local middle of nowhere makes for a great 1 or 2 night escape from reality. Perfect modern cabins, wonderful property to roam. Soft warm beds. The perfect getaway from life for a while.

This log cabin on 30 plus acres is completely above our expectations. Beautiful furniture and cleanliness. They even clean the outdoor grill. Stocked with tons of food. Awesome setting. Deer sightings.
