We created the Sunrise Cabin as your getaway on our organic farm. This cabin is made from all sorts of repurposed and reimagined materials, so it's good for the planet and for you. The Sunrise Cabin has a wood floor, carpets, and a queen bed, plus loads of windows so you really feel like you're in the forest (and you get a good cross breeze!). The cabin is in the woods and faces east, so you'll have a view of sunrise through the forest, right from your queen bed. The cabin is rustic, and outfitted with the basics - bedding, shelves, lights, a good ceiling fan, and two outlets. The French doors open onto the porch (the perfect place to read a book or do some yoga). You'll have your own campfire ring and picnic table, and potable water and composting toilet are less than a minute walk away. Your parking spot is about 100' from the cabin.
Though we're an easy three-mile drive from the Interstate, you'll never know it when you're tucked away at the Sunrise Cabin.
We built the cabin just behind our 1800's barn, so you'll have a sense of privacy - and, depending of the time of year, baby chicks or our small flock of sheep for neighbors. There's limited cell service here at the farm, so you can unplug; the frogs, lightning bugs, and woods will keep you occupied instead!
The Sunrise Cabin is small (about 12'x12'), and has a queen bed. It's really designed for two people, though you could lay out a sleeping pad/bag on the floor or porch if you needed to squeeze in another! If you're traveling with more than 2 people, just click "Add Additional Guests" or consider booking our Canvas Bell Tent. It's located about a 300' walk away, in the same woods, but you'll all have privacy because of the forest.
We built the cabin from old barn timbers, scrap wood, windows a friend was replacing, salvaged doors, and more. We actually used to list this site as a three-sided shelter, as you'll see in some photos...it was originally a horse shelter! In 2021, we converted it to a cabin, adding a fourth wall (with French doors and windows) and a nice 12'x6' porch.
Our Farm (Nightfallfarm.com) is a sustainable livestock farm, where we raise animals on pasture and sell meat and eggs locally. There's lots to explore here at 125-acre farm: see our pigs, chickens, turkeys, and lambs; walk on our trails through our woods and restored wetlands; or stroll along the Muscatatuck River.
We can add on a casual farm tour where kids of all ages check out the farm animals and see how we're bringing this land back to life ($15 per person).
Looking to spend time in nature? You'll be near lots of good options. Our farm is about 20 minutes from family-friendly paddling options and easy hikes at Muscatatuck National Wildlife Refuge and Hardy Lake State Recreation area (bring your kayak or canoe!). It's about a 30 minute drive to our favorite hikes at Clifty Falls State Park and Jackson-Washington State Forest, where you can find steep hills and hollers, excellent views, fossils, creeks, and waterfalls.
Or try these neat, low-key outings nearby:
1. Paddle or hike in southeast Indiana. Loads of trails listed on Alltrails.com, and we can give some tips on easy flatwater paddling within a 30 minute drive.
2. Tastings, apple picking or a visit to the pumpkin patch at Huber Winery (or any other winery on the Indiana Wine Trail).
3. Madison, Indiana's many, many festivals (for Blues, try "RibberFest"; for arts, try "Chautauqua"; the list goes on!).
4. Visit Columbus, Indiana for architecture tours, local eating (try Upland Brewing's Pumphouse...their nachos feature our chicken), or the Corn Maze Beer Fest at 450 North Brewing.

I was looking for a place to disconnect and relax and this was exactly what we needed. We loved getting to see the sheep and walk the trails or just lay in bed with the windows open to listen to the nature sounds. Already can't wait to be able to go back.
Sleeping with the sheep
My husband and I loved our stay! Our little shelter was nice and we were right next to some adorable sheep. It was surprisingly pleasant going to bed with sheep bleating, and we loved taking a break from city sounds for a night. We took a farm tour & my husband is now convinced he’s ready for farm life. Liz was super welcoming and gave us so much insight into her day-to-day. We can’t wait to come back!
This was one of our favorite stops of the trip. We loved the farm atmosphere, and it was so cool to wake up and see sheep right next door. The owners were super nice and accommodating and spent lots of time telling my daughter about the sheep, which was above and beyond. We hope to come back again.
Staying here was perfect for a peaceful place to sleep while on a long road trip. The hosts were very welcoming and walking around the farm was great. I was also treated to a showing of hundreds of fireflies lighting up the area around the shelter as the sun went down
This campsite was exactly what we needed - a quiet escape! Liz was welcoming and informative. We loved the private camping area, nearby hiking trail, and fuzzy chick neighbors. What a wonderful hidden gem, not too far from the interstate. Can't wait to have the opportunity to return!
I really can’t say enough about how wonderful our stay was. The shelter was charming and had enough for us all to hang hammocks ( myself and 3 kids !) the Shelter is placed where you feel completely private and peaceful. But also close enough it’s easy to
Unload the car and get water etc. the farm itself is wonderful. Liz and Nate are amazing humans doing wonderful ( and hard!) and work. They were so patient with all our many questions and so kind. The animals are all
So beautiful and healthy and the countryside is peaceful and full of birds and and roads and frogs and bunnies and we saw a bald eagle - all around a truly wonderful experience.
