We're bringing my family farm back to life. My parents farmed here until the 1980's, but couldn't make a profit with corn and soybeans. My husband, Nate, and I moved home in 2014, and started turning the fields into pastures. Today, we run Nightfall Farm, raise animals with respect, and sell pasture-raised meat locally. Come wander the 125 acres of woods, wetlands, and farm. Check out the animals in our pastures, and walk along the Muscatatuck River. Enjoy a quiet fire. Hear the roar of frogs calling in Spring. Chase fireflies. Behold a family farm coming back to life.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 will have access to our brand new Outdoor Kitchen, including a real sink (with potable water), a two-burner propane stove, all the basic cooking/eating things (plates and utensils, mugs, electric hot water heater, french press, a few pots, sharp knives and cutting board, colander, etc). The Outdoor Kitchen is a shared space (but we only have two Hipcamp sites, so it's always pretty quiet!). Your own campfire ring and picnic table are right in front of the cabin and your private composting toilet is 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 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.

This place is amazing! Don’t be fooled by the fact that it is behind a barn. It is 100% private. It’s absolutely beautiful out there. The host is super sweet and helpful. We would come here every weekend if we could.

An Incredible Escape
AMAZING PLACE! My fiancé and I have been traveling for two weeks. We saw the eclipse and went to Dollywood, amongst other adventures. We’ve stayed in multiple places along the way. This place was BY FAR our favorite! Amazing cabin they’ve built, very comfortable bed & blankets, a superb outhouse, fresh water, and a kitchen! The host Liz is a lovely human being who was very attentive and gave us a tour of the farm! We will definitely be back!!!

Cozy Getaway Cabin
My husband and I were looking for a get-away in the woods last weekend, and the cabin at Nightfall Farm was perfect for our needs. It was cold outside, but there were plenty of blankets on the bed and even an area heater, if needed. It was so cozy in the cabin, and with all the windows, it was wonderful to look out at the trees and the full moon. The outdoor kitchen was very useful and had just about everything we needed, so we didn't have to bring any of our own camping gear for meals. They even had a small fridge. The firewood bundle we purchased from them was perfect, with everything needed to build a fire for one evening. It was quiet and peaceful. We brought our camping chairs, although there is seating in the outdoor kitchen as well as a picnic table right outside the cabin, and one chair in the cabin next to a desk. It was a bit cold when using the outhouse with the compost toilet, but it was very close to the cabin and felt sturdy and secluded. It even had a little nightlight. There is an overhead light and a reading lamp in the cabin. We brought an electric lantern that we used as needed to walk around at night. Liz and Nate are wonderful hosts, and we knew if we needed help or had any questions all we had to do was knock on the door of their house, a short walk from the cabin. It is a great place to unplug, read a book, play a board game and take some walks. I imagine it's gorgeous in the fall.
