7 Acres close to skiing, hiking, spalunking, canoeing ,moutian biking and over 700 acres across the street of undeveloped Hoosier National Forest . Great for Hunting Learn more about this land: The Cabin is powered by solar & wind and uses a filtered rain water collection system. It is close to French Lick & Paoli, hiking, golf, canoeing, spelunking, skiing hunting and more. Please note that during the winter months the angle of the sun is lower and the panels do not produce as much power as in the summer months (plus you have less daylight hours) . Depending on the cloud cover you may be limited to lights only in November, December, January and February  . There is a generator available for rent at $10.00 per night plus gas or you can bring your own.  There is a wood stove and a 13,000 btu indoor gas wall heater for heat, both units provide more than enough heat. There are two window air conditioning units that can be used in May, June, July and August. Once you get to the end of August or on cloudy days you are limited to the amount of time you can use the AC units unless you rent the generator.   There is a propane cook stove available if you run out of power and 2 charcoal grills (you supply charcoal).   Please note that the cabin is still a work in progress and is not 100% completed. Also note that if rain is limited there may be no water.The Cabin is powered by solar & wind and uses a filtered rain water collection system.

Solar Off The Grid Cabin
We thoroughly enjoyed our weekend at this off the grid cabin. The setup was interesting to learn about and more than suited our needs. This isn't an Airbnb or Holiday Inn, but it's certainly a step up from camping. The host was very responsive in helping with any issues, even driving a long way to replace some equipment. Very quiet and peaceful overall, we certainly plan to come back!

A simple, but lovingly built cabin on a really lovely property. We came down from Chicago in early April to get a jump on the spring, and what a treat! Birdsong, wild flowers and the lovely fresh green of the trees starting to leaf out. Peaceful and soul soothing! It was interesting and inspiring to be in a self sustaining off the grid cabin, and there was plenty of battery power to meet our needs. There is lots to do in the immediate area. Hoosier national park has great hiking trails, as do the nearby state parks. Exploring some of the nearby caves was exciting.

Awesome off the grid place. Will return for another stay. Great way to explore the idea of off the grid living. Close enough to many attractions and parks that you can make a weekend out of it and never run out of things to do! Ed is an excellent host as well!
