“Our home away from home”
Reviewed 5 November 2015 for a stay in October 2015

We have traveled to Magnet, IN the last 9 years and have stayed at the Moondance every year. The cabin has all the amenities of home and then some extra's like ahot tub, gas grill, rocking chairs and picnic table all outside on a wrap around porch overlooking the Ohio River. It's clean and very inviting to relax and unwind from the stresses of the daily grind. Bud Colucci and "sidekick" Michelle make sure you feel like family during your stay. The views from the cabin of the Ohio river are stunning and the bonus of watching the barges slowly make their way up and down are priceless. Each year we road trip up and down Rt. 66 and I64 to find so many small towns and great diners. Already planning our 10th trip down home to the Moondance. See ya Soon Bud & Michelle

“Wonderful”
Reviewed 19 October 2015 for a stay in October 2015

This was a great place to stay. Bud and Michelle are the nicest people. The area is so quiet and serene. It was the most relaxing weekend of my life. The days were filled with sitting on the porch watching the barges going by. Beautiful place for a getaway.

“You WILL want to come back!”
Reviewed 25 January 2015 for a stay in January 2015

This was my first time here, but the second time for the rest of my girlfriends, I absolutely loved it! The owners were so down to earth and super nice, they made sure we had everything we needed. The cabin was beautiful, the layout, the decoration's, the view everything about this place is perfect! I would love to come back in the spring just to see the beautiful colors, the fall would be great too. Thank you again for an awesome time! Can't wait till next year!!!

The Moon Dance Cabin lives up to it's name when there is a full moon. The moonbeams do indeed dance on the River. And the sunrise...ahh! Your hosts, Bud & Michele, have a wonderful way of making you feel at home. Good people! Bud even sang Happy Birthday for my 77th birthday. How great is that! Can't wait to go back!

My wife and I happened upon this treasure spot by accident. As a family with two teenage boys we were leary of where to go. We decided on seclusion, no technology and beautiful natural surroundings. We got that and more. What a great place. Not only that, the ownership in the personification of one Bob and Michelle Colucci, saw that every thing we needed, they made sure we received. Unbelieveable surrounding and great folks. We plan to go back.

We had a great time at Moondance Cabin. As you open the door you are greeted to relaxing music playing on the radio. Great view of the river. So cool to see a barge pass by at nighttime! The hot tub was a great way to relax and still see a great view! The cabin had everything we needed including a gas grill and was super clean! You can watch birds feed from the hanging feeder on the deck and listen to the wind chimes! So relaxing! Our stay was perfect! Thanks Bud and Michelle! We'll see you guys soon!
