The views from the Heron's Nest are amazing...large windows on the main level allow you a birds eye view of the barge traffic on the Ohio River plus bird feeder on the expansive wrap around porch encourages the birds to visit. Other than that, for the price we paid, we were sorely disappointed. The ladybug invasion was horrid. My daughter...

Management response:

This Traveler turned out to be planted by a rival. This is a false and misleading review, & we ask TripAdvisor & Flipkey to please remove this as untrue testimony. Please see current reviews from actual guests for our Beautiful Heron's Nest. Thank you. Bud.

Our family celebrated a special occasion together at the cabin. We found it easily per the directions supplied. It was well equipped, and we especially enjoyed the open kitchen/dining/living area where we cooked and enjoyed eating meals together all weekend. The setting was very nice, and we especially enjoyed the large back porch that allowed us to enjoy the outdoors...

Management response:

Family & Friends enjoying each other is really what matters most of all. If we are able to provide a Clean, Safe, & Comfortable accommodation that lends itself to Happy Celebration, it makes us Happily Celebrate also. We look forward to your return, & appreciate your warm words. Sincerely, Bud & Michelle.

Bud Colucci has several amazing log cabins that he built along the Ohio River. And I mean RIGHT on the river. The Hoosier National Forest, Louisville, Corydon, IN and...
