Perfect! by Allison 03/25/2024
I have NOTHING but good things to say about our entire experience @ Duggas & Bones & our host! Before our trip I had a few questions & Eric was quick to respond to help us better prepare for our getaway. There were a total of 10 of us (3 families, 6 adults & 4 teens) Duggas & Bones
beyond exceeded our expectations! First thought upon arrival-the photos did not do this
place justice! All 10 of us fell in love w/ this little
slice of heaven immediately. We arrived back
home fully rested, restored, & very much heartbroken. Our only regret was not staying
longer! Accommodations were perfect for all 10
of us, & a bathroom in each bedroom with a
shower/tub combo is a luxury when traveling with so many people! There was 1 instance when I needed to reach out to Eric during our stay & he responded immediately & helped us resolve our issue right away! A couple things that would've made it even better: washer & dryer & working dishwasher. But that won't stop us from returning asap! It was PERFECT

It was fine as long as you wanted nothing else around . We found it a long way from the state park .
We did not find the marked trail till on our way out .
Airbnb Review #952917401618789810 #210957 by Review from Airbnb Guest #210957 08/09/2023
We had a group of 9 family members ranging from 12 to 86 and everyone had a wonderful time. Plenty of space for everyone. The fact that all bedrooms had attached bathroom was a HUGE hit. The kitchen was well laid out, and allowed a lot of busy cooks without feeling like we were falling over each other. The dining room table fit 9 with room to spare. The living room was roomy enough for family movie night. Internet connection and speed was great which made for happy teenagers. The basement game room was a bit small for the pool table. Having said that it was super popular and led to many game nights, but far away enough it didn't wake up others. The setting itself is peaceful/gorgeous in the Hoosier national forest. While previous reviews noted the steepness of the drive, it was paved and no one had problems. Our host Eric responded very promptly and very helpful. We would return without hesitation.

Great place for an extended family getaway by Tammy 06/16/2023
The cabin is a huge, comfortable space that was perfect for a getaway with my extended family of 8 (plus dog). The 5 bedrooms with their own bathrooms were great for three couples plus two young adults, giving everyone a bit of privacy when they wanted it. The large, well-stocked kitchen and 10-person dining table were perfect for family meals, as were the multiple charcoal grills. In the evening, the firepit was perfect for s'mores, with plenty of Adirondack chairs for everyone (plus some marshmallow sticks were provided). Truly a peaceful experience if you want to get away from the city/suburban life for a few days. That said, the WiFi was strong and worked perfectly throughout the house (which was good because we didn't have cell signal).

Annual family get-together by Diane 06/03/2023
Setting was beautiful. Can't say enough about how relaxing it was. Sitting on the front or side porch listening to the birds and being serenaded by the whippoorwill, watching the dove hatchlings and the happily feeding hummingbirds was amazing. Nice trail to the pond and around to the front of the property. Lots to do in the area.

Airbnb Review #881148799785636339 #197227 by Review from Airbnb Guest #197227 05/01/2023
This is not your regular cabin. At first you think you've been duped because the GPS tells you to the left and you don't see anything. Trust the directions cuz the road leads to heaven. Bring hiking gear...there's a trail right there. Space to be cozy and separated from the people getting on your nerves. The kitchen was so spacious that 7 of us hung out there and weren't crowded.

great place considering another trip.

GO THERE....ITS AWESOME
Great cabin in the woods by Nicole 04/23/2023

Nature sounds by Molly 04/14/2023
Plenty of different birds and nature to listen to. Loved the access to trails around the property but make sure to wear your hat, there were quite a few ticks. Peaceful, clean, and spacious inside. Hot tub was a nice addition. Would book again.
So much room for families! by Meritt 04/09/2023
We had a wonderful stay here with family. We loved that everyone had their own bathroom and plenty of space to spread out. The land was perfect for exploring.
We want to book again! by Christopher 03/27/2023
We had a group of ten over the weekend and it was great. Plenty of space and amenities; we want to come again next year.
Family Christmas in March at the cabin by Andrew 03/21/2023
Great cabin for families with children of all ages. Kitchen was great for everyone to be together while cooking or eating. Cabin has a great layout and there is plenty to do for everyone. Full baths for each bedroom is great. Trunks with toys and plenty of games and books was great. My Grandson played with the wrecker and firetruck the entire weekend!

Spent 5 days for a family get together with our adult children. We all loved the cabin. Exactly as described. Kitchen was fully stocked with every you need to prepare meals. Bedrooms with our own bathrooms was a big plus. Grounds are beautiful. Host was easy to communicate with and responded quickly. Hope to book again.
Great Time! by Steve 02/22/2023

Great find for our group to visit Brown county Indiana. Plenty of room, well stocked kitchen, close proximity to Brown County State Park. We loved the large outdoor firepit.

Relaxing and peaceful stay. Huge kitchen for cooking and huge dining room table perfect for playing games. Extra soft, cozy blankets in a trunk in the living room as well as a trunk full of kids toys. Multiple hiking trails and the hot tub was great. The kids loved putting puzzle together in the upstairs sitting room/loft area. Lots of books up there too. Shelves full of board games off of the kitchen. Lots of towels and jumbo sized body wash, shampoo and conditioner in each bathroom. Extra towels right inside the doorway leading out to the hot tub. I highly recommend this location for large families looking for private/separate spaces that also offers tons of room to be together.

We rented this cabin for my wife's birthday, and we had a wonderful time. The cabin itself is very spacious and laid out well, plus the grounds and location are very secluded and quiet. We were fortunate to have beautiful weather as well so that was a plus. Eric is a great host and was very accommodating to our needs and easy to communicate with. We would definitely consider renting here again.

Airbnb Review #673187890199706520 #161766 by Review from Airbnb Guest #161766 07/21/2022
This house was all that we could ask for! The common areas were perfect for us (8 adults, a toddler, & 2 dogs) and we all loved being able to sit together at the huge table in the kitchen! Even in the summer heat it was great to sit out on the front deck and cannot overstate how great it was for there to be an en suite bathroom for every bedroom. One note on the driveway: two of our three vehicles (the SUVs) made it up the hill but the other vehicle had to be left at the driveway entrance. Communication with Eric was excellent, Nashville and Brown County State Park were only a 25 minute drive away and well worth exploring. The next time we are in the area we will be see if we can stay here again!
Wonderful Stay! by Jessica 07/14/2022

Looking for a large lodge/house near Brown County, Indiana? This spot is amazing for larger groups. We are a group of 8 - this lodge has room to sit together at the table during meals, enough sitting in the living room, and on either of the porches. The front porch is a refuge from the busyness of life and is such a lovely view. Only one thing to note the driveway up to the house is quite a steep gravel road. It is very nicely maintained, but could be a bit intimidating. We would definitely stay here again!
AMAZING by Rebecca 04/07/2022
We stayed at Duggas and Bones. (4/3/22-4/7) it was AMAZING!!!! We AB&B often and this kitchen was the most well appointed of any we have stayed in. GREAT LOCATION! Amazing (SUPER CLEAN) rooms and common areas. Just an all around fabulous place and vacation! (Large hot tub was a bonus!)

We had a last-minute change of plans and needed a place for a weekend celebration for our large group. Moondance Vacation Homes had exactly what we needed and were able to get us booked and on our way to the Lodge in the same day. The lodge was amazing, and the trip ended up better than we could have imagined. Thanks to them for being there for us!
