Welcome to the rolling hills of Southern Indiana. Your escape from the day to day grind awaits. Our cabin was built in the 1800's and reassembled (with modern conveniences) in 1996. Ideal for the hunter, hiker, boater or fisherman. Thousands of acres of Hoosier National Forest, the Ohio River and it's tributaries all provide a one of a kind outdoor recreation experience. Or you can just sit next to the fire, enjoy the night sky and relax! Either way... Welcome to Derby.
Stove, refrigerator, washer & dryer, coffee pot, blender, cooking ware, plates, glasses, mugs, utensils, etc. Firewood provided for fireplace and outdoor fire ring.
The cabin is about 1.5 miles from Derby. Derby is a quiet little river town which boasts of the Derby Community Center, The Derby Market, Smackwater Cove Bar and Grill and the Derby boat ramp. But for the most part we are surrounded by Hoosier National Forest and the Ohio River. About 20 minutes outside of Tell City. About 45 minutes away from Holiday World. About 1 hour away from Louisville, KY. About 1 hour away from Evansville, IN. About 2.5 hours away from Indianapolis.
  • Our 5th or 6th visit & it was amazing as always. Deanna & Tom always make us feel like family. It was our first time being able to use the fireplace (even our kids were excited about using the fireplace).. There is absolutely nothing bad to say about the Derby Escape. It's a great place for my family and myself to go decompress & spend time together as a family. We've made many memories here and I cant wait to make more.

  • Cleaner than a nice hotel!! Absolutely loved our stay! Can’t wait for a reason to go back!

    Michael2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Cozy and relaxing. A great place to unwind by the fire or sip coffee on the porch!

  • If you want a place to stay in the woods, this is it. It is a classic rustic cabin but with modern amenities. The wood fireplace is really great and works very well, which you have to have for that memorable woods experience. It’s very private and quiet. Internet can be a little spotty here, but we didn’t come out here to stay connected. It was our wonderful three day get away. You really can’t go wrong here.

  • Above and beyond our expectations.

  • Derby Escape was exactly the escape we were looking for. It was perfect for a quiet getaway. Walking in, we were greeted by the smell of a wood fire and immediately charmed by this cozy space. We enjoyed coffee on the front porch and glasses of wine (from the local Blue Heron winery) in front of the fire place. Location was great! Perfect privacy off the beaten path but easy to get to.

    Kathy2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • We loved our stay at the cabin. We were hoping to be away from people for the weekend and this was perfect! The hill had plenty of trees for hammocks and a great front porch for just sitting around and drinking coffee! Plus all the sounds of nature (and occasional boat/barge on the river!)

  • Above and beyond expectations. The Cabin was so beautiful and super clean. Bed and pillows were very comfortable which is a big deal for me. This Cabin is the perfect get away. So cozy and relaxing. Beautiful views, people in the town are very nice as well. The cabin is very secluded and private. Huge yard. Just amazing. Sonya and her husband were very attentive. Love their hospitality. This was an unforgettable experience.

  • beautiful cabin in a quite small town, amazing host. will be coming back soon!

    Christopher2019-11-08T00:00:00Z
  • This is as a beautiful place and it exceeded our expectations. We enjoyed our relaxing getaway from the busy city life and couldn’t have asked for a better host!

    Jacob2019-07-14T00:00:00Z
  • Sonya's place is amazing for a weekend getaway! The cabin is a mix of old and new and is furnished very nicely. There are many small touches that she has thought of to make your stay very comfortable. We really enjoyed sitting on the deck and just taking in the beautiful surroundings. I will definitely be looking here for a winter stay as I am sure it is wonderful with snow covering.

    Robert2019-07-01T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place to unwind and relax while also enjoying hiking and kayaking. Great hosts and very accommodating. Hope to return someday.

    Penny2019-06-09T00:00:00Z
  • Hammock’s hideaway is the perfect place for a relaxing cabin retreat. Be warned though, there is no WiFi service or stable cellular reception - so it really is off the grid. My partner Chris and I had the most wonderful time kayaking on oil creek (Sonya even let us use their kayaks!), making campfires and sitting out on the gorgeous porch and enjoying the scenery. Also, down the road is the Derby general store and Smackwater Cove restaurant so there are some resources available. The cabin itself was expertly decorated and designed with so much love and character. We will definitely be staying here again!

    Looking to get away from the fast paced life? This cozy 2-story, 2 bedroom, 1.5 bath, rustic log cabin, sits on 4 acres tucked against the hills just outside Indiana's Hoosier National Forest in the Ohio River Valley. Kick back on the decks, relax in our hot tub, or watch the fire dance in the outdoor fire pit. Calm, tranquil, SERENITY!
    The main area of the cabin is constructed from original hand hued logs that are over 100 years old. An addition was added to the rear of the cabin to add modern amenities like a kitchen, indoor restrooms, and a guest bedroom. As you would assume, the floors squeak and the floor plan is very open. All part of the cabin charm. The air condition keeps you cool in the summer, the furnace keeps you warm in the winter, and the hot tub allows you to relax at all times.
    Our cabin sits right outside the Hoosier National Forest which offers 84 miles of hiking trails with 50 miles of them open to horses. From the cabin you are less than a 10 minute walk from the Mogan Ridge East trail head and a short drive to many others. If you enjoy fishing and boating, you are 5 minutes from the Derby Boat Ramp giving you easy access to the Ohio River. The most common fish caught are bluegill, redear, bass, and catfish. There is a small park located in Derby just a few minutes down the road. There are basketball courts, swings, slides, a shelter house, and a beautiful view for the parents while watching the children play.
  • Definitely expect a nice time of relaxation & quietness with a beautiful view !

    Jasmine2020-01-02T00:00:00Z

  • This was my 2nd time staying and was just as pleasant and peaceful as the 1st.

    Brandy2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Shane’s cabin during our mini-moon stay and it was the peaceful getaway we had hoped for! The hot tub jacuzzi was definitely a highlight, as was the fire pit with wood provided on the property. The hosts replied quickly if we ever had any questions. The market down the road is also helpful and has wonderful local salsas to try!

    Kelsey2019-10-16T00:00:00Z
  • I cannot day enough good things about our stay. The cabin has great amenities, but a big bonus included a wide variety of games for all ages and a great washer and dryer. Both are priceless on a rainy day!! Bedding was cozy and plenty of extra blankets and pillows if needed. Shane was easy to communicate with and flexible with us when we had to change dates! We can’t wait to stay again.

    Laura2019-10-12T00:00:00Z
  • We had a lovely time at this cabin! A nice, fairly secluded getaway.

    Originally constructed in the 1850s, the cabins were moved to where they stand today, on a bluff overlooking Oil Creek. The scenery is teeming with wildlife, as well as perennial flowers. You're in the midst of 60,000 acres of Hoosier National Forest, so you'll be able to hike along trails in one of the hilliest and most forested counties in the state. Come stay with us for a little while, and live the way you were meant to live.

    Welcome to the Ohio River Retreat! Located directly on the Ohio River, in the Hoosier National Forest, you're never far away from the great outdoors. This house offers three bedrooms and two full bathrooms. There's also a loft with a full sized futon if needed. The kitchen is fully stocked (except for food of course) for all your cooking needs. There is a second driveway on the other side of our road that is available for extra cars or to park a boat. Located about 50 minutes from Holiday World.
    The front door has a code lock and you will be given your own code prior to your stay. As there is no need for anyone to let you in, you can arrive at any time. There are four spacious decks to choose from in the back of the house, each with an amazing view of the Ohio river, especially at sunrise. The lower deck has a built in fire pit that is perfect for roasting marshmallows.
    Even though we are located just 20 minutes off the main highway, the river retreat is very peaceful without feeling isolated. We are on a private dead end road that has just 10 other vacation homes. There is a public boat ramp at the top of our road, which is seldom used by anyone outside the area. The closest restaurant is Smackwater Cove, about 15 minutes away in Derby. Another restaurant, Marcy's, is about 20 minutes away in Leopold. Both menus are located in the kitchen for you to check out. Also, in Derby, is a great little general store that stocks most of your basic food needs and a few extras if needed. They also offer take-and-bake pizzas.
  • This place was perfect for a weekend getaway. Definitely would return. Corinne was amazing and responded very quickly to any and all questions.

    Madeline2020-02-15T00:00:00Z
  • This river house far exceeded expectations in general. Easy to find, accessible, peaceful, bright and very relaxing. It was equipped like my own house, having essentially everything you could need. It felt very much like a home and the views were spectacular. Very grateful for the experience and for Corinne being so accommodating with our dogs. Would love to visit again one day!

    Andrea2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Once you get here, it truly feels like a private oasis. So many personal touches and well stocked, it makes it feel like it is your own private vacation home. We loved all the amazing views. Watching the barges pass and the serenity of it all. Also loved the holiday touches. The entire family enjoyed this home and had a great time. Thank you.

    Nicole2019-12-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a nicely styled, cozy space with an amazing view. Corinne provides a lot of nice amenities for her guests and puts a lot of thought into their experience.

    Kristi2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • This place was a fabulous location! Somewhat secluded, among beautiful fall foliage and on the Ohio river. A hidden gem! The hosts were so accommodating, very quick to reply and very helpful. The home was very clean and comfortable with a touch of home. It was perfect for the fall family getaway we were seeking. We would definitely stay here again!!

    Chelsea2019-10-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing views, responsive host, and a perfect place to stay for families!

  • The cabin was perfect! Tammy was so easy to work with and very accommodating! We highly recommend.

    Briana2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our much needed weekend getaway. Even in the winter, it was so lovely being right on the river. The cabin was very clean and comfortable. The host was very responsive and helpful!

    Dawn2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This is a great cabin. It is very clean, quiet and a wonderful space to relax in. We cooked every meal in the kitchen and on the grill. The outdoor deck area is the best. We spent so much time in the hot tub enjoying the river view and waiving to the barges as they floated by. It was lovely to disconnect from our busy lives and enjoy the surroundings and each other. Our furry baby appreciated being able to come with us. I highly recommend this home.

    Julie2019-11-11T00:00:00Z
  • One of the better cabins we have stayed in. Exceeded our expectations. Wish we would have stayed another night. Not disappointed at all.

    Jack2019-10-18T00:00:00Z
  • Was amazing! Great place and host !

    Gage2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • As soon as we pulled in the driveway we felt happy. We walked in and all smiles were on our families faces. We unloaded car and immediately put the hammocks up. We went into town and ate at smack water cove. Waitress was generous, but food was ok, fast food type food. Derby general store was awesome but pricey. We made several trips. Owner was so friendly and helpful with area. Call ahead for the horse riding schedule, u need cash or check. Lovely place to watch sunrise i took many pictures to capture. Kids loved the rope swing and hammocks we brought. Hot tub was a hit for all. Loved the fire pit area. I enjoyed sitting on table reading and watching the barges. Decore was nice and updated. Clean and well stocked kitchen for plates, glass wear, utensils, pots and pans. Nice beds not too hard. Nice hot water for showers. Nothing bad to say at all. Nice layout for siblings who want own space and parents to have privacy as well. Cant wait till next years visit.

    Amber2019-09-29T00:00:00Z
  • Such a cozy little place. The kids loved it. The views were breath taking. Loved the sun rises!!!

    This waterfront property offers a rustic cabin situated on 5 beautiful acres of land on Deer Creek Lake near Rocky Point, Indiana. It is a perfect rental for small families, Holiday World guests, fishermen, and HUNTERS coming to the area for a retreat from their busy lives. It provides a scenic and private location.
    This is an older, rustic cabin that we have been slowly updating. We have recently remodeled the kitchen and bathroom. We are slowly making additional improvements. The selling point of this rental is, by far, the land and private location. This is an one-of-a-kind, gated property that sits on Deer Creek Lake. We encourage you to sit on the deck, sipping your morning coffee and enjoy the view... or lay by the fireplace while watching your favorite movie. Another option to consider is the hot tub area, which is connected to a beautiful rustic barn. The covered hot tub area is great for cold and/or rainy days as it allows you to still enjoy the beautiful outdoors.
    Five private, spacious waterfront acres with a beautiful view and access of Deer Creek Lake.
  • Robert's place is a perfect spot for a getaway. Quiet area to enjoy nature, and the hot tub is a great way to relax in the evening with a fire going in the fire pit. Definitely going to keep this place on my list for a return trip!

    Zachary2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • What a hidden gem in Southern Indiana! The space is welcoming and invites you to relax in a secluded setting while surrounded by nature. Home is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay with views over the water. Hot tub is huge, clean, and private. If you come in the winter, like us, you too will want a return trip when we can get out on the water!! Don’t miss the Blue Heron Winery and Celtic cross- has amazing views of the Ohio! And if you are craving a full buffet of comfort food then drive over to Tell City and have a meal at The Patio. You will love this place, book it!

    Michelle2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is an excellent getaway cabin with a great host! This is actually our third stay at this particular cabin, and we plan to continue coming back. Highly recommended for couples, families, or just a group of friends. Since our last stay, Rob has installed a cell phone booster in the cabin and I can attest that it works exceptionally well. Prior trips we had virtually no signal within the cabin, but now has great signal all over. Always nice to see that Rob is working to make our stays better every time we come. The cabin was well-stocked with everything we needed (towels, hand soap, dishwasher pods, laundry facilities, and the kitchen has all the dishes and cooking utensils to prepare and serve a meal). Looking forward to our next visit—thanks, Rob!

    Amanda2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • We love Rob's cabin! This trip was our third time staying in the last three years! It is always a relaxing weekend with the wonderful amenities and cozy touches that Rob makes. We love enjoying the fireplace and hot tub during the winter time. Robert makes it so easy to check in and check out. Thanks again for another great stay! Would recommend this spot to anyone looking for a nice weekend away with family, friends and loved ones!

    Emmy2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Deer Creek Lake cabin was amazing. We are from Chicago suburbs and met family from Lousiville for a relaxing weekend. Fishing, hot tub, playing games, exploring the local community and spending time unwinding was worth the drive! Would definitely recommend this venue to reconnect with loved ones. Host was extremely hospitable. ❤

    Barbara2019-12-02T00:00:00Z

  • Bud's cabins are spotless. Everything works. The hospitality was amazing. Gorgeous location. If you find yourself walking down the road you may run upon a few dogs, usually a few barks and they are ready for some scratching, which could take a couple minutes. The barges run quite frequently, and the view is one of the best along the river.

  • This cabin was a fantastic weekend getaway spot. It was beautifully laid out, with living spaces on the main level, and basement level. There was 8 of us and no one ever felt cramped, and the pool table and hot tub provided a fun atmosphere. The kitchen was fully stocked with plates, cups, coffee mugs, and pots and pans.

    Brittany2019-02-10T00:00:00Z
  • We had an amazing trip to this cabin in Magnet. Despite the listing saying that some essential amenities might not be provided, the house had just about everything we needed, including soap for the dishwasher. We brought extra paper towels and a ton of food and barely had to leave the property, which was great since this place is remote! There are other homes along the street, but groceries (especially beer) and restaurants are few and far between. The house sits at a bend in the Ohio river so the water is incredibly smooth and there was very little current. When kayaking, it was hard to tell if you were going up stream or down stream. It was very smooth and easy either way. The river views from the wrap around deck were also stunning in the morning when a light fog would settle over the river. The cabin was well stocked, very clean, had good wifi, and the sleeping arrangements were as advertised. We thoroughly enjoyed the hot tub and pool tables, and most of our meals were cooked on the nice gas grill (propane provided by host). All around a great place to stay if you want to be away from the world for some hiking, kayaking/swimming, and relaxing.

  • If you want to get away from your busy life, rent one of these cabins. You are out in Gods country. We saw several deer. The views were amazing. This cabin is perfect for 3 couples, but along with several kids. My grandkids loved the basement with the bunk beds. The hot tub was clean and so relaxing. The kitchen is well stocked with dishes. Plenty of towels and linens. I believe you will enjoy the cabin as much as my family did.
