We absolutely loved our stay.  The views are wonderful of the lake and everything was so clean!  Thanks for all the brochures and info on the area, it was very helpful. Thanks again for everything.  We hope to be back again sometime!

Cleanest Accommodations Ever.  Enjoyed watching the deer each evening at 7:30 in the backyard.

Dear Sharon and Joel, Thank you both for being such gracious hosts!  We spent another incredible week at your lovely cabin! The Overlook and the beauty of its surroundings is "good for our souls" as the beauty if nature entertains us daily and nightly.  We long to return quickly to this haven on the lake.  Thank you for the cleanliness of the cabin and your genuine southern hospitality!       P.S. Next year is only 12 months away!

ABSOLUTELY the best place to stay at Patoka Lake!  Lake view spectacular from the clean and comfortable cabin.  Looking forward to our next visit.

The parents of a close friend lost their home to a tornado this month so they stayed at the cabin until they could get back on their feet.

Exceeded my expectations for cleanliness, style & location. Great view. Loved watching the birds, rabbits, and deer.  Fishing was ok. Will be better after scouting it.

You could eat off the floors this cabin is so CLEAN!  Lovely! Comfortable! Amazing View!  A nature retreat for the soul!  Joel and Sharon make us feel so special!  Thank you for all the added touches - including clean towels for bathing.  You spoil us with your kindness.

Thank you both for yet another amazing stay at Patoka's Overlook Cabin!  We look forward to every minute spent enjoying the comforts of the cabin, the lovely view of Lake Patoka every morning when we awake, and the simple beauty of God's creation on display right outside our cabin... In the evening the fireflies (once again) gave us an outstanding performance.  Our sleep is sweet, and we awake always to another beautiful day.  Time spent at Patoka's Overlook Cabin - is time well spent!  Our only sorrow is in leaving-

What a beautiful cabin!  Very comfortable, every need anticipate-especially in the kitchen- well equipped! We had a wonderful time, very relaxing and the view is spectacular! Would love to come back. Love the privacy - off the beaten path.  Glad we found you on-line.

                    Bill & Sonya L.

A glass of wine and the view from your porch is a perfect end to the day.  Every time we wanted something and wondered if it was here (wine opener) it was!  Well stocked!!  We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.  Perfect location for our activities.

So clean I kept thinking the windows were open.  You've thought of everything. The only thing I couldn't find was a spatula.

Great accommodations!  Great View!  Loved that you had it fully supplied - sheets,  towels, kitchen amenities, the fire pit,  patio and deck and a yard big enough to play family games.

We have stayed in several cabins over the years, & this one has been the best.  We do so appreciate your thoughtfulness in providing everything we could have possibly needed.  Beautiful and peaceful place!    God Bless!

Your lovely cabin far exceeded our expectations!  The breath taking view b day of the lake and the fireflies filling the sky after dark are memories that will  make us eager to return to Patoka's Overlook Cabin!  Your lovely cabin is warm and welcoming down to the smallest details.  The moment you step inside, you can feel a special peacefulness it brings to your soul.  Thank you for all the extra-special touches and  the extreme cleanliness of the cabin.  We enjoyed the cabin so much, we found it difficult to venture outside!  Truly, we feel blessed and so fortunate to have discovered such a lovely place to celebrate our 19th wedding anniversary.  The memories will remain in our hearts until we return  -   Heart felt thanks.

Had a fabulous and relaxing time.  It was great to break up the winter and just get away for a couple of days.  The next time we come, the trees will be green and the fish will be jumping in our boat.
