A time to celebrate.......a destination to remember. We are two artistic retirees who love history, gardens, flowers, art, music, and nature. We are Barbara Brookie White, an artist and portrait painter, Alan B White-Pianist on social media.
The Vacation Cottage is a charming 1964 house that is surrounded by woods, nature trails, and sits over a spring fed, bubbling creek, It is fully equipped so that you are self sufficient and have a house key to come and go as you please. This offers you a private place to get away from daily worries and work, to have peace and quiet or explore creeks and rocks that is Indiana's most scenic, natural setting. Go back to work refreshed and recharged.
