Check in-out. Please check-in after 4PM and out by 11AM. If you need to adjust this, please ask and we will try to accommodate.

Pets. Dogs within reason are welcome. You should not allow them to roam.

Parking. There is a parking lot about 600’ from the cabin. Please walk to the cabin. The ground is soft.

Grounds. You may explore from but not into the tree line north (neighbors), to the road south and west to the tree line. You may fish in the pond by the shelter. Our record is a 23”, 7.5 pound bass with a 16” girth. Public restrooms nearby. We will clean the unit and linens and towels after your departure or weekly or upon your request. Trash can be placed in the dumpster locatedin the main parking lot.

Toilet. This is an incinerating toilet and you use it just like any other EXCEPT you need to put a liner in it prior to use. It can be used repeatedly and as often as needed. It runs for about an hour after the last flush and resets with each flush.   It will add some heat to the room! You can close the door and turn on the vent fan. We will empty the ash pan.

Bed. It can be either twins or a king size bed. A strap goes around the outside and a wedge in the middle. Alternate sheets in the closet if you want to convert.

Water. There is city water but the cabin drains are on a gray water system. Please conserve your water usage.  There is an outside spigot and hose and a hydrant.

Firepit. There is a fire pit but not always firewood.

TV-Internet.  HDTV Off Air Channels and DVD player. Use the INPUT remote button on the remote to change. WiFi is available on the ScoutCabin network and it is open. Not much band width. L

Please no smoking inside, smoke outside. 

Guests are responsible for damages other than normal wear and tear and facilities failures.  Notify management at check-in if there are damages. Damages and missing items will be repaired or replaced at management’s option and an itemized list of charges will be provided to the guest for payment.  Indiana Administrative Code applies.

Thank you for your visit. We hope you enjoy Pleasant Grove Farm as much as we do.
