This was the second time that we stayed at Goose Pond and we will be coming back for sure! Very enjoyable and relaxing, nice and peaceful. The cottage is very pretty and has everything you need and more. The pond is a plus. Enjoyed every minute there.

I couldn't be more pleased with the Goose Pond Cottage. It was perfect for 3 of us and the bird feeder was a wonderful touch. My best photos were taken from the front porch. I would definitely return as well as recommend it to any of my friends interested in exploring that part of Indiana.

We arrived on Monday evening & stayed through Thursday morning. Everything about the cabin and grounds were wonderful. "Rufus" made it even more special. He managed to come see us about 15 minutes before we left. We couldn't have asked for a more peaceful, relaxing time. From all the cranes (and others) to the owl that landed right in front of us in the evening, it was great! We most definitely will return only in the spring when we can enjoy the "Maze" and all it offers.

Thank you for the wonderful comments. There are over 500 species of birds in the Goose Pond and we see some unusual types. Always welcome. Our Quail Run Cottage is also available now.

This is the perfect place to just get away from the worries of everyday life with your partner. Its very small and cozy, with most the amenities needed to cook meals there, and also places to eat not too far away as well. The gravel road you travel on for a couple miles can be a little rough, but the drive is totally worth it. The pond outside is very nice, plenty of frogs and fish jumping around. All around a great way to enjoy a romantic weekend with your significant other.

I would have to say the owners of this cabin have out done themselves. Every detail is PERFECT! We can not wait to take another vacation to this cabin when the weather is warm to do some fishing in the private pond. Very private location, very peaceful & relaxing getaway....you wont be disappointed!

About the neighbourhood
Approximately 3 miles south of Linton (Indiana's 10th best place to live!) Pleasant Grove Farm is a place like no other with shopping and medical facilities just minutes away. Birding. Actually located in the Goose Pond FWA, its eight thousand acres have the largest bird count in Indiana. It is one of 26 International Important Bird Areas. Fishing: The small pond in front of the cottage is in its 3rd year after stocking and has mostly small fish. The larger lake across the road is 15 years old and you can fish there. That is where the shelter is and the public restrooms. The record in it caught 2 weeks ago was a 23', 7.5 pound bass with a 16' girth. Most bass are 15'. The crappie are good size and the redear about 1-1.5' thick. Some hand sized bluegill. No license required in these 2...
