Nearly two hundred years ago, David Chitwood traveled from Tennessee to stake his claim during the Land Act of 1820. He left what is now known as Daniel Boone State Forest to pursue 200 acres of rolling, wooded ground. The woods were so thick that it looked like nighttime under a canopy of trees. They had their work cut out for them as trees were logged to make way for farm ground. The Chitwood family cleared the land and built their wood cabins and barns, boiled tree sap into delicious maple syrup, harvested their crops, and meats, crafted quilts, furniture, and so much more.
Now, nearly 200 years later, the homestead still has a purpose. In true Hoosier hospitality fashion, the Chitwoods have offered their guests a piece of tradition. Eight of the nine wood cabins have been handcrafted by the owners. The wood cabins were constructed with native Indiana trees, built on a carved-out spot that feels like a park-like setting. The inside reflects their love of travels out West with artifacts and lodge-style cabin decor.
