Doctor Goodall Retreat


Paoli, IN



See website for details.


We are located in the middle of Hoosier National Forest- 6 miles from Patoka Lake and 10 miles from French Lick and downtown Paoli, Indiana. Rustic cabin in the woods, but has indoor plumbing and plenty of outdoor space to explore and room to park vehicles. Bonus! You can bring your side by side or four wheeler. This retreat is named after my dad, Doctor(Doc) Goodall Keys- USMC Marine Raider and Woodworker Extraordinaire. Peaceful cabin and forest to explore. Close to Marengo Cave .

The space

You must be able to climb a ladder to get to the beds. It is very rustic, but does have indoor plumbing. Functional kitchen and bath. Has a comfortable screened in front porch to keep the bugs at bay. Also includes heat and air conditioning.

Guest access

Park anywhere in the backyard, but preferably on the gravel driveway. No contact check in. I will provide you with the code on the door, 24 hours before check in. Go in the back door, please.

Other things to note

please, no extra loud music after 11:00 pm. Just don’t want any neighbors complaining.

You can drive four wheelers in our camp areas. You can also bring a Razor, or if you have a boat, plenty of room to park it.
