This is a beautiful 14-acre wooded area where you and your dog can enjoy serenity and lots of wildlife including but not limited to turkey, deer, and tons of birds. If you are lucky, maybe a morel mushroom or two depending on the time of year! All private area for the dogs to run or walk at their leisure. We also have a few streams running through the property and a 1-acre pond in the front. We are 35min from Bloomington, 20min from Morgan-Monroe state forest, and 20min from McCormicks creek.
It’s named in memory of our dog Max, who passed away from cancer. He loved this area so much. So, we decided to share with other dogs, who don’t have the luxury of running and sniffing and being a dog. Big pond in the back is drained do to a sand vain.
(PLEASE READ THOROUGHLY) Come enjoy our little paradise! Sugar Creek runs through the back of our property. You are welcome to enjoy it, just be careful while walking the trails. We do have chickens and turkeys on the front of the property. PLEASE leash your dogs until you are on the trail. It’s also very important to leave on time and not show up early. We have multiple guests a day and we need to let our dogs out as well during the day. If you do arrive early, please sit on the 1/4 mile driveway until your allotted time. If you are late, just send us a message if you would like to stay after your scheduled time to make up for being late. We may be out with our dogs doing chores in between guests. We want to continue to host for SniffSpot but we are having issues with people going over allotted time, allowing their dogs to chase our animals, and wandering around spots that are not for guests. All we ask is that guests are respectful of our animals and our property.

Please confirm date and time prior to reservation 😃 Hoosier’s on the ridge sits on 15 acres right next to Yellowwood State Forest! This land provides all terrain options for whatever your dog desires. You can stay close to your car in a field setting or walk deep into the valley to explore the creek bed on a hot day. I have built 4 campsites on the property (also for rent,) so there are 4 unique sitting spots, hammocks, tables, and fire pits. We have 2 golden retrievers (1M/1FM, both fixed) and a golden doodle (1m/fixed) who can either be put in the house during your visit or come socialize, whatever you prefer. We would be happy to accommodate large groups, dog social clubs, etc., just contact us. We hope to see you soon so that your dog may roam the hallowed ground of Brown County. -Hoosier’s on the Ridge
