RELAX IN COZY, VINTAGE AMISH COUNTRY RENTAL WITH LAKE AND BARN

Cleveland Farmhouse Rental Photos and Description

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms + Sunroom, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8-10)

Located among the rollings hills and active farms among the Amish and Yankee communities of Burton, Parkman and Middlefield, The Farm House is a cozy retreat, ideal for a relaxed country vacation for couples or small groups of friends and family. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs with the full bathroom and one bedroom and the half bath on the ground floor.

You can watch the Amish farmer cultivate his crops from the kitchen window, or if you are lucky you may see a doe and fawns approach the lake as you step out of the shower. The books and cable TV, DVDs and Videos, Internet and jigsaw puzzles, popcorn and the fireplace can turn rain and snow into a pleasant backdrop.

Bring your camera and binoculars and fishing pole. You can see birds from cardinals to wild canaries, and the lake was dredged and restocked a couple of years ago.

Our Amish care taker grew up in The Farm House before it became a vacation rental. You can hike past the lake, through the woods and down the dirt road to his home if you like or even watch the milking at the dairy farm nearby.

Keywords: The Farm House, Parkman, Ohio is a step back in time - with modern conveniences - on 100 acres of rolling hills, fields, woodlands and lake. Enjoy fireplace or the swing on the enclosed sunporch and listen to the clip clop of Amish buggy horses passing by.

I love this part of the country in all seasons and so it is a treat to have to come back a couple of times a year to take care of putting things in order and replenishing supplies. These trips make a wonderful change from my exciting work in an urban nonprofit on the west coast.

The Owner purchased this farmhouse in 1941

I love to share The Farm House with people who enjoy the peace there as much as I do. It has been in our family for 70 years now and we turned it into a vacation rental about 10 years ago.

My favorite walk is around the lake, checking out the turtles on the rock to the north, and trying not to startle the blue herons as they feed by the dam. I savor the silence in the woods, broken only by birdsong and the occasional dog bark far in the distance.

A Wonderful Retreat To Renew Friendships

There are five of us "girls", and we get together every summer to share a long weekend. Throughout our 27 years of catching up, we have finally found a "little piece of heaven" - and we're returning for our third consecutive year. The Farm House is a calm serene setting far enough from city life, but close enough to restaurants, shopping and other interesting activities. The property and home are both clean, well-furnished and maintained, and the owners are very easy and helpful to work with. An added bonus is that you get to observe the simple Amish life style without giving up modern conveniences. The Farm House has plenty of room for those cherished long-awaited weekends with special friends. And, the front porch is fabulous!

Tranquil Retreat

Just fabulous! Warm, inviting home with everything one could need. Lovely, enormous property with a lot of trees, lake, paths, and even fireflies at night in summer. So relaxing to unplug all the electronics for a while. No grocery store for several miles, so stop before you get there. The nearby cheese factory and small farmer's markets can't be beat. We've stayed at a lot of privately owned rentals and we give this one a 5-Star recommendation.

Beautiful, unique, historic retreat set in paradise

It's rare to find a place to rent that feels so much like home. The Farm House delivers that comfortable feeling, offers everything advertised and more. This beautifully appointed, renovated 19th century home is set on a stunning 100 acres in the countryside.
We came for an annual "mancation" for two 50+ plus friends and their grown sons.
The Farm House feels like you're stepping right into someone's home.
The kitchen, panty and fridge had everything we needed to turn our groceries into wonderful meals. Both of us love to cook and brought our favorites to prepare. We were saved more than once by the extensive pantry. The cupboards are filled with vintage serving trays, plates, pitchers and anything else you could think of which made meals even more special.
We were impressed how clean and roomy the house was and loved eating on the enclosed front porch watching the Amish come back and forth.
The local Amish caretakers were friendly, helpful and hardworking. They were available if we needed them and stopped over twice during our five days to be sure we were happy. I'm not sure I've ever seen cuter kids than the ones that followed mom across the street to The Farm House for a short visit. One barefoot little blond girl couldn't contain her smile as she headed back home with the rest of the family. It was one of those little moments we'll always remember from our stay.
For fishermen, the three acre lake is a dream. Largemouth averaged about 1.5 pounds with some exceeding two and they were hungry. The big fat bluegills fought hard and were huge. We were successful with rubber worms and nightcrawlers with bobbers for both species.
One of the best parts of the stay was exploring the woods. The extensive trail system is easy to navigate and filled with flora and fauna.
Town is only 10 minutes away if you want a restaurant meal, groceries or a little sightseeing, ect.
If you have trouble with stairs, you could stay in the first floor bedroom. Even though the old stairs have been completely refurbished, they retain a steep angle often seen in houses of this era. None of us had any problem at all with the stairs.
This is a place to simply relax. Sitting outside by the fire, watching the moon set and listening to the sounds of the forest made the stress of everyday life melt away.
We can't wait to comeback and hope to bring our wives in the fall for a long couples weekend.

Peaceful retreat

Three of us needed a comfortable place for a casual business retreat. The home was clean and the bedrooms spacious. The one full bath was very large and we had no problem taking turns for the shower or tub.

There is a calmness to the area and the sound and sight of horse drawn Amish carriages reminded us to slow down and find balance in our work and life. We had a nice little hike around the pond and through the tree behind the property.

We will return.

Glowing gem in the country!

Absolutely stunning property! We were blessed with staying here on Oct.7-Oct.9 for the always terrific Apple Butter Fest/Ox Roast in Burton. Perfect location out in the country but still minutes from towns, even had pizza delivered from Zeppe's (good eats)! The wonderful sun room at the front of the house is spacious and offers a wonderful view of the Amish as they travel up and down the road in their quaint horse-drawn buggies. Beautiful rich woodwork throughout the home, a roomy but cozy living room with a gorgeous fireplace and piano. The kitchen has everything, and then some, for the home chef like myself. Pots, pans, silverware, cups, glasses, plates, measuring utensils....this home has it all!!!! Large bedrooms with extremely comfortable beds!!! The pond, more like a small lake, offers some incredible fishing! I caught some very nice largemouths and probably some of THE BIGGEST bluegills that I have EVER caught! There were 6 adults and 3 children in our party and we never felt crowded due to the large size of this home! We've been attending the Apple Butter Fest for the past 6 years now and have stayed at Punderson S.P. but will always look for availability for this home from now on and hope that it is available!!!! For the reading folk, plenty of great books to peruse and many many quiet nooks to take them in. Did I mention that this home was also impeccably clean? We didn't even see a single "dust bunny" anywhere within the home!
All in all, one of the BEST rental properties that we have ever had the pleasure of staying in and sincerely look forward to revisiting...so much that we are looking at other dates just so we can stay in this little piece of paradise!!!
