Sandusky Cabin Rental Photos and Description
Cozy and relaxing country setting in a repurposed, reclaimed cabin
Thank You to all our guests for an incredible 2014 season. It's been fun getting to know new friends and seeing many of you again as repeat guests! So now we must close Dancing Fox for it's long winters nap, however will open again May of 2015. We are accepting reservations for the 2015 season.
Dancing Fox Cabin is in keeping with our circa 1842 farmstead home ambiance. Often early settlers would erect a simple cabin on the same property prior to building a more permanent home and Dancing Fox Cabin is a reflection and our vision of one of those early structures.
With it’s rural locale setting, simple shed roof style outline, barn wood exterior cladding, interior walls sheathed in white-washed boards, wide-plank pine flooring, rustic hand-made kitchen cabinetry and barn beam framing….you will be enveloped by the subtle feelings of our pioneers, a sense of soothing well-being and one of a simpler more calmer lifestyle with some modern amenities.
The Dancing Fox Cabin is your opportunity to experience what most lodging in Ohio doesn't offer. Imagine as you follow its pathway to your front porch, stepping across the threshold of your original swinging barn door entry and then begin feasting your eyes, spirit and senses upon … another time and another place.
Our settler-style cabin may become an unforgettable highlight of your visit to our area. Our initial goal was to utilize in the building process with as many reclaimed,
recycled, vintage and antique materials in the construction of this self-built structure. To this end we were quite successful. We estimate that approximately 95% of its total materials have been salvaged and re-purposed from various sources in northern Ohio! The blending of all these various components into a harmonious finished product is one that is memorable, soothing, and yet to many, exciting. As different as the exterior’s first impression may be, the cabin’s interior is where your visual senses will be captivated. Wherever your eyes and hands rove you will discover subtly aged textures, hand created items and coordinated color palettes that enhance the feelings of rustic relaxation. These time worn nuances now re-shed their light from simpler by-gone days and are captured by our cabin’s cozy environment. The lasting effect is one you won't forget. “Memories are made at the Dancing Fox Cabin.”
Even though our cabin is not set in the deep woods nor is it secluded, our “off the beaten path” farmland environment removes you from both the traffic and people congestion normally associated with other vacation rentals. Our centralized location is very convenient to the multitudes of attractions, events and activities found throughout the entire north central Ohio region. Lake Erie’s south shore, Cedar Point Amusement Park, fishing, boating, antique shops, dining, golfing, wineries and festivals are all within quick and easy driving distances. Major highways such as the Ohio Turnpike, U.S. State Rt. 20 and others are practically at your doorstep and conveniences for groceries and other neccessities are only minutes away.

Guestbook comments from the owner
Thank you both for the wonderful hospitality. We honestly didn't want to leave, but we can say we will be back. We came here meeting as complete strangers and we are leaving as family. We spent our 8th Anniversary here and I have to say it was the most enjoyable one. The cabin was very warm and welcoming and a beautiful place. We fell in love with it. Thank you for having a place we can call our home away from home.
We love you both!
