UNIQUE PRIVATE FAMILY RETREAT/ROMANTIC GETAWAY IN FOREST

Brush Creek State Forest House Rental Photos and Description

Full 3-Level House (not a cabin!), 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths (Sleeps 10)

Escape to your own luxury hideaway, The ''Sanctuary of Adams County'' -- just a short drive from Cincinnati, Columbus & Dayton. An easy drive from Lexington, KY, Charleston, WV or Indianapolis, IN. This is NOT just another 'cookie-cutter' cabin. This is a 3-FLOOR, FULL-SIZED CUSTOM HOME situated on 8+ acres of total privacy. Just 60 feet off your front porch is beautiful Brush Creek Forest, comprising over 12,000 acres! Don't be hassled by owners that live on site like other properties.

The main floor features a custom kitchen, hardwood floors, a floor-to-ceiling stone fireplace, arched windows & king-sized bedroom. A private rear deck stretches the length of the home, overlooks the winding creek & features both charcoal & gas grills.

The loft, with its full-sized bed, features its own Jacuzzi tub plus a double futon.

The lower level features 2 bedrooms, full bath, washer/dryer, & lounge area complete with TV, Wii, games & books.

Bring the entire family or just a friend for your home-away-from-home ''Staycation'' or a romantic weekend escape! You can stay in touch with hi-speed internet/FREE WiFi.

You'll feel hundreds of miles away but you're really only minutes away. Just a short drive leads you to Miller's Amish Market. Homemade doughnuts and mouth-watering turnovers and other sweet treats await you. Enjoy them there and bring some back with you. Or, visit famous Serpent Mound or Ft. Hill Indian Earth Works, then head back to your home in the hardwoods and relax on the covered front porch. Or just stay indoors, light a fire, relax and do nothing! We have just added an awesome 20'x20' fire pit in the woods surrounded by boulders, and a 24'x20' concrete patio complete with a wood stove!

Stay for two nights or as long as you wish. We are priced right (as low as $16 per person per night) so you can afford to come back time and time again. You are always welcome here!

A relaxing place to unwind and just enjoy the woods.

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at the Brush Creek Cabin for two nights in mid-May, 2014 and our only regret is that we couldn't stay longer. This cabin lived up to all of our expectations. It was comfortable, immaculate, well stocked with supplies, linens, nice-to-have items such as coffee and popcorn, etc., etc. The location is so beautiful that I could feel myself unwinding as I sat on the deck and watched the trees swaying in the breeze, and listened to the birds and spring peepers. We simply loved our stay. It is near to great hiking and historic sites, such as the Great Serpent Mound, but we couldn't tear ourselves away from the deck and the beautiful trees. We'll have to see those things next time.

We have been doing a girls weekend away for the past 6 years and the "Sanctuary" is now on the top of our list of awesome places! The property is very private and the owners provivde nearly everything but your food!

The house and surrounding area is beautiful! We loved the sanctuary!

Family Christmas Gathering

  • 4 of 5
This spacious home with a well-equipped kitchen was the perfect gathering spot for us to connect with our married children coming from eastern Kentucky, central PA and the Cinncinnati area. There was plenty of sleeping and comfy relaxing space! The secluded wooded location allowed us to enjoy a family hike as well! We had a great time together and will likely return. Our son-in-law will be keeping this place in mind for some hunting group stays as well.

The home was just a described; beautifully decorated, clean and secluded in a lovely setting.The photos were just as we found it to be. Everything was clean an in good working order. The owners were very helpful in giving us directions to the home and suggestions on activities and destinations in the area. I would most definitely recommend this property to my firiends. We are looking forward to a return visit!

Guys trip

  • 5 of 5
We chose The Sanctuary for our annual guys trip. We could not have made a better choice! Last year we rented an expensive cabin in Hocking Hills and thought we were spoiled. As soon as we pulled up the drive to the house it was as if we were back in Hockin Hills only better. Last year we had neighbors all around. The Sanctuary is totally secluded. The house was every bit as nice and clean as our cabin in HH but with tons of extras! They provide just about everything you need to have a great, carefree weekend for an amazing price. The best part is how close they are to Cinci. We caught some of the cleanest catfish we've ever seen out of the pond and enjoyed awesome fires at the huge fire pit area. Honestly could not have asked for a better weekend. After the first night we decided we did not need to look for any other spot for our annual trip. The Sanctuary will be our go to place! Thanks to Lee and Deb for providing such a cool spot to getaway!

Seclusion

  • 4 of 5
The Sanctuary is truly secluded! You're literally in the middle of the forest, it's a lovely setting. We had a wonderful family gathering. Our children, grandchildren , niece and husband joined us a few days at a time from IL, KY, and PA. There was plenty of room for all to spread out.
The house was clean which was greatly appreciated. The kitchen was nicely stocked except for the frying pans which were in very poor condition ,so you probably should bring your own.
The firepit, cornhole game, and wii were enjoyed by all. Our little grandsons were looking forward to playing in the creek and fishing. Unfortunately the creek and pond are seasonal. The picture of the creek that you cross going into the Sanctuary is not the creek on their property. They do have a creek but in Aug. it was very small. The pond also looked to be about half of what the lovely picture on their website showed . A stocked pond seemed almost a guarantee for the kids to catch fish but "not a bite."
There is a lovely area for the children to run around in down by the pond but not near the house. If you have any toddlers or young children just be alerted that the stone driveway and cement patio are around the house and not grass. We had many brush burns, scrapes , cuts, and bruises. Also the stairs to the loft are quite steep so perhaps a baby gate might be useful.
It's a very lovely home in an amazing setting for a fair price. You definitely will not be disappointed if you rent the Sanctuary.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the great review! The Sanctuary really is secluded - not another home in sight. We purchased brand new T-fal frying pans for your next visit. Thanks for keeping us updated.

We know the weather can really put a damper on things but there's nothing you can do about Mother Nature. Children can play on the grass right off the back porch patio, or any of the other grassy areas.

It's a shame you didn't have any bites while fishing, but the next guests caught and released 5 catfish.

Thanks for letting people know they will not be disappointed if they rent The Sanctuary. Thanks, Lee and Deb

Total privacy - not another home in sight! House located right next to the forest at the foot of Tener Mountain, unlike any other place! Full-size 3-level home - not just another 'cookie-cutter' cabin. Day trips include famous Serpent Mound and Fort Hill to solve their mysteries of Indian culture. Visit Long's Retreat and Mineral Springs for swimming, slides, gamerooms, and other family fun! Miller's Amish and Kiem's Amish stores offer sweet treats and the best-built furniture around. Keep an eye out for horse-drawn buggies! For more culture, visit The Rankin House...one of the most famous underground railroad sites in Ohio. Harriet Beecher Stowe based the character 'Elisa' on a female slave who escaped from Kentucky across a frozen Ohio river to the Rankin House with her child in her arms. Also the Infamous Morgan's Raiders terrorized locals with their quest to round-up slaves who had fled to this area. HISTORY--WE GOT IT!
