About Shane Bocock: Owner / Property Manager
Ever since they were kids, both Shane and Melissa spent a lot of time outdoor in the woods on family camping trips, hiking, canoeing and fishing. It was always their dream to do the same with their kids. In 2006, Shane and Melissa had their first child, a beautiful baby boy. They decided that Shane would quit teaching high school chemistry and stay at home to take care of their son. About the same time, Shane and Melissa purchased a 42 acre plot of land near Warsaw, Ohio. During the next three years, the Bocock Family grew with the addition of two daughters and they spent a lot of time hiking, fishing, picking berries, camping, relaxing and saving money. During this time, they also thought how nice it would be to build a cabin that Shane--while still staying home with the kids--could rent out, allowing others to enjoy the beauty of the property. With the state of the economy, the idea was both exciting and scary. However, in the spring of 2011, Shane and Melissa felt the time was right. They wanted to build something special that would add to the already unique property. The Woodbury Cabin was started in June of 2011 and finished by the end of October the same year. Within days of listing the cabin rental online, calls started coming in. By 2014, with all dates filling up yearly at the Woodbury Cabin, Shane and Melissa decided it was time to add another rental. They came across a farmhouse that bordered the Mohican Forest in early 2015. They immediately fell in love with it, bought it, and turned it into a nightly vacation rental called the Mohican Farmhouse. In 2017, The lodge at Babble Brook was purchased near Mohican State Park as the third secluded vacation rental with a private pond!

What makes this Cabin unique
There are so many favorites with the Lodge, it's hard to decide what to do when you get there. The 40ft covered front porch has rockers and a relaxing swing overlooking the pond. The pond always seems to sparkle in the sunlight. The great room is so open and tall and the giant stone fireplace and huge mantle is such a nice place to gather with family and friends. The loft is a comfy spot to sit and read. The kitchen is spacious and the bar makes it easy to lay out a "buffet."
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
We had a great time fishing, playing pool and enjoying the gorgeous views from the front porch. The cabin was very comfortable. Shawn was very receptive and accommodating. This is a wonderful place to enjoy time with family and friends.
Nice accommodations for our family. It rained and snowed during our stay but we were able to stay busy inside and have a great weekend!
Very nice place. Friendly owner. Will absolutely rent it again
Wonderful cabin. Great location. Beautiful property. Definitely recommend.
The place is beautiful! Good location, good layout.
Fantastic get away!
This is such a wonderful property, picture perfect! It was great for our family trip. The grounds are just beautiful! The house is large enough to accommodate many people and to do so comfortably. The kitchen has all you need to make meals with both a large refrigerator and six burner gas stove. We spent the bulk of our time in the large great room but there is another large gathering area on the lower level. We enjoyed exploring the area (Mohican,Malabar) and everyone in my family was extremely pleased with our accommodations. We would go back in a heartbeat! Shane was very available and helpful with questions. Loved this place!
