History, elegance with that secluded farm country setting that brings families and friends together to create memories that will last a lifetime. CLEAN, CLEAN, CLEAN!!! We welcome you to check out our video walk through tour of the property in the video section. We also welcome you to bring your four legged family members along for the experience! We have owned and operated this beautiful cabin on HomeAway for the last 14 years. We offer you the best personalized service in every aspect of your stay.
History of the property; The original two story log cabin was built in 1833 on a land grant. It has been restored, updated and integrated with a new log cabin bringing the old and new together into one spacious yet cozy cabin. There is a total of 4500 square feet, with 5 rooms (9 beds) 3 baths with custom Amish built framing and cabinetry that is updated with all the amenities you could ever need!
We are literally ranked as one of the top vacation rentals in all of Ohio. We specialize in family and friend gatherings, giving all our guests a 5 star experience. I would describe our cabin experience as a sleepover with all the amenities. Bring everyone and enjoy being together in a peaceful and quiet country setting. This is close to perfect as you can get!
Relax in the hot tub on the enclosed back porch and watch the wild life, or sit before a crackling fire in the oversized family room fireplace. This cabin is a place to relax and enjoy the beautiful scenery, the ultimate place to unwind your mind and unplug. While technology is available, you will want to lay that phone down, close that computer and go on a hike of the property. Breathe that clean farm air and reinvigorate your spirit with the beautiful surroundings.
How would I describe the place? It’s a historic cabin with an Amish built addition. You get a feel of the history with the original cabin and the artistry from the timber frame work, all the custom doors and cabinetry in the addition. It is beautiful. This was a family home, we purchased it and made it a vacation rental. It’s completely updated, offers high end finishes, linens and an awesome kitchen anyone would envy. The kitchen is the heart of a home and this one will exceed your expectations. You will be pleasantly surprised at how well it is stocked; dinnerware, cookware, flatware, bakeware, all the kitchen gadgets and appliances, we have it all. If there’s something special you need for your stay, let me know and I will make sure you have it! The main question I get is about coffee makers; we have BOTH a Keurig and a standard coffee maker. I provide a generous supply of both K-pods and ground coffee with creamer and sugar. I also have a supply of spices, salt and pepper just in case you forgot yours. The beds are beyond comfortable, the linens are luxurious with plenty of blankets for warmth. All the bathrooms have plenty of towels, washcloths and travel toiletries. I provide all the toilet paper and paper towels and trash bags. There are laundry facilities and I even have laundry pods for your convenience. I would say this is a move in ready cabin, ready just for you!
TV and Internet; It has Dish Network satellite TV and Excede satellite wireless Internet. For those who don’t know, satellite internet is not DSL or like high speed internet. You cannot stream movies or videos but you can do basic internet searches and check email. To augment the internet, I do make available a Verizon Jet Pack that will give you 4G LTE and a cell phone booster. We do our absolute best to bring you the technology we can receive but remember we are in the country. So, there are limitations we have no control over. Verizon has the best of all carriers, enough where you can stream movies with Verizon reception. However, AT&T is the worst with minimal reception, this will have you running around the property looking for the most bars.
Your safety and security is our number one priority!! Most guests don’t consider this aspect when they are looking at properties. We have extra carbon monoxide detectors in every room on every level, fire extinguishers and smoke detectors in every space. We want you to feel that extra sense of safety when you stay with us. Don’t settle for anything less than the best!
Nearby property is available for deer hunting during hunting season and the cabin is near Woodbury Nature Preserve (public hunting) which is only 20 minutes away. Many of our guests have hunted Woodbury and never gone home empty handed. We also have about 200 acres available on a nearby farm that is rentable by the day.
The Surrounding Area: Set in the heart of Ohio farm country, the cabin sits on it's own 55 acre farm. The area is rural, and scenery consists of rolling hills, woods, farms and farm land. We are about as far away from the hectic life as you can get in Ohio. There are miles of gravel roads in the area with low traffic, suitable for biking and walking.
You are probably wondering what is there to do in this area? There are many activities from zip lines to winery tours. We will be happy to put together a list of what to do, just let us know what you're interested in.
The owners, Frank and Lisa Stahl, have another farm within 1.5 miles of the cabin. During the Spring (March -May) we have baby lambs and make maple syrup from the trees on the cabin grounds. We encourage you to enjoy the sights on both farms. Our amount of interaction with you is controlled by you. You can have the peace and quiet at the cabin or spend some time on the farm with us - it's up to you. We primarily keep the livestock at our farm, and are doing hay at the cabin. We are an authentic farming operation raising registered, grass fed shorthorn cattle and Katahdin Sheep. We also have horses, chickens, dogs, and cats. Typically we have around 25 cows and calves, and between 40 and 100 sheep.
