About Marianne Chaney

I am a Set Designer working in Los Angeles doing Film and TV. I have created a total retreat in Cincinnati that I enjoy whenever I can get back. When you travel the 15 minutes from the major beltway that connects all of Cincinnati, you are transformed to another place and time. Harbourwood is a private oasis that boasts a 30 acre tree farm with a lake and walking trails with apple trees. In the morning you will rise to the sun shining over the meadows. At night you will fall to sleep to crickets. The house completes your transformation with old wood planked floors and eclectic antiques. But, relax there is still wifi and cable!

Marianne Chaney purchased this house in 2009

Guestbook comments from the manager

We absolutely loved this place. The kids had so much fun running around the lake and roasting hotdogs and marshmallows on the fire pit. There were trails through the woods and we enjoyed taking walks and seeing the horses at the end of the drive. Harbourwood was secluded and fit all of our needs. Thank you so much.

Gorgeous setting for our wedding!

  • 5 of 5

I was at Harbourwood for 2 nights for our wedding on September 10th. It was so ideal to be able to come in the day before to set up and then be able to stay at the location for 2 nights, especially the night of the wedding after having a great time with all of our friends and family. Even though there was a crazy storm, it was still such a great time and everyone raved over how beautiful the house and grounds are. We were able to get some really great photos as well.

The listing description is definitely accurate. The amenities are great and it is so nice that the kitchen is fully stocked. Everything was very clean and neat. Preston was there to answer all of our questions and was available by phone whenever we needed him (even overnight). I would definitely recommend Harbourwood to anyone who is looking for a quiet, serene and gorgeous location to host a group of people. My friends and I plan on coming back here for a close-to-home getaway weekend in the near future.

Thank you Marianne and Preston for being so flexible and accommodating! We had a great time!

Family reunion

  • 5 of 5

Very nice property. We enjoyed our time there very much. Beautiful Property. If I had to give some small piece of advice, I would recommend to replace 1or 2 full size beds to queen.

Quirky but lovable

  • 4 of 5

While we were there we joked it was decorated by a pro but engineered by a mad man. From the two sets of glass doors on the master bedroom providing no privacy in two bedrooms, to the crazy light switches that turn lights on in completely different rooms, to the bathroom with the skylight to the dining room, to the kitchen cabinet containing the fuse panel, to the bedroom you have to go onto the porch or through the master bedroom to access... this space will keep you baffled. Despite, or perhaps because of, it's quirks (My litany was just a small sample.) it was a relaxing place to sit and enjoy just hanging out with friends and family. The area is peaceful and quiet and the grounds have many lovely paths to explore. The staff was both welcoming and helpful. There are swings for the kids and a cozy hot tub on a newly extended porch for the adults.

All in all we'd definitely recommend Harborwood Oasis.

Beautiful property

  • 4 of 5

Our family (14 people, 3 generations) thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The property is beautiful and had lots to keep both adults and kids entertained. The staff was great, and showed up immediately when we called with a minor problem. The house was roomy with multiple areas for people to spread out. The deck, "beach", and firepit were great places to hang out. There is also a state park about 10 minutes away (Stone Lick) that provided a beach and swimming perfect for the kids. There could be some minor repairs done inside the house to improve the experience, but overall, it is is a site we will consider in the future.

Incredible property with wonderful staff!

  • 5 of 5

We were looking for a place to hold a reunion of families we had travelled with, to adopt our daughters from China; and Harbourwood was the perfect spot! The house was spacious, clean, and had amazing character. The outside deck was incredible, and the artistic touches made it magical. What was even more amazing was the way the property drew the 6 girls (ages 13-15) outside to play, in a way you rarely see kids that age play. They hadn't seen each other in 6 years, yet they were drawn away from their electronics and became caught up in games of hide and seek, and badminton.

The only suggestions I would make for improvements, is to put curtains or a solid door between the front bedroom and the adjoining bathroom. We had 14 people and needed the use of the two full baths. It was awkward to walk in on the couple who slept in the large bedroom up front, to use the bathroom. Even a curtain on those French Doors would have made a difference. The other improvement would be to put a trundle bed or a futon in the room that currently has the single bed. The house was advertised to sleep 14, but it only had bed space for 13, and our 14th person had to sleep on the couch.

We would go back there in a heartbeat. We had such an amazing time together!!!
