About Darla Minamyer

We were thrilled when we stumbled across this 50 plus acre property on our regular Hocking Hills travels to the State Parks. My husband and I, our two sons live and work in the city of Columbus, just one hour away.

We have enjoyed many trips to the Hocking Hills over the years, and wanted a place to gather with friends and family not too far of a drive! Mission accomplished when we found the Beagle Hill Lodge (farmhouse). It is so close to all the region has to offer. A short car ride to Old Man's Cave, Cedar Falls, The Rock House, Ash Cave, hiking trails, ATV trails, fishing, kayaking, spa services, zip lining, our favorite local restaurant The Inn at Cedar Falls, we knew we had to jump on this property or it would be gone! The lay out of the land is so peaceful and relaxing. My favorite pass time is watching the wild turkeys and plentiful deer stroll by while I am sitting on the front porch swing. We stay at Beagle Hill several times each year, and rent it to tourists when we aren't able to go ourselves. We hope others enjoy it as much as we do! We have met so many nice people along the way, regulars that stay at our home every year. The Hocking Hills is my very favorite destination in Ohio, and I consider myself lucky I was in the right place at the right time when the property became available for purchase.

Darla Minamyer purchased this farmhouse in 2009

Why Darla Minamyer chose Ohio

Great Location less than 2 miles from Old Man's Cave State Park, close to zip lining, ATV tours and so many other attractions! Beautiful, beautiful land! Beagle Hill Lodge sits on 50 scenic and private wooded acres. It is right on the main route into Hocking Hills for convenience yet so private and hill top views are great to observe from the upper deck of the house. Deer and wild turkey roam the land regularly.

What makes this farmhouse unique

Hot tub, sand volleyball court, fire pit, the pavilion for family cookouts and relaxing hammocks, nature hikes on the property! Close by is more trail hiking, ATV riding, in home massages and traveling chef for special occasions, zip lining, Segway tours, canoeing, antique and unique gift shopping, photography workshops, cave and waterfall exploration day trips, family picnics at the caves!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Six adults, three kids and two Labrador retrievers stayed here to ring in the New Year! Ended '13 and started '14 with lots of lovely snow. We walked all around the property woods, fields, and up and down your really long and scenic private lane. Also explored Old Man's cave on a warmer afternoon when giant icicles were falling from the cliffs and splashing into the river- OUTSTANDING!!!

New Year's Day was warm and sunny, so the fire pit got much use as we watched the sun set. Saw cardinals, blue jays, hawks, vultures, nuthatchers and heard woodpeckers!

Many thanks for the well-appointed kitchen, the hot tub, and so many towels!

Book Club Retreat

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed this house; with 10 woman the space was very accommodating. The fire pit was a HIT! We enjoyed the picnic area for dinner one evening. There were some items that I would like to bring to your attention that are a small fix. The rooms were a little dusty, the water had a "well" smell, the water pressure in the Master bedroom was really low and the phone line had a lot of static. I would definitely recommend this house to others.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for recommending our property to others, that is very nice of you. I contacted the head of housekeeping to mention some traces of dust, to ensure they check it more frequently. I also contacted maintenance about your communicated lower water pressure than normal, and he indicated the shower head needed tightened again and he already accomplished that. We do have top of the line water filtration system and water softener, as the entire Hocking Hills region is well water access only, and doesn't offer city water services. Thanks again and hope to have you back again. Sincerely, Darla

Photos are deceiving

  • 3 of 5

I was somewhat disappointed. The online photos were deceiving, rooms much smaller than presented. House also needs updating. Overall we enjoyed ourselves very much!!!

  • Submitted: Apr 12, 2016
  • Stayed: Apr 2016

Owner's Response: We are very glad to hear you enjoyed yourself at our property. We hired a Hocking Hills professional photographer to create the photos of the property, and this is the very first comment we have ever received about them being deceiving in some way. Also, I did want to mention for future guest references, as property owners, we have invested over $140,000 at this point on numerous updates throughout the house since purchasing in 2009. The next updates scheduled in April '16 are repainting the entire exterior again and restraining all trim and decks. We are excited for that update this year! In 2015, we had a contractor remodel two bathrooms, plant $5,000 in additional pine trees around the house and purchased $25,000 in brand new Windows and sliding glass doors throughout the entire home. Enjoy the rest of your Spring and thank you very much for taking time to leave a review. Hope to provide your lodging needs in the future. Sincerely, Darla

Family get together

  • 3 of 5

Overall, we had a great weekend at this property. The location was really nice although we missed our driveway due to poor signage and drove farther than we needed. The exterior property was spacious and comfortable to explore. We enjoyed an evening campfire, but would have benefitted from having a small saw to cut some of the large pieces of wood we found. The hot tub was wonderful and very clean. The bedrooms worked fine for our family, although we felt the basement mattress should be replaced soon (adults don't sleep well when they roll into the middle and sink). We also felt the towels needed to be freshened. We realize we were probably the early season renters, but the towels had a mildew smell and were not pleasant to dry with. Overall, we had a wonderful time and enjoyed our family weekend retreat. I would definitely recommend this property and give it a 3 star rating.

Owner's Response: Thank you for submitting a review, and for recommending our property/ stating you would choose to return again. I will gladly check into the comfort level of the lower level queen mattress, as it is only two years old and was on the higher end of expensive when purchased. If it needs replaced, I will do so very promptly. In addition, our towels, wash clothes, bedding etc. is washed, and fabric softener the same day guests check out by the professional linen service we pay, so my sincere apologies that you felt they smelled musty. I have stayed dozens of times and have never experienced that same concern. I will try to figure out what was different for your stay vs. all previous guests, and gladly make improvements where warranted. Our goal has always been, and continues to be, guest comfort and enjoyment of staying at our property. No previous guests have ever indicated they had trouble finding our home by using the directions we provide in the stay confirmation. We do have reflector numbers for night time (dark arrivals) at the driveway end. I will make sure a vehicle or local plow didn't knock them down recently, or the woods near the reflector numbers aren't growing too much this early in the spring before the grounds crew starts the spring land/ lawn care. Thank you again for staying, and we appreciate your feedback very much. Sincerely, Darla
