Martin Bernhard purchased this house in 1998
Our property has been in our family for many years. I purchased the property from my uncle who owned it for many years. I fell in love with property the first time I saw it. Its joins into the Wayne National Forest. Its beauty is unforgettable. The pure peace and solitude there is something most folks can,t imagine. It was originally used primarily for a hunting cabin, But over the years all our family and friends have used it for many, many occasions and recreational activities.
peace and quiet/ lots of wild life
We wanted seclusion and we got it, wonderful property with so much to do you never need to leave! I did think it looked nice in the pictures but they do this place no justice. The owner and the caretaker were both very easy to deal with as well.
Went for a long weekend. Planned to travel in to Athens on Saturday and maybe out for some hiking. Never left the property - too nice to leave..
Our stay at Wilderness Retreat was an awesome break from the busyness of daily routine. The cabin was nice and we'll kept. We greatly enjoyed the pond and seclusion. My boys loved just running around here and see nature's beauty. Fishing in the pond was fun as well. The only negative about the trip and stay are the roads around the cabin are very rough and in any bad weather would need 4 wheel drive. Would definitely recommend this to anyone.
A large group of us stayed the weekend there and had a great time! The place was exactly as advertised and clean. Very remote and away from neighbors/traffic. Would highly recommend.
House is as clean and well kept as the pictures look. Don't need to put a lot of thought into what to bring, everything is provided. Care taker and owner are there for you. Great time, would recommend to anyone. Pleasure talking to you Mike.
This was a great weekend, it was so quite and peaceful. We spent most of our time at the pond. Very clean and really nice. We really hated to have to leave. It was awesome not having any cell service, the kids truly had a wonderful time. Great memories. We will definitely be back!! Thank you Mike.
During your stay at our beautiful Wilderness retreat you will be in near isolation from the outside world. You will have all the amenities of a luxury hotel but will be not be bothered with the sights and sound of the city. There is many historical sites that can be visited while you stay at our retreat. Some people like to visit the historic twin cities of Malta and Mconnellsville. These two cities are a battle site of the civil war. But most that stay with us will be inclined to just relax on the property. You can swim or fish in our 2 acre fully stocked pond. You can go on long nature walks through the rippling slate bottom creeks. Or you can make a warming campfire in front of the house and sit and make S mores and fire pies until it is time for bed. Ohio is also very well known fory its world renowned white tail deer. We have hunting specials available for all of the hunting seasons. Whether you are chasing the elusive Turkey or the legendary Big white tail Buck than this is the hunting retreat for you, as we have over 45 acres that backs directly into the Wayne National Forest. This cabin is set up for 6-8 people max. Tent camping is allowed. no campers please.
