Overview

About the property

Sunny and New 2BR 1BA Family Cottage with full kitchen.

Cozy but roomy fully-furnished two bedroom cottage on a heartbreakingly beautiful 13 acre lot in Ohio's rolling Amish country. Located in the picturesque Victorian town of Deersville, five to ten minutes drive from fishing and boating on both Tappan Lake and Lake Clendenning and twenty-five minutes drive from the bustling burg of New Philadelphia, Fleming's Family Cottage is a peaceful, private haven.

Sunlight pours in through the skylight in the huge upstairs bedroom, which features a comfy queen bed and a twin bed separated by a low partition. Two huge closets and a dresser invite you to stay for a while; An overstuffed chair and ottoman tempt you to sit and read or take a nap; A desk and chair with a tree laden window view beckons you to write or think; And a TV nook stocked with videotapes gives the kids something to do when they're tuckered out from their day at the lake.

Downstairs, an elegant bedroom with a queen sized bed, a private window, dresser and roomy closet, connects to a bright, contemporary bathroom, with tub and shower and lots of cupboards. A bright and spacious modern eat-in kitchen looks out onto the stunning front lawn. The living room, with it's high ceilings, is comfortable and gracious, its window also framing the rolling, tree-graced lawn.

But though the house is wonderfully inviting, you'll find yourself drawn to wander the beautiful forested property. Dotted with tall fir trees, maples and willow trees, the property is breathtakingly beautiful in every season. A winding, tree-shaded path leads you to a large, cattail-fringed private pond stocked with fish. Dragonflies zigzag in the warm spring and summer air. Further down the path, an old two-room log cabin (under repair, the happy project of the property's owner), built at the turn of the last century, intrigues you.

Deer, safe from hunters on this land, dart in and out of the foliage, watching you as you follow the path up and over large and ancient rock formations, and make your way into a dense forest. Surrounded by whispering trees, and the occasional tap-tap-whirr of a woodpecker's beak tapping into hard wood, you will visibly relax. At night, the stars fill the sky, owls hoot, and pond frogs peep in a loud chorus, lulling you to an easy sleep.

Amenities: Wifi, Cable TV (Direct TV), Washer and Dryer, refrigerator, new stove/oven, microwave, coffee maker, Charcoal Grill, Portable fire pit outside Cottage, Fire Pit at Pond, benches at Pond,. CD player, VCR and videotape library, books, board games, .,picnic table, Whole House Air Conditioning. Sheets and towels provided.

Activities: One minute walk from the Deersville General Store (just up the hill) and their famous homemade ice-cream. Five to ten minutes drive from boating and fishing on the majestic Tappan or Clendenning Lakes, where you can rent a boat and swim, water-ski or fish.

The acreage on the property itself invites hiking; the large private pond is stocked with fish just waiting to be caught. For an excellent lunch and a tour of the Railroad Museum, visit Depot Town, fifteen minutes drive away in Dennison. New Philadelphia, with it's coffee houses, shops, movie theater, restaurants and busy summer entertainment schedule, is a scenic 25 minute drive away. 45 Minutes to an hour away is the heart of Ohio's famous Amish Country. Deersville is on the Register of Historical Places, and is one hour south of Akron, Ohio and one hour West of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Very relaxing could use a little tlc.

  • 4 of 5

If you are looking to spend time with your kids away from the busy everyday life of running them here and there or wanting a relaxing time away with your spouse this is the place. Jim is wonderful to work with and makes sure you have everything you need. The one thing people need to know is that the general store closes for the season in October and does not reopen until spring. This cottage is in a very rural area and I would highly recommend taking everything you need for your stay. The trail around the property is wonderful for walking, the pond could use some clearing so you can cast your line without getting it stuck in the cattails and the fire pit is wonderful for those evening bondfires. Thank you Jim for sharing your cottage with us! Hope to return so we can take you up on your advice for renting a pontoon for the day at Lake Clendenning.

We had a wonderful time hiking, fishing - and relaxing - at this peaceful cottage. Best part is we could be together with our dog - who had the best time being on vacation with us! - thank you Jim and Elena!

Always nice and peaceful

  • 5 of 5

We try to book this place once a year as we enjoy the peacefulness of the property and the remote location (even though it is located 1 block from "downtown" Deersville) It has become almost a home away from home for us to relax and get away for a few days. Thanks Jim for your hospitality and we will be sure to book again next year.

Beautiful property but had two issues.

  • 4 of 5

The Fleming cottage in Deersville is an ideal place to stay, for relaxation and nature-lovers. The property is lovely. The cottage is quite large and has every amenity you could imagine. We especially enjoyed the walking path, pond and large field for playing ball with our dogs!

Our only issues were that the cottage wasn't as clean as I remembered (cobwebs abound, bath mirror very bad and grill was unuseable and had to be scrubbed). Grass in field was very long. A worker showed up and stayed on the property, twice, until we complained to the owner!!

Mr. Fleming was very kind and offered us a free night, should we return.

If these issues were addressed, I would rate our stay with 5 stars.

So Relaxing

My husband and I enjoyed a quiet week. The cottage is very comfortable and has everything we needed. It was nice walking around the secluded property. We will be returning there in the future.

Deersville is located approximately 45 minutes southeast of Akron, 20 minutes southeast of New Philadelphia and 20 minutes northwest of Cadiz, Ohio. Nestled between two beautiful lake systems (Tappan to the east and Clendining to the west) this property is an ideal location for those wishing to relax or take in the area sites (Amish Country is within half an hour). Deersville's General Store has been in operation for over 100 years. This cottage is located on 13 beautiful acres with pond and walking path. It doesn't get any better than this.
