Why Dirk Johnson chose South Charleston
This has always been a special place for many generations of our family. I could not imagine this home not being a part of our lives and felt it would be great to share it when we are not visiting.

Awesome historic house
Stayed the weekend for Hamvention in Xenia and was really impressed with the house. We ordered pizza from the Purple Monkey down the road and sat on the porch to eat it. Very nice country setting with modern amenities inside.
Lovely home near Springfield
A small group of college students and I stayed at the farmhouse while attending a conference at Wittenberg University. The house is absolutely beautiful, easy to find and well equipped. Dirk was a wonderful host, checking in before, during and after our stay, making sure that we were taken care of. Highly recommended!!!
Perfect setting for a not so perfect weekend.
The Farmhouse was exactly what we needed. Parts of 5 families were able to come together and celebrate the passing away of their sister with comfort and warmth. With the memorial taking place in Cedarville, the home was located very conveniently. Each family had their own room for privacy when needed and plenty of living space to just hang out with everyone together. Huge meals were prepared in the kitchen with ease and the dining room was a blessing to be together as one big family. Although our purpose for renting wasn’t desired, the need for the farmhouse was greater then expected. It provided a place for joy, for weeping, and for healing. Thank you for the use of your beautiful home. It provided everything we needed and more. We have already determined to reserve the home in the next couple years (if still available) for my nephew’s wedding as it is perfect for bringing families together. We highly recommend the Historic Grand Farmhouse of South Charleston!!!!
Good place for our group.
Relaxing place. Met our groups needs
Plenty of room for a fun family reunion weekend
This farmhouse has beautiful historic touches and the upgrades you want with lots of room for our nine adults to spend time together and have their own space. Seeing the sun rising over a cornfield and watching it set as the cattle grazed in the pasture just outside your window was amazing. From a game night on the screened front porch to s'mores and stories around the fire pit out back, we found great ways to connect as a family in this home.
A few tips - the home uses well water but there is a water softener with its own faucet at the kitchen sink for water for drinking and cooking. The laundry room is upstairs and located through a door in the bedroom with the treadmill. And you really do "climb" into the king bed in the master suite. It has a very high frame and the top of the mattress is about three feet from the floor, which could be challenging for someone who's shorter or not so nimble.
This is a charming house, in a unique setting, in a very friendly community.
Centrally located between Dayton and Columbus and approximately 10 minutes from the Clark county fairgrounds.
