The SpaceOver four generations of my family have lived in this house beginning before 1900. You can rent the entire historic home (save for our private quarters) for a weekend or longer and enjoy the Ohio scenic byways and the Buckeye trail during the day, eat out in restaurants in nearby Dennison or New Philadelphia, visit Amish country or Tappan Lake Park, or create your own masterpiece in our fully furnished gourmet kitchen. This is a rare gem and perfect for family reunions, hunting groups, weddings, or for weekend getaway- just you and your special love. Hazel's House sleeps 6 in three bedrooms with air mattresses for extra guests. Please note this is the "country," and this house is rustic and old. Although we do our best to create a relaxing and special environment for you, the swallows nest in the eaves and window ledges on the porch every summer and bugs can fly in. We don't use pesticides on our property, have an organic garden out back, and hope you like nature! Guest AccessIn addition to your private bedrooms upstairs and the full custom bath downstairs, you have access to the BBQ charcoal Weber grill outside, full kitchen furnished with basic supplies (flour, sugar, oil, etc.), ice dispenser, steam sauna shower, heated bathroom marble floor, hot tub, all linens, free WiFi, down pillows, and down alternative comforters. Guests who stay more than a week may request weekly use of the private washer and dryer and house cleaning service for an additional fee. Basement rooms and owner's apartment are off limits and locked, but you may enjoy the huge back yard, fire pit and the hot tub through the basement stairway. Interaction with GuestsAlthough we live here fulltime now, we leave to give you a private vacation experience. The wonderful marble master bath on the main floor is a custom bathroom and steam shower that's perfect for relaxing. We have added a new hot tub outside this year that is cleaned and sanitized between guest stays. We have also added a large outdoor table that seats eight for alfresco dining. A fire pit sits nearby ready for s'mores or hot dogs.
We love to cook and have a well stocked kitchen. Let us know if you are celebrating a birthday or anniversary and wish for us to arrange something special. We will do our best to help you with your celebration. The NeighborhoodThere is no prettier place in the world for us than Deersville. Hazel's House is located in the middle of this tiny village, home to 60+ souls. If you come in the summer or fall, you might catch a live production of the Deersville Community Theater. The Deersville General Store next door offers its famous homemade ice cream and has a well stocked beer cooler, milk, eggs, bread, etc., pizza and deli counter. Clendening Lake Park and Tappan Lake Park both offer boat ramps and fishing in the spring and summer. The Marinas offer boat rentals of all types. Harrison County is renowned for deer and turkey hunting. Holmes County, home to Amish wares and antiques, is less than an hour west. We love to head into Pittsburgh for shopping and fine dining and pro sports for the day. Dennison offers up the Trax Diner, Train Museum and the Rail Yard Restaurant with a full bar for dinner nearby. You can shop for groceries at Mako's in Uhrichsville, or Buehler's in New Philadelphia on your way home after a day of touring, however the nearest gas, pizza, beer and food convenience store year round is right next door at the Deersville General Store.
