The SpaceOnly an hour from Columbus, we frequently use the cabin as a getaway ourselves and find that our stress simply disappears upon arrival. The house is built around the large, stone fireplace and has all brand-new appliances in the kitchen. The screened-in porch overlooks the wooded yard and provides privacy and seclusion. There are two bedrooms on the main floor and a large loft upstairs. We have two queen-sized beds, a twin bed, and a big comfortable couch. Guest AccessGuests will have access to the first floor, which includes: two bedrooms (one twin bed and one queen-sized bed), the comfortable living room, the full bathroom, and the well-equipped kitchen. Guests will also have access to the queen-sized bed in the upstairs loft (which is accessed by a real staircase, not a ladder), the spacious front deck, and the secluded screened-in porch, along with all the outside spaces (including the fire pit). An additional guest could easily sleep on the big, comfortable couch in the living room. We're currently renovating the basement, so the bottom floor will be locked during your stay. Interaction with GuestsWe live in Cincinnati, so we won't interact directly, but I'll be readily available by phone and email. I will send more information, including details for the lock box to access the house, before your arrival. The NeighborhoodThe cabin is at the dead-end of a dirt road surrounded by woods in the middle of nowhere. It feels very secluded, though there is a neighbor about 100 yards away--the only other neighbor is a nearby cemetery! The neighbor often has cars parked where they can be seen from the front porch, but the screened-in porch always remains very secluded, so that is where we spend the majority of our time. Because of the cabin's location, very few things are nearby. The closest Kroger is a twenty five minute drive, but a new dollar store recently opened in Hanover. It is less than ten minutes away and sells most essentials, including groceries. Getting AroundThere is no public transit in the area, so a car is an absolute necessity for your stay. Other Things to NoteWe have two border collies who frequently join us at the cabin. No matter how much cleaning we do, there is sure to be some dog hair in the house, so if you have dog allergies this is probably not the place for you. Your dog is permitted during your stay, but no cats.
This is an old log cabin. Some things (like the kitchen appliances) have been updated, but other things (like old shower fixtures) have not been updated. If you're looking for modern, five-star accommodations this is not the place for you. The cabin is a bit rustic, with a lot of character and charm.
You're welcome to use the charcoal grill on the screened-in porch, but please plan to bring your own charcoal.
The kitchen is well-equipped with tableware, drinkware, and cookware. You're welcome to use any of it, but please plan to bring your own food.
You're welcome to use both the inside fireplace and outside fire pit. An ample supply of wood is provided.
Note: there is no TV or internet at the cabin. We use it to escape from all of that, but if you need to check in, we've found that our phones have excellent service for both voice and data while there (we use Verizon and AT&T).
Longaberger Golf Club, a world-class golf course, is less than ten minutes away. Our cabin is the perfect place to stay for your weekend on the course.
Other nearby amenities include: hiking trails at Blackhand Gorge State Nature Reserve, Dawes Arboretum, and Dillon Lake State Park (including boating, fishing, mountain biking, etc.)
