Rustic Cabin with Stone Fireplace
|Per night:||$115 - $140|
Downstairs is a private bedroom with queen bed, living room with fireplace, dining room that seats 6 around a magnificent Ethan Allen maple table, bath with tub shower and fully equipped kitchen. Upstairs in the loft overlooking the fireplace are 4 twin beds.
We offer amenities comparable to a boutique hotel – crisp hand ironed sheets and pillow cases, handsome comforters on the beds, fluffy towels and natural soap. We do our own laundry, without the harsh chemicals and industrial finishing of a commercial laundry.
Your children will be intrigued to stay in a cabin surrounded by woods, and to sleep in the loft overlooking the fireplace. Your dog will enjoy romping and exploring the woods and fields.
Everything you need is at hand: flat screen TV, WiFi, fully equipped kitchen ready to cook in, flatware and china, wine glasses, Bunn instantaneous coffee maker.
Our stone fireplace burns real wood from the farm. There is an outdoor fire ring with log furniture over by the barn. We supply hand split firewood for both. We do not have a hot tub.
Out on the deck overlooking the pond and the woods is a gas grill and table and chairs for dining and lounging.
Have breakfast on the sun-dappled deck (weather permitting). Stroll over to the log barn where you enjoy a spectacular view of the Appalachian foothills in the distance. Walk up our woodland path to the cave. Bring a flashlight to explore the cave. In the evening, start a fire in the fire pit by the barn and roast marshmallows, or star gaze from the big field, where the Milky Way shines across the sky. Relax in the living room before a sparkling fire, surrounded by warm pine paneling and cedar trim.
About Adams County:
Adams County is one of the most beautifully scenic counties in Ohio. The Great Serpent Mound is the largest effigy mound in the country. The Amish community offers shops and tidy well kept farms. The southern boundary is the Ohio River, with gorgeous views, fishing and boating. Nature Conservancy’s Edge of Appalachia Preserve and numerous state natural areas showcase the county’s unique features.
Visit the Great Serpent Mound and its visitor center. Check out the Wheat Ridge Amish community shops and well kept farms. Travel the Quilt Barn Trail and see the rural countryside by car. Follow the ride of Confederate John Hunt Morgan and his Raiders through Adams County in 1863.
In neighboring Brown County, visit the boyhood home of US Grant in Georgetown; see where Liza reportedly crossed the Ohio River on the ice in Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Visit the Rankin House above the Ripley bluff, where lanterns hung to guide slaves escaping across the river from Kentucky.
Hike in one of the many nature preserves and natural areas in Adams County. Our favorites include Chaparral Prairie (a remnant prairie a mile away). Buzzards Roost Rock trail (a strenuous hike in the Edge of Appalachia Preserve) and Davis Memorial Nature Preserve (features a pristine stream, high rock cliffs and a geologic fault in the cliff face).
Enjoy birding on our farm or in the nature preserves.
Fish our pond (catch and release only), the ponds in Tranquility Natural Area, Adams Lake State Park, Ohio Brush Creek or the Ohio River.
Have dinner at Murphin Ridge Inn or Moyer’s Winery. Murphin Ridge is an excellent restaurant in an old farm house near the Amish community. Moyer’s offers fine food in a dining room overlooking the Ohio River.

This is a lovely cabin far away from it all. I use it as a retreat for silence and solitude. It is well appointed -- kitchen has everything you need for simple meals.The owners obviously care about their property and their guests.
Great place for a weekend getaway

A great cabin to get away for some R&R. This was our second stay at Dodge Cabin and we enjoyed it as much as the first. We had everything we needed and loved spending the weekend nestled in the countryside. This is a. Use do again.

Best Vacation Taken
July 24, 2014
What a wonderful vacation we had at George Carr's cabin. We took our two Granddaughters, Hannah, age 14 and Hallie, 7 and our two American Eskimo dogs. Mr. Carr showed us around the property and cabin upon arrival. We were surprised at the number of amenities the cabin had. There was a firepit out by the barn where the girls roasted marshmallows and made s'mores which they had never done before. We all went fishing one day at the pond which is lovely. The only one that caught anything was our oldest grandchild. She caught and released 8 bluegill. She smiled the whole time. Every day we explored new things in Adams County such as great "mom and pop" restaurants; old soda fountains; ice cream every day; old cemetarys and much more. We were, of course in Amish country and the girls love the horses and buggies that they saw. We also stopped at Miller's Bakery and Furniture. It's off the beat and path but it is worth the drive. The baked goods were wonderful and the furniture is unbelievable which we both bought some of each. Back at the cabin, where it was nice and cool, with the air conditioner on, we played games with the girls and took many walks with girls and the dogs. My husband took the girls to the little cave nearby. What was really nice we never turned the television on. We just read or read to the girls or just relaxed on the porch and of course ate! One of the most memorable moments of the trip was I had brought pictures of their dad, our only child, Matthew, who at the age of 35, died March 28, 2013. Hannah and Hallie loved looking at those pictures of when he was little and they asked may questions about him. They asked if they could take any of the pictures and of course we said yes and they took two each. It was a very poignant time for us as we had not been alone with them to tell them some stories about their dad. On the way back to Newark where the girls live and then to Toledo where we live we stopped for about and hour at Serpent mound. Everybody should go and witness that marvelous mystery. I cannot say enough about Mr. Carr's hospitality and the cabin and it's beautiful surroundings. Everyone should take advantage of this type of vacation. If the cabin is available, my husband and I would like to come back the first week of October to celebrate our 32nd anniversary WITHOUT grandchildren. Mary Ellen and Jim Sielicki
