About the area

Adams County is in southern Ohio, 1 hour east of Cincinnati and 2 hours south of Columbus. Make this your home away from home. Come and visit The Great Serpent Mound (an ancient Indian effigy mound), a thriving Amish community, The Nature Conservancy's 18,000 acre Edge of Appalachia Preserve and numerous Ohio State nature preserves. A wonderful place to get away from frantic everyday life in town to a quiet peaceful serene place surrounded by nature.

“Great Cabin Getaway!”

Reviewed 14 Feb 2017

Cozy and comfortable cabin, we already want to go back! It is comfortably furnished and I found the kitchen very well stocked for our stay. Everything was clean and welcoming for us when we arrived. The modernization of the original cabin was beautifully done, a great mix of rustic elements but still with modern comforts. I would 100% recommend this to anyone looking to get away!

“Romantic Rustic Getaway”

Reviewed 22 Mar 2016

If you enjoy seclusion, rustic and a great view, then this is one of the best cabins near Cincinnati. From the outside the cabin looks like it was built in the 1800s, but it has been nicely updated on the inside with modern amenities creating an excellent combination of the two. The fireplace is the centerpiece of the main floor and George supplied more than enough firewood for the entire weekend. The kitchen has everything you need to cook a home made meal. The king bed in the loft is very comfortable and the down comforter provided ample warmth for the cold nights. Sunrises and star gazing were a real treat with the view from the nearby barn. There are hardly any lights within the view giving you the sense of total country seclusion. George is a true pleasure and ease to work with and exceptionally friendly. I highly recommend this cabin for a romantic getaway for two. We will certainly be returning in the future.

Owner's reply: Thanks, Eric. You have captured the essence of the place. Come back any time, and tell your friends!

“Secluded and Quiet Retreat”

Reviewed 17 Feb 2016

This cabin is one of a kind. Rustic but it has all that you need for a relaxing stay. The best thing is that it secluded and quiet with beautiful views from the front porch. If you want to leave your hectic life behind and unwind then this place is it.

Owner's reply: Thanks David, glad you enjoyed Valentine's Day!

“Inviting Cabin”

Reviewed 22 Dec 2015

The cabin was well stocked with nice amenities. George, the innkeeper was very pleasant and provided us with some local history that we found interesting. We will be back!

“Scenic quite with a splash of adventure”

Reviewed 22 Jun 2015

The pre civil war cabin was like being transported back in time. The recent renovations though provided us with all the comforts and conveniences we were used to. The property itself has plenty to see including several ponds, wildlife and a 30 mile view from the fire pit where we watched thunderstorms track across the valley. For a real adventure there is a cave that goes back many hundreds of feet. It's not an easy access (you have to climb down a bit) but it's something an amateur with a headlamp can explore. Inside you'll find a hidden history of Adams County!

Owner's reply: Thanks, Andre. Come back and hike the trails in the Nature Conservancy Edge of Appalachia Preserve, visit the Great Serpent Mound and check out the shops in the Amish community. When you're done, return and relax on the porch of the log cabin.

“Perfect Elopment”

Reviewed 21 Apr 2015

The owners were very accommodating in allowing us to adjust our arrival time earlier so we could explore the property ahead of time to scope out a location for us to get married. There was firewood already cut for us when we arrived and when we were running low (after a couple days) the owners cut and delivered more to the cabin, all without us even contacting them. Everything was very clean and in good condition. It was nice to have a stocked kitchen to be able to cook in and plenty of towels for the bathroom. We loved the privacy we felt even with other cabins on the property! We also very much appreciated that the cabin and property was pet friendly; it allowed us to bring our dog and have her there with us when we got married! The scenery and the historic cabin were absolutely beautiful making for perfect wedding pictures, including the snow. The only issue we experienced was that the washer and dryer were broken when we arrived. Luckily, we had packed enough clothing that it did not affect us at all but it would have been nice if we had been notified ahead of time. However, we understand things break unexpectedly and it had no affect on our stay.

Owner's reply: Thanks, Sophia. We appreciate the compliments. Sorry about the washer/dryer. They were recently installed and we assumed they worked. Silly us! They've since been fixed.

“Our new favorite spot!!!”

Reviewed 19 Jan 2015

I can not say enough about this beautiful log cabin. It is rustic, secluded, and quiet....yet modern, close to town, and all the emenities you need. George and Patty, you have done an incredible job of capturing the look and feel of an old log cabin. Beautiful restoration! Like I said, I just can't say enough good things about "our new favorite spot". Thank you!!

Owner's reply: Paula, thank you very much. It is gratifying to say the least when our efforts are appreciated. We have enjoyed the farm for many years, but never so much as when we share it with others. A special place. Come back anytime. It's not far away, but in a different world, one where you can hear the birds and see the stars. George

Owner Supplied Testimonials

"What a beautiful restoration! We love the stillness and peace of the setting, tucked away in its own little sanctuary. We spent many hours enjoying the wood-burning fireplace; and we loved having coffee on the porch and watching the birds.

Thanks for all you have done to provide such a wonderful place to rejuvenate."
