Ashland farmhouse description
Enjoy a unique, private country vacation with your family. With this farm stay you have the experience of farm living without all the hard work! Observe farming and livestock maintenance by Amish neighbors and off site owners while you relax in the main farmhouse......all to yourself.
Approaching the 1866 built farmhouse from the country road, you will pass a windmill powered pump for the Amish family across the way. The drive down the wooded lane to the farmhouse will provide you with a glimpse of our goats awaiting your arrival.
Your first view of the house is of the spacious furnished porch with great northern exposures. The cozy yet open living area is equipped with TV connected to DVD/VHS player (no local or satellite service to the house) The main floor guest room, decorated with antique furnishings is just off the living room.
The Kitchen is equipped with modern appliances and a gas stove/oven set within local Amish crafted beautiful cabinetry. Original wood flooring in the the kitchen and dining room. All cookware, dinnerware, cutlery, and glassware are provided. The downstairs shower room is finished in tiles, converting an old pantry into a full room shower with modern Moen shower fixture. LG Washer and dryer are just off the kitchen.
The steep original stairway leads upstairs to the three bedrooms and an over sized bathroom with a walk in closet. The bathroom is furnished with a cast iron stand alone tub and vintage pedestal sink. Soak in the tub while gazing out the window upon birds and farmland.
The entire house has been renovated with new electrical, plumbing, heating and septic systems while maintaining the original wavy glass windows to the main frame. Ceiling fans have been added in the living room, master bedroom and porch. The shade provided by the hard maples, oaks and black walnut trees surrounding the house naturally keep the home cool even on the summer’s hottest days.
All bed linens and bath towels are provided to accommodate one queen bed, one full bed, one full size futon, and two twin beds. Hair dryer, iron, ironing board are also provided.
Take a walk down our street past Amish and Mennonite farms. Visit the farmers market in town on Saturday mornings or attend an old fashioned, but authentic, hay and produce auction on Friday mornings. Cook country meals with all local natural ingredients. Play with the goats, watch the Belgian Horses graze in our pasture. Watch our Turkeys forage on bugs and grass. Cook out and enjoy meals on our Amish made picnic table in the back yard. Enjoy the fresh smells of herbs and spices growing in our gardens. Buy a home made pie and fresh sweet corn from a farmer and his wife whose family has been farming their land for generations. Have a glass of Ohio wine and watch the sun set through the trees from our comfortable porch furniture, as hummingbirds feed from Rose of Sharon bushes that line our front lawn along the lane.
Nature never felt so good!

Workshop at Morgan Farm
Workshop at Morgan Farm
This Fall, we were working with clients in the Cleveland area and needed a unique space to host a workshop our design firm was organizing for them. The farm gave us unlimited freedom and flexibility to run our activities in all rooms of the house, while also doubling as sleeping accommodations for the majority of attendees. The environment at the farm was extremely relaxing and nurturing. It was a much needed escape from the city that allowed our participants to feel comfortable and be completely immersed in their creative endeavors. Furthermore, Dan was integral in our planning process both prior to our arrival and on site to be sure everything was stocking and catering took place seamlessly within our schedule. Morgan Farm was a breath of fresh air that was ideal for our purposes. We would certainly recommend this location to anyone else in similar circumstances.

Owner response: Thanks Kate, We have been so pleased with the variety of guest uses we have had. Your corporate workshop was so much fun to host, while giving a few neighboring farms the opportunity to prepare some fresh, farm cooked meals to make your stay just that much more comfortable. I am sure Edna, your coffee and fresh baked pastry chef, had some tales to tell her Amish family and friends. New York City to the Heartland of Ohio. We were proud to show off our Midwestern hospitality! We are happy to host this type of unique company retreat any time.
We loved the farmhouse! A group of 6 of us stayed while attending a conference in Ashland, and it was the perfect escape after full days. The setting was beautiful, the house charming, comfortable and very well equipped. It was clean, well-maintained, modern amenities with a rustic feel and the animals were really fun to have around. Groceries were a 5-10min drive away so we managed to not eat out the whole time there. The owners were really welcoming, and gave us fresh produce and eggs to enjoy during our stay. I can't say I disliked anything - except having to leave. I would highly recommend this place. Many thanks to the Morgans!

Owner response: It is always especially rewarding to get such a nice review from guests who travelled so far to stay at our farm. We were glad to be able to provide a nice ending to your long journey from British Columbia, Canada. I am glad you could enjoy the fireflies at night, some things we take for granted in Ohio. I was surprised to hear that some of your group had never seen them before! Thanks for the nice review!

We enjoyed our stay very much. Plenty of room for 8 people and the remodeled kitchen was a joy. The website's pix and videos represented the house and grounds well, except that the turkeys are no longer there and horses are across the road at another farm. We enjoyed seeing the goats and chickens, though, and the outside cats were friendly, if a bit persistent in wanting to get inside.

We'll Be Back
We'll Be Back
Our family rented the Morgan Farmhouse for a birthday/reunion weekend, and it's a time we won't forget. When I drive past nineteenth-century farmhouses that have been kept true to their vintage, I often fantasize what it would be like to live in one. The Morgan Farm answered that fantasy. The interior is a tasteful blend of authentic period and sophisticated contemporary styles. I'm making different pans for my own nineteenth-century home, now. We had a wonderful time, and we'll be back.

Owner response: Any new homeowner is faced with many decisions, especially when preparing an older home to live in or rent out as a vacation property. Many of the decisions we made were made to maintain the integrity of the original 1866 structure. Thank you John for appreciating the kind of loving care we have taken of our older farm home. We went out of our way to find some "new" "old" touches as well. The upstairs bathroom pedestal sink and cast iron tub are both over 100 years old, and were not in the structure when we purchased it.

Where do I begin! What a wonderful way to reunite friends from different states! We couldn't have asked for a better place to sit, relax, talk and reminisce than sitting on the front porch drinking our morning coffee! We explored the grounds and rode the bikes; we even met Edna our Amish neighbor across the street and helped her dig sweet potatoes. Morgan Farm is the best place to get away from all the hustle and bustle of everyday life at home to just relax, and enjoy the easy way of living life in the country. We didn't want to leave but promised that we would be back! I can't wait! Thanks so much Edna for sharing you simple way of life with us and Dan and Annette for sharing your wonderful farm.

Owner response: Peggy, How pleasantly surprised we were to learn how well you gals hit it off with Edna. She does not warm up to everyone, In fact her and her family usually go about the daily chores at our farm without hardly being noticed. Edna just could not get over your friendly nature and willingness to help her with the digging. (certainly not expected from our guests, as we always say..."the joy of farm living without the hard work")
More amazing than we imagined.

Morgan Farm was the perfect setting for our annual girls weekend trip! There were so many wonderful things to do on the farm, we ended up spending most of our time there. Everywhere we looked, there was something new and entertaining to explore. We chatted about the artwork on the walls, took pictures with the animals on the farm, explored the barns, pet the cats on the porch and watched the Amish buggies drive down the road. Never once were we seeking something to do. Morgan Farm has it all! The house was stocked with every ammenity you can think of. There were fresh raspberries in the fridge and whole chickens in the freezer when we arrived. Every kitchen appliance you could possibly need. We never ran out of towels, wash cloths, or linens. (Ten girls can go through a lot of towels.) The house was modern and updated, so we never once felt like we were ‘roughing it’. It also had a charm, like no other, that made us feel right at home when we walked through the door. When we did leave the house, there were many attractions close to the area to keep us entertained. We recommend Olivesburg General Store and the Olivesburg Berry Patch. Dan and Annette were very accomodating and a pleasure to meet. We will definitely be returning in the future to share this experience with our families. We recommend this for anyone and everyone wanting a unique getaway. You will not be disappointed. Thank you for all the wonderful memories.

Owner response: We were pleasantly surprised, and moved by your family when you arrived. So refreshing to see a girls weekend involving several sisters and mom! We have hosted several gals weekends in our 3 seasons, and they have always been pleased. Morgan Farm Stay is the ideal place to spend time with old friends and close family. The bikes, the gravel roads for long walks, the comfortable porch all lend themselves to great quality time together! We are so happy to have hosted you! Thanks for the kind words!

What an awesome experience! The Morgan Farm Stay is such a treasure. And so close! It's the perfect 'staycation' option for Ohio. We felt like we got away for two weeks, not just two days. It was so relaxing. The kids loved the goats, and rolling down the front hill over and over again. The adults loved the kitchen, and the ability to relax, take in the fresh air and all the green hills in every direction. It was also wonderful to allow our kids to just run free, always within sight but with enough freedom that they felt like they were on a solo adventure. Dan and Annette are gracious hosts with exquisite attention to detail. The local care package of Amish goodies were a wonderful welcome, and set the tone for the weekend. We loved the warm and eclectic feel of the house too. Exploring the creative and quirky style of the art through the house was an exciting added bonus. We went into town one day for a farm auction, and although we didn't buy any tractors (!) it was fun for us city folks to see what rural life is like up close and personal. We're already planning and talking about our next visit!

Owner response: Thanks Barb, There is so much around the area to explore but most our guests just love spending quality time together at the house and on the grounds. The kids can be entertained by the bullfrogs in the creek and riding bikes all around the property while the adults cook together or have a relaxing glass of wine on the porch overlooking the countryside. We are happy you enjoyed your weekend!

We can't say enough good things about our weekend stay at Morgan Farms. Celebrating our 15th year of going on an annual weekend together, this was the perfect place to do it. Very relaxing, cozy and comfortable. We found plenty to do in the area with the brochures provided, but our favorite moments were just relaxing on the porch, watching the leaves fall and listening to the still country side. Thank you for a wonderful experience that was much enjoyed by all!

Owner response: The ladies seem to LOVE getting their friends together for a farm getaway at Morgan Farm Stay.
We stayed at Morgan Farm in mid August. The weather was perfect. We met another family there and our children had a ball running around exploring the surroundings. The house fit our families perfectly. We were only there two nights so we weren't able to experience everything we wanted to, so next time we'll have to stay longer! The only thing we tried and were unsuccessful at was trying to purchase local produce and meats from area farmers. Maybe because it was a Saturday? We definitely would stay here again for a longer period of time!

Owner response: Thanks jdelpa1 It was intriguing that the other couple you met was from east of the farm, in PA. Glad you chose the Heartland of Ohio as a meeting spot in-between. The Amish families you visited may have been in the fields, or maybe you did not knock hard enough on the door, they often nap mid day, especially the long harvesting days, and of course no doorbells! (electricity) Sunday is the day to avoid the Amish, no business transactions. We look forward to your return!
Sad to be back home
Sad to be back home
We had a lovely weekend at Dan & Annette's perfect farmhouse. They met us there and gave us a tour of the barns, the house, the grounds. Everything was lovely, spotless, and obviously lovingly cared for. Our small kids ran and ran all over the place, in and out of the barn, up and down stairs, until they finally collapsed in comfortable, quilt-covered beds. Mommy & Daddy watched from the giant, old, shady front porch, our noses in books. The goats and the neighbors cows occasionally reminded us they were around. We ate like kings thanks to the local produce the owners left. It was a joy to cook in a well-equipped, bright, roomy kitchen then eat al fresco, kitties rubbing our ankles. We hardly wanted to leave the grounds, except to walk up the driveway to the street to watch buggies go by, but Dan and Annette left so many ideas for activities that we couldn't help ourselves. But just for a little while. Highly, highly recommend this place!

Owner response: Kids love our farm. They seem to find joy in every little detail, from playing with the cats and goats, to splashing in the puddles after a nice hard rain. We do feel obliged to supply a well equipped kitchen as well as area attraction maps and guides. We are very happy share the house with vacationers, partly because the feeling we get when we get terrific reviews like yours Vickie, Thank You!

Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: Annette and Dan Morgan returned to their native Ohio in a different way. They both grew up in Cleveland's suburbs, lived in New York City for 10 years and were ready to come home to Ohio. They decided to try the country, and bought this lovely 140 year old farm house. Only problem was, it had no English updates, it had been Amish occupied for over 20 years. Well a year and $100,000 later, they decided to move closer to Cleveland, where the work was. Answer, Create this Farm vacation property, or as known in Europe, Farm Stay. We LOVE being able to enjoy the farm house between guests, and still live in the city. Best of both worlds!
Why the Owner Chose Ashland:
We became very interested in farms while touring Wales on a vacation in 2004. The government sponsored trails through cow pastures were amazing. We fell in love with the beauty if the animal dotted countryside. We are both concerned about the big factory farms running the small family farm out of business. We felt we could set an example of one clever way to use the farm, and not sell it to developers.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Our guests get a taste of good old fashioned farm life, Children learn a great deal about where their food comes from and adults get a chance to slow down and enjoy nature at its best!
