Athens barn description

We do NOT use the VRBO calendar so please call or email for availability. VRBO does to allow us to provide accurate rate quotes as our rates are determine by the number of guests and the dates requested. Newly remodeled in June 2010, the BunkHouse is open and airy with 4 bedrooms, 2 full baths, a full kitchen complete with pots/ pans/ utensils etc, and large open family/ dining area. Also includes a laundry center and lovely covered stone patio with a scenic view of rolling southern Ohio hills. Bedrooms #1 and #2 feature 2 full beds each. Bedroom #3 offers a queen and twin while #4 features a bunk unit with a twin on top and full on the bottom. All linens and towels are included. A/C and heat.

The BunkHouse is perfect for a large family or multiple families who would like to entertain together, but prefer their own sleeping space. If you would like to explore the nearby Strouds Run State Park or Wayne National Forest, spend a day on Dow Lake, search out the covered bridges or quilt barns, the BunkHouse can be your home base. With easy access to State Route 690 and State Routes 550 or 50, you can easily get to and from events at Ohio University or anywhere in the southeastern Ohio area.

The BunkHouse is also ideal for groups of hunters during deer season, turkey season or small game/fishing. We also offer 4 open air, covered horse stalls and additional uncovered corrals as needed...access to many trails within 1 hour haul.

Enjoy this quiet, country BunkHouse but be close enough to town to take advantage of everything Athens has to offer. The BunkHouse is truly a unique space that you will enjoy.

Please note: There are full-time tenants on the second-floor of the Bunkhouse and we will ask that you be respectful of reasonable 'quiet hours'...please ask us if you have any questions.

Our rates start at $200 per night with a 2 night minimum during Non-Event and Off Season nights for up to 4 guests. All other dates and group sizes rates vary. Please call or email for your Quote.

Thanks!
