Just 60 feet off your front porch is beautiful Brush Creek Forest, comprising over 12,000 acres! Don't be hasseled by owners that live on-site like other properties. With over 2800 sq. ft., The Sanctuary is your own private paradise, unlike any other! All for as low as $18 per person per day! Our home is supplied with clean, pure county water, unlike other rural properties. NOTHING compares to The Sanctuary for price, location, and accommodations.

The lower level features two bedrooms (1 queen and 1 full), a full bathroom, washer and dryer, and lounge area with TV/DVD/Wii gaming system, a wide selection of books and board games, plus a wood stove for chilly nights.
Bring the entire family or just a friend for your home-away-from-home 'Staycation' or a romantic weekend escape! You can stay in touch with hi-speed internet/FREE Wi-fi/free long-distance telephone.
You'll feel hundreds of miles away but you're really only minutes away. Just a short drive leads you to Miller's Amish Market. Homemade doughnuts and mouth-watering turnovers and other sweet treats await you. Enjoy them there or bring some back with you. Or, visit famous Serpent Mound or Ft. Hill Indian Earth Works, then head back to your home in the hardwoods and relax on the covered front porch. Or simply stay in, light a fire, relax and do nothing! Close enough to plenty of activities if you so wish.
We are priced right so you can afford to come back time and time again. You are always welcome here!

3 bicycles on property--enjoy pedaling through the forest. Also nearby the Highland Nature Preserve you can rent fishing boats and pontoons at Paint Creek State Park. Or drive south to Shawnee State Forest where you can also rent fishing boats and catch the elusive trout. If you're the adventurous type, take a drive through the Shawnee State Forest Wilderness area, and if you're lucky, you might catch a glimpse of a bobcat, black bear, wild boar or bald eagle. Or take a cool dip in the spring-fed waters that stay a constant temperature all summer long at Mineral Springs Resort. If you're into Indian culture, we're very close to Serpent Mound and Ft. Hill Indian Earth Works--both of which are one-of-a-kind in Ohio.
Year Purchased: 2004
Why the Owner Chose Brush Creek Forest: We chose this place because it was the most beautiful place we'd seen. Total privacy in the forest - awesome!
The Unique Benefits at this House: This is a one of a kind location with not another house in sight. Nestled up to your own private forest, you can watch deer and wild turkey while you sip coffee on your covered porches. Or if you choose, from the end of your driveway take a walk through the forest on level ground that leads you a quarter of a mile into this pristine Ohio forest land located at the base of Tener mountain. Close enough to plenty of activities if you wish & the hiking is unbelievable!
