Pictures just updated!
Hidden on 19 acres of wooded property, we are minutes away from historic Zoar Village, Zoar Village Golf Course, Fort Laurens, and the Ohio and Erie Canal Towpath Trail. Only 25 minutes to Canton, less than an hour to Akron, and one and a half hours from the Cleveland area. Columbus and Pittsburgh are 2 hours away. You will be 20 minutes from Dover/New Philadelphia and Amish Country. We are close enough that you can put the kids in the car and be here by the end of their first "movie in the car." We are easily accessed from I-77 (7 minute drive off the interstate).A pole barn fronting the property provides ample storage for any equipment, trailers, or campers. Follow a private 800 ft driveway through the woods to our hidden two bedroom, one bathroom cabin overlooking a 2 acre pond. Comfortably sleeps 6. Cabin has a large living room and an eat in kitchen. Clothes washer and dryer on premises. Sleep in comfort year round with our brand new electric AC and furnace. Enjoy a quiet evening by the water, walk any of the small trails, cook hot dogs and marshmallows, or visit nearby attractions. The cabin DOES NOT have internet or TV/cable, but receives excellent cell reception.
Our cabin is the place for kids to run around, catch frogs, tadpoles, and minnows. Watch the water bugs glide around the water. Kids thrive in the outdoors and this is the place to get wet, dirty, and play. At night the frogs create their own music loud enough to sing you to sleep.
The property is fronted on the corner by a pole barn. Ask prior to your arrival if you would like to store any equipment in the barn during your stay. You will need to bring your own padlock for the door. We have disconnected electric service to the barn due to low use. There is no water at the barn either. There are two entrances to this frontage, off the road and also from our private driveway that will accommodate vehicles, trailers or campers.
The private drive way is located just past the pole barn. It is recognizable from its cabin style mailbox. It weaves 800 feet through the woods to our cabin. The driveway has been newly reworked with a dozer and stone. It is accessible in most weather conditions. We have both a minivan and regular car and have no trouble on the driveway. If there is heavy snowfall we will do our best to have the drive plowed to ensure access.
Before reaching the cabin there is a small clearing on the left hand side of the drive. This area is a perfect spot for tents and camping. If you wish to stay with more than 6 people, please contact us and we can review your plan. There is a trampoline located at this site, however use at your own risk. We assume no responsibility for injuries or mishaps. Jump at your own risk!
A large gravel parking area and fire pit is set next to the cabin. Past the fire pit is a swing for enjoying the fires. There are also a number of trails that start from this location and wind through the property. Remember you are in the woods now so watch out for poison ivy!
When you walk down the small hill you will see the cabin. The door on the left is a wood shed. The door on the right is for the mud room. The mud room has plenty of space to hang coats and store shoes.
Go through the second door and youwill enter the living room. It is newly remodeled and furnished. A large window overlooks the lake. In the cabinet there are many games to play during your stay. The wood burning stove is NOT to be used by renters! We have a brand new heating/cooling system that will keep everyone comfortable.
Walking through the living room you reach the kitchen. The kitchen is loaded with all new cooking supplies. There are pots, pans, cookie sheets, utensils, cutting boards, colander, bowls, casserole dishes, plates, cups, Crock Pot, coffee maker, food processor, water jug, and starter spices, oil, and coffee. Don’t want to do dishes during your stay? Good news. We have a dishwasher too. The cabin has well water. If you are not used to well water it may taste different. It is perfectly clean and safe to drink. The dining table has four chairs and a bench to seat 6 people. There is a large sliding glass door that provides a great view from the kitchen. The thermostat is located in the kitchen.
Off the kitchen is the one bathroom. It is fully remodeled and brand new with a sink, toilet, and shower/tub. The shower head is magnetic so it easily detaches to make cleaning kids extra easy.
Off the kitchen is the first floor bedroom. This room was the original cabin that was built on this location. It is wood paneled and has a (non-working) fireplace. The bed is a new queen mattress. In the closet are the washer and dryer with starter laundry soap and dryer sheets. The sliding glass doors open onto a covered deck. On the deck is a hammock, two chairs, and a small table. The view from this location is the best on the property! We have spent lots of time just laying in the hammock listening to the birds and frogs.
Upstairs there is a queen bed with a new mattress and a bunk bed with new mattresses. There is a large closet to hang or store clothes during your stay.
Outside the cabin off the kitchen there is a stone walkway down to a dock on the pond. You can rest on the bench, watch the water bugs, or launch a kayak from this spot. If you want to swim off the dock be careful. The pond drops off quickly and gets quite deep. Swim at your own risk! We assume no responsibility for injuries or mishaps. Life jackets are highly recommended! Circle around the back of the cabin and you go down stairs to a second dock. Tucked underneath the house is a porch swing where you can enjoy looking out over the lake. Under the house is a supply of pool noodles. Again, use at your own risk.
There are currently 2 adult kayaks and 1 kids sit-on-top kayak with a weight limit of 130 lbs. The kayaks are on loan to us and we CANNOT guarantee they will be on site during your stay. If you do use them, please treat them with care and return them to their location. Wear a life jacket while kayaking, even if you are a strong swimmer. Kayak at your own risk. We assume no responsibility for injuries or mishaps.
Food Supply: After driving to the cabin and unloading your luggage, the last thing you want to do is head over to the grocery store. We got you covered. We can do a basic breakfast/lunch/snack stock for you. Do you want more specific items? Do you want a full meal supply? Flowers? Chocolates? Let us know how we can make your stay more comfortable.
