Property description

Peaceful and quiet in a rural country setting, our 1833 log home has been restored and integrated with a new 2001 log home. The house is situated on 55 acres of rolling hill farm country and , conveniently located about 30 miles from Mount Vernon, Coshocton, Newark or Zanesville (65 mi NE of Columbus). Relax in the hot tub and watch the wild life, or sit on the porch or before a cozy, crackling fire in the fireplace. Abundant land to walk or ride horseback on. Horses are welcome (not provided).

Rustic charm and country elegance all in one place. Great for family reunions or gathering with friends. House offers washer, dryer and fully equipped, gorgeous country kitchen. Wonderful place to cook for the family. Satellite TV and wireless Internet. 2 1/2 miles off state highway, 1 mile of gravel road.

Property is managed for deer during hunting season, but lodging available and near Woodbury Nature Preserve (public hunting). We have special rates for hunters and package deals available to include food. Lease of land nearby may potentially be possible also. Contact us for details.


The Surrounding Area: Set in the heart of Ohio farm country, the house sits on it's own farm. The area is rural, and scenery consists of rolling hills, woods, farms and farm land. We are about as far away from the hectic life as you can get in Ohio (although there are some wilder areas in southern Ohio). There are miles of gravel roads in the area with low traffic, suitable for biking, walking or horseback riding.

The owners live within 1.5 miles and encourage guests to enjoy the farm sights at both locations. Our amount of interaction with you is controlled by you. You can have the peace and quiet, or spend time on the farm with us - it's up to you.

Come See What the Farm is All About: Our main farm is located within walking or riding distance, about 1.5 miles from the Weston House. We primary keep the stock at our farm, and are doing hay/corn on the Weston Farm. If you like animals, we'd be really happy to share some of our farming practices and let you visit with the animals. Spring time is the best time to see young animals especially the lambs. We are an authentic farming operation raising registered, grass fed Shorthorn cattle and Katahdin Sheep. We also have horses, chickens, dogs, and cats. Our farm operation focuses on management intensive grazing - or pasture rotations. We move stock approximately every 3 days. Typically we have around 25 cows and calves, and between 40 and 100 sheep. Stock is taken to market usually in the fall. Call for current farm activities.

Hunting Season: We are approximately 20 minutes drive from Woodbury Wildlife Preserve, a Public hunting area. We lease our farms during hunting season and may be able to secure land nearby. Additionally, we have relationships with a couple of Outfitters in the area, and would be happy to refer you to them if you're interested in hunting in the area. Please call for details.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2005

About the owner: My Ex-husband and I operate this vacation rental in rural, central Ohio. Our goal is to have a nice place for people to leave all the city hustle and bustle behind them, and enjoy the simpler life in the country. Frank still operates a working farm within walking distance of the Weston House, and I live nearby. We hope to expand our business someday to include multiple vacation rentals in the central Ohio area to allow me to stop working away from home, and just manage the rentals. Eventually, this will become a family business if our daughter chooses to join us.

Why the Owner Chose Frazeysburg, OH, USA:
I fell in love with the kitchen in this house when we saw it come up for sale. At the time, thinking Bed and Breakfast, I thought this house, with some minor modifications could be the perfect country B&B. Unfortunately, working away from home has limited my time, so we've chosen to operate it as a vacation rental, catering primarily to families and groups of friends that like cozy, unique stays.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
The house sits on 55 acres of farm and pasture ground, which is ideal for nature walks and watching livestock and wildlife. The old cabin of the house adds charm and history to the new, elegant log home. It's a great get away for groups of people who may be family or just friends. Built as a family home, it is a wonderful place to spend a holiday, or even a short weekend and just relax in the simpler way of country living.
