Located among the rollings hills and active farms among the Amish and Yankee communities of Burton, Parkman and Middlefield, The Farm House is a cozy retreat, ideal for a relaxed country vacation for couples or small groups of friends and family. There are 3 bedrooms upstairs with the full bathroom and one bedroom and the half bath on the ground floor.
You can watch the Amish farmer cultivate his crops from the kitchen window, or if you are lucky you may see a doe and fawns approach the lake as you step out of the shower. The books and cable TV, DVDs and Videos, Internet and jigsaw puzzles, popcorn and the fireplace can turn rain and snow into a pleasant backdrop.
Bring your camera and binoculars and fishing pole. You can see birds from cardinals to wild canaries, and the lake was dredged and restocked a couple of years ago.
Our Amish care taker grew up in The Farm House before it became a vacation rental. You can hike past the lake, through the woods and down the dirt road to his home if you like or even watch the milking at the dairy farm nearby.
Keywords: The Farm House, Parkman, Ohio is a step back in time - with modern conveniences - on 100 acres of rolling hills, fields, woodlands and lake. Enjoy fireplace or the swing on the enclosed sunporch and listen to the clip clop of Amish buggy horses passing by.

About the owner: I love this part of the country in all seasons and so it is a treat to have to come back a couple of times a year to take care of putting things in order and replenishing supplies. These trips make a wonderful change from my exciting work in an urban nonprofit on the west coast.
Why the Owner Chose Middlefield, OH, USA:
I love to share The Farm House with people who enjoy the peace there as much as I do. It has been in our family for 70 years now and we turned it into a vacation rental about 10 years ago.
The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
My favorite walk is around the lake, checking out the turtles on the rock to the north, and trying not to startle the blue herons as they feed by the dam. I savor the silence in the woods, broken only by birdsong and the occasional dog bark far in the distance.
