About the property

Historic Rural Cabin Which Accommodates Up To 6 People

Enjoy a truly unique lodging experience in this relocated and resurrected c. 1820 log house and c. 1840 addition. Moved from Coshocton County, Ohio to our location in Tuscarawas County, the main structure recreates a pioneer atmosphere with authentic period furnishings and a romantic cooking fireplace. The adaptive reuse of the timber frame addition combines historic and contemporary aesthetics with modern conveniences.

Whatever your style or preference, we aim to make your stay at our cabin a truly unique and aesthetically pleasing experience.

Located within the heart of Amish country, just 9 miles from Sugarcreek, Ohio and 19 miles from Berlin, Ohio our 150-acre farm and cabin offers convenience to great area attractions, but most of all prized, private tranquility and seclusion. Come, get away to a different era or relax with modern amenities. Sit in the log house and feel what it may have been like to live on the Ohio frontier. Imagine the workings of an authentically reproduced stone cooking fireplace but use the well-equipped up-to-date kitchen. Experience sleeping on an authentic rope bed or spread out on a contemporary queen-sized mattress. We offer a great location to read, write, make art, hike, observe nature or just relax.

Whether you are looking for a getaway by yourself, as a couple or with your entire family, we can accommodate you. The air-conditioned log house provides sleeping arrangements for up to six people. The main room has a full-sized rope bed and the second floor bedroom contains a queen-sized bed. A fold down futon couch is located in the sleeping loft of the addition.

The timber frame addition has a fully equipped eat-in kitchen with solid wood counter tops, sitting area with comfortable reading chairs, a satellite TV with VCR and a private bathroom with great corner shower. There is also a washer and dryer for your convenience.

About Doug McGlumphy and Jennifer Greer

Doug McGlumphy and Jennifer Greer have been married for 24 years and enjoy working and developing our family farm. Doug works as an artist and educator while Jennifer works as an academic advisor. Both enjoy raising their two sons and passing on the property's history to the next generation.

Doug McGlumphy and Jennifer Greer purchased this cabin in 1997

Why Doug McGlumphy and Jennifer Greer chose Ohio

Our cabin is located on 150 acres of rolling farmland in the Stucky Valley, of Tuscarawas County, Ohio. Originally settled in the 1830's by the Moomaw family, the farm was purchased in 1903 by Doug's great-grandparents, German farmers, Jacob and Emma Hisrich. It has remained in our family for over 110 years.

The farm subsequently passed down to Doug's grandparents, Laura and Vernon Hisrich who lived, raised a family and farmed the property for many decades. After their deaths the main house, outbuildings and land remained underutilized for many years and fell into decline until we purchased them, along with Doug's parents, Ed and Pat (Hisrich) McGlumphy in 1997.

In addition to the built environment, the farm consists of approximately 60% tillable land and 40% woods. In an effort to preserve the property as farmland, a local farmer uses the fields to plant crops for his dairy farm. The remainder acts as a bird sanctuary, as well as habitat for local wildlife.

We enjoy our farm and its family history and invite you to come and enjoy its peacefulness and tranquility with us. It is a labor of love and continues to be an ever-evolving endeavor. There is always something new to look at with each subsequent visit as we always have a new project in the works.

What makes this cabin unique

Our cabin and rural setting offers a truly unique experience for couples, families or friends to get away and relax. We even have a baseball field, hiking trails and an art gallery right outside your front door. Come and enjoy!

A step back in time

  • 5 of 5

I booked this cabin for my husband's 50th birthday on Memorial weekend. We love historical places and old cabins. When we walked through the front door, it was like stepping back in time. Just what we were looking for. Doug greeted us when we arrived which gave us a chance to ask questions about the restoration process, etc. Very welcoming and helpful.

The cabin has everything you need and is quite cozy. Decorated nicely while keeping with the era. We really enjoyed our stay. If you enjoy older log cabins and a step back in time - you will love this place. We sure did. Thanks, Doug and Jennifer for sharing your cabin with us. Jenny and Rodney Tignor - Elkview, WV

Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife an I stayed here for 4 nights and it was wonderful. After talking to Doug about where we could walk around he pointed out some paths up the hill next to the cabin. So we decide to venture out. We did find out that walking up that hill is a great work out. We basically used this as a base and ventured out to the local towns. It was a truly relaxing trip. We would most definitely recommend this to others.

Owner's Response: We are glad you enjoyed your stay at the log house! The hike in the woods is an uphill climb on the first half, but it's all downhill on the way back to the cabin. It's definitely a scenic workout! Glad you found the many nice towns around our area and thank you for leaving the cabin so clean upon your departure. We hope to see you again in the future. Thanks again, Doug and Jenn

Quaint, secluded cabin perfect for R&R

  • 5 of 5

Quiet, peaceful place to "unplug". Breakfast treats are delicious. Doug and Jenn respect your privacy and let you make the most if your time away. Adventure is not far away if you want to get out and do something or go for a good meal.
