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
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.
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!
doug and jen have made dreams come true for anyone who is lucky enough to visit their amazing historic cabin. we celebrated my 50th birthday in the most memorable way imaginable! arrived to a beautiful sunny fall day perfect to enjoy the trails, lake and views. leaving with snow falling around us and covering the grounds. this could not possibly be a more perfect get away for anyone! thank you for making this possible <3 lisa and todd hackbarth
We really enjoyed our stay here! The cabin is a great piece of history, and the surrounding countryside is beautiful. There isn't much traffic or noise, and it's so peaceful. The owners called us to welcome us and also to say goodbye when we were checking out, and left us some goodies in the fridge. They have a great cabin and a wonderful property. If you like peace, quiet, and seclusion, this cabin will be perfect for you!
I would consider the Hisrich Cabin a hybrid between a private rental and a bed & breakfast. You are greeted with a gathering of eggs, milk, juice and muffins/coffee cake in the fridge, plus dry cereals and coffee for a breakfast supply that outlasted my stay. The owners are on the property and are readily available to chat or assist you in any way, but at the same time provide you with enough space and freedom that you feel like you are alone. The details to the reconstruction of this amazing log home are wonderful. It is a warm blend of a "rustic" pioneer flavor with modern conveniences. A flock of wild turkeys entertained me outside the window while I ate dinner followed by a passing deer. Quite clean, comfy bed and fluffy towels. Wouldn't change a thing.
This tucked away cabin is not only beautiful but an immaculate and homey place in seclusion to enjoy. The added breakfast items were a great plus! Thank you! We truly enjoyed our stay and will be back!!
This home is like stepping back in time. It was the perfect get away from it all. Only one thing I would change because we only went for 2 nights we went out to eat and brought back left overs. It would have been great to have a small microwave hidden in a cupboard. But other than that you could want for nothing. Very romantic and very relaxing. The owners were very helpful and informative. Look forward for a longer trip next year.
This fabulous find has been lovingly restored and recreated even better with modern conveniences in the addition of the cabin! We came in the "back" way, via GPS directions, from the South; however, to our delight, it happened to be a scenic route. The hosts are gracious, hospitable, and generous. Local muffins and farm fresh eggs were waiting in the refrigerator, upon our arrival. (Thank you)
To see this cabin is to fall in love with a moment in history. We are so thankful that the opportunity to visit this cabin.
However, next time we hope to get more opportunities for exploration. We will be back and definitely recommend this destination for a romantic getaway.
