About RC Barnhart

Currently a network tech from Athens, OH. Grew up in the area and enjoy Burr Oak State Park.

RC Barnhart purchased this cabin in 2012

Why RC Barnhart chose Ohio

We resurrected this little cabin in the summer of 2012. We gutted it and upgraded the electric, plumbing, added a master bedroom and engineered a bonus loft space that gives the cabin a beautiful, open feeling. It's been a fun project and we are continually tweaking and upgrading.

My wife and I wanted our own cozy place to get away and thought while we are not using it we can let others enjoy the space. From the red oak mantle and hickory beams, to the cherry and walnut custom ladder up to the loft, I think there are elements in this cabin that can not be found at any other cabin. A lot of time, energy and love was put into building this home.

What makes this cabin unique

Rustic yet modern (many wood details and accents)



Blu-ray w/ surround sound

Winter Vacation-Winter Hiking

  • 5 of 5

We came to the area to enjoy the great winter hiking that is offered. The house is very cool and you can tell the owners have put time and love into the refurbishment of the place. Very small details have been attended to. The place was clean and linens were satisfactory. One room on the first floor with a big bed and then a second room with twin bunk beds. The other loft room is up a ladder and there's a double mattress up there. It overlooks the tv room so you can watch the tele from the loft. Kitchen is good for small meals and you can BBQ. I eat at the lodge. Back porch is great and in the morning you can hear the wildlife if you sit quietly out there. It is a private porch. The hot tub is not on the porch but on a platform located about 30 feet from the back door. Its kind of like a viewing platform that looks into the woods. However it was hot and very clean. The owners change the water for each guest which is nice and sanitary. Owners are just a call or text away if you need them but otherwise you will have privacy. I love this place and I recommend it just about anyone except the elderly, the handicapped, or tourists without a car. The rock stairs that lead to the house are beautiful but could be difficult for seniors or disabled. I highly recommend spending time at the Burr Oak Lodge for meals and the at the reservoir itself. In winter when snow and ice is present you must have AWD or 4x4 to get to this unit. Our friend who has a car and not an SUV with AWD had to be picked up at lodge. The hiking is first class in this area. The Burr Oak loop and the Wildcat Hollow Loop provide 40 miles of contiguous hiking. There is marinas to rent boats and good fishing too. You are also not to far from Athens which has many fine places. I do intend to return to this cabin as soon as possible.
