About the property

Home Sleeps 18 + ( 2300 sq. ft.) and 14 Picturesque Acres Can Host More

This beautiful, private, non-smoking, pet-free Vacation home is located on a 14 acre, working tree farm in the very heart of Year Round Activity! Far enough from the hustle and bustle of city life, yet just a short drive from Columbus, Cleveland or Pittsburgh. This pristine location is ideal for your well-deserved rejuvenation, relaxation and reconnecting with your family or friends.

This home is directly across the street from the river that is the Canoe Capitol of the United States! There is a 7 mile canoe ‘trail’– perfect for most, or a 19 mile trip for those more adventurous, or 60 miles for those hard-core folks! A very short drive to boating, fishing, waterskiing, wakeboarding, etc… at Pleasant Hill Lake.

This home is in the stunning countryside of central Ohio on the edge of Mohican State Park. This is an ideal vacation destination for families or individuals of all ages. If you want to get away from city life, to a clean and beautifully decorated home, explore nature, wilderness, and plenty of wildlife, this is the place! This is the kind of ideal relaxing vacation spot of which memories are made. It is conveniently located just 80 miles from the heart of Cleveland, and 70 miles from downtown Columbus, Ohio. From Pittsburgh, head straight west for just a bit over 2.5 hours and you will find yourself in this mountain paradise.

A perfect setting for a MOST beautiful Proposal, Wedding Day, Vow Renewals, Family Reunion, Wedding, Baby Shower, Company Picnic, etc! Call for Event Pricing. (No bachelor/bachelorette parties, please)

Wedding pricing begins at $5,000. and includes the home for the usual weekend timeframe.

Please note that we reserve the right to refuse service at our discretion.

The Barn at Running River has been the host of a few choice Weddings, so no 'run of the mill' wedding day here! You are not likely to end up with the same wedding photos as the rest of the world, and your memories will be breathtaking! If you want something no one has seen yet, call 419-777-1720 to discuss your big day at this wonderfully kept secret.


Indulge yourself in this 2300 sq. feet with all the comforts of home. This very private two story home boasts a second story deck situated on a private Spruce Tree Farm surrounded by woods, hills, nature, wildlife and the Mohican River right across the street.

The Bunk Room can accommodate up to 8 adults quite comfortably and possibly more small humans, & 2 Private Queen bedrooms are just across the hall. Downstairs there are 3 Queen sofa beds as well. The 2 baths come fully equipped with plush linens, hair dryer, some toiletries and integrated child toilet seats when needed.

All bath and bed linens are provided. Please bring your own beach towels. All you need is your swimsuits, clothing and personal items. There is a very nice, new, clean laundromat just behind the Marathon station at the end of the road for your personal laundry.

Ground Floor:

A fully-equipped kitchen exits to a large, covered back porch with seating and eating accommodations for 20 or more. The bar/dining room seats 16 or more. The living room has comfortable chairs for conversation, a loveseat and sofa, and TV w/DVD player. The Game Room boasts a gas fireplace, a Pool Table and a FoosBall Table & plenty of cards and board games and childrens toys. You’ll want to ‘unplug’ and enjoy some good old-fashioned fun.

Enjoy your mornings with a coffee and breakfast on the front porch rockers, back porch, backyard patio or rooftop deck. Gear up for the day and possibly view bald eagles, deer and turkey grazing in peace out back as the sun stretches across the rolling hills.

Head down to the river for a day of absolute riotous fun. Bring your inner tubes, water wings or floating toys. Alcohol is permitted on the river, but MUST be in cans or plastic and NO LITTERING.

Sun worshippers can lie around basking on the oversized sundeck while the rest of your group splashes in the river and climbs or hikes. Most of our days are spent rolling down the hills, hiking, loving nature or cruising the river. Bring your camera for some of the best photo opportunities ever.

In the evening, grab your favorite wine, cocktail, beverage and great company and head up to the firepit overlooking the fabulous farm (Firewood is available at gas stations, stores and driveways all through town. PLEASE DO NOT TRANSPORT FIREWOOD from out of this area!)



Absolutely NO firearms/fireworks are to be brought to the property.

You are not permitted to drive/park any motorized vehicles anywhere other than the gravel driveway areas.

There is no smoking in the home & no pets are to be brought to the property. A violation of these policies will result in immediate eviction of all guests.

This is a working farm. Expect to see farm activity.



General Area:

Ideal area for taking leisurely walks, serious hikes or some long country bike rides. The warm months are alive with river activity and the nearby lake is full of boaters, skiers, wakeboarders and fisherman. The weekdays are quieter and more serene.

Visit a local farm for fresh produce or dine at one of the many fine dining establishments in the area. There are several local stores for supplies, firewood, gas and groceries just down the road a bit.

Lately, many seek a country vacation where they can find comfort and serenity - somewhere they can escape from it all, and most importantly somewhere to spend quality time with family and friends. You have just found your ideal country vacation spot!

Perfect gathering spot for the entire family

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our time at Running River Farm. There were 15 of us and there was plenty of room. We prepared an early Thanksgiving dinner and I can not say enough on how well the kitchen was supplied with pots, pans, dishes, silverware and cooking utensils. The game room is a must see! There is plenty to keep everyone entertained. Kelly even took the time to show a few of us to some great spots to take photographs. The scenery is absolutely beautiful. A special thank you for fixing the hot tub for our stay. We hope to hold future family events at the Farm!!

The personal touches Kelli adds to the home are awesome. From sunflower seeds to salt water taffy to the fully stocked pantry and medicine cabinets, this house had everything we needed and more! Our family had a great time here:) Thanks for the hospitality!

Surprise Birthday

  • 5 of 5

Lovely spot for surprise birthday gathering of long time friends.

We were very grateful for the newly installed air conditioning, as it wound up being hot/humid.

Fabulous dining/game table and covered porch with extra tables for morning coffee and chatting.

Kelli very kindly provided concierge service and a beautiful gift for our friend as well!

At home at Mohican

  • 5 of 5

I booked this home for two nights and altogether we had 5 families. We found the home exceptional. It was very clean, had plenty of linens, firewood waiting for us in the pit, and little welcome amenities that made us feel right at home. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed to cook for our big group. The home is beautiful and very private. I recommend this rental home to any larger group looking for a nice place to stay close to everything that Mohican has to offer. If our travels bring us back to the area, we will come back here in a heartbeat.
