About Carol Haramis

I am the 5th generation to live and work on our 167 year old farm. I grew up playing in the barns, swimming in our sandstone quarry and riding the fields on my horses. My husband , George, and I grow Christmas trees and daylilies and we hold a month long Fall Festival in October called Pumpkin Pandemonium. In my 'free' time I love to garden, hike and volunteer with dog rescue.Our family includes 3 rescue cats and 3 rescue dogs. We have lived and worked all over the world but the beauty and tranquility of the farm, the Village of Peninsula and the Cuyahoga Valley always calls us home.

Carol Haramis purchased this apartment in 1848

What makes this apartment unique

I love the farm for it's beautiful gardens, secluded trails in the woods and the rolling Christmas tree fields surrounding the old farmhouse. The front porch is a great place to greet the day with a hot cup of coffee. Relaxing on the gazebo watching sunset with a glass of wine or a soft drink is the perfect end to the day. And if you like to be outdoors after dark you can tell stories around the fire pit or join a night bike ride on the CVNP Towpath Trail.The farm is a great place to base for hiking or biking in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Downhill Skiing and snowboarding can be found 2 miles away and there is access to National Park cross country ski trails right here on the farm. Downtown Peninsula with it's shops, restaurants, galleries and museums is less than 1/2 mile away.We are located 15 minutes from theaters, malls, museums, county and national parks and much much more. The city of Akron is 20 minutes to the south and Cleveland is 25-30 minutes north with highway access to both places only 2 miles away.

Quiet, Quaint, & Quintessential

  • 5 of 5

We fell in love with this place the moment we saw it on VRBO. Upon arrival, it far exceeded our expectations. The 'apartment' was well equipped and a nice place to call our "home base". The farm is centrally located and perfect for visiting other parts of Ohio. We spent an evening dining in Cleveland and two days hiking the falls in Dublin and Cuyahoga Falls. A lovely place to reconnect with nature.

Great Property

  • 5 of 5

This rental is one of the nicer ones we have stayed at. Everything we needed was there, enjoyed relaxing in front of the fireplace, driving into the town and seeing all the beautiful fall foliage. Carol was very easy to work with and answered any and all questions we had. We would certainly tell family and friends about the property and what a great weekend we had.

Heritage Farms - a hidden gem...definitely recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed for 5 days/4 nights at Heritage Farms in Peninsula and had a great time! We weren't sure what to expect as the main picture is of the house, yet the write-up referenced 'apartment'. While the apartment is somewhat attached, it is clearly your own private space including the private entrance and private grilling and patio area. We enjoyed walking around the farm, listening to the coyotes in the distance and sitting by the firelight. It's also in a great location if you plan to bike or hike in Cuyahoga Valley National Park, take the scenic railroad or even ski in Boston Mills during the winter. We also made a side trip to the Cleveland Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and the Christmas Story House on an overcast day. The apartment was very clean, well appointed and Carol thought of everything to make our stay comfortable! She was also helpful with suggestions on things to do and see in the area. We plan to recommend it to friends of ours, as Heritage Farms, the national park and the hiking/biking trails are conveniently located to each others.
