The Feathered Nest

What is "glamping" you ask? It's where one combines camping and glamour into an outdoor experience. And in case you didn't know, "glamping" also happens to be one of the fastest growing trends in the hospitality industry today! So come and experience it for yourself. You will love this away-from-everything experience that brings you the outdoors and then adds indoor amenities such as a one-of-a-kind custom made queen bed; Seally Posturepedic Memory Foam pillows with cooling pads; high thread count sheets; luxury linens; sprays and soaps; always fresh flowers; screened in side porch, mood lighting, grill, private bathroom, private outdoor shower, and USB portable power pack for charging electronics. NO we don't have AC. This cottage is off the grid which means no electric. HOWEVER, this cottage design was selected as Country Living Magazine's top 10 cottages for 2015. My husband is a custom builder and custom built this cottage to our specifications for a "glamping cottage off the grid, so we made sure that it is cool and comfortable with 3 windows, one side of room opens to the woods with a screened in porch and there are screened vents for cross breezes all across ceiling. Plus, there is a ceiling fan & two O2Cool bedside fans to assure you are cool and comfortable. If you love the feel of the outdoors but don't like gathering and packing of all the needed items for camping, plus think how long it takes to pack it all and then return home to unpack it all. Then, you've got to try our Feathered Nest Cottage! We have designed this sweet little cottage with your comfort and convenience in mind.

About Bill and Nancy Messbarger/ Owners & Hosts

Welcome to Arhaven Bed and Breakfast~ home to Bill and Nancy Messbarger, Hosts and Owners. Our home "Arhaven" started out as our dream home which we designed and had custom built 2006 on land that has belong to my husband's family since 1884. From the moment we picked the spot in the field and designed the floor plan for our future home, it took on this unique and incredible role for us. It became "our haven" from a busy world which is how the name "Arhaven" came to be. As we created landscaped gardens and decorated our home with wonderful and unique finds from our many travels, we noticed friends and visitors continually expressing to us how amazing and beautiful our place had become and that our home would make a wonderful bed and breakfast. Was it the continual encouragement that finally convinced us to really make our home into a bed and breakfast? Possibly~ I know it certainly played a part, but in our hearts and dreams Bill and I have wanted to do this for years. So ...we decided to move forward. We created a luxury suite in the main house and custom designed & built a new cottage for the B & B at the edge of the woods. We've spent the last year creating Arhaven B & B. Staying diligent to our vision of what we want our B& B to be to our guests! Our goal was to open June 1, 2015! So as planned on June 1, 2015, we held our ribbon cutting and began our journey as B & B owners of Arhaven Bed and Breakfast! We can honestly express to you that although we have only been open for less than two months our guests have been amazing, thoughtful and so appreciative of our Arhaven. We have made wonderful new friends and we are loving the journey!

We were completely spoiled during our two night stay at the Feathered Nest. Every last detail was so meticulously thought out down to the bedding, lighting, cabin design, decor, and of course, the breakfast! It rained the entire time we were there, but we took advantage of being off the grid to talk and read. We had two heaters available so we were cozy and dry. Nancy went out of her way to make sure our stay was great. She gave us a list of restaurants and links to different activities, prepared delicious breakfasts, and even came out to turn on the heaters while we were out so the cabin would be warm when we returned. The level of genuine customer service and the beautiful accommodations have us already planning when we can return. Thank you Nancy & Bill!

Enjoying The Nest

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I attended a wedding in Hocking Hills this past weekend. When searching for a place to stay last April, we saw The Feathered Nest Cottage. Since there is no electricity, thus no a/c, in the cottage, we had our doubts about staying there for the wedding. Our doubts were that we would be a sweaty mess while dressing for the occasion. After speaking with Nancy, we were assured that many others had their doubts about the lack of a/c, but survived with pleasant surprises. We are now one of those survivors. The weekend was just lovely! We enjoyed Saturday on the porch reading with a hummingbird flying near to us. Two woodpeckers were in the trees behind us. A preying mantis eyeballed us most of the day before venturing into the bushes below the porch (she returned Sunday morning with a bit more liveliness when she was not sure about us taking her picture). The breakfasts were very delicious and we were so honored to have them delivered to the doorstep of the cottage each morning by Nancy and Bill. It is obvious that their home, along with the cottage and B & B, is a labor of love. They greeted us with smiles from the moment we arrived. The quiet and peacefulness of star gazing at night was just another positive in the experience. There is much thought, hard work and detail completed to make visitors feel welcomed and happy. That the cottage is very "green" with the composting and outdoor shower was a definite positive too. Nancy and Bill, thank you for a wonderful weekend!

Owner's Response: Becky and Mike~ THANK YOU for such a great review! You are so right when you expressed this is a labor of love for us! We know Arhaven Bed and Breakfast is a business, but for us it's just welcoming guests to our home and sharing what we enjoy everyday! Like the little preying mantis~ I know she's not as pretty to look at as the little Wren bird who has made her nest on the porch cottage but she too has picked the Feathered Nest as her home and it just tickles me to see her. She showed up about a week ago and I have moved her from the porch to the woods several times but she too wants to stay at the Feathered Nest!!! Can you blame her? And I love hearing that our guests love all the special details! Hubby Bill use to worry when we first opened up that I was spending too much time on details like(fresh flower arrangements; bed sprays; the way I fold your towels, etc) now he just smiles with each review! Our guests not only express their appreciation but they share the details of the little things they notice and it delights my soul! Heartfelt thanks from us to you~ Bill and Nancy

A nest to relax in while being pampered by great hosts.

  • 5 of 5

Where do you start. Coming down the drive to the most beautiful yard then making that right turn and seeing the cutest little cabin. Set back into the woods you instantly feel your stress level drop. Bill and Nancy have thought of everything. Even though there is no electricity and no running water you will not miss a thing. After a restful sleep "glamping style," you can hear it coming....a gourmet breakfast. We thank you so much for your hospitality, sharing your lives, and a piece of your Haven. We are spreading the word about this unique experience. Jeff & Sheri Caldwell.

It was serene & well-maintained.

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Nancy were both so sweet & welcoming. They thought of everything to make our first glamping experience, not only painless, but romantic & fun as well. It was a great to unplug and escape from life for awhile. The delicious breakfast delivered right to your door was a nice touch. HIGHLY recommend the Feathered Nest.
