About the Property

Custom Getaway managed by The Sanctuary-1 Hr From Cincy In Beautiful Adam's

FREE weeknight!! Book 3 weekday nights and get the fourth one Free!! You don't have to be born in a barn, to vacation in one!! You will love the Old-world charm, located on a secluded dead end road in the midst of scenic Brush Creek State Forest! You enter your property over a custom made, curved-rail bridge, onto the large covered front porch that overlooks the stocked pond, and Tener mountain. Grill your dinner there or light a fire under the stars in the outdoor fire pit...Free firewood provided! Master bedroom is 420 sq.ft. with Amish king bed, and a 55" T.V. Bathroom boasts a Rainfall custom tiled shower, old-fashioned freestanding soaking tub, and washer/dryer. Living room features cedar shake designed interior, cat-napper reclining love seat and custom stone gas fireplace with 43" flat screen T.V. Satellite TV, Free WiFi, and Free long-distance phone service are provided. The kitchen features ample cabinet space, top of the line gas stove, microwave, fridge, and breakfast counter. All linens provided, along with dishes, utensils, pots, pans, spices, coffee etc. Everything is here--just bring yourselves! Or bring your friends and their pop-up camper...park and set-up on gravel pad and hook into our electric for just $15 extra per day!
Adams County is a natural "Gem." re-connect with nature as Golden eagles can be seen soaring above, Kingfishers dive for a meal, & late summer brings the monarch butterflies that visit the purple iron weed (what a photo!) Wild red columbine, and wild orchids can be found, along with morels, and wild ginger, trillium, mayflowers, and paw-paws. As you walk off the property into the forest, and hike down the flat road, whitetail and wild turkeys come into view.
The many nature preserves are the trademark of Adams County and are close, and must be seen. Davis memorial forest, Chapparal Prairie, The Edge of Appalachia Preserve, Johnson Ridge nature preserve, Robert Whipple nature preserve, and the Shoemaker nature preserve, are just a few...all keeping Adams County WILD! Slow down and watch for buggies as you head to Amish country. And visit the Amish community of Wheat Ridge. Visit their shops, and well kept farms. And don't forget the homemade turnovers and donuts! You can follow the quilt barn trail, Morgan's raiders trail, or check out covered bridges as you see Adams county from the back road...the way it should be seen. Head south and see mother natures, Shawnee forest the " Smokies of Ohio." Fish, rent a boat, or if you want wild, fill up the tank and take a slow drive through the secluded wilderness area, maybe see a bobcat, or black bear, or eagle. Then head to the Scioto ribber, for great steak and yes...ribs.
Head south west for history, and the home of the underground railroad. Reverend Rankin & freed slave John Parker were instrumental in hiding slaves on their journey to Canada. Both homes are national historic landmarks. The proud people of Ripley fought off Morgan's raiders and stopped them from entering Ripley! Eliza from the book Uncle Tom's Cabin was real, and found refuge here. Need more history? Try Serpent Mound and Fort Hill, both ancient Indian earthworks, located near Amish Country. Serpent mound built at the site of an ancient meteor recently has had crop circles, and strange siting in the sky, and has been reported to be the site of the Garden of Eden (as seen on America Unearthed) and has been estimated to be built 5000 B.C. ! (The time of Stonehenge) Thousands flock here in the summer and fall to witness the alignments. And Fort Hill is still a mystery today. We've got it all! See everything or just relax and do nothing in your forest retreat! You decide. Try Adams County's Finest, The Red Barn and we promise you will return!

Year Purchased: 2015

Why the Owner Chose Peebles, OH, USA:
We wanted to offer a unique experience to vacationers, and so came up with the idea of a barn vacation rental. Looks like a barn on the outside, but has brand-new full amenities on the inside!! You don't have to be " born in a barn" to vacation in one!

The Unique Benefits at this Barn:
Situated in a secluded, private setting in the forest, overlooking a pond - what more could you ask for??? Build a campfire, and fish in your own acreage, catfish, bass, and bluegill, are ready. Play corn hole, or relax on the covered deck, it's your private retreat! your "staycation" Enjoy.
