About Shane Bocock: Owner / Property Manager
Ever since they were kids, both Shane and Melissa spent a lot of time outdoor in the woods on family camping trips, hiking, canoeing and fishing. It was always their dream to do the same with their kids. In 2006, Shane and Melissa had their first child, a beautiful baby boy. They decided that Shane would quit teaching high school chemistry and stay at home to take care of their son. About the same time, Shane and Melissa purchased a 42 acre plot of land near Warsaw, Ohio. During the next three years, the Bocock Family grew with the addition of two daughters and they spent a lot of time hiking, fishing, picking berries, camping, relaxing and saving money. During this time, they also thought how nice it would be to build a cabin that Shane--while still staying home with the kids--could rent out, allowing others to enjoy the beauty of the property. With the state of the economy, the idea was both exciting and scary. However, in the spring of 2011, Shane and Melissa felt the time was right. They wanted to build something special that would add to the already unique property. The Woodbury Cabin was started in June of 2011 and finished by the end of October the same year. Within days of listing the cabin rental online, calls started coming in. By 2014, with all dates filling up yearly at the Woodbury Cabin, Shane and Melissa decided it was time to add another rental. They came across a farmhouse that bordered the Mohican Forest in early 2015. They immediately fell in love with it, bought it, and turned it into a nightly vacation rental called the Mohican Farmhouse.

What makes this Farmhouse unique
There are so many favorites with the farmhouse, it's hard to decide what to do when you get there. The covered front porch has rockers and a relaxing swing overlooking the pond. The pond always has a gentle breeze that sings as it sneaks through pine trees that nestle it on two sides. The pastures are always green with roaming llamas, sheep, goats and chickens. The screened in porch is a great place to have dinner out in the fresh air overlooking the farm and forest. There is a large comfy leather chair in the master bedroom that is a favorite spot to sit and read one of the many books available at the farmhouse. The gas fireplace is very realistic and there is so much room to spread out on the leather sectional in the living room. The cottage is so cozy, quiet and private with great views of the llamas, pond and forest.

We chose the farmhouse for our annual Girls' Getaway the first weekend in November, 2018. There were 7 of us from ages 18 mo. to 83. There was plenty of space and the beds were very comfortable. It was a little chilly, but we wrapped up in blankets and sat out on the porch. On Saturday night we sat outside by the fire and made smores. We loved being around the animals and the QUIET. Stairs might be a little steep for some, but we were fine. We loved our weekend here!
So close to many fun towns to go explore. Convenients stores close by. Mohican state park very close
The house and property, wonderful. The animals added a warm and fuzzy element to the stay. You can tell the owners love their farm, by how they care for it. My friends and I would for sure return for another stay. We have been going on our fall trip for 14 years. This is one of the top 2 places we have ever stayed in.
Incredible time had by all and definitely a place you want to check out!
My sisters, brother, and I arrived at the Mohican Farmhouse on October 7th, 2018 for a week-long SIBLING REUNION and we could NOT have picked a better place to have it! Just seeing a picture of the farmhouse brings back such wonderful memories of the times we enjoyed there together for the first time in 24 years. We appreciated that the house was secluded and fell in love with not only the house but ALL of the animals and, I must admit, I miss them since feeding them was such an enjoyable part of our stay. We are all "young" senior citizens so we truly enjoyed the peace and quiet away from the hustle/bustle of life itself. Ultimately, the farmhouse was EVERYTHING we wanted it to be and it was a little like being "home" again as children. One of our most enjoyable experiences was working really hard to get in and out of the paddle boat but, once in, we had a riot and laughed so hard that we cried! I can honestly say that I have had many vacations in my lifetime, but this will ALWAYS be remembered as the BEST because the farmhouse was like home and the company the best anyone could ever want! My family and I are so grateful to have found this place and hope to visit it again. A special thanks goes to Shane and his family for offering such a wonderful place to stay and to Uncle Jeff for all of his hard work keeping it clean and well maintained. If anyone is looking for a place to "feel at home" then you need to consider the Mohican Farmhouse!
We had a great stay here with family! Our toddler was kept busy with the kittens and box of toys for our whole trip! Perfect place to stay with kids as the animals and outdoor space provide plenty of entertainment and space to run around. A great little getaway.
We loved staying at your Mohican Farmhouse. The screened in porch was a wonderful place for our family to sit and talk. Having breakfast in our PJ's is so much better than separate hotel rooms. Thanks for everything!
Great family vacation!
We rented the house to celebrate my dad's 80th birthday. If you are looking for a place that's peaceful, quiet and relaxing, this is the place for you! The house had plenty of space, beautiful grounds and everything we needed. The front and back porches were perfect places for meals, reading, games and naps (note: the back porch can get fairly hot during the day). Even though our kids are older (youngest is 16), the barn animals were a big hit (especially--the 3 cats)! By the time we left, we all wanted to take the little orange kitten home. And the pond proved to be a perfect spot for my dad to do some afternoon fishing (he caught several bass so he was happy).
It's clear that Shane and his whole family enjoy sharing this beautiful house with others. We had only one minor issue and both he (and Uncle Jeff!) responded promptly. They also spent time chatting with us, which we really enjoyed.
Thank you for helping to make this such a great family vacation and birthday celebration for my dad. Hopefully, we will be able to return sometime again in the future!
