About Owner/Property Manager

As an interior designer I saw the potential for saving and restoring this little cabin. It was almost 2 years of hard work. I rent it out to help pay for the cost of my restoration and to let others enjoy this little place as much as I do. Its is my favorite place to be. My design studio and home are just a few miles away from Dog Trot which makes it easy to manage. I really enjoy meeting all the nice people that have stayed at my cabin. Many guest have returned back for multiple stays. Some guest have left behind a nice note telling me how much they enjoyed staying at Dog Trot Cabin...which makes all of my hard work worth while.

Owner/Property Manager purchased this Cabin in 1989

                                                                    We had a wonderful time. Ann made contact before we arrived and provided with clear directions to secluded location in the middle of Cleveland. The cabin was wonderful, cozy and so tastefully decorated. The outdoor living area contained Adirondack chairs where we relaxed in the sun and watched the squirrels and birds in the trees. There were directions provided which made clear how to operate the HVAC and the unique cooktop. The WIFI was rock solid. We had barely left the driveway before we were discussing when we could arrange a return.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

You feel like you are miles away from everything, but you are close to town. The cabin itself is amazing, the interior is nicely decorated and fully equipped with everything you need for your stay. We will return again and again.

                                                                    Owner's Response:

                                                                    What a wonderful place to spend our anniversary! The hosts were extremely accommodating and helpful. The cabin feels like it's isolated and in the middle of nowhere, but it was only minutes from downtown Cleveland. Highly recommend for a romantic getaway, or just a weekend away from the city. We will definitely stay here again if we are ever back in the area!

                                                                    One of the best places we've ever stayed!

The cabin was gorgeous. The location was close to everything but felt like we were away from everything. Definitely will stay again and highly recommend.

                                                                    Caren O.Land O Lakes, FL

                                                                    This beautiful little cabin is located in the city, but you'd think you were up in the mountains. The property was meticulously maintained and so quiet. I even saw a cute little chipmunk on an old log and then he disappeared into the sprawling ivy covering the ground.

                                                                    The inside of the cabin was decorated very nicely and there were fresh flowers in several rooms as well as soothing music and petty lamps on when we arrived. We immediately felt welcome and the stress of the 10 hour drive quickly disappeared as we settled in for the first of six nights.

                                                                    Thank you, Anne, for allowing us to enjoy your cabin and I looked through your albums and saw all the hard work that went into restoring this beauty.

                                                                    We look forward to visiting again if it's avaowhen we come back to see our family.

Anne even texted us on Saturday to let us know there was an Apple Festival taking place on the square. From driving up the driveway it was the most amazing scenery. The cabin was so romantic. We highly recommended it.
