Built in 1895, our 2100sq ft single family home is warm and comfy for an overnight or weekend stay located in the Arts Historic District of Nelsonville and close to Ohio University, Stuart's Opera House, Hocking College and the Nelsonville Music Festival are close by. You rent our entire newly renovated home giving you central cooling, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, an additional full/queen air mattress, a fully equipped chef's kitchen stocked with Hershey's and Ghirardelli cocoa great for hot chocolate as well as Starbucks coffee beans for a fresh roasted coffee. The well-dressed dining room is perfect for family gatherings as well as a large front porch, a great living room, den with tv and wifi and google home--Just say, "Hey Google...", a huge deck for stargazing and cooking out, a charcoal grill and a therapeutic hot tub on a covered porch. This home is fully furnished and is situated next to the Wayne Forest, golf courses and minutes from Lake Hope State Park in Zaleski State Forest. You will find miles of trails for hiking and mountain biking and Lake Hope is perfect for fishing, canoeing, kayaking, picnicking and swimming. The entire home is yours to enjoy. We will be close by, but not in the house with you.
Nelsonville, Ohio was settled by a man with the last name of Nelson from Shrewsbury, MA. The town has the feel of a New England hamlet with a deep history of Appalachian culture, mining, and the industrial revolution.
Rhapsody Restaurant is very affordable offering delicious food prepared by a culinary program and has a full bar and diverse selection of wines. It is in walking distance to the house and next to the Stuart's Opera House. Ohio University and the Hocking Hills caves/trails are within 15-25 minutes of the house. You are centrally located to enjoy all this area has to offer!
Small snacks are available for you during your stay.
We are a professional family and looking to share our home with similar. There's no smoking in our home. Quiet hours are between 10PM-8AM on weekdays, and 11:30PM-9AM on weekends. Please be aware this is a neighborhood and sound travels well. Also, please do not exceed the amount of guests decided on during your stay. We will be close by but not in the house with you.
The house is fully insulated from top to bottom and the roof is made of the original slate tile.
For those that have sensitivities to allergies (as I do):
Because this is an older home, all walls in the house have brand new paint, all carpet has been removed (other than area rugs) from the main house and hard-woods refinished. There are hypoallergenic pillows on all the beds. The bedding is designer and covered with down-alternative bedspreads. You will find this home comfy and unique nestled in the foothills of the Appalachian mountains and culture.
