We were wowed!

  • 5 of 5

The Karshner home was spacious, clean and included so much for every age range from grandparent to grandkid everyone was happy and wanted to stay for more! Their attention to detail was not missed - like a first aid kit in bathrooms, cozy throws for cozying up on the couch, and helpful notes strategically placed! Would highly recommend to any family large or small looking for a getaway near some beautiful nature parks!

A perfect, peaceful place for our family reunion

  • 5 of 5

We really loved our time at this Laurelville home. There was plenty of sleeping space for everyone, the kitchen was ideal for big family meals, and there were enough spaces for people to retreat to so that we could have quiet time when we needed it. What made this house perfect was that there was something for everyone: board games, a tree house, room for playing frisbee, a hot tub, a beautiful porch for visiting, a reasonably safe road for running, pool table, ping pong, and more. Nearby Hocking Hills State Park provided some good summer hiking, too. All in all, we thought this home and our hosts were awesome. Thanks for everything!

older family group

  • 5 of 5

6 brothers and sisters with spouses. All of us over 68. 3 floors so have to use stairways. Nice access to the fire ring patio from the main floor back door. Landscaping is beautiful. House very clean and well stocked with anything we needed. Owner easy to communicate with. It would be a great place for families with children, the tree house, the basement game room and the big lot up behind the house. We enjoyed sitting on the deck on the front of the house as well as around the fire ring. Good places to eat out close, Grocery in Laurelville, The road out front was busier than I expected. We would go back and we will tell our friends about this house.

Spacious, beautiful, wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This was by far the best large cabin we have rented. Excellent furnishings and a well stocked kitchen. The industrial coffee maker was a surprise bonus! Even when the heat index crested 100 degrees, the cabin stayed cool and there was enough indoor space for the kids to stay entertained without driving the parents nuts. When it cooled down the outdoor space was fantastic with a cozy fire pit, enchanting tree house and large field to play shadow tag. Worth every penny!

Awesome cabin

  • 5 of 5

We loved this property. Tons of room and so nicely equipped. We were there when temps were in the mid 90's. Air worked great and kept everyone comfortable. Tremendous value for big groups, we will be back.
