5/5 Excellent

Arriving late we missed the beauty of the landscape on arrival. Well stocked and had a wonderful visit with our son. Thanks for your hospitality 😊

Awesome Weekend Getaway
My stay was amazing! Home was cozy, warm, clean, and had tons of amenities. Had a wonderful weekend.

5/5 Excellent

Peaceful and beautiful
A short 10 minute drive to Athens restaurants and amenities while remaining peaceful and serene away from the crowds and noise; only the sounds of nature were heard. Truly beautiful views of foliage and water. While the owners live above the property we didn’t notice and felt completely isolated and private. Never saw or heard them after check-in though they remained available should we need assistance. The drive to hocking hills was an easy less than an hours drive away. The rental was spotless and very well appointed including anything you might need for cooking (I’m referring to equipment not food) or relaxing. Nice living room arrangement and very comfortably yet stylishly furnished. Bedrooms and bathrooms well appointed with comfortable mattresses. These pretty Views can be enjoyed from the expansive living room windows or from the well placed benches outdoors. Well- lit stairs and walkway to the entrance. We highly recommend staying here and look forward to a future booking.

5/5 Excellent

Always a Beautiful Stay
This property is so amazing that it brought us back to stay for a 2nd time! The house is clean and decorated nicely, and you can't beat the incredible views out of every window! Access to the Ohio University campus was so short (8 minute drive) and made it a perfect place to get away for the weekend. Can't recommend it enough!
