  • Above and beyond - 5 Star experience!


    Perfect cabin!! Not one thing that I would change about the cabin or the experience. It was clean and spacious. Andy was great. We had the lake to ourselves, the row boat was perfect. The trails were the best I have seen at a rented cabin. The deck was massive, and overlooked the lake. The dock in the mornings was perfect to drink coffee on and watch as the lake fog roll through.The jacuzzi was very clean. We will definitely be back!!

  • Private hidden gem


    We enjoyed every minute of our 4 night stay and didn’t want to leave! The cabin was a bit tight for 4 adults and a toddler, but having the large deck gave us the space to spread out. (Bring baby gates if you are bringing small children.) We really only slept and cooked inside. The private woods with walking trails and having the lake to ourselves was perfect and just what we needed to decompress from our busy lives. We did a lot of kayaking and the fishing was great. We watched the bats as they came out at dusk and stargazed each night from the dock. Most of the Hocking Hills activities where about 30-45 minutes away from the cabin. Andy was easy to work with and quick to respond to questions. He even allowed us to park our trailer holding our kayaks in his yard. The cabin had everything we needed and I highly recommend it if you are looking for a private getaway. The only thing missing was a hammock on the deck to take a nap in!

    A much needed family weekend!! The drive up to the cabin was amazing. Well maintained and beautiful property. Hot tub was definitely a great way to end the nights.

  • Private lake getaway!


    Our family enjoyed our weekend at this beautiful, private lake in Hamden, Ohio. There was boating, paddle boating, swimming, fishing, turtles, fish! Every thing your family would want is all right there! Easiest to bring your food with you and grill and use the kitchen while you stay! The deck has a gorgeous view of the lake and you are in the middle of a forest! The trails are pretty and well groomed to walk on. So much to do! So private, serene, just what we needed! We will be back! I
