Rustic vacation cabin rental
Our Farm & Cabin are located in beautiful Morgan County, Ohio 10 miles S.W. of McConnelsville, near Chesterhill & Burr Oak State Park.
The Cabin has one room downstairs with sleeping loft upstairs, and a large porch. It was built with all local wood inside paneling, and exterior siding. 8 person maximum capacity. No smoking inside please.
It is situated in a grove of trees overlooking our bass pond, and is surrounded by pasture.
We call it a rustic cabin because it is like a cross between a motel room and camping out, with an outhouse & no electricity..
$20 per person per night with a minimum of 2 persons ($40) per night. During fall deer season, there is a minimum of 3 persons ($60) per night.
For those bringing a dog, the dog must be under control at all times, and not threatening our cattle. Also please do not allow pets on the couches or beds. Since there is no electricity, we cannot use a vacuum cleaner to clean up pet hairs, and there may be other folks that have pet hair allergies.
