The space
Eagle Creek Country Cabin is one of the few rental cabins in southwestern Ohio along a deepwater creek where you can ride your kayak, canoe, or pontoon boat right to a dock and walk up to your cabin. The cabin is one mile upstream from what many say is the deepest, cleanest, and most scenic stretch of the Ohio River. The water depth just off the cabin's private dock is around 19 feet, and huge catfish and many bass inhabit the water's depths. Please keep in mind that to go between the cabin and the dock one must walk up and down a grassy incline.

A one-night rate (Sun - Th) is $110. The weekend requires a two night stay and is $250 (Friday & Saturday). There is an additional charge of $15 per night per guest over 2 up to a max of 4 guests. Children under 5 stay free. Check-in time is 3:00 p.m. and check-out time is 11:00 a.m. A week's stay is the maximum length of a rental.

Guest access
Eagle Creek Country Cabin is non-smoking. Guests have full access to the 1.5 acres and miles of scenic creek perfect for kayakers and canoeists. Lightly-traveled country lanes provide miles of hiking and biking opportunities. Local area has many National Historical Landmarks from the Civil-War era. You will also find award-winning wineries, antique shopping, many excellent restaurants, and four golf courses-- all within a 20 minute drive!

Other things to note
There is satellite TV programming. The 32-inch flat-screen TV comes with a DVD player with a large selection of popular movies to choose from. The cabin has one queen-size bed downstairs with memory-foam mattress enhancement and memory-foam pillows, two full-size mattresses in a sleeping loft, and a full-size plush futon. Though the cabin has no wifi, free and high-speed wifi is available just minutes away at the local libraries in Aberdeen, Ripley, and Maysville (KY). Free wifi is also available at the McDonald's in Ripley. In addition to a large selection of movies, the cabin is also stocked with books and games

Guests also have access to free use of a pedal boat, two kayaks, and a row boat. Swimming is easily accessible off the dock, which is equipped with a swim ladder.

A veteran educator and school administrator, I enjoy long walks and traveling domestically and internationally. My keen love of reading led me to my author husband Steven M. Newman, who is known to many as "The Worldwalker." I'm right at home in the countryside, and for me, an ideal day is one spent lazing under the cool shade of an old tree, a tall glass of ice tea in one hand and a Janet Evanovich novel in the other. When it comes to my cabin guests, I delight in making sure that they leave with a big grin. I go out of my way to add those little touches that make for a memorable stay.

During your stay
The cabin's owners, Steven and Darci, enjoy meeting their guests upon arrival, but after that, guests have full privacy for the remainder of their stay. Should any assistance be needed, Steven and Darci live one minute away but out of sight of the cabin, in the middle of a 25-acre retreat known as Worldwalker Hill.
