a secluded hilltop retreat on ≈5 woodsy, landscaped acres; wood stove for cold-weather fires; large deck with gas grill; x-treme tennis court* with pavilion and fire pit; walking trails**; pair of bikes available; well-behaved pets negotiable

note: due to the current pandemic situation, parties and events are not allowed

* cracked surface adds a challenge (think Wimbledon meets Whack-a-Mole)

** cross-country skiing can also be arranged (and, if you take certain trails, downhill skiing)

The space
bedrooms are on separate levels, each with adjacent bath and outdoor space, so everyone can enjoy a measure of privacy

large trestle table accommodates 8 people for meals, board and card games, family summits, etc.

your group has access to all common spaces in the cabin, but if your booking request is for just you and a significant other, I lock the second and third bedroom to keep those spaces sanitized—and, not coincidentally, off-limits to surprise, unpaid guests.

Guest access
guests have full use of the house with the exception of two walk-in closets used for storage.; note: as mentioned above, occasionally past bookings made allegedly for two guests have magically transformed into overnight visits by many more people, so the two downstairs bedrooms are locked unless there is prior confirmation of a need for additional sleeping accommodations.

Other things to note
there are many nearby options for comfort food: Clay Haus, Sophie's, and Strong & Co. in Somerset or Copper Penny, Port Smokehouse, and Papa Boo's on Buckeye Lake; for homemade ice cream: Weldon's Ice Cream in Millersport or Tom's Ice Cream Bowl in Zanesville; for local spirits: Vinberige, Sand Hollow Winery and Buckeye Lake Winery (2, 7 and 12 miles away) and Buckeye Lake Brewery

Location

Glenford, Ohio, United States

we're in the Appalachian foothills, surrounded by ravines, natural springs and mature forest

small Native American earthwork on site, with significant monuments 2, 4.5 and 11 miles away (Glenford Fort, Flint Ridge, Newark Earthworks)

if our trees and critters aren't enough for you: Dawes Arboretum (10 mi.), Blackhand Gorge Nature Preserve (17 mi.), Mission Oaks Garden (23 mi.), and The Wilds (42 mi.)

plenty else to explore: three Glenford Lions Club tractor pulls every summer! Ohio's only public Civil War equestrian statue! site of Ohio's first Catholic church! the birthplace of the Liberator of Bulgaria! charming country roads with names like Big Inch, Dog Leg, Lonesome and Cinder Tipple! a Louis Sullivan-designed bank building! Ohio pottery tourism sites! Backwoods Festival (Sept.), Somerset Oktoberfest, and the New Crooksville Moonshine Festival (May) with the naming of Little Miss Moonshine—a beauty pageant, not underage drinking contest!

As a bit of an introvert, I'm a late-comer to the sharing economy—and with twenty years and counting as the owner of a former tree farm, my hermit tendencies have only been reinforced. But given my work as a historian and curator active in the artist community in Latvia and a senior lecturer in film at Ohio State, even I have to acknowledge that there's nothing better than meeting interesting new people and discovering ways that we all can learn from each other and, if possible, help each other out. (Rural life here in the Appalachian foothills among terrific neighbors teaches much the same thing.) For all that book and experiential learning, however, I'm not clever enough to own my second residence in a place where I'd like to vacation: it's 600 yards away from my primary residence, and now it's on Airbnb. My partner and I lived in the cabin listed here while restoring the original farmhouse on the property, and having moved downhill at the end of 2017, we are happy to offer the place to you.
