Situated on 8 acres, centered in the Marietta Unit of Wayne National Forest, this 4,000 sq ft lodge-style custom log home is the ultimate forest getaway! Guests have access to 63,000 acres of national forest land with 80 miles of mountain biking and hiking trails, public hunting and the newly constructed USFS Frontier Boat Launch. Wayne National Forest is also home to endless paved and gravel roads ideal for cycling as well as auto and motorcycle touring.

The space
Located in one of the darkest areas in the county, the large deck is perfect for star gazing and over looking the small stream that runs through the front yard. The vaulted ceilings and giant windows allow you to enjoy the wooded surroundings while indoors. The large, level lawn is great for outdoor games and the downstairs game room with pool table, dart board and jukebox is perfect for indoor fun! The lofted master bedroom overlooks the great room with a king size bed, private balcony, jacuzzi tub, shower and dual vanities. The bedroom on the main floor has easy access to the living room, kitchen, great room and deck with a queen size bed and direct access to a full bath. The downstairs bedroom has direct access to the game room with french doors accessing the outdoor patio. This bedroom also has a queen size bed with a full bathroom next door. We provide towels, soap, shampoo, conditioner and hair blow-dryer.

Welcome to the forest- the home does not have internet and cell phones do not work at the house but you can sometimes get service by driving to a nearby hilltop. This is a great opportunity to unplug! Direct TV is available on the living room television. The downstairs television is for DVD's only. There are several DVD's available on-site and local stores have rentals. The house has a landline phone for necessary calls. The driveway has a small bridge over the creek before reaching the house. The bridge is fairly narrow so please be careful when crossing. Large vehicles may want to avoid crossing the bridge as space for turning around on the other side is limited. There is plenty of parking along the driveway before crossing the bridge. If you are traveling with a boat (or any trailer) we suggest parking in the large gravel pull-off on the left before entering the driveway. We have several walnut trees on the property. These trees shed walnuts in the fall. To avoid damage to your vehicle be sure not to park under one! The house has well water that is suitable for showering and washing dishes. Because of the well water's taste, bottled water is provided for drinking and cooking. No smoking and no pets please. The road accessing the home is totally paved and local stores and restaurants are a quick 15 minute drive away in New Matamoras or Newport/Saint Marys. Additional shopping and restaurant options can be found 30 minutes away in Historic Downtown Marietta.

Pricing is based on 6 person occupancy. We have couches and air mattresses with extra sheets and pillows. Additional guests permitted at $25 per person. Check-in time is 4pm. If you want to come sooner this can sometimes be arranged. Check-out time is noon. For breakfast we provide coffee, tea, oatmeal and granola bars.
