This is our rustic cabin that was built during prohibition and was a moonshiners paradise. There is no electricity and is completely off grid. There is a solar shower, lamps and candles, an RV toilet, gas/charcoal grill, outdoor fireplace, fire ring, picnic table etc. There is a queen size futon inside cabin and a futon with two cots in the screen room.

This is an affordable getaway from the hectic pace of modern life. We offer lower nightly rates for single and double occupancy ($30 per night for single person, $35 per night for two persons. The cabin is 12 feet by 16 feet with a screened in porch that is 8 feet by 16 feet. The screen porch has a futon and two sleeping cots. If you have any questions please ask for details. Thank you! Brett and Jamie PLEASE NOTE : It is a 300 foot hike on a wooded path to the cabin. We have a 4 wheeler to transport supplies.
We live in a nice Ohio farm valley and the cabin overlooks a beautiful stream. We are surrounded by large farms with wood lots and rolling green pastures. This area has many hidden treasures to explore.
  • Great Stay!

  • I was looking for a bit of adventure and wanted to have a peaceful and quiet time with my boyfriend. This place provides just that! Brett is very hospitable and kind. The unique touches to both of his cabins makes it a hidden gemstone and a place I will visit again but next time with family.

    Kayla2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Everything you would expect, plus a little extra. Worth every dime

  • Loved this cozy hideaway. Came for a winter weekend with my dog to recharge, and it was perfect to unwind, unplug, and relax. Brett was a stellar host and made sure I had plenty of firewood and warmed up the cabin for my arrival. He even baked me some brownies! Lots of thoughtful touches around the cabin, like the plethora of candles to give you some cozy night time light. There’s plenty of great hiking just a short drive away, or you can wander around the grounds and check out the creek. I’d love to come back when the weathers warm and I can enjoy the fire pit and screen porch.

  • wonderful place

    Noah2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • AMAZING. For any nature-heads looking for a rustic oasis this it the spot for you. Visited in December, temp in the 20/30s and the wood fire stove kept us toasty all night with a few stokes. Wish we had gotten in earlier to take advantage of the outdoor fire pits overlooking the stream (cabin located on a scenic ridge). Thoughtful touches. Very romantic :) highly recommend.

    Devin2019-12-22T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful little off grid cabin! Really enjoyed myself, woodstove kept the place toasty even in below freezing temps. Brett was an amazing host!

    This new cabin is one of two on the property. Both cabins are private and off-grid (no power or running water). This cabin is accessed through a mowed field by a camp Jeep (provided) and has the amenities shown in the photos. It overlooks a creek and is a great place to view wild-life and get back to nature and unplug from the hectic pace of life. Play cards/games, read, hike and make memories. We offer a discounted rate of $55 a night for couples and $50 a night for a single.
    We provide water, propane, fire wood, towels, sheets, blankets pillows and other small items, but bring whatever you want for a camping experience off-grid. Fire starters are always a great idea. Escape from the rat-race, read, rest, relax!
    Farm country. Rolling green fields. Amish shops. Peace and quiet.
  • What a wonderful wonderful getaway! Clean, quiet, peaceful and just overall a great place to get back to the things that matter in life.

    Jared2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • What an amazing place. Quiet and serene, well stocked and private. So excited to stay again.

    CircleM2020-03-08T00:00:00Z
  • We are a family with two children, 10 and 6. We stayed in Brett's cabin in February and had an awesome experience! The day temp was 45 degrees and night 28, the wood stove kept us warm and comfy. I had to feed it wood every 2 to 3 hours to keep it going which was exciting to me since it was my first time using one. Kids loved the loft. We played badminton and frisbee in the open mowed field, grilled our dinner, made campfire, walked along the creek, stargazed, played card games, cooked breakfast, overall had a really great time unwinding.. Brett is truly a super host, the place is stocked with all essentials. He also warmed up the place, trained me to use the stove, baked us blueberry bread, introduced the kids to his dog Dixie and his lobsters.. I'd really recommend this stay.

    Suraj2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Cabin was amazing! No problem staying warm with the wood stove going.

    Adam2020-02-16T00:00:00Z
  • Second time we've stayed here; relaxing feeling of being away from the world without the long drive. Cabin was cozy. I brought a sewing project and it was great sewing at the table by the window, warmed by the woodstove.

    L. Fawn2020-01-25T00:00:00Z
  • Bretts place was just what we needed to unplug. Great little place—very private but also offered great hospitality.

    Micah2020-01-12T00:00:00Z
  • This place is wonderful! Even though it was cold, the experience of having to keep the fire going was pretty unique and nice. Definitely coming back sometime! Highly recommend this place. Brett was really helpful and kind with us.

    Tiemi2020-01-01T00:00:00Z
  • This is the most amazing hidden gem. Perfect little, cozy cabin in the woods. Brett was am amazing host. The cabin had everything we needed and then some. The woodburner was amazing, along with the candle chandelier. Everybody needs to go off the grid at least once in their life..it does wonders and this is definitely the place to do it. We are already booking another stay and haven't even unpacked yet. Thank you Brett for everything! Dan and Caroline

  • This is a basement with owners living upstairs but it’s wonderful. You get the whole basement to yourselves and it’s nice a cozy with a gas fireplace that turns in with a switch. Very pleasant hosts. Small refrigerators and no kitchen but again, it’s a great place with wonderful touches.

    Ted2020-02-17T00:00:00Z

  • This is our second time staying at Stephen's house. Stephen and Jo were super sweet. We even ran into them at The Bad Apple Pub and rang in the New Year together! The house was clean and equipped with lots of toiletries. Perfect place to stay if you need a place to sleep for an evening or two!

  • Bluebird Barn is WAY more than a barn! It's adorably appointed, and the owner is clearly having a blast at the fine art of hospitality. The fridge is well-stocked, it's clean as a whistle, and on a summer or warm autumn night, when the barn doors are wide open and the star-stitched sky above is your canvas, it would be beyond idyllic. Even on a chilly October night we were warm when nestled under covers. The owner makes check in and check out easy and seamless as can be. A wonderful welcome to this gorgeous swath of Ohio farm country.

    Barbara2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • I truly loved staying here. It's so peaceful, comfortable and charming. Pam and Jeff definitely go the extra mile to make guests feel welcome. Hope to stay here again when visiting Kenyon College.

    Randy2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • Fun and funky. Pam is a gracious host. I woke up to a beautiful misty meadow sunrise!

    Lynda2019-09-14T00:00:00Z
  • We were traveling and last minute needed a place. Pamela jumped into action and when we arrived we were greeted and the place was already with fresh fruit, yogurt and treats. It is clean and comfortable.

    Amanda2019-08-21T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful place to stay. Great if you like to get off the grid and not worry about TV. Internet works great. A very nice and quiet place. The breakfast is wonderful as there is lots of items in the freezer and fridge for breakfast. Pam and Jeff are wonderful hosts.

    Joseph2019-08-19T00:00:00Z
  • Very cool place. The hosts were super friendly and accommodating

    Simon2019-08-11T00:00:00Z
  • What a wonderful stay! The beds were clean and comfortable, and so enjoyed being able to sleep with the window open and listen to the sounds of the night. Very relaxing! We also enjoyed being able to walk the path at the back of the property where we even saw deer. We'll be back. Thank you!

    Mount Vernon, OH, United States

    Studio apartment located about an hour northeast of Columbus. Includes full kitchen, washer and dryer and internet. In town, so close to downtown Mt. Vernon and shopping. Close to bike trail and park, and about 10 minutes to Kenyon or the Nazarene University.
    The garage is separate from my house and you get in with a keypad. I put the stairs to the apartment on the inside for safety and security, so you will walk past my tools and workbench. The neighborhood is pretty quiet and since I insulated the apartment well and put in laminated glass windows, you should have a private and quiet stay. I attempted to sound isolate the garage doors, but you may hear the door go up when I leave( I couldn't find any fancy sound mounts like we had on the submarine) There are snacks and drinks available and multiple restaurants are near by. The kitchen should have about everything you need. There is a 43" smart TV so you can log on with whatever service you want( I provide Netflix and Pandora). there is a massage recliner , loveseat, and a yoga mat and blocks under the tv. The queen bed is a 10" memory foam mattress with a 2" memory foam topper. There is a white noise machine on the night stand if it gets too quiet. Thanks for looking and booking my place.
    The neighborhood is pretty quite. You will hear some street noise, and during the day hear the kids at recess from the elementary school across the street. The garage is very well insulated and has laminated glass windows, so overall it is quiet.
  • We had a great stay at the Garage Getaway. Don’t let the “garage” part fool you, this is a comfortable and well-appointed place with lots of extra touches.

    Mark2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • The Garage Getaway is very comfortable and clean! Chad also had plenty of snacks and cold drinks available. The location is convenient to shopping, restaurants and both Colleges/University. I hope to stay here again when visiting Mt.Vernon. Highly recommend!!

    Paula2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • All the comforts of home with some thoughtful touches, Chad's place was perfect for our 2 night visit to the Mt Vernon/Gambier area. This was our second time staying here, and we wouldn't hesitate to stay again in the future. Thanks Chad!

    Marna2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Stayed at Chad’s Garage Getaway for second time. Same super exceptional hospitality, communications and cleanliness, all amenities you could need and super communication.

    Lois2020-01-13T00:00:00Z

    We have an 1840's Federal style brick house in rural Knox County, Ohio. We do not have WiFi but you will find peace and quiet, fresh air and a variety of trees and birds. Views from the house include fields, our barn and occasional deer. We are just seven miles from Kenyon College, Mount Vernon and the bike trail. The largest Amish settlement in the USA is only 40 minutes away. If you like to kayak, canoe or fish, you can access the Kokosing, a scenic river, in less than 5 minutes.
    There are more than a hundred different trees and shrubs near the house. Most are labled.
  • I loved Jerry's farm house. It's super spacious, clean, comfortable, and very private. If you're looking for a great spot in the beautiful Ohio countryside close to Kenyon, look no further!

The board games and puzzles are a great touch. We hope to stay again. Great communication from friendly host, Jerry. We will definitely stay again when we are in the area.

    Amanda2019-11-20T00:00:00Z
  • What a perfect place to stay. We were out visiting our daughter at Kenyon and the location was minutes from the campus. Very cozy home and beautiful views out of every window. We can't wait to stay there again.

    Adam2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Hospitality and accommodations are top notch! Antiques and honey touches at every turn. Could not have had a better stay!

    Yvonne2019-09-22T00:00:00Z
  • This home is a true treasure! It includes many beautiful antiques, thoughtful touches, and wonderfully landscapes grounds and trails. Sweet surprises at every turn! Can’t wait to return! And, by the way, was thankful for the lack of WiFi... unplugging is good for us every once in a while!

    Yvonne2019-09-15T00:00:00Z

  • Guys. This place is JAW DROPPING. Theres so.much detail i cant even begin to explain. The bathroom and bath tub is PHENOMENAL. She left snacks and champagne and just so much detail. I loved the speakers in the rooms, the art room was soo cute...and just everything I cannot rave enough.

    Morgan2020-03-02T00:00:00Z
  • We came here for a weekend away. We had a great time! We would recommend this stay to anyone. The house is very comfortable and well decorated. Pretty much had anything you would need (plenty of towels, kitchenware, extra toiletries, and snacks). The outdoor area looked great and we wished it was warmer so we could have enjoyed it. The bedrooms and bathroom both exceeded expectations. Very comfortable. The Airbnb is also very close to Kenyon College and Mont Vernon Nazarene which are both nice campuses to walk around and visit or if you are here to visit one of those colleges this Airbnb would be a great place to stay at. Glad we came here for the weekend.

    Jude2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • The Little Pink Barn is the perfect weekend getaway! It had everything you need plus more and Ginny is available to help with any needs! The house is so cute and stylish and I definitely want to make another trip there at some point!

    Private, tranquil, and beautiful setting for this cabin getaway. Secluded, yet conveniently located 3.5 miles from Kenyon College, 4 Miles to Apple Valley Lake, and 3 miles from Mt. Vernon's shopping, food, and entertainment. Top-notch building materials throughout with exposed wood beams, polished concrete counter-tops. Covered porch and sitting area with fireplace overlooking a small pond. One bedroom and a large loft with 2 twin beds. Please Note: The indoor fireplace is no longer available.
    This property is located on a non-thru gravel road. Just off a state highway, but feels like it's in the middle of nowhere, in a good way.
  • Great place to stay.

    Sacha2020-03-18T00:00:00Z

    Lindsay2020-02-16T00:00:00Z

    Catherine2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • Lovely space near Mt Vernon, OH. We were in town for the Wood Splitter Winter Solstice Endurance Race and it was a perfect place to stay. Less than 10 minutes from lots of restaurants and shops, and about 25min from the race location. The fireplace was just what we needed after being out in the cold for a full day. Cosy with a lovely view. Firewood is on premises for purchase which was really appreciated!

  • My partner and I arrived at Jerry's house in the evening after a long drive from Minneapolis and in need of peace and quiet. We loved the place. Interesting, comfortable, quiet. It was perfect.

    Our home is close to Kenyon College, Mount Vernon Nazarene College, Kokosing Gap Walking and Bicycling Trail. We are only an hour and fifteen minutes from the Ohio State campus. You’ll love my place because of the wooded setting, quiet and peaceful environment, warm open floor plan. Our home is good for couples, solo adventurers, business travelers, and families (with kids).
    The very spacious bedroom with a queen bed, also has a lazy-boy chair and a rocking chair as well as a desk. Our home is nestled on three acres of woods with a walking path. You will have a private bathroom with a shower.
    We are in the country, but the nearest Kroger is 10 minutes away, gas station and mart is 5 minute. Restaurants are located in Gambier and Mount Vernon . There is little light pollution, so stars are brilliant, and deer are plentiful.
  • Bege and Denny were very hospitable hosts. My stay with them was fantastic and I enjoyed their company while there. The house was very clean and nicely set up as well.

    Damon2020-01-13T00:00:00Z
  • My stay here was very pleasant. The house was incredibly clean, the room was comfortable and homey. Bege is a wonderful host and I would highly recommend staying here!!

    Amanda2019-11-16T00:00:00Z
  • We have been staying at Airbnb's for several years but always chose "entire place". We booked Bege's and Denny's place on pretty short notice and I was a little apprehensive of staying in someone's home with them. Bege quickly put me at ease and made us feel comfortable and welcome. Communication and check-in were easy with quick response times and the room actually looks nicer than the picture and is very spacious. Everything was very clean and the bathroom offered some amenities. Coffee in the room and we were treated to home-baked raisin bread in the morning. Lego, the dog, is very friendly. Diva, the cat keeps her distance. I have a pretty severe cat allergy but oddly (and thankfully) had no reaction to the cat at all. We enjoyed our space and its surroundings but what really makes this place special is the hosts - Bege and Denny are open and welcoming people who are interested in the guests they host. We thank them for a nice stay and a wonderful morning and hope we didn't talk your ears completely off :)

    Heike2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • What a fabulous place to stay! The house is tucked away in a lovely little forest of trees in an area of gently rolling hills. The room was big, clean and quiet. I had my own bathroom which was spotless. Bege and Denny were friendly and helpful. I’d definitely stay here again.

    Joseph2019-07-26T00:00:00Z
  • Bege is an outstanding host with a lovely home. It was so beautiful tucked up in the woods that I didn’t want to leave. The room is large and comfortable. The bathroom was perfect, also.

    Janet2019-06-14T00:00:00Z
  • Clean, comfortable, cozy place with hot coffee and homemade bread each morning! My 2nd stay! Close proximity to Kenyon College! Highly recommend!

    Diane2019-05-19T00:00:00Z
  • WARNING: you will be smitten with a great reluctance to leave this dreamy house and these great folks. You will want to be adopted (and I’m 70 yrs old). But you’ll be in line behind all the birds and woodland creatures and flowers Bege is Steward to. Their home deserves superlatives I haven’t learned or perhaps have not been created yet. The accommodations are palatial. Let’s put it this way the only amenities not available are indoor pool and masseuse.

    Billy The Kid2019-05-04T00:00:00Z

    The Parisian style Galerie Suite is located above an art gallery owned by two local artists. The gallery leads to a rear staircase, where original stain glass windows set the stage for the second and third floor guest bedrooms.
    Guests are welcomed by the artists and are given a bottle of wine, a loaf of homemade bread,and artisan cheese. Weekend guests are also welcome to browse the Gallery if they wish. Our location also provides direct access to the many shops, antique stores, and restaurants of historic downtown Mt. Vernon.
    Atmosphere of a nice small town with colleges near by and lots of beautiful countryside. There is a bike path near by with woods. The downtown shops and restaurants very pleasant.
  • Such a unique, charming stay! Vicki makes it very easy and convenient for you, and is very warm and welcoming. Would definitely come back!

    Maggie2020-03-07T00:00:00Z
  • Everything about this apartment is lovely—the furnishings are welcoming and cozy yet artistic and chic. The beds are made up with beautiful and comfortable linens providing a peaceful night’s sleep. I love the special treats the hosts leave out like delicious bread, scones, wine, coffee and teas in a well-stocked kitchenette. The location of this apartment is wonderful—steps from some top-notch restaurants and charming shops. The communication is fast and precise given with the most gracious hospitality. I have stayed with these hosts twice and will certainly be back! Thank you so much for the perfect stay!

    Angie2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • This place is as advertised. A great place to stay if you are in the area. Right in the center of downtown and walking distance to shops and restaurants. Easy to get to Kenyon College. Vicki is an artist and when you are in this apartment you feel transported. All of the right touches to not only make you forget you are in Ohio but to transport you to that little French apartment you may have dreamed of. We have stayed here twice! This place is perfectly clean. The beds are very comfortable. My wife uses a noisemaker (ocean waves) to to sleep and this helps drown out street noise from downtown if you are a light sleeper. I didn't need anything. Thank you Vicki. We have already booked at least twice more over the next several months.

    Jason2019-12-08T00:00:00Z
  • My husband and I enjoyed our stay at Vicki and Robert’s cute, apartment. It was a great experience.

    Mike2019-10-27T00:00:00Z
  • The Galerie Suite reminded me of a petite quaint apartment in Paris- sweet little kitchen and dining/sitting room. Comfortable bedrooms with good light and a very nice courtyard. Within easy walking distance of the up and coming Mt. Vernon downtown main street shops and restaurants. A gem!

    Rieyn2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Vicki’s place was amazing! Charming, convenient to Kenyan, unique and accessible. The goodies were wonderful and very much appreciated. We ran into a glitch with our travel plans and she was more than helpful, gave us useful phone numbers and essentially solved the problem for us. Highly recommend!

    Geoff2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • You can expect a cute, hospitable, clean space with welcoming touches such as coffee table books, local guides, games, and of course, a hot tub! We had a great time and Alyese is great and a quick communicator!

    Sarah2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Amazing place and had a lot of fun! The place was true to the photos, very clean and great amenities with ample plates, cups, etc. Hot tub was a nice touch and very fun in the semi-private backyard just off of the back patio deck. Great views from the living room of the lake across the street, ample parking with the garage and long driveway as well. Bedrooms were great, beds comfy, and bathrooms clean and modern. Loved the cool mirror lamp in the downstairs bathroom as well as extra fridge downstairs. Would stay there again if in the area!

    Kevin2020-01-19T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful house in the heart of the nature! We had a great time with our friends there. The decor was beautiful and stylish, the amenities were great. The house was clean and comfortable. Alyese is a great host, she informed us at every step. We will definitely come back!

    We recently renovated our one-story home and are excited to welcome visitors to our cozy space. The house is mere blocks from Kenyon’s campus and sits on the same street as the Kenyon Athletic Center. We’ve arranged the house to make it easy for visiting with friends and family. The open kitchen and living room offer a warm shared space, and the two back bedrooms provide plenty of privacy. The large backyard deck is perfect for relaxing outdoors.
    This house is our quiet getaway spot, and we hope visitors will feel the same way. We envision the space as a vacation home, a remote place to work, or a comfortable place to stay while visiting family or attending programs at Kenyon College. Amenities include new appliances (including washer/dryer), plus a renovated bathroom, a single-car garage, high-speed internet, and cable TV.
    Our house offers the best of both worlds: a peaceful residential block within walking distance to Kenyon’s campus, Middle Path, the football stadium, and the Kenyon Athletic Center.
  • Maria and Matt have a wonderful place and they are fabulous hosts. We have stayed several times and are always so pleased. Very comfortable space in perfect Kenyon location. We will be back!

    Alex And Anne2020-03-20T00:00:00Z
  • exactly as advertised. one block from the main strip in gambier. walking distance to everything Kenyon.

    Nancy2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • This is a wonderful property with all the comforts of home. Everything was immaculate and very welcoming. I would highly recommend this property to everyone.

    Kristina2020-02-17T00:00:00Z
  • This home was a sweet, cozy, clean place that was so convenient to the college where we could enjoy every minute with our college student. And being a short walk to Wiggins Street Coffee Co. was just an added bonus :). It snowed while we were there so we were able to make our first snowman with our daughter. A memory we will never forget!

    Talisa2020-02-09T00:00:00Z
  • This home is lovely, exactly as described (perhaps even better than described), and extremely well-stocked. The location is ideal for a visit to Kenyon or the quaint town of Gambier. The hosts consistently provided helpful, timely communication. Truly, one of the best Airbnb experiences I have had.

    June2019-11-24T00:00:00Z

  • Maria and Matt are gracious hosts. They are quick to respond and flexible with requests. Their home is decorated beautifully and sparkling clean. The back deck gave us a place to connect with family in beautiful surroundings. The breakfast bar in the kitchen was a great place for a eucher battle. I highly recommend Maria and Matt's place and thank them for sharing their home with us.

    This is a late 1800s farm house on my working family farm. It has been fully remodeled and infrastructure updated but retains the simple architecture of the period farm house. Located one mile East of Gambier (Kenyon College), it's site overlooks the Kokosing River and is a short walk to the Kokosing Gap Bike Trail. Includes a fully furnished kitchen, three bedrooms and two baths. The wrap around porch overlooks the river and surrounding pasture. Enjoy the secluded, quiet, pastoral setting.
    Farm livestock include Katahdin sheep and Nifty the guard Llama. During summer months, bring your canoe or kayaks and enjoy exploring the Kokosing River from this home base, or wade the river and hook yourself a few small mouth bass. If you bring your bikes, there are miles of paved, scenic trails (former railroad tracks) to explore to the east or west of Gambier.
    The Gambier area is a small college town in a predominantly agricultural environment.
  • Great place, a beautiful farm house, exactly as described. Norman and Patricia are super friendly and attentive hosts. The house is fully equipped and everything is in pristine condition. We had a lovely stay! We will be back. Thank you!

    Pedro Alvaro2020-02-18T00:00:00Z
  • Bent Canoe Farm never disappoints, and our stay this January was no exception. Our daughter was recovering from surgery and we needed a place convenient to the Kenyon Campus to ease her back into the semester and Norman and Patricia's place was perfect. As always, the house was lovely, warm and welcoming and the hosts were incredibly generous and attentive throughout our lengthy stay. This is truly the best place to stay in Gambier and we appreciate every opportunity we have to do so!

    Sarah2020-01-22T00:00:00Z
  • Bent Canoe remains a favorite place to stay when visiting our daughter at Kenyon College. This fall was no exception, and we thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful foliage, tranquility of the river and hospitality of Norman and Pat. The farmhouse continues to provide a space to relax, reflect and enjoy everything Gambier has to offer.

    Sarah2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • This home and location is so beautiful, I hesitate to write a review for fear it will become unavailable the next time I want to stay. It is a fabulously updated farm house situated on a piece of land fit for a movie scene. Atop a hill, surrounded by trees, next to a river, with a pasture of sheep guarded by a "Mama Llama". The house is complete with every possible need anticipated from the totally equipped kitchen, comfortable bedding, luxury baths, large dining table for conversation, gas fireplace in Living Room, 2 porches to enjoy morning coffee, a firepit supplied with wood and a lovely path to walk near the Kokosing River. The home has a full bathroom and King bedroom down as well as 2 bedrooms up. One with Queen bed and 1 with Twin beds with full bath in between. There is a smart TV for evening viewing and the quaint college town of Gambier is only 1 mile away. Norman was quick with communication and he and wife Pat were truly warm and hospitable.

    Michelle2019-10-14T00:00:00Z
  • Just a beautiful setting, very clean and wonderful hosts!

    Christine2019-08-25T00:00:00Z

    Beverly2019-07-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great location! Beautiful family home with all the amenities. Very spacious and beautiful decorated.

    Aprell2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • This farmhouse has been so beautifully remodeled that it feels like a warm and comfortable home as well as a new house. The big wraparound porch has a screened in portion for evenings sitting on the glider, watching the sheep graze in the pasture. It is almost too picturesque. The property is very well kept with lots of flower out back and the river as your next store neighbor. All the appliances are new and up to date. The owners have also filled the kitchen with every small appliance you might want to use (crockpot, blender, ect.) The gas grill even had an extra full tank of propane next to it so you don't run out mid cook. If I needed anything I found it clean and ready to use in a drawer or cabinet. The bedrooms had clean crisp white bedding. The bathrooms were spotless and had stacks of white towels that looked as though they had never been used. The bathrooms reminded me of a high end hotel with small toilettes and lots of extras. The upstairs bathroom has a huge walk in tile shower and both bathrooms have exhaust fans to clear the steam. The tile floors in the bathrooms and hardwood floors in the rest of the home make the house easy to keep clean. This home completely exceeded my expectations. Wish we could have stayed longer. Thanks Norman!

  • Wow! A group of 10 of us (adults and teens) came for a fencing tournament at Denison University and we could not have had a more perfect experience. The kids were all exclaiming their delight at the size of the house, the interesting little finds in every corner, the fun snacks provided, and had the ability to get outside and burn off some energy even in the cold of winter. Awesome all around!

    Laurie2020-01-20T00:00:00Z

    Jerry2020-01-03T00:00:00Z
  • For the second year in a row, we used this beautiful farmhouse for a group of teenagers who were attending an event at MVNU nearby. They loved the spacious accommodations and fun places to hang out together. We enjoyed cooking together in the home and the full kitchen. I can’t say enough about how fantastic this house is. We can’t wait until we get to stay again!

    Lauren2019-11-02T00:00:00Z
  • Loved staying here. I was attending Kenyon events so left the car at the farm and rode my bike on the Kokosing Gap trail (minutes from the house) back and forth to campus. Matt lent me his headlamp but i didn't think I'd need it with the big harvest moon. I needed it. so lovely. very good baked oats for breakfast and warm homemade bread as an evening snack.

    Andrea2019-09-15T00:00:00Z

The breakfast provided was so scrumptious and a perfect way to start our day. We also enjoyed our conversations with their children who are truly some of the most well-behaved and insightful children that I've ever met. Their great character is a true reflection of both Matt and Renne's great parenting skills! We can't wait to return again!

    Jon2019-08-27T00:00:00Z

I really appreciate that Matt gave my father a ride to Kenyon college. The location is about 5 minutes' drive from Kenyon College. So if you are an international student or you want to stay during vacation, I strongly recommend this one!

  • This Is a restful and well appointed space set on beautiful property that is well maintained and allows for restorative walks. The whispering pines cover you in soothing sounds as geese serenade from the pond. There is something magical about this place.

    Laura2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful place for a long weekend retreat! The meditation path around the pond is beautiful.

    Jamie2020-03-09T00:00:00Z
  • Beautiful tiny home. Really comfortable, with all the things you'd need. With thoughtful touches, colorful mugs, smell of the wood, comfortable beds, full-size stove, oven, refrigerator, shower. A scenic path around the swamp is great for meditative walks in the morning, a little labyrinth and a bench overlooking the swamp are perfect for some alone time. It was exactly what I needed, and I'm grateful. All issues have been taken care of immediately, and the response time was fast. Hosts stayed in touch and were courteous, willing to go extra mile.

  • If you are thinking it would be fun to experience tiny house living and you love being outdoors too this is the perfect place for you! Waking to a beautiful pond and wetland right outside your window was great along with having a wonderful morning campfire with our coffee... how much better can it get! We were impressed with the tiny homes quality solid construction and lovely decor. We truly wanted for nothing. Along with the comfortable inside there is a great deck that was fun to relax on after our hike around the wetland where we saw a pair of wood ducks, some muskrats eating and a deer on the opposite side of the pond area. Kerry and Kathy both responded quickly to questions and were happy to help when we needed something. Something to note is that within 2 miles or so is a trailhead for a rails to trail bike path. Next time we stay we look forward to bringing along our bikes! A very special place that truly gives you time to relax and enjoy nature! Angie and Ken

  • This tiny house was a nice getaway for my husband and I. There’s plenty of space for two people. You should pack light though, so your luggage doesn’t clutter up the space. We slept well in the larger bed. It does take some time to get used to the ceiling being so close. The couch is extremely comfortable. We did not use it as an extra bed, but enjoyed sitting there to eat and watch Netflix on the TV. There was wood provided for the fire pit. We brought our own folding chairs and sat by the fire taking in the peacefulness and lovely view. This place is a great place to stay to relax, but it’s also a short 35-40 minute drive (depending on traffic) to Easton in Columbus for comedy, shopping, and dining. You can’t beat the price for this rental!

    Lori2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • Great spot. Really beautiful location and super peaceful, and very well equipped house. We will come back for sure!

    Ted2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • What a fun, quirky space! We had never stayed in a tiny home, and it was really fun! Communication was top-notch; Kathy & her daughter Kerry were very quick to respond, sometimes within a minute, and we were grateful they were there when we had questions. The home itself is cozy, welcoming, clean as a whistle, has some darling decorative touches, super comfortable beds, and just the right amenities for a few days of staying! They even left us firewood to use! The location is a perfect 30-40 minutes outside of Columbus, so we got to spend our days in the city, and our nights in the country, listening to peepers sing us to sleep each night! We will definitely be back to spend more time in this little country getaway! A+++!!!

    Karen2019-11-30T00:00:00Z
  • Charming, homey and clean with great amenities. We felt very comfortable and welcome in Wendy's lovely home.

    Chris2019-11-10T00:00:00Z
  • Wendy’s home is a lovely, thoughtful three bedroom house on a charming block in Mount Vernon, Ohio, minutes away from Kenyon College’s campus. The sunroom is an especially alluring place to relax with its many windows and warmth. The pool and patio area looked welcoming, though we did not utilize due to the weather. Wendy was very easy to communicate with and left detailed instructions regarding arrival and departure from the house.

    Joan2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Spacious. Clean. Perfect stay with friends while visiting Kenyon College. Would book again!

    Thank you for viewing our comfortable home in Gambier Ohio! Our house is on a quiet street near the Kenyon Athletic Center, Pierce Hall and the Kokosing Gap Trail. We hope to provide you a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Please do not hesitate to message with questions. We have everything you should need at this rental: linens, towels, a well-stocked kitchen, an iron, and more! We are flexible about checking in and out.
    This home is perfect for anyone who desires to stay in the heart of beautiful Kenyon College campus in Gambier. It is also within walking distance to the Kokosing Gap Trail and Kokosing River.
    This question asks me to write what I love about my neighborhood, and the answer is: EVERYTHING! Gambier is the quintessential small college town. We are steps away from one of the most beautiful colleges in the world. While not officially "on campus," we are as close as it gets. We live adjacent to student housing Morgan Apartments. Gambier is extremely pedestrian-friendly. There are usually college events happening such as lectures, live music, or art exhibitions. During the summer, the residents of Gambier make up for the absence of the students at the Kenyon Inn and Village Inn. The Village Market is an interesting mix of typical pantry staples, unique beer and wine selections, and local food offerings. This area is perfect for those looking for a weekend outdoors. We are within walking distance of the Kokosing Gap Trial, the Kokosing River, and the Brown Family Environmental Center hiking trails. Knox County has quality parks, public golf courses, and nature preserves.
  • Great location if you are visiting campus. Very spacious, cozy and well appointed. Has the basics and extra touches such as to- go coffee cups! Plenty of space and nice deck. Highly recommended!

    Tara2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • The house is perfectly clean, stylish, and warm. A wonderful location right on campus and just an overall great place to stay when visiting Kenyon!

    Jesse2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • If I could give more than 5 stars for the location, I would! The house is comfortable and well-equipped and a very short walk to Kenyon's athletic facilities and fields and its dining hall.

    Jennifer2019-10-21T00:00:00Z
  • This house was absolutely perfect for a group of alums coming back to celebrate an on-campus wedding! The space is exactly as it appears in the pictures, and everything was spotless when we arrived. The check in/out instructions are very helpful and clear, and there are many thoughtful touches that make the space extra comfortable. We would most definitely stay here again!

    Elizabeth2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • All around great place. I was on my own, but this would also be a great place for a family to stay or for families to share while visiting Kenyon. Lots of beds and a fully outfitted kitchen. I didn’t need a car because the house is essentially on campus close to everything. Lovely deck. Plenty of towels and my bed was comfy. Pristinely clean.

    Andrea2019-10-07T00:00:00Z
  • Wonderful space - everything you need for an overnight trip or two. Location to Kenyon campus cannot be beat!

    Lakshmi2019-09-07T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this clean, comfortable and cozy home. We greatly appreciated all of the amenities, closeness to the Kenyon Athletic Center, Kenyon’s campus, Village Market and the back deck. It truly felt like a home away from home.

    Dave & Amy2019-07-29T00:00:00Z

    A very nice space that is entered from a shared hallway. First floor, handicapped accessible, shower stall with seat.
  • Barbara was very accommodating and even let me borrow a few bowls for my dogs. I definitely recommend staying here!

    Shane2020-02-27T00:00:00Z
  • I flew in from the West Coast and arrived to Gambier around 2:00 am. I didn't expect for Barbara to stay up and wait for me. The drive from CMH to Gambier at night (alone!) was pretty daunting but Barbara told me to call her if I needed to. She went on to say that, "Sometimes hearing a friendly voice on the other line can calm your fears." She knew exactly what I was feeling and was a very thoughtful gesture to extend to me. She and Bill made my stay in Gambier wonderful. I got to see some snow fall, a rare sight in Southern California. I loved their place - very spacious and welcoming. We will definitely be back in May. Thank you, Bill and Barbara, for a wonderful stay in the countryside. Best, ~ Rowenna

    Rowenna2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Excellent place - the view out the back is very nice. Everything was spotless and Barbara was a really good host. Hope to visit again someday - would highly recommend!

    Brian2019-12-26T00:00:00Z
  • As always I look forward to staying at No Ordinary Manor! It is a gem of a place with the kindest hosts in Barbara and Bill! So cozy, comfortable and immaculate - with all the amenities you need for a perfect stay!! Can’t wait to return!!

    Linda2019-12-06T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara's apartment is very comfortable, cozy and well equipped for a couple. She has it decorated with many country touches and it feels wonderfully homey. You cannot go wrong if you are looking for somewhere quiet in the rural Ohio countryside close to Amish country.

    Jon2019-11-29T00:00:00Z
  • I do not usually trust reviews that give ***** but you can trust this one. My expectation was this would be a small place to crash for a few days while we were in Gambier. Instead we found it to be a roomy, immaculate place with everything you could need. We got in late and Barbara met us with a smile and showed us around. She was available if we needed anything, but we did not as she already thought of everything. We will definitely be back!!

    Marcy2019-11-13T00:00:00Z
  • More than we expected, spacious, well-kept place with everything we need. Close to Kenyon College and Mt. Vernon.

    Joy2019-11-03T00:00:00Z
  • I don’t think you could have a better stay anywhere else! Barbara is an amazing host that takes pride in offering a clean, comfortable and relaxing home away from home. I would recommend her to everyone!

  • I HIGHLY recommend staying at this home. As soon as you walk in the door the home is breath taking. The photos do not do the home justice at all. The house was very clean, actually spotless. 6 couples stayed for the weekend as a part of our annual marriage retreat. The home was so spacious. The Lake View is worth a million bucks. The house has all the amenities that you would ever need. The host is kind and rapid with communication, she also left a welcome gift which was a first and I’ve stayed in many Airbnb’s We truly appreciated the hospitality. With so much going on in the world today, this home allowed for our party to step away in a safe and comfortable place to relax. For a moment we forgot all about any of live’s challenges. The kitchen is any Chef’s Dream!!!!! Beautiful, Outstanding, Remarkable Home. I would definitely stay here over and over again. I would suggest a visit any time of year but if you are lucky enough to book during the summer, the house is packed with plenty of amenities to enjoy the beautiful lake!

    Darla2020-03-22T00:00:00Z
  • We thoroughly enjoyed our stay for a weekend family gathering. Check in and check out instructions were very clear and easy to follow. Communication with the host was very quick and helpful. She checked in to make sure everything was fine. The house was spotless. It is nicely furnished and very comfortable. All beds were comfortable for our group. The common areas were spacious, allowing us to spend time interacting as a group. Weather limited our ability to enjoy the outdoor activities, but would be ideal in summer months. We were able to enjoy local establishments. Kelley’s pizza, Bad Apple Pub, Howard Hilton and Stein Brewing in Mt Vernon. Really enjoyed the recently renovated kitchen. We hope to be able to visit again!

    Todd2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • If you need a home that can sleep a ton of people, each with private rooms, a large family area (there are two!), and a very well stocked big kitchen, as well as, a deck and a massive dock...this is the place! Peggy was outstanding and answered all my questions immediately! The sunrise over the lake was beautiful! I'd stay here again in a heart beat!

    THIS AMAZING 'STAYCATION' HOME IS MOVE IN READY. FREE WIFI (THE HIGHEST UPLOAD/DOWNLOAD SPEEDS AVAILABLE) FOR PARENTS AND KIDS WHO NEED TO WORK FROM HOME. THIS PROPERTY IS AVAILABLE FOR WEEKLY AND MONTHLY RENTALS AT DEEPLY DISCOUNTED RATES FOR THOSE WHO HAVE BEEN AFFECTED BY COVID-19- (MESSAGE ME FOR A QUOTE)-1ST RESPONDERS ARE FREE! THIS 6K SQ FT HOME HAS PRIVATE OFFICE, 7 BEDROOMS 3.5 BATHS, FULL AMENITIES LIST THAT HAS IT ALL-FULLY EQUIPPED & SUPPLIED, CLEANED ACCORDING TO CDC RECOMMENDATIONS
    We wanted you to know that we decided to become full time hosts 15 years ago for many reasons. Since that time, we have hosted over 900 separate stays with our 3 properties and entertained over 10,000 guests. At the time we started being hosts, we never could have anticipated what role we play in our community and where we would go on our journey as hosts. What we have learned is in these uncertain times of rapid changes, stress and uncertainty, it is important for us to continue to provide our guests the space to relax and connect with one another (no matter how far we need to be for proper social distancing). We also need to meet the evolving needs of the "work from home" and "learn from home" family with kids that require the best high speed internet available from Spectrum. This WiFi is 10,000 sq ft of power to handle multiple devices with a private office to work from home. There are also the displaced persons that cannot travel due to state restrictions. Whatever the reason, this 1 home meets all the needs, no matter what they may be. This is the ideal "staycation" property. COVID-19 has had a profound impact on guests willingness to travel away from home. Yet, some families need the space, privacy and the amenities this home provides to meet their shorter term needs. In the spirit of good hospitality, we are very supportive and understanding that some guests are having to make tough decisions based on the safety and the people who matter most to them. We respect those guests who want to delay or ultimately need to cancel their travel plans. As a demonstration of our commitment to hosting, we have temporarily changed our cancellation policy from "strict" to "flexible". We are also offering deeply discounted rates to those who need a "staycation" home. Please reach out to me for a quote and do not use what you see on the screen as your cost. In accordance with the new CDC recommendations, we have augmented our cleaning and disinfecting procedures. We have gone above and beyond to offer our guests that peace of mind that every surface is cleaned and disinfected thoroughly, multiple times. We have plenty of hand soaps at each sink (6 sinks in the house) along with fresh hand towels and paper towels. We have always provided a vast collection of household cleansers and disinfectants for our guests to use while they stay. We are all living a new normal and though things appear different right now, we will make it through the other side with wisdom on our side. We want to welcome you to our home and we have taken every precaution to ensure it is cleaned appropriately, we offer no-contact check ins and this home is loaded with all the amenities that make having to stay for longer than expected better than expected. Here is a description of this beautiful home; This 3 story PRIVATE immaculate home was custom built and styled, making it a truly one of a kind among vacation rental properties. This home will WOW you and your guests with its SIZE, amenities list, cleanliness, visual appeal and the luxury you get as if you were staying in a 5 -star resort. It definitely sets the bar when it comes to renting an Airbnb, or any other vacation rental, as there are no others like it in all of Ohio. It is the perfect meeting space for families and friends alike. Whether you are having a business meeting, need a staycation location, celebrating a life event, sharing a family vacation or just coming together with friends or family, this home has the space to handle all your needs. It has a full list of amenities and furnishings that make it simply amazing! You cannot find all these desired items all in one location. Come see why we have been the number 1 vacation rental for 2019 and 2020. Don't torture yourself with that touristy trip with the huge crowds and traffic everywhere. THIS IS THE DESTINATION-come and have your vacations here. You get the privacy, space, amenities and that special luxury that is nowhere else- all while you are close to the local desired attractions for kids and adults. They are minutes away and no fighting large crowds or long drives. Instead, you get a great nights sleep on quality beds and linens while feeling at home with everything at your fingertips. Beyond being in the perfect location, the impressive size and beauty of the house makes everyone say “WOW!!” It is equipped with everything, down to the back stock of paper towels and plenty of soft fluffy bath towels and even the pool towels. We stock the house for you, provide everything you could ever need and what you would expect to find in a high- end luxury home. We do not compromise or cut corners on the details, those are what matter the most when you are away from home. When you factor in the highly personalized service you will receive as our guest- this house and the hosts are unmatched elsewhere. That is why I maintain a 5 star standing across multiple sites and have the best detailed reviews from actual guests whom have stayed at my properties. Take a moment to read them, they give you the best description and paint an accurate picture of what to expect when you arrive. The home itself is visually stunning, with 6,000 square feet of fun everywhere. Every room on every level is warm and inviting with updated decor, clean lines and stylish details. Did I mention it is SPACIOUS? With 7 bedrooms that contain a total of 21 beds (17 queen and 4 single) adorned with luxury linens, this home accommodates both larger and smaller gatherings with ease and class. Add in the 3.5 baths in strategic locations, supplied with an ample supply of linens, means the house is perfect for everyone and every occasion. During the warmer months, the obvious main attraction is the extra large in-ground pool that is 53' X 14' wide. It has a generous number of lounge chairs and seating all around the pool, so you can soak up the sun or take a swim. The pool is not the only reason to enjoy the outdoor part of the house. The other desired amenities include the large 8- person hot tub on the lower level- under an elevated deck (with 6 burner propane gas grill), seating for eating/ entertaining and finally the outdoor fire table with chairs for all to gather around at night time to watch the beautiful flicker of the large blue flame dancing on the mirrored glass. Inside the house there are two large family rooms in this house and an additional living room on the main level. The house just goes on and on and pictures don't do it justice. We have had up to 50 guests at one time and no one felt cramped or thought there needed to be additional space. There are multiple indoor gathering areas; the main level family room, the formal dining room with seating for 16, the eat in kitchen area with seating for 10. All these were designed for bringing people together to celebrate in big or small areas, for any occasion; entertaining or just relaxing with family and friends. The expansive elevated deck has an amazing panoramic view of the manicured golf course. There is plenty of parking in the 3 car garage and space for 12+ cars in the upper parking spaces. You don't need the Summer to have a reason to stay, bring the family or friends for a memorable gathering- any time of year. Don't worry with getting ready for the holidays, come here where everything is stocked and ready to go for you. I included the photos of the house decorated for the holidays. Looking for a company get together? This is the perfect spot to celebrate. While you are not enjoying the amenities at the house there are multiple local activities for everyone from 3 to 103 within just a short drive and this list does not even cover everything, here is just a sampling; For Golfers; We are situated closest to the 13th hole on Apple Valley public golf course. There are other great courses within 30 minutes of the house; Black Diamond Golf Course Fire Ridge Golf Course The Virtues Golf Club( Formerly Longaberger Golf Course) For Families; Ohio’s longest and fastest zip line at Tree Frog Canopy Tours, is just a 20 minute drive away. Want to hike, kayak, horseback ride or try an arial obstacle course? Mohican Adventures has everything for family and friends, big and small. I cannot say enough about the Knox County Parks, they have amazing park systems that have something for everyone- even the 4-legged family members have their own bark park. Honey Run Waterfall and Park offers multiple hiking paths and a breathtaking 25 foot waterfall only a 5 minute drive from the house. In the winter, the waterfall has a lighting ceremony during the second weekend in December. The parks advertise the monthly event calendar on their site and I can assist you with creating a fun agenda. Looking for a farm experience? There is a petting zoo within an 8 minute drive from the house. **Skip that trip to another state, stay close to home and enjoy more luxury and fun, without having to pack the whole house, buy additional items you don't need (since its provided for you) and feel cramped and overcrowded in a stuffy hotel room. Come stay with us, we will treat you like family!
    This beautiful home is close to Mount Vernon Ohio, Gambier and Kenyon College. It is located in Apple Valley, a resort and lake community about 40 minutes from Amish Country. This entire home has the seclusion of being in the country with the conveniences of being 7 miles to shopping in Mount Vernon and outdoor activities like hiking, canoeing, zip lines and fishing- all within a reasonable drive of 20-25 minutes away. Amish Country, located in Millersburg is a must see if you have not been there. I would recommend this trip to anyone who has not been to Holmes County-the worlds largest Amish population. The shopping is great and the people are hospitable and kind!
  • A group of of us arrived from Detroit this past weekend to a very surprisingly beautiful home. There were 21 ladies including myself and we had a blast. The house slept all of us very comfortably. This house is gorgeous with many additional surprises. The little details were so thought out. It was beyond our expectations. It came fully stocked with everything that you could possibly need and more and with plenty of room to spread out. We even enjoyed the hot tub. The home was spotless from top to bottom and was very welcoming. Our Ladies Ski Weekend Getaway was a definite hit thanks to Lisa who shared her beautiful home with us and is also a thoughtful, kind and very gracious host. I would recommend this home 5 times over to anyone looking for a nice, spacious, peaceful, very clean play to stay on their vacation.

  • We spent months planning a company retreat for 14 people and we chose this place in Howard Ohio to host our company retreat. Everything went off perfectly with the help of Lisa and the amenities of this great house. We were able to have space to mingle and space to get away from each other if needed. I can't think of anything I would change. Thanks for all of your help. Cheers!

    Chris2020-02-29T00:00:00Z
  • We had a great time in this beautiful home. We felt very comfortable and welcomed and enjoyed the great amenities.

    Leah2020-02-02T00:00:00Z
  • Lisa was an amazing host, and the house is better than even the pictures can show! There is so much space, and she provides LITERALLY everything you may need. My friends and I came for a weekend away from kids and responsibilities and had such a wonderful time relaxing, playing games and hanging out. Everyone was awed by the space and several people had to untuck sheets to see what mattresses Lisa used because they were super comfortable! We are looking forward to our next visit to Apple Valley and staying with Lisa again!

    Mandy2020-01-26T00:00:00Z
  • Don't look any more!!! This is a beautiful, clean house with everything you need for your stay. Lisa is very easy to work with and gets back to you right away! She makes it very smooth for planning. Will want to come back.

    June2020-01-05T00:00:00Z
  • We had a such a perfect friends and family New Years getaway at Lisa’s place! This house is amazing. Super clean! All the amenities you can think of and more. All the beds were so comfortable! And We were pleasantly surprised at how comfortable the queen bunk beds were also. Lisa was a great host, very quick to respond to any questions we had. Looking forward to staying here again, or even trying on of her other properties too.

    Maria2020-01-02T00:00:00Z
  • I want to write Lisa a tremendous review! She is an amazing hostess who puts her heart an soul into making your stay very special. We had 18 family members together for our annual after Christmas get together. In 20 years of holding this event, we have never had a more ideal or luxurious facility to host our event. We had all the room we needed to socialize, cook. Eat, sleep, and relax. I can’t say enough nor can I begin to express what a wonderful time I had with my three children, there spouses and our 10 grandchildren. We will be back!

    The Barn by Creekside is a Pre-Civil War Bank Barn. Original to it's location and erected in the 1850's. We have lovingly and uniquely restored it into a barn home with heat, air, and the barn vibe you didn't know you needed! Completed in March, 2019. Located on 30 beautiful acres, a creek runs alongside which can be enjoyed from the large deck. Thoughtfully arranged to gather your people for time away from your normal. Close proximity to Kenyon College, Apple Valley Lake, and Mount Vernon.
    We have outfitted the home for a very comfortable group stay. Favorite uses for the barn so far: Kenyon College visits, Girls' weekend to reconnect in the outdoors, Mens' golf trips, family reunions and birthday parties, company retreats. A fully functional kitchen with all amenities for your use. Coffee, tea, sugar and cream is provided. In 2020 and beyond, we will not be allowing weddings or parties onsite.
    This is a rural Ohio farm experience but still very near all that you require. It is glam inside, but quiet and still a little wild outside. Gambier and Mount Vernon are the closest towns. Kenyon College is a couple easy miles away! The entrance to Apple Valley is 6 minutes away. Visible neighbors in only one direction of the property. Shopping and amenities of Mount Vernon are about 5 minutes away. About an hour to Columbus suburbs.
  • This was our first air b n' b experience. I don't know how anyone else will ever top it. The barn is beautiful. Amanda is a great host. Our guests were so impressed they were looking into booking time there for their friends and family.

    Emily2020-03-15T00:00:00Z
  • We spent 3 nights at the Barn by Creekside with our four children and friends. Amanda’s communication was top notch. The barn itself is full of history and very welcoming to guests. We couldn’t have asked for a better start to a new Holiday tradition for our family. Cleanliness, space and the unusual warm weather allowed us to fully enjoy our Pre-Christmas outing. Thank you for the memories.

    Stephen2019-12-24T00:00:00Z

    Meredith2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • My college friends and I had an amazing weekend at The Barn. Our host, Amanda, was amazing from the time we checked in - providing quick responses to questions and suggesting local eateries and places of interest. The Barn is a large, beautiful location...that was very clean and comfortable. With future Alumni events sure to be planned, I woyld definitely return for more stays at The Barn.

  • Barbara’s house is in a wonderful location, close to downtown Mount Vernon and Kenyon College. She was communicative and available throughout our stay if we ran into any issues (which we did not, but it was good to know she was available!) I will definitely look into booking with Barbara again on my next visit to Mount Vernon!

    Bailey2020-02-23T00:00:00Z
  • Barbara was an AMAZING host. She provided information for check in well in advance. She left the lights on for us because we arrived late our first night. The instructions were clearly communicated. And she made herself accessible while we were there if needed. The house was ready for us. It was clean and comfortable. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at her place! I felt at home the minute we walked in. I highly recommend this home in the quaint town of Mount Vernon.

    Kelly2020-01-04T00:00:00Z
  • This weekend was the 3rd time I have stayed at Barbara's. My family enjoys staying there. We plan on staying there any time we go to Mt. Vernon. I really enjoy that we have a history and a rapport with Barbara.

    Andrew & Amy2019-12-29T00:00:00Z
  • Great house with plenty of space. Very comfortable, super clean, had everything we needed and more! Would stay here again for sure.

    Barbara2019-10-20T00:00:00Z

    Duane2019-10-06T00:00:00Z
  • Our stay in this Airbnb could not have gone smoother. From check-in to check-out, everything was top notch. The house was very clean and smelled nice; the kitchen was well stocked with appliances, pots, pans, cooking utensils, etc.; the bathrooms were well stocked, and the bedrooms were comfortable and cozy. We will stay here again should the need arise. Barbara is a gracious hostess!

    Paula2019-10-03T00:00:00Z
  • We enjoyed our time at Barbara’s place. The house was spotless, more than comfortable, and the perfect location if you are wanting to spend time at MVNU. Barbara, as a host, was warm, generous, and made sure our stay was all we needed it to be in the short time we were there. Highly recommended!

    Our rustic, country home awaits your stay! On 5 acres over-looking the Kokosing River our home offers gorgeous views of sunrise, sunset and Kenyon’s twinkling night lights. ~1 mile from Kenyon’s campus, off of 229, our home is a charming place for parents visiting their students, families celebrating a reunion or friends looking for a retreat. Originally built in 1852 (with a gorgeous apt added in '94), this home provides a cozy place to entertain and fall in love with the charms of rural Ohio.
  • Our second stay here in Gambier with Ryan and Sarah. We love the house, love the location. Ryan and Sarah are great hosts and were very attentive to our needs. Would definitely come again.

    Shane2019-12-03T00:00:00Z
  • Nice farm house right next to Kenyan’s campus. Great farm house feel. Perfect for a large group.

    Andrew2019-11-24T00:00:00Z
  • Great house, super close to the college.

    John2019-11-17T00:00:00Z
  • Comfortable old farm house in the country. Beautiful area.

    Shane2019-11-05T00:00:00Z
  • We stayed at Ryan and Sarah's place for Kenyon College Parents Weekend. The location is ideal- less than 2 miles to Kenyon, an easy 5 minute drive. The home was spacious and comfortable but also felt warm and cozy. We enjoyed cooking a dinner for 10 as the kitchen was well appointed. The refrigerator was stocked for us with the basics and there was plenty of coffee and tea to enjoy all weekend. The owners were very helpful and welcoming to us. You will find comfort and serenity staying at this home!

    Denise2019-10-20T00:00:00Z
  • Kenyon parents and alums will love the rich history and connection of this unique house to the college and anyone else will appreciate the ample space, charm and beautiful hilltop setting. Sarah communicates clearly and quickly, welcoming you into the space with a bottle of wine. Sarah also stocked the refrigerator with breakfast essentials, making our first morning at the house relaxing and enjoyable. If you need to prepare food, as we did for a post game tailgate, the kitchen is exceptional-- well stocked with the basics and beyond. Poke around and you will find a professional stand mixer, a pasta maker, sharp knives galore, and some new appliances mixed in with a beast of an old Viking range. Heavy well used pots and pans lend a definite Julia Child air to the space, and I wish I'd had more time to spend in it. Kokosing Chateau is a welcome addition to an area that is often difficult to find quality accommodations and we look forward to many return visits.

    Sarah2019-10-13T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend staying at this Gambier/ Kenyon College Airbnb home!! It's a large charming old farm house with a lovely addition. The sunsets are breathtaking since it sits up on a hill and that overlooks acres of rolling land that makes this area so special. The entrance to Kenyon campus is only 3 minutes by car.Bagels, fruit and an assortment of coffee was available for breakfast. I suggest the Village Inn in town for good lunches and dinner in a relaxed atmosphere. Book now! Don't hesitate 😊 You get a bottle of wine as a gift!

    Vee2019-10-10T00:00:00Z
  • This rustic but modernized 1800s farmhouse was the absolute perfect site for our 10-person family reunion over a weekend in September. Because all of the basics of hospitality were flawlessly seen to (bedding, linens, temp control, friendly signage to find things, wifi, cleanliness, etc.), I would just highlight the bonuses that we appreciated in the house: --Beauty of the natural setting (yard, surrounding countryside, view) and the fact that the house had many ways to access it totally or partially (sit outside, sit in a screened in porch, many different versions) --Stuff for kids to do and grownups-playing-along-with-kids to do, like: trampoline, tree swings, awesome hide-and-seek options, huge yards for frisbee, and nature exploring --A loaded kitchen!! that accommodated the cooking needs of a bunch of fairly snobby chefs and also easily allowed us to cook for a large group. E.g., down to things like sharp knives, cast iron cookery, all cooking basics we didn't bring (olive oil, salt, dressings, etc.) and many gas-powered range surfaces. --The house blends the old and the new in a way that allows you to appreciate the history of the house without feeling like you're roughing it at all. --Easy access to short, meaningful excursions: Kokosing Gap Trail, creeking in the Kokosing River, Kenyon Student Farm, and of course Kenyon College and Gambier downtown. Our hosts were really generous with their time ahead of and during our stay in helping us pick the right local activities to suit our interests.

  • This is a must stop for anyone riding the Ohio to Erie bike trail. It is so close you can see it from the trail and they have a sign welcoming cyclists. The coffee station and breakfast foods available were great touches too.

    Matt2019-10-17T00:00:00Z
  • Pamela’s place had a very “outdoorsy” Cabin-like feel to it. It was a fun place to experience and the food in the fridge/freezer was an awesome plus. My wife and I had a great time staying there!

    Martin2019-07-28T00:00:00Z

    Tara2019-07-21T00:00:00Z
  • I highly recommend Pam's Bluebird Barn! This was our second visit to the Barn! Pam responds quickly to messages and she is so nice! You can tell they have put a lot of effort and time into developing this space. She offers a stocked fridge with breakfast type foods which was much appreciated. The beds are comfy and the spaces are clean.

    Tara2019-07-20T00:00:00Z
  • It’s a pretty good place to stay. I strongly recommend

    Naga2019-07-13T00:00:00Z
  • Bluebird Barn is the most darling place! My boyfriend & I stayed for a night and we hated to leave the next day. It's just so quaint and peaceful! The kitchen was fully stocked with snacks and breakfast foods. She even had extra toothbrushes in the bathroom for if you forgot yours! We totally loved it and we plan on returning again!

    Adam2019-06-02T00:00:00Z

    Rebecca2019-10-06T00:00:00Z

  • The Bluebird B&B is a unique and peaceful place for a weary road traveler, for someone just passing thru or even a family experience. It's quiet, and plenty of things to do around the area. There's even a bike bath behind their place. Pam and Jeff are great people and accommodating. You stay in a converted barn with an open air design that's decorated nicely, comfortable and affordable. Id recommend giving this place a try. I'll be back when I come thru again

    Dean2019-08-09T00:00:00Z

    Danielle2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • Wow, this was a great place to say. A step up from camping, I think not!!!! 10 steps up! It is very rustic in a glam sort of way. This place was so cute and clean!!!!!! Although rustic I did not see mold or bugs and every thing was so clean and cute. The breakfast foods were a bonus! Yummy. 5 STARS for sure.

    Beautiful country guest house, built in 1875. Situated atop 60 pastoral wooded and rolling acres. Charmingly decorated in whites and creams, the atmosphere is serene, yet fresh and bright. A nod to the past, with a contemporary kick in the pants.
    This charming home has been in our family for generations, and has many stories to tell. There is no better view in Knox County than the one from the kitchen window, overlooking acres of rolling hills, fields and trees. I hope you enjoy the serenity of this place, just 3 miles from the center of town but an eternity in time and space. Because we are at the end of a country road, you will not hear traffic or noise–only the sounds of nature unfolding around you. Over the years, the wildlife has found refuge here, and has grown to include an incredible variety of creatures–red-tail hawk, osprey, deer, rabbits, fox, to name a few. If you watch quietly and wait patiently, you are sure to see a few!
    Quiet, paved country road winds for a mile with pastures and animals along the way. Perfect for morning strolls with a cup of hot coffee–or vigorous run!
  • Felicia’s is a completely beautiful home within the most peaceful landscape. It’s everything and more than you’d expect with its relaxing and tranquil space. A fabulous stay.

    Gina2019-10-15T00:00:00Z
  • Each time around August, for the past 3 years, my sisters and I take a little drive and come here for a get away...each year they say, “this was the best stay here, this particular trip”. And every year we’ve been lucky to cooler weather, and sit outside and play cards on the back patio, well after dark. This year we heard some coyotes...it was beautiful. Star gazing is a must! Nanette has created an oasis for guests here. From the stylish decor, which makes this farmhouse even more comfortable, to the well stocked kitchen. The views are beautiful and it really makes for a relaxed setting. The views inside, however, are awesome! Each room is eye candy...all in muted, soft neutral tones...it’s so comfortable and we always end up bringing meals to cook because it’s so fun to hang out, drink wine, listen to music and make dinner. Coffee in the back sunroom...Walks near the meadows...For me, I have begun to cherish this getaway...thanks Nanette for being awesome...

    Marydee2019-08-25T00:00:00Z
  • Tranquil and relaxing! I loved the amazing views out the window! Such a gorgeous place to unwind from the city life.

    Melissa2019-08-18T00:00:00Z
  • You will not find a better place to stay for a special trip! The house was beautifully decorated and the property was right out of a high end travel magazine. Such a gem! I would recommend staying here just to enjoy the surroundings. Nanette's interior design was truly exquisite! I can't say enough good things about the hosts, the house and the beautiful property this house sits on! Even if you live close to Mt. Vernon, this place is excellent for a week end get away!

    Jamie2019-08-04T00:00:00Z
  • The house is just as cute and chic as pictured, but the land and views from the back patio are absolutely beautiful! Nanette and Mike were so kind and friendly, and were also super helpful when our baby monitor didn’t work and we left behind a few things. I would absolutely stay here again and recommend it to anyone.

    Melanie2019-07-28T00:00:00Z
  • Idyllic setting at the end of a country road. The vistas are amazing! To the east, rolling pastoral land with birds playing in the giant Oak trees, bunnies nibbling at the white dutch clover flowers, and the delightful sounds of a hooting owl at dusk and dawn. To the north, there is a large pond in front of their home down the road which has beautiful and majestic trees for the perfect picturesque backdrop.

  • Beautiful home .... on a beautiful piece of property.. you literally feel like you step back in time.. to a simpler way of life. A real get away from city life. Peaceful & serene..the home owner shows off her design background. Every piece of furniture and knick knacks purposely picked out ...♥️✌🏼
