B&B is located within minutes of 5 Ohio State Parks, 2 Ohio State Nature Preserves, Wayne National Forest and the Hockhocking-Adena bike trail (Nelsonville to Athens) which runs along the scenic Hocking River. See attached photos for many additional area attractions. Nestled in 25 wooded acres, there are on-site marked hiking trails for guests. Numerous antique and craft shops are in the area to include 2 shops I formerly owned: Wind Chime Shop and Christmas Treasures. Summer & winter fun.
If you like seclusion, this is the place for you! Nestled among the trees on 25 acres - this B&B offers total privacy. No neighbors within sight. Safe & secure parking area within steps of a private guest entrance. You will be greeted by the owner upon arriving and he will give you a tour of available rooms explaining operation of the hot tub, NordicTrack tread mill, air conditioning, etc. WIFI is now available to guests - 3 free GB's. Usage above 3 GB's costs $10 / GB.
You will have access to a super-size bedroom with a king-size bed & Directv; overlooking loft with 2 single beds for children (6-15) - loft is accessed by a sturdy drop-down stairway; large bath with tub & shower; office / kitchen area which has a treadmill, microwave, refrigerator plus a large desk; large open-air deck with hot tub, table with umbrella, 4 chairs & 2 rocking chairs; and an open-air covered porch overlooking the deck with an old-fashioned porch swing and table/chairs for two for dining outside; there is also a second porch available to guests that is screened-in with a hammock, table & chairs. There is a lower level available to guests that features a pool table, full kitchen, half bath and library (see attached photos) - this area is accessed by going outside and walking a short distance around the house to the rear entrance then down some steps. Cell phone coverage is fairly good for some providers - spotty areas of coverage throughout the county. Guests have their own private entrance and living quarters. WIFI is now available to guests - 3 free GB's. Usage above 3 GB's costs $10 / GB.
Interaction with guests
Owner lives on the premises (same house) and will be available at all times if you need assistance. You can interact with the owner as desired - your total privacy will be respected. (I do enjoy chatting if that is your thing.) I am new at being a B&B operator, but well-accustomed to working with the public having owned & operated 2 gift shops in the area for 20 years.
