Photos and Description of the West Union vacation cabin rental

Lodge, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

The Round House is hand-built, from the cedar shake exterior to the pine and cedar interior. Large two story windows fill the great room with sunlight. It is located at the end of a half mile private road, and is totally secluded.

Our guests rave about the quiet and peaceful atmosphere. One of our guests said in the guestbook: “We leave here a changed people. The peace is consuming. The beauty immense. The sounds refreshing. Thank you for reviving my soul.”

Sleeps 8 guests (all on the upper floors).

Bedroom #1 Master - queen bed and private bath

Bedroom #2 -- king bed with adjoining bath

Alcove #1 -- double sofa bed

Alcove #2 -- double bed futon

Cupola room -- queen air mattress (upon request)

Bathrooms 2 1/2 baths. The full baths are on the second floor, the half bath on the first floor.

Pet friendly. Your dog will enjoy romping and exploring the woods and fields surrounding the cabin.

Amenities. We offer amenities comparable to a boutique hotel – crisp hand ironed sheets and pillow cases, handsome comforters on the beds, fluffy towels and natural soap. We do our own laundry, without the harsh chemicals and industrial finishing of a commercial laundry.

Cozy living room with fireplace. Relax in the living room before a sparkling fire, surrounded by warm pine paneling with cedar trim. We supply local seasoned hand split hardwood, kindling, newspaper and fire lighter.

Fully equipped kitchen. Prepare your family meals in our well stocked kitchen. We include flatware and china, wine glasses, coffee maker and filters.

Dining room seats up to 12 guests. Enjoy your meals gathered around the large dining room table . . . or make it a game table or jigsaw puzzling table for great family memories.

Free WiFi for email or light browsing; not for streaming movies or the like.

Entertainment. We have a flat screen TV with satellite service and a DVD player. Bring your own movies.

Deck. Out on the deck overlooking the woods is a gas grill and table and chairs for dining and lounging. Have your meals on the sun-dappled deck (weather permitting). We do not have a hot tub.

Outdoor fire ring. In the evening, start a fire in the fire pit by the barn and roast marshmallows. Star gaze from the big field next to the cabin, where the Milky Way shines across the sky.

Immerse yourself in nature. Your children will be intrigued to stay in a cabin surrounded by woods. Stroll over to the log barn where you enjoy a spectacular view of the Appalachian foothills in the distance. Walk up our woodland path to the cave. Bring a flashlight to explore the cave.

About Adams County:

Adams County is one of the most beautifully scenic counties in Ohio. The Great Serpent Mound is the largest effigy mound in the country. The Amish community offers shops and tidy well kept farms. The southern boundary is the Ohio River, with gorgeous views, fishing and boating. Nature Conservancy’s Edge of Appalachia Preserve and numerous state natural areas showcase the county’s unique features.

Suggested activities:

Visit the Great Serpent Mound and its visitor center. Check out the Wheat Ridge Amish community shops and well kept farms. Travel the Quilt Barn Trail and see the rural countryside by car. Follow the ride of Confederate John Hunt Morgan and his Raiders through Adams County in 1863.

In neighboring Brown County, visit the boyhood home of US Grant in Georgetown; see where Liza reportedly crossed the Ohio River on the ice in Uncle Tom’s Cabin. Visit the Rankin House above the Ripley bluff, where lanterns hung to guide slaves escaping across the river from Kentucky.

Hike in one of the many nature preserves and natural areas in Adams County. Our favorites include Chaparral Prairie (a remnant prairie a mile away). Buzzardsroost Trail (a moderately strenuous hike in the Edge of Appalachia Preserve) and Davis Memorial Nature Preserve (features a pristine stream, high rock cliffs and a geologic fault in the cliff face).

Enjoy birding on our farm or in the nature preserves.

Fish our pond (catch and release only), the ponds in Tranquility Natural Area, Adams Lake State Park, Ohio Brush Creek or the Ohio River.

Have dinner at Murphin Ridge Inn or Moyer Winery. Murphin Ridge is an excellent restaurant in an old farm house near the Amish community. Moyer offers fine food in a dining room overlooking the Ohio River.

The lRound House features a hiking trail through the woods to a natural cave (bring a flashlight) then beyond to an old log barn, vineyard, ponds and view of the hills at the beginning of Appalachia. Our guests rave at the seclusion, quiet, wildlife and peaceful atmosphere. The house itself has many large windows and is filled with sunlight on sunny days. The woodwork is hand done and reminiscent of a boat interior.
