About RC Barnhart

Currently a network tech from Athens, OH. Grew up in the area and enjoy Burr Oak State Park.

RC Barnhart purchased this cabin in 2012

Why RC Barnhart chose Homer

We resurrected this little cabin in the summer of 2012. We gutted it and upgraded the electric, plumbing, added a master bedroom and engineered a bonus loft space that gives the cabin a beautiful, open feeling. It's been a fun project and we are continually tweaking and upgrading.

My wife and I wanted our own cozy place to get away and thought while we are not using it we can let others enjoy the space. From the red oak mantle and hickory beams, to the cherry and walnut custom ladder up to the loft, I think there are elements in this cabin that can not be found at any other cabin. A lot of time, energy and love was put into building this home.

What makes this cabin unique

Great weekend getaway for my boyfriend, pup and I!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our weekend at this cabin! The cabin itself was clean and exactly as shown in pictures. We were able to take a walk to Burr Oak Lake once we found a hiking trail on the map. It's a pretty big park and we were only about a half mile away from the bobcat trail which was pretty cool. The hot tub was wonderful, and we were also able to use the fire pit to roast hot dogs. I also loved the fact there was a coffee machine, pots and pans, and even a small blender! And the indoor gas fireplace was great. My dog was comfortable, too, and really loved her stay :)

The only problem was the wifi wasn't set up when we got there - the system actually wasn't even turned on. We did contact the owner and he replied right away and we were able to get a connection for a short time, but it was very weak and we lost it again. I used my phone as a hotspot in the end, which used up a lot of data.

Other than that we loved our weekend getaway. Thank you so much for letting us stay!

Too much going on in the area

  • 3 of 5

The owners are responsive and flexible. Property was clean and one can tell that the owners care about their guests.


While the property is priced reasonably the setting may not be suitable for those seeking a more secluded experience. Cabin is located in an area with multiple properties adjacent providing little in the way of seclusion. Further to this point, the adjacent properties are relatively close and quite honestly in some cases represent a bit of an eyesore. There were multiple non-running vehicles and other such non-operational items on the adjacent properties. This is typical of rural property and I mean no offense but when city folk like me are looking for a getaway in the woods seclusion and setting are high on the list of interests.

To the owners please accept my gratitude for a clean and comfortable rental and thank you for promptly returning the security deposit. I always leave things as I find them or better when possible.

Owner's Response: Burr Oak State Park is nestled in the Appalachian Hills and is home to a diverse group of people. There are hunters, fisherman, and sportsmen alike that enjoy the area and scenery. As we cannot control adjacent properties from the main dock rd, it is important to not let one residence spoil it for the rest. The cabin is on a private drive and from the front of the cabin are few other cabins within sight. A truly 100% secluded setting comes at a premium price and we certainly cannot dispute there are other properties. We have set competitive rates keeping all things relative. We can say that our cabin also sits directly adjacent to the state land and the view from our private, closed-in back porch is very secluded as there is nothing but the forest. Thanks for your comments about our hospitality and our specific property. We strive to be customer service focused and want everyone to be happy while staying in our cabin. We ensure a clean, well equipped cabin with as many amenities as possible to make ones stay easy and comfortable.

Everything we needed was in the cabin. The cabin was beautiful, the property was beautiful. We really enjoyed the hot tub as well. I love how it was away from the cabin, it was soo peaceful and relaxing. The owners were super nice and answered all of our questions, even late at night. Our experience couldn't have been better!!

Holiday Escape

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed at this property over Labor Day weekend. The cabin had everything we could have wanted and more. The inside is extremely inviting, with all the amenities we needed (TV/DVD player, wifi, full size fridge, coffee maker, pots/pans/dishes, and cleaning supplies). The fire pit area is perfect for sitting outside, while the screened-in porch provided a great place to hang out on a very rainy day. The hot tub was clean and well maintained, and a nice way to relax and enjoy the outdoors at night. There is a Kroger about 10 minutes away, where we were able to get groceries and local firewood. We didn't get to explore the area much, as we were enjoying our time at the cabin so much that we didn't want to leave. It was a perfect weekend getaway!

Lovely and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful getaway for my boyfriend and I. We spent a lot of time in the hot tub and cooking food. I loved that they supplied us with all our cookware needs. You don't have to pack pans or plates or stuff like tha , because they have everything. They have literally everything in the cabin that you could ever possibly need ( except for a cookie tray). It's an hour away from Hocking Hills, which wasn't so bad if you make one day trip out of it. It was nice to swim at the Burr Oak Lake because not as many people were there like at the Hocking location. It's also conveniently located close to a Kroger. They don't have a washer or dryer, so make sure you bring extra clothes. They don't have cable or satellite, so what we did was bring our computer and some cables to hook up to the TV and watch Netflix on. Actually, they might have cable and we just never figured it out. It was just me and my boyfriend in the cabin, which fit us just fine. I could imagine one or two others staying with us, but it might be a little small for six people, which is how many it can sleep. There's also a grill on the back patio that I don't think works anymore, but we just found a grill in the sunroom that we didn't get to try out before we left, so maybe that one works. All in all, I really can't say worse about this cabin. It was a fantastic experience and I would totally come back again. I love the rustic look to it. I just thought of something: the showerhead isn't very powerful. The water pressure is great, but maybe switching the showerhead would give better results. Everything's new in the cabin and I loved it so much. Again, thanks for the great memories.

Owner's Response: Thanks for staying with us! The gas grill does work, the propane was out and the replacement just needed to be connected :). Glad you had a good time and hope you make it back again soon! Thanks! Heather & RC
