About Carol Haramis

I am the 5th generation to live and work on our 167 year old farm. I grew up playing in the barns, swimming in our sandstone quarry and riding the fields on my horses. My husband , George, and I grow Christmas trees and daylilies and we hold a month long Fall Festival in October called Pumpkin Pandemonium. In my 'free' time I love to garden, hike and volunteer with dog rescue.Our family includes 3 rescue cats and 3 rescue dogs. We have lived and worked all over the world but the beauty and tranquility of the farm, the Village of Peninsula and the Cuyahoga Valley always calls us home.

Carol Haramis purchased this apartment in 1848

What makes this apartment unique

I love the farm for it's beautiful gardens, secluded trails in the woods and the rolling Christmas tree fields surrounding the old farmhouse. The front porch is a great place to greet the day with a hot cup of coffee. Relaxing on the gazebo watching sunset with a glass of wine or a soft drink is the perfect end to the day. And if you like to be outdoors after dark you can tell stories around the fire pit or join a night bike ride on the CVNP Towpath Trail.The farm is a great place to base for hiking or biking in the Cuyahoga Valley National Park. Downhill Skiing and snowboarding can be found 2 miles away and there is access to National Park cross country ski trails right here on the farm. Downtown Peninsula with it's shops, restaurants, galleries and museums is less than 1/2 mile away.We are located 15 minutes from theaters, malls, museums, county and national parks and much much more. The city of Akron is 20 minutes to the south and Cleveland is 25-30 minutes north with highway access to both places only 2 miles away.

Wonderful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Very close to hiking and railroad. Very private. Own private entrance, backyard with bonfire, and parking spot. Our toddler enjoyed finding fairies hidden throughout the fields. The bed is comfortable and you have everything you need!

Time out in the country is just what we needed

  • 5 of 5

The apartment (at the back of the farmhouse) was spacious, well furnished; kitchen well equipped. Our host was very accommodating - provided wood and materials for a great ring fire outside. This is a Christmas tree farm that sometimes holds events (so if you want peace and quiet, make sure you ask if there are any events planned). You can walk a couple of trails that are right on the property. Bring hiking boots though because it can be soggy.

Conveniently located little hideaway

  • 5 of 5

This place was conveniently located near the national park, as well as other amenities. But we were pleasantly surprised to find our children enjoyed the farm most of all! Carol and George were most friendly and hospitable hosts.

This rental was clean, well supplied and organized. It was nice to use utensils, dishes, etc. that were obviously purchased recently for the rental rather than cast-offs from the family. A real treat was a three gallon water cooler in the kitchen. There are just two of us. The rental can sleep 4. A third and fourth person would have to sleep in a bed in an alcove separated from the great room by a curtain. We used the bed and the rest of this area for our suitcases and gear so the rest of the unit remained very pleasantly uncluttered. The rental is attached to the back of the farmhouse on a beautiful Christmas tree farm. The owner is on hand, constantly working on the property with an obvious focus on the many flowers in hanging pots and in the beds . She was attentive but not intrusive. The location, Peninsula, is in the center of Cuyahoga Valley National Park and a perfect location for visiting all parts of the park. Peninsula has two very good restaurants and nearby Hudson has a couple of nice restaurants for those looking for finer dining. We have already recommended this rental to family members.
