Pictures on the 28 Acres and More Inside Cottage


Here is a list of your testimonials

Turkey Time

This picture was take on the nature trail on the Mercedes Property.  It is rare to see them but they are there.

Come walk the trail

Never seen a bear or bigfoot


Deer Time

This fine buck had his photo take very close to the spot where the turkeys posed on the nature trail at Mercedes.



Must see outhouse hill

This is a 100 year old outhouse.  The wind on this hill has disassembled it many times but we have been able to reassemble it each time with more reinforcement than the time before. People love to make a photo of them standing between this old out house and the sassafras tree.

The campfire ring and picknic table are here too.

Nothing else like it


Fall Colors It does get better than this

The rain took down many leaves before the colors became massive and brilliant.  This is an acutal picture for the fall of 2013.

come and see


Creek Tub Probably a First

This was the old hot tub that lasted 21 years but dies in 2013.  It would have cost 5 dollars to have it halled away.  I came up with this but did not realize the back breaking work that would be involved with moving all these rocks.  And then when the  water is slow the tub does not stay full.  I have leaks and must stop them to make this a pretty site because it is not pretty when it is half full.

I have seen crawdeads in here!  BIG ONES

Come and Enjoy

Pet Rules (Must be Kept in Kitchen on Linoleum they are not Permitted on Carpet or Furniture Pet Gate Provided)

We accept cats, and dogs who are well behaved, quiet, housebroken, and non-aggressive. There is a limit of 3 pets. We will charge a one-time fee of $30 per visit for the first pet, and $10 for each additional pet. No weight limit.

As a courtesy to all future guests, pets must be flea-free.

Please do not bring dirty dogs into the cottage. Plan to bring towels to wipe off wet or dirty fur. Dogs are not permitted in the Jacuzzi. Bathing should take place outside; you can use the water spigot on the side of the cottage.

If you leave your dog or cat unattended at the cottage, it must be confined in a crate. A pet left alone in strange surroundings is very likely to express it's frustration by chewing, scratching or marking it's surroundings: in this case, the cottage.

Dogs must be kept on a leash when outside the cottage. They may encounter other dogs, see a deer, or find other interesting diversions which would encourage them to run. There are dogs, cats, horses, etc. in the area which should not be chased. Dog visitors in the Hocking Hills are, unfortunately, routinely lost in the miles of woods because the owners did not keep them leashed. (ID tags are highly recommended).

Persistent barking is not permitted; please attend to dogs that are barking.

Please clean up after your dog around the cottage property.  You must bring plastic baggies for waste pickup, deposit plastic bags in larger plastic bag and leave outside by the garage door.

Any damage to the cottage property caused by your pet, will be charged to you in accordance with our Rental Agreement.

For the inexperienced pet traveler, may we suggest:

f clean, flea-free bed/blanket for sleeping

f towels for drying wet fur & feet

f leash and collar

f ID tags (very important!)

f water bottle and dish for traveling

f crate with comfy bedding

f plastic baggies for cleaning up messes

f bones or familiar toys for those times when you may need to leave your pet alone

f litter pan for cats

f water proof mat for food & water bowls

f keep your vet's phone number handy

Hiking Restrictions for Dogs:

State parks permit dogs but they must be leashed. Nature preserves, like Conkle's Hollow and Rock Bridge, do not permit dogs.

PLEASE do not ever leave your dog locked in your car during hot weather, even for a short time with the windows cracked. Death from heat stroke is a real possibility.
