What Past Guests Are Saying
Turner Girls Annual Retreat
Great place for a sisters retreat!
The cottage was everything we were told it would be. There were no problems with anything, it all worked as it should. We loved the privacy, the setting, and the front porch! The only thing, and it is a very, very minor thing, that we didn't care for were the star shaped kitchen cabinet pulls -- they were a bit awkward. Lovely place, and we would definitely consider it for another retreat, and would gladly recommend it to others. Thanks!!!
Nice and Quiet
Close to town but far enough away to feel like you are in the forest...and you are.
We loved the cottage!
We so enjoyed our weekend in Stoney Creek cottage. It was all just as described. There were so many personal touches that made us feel so welcome and comfortable - like books and games and thick comfy bathrobes. Everything we could possibly think of was provided for us.
We spent the weekend there to enjoy family time. The weather didn't cooperate for us to see Tecumpseh! But we just stayed in instead.
The yard was beautiful and alive with wildlife to entertain us. The hot tub was fun and a relaxing way to end the day.

Perfection Once again!
This was our second of what I am sure will be many visits to Stoney Creek Cottage.
We loved the cottage the first time we stayed there and loved it just as much this time around.
It really is a little piece of heaven.
See you next summer!
This is the 2nd time my girlfriends had a weekend away to Stoney Creek. We had a blast! We went in april both times and the location is beautiful. We enjoyed sitting outside by the creek, the hot tub, and built fires both inside and outside at night. We plan on going back again.
Fun, fun time!!!
Wonderful relaxing time with family.
It had everything from a stream to skip stones to the hot tub. Even a roll of alum foil so the meat would not fall thru the grate. We enjoyed the feeders as the birds and animals came to eat. It was close to Old Man's Cave, Farmmer's Market in Chillicothe, and also Tecemsceh the outdoor drama. Our family had a wonderful experience.
"Absolutely the best Vacation Spot in Ohio"
What a beautiful cottage!!! This cottage was so neat and clean. There were lots of linens and everything one could need in the kitchen, In the summer, the cottage is so cool and in the winter the fireplace is a touch
of home, The location is perfect. It is quiet and not really that far to the town. We loved everything about the cottage and can't wait to visit since the master bedroom has been improved.
Nice Getaway in Chillicothe
We found Stoney Creek Cottage on the Tecumseh web page and decided to take a two night getaway from Columbus. The cottage was sparkling clean, well equipped and adorably decorated with so many knickknacks we were still noticing new ones on day three! The hot tub was clean and a good size. The creek behind the cottage was more stoney than creek--not sure if that is its usual state or if the dry summer played a part in it. We filled the bird feeders in the back yard from the seed supply stored in the super clean and tidy garage. Birds quickly arrived at the feeders and we watched the male cardinal stake his claim among the other birds. We enjoyed watching the hummingbird feeders by the front porch in the mornings. The owner takes great pride in his cottage and seems to have thought of everything. Notes, signs and instructions were everywhere. We greatly appreciated the notebook with lists of things to do and detailed maps. We enjoyed the backstage tour and performance of Tecumseh. We explored nearby Scioto Trail State Park-- hiked around the two lakes and climbed the fire tower for a beautiful view. There are enough woods and property around the cottage to make you feel as though you are "out there," but the street is visible from the front porch, the neighbor's house is visible from the patio and the dogs being boarded/groomed at the kennel down the street could be heard barking one day. So, not too far out. The cottage is a great alternative to a hotel if you are staying in the area and a nice getaway anytime. We would highly recommend this cottage.
This is the most well kept, cleanest place we have stayed at sin
We have been coming to Ohio the past 2 years mainly during deer season and have stayed at several different places. This by far was the best! It is very clean, cozy and affordable. We felt as comfortable here as we do at home. The hot tub is an added bonus. The grounds are beautiful and the location was great for us. I would highly recommend this cottage to anyone!!!
We booked Stoney Creek Cottage as an extended family stay and it was absolutely perfect. The setting was beautiful and the cottage was roomy enough for 3 adults, a teenager and a preschooler. We had everything we needed and really hated to leave! We will definitely go back.
We had someone in our group with a wheelchair and the owner was very responsive to specific questions we had about accessibility and really went above and beyond to get us the information we needed.

Great Family Weekend Getaway!
My family and I were looking for a nice place to getaway for the weekend and Stoney Creek Cottage was perfect! We wanted a place where we could cook our own meals, relax inside and out, and just enjoy one another's company. The cottage had everything we could need. We enjoyed making meals in the kitchen and cooking outside over the fire. Some of us enjoyed hiking on the local trails, other enjoyed reading in the beautiful backyard, and one very much enjoyed a comfortable recliner in front of the tv :-)
As the opportunity allow, I would definitely return. We enjoyed the nice summer weather, but I have no doubt that it would be a great place to go any time of year.
Great alternative to staying at a hotel. I was in Chillicothe for buisness and found the cottage to be very quiet outside, and the hot tube was just what I needed at the end of the day. The cottage is very clean and has everything you will need for an extended stay. I highly recommend Stoney Creek Cottage; stay for a week or a weekend getaway and forget the hotel.

Feels like home!
It's such a cozy confortable little cabin. It almost felt like home as soon as I entered. The location was a great mid way point for my husband and I to meet up with our son and his family. We were not looking to spend a fortune, just a place that was clean and confortable. We found this little cottage was just perfect. It was probably the cleanest place we have ever stayed and was equiped with all the necessities. This cabin is out in the country, which we loved. It's close enough to town if you want to go out to eat or get groceries. If you like a quite place peaceful place, give it a try. If you are a total city person and must have the finest things you should go elsewhere, but you will be missing out!
Home away from Home... but more Relaxing!
Four of us decided to have a Girls Getaway Weekend and stumbled upon the Stoney Creek Cottage while searching online. We were very happy with the accomodations. The rate was extremely reasonable considering the location, ambiance, and amenities. We all concluded it would be a great place to bring back our respective families or possibly schedule another social gathering with friends. Couldn't have been happier. The only item I can think of is the clothes dryer. Worked fine but very noisey. I figure if that's all I can complain about...we'll be back!
My husband and I came down from Canada to rent this adorable little cottage. I am from the area, and we wanted someplace close to visit with friends and family for the holidays. We came across this cottage through an online search and we are so glad that we found it. The cabin is adorable. Decor is perfect. The cleanliness of the cottage is amazing. And you want for nothing here! All the utensils, towels, pots, pans, dishes etc. are here! The grounds and views outside are amazing. We had an awesome time and will be back next year!
Very nice, private and relaxing
This is a nice, quiet little get away spot. It has about everything you need. Nice , new hot tub, stocked fireplace in the house and TV with DVD player.

We had a wonderful time at David Polks cottage over Thanksgiving
This cottage had everything that was needed to make our weekend perfect for our family! David did not leave out one thing when it came to details! My family wanted to sit out in the hot tub, but it was November and it was very chilly outside. One of our children returned with robes for all four of us! We had some laundry to do and detergent and fabric softner was provided! Other than our groceries, everything else was at our fingertips. The decor is so cozy. We really enjoyed the fireplace, whenever we ran out of wood inside, there was an ample supply in the garage. We would highly recommend this cottage to anyone. It was a great place to get away and relax, yet close enough to the city if you needed some night life! We will stay there again!
Hunting in Chilicothe
This cabin is loaded with cute features. The hot tub was a welcomed relief after a day in the woods.
The cottage was excactly how it was described. Everything was beautiful. Directions for everything which made things alot easier!!! Would love to stay again and would highly recommend to others
A Piece of Heaven
We throughly enjoyed our stay at "Stoney Creek". We wanted for nothing; everything we could possibly want or need was provided. The cottage was neat and clean; a perfect "get-a-way". We enjoyed sitting outside near the pretty little stream watching the wildlife. We plan to return, soon!
A great time at a great getaway!
Our visit to Stoney Creek Cottage was such a wonderful experience for my family! We spent time wading in the creek behind the cottage, fishing at the nearby lake, and stretching out in front of the fireplace watching movies. The accommodations were great. The atmoshpere was even better. The only thing better than spending time at the cottage, was spending it with my family.
Judge & Mrs. Timothy S. Hogan
Wonderful place to relax -peaceful, private, great place to read and have hot soup in front of the fire. Great for a weekend getaway!
Just what we hoped for.
We were attending an event in Scioto Trail State Forest, and this cabin was located perfectly.
Warm, cozy and beautifully decorated. For me, the cottage was not to far from home (only 70 miles) but seemed like a world away.
A perfect little getaway whether traveling alone or with company. The surrounding beauty of Scioto Trails is absolutely breathtaking and just adds to the enjoyment of this cottage.
The owner is wonderful to work with and goes above and beyond to make sure you are comfortable with your stay and the area in which you are staying. Very willing to answer any questions you may have.
